By the time we reached Sanger House, we had walked all over London and Edinburgh with four young kids and we were ready to just relax. The Sanger House fit the bill perfectly. The pictures above are well done, but it's even better in person. The property itself is gorgeous, I could go on and on how beautiful it is. The house is perfect and immaculate. Our four kids(7-13) enjoyed running around outside, there is even a little hill in the backyard with paths!! There is so much greenery, you can't even see your neighbors! You would have to stand on the hill to see one house. When you walk in the house, there is a proper foyer with ample space for, keys, shoes and jackets. The living room is very comfortable and the sofas look new. The dining area easily seats six, but you could squeeze in eight for a cozy dinner:) the kitchen looks new. It's a fabulous kitchen to cook in. It's fully stocked with enough plates, silverware, glasses, even baking needs! They have both stainless pots and pans and non stick. The best part about the kitchen is the huge window over the sink. It made washing dishes on vacation absolutely pleasurable. The dishwasher is a Miele and now I want one just like it:) The three bedrooms are spacious and wonderful. The shower/bathtub is American style. There is a DVD blue ray player, books, toys for the kids, and a table top fooseball game. My kids had a blast!
On the way to the house we stopped at the House of Bruar for groceries. We were able to pick up meats and a few veggies, and surprisingly gluten free pasta and gluten free, dairy free cookies! We were able to get more food at the Tessco and the Co-operative grocery close by, they were much cheaper too. In fact, the Tessco had a section for gluten free, dairy free items! One day, we went for a hike in the park, it was so beautiful, I highly recommend it. My husband and kids walked down to the lake, that is very close, they even ate breakfast at the cafe.
We can't wait to go back and explore more of the highlands, but really, I slept so peacefully... I would go back just to get a refreshing sleep:) I really do hope we will be able to go back, my oldest is ready to pack up and move there:)
We had the opportunity to spend 3 nights at the Sangar. After spending a week in hotels in London and Edinburgh it was so nice to spend a few nights in a real home. You should have no reservations about booking Ron's place. First off the home is beautiful and very clean. It was like we were staying at a friends place. The property is amazing and feels very private. The home has everything you could want and my wife loved the kitchen. The view from the kitchen widow is pretty amazing. Everything worked perfectly and was amply supplied. A very good location with so much to do within a short drive or even walking distance. Thanks Ron. We very well might be back!
The sangar is a lovey place to stay, it is located in a quiet cul de sac, and offers fantastic views of the mountains. The garden is a peaceful and beautiful place to sit and relax, with the only noise being the birds. The sangar also has brilliant facilities that we enjoyed such as the fire.
Ron and Liz were a fantastic host and couldn't fault them in any way. They are lovely, kind and good hearted people. They provided alot of useful information regarding the area and places to visit, they also couldn't have been more attentive, if you have any questions they would reply promptly with an answer and you could ask them anything.
Enjoyed a great short break with the kids at The Sangar in the Cairngorms. The house was very homely and had all the facilities we needed. Ron was also a great host and provided lots of info to help us get the most out of the trip. Stunning scenery in the locality and fab walks out the back door. Close by lake side restaurant was a hit. Enjoyed day excursions to the Highland Wildlife Park and up the mountain on the tram. Lots of walking and cycling in the area too. Very enjoyable holiday.
Top notch accommodation in a secluded, picturesque location. Suitable for family as large enough to accommodate and close enough to all the fun stuff.
We had a perfect stay at the Sanger April 12-15. There were six of us with two kids ages 2 and 4. The house was in the most beautiful location and the blooming heather in the yard was such an inviting welcome. Everything in the house was perfect. The kitchen had everything we needed to cook breakfasts and dinners there. The dishwasher and washing machine seemed brand new! The beds were very comfortable and the electric blankets were a nice luxury! We loved the bathtub and the shower was wonderful! Ron was very very helpful with anything we needed on our vacation. He made sure we knew how to work the heat and checked in to see if we needed anything. He gave us a detailed route to walk and experience the most beautiful scenery. He was also very helpful with directions wherever we needed to go. He even put bird feeders right outside the dining room window. While eating breakfast we(especially the kids) had so much fun watching the birds and squirrels! We found a wonderful restaurant at the Boathouse on Loch Inch with a fun park for our kids to play. We could have spent a few weeks in the area there is so much to do. We did have a car but the public transport and cabs are very easy in this area too. One day family took the car for the day and we were able to ride the funicular railway easily using public transportation. If you are traveling to the area the Sanger is a perfect home base. We were thankful to feel at home while on vacation! Thank you Ron!
We had an amazing holiday at The Sangar the house is very spacious, immaculately clean and really everything we could have asked for, kitchen has every gadget you could want, three bedroom areas with extremely comfy beds .large living area with a open fire,safe garden for the children to play in and explore it was wonderful to see all the wildlife in the garden including squirrels.
