Considering we booked this last minute and had looked at several other holiday rentals, this was by far superior to any other available - we couldn't believe our luck! Super location for the Cairngorms, luxury accommodation, only two of us so very spacious, spotlessly clean and every conceivable thing one could want. Quiet site (at least whilst we were there), we even had superb weather. Douglas very kindly provided a very generous grocery pack for our arrival. We were able to do do several very pleasant walks from the site but no problem to get to Aviemore, the funicular up to the Cairngorm plateau, Lake Morlich, again a lovely walk round the lake and up to Grantown on Spey. The WiFi was a bit hit and miss and at £2.50 a day (not sure that has anything to do with Douglas) a bit pricey but at least we were able to keep in touch with family. We went with the hope of seeing some wildlife but that really didn't happen, a red squirrel on our last afternoon, a shrew on a forest walk, a pair of baby red grouse on the moors, we think we saw crossbills and crested tits but we did see on several occasions the steam train that passes through Boat of Garten. Thoroughly enjoyed it and would certainly return and recommend it
Peaceful and ideal base location to tour the surrounding area. Chalet is very clean, well equipped and pretty spacious for a 3 bedroom chalet. Everything in good working order with good power shower and the blue-tooth speakers were a useful unexpected addition. Welcome pack was also a nice touch and enjoyed! Great location for walking, touring or just relaxing in lovely peaceful surroundings. Good for golfers with excellent course just minutes away. Golf Club bar is also nice place to relax overlooking a stunning course & scenic backdrop; serving some good food (look out for the burger nights) and good value too. Look out for the steam train passing by - Worth a visit! There were other restaurants nearby, but did not try during our stay. No complaints, and thanks for a lovely short break!
Short Easter holiday break with my sister and our children (2 x 10 year old and 1 x 9 year old). The lodge is very clean and well equipped throughout. Fresh groceries supplied on arrival very much appreciated. Good location near Aviemore, Landmark, lots of walks etc.
We had a great stay at this lodge. We booked it for the children's half term week so we could go skiing. Luckily the weather was good to us and we enjoyed 5 days skiing. The lodge is situated 5 miles from Avimore and about 10-12 mile from the mountains. If you are looking for a family friendly pub with a good atmosphere I would recommend the Bridge in Avimore. Also the pizza restaurant is great value for money. In Boat if Garton there are two places to eat and we tried both. If I am honest Anderson's is lovely and well worth a visit. We did not have the best experience in the other place which was the boat hotel. This was due to a two and half hour wait for food. They were extremely sorry and gave us a couple of free drinks, so not all bad! We really appreciated the location of the lodge it is in such a beautiful area... We even had a trip to loch ness which is about 45 minutes away. There is so much to do in the area in all seasons. Douglas who owns the caravan is wonderful, any questions you have he will answer quickly and in detail. The caravan Is clean, cosy and has everything you need including a lovely little food hamper to get you started.
