About the property

A 3 bedroom house by river where pets are welcome just 6 miles from Aviemore

Ord cottage and the bothy are set in over half an acre of land, adjacent to the river at Feshiebridge. It is ideally located for exploring the Highlands as it is only 5km from the A9 but if you just want to relax it is surrounded by beautiful countryside and there is plenty to do locally. Glen Feshie is a quiet and lovely Highland glen with abundant wildlife, we see red squirrels, deer, osprey and lots of birds including crested tits. There is excellent mountain biking and walking; canoeing, dinghy sailing and windsurfing on Loch Insh, 1km from cottage and swimming in the river close to the house. Despite being in a quiet location it is only 10km from all the facilities of Aviemore.

Ord Cottage has 3 bedrooms (1 double, 2 twins) a large sitting room with open fire, a sofa bed and uninterrupted views of the river and glen, a large, very well equipped, newly refurbished kitchen/ dining room, a new bathroom and a shower room with a walk in shower.

Part of the garden is fenced and therefore is safe for small children.

The house is ideal for families and many have returned, approximately 70% of guests have stayed before. Our aim is to provide family and pet friendly accommodation at a reasonable budget.

The bothy is sometimes used by the owner and her family for the weekend, we will not intrude on your holiday as the cottage and it's garden are 2.5m above the bothy.

Mountain biking track runs past cottage and watersports are available on Loch Inch 1 miles away.

If you have stayed before please text me on 07590 465565 for returning guest's discount.

Autumn break

Great location if you like quiet outdoors and easy access to forest for walking and biking. Very peaceful at night, loads of wildlife right outside the windows. Cottage very well equipped and comfortable - especially kitchen and bathroom. Mid-way between Aviemore and Kungussie so handy for shops and other attractions. Good commuication and directions from owner. Lots of useful bits provided - maps, dvd's, games,books, broadband, phone etc.

Good activities locally - highly recommend Inshriach cake shop at the plant nursery, Kincraig Wildlife Park, bike tracks and walks in surrounding forest and round Rothiemurchus estate.

We have stayed in a few houses around aviemore as prefer not to be in the town - this house is the best house so far.

There is loads of space inside for 6 people and a sofa bed for the 7th and 8th if required. It is fully equipped and everything worked (unlike other houses) and the log fire just added to the atmosphere and stay.

The owner was really welcoming and helpful also. A gem of a house if you want to be a short 10 min drive outside the noise of aviemore.

Lovely homely feel with great scenery.

  • 5 of 5

Ord House was all we needed and more. My girlfriend and I stayed for three nights and found it very comfortable. The facilities were great, from the open fire to spacious bathroom. It was very clean and everything was very well kept.

The location was fantastic as we enjoy long walks in the countryside and we were so close to lots of interesting places. Although there were too many things to do in the time we had so we look forward to coming back.

Alison was very helpful by giving us well detailed directions to the house. Lesley next door was very friendly and gave us a very warm greeting. We thoroughly enjoyed our time here and would recommend it to anyone.

We look forward to our next holiday there.

Great property!

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was in a fantastic location to get to all the points of interest we wanted to see. It was exceptionally clean and more spacious than I expected. Everything you could possibly need was provided for, especially in the kitchen. The bathroom was fab, massive bath and power shower. Carol, the owner was helpful all the way through, especially when I struggled with the tv on our first night! She called us immediately and helped out and the neighbours were also on hand, without being imposing. I would recommend this rent to anyone wanting peace and quiet without feeling isolated and the area was so safe for my young granddaughter and dog! Locally, the Highland Wildlife Park is a must and if it's the right season, the ospreys at Lochs Garten and Insh and the tearooms/alpine garden centre just up the road are well worth a visit, lovely coffee and cake with a brilliant viewing area to watch the birds and red squirrels. If it's your visit to the area though, two weeks would be good, I've been many times but not with family, let's just say we packed a lot into a week taking Emily to see everything.....however, we managed to relax in the evenings and sat out until late, (the night sky was amazing as there is little light pollution) after which we went in to sit in front of the lovely log fire. (Once I could get Emily out of the bath!!)
