Lovely house in an ideal location
We booked this property for our Christmas family get together. We were a group of 8 adults, 3 small children and 2 dogs. We all thought the property was perfect. Large and roomy enough so that everyone could have space when needed. Plenty of seating in the kitchen and cosy lounge for everyone to sit for meals and relaxing. The 4 bathrooms were ideal too. The house was nice and warm too.
The house was presented to a very high standard and was thoroughly refurbished. The owners were very helpful from the moment we first enquired and made us feel very welcome. They gave advice on local shops and facilities.
Newtonmore was a great place to stay. A friendly little village with good local coop, places to eat and drink and good local walks from the doorstep. Easy to get to places such as Inverness, Aviemore, Loch Ness and the Cairngorms. Some of the activities that various members of our group enjoyed included sledging at Tomintoul, taking the Funincular railway to the top of Cairngorm, round of golf on the Newtonmore golf course, visit to see the Polar Bears and other animals at the nearby Wildlife Park, ice skating at Inverness, meal and drinks at the Balavil Hotel, Ceilidh band in the Braeriach Hotel and a walk along the river from Loch Morlich to the top of Cairngorm.. Didn’t manage the Dalwhinnie distillery-but have that planned for our next trip!
All in all I would thouroughly recommend this property and location.
Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your review it was very helpful to read your comments as this is a new venture for us and we were not completely sure we were getting it right.
We also love visiting other new places within the UK and Europe so when thinking about what we wanted to acheive we thought of our own experiences and tried to create a holiday home that we would want to return to.
We are so glad you enjoyed your stay and hope to see you again.
Thank you again.
