Visited croft holidays for the weekend in the beginning of June. The cottages are situated in a nice location not too far from Aviemore and other attractions. It's a self catering accomodation,very clean and self sufficient.Our children enjoyed the farm land around the area and even got to feed some lambs and enjoyed that very much.This accomodation is very good for families with young children and pet friendly.We would reccomend this accomodation to family and friends.

“Great place to stay with things to do and see right out of the front door!”

Spent a week with my wife, daughter and dog in February and no one day has been the same in terms of weather and the way the landscape changed. The most appealing fact regarding the strategic position of the lodge is that it is right at the bottom of the mountains and you can start your walking or climbing adventure straight from the lodge's door, without needing to drive anywhere.

“Excellently positioned little cottage in a beautiful landscape”

We arrived at "the loft" and were warmly welcomed by Anne. The cottage was very clean and tidy and had everything you needed. There were even a few store cupboard essentials!
My favourite room was the bedroom with it's pitched ceiling and lovely big skylight.
The cottage is perfectly situated just outside (about 15min walk) from newtonmore village. Home of the wildcat experience and trail and highland folk museum and some very special cafés. A really friendly pretty little village. I can recommend the farm along from the loft for their home grown sausages and eggs.
We had a really lovely relaxing week with lots of walking and adventure with our two dogs.
Thank you Anne and Ian

“A quiet, nice and cosy cottage”

Hello everyone, we've had a great time at Loft Cottage. We're a family of 4 (2 kids) and we've really enjoyed our stay!
The host was welcoming, friendly and helpful whenever we had a question. The cottage is perfect for families as the bedroom is upstairs - so parents can spend a nice evening downstairs while the kids are sleeping.
It's very quiet, hardly any cars during the day - our kids were often outside and spent much time with the horses on the other side of the road. Shops, museums and restaurants of Newtonmore can be reached within a very short time, though you need your car as the cottage is a wee bit outside of the village.
We've had so much fun there and the views were fantastic! We'd recommend Loft Cottage to family and friends. Thanks Anne for a great time there.

“Great Cottage, Great spot, Great owners.”
Reviewed July 27, 2012 for a stay in June 2012

The property suited us perfectly. It was clean, sufficiently spacious and well provided. The owners were very helpful and friendly and were interested in our activities (studying butterflies and moths) but not intrusively so. The location was as one 'cottage' in a group of three plus the owners' home situated amongst farm fields used for grazing and close to un-managed land (real countryside!). The accommodation was about 1.5 miles (estimated) from Newtonmore centre which has a small supermarket and a few other shops.
