Situated within the Cairngorms National Park - Britain's largest - and overlooking the bubbling River Spey, Newtonmore has a lot to offer its visitors, no matter what the time of year.

With golf, fishing, pony trekking, walking, bird-watching, cycling, mountain-biking, climbing and skiing all available locally, this fun filled destination is sure to have something for everyone's taste and budget.

The Cottage was very well equipped and the location was great for our holiday.

A lovely cosy house. In a good location with plenty of walks nearby and bar meals just a couple of minutes walk away.

We liked the fact that Newtonmore was noncommercialised. It had a good supermarket nearby, and we really enjoyed hill walking in the area and being able to walk from the property. Woodlands was a very comfortable and homely base.

Lovely house in a beautiful area, as comfortable as our own.

The accommodation was very good and the location excellent. There was loads of family activities within the area that were a hit with the kids, teen and adults. We recommend doing the wildcat hunt, and purchasing the book from the centre on the high street. It may seem pricey, but it really is not, and was great fun. We will most certainly recommend the property, and are already wondering about booking it next year.

The house was lovely, this was our third time in Newtonmore and this is the best house we have stayed in. Really handy for all the shops and The Glen Hotel is very close for meals. We are still finding new things to do and just love the area.

We loved the location of the cottage. It was a few minutes walk from the railway station and our favourite pub as well as having plenty of room for us and our guests. Red squirrels in the garden were an added bonus.

We were 6 adults who stayed for 5 nights at Woodlands during June. The weather was not always the best (no surprise), but coming home each evening to the cottage was warm and welcoming. On the 2 evenings we did have fine weather, we set up the supplied BBQ on the lawn and talked until the star came out. The house has one master bedroom with large bed, another large room with two single beds, and a smaller room with 'adult bunks'. I stayed in the bunk room, and while comfortable, it is a little on the small side if you have suitcases in there too. Other than that, everything was perfect. Lovely living room, a kitchen that had all the appliances we needed, washing machine and dryer, and a bathroom upstairs and down. The location is just off the main road, but within easy walking distance to the pub, restaurants, and shops. Overall a very pleasant stay,

Cottage was really well presented and comfortable. It was well positioned for the National Park.

This venue is the perfect base to explore the national park. Not too close to the riff raff and all the facilities to make a pleasant break. Excellent instructions to all amenities and nice and warm for our autumn stay. One development would be to tighten the squeaky bed in the main bedroom.

This is. Wonderful rental, with everything you could ever need. (Had to buy a snow shovel) . We stayed over Christmas, had family and friends for Christmas Day. Built snowmen. Watched films all snuggled up beside the log fire. The tree was glistening when we arrived. The local eateries are near, and good -with range of prices and also take always. We ate in mostly as kitchen had everything !! Beds comfy and warm, and everything to very high standard, and very clean. Cannot fault anything. Even red squirrel made a number of visits to the bird table. And is the most amazingly romantic place to accept a proposal of marriage!!!!

My wife, son and I and a friend visited this property, and left at the end of week 1 of 2. Deisel smell permeated the house. Furniture was terribly soiled; we cleaned it. When we cleaned it, we used the Dyson cleaner that was already full, never emptied of old dirt. The washing machine required an extension cord from an outside room to an enclosed porch. The double master bedroom mattress was nearly unusable; it was like a roll out bed mattress. The kitchen was moderated equipped. Bathrooms were acceptable. There were, however, dead rats decaying under floorboards, the smell was very obvious. We all left with lung infections; our son went home to California with a bronchial disease. We complained to the agent, Sykes Cottages. Our two weeks was refunded to us and they arranged another cottage of our choice. We have photos of this experience and could share.

This property had plenty of room and was well equipped. It easily accommodates 6 people, the members of our party were not sat on each others lap. The central heating was excellent and the house was warm when we got back from 8 hours of winter climbing in the Northern Corries. Will be booking this property next year.

This is a real hot-spot! When you stay at Woodlands Cottage you reach both big and small places and events whithin an easy reach with either a car, or you can walk. The lovely "Wildcattrail" goes just outside you doorstep and within a 5 min walk you could have a delicious homemade meal at "The Glen Hotel". If you long for a shoppingexperience Inverness is only 45 minutes away if you have a car. If it rains: Then stay inside, fire up the fireplace and cuddle up on the coach with a cup of tea. The cottage is so clean and well equipped its like coming home.
