Stunning contemporary cottage with breathtaking views, beautifully furnished and with a superb garden and hot tub, located just outside Grantown-on-Spey and the perfect Highland retreat for a large family or group of friends.

This stunning contemporary cottage in the Highlands comfortably sleeps eight people over four bedrooms and welcomes two four-legged friends. Offering breathtaking views and a beautifully-furnished interior, this is the ideal retreat for groups of friends of family get-togethers. And with a hot tub for the humans and an enclosed garden for the furry guests, this property on a working farm has something to keep everyone happy!

Step inside and you'll be met with an extremely versatile open-plan living space that contains a living room, dining room and kitchen, as well as a cosy snug with folding partition doors. The gable end of the room features floor-to-ceiling windows with lovely views and French doors that lead out to a garden where you can fire up the BBQ and dine al fresco. Alternatively, cook up a storm in the contemporary kitchen, cosy up with your pups in front of the wood burner, or retreat to the hot tub in the private garden for some serious chill-out time. At the end of the day there are four tastefully decorated bedrooms to choose from, as well as two sofa beds that offer additional accommodation to three extra guests.

Pack a picnic and take your pups for a lovely stroll at Craigellachie Nature Reserve (17 miles), where you'll find stunning views of the Cairngorms across to Aviemore and several lochans.

Great location. Nice blend of historic Croft house and modern open plan living, stunning views. Spotlessly clean and well equipped. The garden is safe and is ideal for children and pets. The evenings in the hot tub watching the sun descend below the hills were a perfect end to our active days.

Lovely house to stay in which is bigger than the pictures show. Such a high standard of comfort. We felt the beds were super comfy just to reassure you from a previous comment from a customer. Bathrooms all lovely and soooo clean. Views all round the house were lovely. Our dog really enjoyed the large enclosed garden and we enjoyed the new hot tub!Read more Visit Nethy Bridge for really easy to follow walks and gorgeous coffee shop and tables outside the back. A great find all round. Hide

Beautifully restored cottage in a perfect location for exploring the Cairngorms. Very well equipped. The wood burner was lovely in the evenings whilst having a drink and playing board games. The hot tub sits over looking the hills which is stunning. The garden is fully enclosed for pets.

This cottage is fantastic. Not only is it set in a stunning location but the cottage itself is really well designed and was equipped with everything we needed. It is in a great location for short drives to local walks around the lochs and Aviemore. I would not hesitate in booking again.

Our family of five spent a week here and we loved it. The house was beautifully presented and spotlessly clean. Our teens loved the hot tub and I enjoyed the peace and the views. We probably wouldnt have normally paid this much for a holiday home but treated ourselves for a lockdown Uk staycation this year. Glad we did as it was lovely.

Great location. Very quiet and relaxing and the hot tub was a real bonus. Great array of games, dvds, books etc and lovely modern kitchen. Beds really uncomfortable and the cooking utensils were quite old and tired. Nice barbecue on site but no idea if we able to use.
