    Lovely cottage which coped well with 2 families. Will definitely stay again as it is a wonderful base for the Cairngorms walking and wildlife opportunities-highly tecommended

    A cosy and warm cottage for a winter weekend away. Everything you need supplied except towels and toilet paper.

    Boiler was dodgy which caretaker knew about but didn't tell us, upstairs toilet was broke and flooded bathroom floor that I myself had to fix caretaker said it's fine, had to make beds and not 100% sure they were clean sheets so used own that I had taken. House is in need of a good makeover cleaned and decorated but it was somewhere to put it head down and out again first thing in morning

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the owner; There is nothing dodgy about the boiler, it is on a full service agreement and any issues with it would be put right. We only ask that customers do not fiddle with the controls but leave them as they are set. If extra heating is required at any time there is a manual advance button on the boiler and the thermostat can be easily turned up or down. There had been a minor leak in the bathroom which a local plumber had resolved earlier but he did have to go back a second time to replace a part in the cistern which he had overlooked which caused the second leak. The laundry is washed after every holiday changeover by the caretaker/cleaner who lives in the house opposite the cottage. If there are any issues please speak to her in the first instance.

    The map on booking is not accurate. It was necessary to ask the neighbors for help because the telephone numbers provided didn't work. Cleanliness could be better and basic things like soap for washing hands were lacking.

    Needs a good clean. The last time we stayed there were condiments spare loo roll hand soap etc with an unspoken rule of if you finished it replace it.

    We were a party of 4 walking buddies (male age 50+). There were no directions to the cottage provided and due to some dodgy navigation (our fault entirely) some of our party spent a long time hunting in the wrong village. The cottage is actually quite easy to find however on the main street of the village of Boat of Garten opposite the green and about 75 yard from the holiday park/ shop. We had some difficulty contacting the owners to arrange to pick up keys but eventually it was sorted. We never yet met anyone though as the key was simply left for us to collect. The cottage is an old building and has mostly everything you would need. The furnishings are in keeping with the type of building so don't expect modern. We found them perfectly adequate and comfortable and the place was clean enough {we are a party of 4 blokes so no serious inspections were carried out ;-) } There is plenty of space and 4 bedrooms (1 double, 2 twin and 1 with bunks). Lounge, kitchen (not a huge kitchen but fine) and dining room. One upstairs bathroom (toilet, bath and shower cubicle) and one downstairs toilet. Additional washing areas would have been a bonus and larger parties may need to consider this. No towels were provided so pack your own. Garden with patio and a small shed with a barbecue are all available. Off road parking in the drive for a couple of cars and on street parking outside shouldn't be an issue. The cottage is well situated and met our needs but some small improvements (better communication, extra shower room and providing towels) would make quite a difference). That said we felt it was decent value for our group and served us well and we would be happy enough to return. Not a patch on Silverglades in Aviemore though so it wouldn't be our first choice.
