Craigview Cottage Family Cottage description

Holiday home
This cottage sleeps a maximum of four people with a well-equipped fitted kitchen and charming living room with dining area. Situated only twelve miles from Aviemore and thirty-five miles from the Highland town of Inverness, this cosy, terraced cottage is located on a quiet Grantown-on-Spey lane, within the borders of the Cairngorms National Park. Being within Grantown-on-Spey, the cottage is close to a wide number of local amenities, including restaurants and shops, and provides a great base from which to explore much of northern Scotland.

Situated in the heart of Scotland's ruggedly beautiful highlands, Grantown-on-Spey has much to offer. The town itself has a wide range of bars, restaurants and shops and the local area provides great facilities for golfers, fishermen, walkers and bird watchers. For those interested in the area's heritage, the Castle Trail and Whisky Trail are close by, as is the Cairngorms National Park, offering a great place for picnics and nature-watching. For a winter break, this is a great location. With both the Cairngorms and Lecht Ski Centre on the doorstep, there are great opportunities for experienced skiers and snowboarders, as well as people looking to try out the sport for the first time. Despite the wide range of activities on offer, the area is still surprisingly peaceful and offers a great hide away for anybody looking to escape the hustle and bustle of city life.

From the lush green farmlands of the Borders to the ruggedness of the Highlands, the Scots are proud of their land and identity. Scotland also has some of Britain's best beaches with glorious stretches of clean sand over which to roam.

Electric storage heaters. Electric oven, electric hob, microwave, fridge, washer/dryer, TV with DVD player, CD player/cassette/radio, small selection of games/books/DVDs.

The location is quiet, ideal for walking to the local woods which are extensive. Travelling to places of interest on relatively quiet roads was so pleasant. Shopping was made easy as was within a few minutes of the cottage. Very lucky as an entire week of sunshine added to the experience.

Wonderful cottage in the centre of Grantown on Spey. The cottage was very comfy and always warm. There was so much to do in the local area and many of the activities are not dependant on the season making it a great February get away.

The cottage was good value for money. Everything you need for self catering accommodation. We were a party of three adults and it worked well for us. The kitchen was well stocked with equipment. The lounge diner was ideal for our needs. The beds were comfortable.

The cottage is small but ideal for a couple or perhaps a couple with one child. It had everything you need, very clean and very well placed. It was lovely and quiet and the off road parking was great. The owners were very helpful and responded quickly to any questions. It was close to shops and ideally placed for skiing, walking or sightseeing. A very good little base and I would be happy to stay there again and recommend it to friends.

The area was outstanding, friendly people and it was lovely to come back after a long days walk to a warm cosy cottage, would recommend to friends.

Good location, plenty to do in the area. The cottage was very comfortable and very close to local amenities. This is the second time I've stayed here and I can highly recommend it.
Mr Mills

The location of the cottage is excellent being a short walk from all local amenities and central for touring the area. Speyside is such a stunning area and Grantown an ideal place to stay. Everything was superb!
Mr Whitaker

The cottage is very well placed for access to the town and to woodland walks and many places of interest.
Mr Mills
June 2011
The easy access to so many attractions and, being in the town, the ease of shopping for food. The information packs in the cottage are very helpful for planning days out and these is so much available within close proximity to Grantown. The cottage is in a perfect location if, like me, you go for the fishing and the walking.
Mr Hickman

Warm, cosy and welcoming. Very comfortable. Certainly fulfilled most of our needs.
Miss Lawence

I love everything about Scotland and hope to come up and live there soon. Grantown is very well placed for touring the highlands. The people are very friendly. There are plenty of attractions if that is what you want. The scenery is stunning and the wildlife prolific. This cottage was in evey way perfect for me.
Mr Ross

Well positioned for town amenities and for recreational pursuits.

Fantastic location of the house. Very central but lovely and quiet. Good bars and restaurants within walking distance. Plenty to occupy you in the area - no matter what the weather!

Excellent location for so many activities and days out. Cosy, very comfortable accommodation.
Mr Mrs Frost

Grantown on Spey is a real gem, lovely location, lovely people and a great base for touring the highlands. Cragview is a lovely, cosy cottage and having travelled 300 miles on a motorbike, it felt very welcoming. We would recommend the cottage to anyone wanting to spend time in the Highlands. We plan to visit again next year, many thanks to Sykes for providing such quality care.
Mr Howard
September 2009
Overall we had a very nice relaxing time. We found the cottage excellent with everything you could need. If we come back up to that part of Scotland we would stay at Craigview Cottage again.
Mr Mills
September 2008
The accommodation was very clean and the description of the property was a true reflection of what I found on arrival. The location was superb just a couple of minutes walk from the shops, bars and restaurants. Grantown is a superb place, clean and very friendly and ideally situated for numerous activities.
Mrs Vine

Cottage well placed for visiting surrounding area. Off main road made this cottage very quiet.

