Steam Cottage is a single-storey, semi-detached cottage, one mile from Aviemore.

The cottage also has a kitchen, sitting room with woodburning stove and a conservatory with dining area and comfy seating. Outside there is off road parking for two cars, a front lawned garden and an enclosed rear lawned garden with furniture. Steam Cottage is an excellent base for a couple of family who wish to partake in the many outdoor activities in the area.


Cosy, comfortable and clean
A good impression was made before we even arrived when the owner emailed a detailed and helpful information pack. We arrived to a spotlessly clean cottage and a very welcome tray with tea, coffee and biscuits and even some wine. The cottage is both comfortable and stylish with lots of little extras that make all the difference such as fluffy towels and a hair dryer. The owners have put a lot of thought into equipping the cottage and it lacked nothing we could have needed in our stay. We enjoyed watching the steam train and also the wildlife. I saw a group of five young deer close to the cottage. There is easy access to miles of walking including the Speyside Way. We left the car on the drive the whole week and either walked or used local buses. It is definitely a place you could come to by train and still manage to get around with ease. We had a problem with the some of the heaters and the owner was proactive in trying to resolve the issues and most apologetic. However other than some very cold nights we were warm and cosy and there is plenty of hot water and wood for the wood burner.

A great cottage in a good location.

Fantastic holiday rental in a great location. The property was very clean and had everything we needed and more. The fire was lovely in the evening and it had very comfortable beds. Will definitely book this again.
