A warm, comfortable cottage in secluded surroundings. It was a short distance from Grantown-on-Spey which is a lovely town with all the amenities. There was loads to do in the surrounding area or just chill out in the house.

We loved the location and the fact you could walk out of the door into lovely walks in the woods. The cottage is well equipped and cosy.We would definitely recommend.

Fabulous location on the forest, with no passing traffic. Total tranquillity and lovely for wildlife including deer. We fed the birds and really enjoyed their visits. The Old Laundry is very well equipped, comfortable and immaculate. The owners have made it homely and it has all the facilities you could need. The fire makes for a very cosy place to relax and admire the stunning scenery. Especially beautiful in the snow. The benefit of the property location is that it's a great escape but near enough to Grantown for a quick trip out for shopping etc. Amazing property in a fabulous location, with very helpful and friendly owners a call away if you need any advice.

Lovely setting with views over woods, fields and hills. Close enough to Grantown for civilisation (great fishing shop there too) and Aviemore. The cottage was perfectly organised, had all we needed and was a real pleasure to stay in. The spacious kitchen was really good. Along Speyside there was so much to do: walking, fishing, visiting the many distilleries, day trips to the coast.

Superb location, very very peaceful. Great layout of holiday cottage. Good 'information pack' about the cottage was provided. Facilities are very good and it was lovely to have the wood burning stove. Would certainly use again and happy to recommend.

Very well maintained, one of the most organised and luxurious places I have ever stayed in. Surrounded by beautiful countryside, provided us with beautiful walks and scenery. I would surely visit and stay in there again.

It was the best holiday we have ever had had in Britain. We fell in love with Scotland and we would go there again and stay in The Old Laundry.

The property and location were fantastic, we could not have asked for anything more from a cottage getaway. We will definitely look to return again in the future.

The house and the setting were ideal for us as a family. It was a very welcoming property with all we needed provided. It was lovely to see the wildlife. A great base for us to go out and about.
Mr Hartley

We had a wonderful time at the cottage and travelled all over Scotland. The cottage was lovely and idyllic and quiet at night so sleeping was never a problem. There was plenty of room and lovely and clean and tidy. I would definitely recommend this cottage to anyone else.

Amazing property in the forest with no traffic and people but town only just over a mile away. Beautifully appointed with very well equipped kitchen and utility room. Very comfortable throughout, warm and cosy. Immaculate and very clean. Attention to detail is a credit to the very helpful and friendly owners. Comfortable beds and very good bathroom facilitates. Lovely walks in the forest, spectacular in the heavy snow. We fed the birds and was deer on most days. Great base for exploring The Highlands but equally lovely to spend time relaxing by the fire. A wonderful gem in a stunning place.

We stayed at the old laundry with my sister and brother-in-law for 4 nights in early March. It's a perfect location in view of the imposing Grantown castle with beautiful highland scenery and abundant wildlife. There are lovely walks into town and beyond and many activities in easy reach. We tried out the cross country Segway at the Rothimurchus Estate near Aviemore which was brilliant fun. We also took the funicular railway to the top of Cairngorm, well worth a trip. All in all a fantastic holiday with a wonderful base to chill out and relax in

Well appointed property. Quiet and peaceful location although flipside is that it can feel a little isolated at times. Restaurants in the area not great but the kitchen in the property is more than adequate to cook up a feast yourself. Helpful owners will give you all you need to know via a phone call. Makes you feel like a trusted and welcome guest to their family holiday home, perfect. Would definitely stay again!
