The space
The cottage is next to the main house with secure parking ,set in the Cairngorms National Park next to the village of Bellabeg, which holds the famous Lonach Highland gathering and games that attracts over 7000 people a year. Just across the road is the river Don and the famous three hundred year old Jacobite Poldullie bridge built in 1715 the new Mary Queen of Scots has just filmed on the bridge, we had 172 extras and the props crew just out side the cottage and the hot tub ready for the stunt men. Just 8 miles up the road is the Lecht Ski resort with stunning views. Sweetheart Cottage is the ideal location for sightseeing, walking , skiing, exploring and birdwatching or just to chill out and relax. If you are celebrating a special occasion please let us know, we can attempt to accommodate all requests.
❤️We are now offering afternoon tea from for Cakes sake and what a treat it is to book you must pre order, prices are £40 per couple and £50 per couple with a bottle of bubbly. ❤️Please note our cleaning fee is £90 for a deep clean using steam cleaner and cleaning products recommend by the World Health Organisation and the Self Catering association and to cover the cleaning and refilling and heating of the hot tub during your stay and to keep any additional days booked after the minimum of 2 nights at a flat rate of £100.

Please note check in is from 4 pm and check out is no later than 10 am this has been recommended by government guid lines so the cottage has time for a deep clean before the next guest arrive.

We insist you keep your pets off the bed and furniture hairs and paw prints on bedding and sheets will be charged at a £30 cleaning fee along with any guest towels used for anything apart from drying your selfs. Please be respectful as we do not charge extra for pets and would like to keep it that way. Due to COVID-19 we ask you bring your own dog bed with you. Dog bowls will be supplied.
