    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!!!

    Our 2nd visit here and we've already booked the 3rd. Fabulous cottage with everything needed for a brilliant holiday. Including all logs for the burner. The surrounding area is great for walking wildlife and sightseeing. The owners and caretaker are very attentive and really want guests to enjoy the time there. We couldn't recommend it highly enough. What are you waiting for just book it... unless it's for the same time as us!

    Our second stay at Bearberry cottage and another fabulous visit. We celebrated in style and had a glass of champagne to welcome in the New Year! This cottage is immaculate and is a real quality property with everything you could wish for in a holiday home. The beautiful village of Ballater is a short walk away. The villages of Banchory, Aboyne, and Braemar are all within an easy drive away and are well worth a visit. The walks from the cottage are numerous and all stunning. Bring with you bird feed and nuts for the gardens visiting red squirrels and birds. You will not be disappointed in choosing to book Bearberry cottage, we have already booked our third visit. Thank you
