About the property

A 3 bedroom house by river where pets are welcome just 6 miles from Aviemore

Ord cottage and the bothy are set in over half an acre of land, adjacent to the river at Feshiebridge. It is ideally located for exploring the Highlands as it is only 5km from the A9 but if you just want to relax it is surrounded by beautiful countryside and there is plenty to do locally. Glen Feshie is a quiet and lovely Highland glen with abundant wildlife, we see red squirrels, deer, osprey and lots of birds including crested tits. There is excellent mountain biking and walking; canoeing, dinghy sailing and windsurfing on Loch Insh, 1km from cottage and swimming in the river close to the house. Despite being in a quiet location it is only 10km from all the facilities of Aviemore.

Ord Cottage has 3 bedrooms (1 double, 2 twins) a large sitting room with open fire, a sofa bed and uninterrupted views of the river and glen, a large, very well equipped, newly refurbished kitchen/ dining room, a new bathroom and a shower room with a walk in shower.

Part of the garden is fenced and therefore is safe for small children.

The house is ideal for families and many have returned, approximately 70% of guests have stayed before. Our aim is to provide family and pet friendly accommodation at a reasonable budget.

The bothy is sometimes used by the owner and her family for the weekend, we will not intrude on your holiday as the cottage and it's garden are 2.5m above the bothy.

Mountain biking track runs past cottage and watersports are available on Loch Inch 1 miles away.

If you have stayed before please text me on 07590 465565 for returning guest's discount.

Excellent clean comfortable property, ideally suited for walkers and lovers of wildlife.

This is a lovely cottage surrounded by woodland and the River Feshie at the bottom of the front garden. The owner has thought of everything to give holidaymakers a good holiday. There is a cupboard full of puzzles, toys, games and books for bad weather days. For wildlife watchers there is a squirrel feeding station in the woods that can be seen from the kitchen and dining room windows and a bird feeder outside and food provided. We have many wonderful photos of red squirrels ,siskins, woodpeckers etc. It is a lovely picturesque part of Scotland with many small Lochs and Natures Reserves surrounded by mountains. It was our first visit to Scotland and we couldn't have wished for a better holiday.

Lovely spot for a long weekend break

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at Ord Cottage. The cottage had everything we needed for a cosy and relaxing stay, plus the surrounding area is stunning with loads to see and do. The swimming pools in the Feshie are great too, although I definitely needed the wetsuit at this time of year. Thanks for a wonderful trip!

We have stayed in a few houses around aviemore as prefer not to be in the town - this house is the best house so far.

There is loads of space inside for 6 people and a sofa bed for the 7th and 8th if required. It is fully equipped and everything worked (unlike other houses) and the log fire just added to the atmosphere and stay.

The owner was really welcoming and helpful also. A gem of a house if you want to be a short 10 min drive outside the noise of aviemore.
