About the property

Cottage in Carrbridge, Aviemore, Scottish Highlands, Scotland - Small Walk To Landmark Forest Park, Picturesque Carr Bridge And Local Shops

At one time the building was the Free Church of Scotland and retains much of that character. Recently renovated to a high standard it now offers a "home away from home"; everything you need for comfort is provided, from luxury bedlinen, scented candles and fluffy towels. The property is five minutes walk from the local shop, yet retains a feeling of being away from it all as it is located up a private lane that provides no through road. All appliances are less than three years old and a modern under floor heating system and wood burning stove provide comfort at all times of year. The living space is open plan to the kitchen and is a double height space, with a gallery to the upstairs, letting in loads of natural light. The bathrooms are modern, with both bath and shower available. Outside the property is not overlooked. There is a lovely patio with sun chairs and wooden fixed picnic table, in a wee sun trap. Parking is easy and there is plenty of space for four cars or more. Set in mature pine forest, yet south facing to the patio doors at the rear you could not pick a better location for a family holiday.

Beautiful warm comfortable and well equipped cottage

  • 5 of 5

Family had a fabulous time. The dogs loved exploring the forest. Carrbridge is a lovely quiet village and close enough to Aviemore for supplies.

We would highly recommend this property and location for a relaxing break.

We enjoyed this 'home from home' accommodation and will definitely be back. Our grand daughter loved the fact that it was within walking distance to Landmark activety park.

Family summer holiday

  • 5 of 5

House is a real home away from home. Everything is provided you need for a relaxed stay. Location is stunning. Off the main road(s) but either way easy accessible. Whether Aviemore and its activity Estate Rothiemurchus or the Black Isle; Cromarty Firth; Speyside and its Whisky(s) just a few mls east or Inverness for an extended shopping; as well as beach life i.e in Nairn. All is reachable and you really enjoy coming back to the cottage, or even staying in for a lazy day. Thanks for great holidays!

Lovely, comfortable stay, great location. everything you need.

  • 5 of 5

Really enjoyed out stay. We brought out elderly disabled parents and the bedroom and shower room in the ground floor was ideal for them both. The accommodation was clean tidy and well equipped. The location was quiet and peaceful. 2 beautiful horses to look out on in the morning and a stones throw away from a walk in the woods. Fully recommended

Further Details:

Landmark Forest Park is close to the property and is a fantastic experience for adults and children alike. You can walk through the forest to the park in about 5 minutes. Even with a toddler it is walkable and this avoids the biz of the car park at high season. It also means you can buy a season pass and visit first thing and last thing for a short while each day. The property is also well situated for many Carrbridge forest walks. You can mountain bike from the front door.
