    The presentation of the cottage on line and reviews on it all pointed to an impressive holiday home and it lived up to and exceeded our expectations. The collection of maps, annotated guide books and pamphlets ensured we had our very own tourist information at hand and provided inspiration for new routes in the area. It was lovely to sit at the back door and drink in the stillness. Equally lovely to sit by the log fire in the evening and gaze hypnotically at the flickering flames. The hard work by the owners and caretaker truly made Bearberry Cottage a home from home. Wi -fi signal excellent throughout our stay.

    Bearberry Cottage is super...very well equipped, extremely clean and neat. Spacious enough for our family of 5 with 3, nearly all adult, children but would also feel cosy for 2. Lots of books, walk books and maps, dvds and games. The house is situated in a very quiet road with a lovely view of pine woods out the back but only a short walk from Ballater centre with cafes, takeaways, bike hire, George Strachan for an amazing selection of whisky and a fantastic Co-op open from 7-late. There are lots of stunning walks and cycles within a short distance and many places to visit nearby. Sadly even 6 months after the devastating floods some shops and homes are still empty but great to see the huge recovery that has been made. We would definitely recommend the cottage and hope to book it again ourselves.

    We have been coming to Scotland for over 20years(self catering) this cottage is in the top 3, maybe even the best! The area looked fabulous after the snow, and the rivers were spectacular as the snow melted. Bearberry Cottage is a lovely, warm, welcoming place to come home to after a hard day exploring. We hope to retun.

    We had a wonderful week at the cottage with our one and two year old daughters. Everything you needed was provided for such in a well organised and spotless house. We had snow blizzards everyday which meant we stayed in a lot which was great. The wood burner was amazing. The girls loved the garden too. Thank you for a great stay. Hopefully we will be back.

    Great cottage very well equipped. We loved the log burner & luxury bathroom! Our boys enjoyed playing in the garden & we all enjoyed the birds. Beautiful part of the country, so many wonderful walks on your door step. So lovely to come home to such a comfortable cottage after a long day outdoors & great to sit down & watch a movie or play a game from the huge selection. Everything has been thought about, very comfy beds, blackout curtains, fluffy towels & spotlessly clean. Only downside it's so popular it's hard to find another available week! Would definitely like to return! Thank you.

    2nd visit to Bearberry and again we had a great week. Everything is perfect at Bearberry. Hope to rebook for next year. So happy to see Ballater is picking up after the recent floods. We ate out most days/nights to help boost their economy and adopted a local Tweedie Beastie from one of the town shops. Thank you for a lovely week

    This is a beautiful cottage and cleaned and equipped to a excellent standard. Despite allowing dogs to stay there is never any evidence of this and the furnishings and decor are first class. We have been several times before and intend to return several more. It is ideally situated in Ballater allowing access to the town and many walks by foot. Due to a collection of games, dvds and now wifi, even wet weather will not dampen your enjoyment of your holiday.

    Excellent cottage and location. Couldn't be faulted at all. We would certainly return and recommend! We loved the log burner, home comforts, wildlife in the garden, walking in all directions from the door step and the the 6 inches of snow that was delivered as we arrived! Wonderful! Thank you so much.

    The amenities at Bearberry Cottage are first class. The cottage is clean and tidy and finished to an excellent standard. We had Wi-Fi at the cottage which never let us down, there is a log fire which we used most days due to very bad weather, however this did not spoil our enjoyment of the cottage. The bed's are so comfy and with blackout curtains fitted and such a quiet area, we slept in on most day's. Ballater is a beautiful village and only a 10 minute walk from the cottage, as are wonderful walks in practically every direction. The garden is perfect for watching the birds and red squirrel visiting - bring nut's. Would not hesitate in recommending to everyone, in fact we have already booked another stay!
