  • "Great location for exploring the highlands, property was clean and comfortable and kitchen etc was well equipped."

    Newtonmore was just a short walk away for shops and food.

  • "Lovely apartment, very clean and comfortable."

    Great to be in the town centre so that we could walk to lots of things, including the station to go further afield. Lovely view of the river too.

  • "We loved The Coach House."

    The house was very clean and well equipped. The shower in the ensuite was the best shower I've ever had. Really comfortable beds. Location was good - just off the A9 - and excellent for visiting Aviemore, hill walking, birdwatching and walking round lakes. Beautiful area. Only downside was that the living area was a bit compact. When four were round the dining table, space was a bit tight between the kitchen and lounge but it was fine for a week for four of us. Washing machine is shared and in the basement. You'll need four pound coins for it and for the dryer. There is a very well-equipped Coop just along the road (five minutes drive), And you must try the Rowan Tree Hotel for a meal. Utterly incredible for all the family. We'd go back again.

  • "We spent a lovely week at The Coach House, it was very comfortable, well equipped and as we arrived on a cold wet day it was great to step into a warm house."

    We did lots of walking, bird watching, especially enjoyed the Wild Cat Trail around Newtonmore, absolutely stunning, so many various habitats. Very good location for exploring, will have to return.

  • "The house was very comfortable and felt like home from home."

    Great location and really peaceful. Only one suggestion for improvement, the single beds are not the most comfortable. We had a wonderful week. Thank you.

  • "Loved the location, the walking around the cottage is first class and you can vary the length."

    Good for visiting many outdoor activities. We were up for a golf competition In Aviemore, which is easily accessible via the main road, which is a short distance from the property but we had no traffic noise whatsoever. The cottage is very roomy and well equipped, the owner was good at communicating all the checkin information. As someone else has mentioned, when you extend the table to seat everyone it does make the lounge a little tight but I would book this accommodation if the golf competition returns to Aviemore as it matched our needs fully.

  • "This cottage is lovely."

    so handy for the town and all the wonderful facilities in the area. There is plenty of parking right outside the door, a shop at the garage 3 minutes walk away and a Cafe next door. The furnishings are very comfortable and the equipment good. I would highly recommend this destination for anyone wanting to spend time in the National Park.

    The Coach House Cottage was an excellent base and provided everything we needed. The Letterbox Restaurant was very good indeed but you do need to book. Well stocked Co-op nearby for essentials.

  • "The Coach House is situated in a wide valley surrounded by mountains."

    It is 30mins from Aviemore, about an hour from Inverness, 40mins from Abernethy Forest and Loch Garten and there are plenty of trails to walk nearby. We thoroughly enjoyed the "Wildcat Trail" because of the varied landscape that it took us through from river bank to gorge to hill walking, through forest, over moorland and meadow! There was even the odd red squirrel to keep us company along with numerous sheep and a couple of horses, we were also warned of pigs but didn't see any. The apartment was EXTREMELY well-equipped, nicely laid out and so cosy! Our beds were freshly made and there was a very welcome tea tray laid out, perfect after a 10hr journey! Had I known we would be so well looked after I would have left more stuff at home! I have a bag of bits that always comes with us containing scissors, a sharp knife, peeler, cling film, foil, kitchen roll......etc, etc. I still used my own this time but, should I be lucky enough to return, the extra space in the car would be appreciated by my passengers. I would simply replace anything I used up or leave a spare for anything close to running out. Wonderful! Those that previously wished for Wi-Fi will be delighted to know broadband is now fully installed. In summary: Great location for Cairngorm exploring, no need to overload your car with kitchen necessities and a fabulous welcome awaits!

The property

Situated in the heart of the Cairngorms National Park in the village of Newtonmore lies The Coach House, a well-appointed ground-floor apartment.

The Inverness area, the beaches of the East Coast and the West Coast are all within driving distance in a day.

The North to South train stop at the local station in Newtonmore. With off-road parking and a spacious, shared garden, this convenient holiday home is an ideal base for a family holiday to the picture-perfect landscapes of Scotland.

Red squirrels can be seen scampering on the tall Scots pines which surround the garden containing picnic tables for the guests and there is a large grass area for games.

Creag Dubh hill ,a local landmark, overlooks the garden. On arrival at the property, step into the open-plan living space and discover plush seating where you can kick off your shoes and relax after your journey. Have the chef of your group rustle up a delicious dinner in the kitchen area and sit down to dine as a family while you plan your day’s adventures. When sleep calls, take advantage of two well-presented bedrooms, the first being a double with an en-suite shower room and the second being a twin, ideal for younger guests or friends sharing. When you wake, enjoy your morning coffee with your loved ones, before freshening up in the bathroom and heading out for a day filled with fun. Nearby, culture vultures of your group can visit Britain’s first open air museum, The Highland Folk Museum, where you can step back in time and experience life in the Highlands from 1700s to 1950s.

There is no charge for entry and is open April to Oct.

The Clan Macpherson Museum is only 10 minutes walk from The Coach House and it holds the history of the famous clan. Step into nature with a day at the Invereshie and Inshriach National Nature Reserve which is perfect when you want to stretch your legs and explore, or perhaps the Highland Wildlife Park for a chance to meet an array of exotic animals.

Golden eagles and ospreys can be seen nesting and flying in the surrounding environment.

The local wild Cat Trail is on the doorstep and is an excellent day’s walk.

First get information from Wild Cat centre, opposite the Post Office in Newtonmore. Further afield, take a trip to Landmark Forest Adventure Park for a family-friendly day out with rides and both indoor and outdoor activities to enjoy. Of course, you can scrap the itinerary and relish in the exceptional beauty that is the Cairngorms National Park, be that on foot, on skis, by bike, or covering plenty of ground with a tour in the car. Whatever your ideal break, choose The Coach House as your base.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £150.
