Fully equipped cottage in quiet surroundings

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is very clean and has everything we could wish for. Especially the kitchen is fully equipped, more complete than everything we have experienced so far.

With TV, DVD collection, books, games, brochures for regional attractions and hiking maps there is plenty to do, when having a nice cosy evening at the fireplace.

Eleanor and John are really really kind and provide a homelike stay. This includes a very generous welcome package for breakfast.

Tummel Bridge consists of a handfull of houses including a caravan park with a bistro. It is a good location for day trips, but we would recommend a car.

Picturesque cottage

  • 4 of 5

This is a lovely cottage, very clean and lovely decor. Bedding and towels are very high quality. The owners, Eleanor and John made us very welcome. They live in a house just next door, if any problems. The cottage is very well equipped and sleeps 4, 2 in the bedroom and the sofas in living room coñvert into beds. The bed can be made up as a kibg size or 2 singles. WiFi is available, no charge. A free welcome pack was left for us, bread, milk, biscuits and in the fridge, little mini butters and jams. The cottage is at Tummel Bridge and a great area for watching wildlife or hill walking. The cottage was very cosy and has double glazing, heating and a log burning stove if needed.
