“Perfect stay at Sundowner Cottage”
Reviewed May 29, 2017 for a stay in May 2017

Ideal location to explore the Cairngorms and surrounding area......on bike, foot or car. Cottage is perfect in every way, even having your own little private area to sit out and watch the wildlife. Wonderful to come back to after a long day on the mountains, as it's so homely. Excellent hosts in Judy and Jules, so friendly but not obtrusive at all. I would definitely return and cannot rate Sundowner highly enough.

“Excellent!!”
Reviewed May 14, 2017 for a stay in April 2017

Had a lovely week staying in Sundowner Cottage!
The cottage was a real home from home and nice to come back to after our days out.
The boys enjoyed the table tennis, and Judy and Jules made us all very welcome.
Lots to do in the area, Strathspey Railway, Balmoral, Cairngorms, and brilliant mountain biking at Laggan Wolftrax!!

“Perfect”
Reviewed April 23, 2017 for a stay in April 2017

Great self catering cottage. Clean,warm, furnished to a high standard. Friendly hosts. Perfect location -plenty to do in this area and the hosts provided good tips. We were out and about every day cycling, walking,zip wiring,visiting wildlife park. But it was always a pleasure to return to the cottage. Brilliant Easter break.

“Another fantastic holiday”

We came again for the first part of the week as a couple and then our daughter and her boyfriend joined us. The welcome was warm as always with fresh bread and a bottle of wine to greet us. Marvellous position as always and the weather was kind if changeable. Lots of walking with some new ones - The Wildcat trail to be recommended. Cycling in Rothiemurhcus and from the front door across the moors on one of General Wades roads and back via Newtonmore. So much to do and see. We will be back and have recommended it to others. Also wifi better than previously.

“Absolutely perfect”
Reviewed August 23, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

This was our second stay and it was just as excellent as the first time. We loved the cottage and Julie and John have thought of absolutely everything, it's like a home from home. The area offers up lots to do and kept us busy the whole time. Thank you for an amazing stay.
