Description

This is the playground of Scotland, with so many outdoor activities to choose from, you will wish you were on holiday for a fortnight, not just a week.

Built in the early 1900s, this Edwardian large holiday home offers highland accommodation for up to 11 guests, (6 adults and 5-6 children) in 5 comfortable bedrooms. The kitchen houses a traditional Aga, as well as an electric hob, and the large sitting room with open fire, has Sky TV. The property also benefits from having a games room, with a smart TV, DVD and Video Player, and a selection of games including a table football table. The bedrooms, all arranged on the first floor, are well presented. The nursery bedroom offers a child’s bed, and space for a cot if appropriate.

There is parking for 3 or 4 cars. Surrounded by silver birch and pine trees and with a southerly aspect, it enjoys the sun at the front of the house throughout the year. By walking from the house, there is good access to the glen above, which is ideal for good walks. This is a house which should be perfect for family holidays, activity based groups or golfers.

The house was lovely. Very comfortable, spacious and well equipped.
The housekeeper was very kind, helpful and efficient when we had to contact her when one of our party managed to go home with the house keys!

Fantastic that you had a lovely stay and rated the house and it's facilities excellent. Perfect to hear the housekeeper was helpful and that the keys were returned safely - accidents happen :)

We look forward to hearing from you again in the future.

Mainly efficient, friendly and prompt. But. Had difficulty getting a reply when phoning one Saturday. The phone rang out, with no reply, when I phoned (several times) in the late morning/ early afternoon. Then later on, after about 4pm, when I phoned it went on to the answerphone, saying closed now.

Thank you for taking the time to leave a review. Sorry for the misunderstanding on the Saturday,  we have recently changed our office opening hours  and it sounds as though you may have got caught up in mix whilst the new answerphone system was being set up.

This is all up and running now so hopefully there will be no misunderstanding in the future. It was good to catch up with you on Monday morning and hear you had a lovely stay and may wish to re book.

Second visit to this property which is large with some excellent features (Aga and Sonos) which is in a good position for exploring the local area. Would have scored excellent if the standard of house keeping had been higher.

Thank you, great to hear you enjoyed your second stay in this lovely holiday house. There are lots of lovely extras and I’m sure the games and music system kept all the generations of the family happy!

Easy to book and quick with responses to queries.

Thanks for your great feedback!

House was lovely and in a very quaint village. The house had everything we needed and was set out well. The sonos system was a big hit with everyone.

Thanks for your lovely feedback and it’s great to hear your family enjoyed the holiday in this beautiful villa. We look forward to helping again and don’t forget we also offer a loyalty discount scheme for returning guests!

Very good service. Dealt with a girl called Amy and she was always quick to respond to any queries that I had regarding my booking. Received plenty of updates from the time of booking regarding our stay.

Excellent sized property in a great location with easy access to Glens and village. Let down by a lack of attention to basic presentation, decor /maintenance. We appreciate it is peak season however a six hour change over time should allow for a much higher standard of presentation than is currently being offered to guests. Sonos was brilliant.

Thank you for your comments about this excellent sized Edwardian villa in a great location. Please be assured that your comments are taken on board to improve the service and these are passed on accordingly. I am glad to hear that the SONOS was popular and should you wish to re book, please get in touch and we will be delighted to help.

Slight problem with the bath the overflow is broken and no cautionary note resulting in water everywhere. I would suspect the Aga needs a service. The roasting oven wasn't hot enough (much cooler than mine at home) overall a lovely property with good facilities.

Thank you for your comments which have been passed onto the owner to investigate further.

Glad to hear you had a nice time overall and please don't hesitate to get back in touch with us in the future.
