This cottage is a great place to stay. The cottage is very clean and Tony the owner made sure we had everything we needed. Tomintoul is ideal place to stay because you are with in each reach of unbelievable scenery and it is so quiet. We will be coming again because one week is nowhere near enough time to visit everything. The town has 2 pubs and restaurants and local shops.

Lovely cosy cottage in friendly village
We had a wonderful start of the year in the cottage. It is very cosy and complete. Furniture and fittings a bit outdated but everything worked well. Considering the price you pay you get a lot of comfort and facilities. There are thermostat controlled radiators in every room and there is a very nice multifuel stove, so we we're nice and warm even in the winter. Facilities very complete, including bedlinnen, towels, soap, cleaning products, wood and coal for the stove, kitchen towels, cling film, pepper & salt, and so on. Also a large fridge and freezer, a washing machine and dryer. All you need to bring yourselve is your toothbrush and shampoo. The cottage was very clean, allthough the extraction hood could benefit from some more attention. There is no wifi, but good 3G reception. The bed was allright but had a dimple in the middle and was therefore maybe at end of life we felt. Owner is living a few houses further down the road and very friendly and attentive. Some whisky and shortbread were offered for welcome, how nice is that! Tomintoul is a small but very charming village with a good pub at the Avon Hotel and a store village which sells the basic every day groceries. Very beautiful surroundings for touring, walking and of course there are some very nice whisky distilleries to visit. Nice villages to visit (and drive to) are Braemer, Ballatar and Aberlour. All in all we had a really good time and highly recommand this cottage. We certainly will be back!

This cottage was immaculately presented. You couldn't ask for any more. The village itself is beautiful. Great if you want to explore places such as balmoral, ballater, avimore or even further afield. The hotels etc do carry out meals for you. I would definitely recommend anyone who wants a base to explore or even just for relaxation.

Pat and I long with Poppy our sprocker spaniel have just spent the past week in BEECH YARD COTTAGE in Tomintoul Great location lovely cottage very comfortable bed with everything you needed. Tony the owner even left a large bottle of water on the door step on the morning the water was cut off for a few hour We will defiantly spend another week or two when we next visit If you're after a really peaceful place to stay then Tomintoul and BEECH YARD COTTAGE is the place to do it.

Excellent. A very well equipped and comfortable cottage. It was terrific value for money.
