“We booked the shack for an overnight stay after visiting Dinosaur Kingdom at Landmark Park for our little boys 2nd Birthday. We were greeted by Louise on arrival who was lovely and helpful! The shack was cosy, clean and exactly what we needed to rest our heads. We were also blown away by how thoughtful the hosts were by leaving our little boy a dinosaur themed birthday card and toy! Over and above. Thank you! Siobhan xo”
Cosy self-catering accommodation sleeps two. Situated between Aviemore and Grantown on Spey in the Cairngorms National Park close to the River Spey and surrounded by woods and farmland. Boat of Garten village is within a mile. Refurbished in 2018 to a high standard, Sycamore Cottage provides cosy accommodation for single people or couples looking for a relaxed break in idyllic surroundings, or for those who want to take advantage of the many opportunities for outdoor recreation. The cottage is in a secluded location with wonderful views overlooking the River Spey and Strathspey Steam Railway track with the Cairngorm mountains in the background. Well behaved dogs are welcome by arrangement.
“Home from home :) if you're a couple wanting to take in the sites of Aviemore whilst still keeping your home comforts then look no further! There was clear communication from Briony and Martin from the word go, even before we had booked the cottage. The cottage is down at the bottom of their garden, but don't let that put you off. They had fenced an area for our own private garden, bird feed and decking, plus the views overlook the river, not their house, so you feel like your in your own private location. Martin was there to greet us to ensure we were settled in and was to hand if we had any problems (which we didnt). The house was super clean and comfortable, but it was the small added extras that made it... - dog treats, bowls and towels (dog towels came in handy as we had so much rain ours were drenched!) - OS maps so we could plan our walks -fresh eggsfrom their chickens - wood for the fire (although the house was so warm we didnt need it) - a fully stock kitchen, we cooked ever night and wasn't short of any utensils. Was more than happy with the cottage and couldn't recommend enough. Thank you for a cosy cottage after our long days out.”
A very tastefully decorated apartment for couples. It is a delightful combination of old fashioned charm and modern functionality. Perfect for a short break at any time of year, the apartment is located in Boat of Garten, a village with a vibrant community an excellent restaurant and coffee shop and a pub 1 minute's walk away. Close to Aviemore, the outdoor capital of the UK.
“This flat was beautifully furnished with some lovely extra touches and a very comfy bed! Good facilities for cooking and 2 mins walk from the pub with great grub and drinks choices. Nice walk into Aviemore with easy local bus return. My friend enjoyed sampling a couple of the whiskies in the flat which is a great idea. It was handy to access more logs from the garden shed (for a little extra money) on a cold and snowy night. Iona was a great host and responded to enquiries promptly. Would definitely recommend. Magic!”
