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.

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.

Bright and airy space in a great location

  • 5 of 5

We have been here three times as a family and we love it. The surroundings are beautiful, we like Carrbridge, and there lots to do in the area of course. When we're not out and about, it is also lovely to spend time in and around the house.

Lovely warm home perfect for exploring

  • 5 of 5

We are just back from two weeks staying in this lovely cottage. We are two adults and three children aged seven, five and three and the cottage was just perfect for us. We grown ups took the downstairs bedroom as we are quite tall and the children slept in the two upstairs bedrooms. The open plan feel to the kitchen and living space was very airy and light with plenty of room for playing. The cottage was extremely warm and cosy and I can imagine in the winter with the log burner on and the underfloor heating I'd be quite happy to stay in!

The location was perfect for exploring the region. We got a season ticket for Landmark which we went back to nearly every day given it's a three minute walk through the woods. I would recommend going when the weather is rubbish as it's so much quieter. There are places to hide from the rain but if you're planning on going on the water slides you'll get wet anyway.

The woods behind the cottage have lovely walks and we spent a lot of time down on the river which can be reached from one of the many walks.

The cottage was extremely well equipped with lots of drying room for wet clothes and the big vestibule/boot room was perfect for wellies and outdoor gear.

We really enjoyed our stay and felt very much at home. Would definitely return. Thanks for having us!

Lovely convertion experience

  • 4 of 5

Our stay was all we expected it to be. The accommodation was very lovely. We even had snow! The cottage is situated just off the main road and in easy walking distance of local shops etc. We thoroughly enjoyed several visits to Landmark, especially the butterfly house, and the walks through the woods. The wood burning stove in the cottage was the icing on the cake for us and we enjoyed chopping sticks and getting in the logs. The underfloor heating was lovely when on, but we couldn't quite figure out how it worked. Eventually got the hang of the cooker as well - must have needed my holiday! Would recommend this place to others.
