Description

With an activity centre, the river Spey and a number of golf courses nearby, this holiday home is so near to a host of activities you will need more than a weeks break

Within the Cairngorm national park in amongst the Scots Pines and close to the river Spey can be found this traditional stone-clad house. Set within its own 2.5 acres of grounds, this is a house that started life back in 1793, which has been added to over the years making it a large holiday house today, perfect for a group of activity minded friends or for a family holiday.

With plenty of space inside as well, with a sitting room, dining room, TV room and a games room with a pool table, allowing for plenty of space for the group to spread out. The kitchen also has a breakfast room for more casual suppers or staggered breakfasts. The seven bedrooms are all on the two floors above and include double rooms, twin rooms and a single bedroom. This is a great base for a holiday in the Aviemore and Strathspey area which has proved popular for many years for so many people.

  • In the traditional manor the sitting room is to be found at the front of the house, which has an open fire, comfortable seating and a TV, with DVD and SKY. Beyond the entrance hall, there is a smaller secondary sitting room, which is ideal for children, which has a TV and DVD player.

    To the side of the building, off the kitchen, is a sun room where boots can be stored and dogs kept. Located on the first floor are two further rooms for entertainment purposes. There is a room with a pool table (with 2 fold-out beds available) and another smaller room with a ¾ size table tennis table.

    Kitchen & Dining  
    The dining room is located off the entrance hall opposite the sitting room and is a bright room to the front of the house with a bay window, seating up to 12 people in comfort and style. To the rear of the house is the large kitchen and with a professional range-master cooker and two fridge freezers, it is set-up nicely to cater for larger groups. There is space for a breakfast table which can seat 6/8 people. Additionally there is a utility room off the kitchen, with a washing machine and tumble dryer. A side door from the sun room allows easy access to the kitchen, without having to traipse through the rest of the house.

Mainly set out in grass, with a combination of lawn and meadow, surrounded by woodlands. A BBQ and garden furniture are available in the summer months.  You'll see lots of wildlife around depending on the time of year you visit from Roe deer to highlands cows and pine martin, as well as all sorts of birds including geese on the pond 100 metres from the house. 

    Located in a country setting a short distance from the river Spey and the bustling town of Grantown-upon-Spey and only 15 miles from Aviemore.  The Creggan activity centre is a few miles away, with the Landmark Forest Adventure Park located at Carrbridge. Golf courses in the area include Grantown, Nethy Bridge and Boat of Garten. 

    Fishing on the Spey for salmon is a popular pastime. The Cairngorms and many walks including The Speyside Way are in the vicinity. Ospreys can be seen in the summer at the RSPB hide locally. The Castle and Whisky Trials are in the area. This is a great area for families and an activity based holiday.

House was everything we wanted, young adults enjoyed games rooms and older adults could enjoy the very spacious living room and dining rooms. Will be booking again. Met the owner who was very helpful. The housekeeper was always at the end of the phone. Great for big groups of mixed ages.

Excellent service, staff replied to my emails with queries very quickly.

Early arrival was arranged through housekeeper as was late departure which was really helpful. First class, house was warm when we arrived clean and tidy, big kitchen,seating for everybody, party of 14. Loads of games to keep the kids busy, nice dog walk round back of house. Bedrooms were comfy as was lounge with a big roaring fire, bought some peat from local garage. Aviemore village only 20 minutes away. Lovely weekend away will use this house again.

Sounds like you had a great time at the house, looking forward to helping with your future holiday plans.

Excellent value for money, simple easy transaction

Thanks so much.

The house was a perfect location for our holiday and provided ample room for all the guests we had during our stay there. The house is well equipped, but remains quirky, and the pool room was well used. The weekly cleaning service was excellent. A great centre for exploring Speyside and the Cairngorms, with lots of opportunities for great walks straight out the door.

Really pleased to hear you enjoyed your time here, it is a great spot for exploring the Central Highlands!

Very happy with the whole experience provided by Scotts Castle Holidays, through from my initial enquiry to the prompt return of our cleaning deposit.

Glad to hear you were happy with the whole experience and hopefully we'll be able to help you again sometime.
