“Annual Family Gathering”
Reviewed April 12, 2012 for a stay in March 2012
1
person found this review helpful

18 of us - ranging in age from 9 months up to 71 years - stayed at The Pines this year for our seventh annual family get-together: and I can say without doubt that this is by far the best house we've had so far. Jay and Lucy were fantastic, very friendly and welcoming. The kitchen is well-equipped - we have a lot in the party who like to cook - and also provides an attached sitting area where spectators can sit and chat to keep the cooks company. That gave the whole place a real family atmosphere. All the bedrooms were great too. The website doesn't entirely do this house justice - it's better and bigger than it seems from the pictures and floor-plans.
Grantown is a nice little town, with enough shops to supply provisions (not just a co-op but also an excellent butcher's, a baker's and a Walkers Shortbread shop!) and plenty of other stuff too (including a good little bookshop). There's plenty of walking near-by, and various attractions within reach for those with kids (Landmark Heritage Park was a big hit).
We will return to this wonderful house, and I would recommend it to anyone wanting somewhere for a family gathering.

“Family stay”
Reviewed April 7, 2012 for a stay in April 2012

Excellent house with great bedrooms and facilities. Kids loved the huge back garden and the trampoline was a hit with them until it snowed!!! Then had even more fun building snowmen, igloos and throwing snowballs at us!!! Fantastic location with lovely walks nearby out the back gate and easy drive to loads of other attractions.

“Fabulous House”
Reviewed March 7, 2012 for a stay in February 2012

people found this review helpful

8 adults, 13 children and 1 dog stayed for a long weekend in February and loved the house. There was plenty of space and all the rooms were lovely. The house was spotless and there was everything we needed and more (Loved the dishwasher which cleaned the dishes in 2 minutes!) Plenty of toys for the kids in the playroom and a lovely drawing room for the adults. Kitchen looked as though it had just been refurbished and was really lovely, our favourite place in the house with a family room just off it.
The house is really well located and you can walk into Granton on Spey. Plenty of things to do nearby. We went to Landmark on the Saturday and to Lossiehead beach on the Sunday. Kids had a ball rolling down the sand dunes.
We had shopping delivered when we arrived (note tesco will not deliver as we discovered when we had finished the shopping list ! We used Asda) but there is also a Co-op in Granton on Spey.
Thanks to Lucy and Jay for a great trip. They were so helpful from the moment we booked to when they had to post everything we had left behind back to us! We would definetely recommend this house for large groups.

“Spacious holiday home in an excellent location.”
Reviewed January 3, 2012 for a stay in January 2012

13 of us stayed here over new year and had a fab time. The owners are friendly and very helpful and close by. There was lots of communal areas for games and relaxing.
The kitchen is well equipped with everything you could possibly need to prepare and serve a large meal.
We slept in the double room right at the top of the house which was cold but there were plenty blankets. All the other rooms were cosy and all had nice bathrooms and televisions!
Excellent place to stay to access all the visitor attractions in the surrounding area and we would highly recommend the Hogmany street party for a traditional Scottish experience.
Thank you Jay and Lucy for sharing your fab house!

Thank you to our New Year guests for their great review. We're really pleased you had a lovely time in Grantown and that the house was so well suited to your groups needs. We were surprised to learn that one of the bedrooms was cold, as we have a brand new, very efficient boiler in the house. We've since bled all the radiators and subsequent visitors have told us that the upstairs rooms were just as cosy as the rest of the house. Thanks for letting us know, so we could rectify this issue. Hope to welcome you to The Pines House again soon.

“A Truely Wonderful House”
Reviewed November 20, 2011 for a stay in November 2011

I have just spent a long weekend with my family at this fantastic house. It is the 5th time we have rented a big house and this is the best we have been to. The description and photos on the web site are very accurate, IT IS AS GOOD AS IT LOOKS AND SOUNDS.The house is exceptionally comfortable, cosy and homely, and very well maintained to a high standard both inside and out.The kitchen is very well stocked with more than enough crockery and pans, it had every item we needed, and it was ideal having the open plan family room adjacent to the kitchen. The extra sitting rooms allow for quiet and noisy areas so everyone can be happy. The only negative point I would make is that the dinning room is a little tight for 20 people, but there is seating in the kitchen and for our group it worked fine.The house is in a lovely setting, the garden is large with lots of outdoor toys, allowing youngsters to have loads of fun. The owners are very helpful and thoughtful providing lots of little extras, such as complementary bottle of wine, toiletries in the bathrooms, excellent book and music collection which give it an added personal touch and makes the whole experiance extra special.

Thank you Maureen for the kind words and great review, it's really good to know that people do notice the extra effort we go to to try and make it more homely. I wanted to respond to your point about the dining room being a little tight for 20 (and you are quite right - it is a little tight), we have also had twenty people round the table and whilst it is possible, it's an exercise in elbow control! With that in mind I have come up with a solution: moving the piano into the sitting room gives enough space to extend the table to make it more comfortable for 20 people to sit around. I also think the sitting room is a better place for the piano, so everything should work out nicely!

“Now a Luxury Self Catering House!”
Reviewed October 28, 2011 for a stay in October 2011

What a fabulous place to stay! We had a great week - first half with our family, and second half with our NCT Gang - 38 folk from age 6 months to 92 over the course of our hols!! and never once did The Pines feel full! Highly recommend to all. Thanks to the owners of The Pines House - it is a truly superb luxury self catering let. We've stayed in many large holiday homes over the year's and we all agreed this one is by far our favourite. www.thepineshouse.com
