Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our long weekend stay in this fantastic property, celebrating a 50th birthday! The house/garden is amazing in a perfect and peaceful location! We enjoyed walks in the Cairngorms and along the River Dee, including a trip to a whisky distillery just past the gates of Balmoral! Would highly recommend!

A lovely property

  • 5 of 5

Excellent communication from the owners prior to our arrival. The house was very clean and stocked with towel and basic cleaning products.

Rooms were lovely and the sauna in the annex was excellent. We travelled as a group of 8 and the house had a big kitchen and plenty space for us to sit as a group.

We would definitely stay here again.

Ruim en comfortabel verblijf, prachtige omgeving.

  • 5 of 5

Het huis is gemakkelijk bereikbaar en ligt aan een relatief drukke baan maar aangezien de tuin zo groot is heb je er nauwelijks hinder van.

Binnen is er voldoende ruimte om met 11 volwassenen comfortabel te logeren.

Koken was een plezier in de mooie keuken en alles was er kraaknet.

De omgeving is ronduit schitterend en voor elk wat wils.

Kortom een absolute aanrader.

Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this house. It was the perfect place. The entire house was wonderful, from the kitchen to the backyard to the bedrooms. Our kids loved the upstairs bedroom - it had two beds with matching linens and lamps, all with very adorable birds. The house had a lot of small touches that made it a great place for a family with young children. A crib. Child-friendly utensils and dishes. A swing in the yard.

The surrounding location is absolutely beautiful. The house is a very easy drive to anywhere in the Cairngorms, an area with some of the most amazing views and beautiful drives.

I don't think we could have found a better place! It was perfectly enjoyable to spend the day out and about, then head back home for dinner and relaxing.

One thing we noticed when driving over from Pitlarchy, there's something like a garbage dump or composting site - something that smells very bad and has lots of machinery around it. We were worried the smell would carry over to the house. Thankfully, it didn't!

The Holly Tree Lodge is located near the Glenshee Ski Centre and the Cairngorms National Park. The Blackwater River runs along the bottom of the garden and is ideal for fishing for trout or salmon. Guests are welcome to fish for trout, but salmon fishing license is required. There is a huge choice of golf courses near The Holly Tree Lodge.
