“It's, almost, our second home.” Returned to Sycamore Cottage, after the holiday booked in 2020 was 'carried over'. This is our third stay in this lovely cottage. A perfect place for a quiet getaway. The garden has several bird feeders that attract goldfinches, yellow hammers and various other birds to watch. Ideal location and close to Aviemore for a variety of shops, cafes and restuarants/bars. It is a lovely walk into Boat of Garten, with its 'Aladin's Cave' Post Office shop. We plan to return on a regular basis.
Amazing wee cottage for exploring around the Aviemore/Grantown area. Lovely modern kitchen. The stove was amazing and really packed a punch. Sofa was smaller than we were used to and no door sectioning off the bedroom which would have been nice. Bed was comfortable although I have never seen one so far of the ground. Very dog friendly. Overall a great stay.
A fantastic wee cottage which was cozy and warm. It had everything we needed and was very comfortable. The views from the bedroom were lovely. The cottage felt very private although situated in Brionys garden.
We loved the log fire but the heating was extremely effective and efficient. Very close to the mountains, trails and lovely villages.
“Lovely cottage with thoughful touches” A lovely place to stay, with thoughtful touches that make it special. The woodburning stove makes it feel extra cosy, and we loved the cabin feel, with windows looking out at the bird feeder, garden and trees. Briony and Martin were very welcoming and helpful, and the cottage had everything we needed. Handy to have the cover over the outdoor table and chairs - it's a lovely place to sit and relax. The location is nice and quiet, but with easy access to lots of different things to do.
This is a fantastic Airbnb and very close to Aviemore and the main attractions nearby. It is a very easy and accessible location. The accommodation itself is large and has a great kitchen and dining area, so good in fact that we preferred to stay in and cook ourselves rather than eat out. It has a very nice cabin feel to it while also having all the mod cons such as large TV, Oven, and washing machine. The host greeted us on arrival and helped show us where to park and provided us with useful tips for the local area.
“Beautiful Cottage” Loved my stay at the sycamore cottage. Was very clean, had everything you needed and in a beautiful setting.
The garden was fully enclosed so could leave the door open for my dog.
Its such a perfect location for exploring the cairngorms and very close to aviemore.
“Beautiful Cosy Cottage” My husband and I have just returned after our second stay here. We love this well equipped cottage for two. Good situation with a short walk to the village. There are many walks from the doorstep as such a good position. Briony and Martin are lovely welcoming hosts. I would hope in the future we can visit again. So peaceful and relaxing.
Awesome wee space, great hosts. The whole booking/checking in experience was easy and friendly.
The cottage itself was decorated amazingly and such a beautiful location. Away from it all, but walking distance to a beer garden- the dream!
Feel so much better for a few relaxing days here! Definitely recommend!!
Just wonderful! Cosy and compact cottage yet with spacious living area and lovely secure garden for the dog. Watching the birds at the bird feeders was one of our (and the dogs) favourite pastimes. Great location, easy to find, and only 10 mins from Aviemore. Lovely walks locally. The maps provided in the cottage were really useful. Thank you, we hope to be back in future!
We spent a fantastic couple of days in Sycamore Cottage. Martin met us on arrival and gave us some pointers for the local area which was gratefully received. The cottage itself is perfectly orientated facing the river and countryside to create a private, fenced off area. The location is ideally placed for Aviemore and the Cairngorms and we thoroughly enjoyed our time here.
Home from home 🙂 if you're a couple wanting to take in the sites of Aviemore whilst still keeping your home comforts then look no further!
There was clear communication from Briony and Martin from the word go, even before we had booked the cottage.
The cottage is down at the bottom of their garden, but don't let that put you off. They had fenced an area for our own private garden, bird feed and decking, plus the views overlook the river, not their house, so you feel like your in your own private location.
Martin was there to greet us to ensure we were settled in and was to hand if we had any problems (which we didnt).
The house was super clean and comfortable, but it was the small added extras that made it...
- dog treats, bowls and towels (dog towels came in handy as we had so much rain ours were drenched!)
- OS maps so we could plan our walks
-fresh eggsfrom their chickens
- wood for the fire (although the house was so warm we didnt need it)
- a fully stock kitchen, we cooked ever night and wasn't short of any utensils.
Was more than happy with the cottage and couldn't recommend enough.
Thank you for a cosy cottage after our long days out.
We have had a perfect stay at Sycamore Cottage. Briony met us on arrival and welcomed us with freshly made bread and eggs from her chickens. Waking up the following morning to a dusting of snow and amazing views was just wonderful. There's a lovely spot for dogs just out the back of the garden and the cottage is super cosy and warm. Lovely touches like dressing gowns, dog blankets and lots of logs for the log burner.
Great location for driving to local amenities and loads of amazing walks nearby. We hope to come back in the summer.
My partner and I stayed at the cottage as part of a weekend getaway in the Highlands. Briony's communication was great and the check in smooth despite us getting in a bit late. The cottage is cosy, modern and Briony has ensured that it is absolutely neat (even the cooking utensils are lined up neatly). We appreciated the eggs left for breakfast and the wood burning stove for cosy nights in front of the fire. I highly recommend Briony's place for a peaceful retreat near the Cairngorms.
