    The cosy Cottage gave us a good Base for our Holiday. In the first rainy week we had nice evenings on the Fire Place. In the second sunny week it gave a good spot to start our tours accross the country. We`ll definitely come back. Even if we have to get VISA cause of the Brexit.

    A beautiful cottage but in serious need of updating, upon arrival the caretaker came over and she was very nice but we told her that there was only a few light bulbs which she told us had been taken by previous renters :-O she didn't replace the missing ones, the front room is extremely cold even with the heating on and lighting the fire, the small window in the front room needs replacing as when it is windy you can hear the noise coming through the window and it howls, the tv is small and the sofas are passed their best, you sit down and sink to the floor and have real trouble getting up also when we moved the cushions there was so much debris we could tell that it hadn't been hoovered for a while, the only comfortable seat is the arm chair which is hard when there is 4+ of you. The dining room is the only room in the house that is warm and able to accomodate comfort. The kitchen is ok even though the pots and pans have seen better days and there was food left in the freezer!!!! the washing machine and tumble dryer are a nice touch but we had to use pegs to keep the hose for the tumble dryer attached as it was badly broken. The bathroom upstairs was fine apart from the razor point didn't work. The bedrooms were very uncomfortable and the bedding really leaves a lot to be desired, the quilts are like something from the 80's, the upstairs bedroom with the double bed was extremely uncomfortable and you could feel springs digging in your hips, the 2 single beds in the other upstairs bedroom were very uncomfortable and the pillows were flat. we own a property in the USA and rent it out to people on holiday, we have agents out there who take care of it for us and they supply cleaners who clean etc, also we supply towels and bedding which on a regular basis are replaced/updated and anyproblem large or small the agents sort out even replacing light bulbs, I don't know if the owners are aware of the problems at Granite cottage and hope they read this and take it as constructive critisism. This is a beautiful cottage in a lovely locations but really needs updating.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the Owner; We leave a stock of light bulbs in the cupboard under the stairs but it looks as though they have either been taken or used. Obviously the light bulbs should all work and everything should always be clean and tidy and left over food removed and I will take that up with our caretaker. The lounge is the last of all the rooms to warm up but this is a 100 year old cottage with solid granite walls and that is always going to be the case. Other than that the cottage is very warm with the heating on. The flat screen TV is 32” which is probably about right for the size of room, although maybe too small for some. The windows are all replacement double glazed UPVC windows so unless one has been damaged it should not be drafty – unless it was wind howling down the chimney? The shaver point works OK but it only turns on with the bathroom light. We will take a look at the pots and pans and other bedding / seating, etc. and see what needs replacement or repair, although most of the duvets and pillows are replaced about every 24 months. We stay at the cottage ourselves for a week every few months and can only guess that some of these things have deteriorated or been damaged since we were last there. Thank you for raising these points and they will all be looked at very shortly.

    Granite Cottage was homely and comfortable accommodation for a large group. Quite a few lamps needed bulbs. Loo roll and bin liners would be useful. Overall it was great, highly recommended.

    lovely quiet village, cosy and comfortable cottage, loved the two open fires, short break but would happily have stayed longer. handy store just across the road I have marked down the 'comfort and equipment' category as the oven and dishwasher need replacing since neither worked satisfactorily

    Our 2nd visit to the cottage. Love Boat of Garten and the woodlands behind the cottage makes it excellent for our dog and grandchildren.

    Great cottage for a large group, plenty of space. It was comfortable, homely, plenty equipment. The only slight negatives were that the oven didn't work very well and the bedroom near the kitchen was chilly.

    We had a really good family holiday here; house well equipped and spacious. Excellent location, good walks locally through forests and to nearby lochs, many more a short drive away; well stocked local shops, Aviemore about 7 miles away on fast roads. Strathspey Railway close by. Great place to relax, countryside spectacular.
