Morrone Cottage

  • 4 of 5

The Cottage is delightful and Braemar is a quiet village with an excellent restaurant (The Braemar Lodge). The Cottage was clean, the wood burning stove worked well and the WiFi was good. The Cottage sits in a pleasant garden and wass very quiet situated near the end of road.

We were surprised to have to pay for the cottage electricity, it is not covered by the rent but it was a reasonable cost. The Cottage has a mezzanine floor with a low roof which didn't suit my 6'2" height, (Banged head), The patio wouldn't lock so we kept valuables in our vehicle, although Braemar appears to be crime free.

There is a Coop for food and the fish and chip shop freshly cooks your order.

The 'HomeAway' adverts can be confusing. Pictures of Morrone House are used to illustrate Morrone Cottage as well (See picture attached to this review).

A very enjoyable break.

A perfect holiday home!

  • 5 of 5

This is lovely house and I would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a peaceful escape in the Cairngorms. The house is spacious and comfortable: our family of four shared it with a couple of friends with more space to spare. It was spotless and well equipped. The garden is beautiful and HUGE, much to our boys' delight who could play football all day long. The location is also great, a short walk to the village and only few steps away from the stunning views of the Cairngorms and the river Dee. I look forward to our next stay!

Hält nicht, was es verspricht

  • 2 of 5

Die Kommunikation mit der Verwalterin zuvor war freundlich und hilfreich. Die Übergabe war denkbar unkompliziert, die Tür stand offen, der Schlüssel hing im Flur. Das Cottage liegt am Rande des Dorfes in einem großen Garten. Leider entsprach die weitere Wirklichkeit nicht der Beschreibung. Von Luxus konnte keine Rede sein, die Einrichtung ist schlicht und zweckmäßig. Die Sauberkeit ließ zu wünschen übrig. WLAN funktionierte nur an der Verbindungstür zum Haupthaus, selbst unsere Nachfrage erbrachte keine Abhilfe. Auf Einzelbetten waren wir eingestellt, nicht aber auf ein Durchgangszimmer als Schlafzimmer, was in der Beschreibung nirgendwo beschrieben war. Auch dass wir für Strom und Gas extra bezahlen sollten, war weder in der Beschreibung noch in der Kommunikation zuvor erwähnt worden. Für ein Familie mit 2 kleineren Kindern ggf. geeignet, wir würden sie unseren Freunden nicht weiterempfehlen.

Owner's Response: When you were there, a few devices found the signal weak. We have therefore upgraded and the Wi-Fi signal is now specific to the cottage and is excellent (5 bars). We installed a German Devolo fast router that modulates the signal and sends it along the 240V mains cable to its own separate Wi-Fi sub-router in the cottage where it gives out its own Wi-Fi signal. So there is a very strong signal there! We stayed there ourselves recently and my husband had several international business Skype video calls to make and so I know it's very good. Since last year we have also put in a new cooker, new settee, new carpet upstairs and new wood-burning stove.

Braemar. In a wonderful,quiet spacious location within easy walking distance of the centre of the village of Braemar in the Cairngorms National Park. Near Balmoral castle, Braemar has a wonderful golf course in the mountains and is close to Mar Lodge and the beautiful river Quoich. Our large garden looks south and west over Morrone, and the back garden has a private gate going directly out on to the heather moorland with spectacular views of the Cairngorms.The Royal Braemar Highland Gathering is held 500m away each year in September.
