Live like a local! A wonderful old family home within the Cairngorm National Park this is the perfect spot for peace in nature, fishing, Castles & Whisky, hill-walking, local festivities/history (Forbes in particular) and a really good night's sleep. Enjoy the house itself or the 12 acres of mostly woodlands at our doorstep. Climb to the top of Ben Newe (right out the back door!) Within half an hour of several golf courses and 20 minutes from the Lecht Ski Centre. Enjoy a Newe Experience!
“Kym is a wonderful hostess and we loved meeting her and Jonny, we were late on arriving the first night and were immediately and generously offered a home cooked meal after a very long journey! This is a historical house which sits within lush grounds and dates from 1604, it belonged to Jonny's ancestors and they both take a great delight in sharing its rich and interesting history if you are curious. Our room was cosy and comfortable with lovely fabrics and textiles and we have no hesitation in recommending this place. Great location for hiking too...”
Cosy, comfortable cottage in a beautiful, peaceful location in the Cairngorms National Park, in the heart of Royal Deeside. Surrounded by mountains, rivers and lochs with birds and wildlife in the garden. It's just 10 minutes drive from Aboyne and Ballater, close to the ski resorts of Glenshee and the Lecht, a few minutes from the Gliding Club with many golf courses and castles to visit. Ideal for walking, cycling and relaxing.
“Perfect location to explore the East of the Cairngorms, although if you don't mind driving the West side is only an hour and a half away. The view from the cottage is beautiful, there was still snow on the peak, and watching the rabbits in the next door field was a delight. We didn't meet Julie but communication via email was good and as everything was as described there were no problems. For me a comfortable bed is a must and happily the bed at the cottage is great. I highly recommend this place.”
COVID UPDATE. The Housie will be unoccupied a day before and a day after each booking to allow for adequate cleaning to ensure The Safety of its Residents. I would also ask that if people are in doubt about their health, they adhere to Scottish Government Guide lines and do not travel. Cancellations will be accepted for this. Everyones Health and wellbeing is paramount.
“What a cosy and quiet house to call home for a few days ! Both Laura and Charlie are very welcoming hosts. The housie was very clean, well equipped and heating was able to come on at a touch of a button ! Very impressed with all aspects of the housie, including the well stocked kitchen and bathroom. Excellent location within the Cairngorms, only a hour to Aberdeen and an hour north to the coast. There is no TV, only radio - so definitely a great place to get away from it all. Would definitely recommend !”
