Mixed bag, some excellent features but tired.
We stayed in July 2021 as a family of 4. On the surface the cottage looks lovely. It was clean when we arrived and had everything we needed for our stay and a few things more, like a selection of DVDs, board games and the games room. There was plenty of space and the rooms had good storage. However, the cottage was let down by being a bit tired and in need of TLC. 2 out of the 3 double beds were uncomfortable/ too hard for us. Tiles were missing on the floor in the bathroom, the garden was messy/ dirty/ broken and the garden furniture had seen better days. The sofas were inadequate and past their best. The towels provided were adequate but tiny, hand towels not bath towels. The property sits behind a well used petrol station which really needs mentioning in the property overview as it was noisy and the fumes were quite over powering at times. It should also be noted that access to the property is also quite tight. Good to know if you're not keen on parking in tight spots!

Fantastic holiday house in a perfect location
This house is gorgeous - modern, beautifully decorated, very clean and with some lovely touches like books, DVDs and, of course, the traditional hot tub in the garden. I was lucky enough to stay here during the hot summer so we spent every night sitting in the (very private) tub with some bubbles watching the stars appearing. The house has been finished to a very high standard, with modern bathrooms and kitchen and very comfortable beds. The open plan lounge with wood burning stove gives the sense of loads of space but will be lovely and cosy in the winter too with the stove on. There is also a great second lounge with big TV and games ideal for children/teenagers as well as the garage with pool table etc. Grantown itself is a lovely wee bustling town with a main street with several good restaurants, pubs, butchers, bakers etc. It's also a great base to explore the surrounding area with Landmark Adventure Park just down the road and Aviemore and the Cairngorms just a short journey away. We discovered Andersons restaurant in Boat of Garten this year and its well worth the trip (tho book ahead!) This is a perfect house in a glorious area of Scotland and we will definitely be returning.
