"A fantastic cottage, amazing location with everything you'd ever need on holiday!"

An amazing cottage in the heart of the Cairngorms, perfect for larger families or groups. Ideally positioned between many beautiful villages, glens, lochs and mountains and it's also close to the Strathspey steam railway ... perfect for visiting Aviemore and all the shops & activities available there. The newly installed kitchen is great with an array of gadgets and lots of storage space. Fabulous gardens with long distance views, a fun games room and plenty of space for storing bikes, skis etc.
A great place .. would recommend it to anyone and the dogs loved it too!!

"Lovely house, well equipped, stunning views, great for extended families."

We stayed at Balvatten Farmhouse with our extended family including 7 'children' ranging in age from 11 to 21!

The house couldn't have been more perfect for us with its two lounges, large kitchen and eating area, laundry etc.
The kids particularly liked the games, DVDs, play station 3, docking station, large shed with table tennis and darts. The adults loved the fact there was always one quiet lounge, the two real fires, well stocked herb and spice draw, well equiped kitchen, lovely bedding. We all appreciated the free WiFi!
Lots of thoughtful touches impressed us like a torch with spare batteries, hairdryers, plenty of chopped wood, dish wash tabs and many more.
The heating was very efficient!
The grounds are lovely, and there is lots of space both inside and out.
The house is in a rural area with stunning views.

We skied at the cairngorm ski area which is about 30 mins drive, there is also the lecht ski area not much further away. Inverness is not far and we went to Loch Ness, just out side Inverness to look for the monster!!

All in all I would recommend this lovely house and the Cairngorms national park really is a beautiful place to visit. We will be back!
