“Exceptional Holiday Home for large groups”
Reviewed June 3, 2012 for a stay in May 2012

We chose "The Pines " to get the family all together to celebrate our son's 21st Birthday.Lucy and Jay could not have been more helpful from the booking process, unpacking our huge Tesco shop,providing an immaculate house with every possible utility ( yes the dishwasher is amazing !) . Nothing was too much trouble, firelighters for the cold first days to barbecue charcoal for the rest of the week which was hot and sunny. Every room is special but the kitchen/family room really pulls the group together and the red dining room a great place to breakfast together. We know the area really well, but some of our guests had never been to the Highlands and loved the contrast of Saturday up in the Cairngorms standing on snow to Monday on Loch Morlich sitting on the beach in glorious sunshine. Fifteen of us had Sunday lunch on the Strathspey Railway , which is a 2 hour round trip. They even provided a birthday cake for our son which completed a fabulous meal-highly recommended.A brilliant holiday based in a brilliant house looked after by the lovely Bostock Family , thank you.

“Anniversary Surprise Weekend”
Reviewed May 8, 2012 for a stay in April 2012

We stayed at the Pines House at the end of April. We arranged a surprise 25th Anniversary get together for friends. Family and friends came from Dublin, London, Aberdeen and Dunfermline.

The house is simply amazing! Anything and everything you could possibly want in self-catering accommodation is there. The bedrooms and en suite bathrooms are fabulous and the communal areas are much more than expected. The Drawing Room on the first floor level is a beauthiful room and very relaxing.

Lucy and Jay provide their guests with as much privacy as they want and are also available if any questions arise. All in all a terrific weekend was had by all our party and we were also lucky to get fantastic weather during our stay. The garden and surrounding woods are so lovely and a must for anyone visiting the Pines House. All in all I cannot recommend the Pines House highly enough and will look forward to another opportunity to visit.

“Annual Family Gathering”
Reviewed April 12, 2012 for a stay in March 2012
1
person found this review helpful

18 of us - ranging in age from 9 months up to 71 years - stayed at The Pines this year for our seventh annual family get-together: and I can say without doubt that this is by far the best house we've had so far. Jay and Lucy were fantastic, very friendly and welcoming. The kitchen is well-equipped - we have a lot in the party who like to cook - and also provides an attached sitting area where spectators can sit and chat to keep the cooks company. That gave the whole place a real family atmosphere. All the bedrooms were great too. The website doesn't entirely do this house justice - it's better and bigger than it seems from the pictures and floor-plans.
Grantown is a nice little town, with enough shops to supply provisions (not just a co-op but also an excellent butcher's, a baker's and a Walkers Shortbread shop!) and plenty of other stuff too (including a good little bookshop). There's plenty of walking near-by, and various attractions within reach for those with kids (Landmark Heritage Park was a big hit).
We will return to this wonderful house, and I would recommend it to anyone wanting somewhere for a family gathering.

“Family stay”
Reviewed April 7, 2012 for a stay in April 2012

Excellent house with great bedrooms and facilities. Kids loved the huge back garden and the trampoline was a hit with them until it snowed!!! Then had even more fun building snowmen, igloos and throwing snowballs at us!!! Fantastic location with lovely walks nearby out the back gate and easy drive to loads of other attractions.

“Fabulous House”
Reviewed March 7, 2012 for a stay in February 2012
2
people found this review helpful

8 adults, 13 children and 1 dog stayed for a long weekend in February and loved the house. There was plenty of space and all the rooms were lovely. The house was spotless and there was everything we needed and more (Loved the dishwasher which cleaned the dishes in 2 minutes!) Plenty of toys for the kids in the playroom and a lovely drawing room for the adults. Kitchen looked as though it had just been refurbished and was really lovely, our favourite place in the house with a family room just off it.
The house is really well located and you can walk into Granton on Spey. Plenty of things to do nearby. We went to Landmark on the Saturday and to Lossiehead beach on the Sunday. Kids had a ball rolling down the sand dunes.
We had shopping delivered when we arrived (note tesco will not deliver as we discovered when we had finished the shopping list ! We used Asda) but there is also a Co-op in Granton on Spey.
Thanks to Lucy and Jay for a great trip. They were so helpful from the moment we booked to when they had to post everything we had left behind back to us! We would definetely recommend this house for large groups.

“Spacious holiday home in an excellent location.”
Reviewed January 3, 2012 for a stay in January 2012

13 of us stayed here over new year and had a fab time. The owners are friendly and very helpful and close by. There was lots of communal areas for games and relaxing.
The kitchen is well equipped with everything you could possibly need to prepare and serve a large meal.
We slept in the double room right at the top of the house which was cold but there were plenty blankets. All the other rooms were cosy and all had nice bathrooms and televisions!
Excellent place to stay to access all the visitor attractions in the surrounding area and we would highly recommend the Hogmany street party for a traditional Scottish experience.
Thank you Jay and Lucy for sharing your fab house!

Thank you to our New Year guests for their great review. We're really pleased you had a lovely time in Grantown and that the house was so well suited to your groups needs. We were surprised to learn that one of the bedrooms was cold, as we have a brand new, very efficient boiler in the house. We've since bled all the radiators and subsequent visitors have told us that the upstairs rooms were just as cosy as the rest of the house. Thanks for letting us know, so we could rectify this issue. Hope to welcome you to The Pines House again soon.
