    Excellent week again. Great location for mountain biking. Only a short walk to the village which has everything you can need. The house is equipped with everything you can want for a self catering and comfortable stay

    Our family of five (and dog) had a fantastic week staying at Bearberry Cottage. The house is very well equipped throughout, from kitchen equipment to a huge library of DVDs and books. The enclosed garden was perfect for our toddler and dog. The beds are extremely comfortable too! The location within Ballater is perfect with Craigendarroch Hill on the doorstep and just a few minutes walk to the village green and shops. Highly recommend!

    Fantastic cottage with everything you could need. Ideal location - peaceful and close to the amenities and walks. I’d stay here again and again and again...

    Beautiful cottage in a beautiful location. It was spotlessly clean, and is extremely well equipped with good quality furniture and fittings. Will definitely return!

    We stayed at Bearberry for the third successive year and have booked for next year. Although only 2 of us used this 3 bedroom cottage it was just what we needed. It is kept impeccably, it is in a location which allows walking over a wide area, it is close to several golf courses and the visitor amenities in Ballater are very good. We rate this as the best self catering cottage we have used and are happy to score this 10 out of 10.

    Bearberry Cottage is ideal as it is comfortable - Well equipped and spotlessly clean. Garden enjoys sun all daylong. Quiet situation. Well worth returning.

    We loved Bearberry Cottage. In 30 years of 'cottaging' in Scotland, Bearberry is right up with the very best we have experienced. We usually book remoter locations, but this very quiet residential setting proved peaceful yet within easy walking distance of all amenities. The walks straight from the door were delightful, perfect for our dog. The bungalow is freshly decorated, well furnished and the owners have upgraded the interior to a high standard. The central heating is very effective and the wood burner adds an extra option to cheer up winter evenings. I have marked the cottage down from 10/10 on only one category, value for money, because mid and high season prices are very high compared with other properties we use. However, the visitor book shows that this is no deterrent to others. Bearberry won't disappoint, that's for sure.

    We have just returned from our second, memorable visit to Bearberry Cottage. The house is so comfortable and spotlessly clean, with superior furnishings,fixtures and fittings. It is the best equipped holiday home that we have ever stayed in and we have booked numerous quality properties in Scotland and England over the years. The house is a five minute walk to the village and there is a good variety of coffee shops and restaurants in Ballater. We were very sorry to leave Bearberry Cottage this year and have already booked two weeks in 2019!

    Fantastic cottage, home from home, everything you need for a very comfortable stay . Love the wood burner heats up the room in no time. Will definitely return to Bearberry in the near future as one of the best cottages I have stayed in.