Sylhet Brasserie serves excellent food. Fantastic area for walking.
Mrs Leahy

The property was ideal for our needs. We were on holiday to do some walking and sightseeing and both were accessible from our base. Everything was catered for in the property and covered in the folder of information about the house and area.
Mr Reeves

Local Indian Brasserie was excellent. Cosy cottage with all amenities to hand. A very central location.

This is an ideal cottage to use as a base for outdoor activities on the River Spey.
Mrs Goddard
August 2007
Grantown on Spey is a lovely town with all the facilities you could need and very friendly people. The cottage was, indeed, central for many of the attractions we wanted to visit. The property was comfortable and all needs had been anticipated e.g. the provision of clingfilm and bags for packed picnics. All this contributed to an enjoyable and worry free holiday.
Mr Templeton
September 2007
The cottage was a major plus but also the amenities in the town were first class and the activities to be found around the area would suit every one.
February 2015
A fine little cottage near the centre of Grantown-on Spey. Easy access to skiing and other attactions this area has to offer.
Mr Matzken
July 2006
Nice town, cosy little cottage. Kitchen and bathroom very well equipped, nice bedrooms.
September 2011
A comfortable cottage with more facilities than we required. The use of the shed as a bicycle store was much appreciated. Convenient parking. Local facilities comfortably within walking distance. Booking with Sykes was straightforward.
December 2011
A small poblem occured at the cottage and the owner, who lives a very good car ride from the cottage, came at once to rectify it. We were very impressed. This was the third time that we have stayed at Craigview and we find the cottage well appointed, warm and comfortable. It is idealy set in a very quiet cul de sac off the main street which is means that one can stroll into town without using the car. The woods and river are close by and the hills and coast (Findhorn) not far away. As we are fond of wildlife we enjoyed seeing five red squirrels within half and hour of arriving and walking to the old Spey Bridge. The abundance of wildlife is one of the pleasures of this area.We will returrn next year to Craigview.
June 2013
Excellent service and the location was perfect for the town and the amenities. The owner was a phonecall away and helped us find the property, which we struggled with a bit. confused by the fact that there were a number of properties with the same house number. The only thing I wasn't keen on was the bathroom which was small and difficult to access and the door to it ill fitting, but otherwise a very modern and comfortable cottage. Highly recommended
May 2011
A great place to base a Scotish holiday at any time of year. Great place to return to after a day skiing or whatever else. So easy to find a great eatting place just down the road. I wish I owned this house
August 2011
lovely, clean and cosy cottage. nice and central but tucked away from the main street so quiet. nearly everything provided that you could need apart from towels which people should be alerted to.
December 2009
The cottage had everything one needed. Clean and comfortable. Weather was not to good when we visited but the cottage was warm and cosy. The cotttage was very central for visiting various locations in that part of Scotland. On the doorstep were shops and just round the corner a lovely woodland area for walking. One of the nicest things about the location where the friendly people and brilliant scenery. Cannot think of anything we did not like.
Mrs Smith
June 2014
We found the cottage to be very cosy, homely and comfortable. It was very clean. We were very impressed with it. We really enjoyed our stay. We would tell our friends about it and maybe even go again someday.
January 2011
There are only three suggestions I have: 1) Heated towel rod and better heater in the bath - it was so cold towels never came close to drying and the heater shut off mid-shower. 2) Verify with local caretaker that the reserve heater is on. Landlord said he had requested but when we arived (a day behind schedule, no less) the heater had not been turned off so the flat was very cold 3) Please put a snow shovel in the shed (we presumed a former guest may have 'borrowed' it last winter. There were, thankfully, two big push brooms to clear snow and plenty of grit (but no shovel to spread it with...) Overall, we loved it. Kitchen is very well appointed and we were pleasantly surprised with the experience
December 2009
the cottage was very nice and cosy with everything you could hope for in fact better because you could if needed to do washing and get it dry in the drier which many other places do not have. the cottage was nice and clean and well looked after to a high standard.
