“Ideal location to explore Aviemore and surrounding area”
Reviewed 4 weeks ago for a stay in June 2018

Great 'home from home' for anyone looking to take advantage of the outdoor activities in and around Aviemore/Cairngorms. The cottage itself is spacious, clean and welcoming in a quiet residential area around 10-20 minutes walk from the town centre. The owner Sandra is very helpful if you have questions and need help getting there and access to the property.

The conservatory with dining area/sofa & chairs at the back of the property allows you to enjoy the garden sheltered from the elemements while the steam train line running at the bottom of the garden is great fun for kids and big kids of all ages!

“Lovely Cottage!”
Reviewed August 7, 2017 for a stay in July 2017

Enjoyed our stay at Steam Cottage and the owner pays attention to detail as there was everything we needed for a self-catering break included, from the fast Wi-Fi to dishwashing tablets for the dishwasher! There was plenty of room for us all as the conservatory is an added bonus, and we enjoyed sitting in the large garden, looking out for the steam trains.
The cottage is about a mile from the centre of Aviemore in a peaceful and quiet location. We discovered a pleasant country walk rather than take the main road, so it was fine and handy.
Close by are a local chippy and a pizza takeaway (pizzas are fab) plus a supermarket for essentials – we ordered a home delivery shop from Asda (came all the way from Inverness) so we were well stocked up. Oh, and there is a local brewery just around the corner – we enjoyed a tour and also enjoyed sampling the beer.
I would thoroughly recommend the cottage to friends as it was excellent value for money and a beautiful, comfortable home to stay in for a holiday.

“Cosy, comfortable and clean”
Reviewed October 28, 2016 for a stay in October 2016

A good impression was made before we even arrived when the owner emailed a detailed and helpful information pack. We arrived to a spotlessly clean cottage and a very welcome tray with tea, coffee and biscuits and even some wine. The cottage is both comfortable and stylish with lots of little extras that make all the difference such as fluffy towels and a hair dryer. The owners have put a lot of thought into equipping the cottage and it lacked nothing we could have needed in our stay. We enjoyed watching the steam train and also the wildlife. I saw a group of five young deer close to the cottage. There is easy access to miles of walking including the Speyside Way. We left the car on the drive the whole week and either walked or used local buses. It is definitely a place you could come to by train and still manage to get around with ease. We had a problem with the some of the heaters and the owner was proactive in trying to resolve the issues and most apologetic. However other than some very cold nights we were warm and cosy and there is plenty of hot water and wood for the wood burner.

“clean well cared for cottage”
Reviewed September 13, 2014 for a stay in September 2014

We have just returned from Steam Cottage having had a enjoyable week in Aviemore. The cottage was clean and very well equipped with all you need. The log burning stove is easy to light and very warm and cosy. The tea coffee and milk which were waiting for us was very welcome after a long journey. Can recommend Steam Cottage.
