“Holiday cottage with everything”
Reviewed 14 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Fished for a week on the Dee in August.
Ballater is a fantastic town and 18 Golf Road is perfectly situated for all the necessary amenities(including the fabulous butchers!) and the great outdoors.
The cottage is beautifully presented, decorated and equipped with everything you will need for your stay......... I LOVE cottages that provide those little thoughtful touches.....dishwasher tablets/liquid/toilet rolls/coffee/bin bags etc..(all the little things you need but will forget to buy!)
Highly recommended and I fully intend to return.

“Fantastic Holiday Rental 5*”
Reviewed 26 July 2015 for a stay in April 2015

Fantastic place to stay
Cottage is beautifully decorated, very spacious, loads of mod cons & equipment, clean & tidy, garden is great too very nice for sitting out in the sun, central location ideal for going to visit shops & restaurants. Couldn't have asked for anything better we had a brilliant week staying here, we well defiantly be booking again

“Superb house, real home from home”
Reviewed 12 June 2015 for a stay in May 2015

This is a beautiful place, convenient for all Ballater amenities, opposite an excellent Indian Restaurant, next door to the famous Balmoral Bakers and 3 doors from the new Co-op superstore. Don't be deceived by the external pictures, its a large property with 3 good and comfortable bedrooms, ensuite bathroom on the ground floor and two bedroom with house shower room upstairs.
The attention to detail is superb. Seasoned wood for the woodturner, a whole selection of washer and dishwasher tabs, cleaning kit, cling firm etc. The kitchen lacks nothing and there is an excellent outdoor eating area accessed through large bifold doors.
Fast BT Wifi was an added bonus!
The owner is totally brilliant, nothing any trouble at all and even offered to travel to the house when we had a minor problem with a lock (a good 2 hrs journey each way!).
Already booked again for 2016 for Royal Deeside Golf Week. Wouldn't go anywhere else.

“Excellent cottage, had everything you could need. Great wood burner for those chillier Scottish evenings!”
Reviewed 3 June 2015 for a stay in May 2015

We stayed for a week at the end of May. This cottage was a great base, had all you could need. Exceptionally clean and lovely homely feel. We would definitely come back. Ballater has lots of good places to eat out all within walking distance of the cottage.

“A Very Happy Hogmanay”
Reviewed 5 January 2015 for a stay in January 2015

We stayed in the cottage the week after Christmas for Hogmanay. The cottage is lovely and very well looked after. Although situated just off the village square it was very peaceful and yet handy for the local shops and nearby walks.

The open plan lounge/dining room/kitchen was ideal for our group. We loved the wood burning stove and there was a plentiful supply of wood on the wood pile in the back garden. A lovely way to spend the last week of the year - long walks followed by a glass of whisky by the fire. Happy 2015!
