“wake up to this every day its beautiful”
Reviewed September 9, 2013 for a stay in August 2013

I would recommend Croft Cottages to anybody who loves a peaceful relaxing holiday. The views are spectacular the accommodation is excellently equipped with every gadget you could possibly need. The owners are close by but not intrusive but they are there if you require any help and are very obliging. We rented all three cottages for a two week holiday there were 13 of us including a baby we loved how we could all be together all day going from one room to another via the connecting door but in the evening we all had our separate living rooms to escape to. The property is very close to some beautiful places to visit especially the Scottish heritage park which is in the village about a 20 minute walk away and as a bonus it is free to visit but its a must do. I would go back to visit again and stay in the same place and that would be our 3rd visit. I have only one small gripe and that is I could have done with a small freezer as we couldn't stock up on frozen foods which would have been handy for such a large group but I realise if you only rent out one property you probably wouldn't need a freezer.

“Good Location”
Reviewed August 20, 2012 for a stay in June 2012

Agree largely with the description by 'star7474', we stayed in the same cottage, our choice being defined by looking for somewhere in the area that would do the days we wanted (tuesday to sunday) within our budget.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, and found the location great, looking for somewhere that was a bit out of the way, but not completely in the middle of nowhere. We had a meal in the nearby pub (not quite walking distance tho) which was very nice, and enjoyed being able to do a range of walks straight from the door!

Kitchen was well equipped as already said, so it was easy to self-cater. The only thing to note is that the stairs are quite steep going up to the bedroom, so you'd probably want to stay in one of the other cottages if you're a bit unsteady on your feet. It also is set up so you can hire out 2 or 3 together, which could work well for a larger group of friends. I think there is bedding for 5 in just the loft cottage, but as there are only 2 rooms you'd have to get on well to make that work.

Again, I would agree with the description of the bathroom feeling a bit like a caravan, but it was clean and fully functional, shower at decent enough pressure, so no major gripes there.

Anne was very helpful, and responded quickly to queries, so I'd have no problem recommending this to anyone.

“Clean and basic”

We stayed in Croft cottages for 4 nights in the Loft (centred Cottage, while we stayed in Newtonmore. The cottage was very clean and had all the needed untensils needed for cooking, and there was also a room for washing and drying your clothes. The bathroom was very dated as it was all plastic, it felt as if you were in a caravan. The loft area has been converted into a bedroom, it is a nice space but unfortunately you have to climb from the bottom of the bed to get into bed due to the ceiling sloping down so you cannot walk around the bed area, which is a bit of a struggle when you have a drink!

The cottage is quite dated but comfortable for the stay, i dont think i will return as the area is extremely quite, literally no where is open apart from the co operative down the road! Its a good base area for the highlands and walking. The owners live literally next door adjacent to the cottages who are very warm and welcoming. I do feel that there needs to be a private out door area as you felt too close with the owners being right opposite to spend anytime outside the cottage area.
