What a cottage!

5 of 5
If you ever venture to the Highlands for a Scottish break, then look no further. Eastbank in Ballater is by far one of the most superior holiday cottages we have ever stayed in. A beautiful log burner, thoughtful family touches, lovely garden, gated driveway, car port and only a short walk to the town where there is a good array of shops, cafes and a supermarket. The cottage happily sleeps 6 adults in 2 double rooms (one ensuite) and a twin room, however, each bedroom has their own bathroom. Downstairs, there is a beautifully laid out conservatory, gorgeous dining room (although we made that a no go room for our littles), a lovely office area, a twin bedroom and the lounge. Both the lounge and conservatory have Sky tv packages and there is wifi throughout the house. But by far, the pièce de résistance is the kitchen. The kitchen was like my dream kitchen! Farmhouse style, butler sink and the most wonderful Aga. I have never cooked on an Aga before, but it was wonderful and the dog certainly enjoyed sleeping in front of it in the evenings. The breakfast bar was also a fab addition and our son enjoyed sitting there having his breakfast in the mornings. Fresh eggs delivered each week and a lovely loaf of bread and bottle of wine to enjoy for our arrival. And I've saved the best bit until last...THE PANTRY! I was green with envy when I opened the doors to the pantry. So cleverly set back into the wall and better stocked than my own cupboards at home. Amazing! The cottage is stunningly beautiful and you'll be hard pushed to find any faults (I'm yet to find one!) and so ideally placed for a wonderful Highland getaway. Things to do nearby are: Craigendarroch Hotel (1 mile) Ballater Golf Course (1 mile) Balmoral Castle (7 miles, Apr-Jul) Royal Lochnagar Distillery (8 miles) Braemar Castle (16 miles, Apr-Oct) Spittal of Glenshee for skiing (31 miles Aviemore (51 miles) And plenty more as you are right in the middle of the stunning Cairngorms. Jerry and Joss have made their family home into a 5* holiday cottage and when we next travel to the Highlands, we will definitely look it up again!

Lovely cosy cottage in friendly village

4 of 5
We had a wonderful start of the year in the cottage. It is very cosy and complete. Furniture and fittings a bit outdated but everything worked well. Considering the price you pay you get a lot of comfort and facilities. There are thermostat controlled radiators in every room and there is a very nice multifuel stove, so we we're nice and warm even in the winter. Facilities very complete, including bedlinnen, towels, soap, cleaning products, wood and coal for the stove, kitchen towels, cling film, pepper & salt, and so on. Also a large fridge and freezer, a washing machine and dryer. All you need to bring yourselve is your toothbrush and shampoo. The cottage was very clean, allthough the extraction hood could benefit from some more attention. There is no wifi, but good 3G reception. The bed was allright but had a dimple in the middle and was therefore maybe at end of life we felt. Owner is living a few houses further down the road and very friendly and attentive. Some whisky and shortbread were offered for welcome, how nice is that! Tomintoul is a small but very charming village with a good pub at the Avon Hotel and a store village which sells the basic every day groceries. Very beautiful surroundings for touring, walking and of course there are some very nice whisky distilleries to visit. Nice villages to visit (and drive to) are Braemer, Ballatar and Aberlour. All in all we had a really good time and highly recommand this cottage. We certainly will be back!

Excellent location, layout, cleanliness +peaceful

5 of 5
Absolutely awesome weekend. We packed for snow and got brilliant sunshine. Excellent accommodation as described-superb en suite shower, spotless on arrival.Hot tub amazing. Mountain easy to climb-dog had a smile on her face the whole time. Very private-not overlooked at all. Would highly recommend-sad to leave. Would definitely use again.
