    After several stays in Bearberry we continue to love the cottage and it’s location. It is perfect for us. It’s smart and comfortable and has everything you could need for a relaxing stay. The fact that it is the owner’s holiday home rather than just a rental is clear in that the cottage is always well maintained, clean and everything provided is of good quality. The only negative, we are not the only ones who love it and getting booked in is getting difficult due to people returning again and again! Thank you for the lovely times we’ve spent there so far.

    We had a very enjoyable week in Bearberry Cottage. The house is modern and immaculate and is the best equipped self catering property we have stayed in to date. It is only a short distance into Ballater and we enjoyed walking into the village for dinner at night. We have already booked another week's holiday at Bearberry, during 2018, and are looking forward to returning to this lovely, beautifully maintained home.

    This was an absolutely immaculate cottage, we could not have asked for any better. The whole cottage was so clean and had all the equipment you could ask for. The DVD and games selection was great and helped keep us entertained in the evening. Seeing the squirrels and birds in the back garden was fabulous. We have already booked to come back in 2018. Our boys (14 and 12) have said it was the best place they have ever stopped. It was made even better by the fact that it was Victoria week, which we didn't know when we booked. Amazing, really not sure what else I can say to make it sound even better :o)

    Felt at home in this beautiful cottage from the minute we entered. Had everything you could need for a week away. Lovely garden to sit in too after a day walking. So many lovely walks in the area.

    Second stay at this cottage and there will be a third. Spotlessly clean, quiet, private but good location for the mountains and attractions. Comfortable beds and great shower. Well equipped kitchen. Strong Wi-Fi. What more do you need?

    The accommodation, space and cleanliness of Bearberry is exceptional; a real home from home. It is simply the best of the many places we have stayed for this type of holiday. The quiet location in Ballater provided an ideal base for our walking and golfing activities (Ballater and nearby Banchory courses are exceptional courses at reasonable prices). Ballater is recovering from the flooding of 2015 and the village provides a wide range of eating places and grocery shopping to suit all needs. We are likely to book Bearberry for next year; what more can we say!

    After several wonderful holidays at Hyland's Cottage in Aviemore we decided it was time to visit the lovely owners other cottage in Ballater and we were not disappointed. Bearberry Cottage is simply stunning. Every comfort of home has been supplied. Everything you could possibly need for a relaxing holiday. Books, DVDs and games galore. Cozy wood burner for rainy days. Well equipped kitchen. Lovely walks from your front door too. I did not want to leave and as a result we've already booked to return to Bearberry next year. Look out for the Red Squirrels in the beautiful garden. Excellent base for exploring Aberdeenshire.

    Everything that has been said about this cottage previously regarding comfort, cleanliness, equipment and location - wonderful. The cottage is beautifully located within easy reach of Ballater and the surrounding area - loads to see and do - handy for local shops, pubs and takeaways. Furnishings and equipment were second to none and the garden was secluded which meant our dog was safe to lie out and watch the wonderful bird life that frequented the garden (I took a supply of Sunflower Hearts and feeder with me - but the owners had kindly provided one). This cottage is a must for everyone!!!
