“Great place”

Lovely place great for kids. Only downside is check in quite late at 4pm and the cleaner turned up five minutes later as hadn't been serviced yet. Check out at ten am is quite early with young children

“Great Property”
Reviewed 27 February 2015 for a stay in February 2015

Stayed here with family including two young children (one aged 5 months and one aged 3 years) for 4 nights in February. Very clean, spacious, modern build property with an enclosed garden to rear. Cosy and was an excellent place to stay during winter and would certainly be during summer to take advantage of all the local activities on offer in Aviemore and surrounding area. Cooking facilities are modern, crockery, towels bedding etc all of decent standard. Basic Sky TV package and WiFi in the property if required. Immediate area is quiet and well serviced with a decent sized convenience shop, chip shop and pizza shop just a two minute walk away though certainly not so close as to impact on your stay. Aviemore village centre is a 15 minute walk and local butcher and the like definitely worthy of a visit for supplies!! Would definitely consider returning.

We had an absolutely lovely time staying at Creag Mhor. The house was spotlessly clean and so well equipped - the owners really had thought of everything! The fact that we were able to bring our dog was much appreciated and the private, enclosed garden allowed us to relax while he pottered around outside. The house is more roomy than it seems from the photos and it also very warm and cosy. It was in the perfect spot for us too - walking distance from shops and town but tucked away on a quiet street with ample parking. We would definitely stay here again.

From booking to departure the service received was second to none. I Visited this cottage for a weekend away with friends and it did not disappoint! It has everything you could need in a holiday let and even some leaflets on what the local area has to offer for the adventurer. The town is a short walk or drive from the cottage with a all amenities and independent shops with everything you would need. The town also has a Tesco and there is a cost-cutter just round the corner from the cottage.
This holiday cottage is like a home from home and offers a great escape from reality.

Stayed for 3 nights during Christmas, all four of us had a Fantastic time! Snow Making it extra special! On arrival the cottage was lovely & warm, very cosy & very clean. Added bonus was the Christmas tree which was waiting for us, such a nice touch. Kitchen Very well equipped with everything you need. Very modern cottage, all rooms are Lovely. Bathroom actually is quite big, separate Bath & shower. Enclosed Garden which my dog loved running about in the snow. Lovely views of the snowy mountains from the back garden. In a lovely Location. Close to local shops & Takeaways. Aviemore town is a few minutes drive away, has a good Tesco also lots of great cafe's & Lovely pubs. Couldn't Fault this lovely cottage, always lovely & warm. Looking forward to staying here again for many of years to come.

Creag Mhor is located in a quiet, modern residential estate within a 2-3 minute drive of Aviemore town centre. The house itself is comfortable and well-equipped. A huge plus point for us was the large grassy garden at the rear of the house. Our 2-year old spent many happy hours tiring himself out in there and we felt safe leaving him to his own devices as there was a gate to stop him making a break for freedom. The permanent BBQ with seating area was a lovely touch and we managed to make good use of it in the late September sunshine. The lockable shed was also very handy for storing mountain bikes/baby buggies/etc. We travelled with 2 children - a two year old and a 5 month old and found the house to be just the right size for our needs. I'm so glad we chose this property - we had a fantastic break and were heartbroken on the day of our departure. Hope to return sooner rather than later.
