    Bearberry is a home from home and that is why we keep returning. The level of care, love and attention both the owners and caretaker give Bearberry is excellent. There is everything you need for a wonderful stay and the standard of furnishings and linen is superb. We are always sad to leave. It really is a beautiful place to relax in. Many thanks in letting us borrow the prefect holiday home.

    We have stayed in Bearberry Cottage several times now and keep returning because it is so good! The cottage is very well equipped and presented and maintained to a very high standard. The location provides good privacy and yet is very convenient for all local services and a range of walking options, some of which can be accessed direct from the cottage or within a short car drive. Absolutely lovely! We have already booked for next year!

    We know Ballater very well as a beautiful location in the Highlands, surrounded by stunning scenery, and with numerous eateries within walking distance of Bearberry Cottage. The Cottage is one of the best holiday cottages we have ever stayed in, spacious and very comfortable, and so well equipped. We would absolutely recommend Bearberry Cottage for the best Ballater experience.

    Bearberry is a delightful , spacious cottage, beautifully presented, spotlessly clean, very well equipped with everything you could need to make your stay a pleasant memorable one. Spoilt for choice with TV's in the lounge, two bedrooms and the kitchen diner!! You might not want to go out! Accomodation most suitable for people with mobility issues. Lovely tranquil rear garden with patio area. Great spot for birdwatching, also saw two squirrels! Quietly yet centrally located, short walk to town amenities. Great shops, eateries. Brilliant butchers for those who enjoy meat! Great base for enjoying the attractions of Royal Deeside. Lots of information available in house to advise on various outings and activities. Best cottage we have stayed in , highly recommend it and can't wait to return.

    This is the 4th year we have stayed at Bearberry. It is an excellent base for the things we like to do; mainly walking, golfing with sufficient local amenities. The accommodation is always presented in exceptional order and the provision of washing and drying machines are very helpful for extended stays. The drying room is useful for airing clothes after a days walk. We would have no hesitation in recommending this property as an ideal base for those looking for a range of outdoor activities.

    We picked "Bearberry Cottage" from a website, it was the first cottage I viewed and instantly thought this looks a fantastic. We booked it and on arrival felt instantly at "home" before we had even got into the property. Once inside - WOW - the property was immaculate, had every imaginable item you would require from a home. Its cosy, private, spacious , modern. Has a driveway that could probably house four cars. This holiday was with our friends from Germany and they were really pleased with the choice. I would definitely recommend this property to anyone who likes class from a holiday. You couldn't ask for anything more. There is so much to do in/around Ballater.

    We have just returned from our third visit to Bearberry and have already booked another week in 2020. The Cottage is always so welcoming and all of the fixtures and fittings are of an extremely high standard. We always relax immediately when we arrive, knowing that the house will be spotless and everything that is required for a self catering holiday has been provided for - and so much more! We had friends staying with us this year and they were so impressed with the quality of the house and it’s location. We had wonderful weather, which made our stay even more special and we really enjoyed the lovely garden. Bearberry is a 5* establishment which is an absolute credit to its owners and their housekeeper. We just can’t wait to return to our favourite holiday cottage next year!

    A very clean, comfortable and beautifully furnished cottage which we thoroughly enjoyed. The enclosed garden is a definite plus point. We enjoyed many walks from the front door and the village and shops being a short stroll away. The best holiday home we have stayed in so far. We enjoyed it so much we have already booked for next year.

    We have had many wonderful holidays at Bearberry. The reason we keep returning is the fact it is always perfectly maintained and so comfortable. Always spotlessly clean and welcoming, it has everything you could need for an enjoyable holiday. Perfect home from home.

    Bearberry Cottage is second to none. When you take the cottage over it is immaculate thanks to a wonderful cleaner. There is ample room for everyone, including a baby and a dog, and is ideally located for the town. All bedrooms are well furnished with very comfortable beds, and the living and dining areas are very well furnished too. The kitchen is well equipped with just about everything you need and plenty of plates, glasses, mugs etc. to allow you to use the dishwasher without running out of crockery! We are definitely returning and would highly recommend the cottage.
