We enjoyed our stay in Nethybridge and the cottage was nice and very comfortable felt a little like being at home, we always have a lovely time and always find new places to visit and great places to eat, we come to Scotland twice a year summer, christmass and new year.

So well done to Karen and Alan for making our holiday special.

Fantastic warm and comfortable cottage

  • 5 of 5

We stayed just before Easter and had a fantastic week, the location is ideal with loads of walking and cycling straight from the cottage. We visited the quality butcher in the village and the local shop is well stocked. The full cottage is well equipped with an excellent kitchen and the open fire provided good warmth on the chiller nights.

wonderful property, a home away from home. They have thought of everything even sellotape.

  • 5 of 5

We had such lovely weather. We went to the Osprey Centre at Loch Garten it is wheelchair friendly so able to take the Mother in law, we love the peace and tranquility and beauty of this Loch and had a walk. Also went to Aviemore, Lossiemouth, Buckie and Loch Ness and Ballater. And the main reason for our trip, to Tomintoul to see our relations and go to our Great Nephews' Christening. The accommadtion was wonderful, lovely décor, very comfortable. We saw lots of different birds in the garden which we fed with seed an fat balls.Mother in Law and our Daughter thoroughly enjoyed there stay as did my wife and myself. What a shame my sons were unable to come after all as they have been invited to Switzerland with their Boss. They missed a great time,some other time perhaps. Anyway can't thank you enough for the use of your lovely cottage. Les Watts and family.

Just perfect!

  • 4 of 5

Had a wonderful 6 night Christmas stay at Hawthorn while visiting family nearby. The Cottage certainly lived up to our expectations and more, with high standards throughout. Cottage was lovely and warm, beds comfortable and has a bright spacious kitchen/diner. Communication before and during our visit was excellent . Great location for all the activities nearby. Great local Spar and fantastic butcher shop. Would definitely return to Hawthorn.

We had a lovely stay at your home it was very well equipped and cosy.

  • 5 of 5

The property was lovely from the outset, where it was in Nethybridge and how well it was layed out and what a great finish all the fittings and furniture was. My youngest daughter loved the reindeer room (this is what she called it as she is mad on reindeer) and wants to know where you got the curtains and cushions from and my older daughter who is 15 wants her room like your double room (the one that is next to the bathroom) thank you for letting us stay in your wonderful property.

Many thanks
