The cottage is perfect, in a lovely location and close to all amenities. Briony is a great host and greeted us with a warm welcome when we arrived, we will certainly be staying again.

5 star rating“4 Day Break” Had a fantastic stay in Sycamore Cottage set on the edge of Boat of Garten, Martin the owner could not of been any more welcoming and helpful during my stay. Plenty of walks from the doorstep and surrounding area for exploring and taking in the fresh air. Highly recommend the welcome hamper as all sourced from local produce and a nice touch to start your adventures. Will defo be back again many thanks for making mine and Wallace’s trip a great break.

This is a great place to stay with many walks from the cottage or only a very short drive away. It's a lovely cottage equipped with everything you need. Briony and Martin are lovely hosts who were able to accommodate us arriving earlier than the check in time for which we were very grateful!

We had a really lovely stay at the cottage and would happily return for another visit!

A very clean and cosy cottage from where you can make nice walks to Boat of Garten.

Check in went seamlessly and wen the weather asks for it there is a nice wood burner!

(A quite busy road is not far away but it didn't bother me to much.)

We've just had a fantastic stay at Sycamore Cottage. Briony was a fantastic host and had thought of everything that you might possibly need when staying there.

The cottage was wonderfully cosy and located in a great location for exploring the Cairngorms. This was our first time visiting this area of Scotland and we were not disappointed by the accommodation or the stunning location.

Briony's place was great. A cosy cottage with modern amenities. Absolutely everything thought of. We particularly liked the well equipped kitchen, which meant we could eat in with ease. The wood burning stove is a fantastic addition too.

The cottage is absolutely beautiful and has lovely views as well, even when lying in bed! So tastefully decorated and super clean, it was a real treat to stay in. All the amenities of home too; we enjoyed the opportunity to do a load of laundry as we were 10 days into our holiday. We even enjoyed a quiet snuggle on the couch watching a movie one night. The special trip we got to take with Martin to see the badgers was the highlight of our trip and I highly recommend it to everyone! We only wish we lived closer so we could stay again.

A fantastic cottage in a great location. Sycamore cottage is very cosy, well equipped and spottlessly clean. Everything is very modern. An ideal base for walking in the Cairngorms and perfect if travelling with a dog. The cottage has an enclosed garden and lovely walks just out the back door. Briony and Martin were easy to contact and responsive, and let us check out late which was much appreciated!

The house of Martin and Briony is small but perfect. It's a romantic little cottage with everything you need and spotlessly clean. Everything is brand new! Martin took us to a Badger hide and we saw six of them and also two Pine Marters! WOW! It's a pitty that we had only two nights here because the house and the surrounding is very nice! If you have a dog you can also bring him/her along because the house has a fence around the garden and in the house everything is there to have a perfect holiday for you and your dog. Besides all of the above, Martin and Briony are very friendly hosts!

5 star ratingPerfectly Quaint Cottage for dog lovers Just came back from a lovely two night stay at Sycamore cottage. Fantastic location for you and your dog with walks right on the door step to the river and boat of garten. Lots to do around this area. The cottage itself which has recently been renovated is modern and super clean. Everything has been thought of from the dog box to fresh eggs right from the chicken coop. Lovely hosts that are more than welcoming giving you local information on arrival. Highly recommend!

We had a wonderful week at Briony's Sycamore Cottage, which is beautiful place to stay for two people. Not too small, not too big, just right.

The Cottage is located in a very picturesque place, very quiet with a nice private space outside, equipped with everything and nicely decorated. Good base for trips and the nearby town, Aviemore, has absolutely everything you need.

The weather was perfect and we were enjoying exploring the surrounding area, but still having lazy days here relaxing.

Our week at Sycamore Cottage was wonderful. Briony & Martin had thought of everything and we loved the fresh eggs. Their communication up to our stay was brilliant, even measuring the space in the bedroom to make sure our 7mth old daughter’s travel cot would fit. The location of the cottage is fab and has beautiful views, great seeing the steam train go past. It is a perfect little cottage in a perfect setting and we hope to revisit someday.

An immacuate, well equipped, comfortable and cosy cottage in a stunning area. Briony was a fantastic host and very quick to respond to any queries before we arrived.

The kitchen has everything you could need and has been done beautifully. The sitting area has a comfy sofa, large TV which has good reception and options to log on to streaming apps (Netflix etc). The WiFi was very fast. The bathroom is small but perfectly formed. The bedroom had a very large and comfortable bed.

We hope to return one day.

From the minute we opened the cottage door we felt at home. Briony and Martin have thought of everything and clearly their labour of love has resulted in the cosiest, prettiest, little cottage. If we could have given 6 stars we would have. The gorgeous kitchen is fully equipped, with a very comfortable sitting area and wood burning stove, all open plan; the bathroom and the bedroom are so well laid out with plenty of storage for all clothes etc. ( I particularly loved the high bed). The attention to detail throughout the cottage was exceptional. Everything is in pristine condition and the cottage sparkling clean. Outside is a little garden and sitting area, perfect for chillin after a busy day. In summary from arrival to departure Briony and Martin were perfect hosts and their cottage a perfect destination

5 star rating“Great Escape” The cottage is set in beautiful countryside with a lovely river walk only a few yards or metres from the front door. Mountains, pubs, shops and restaurants are all a short drive or longer walk away. The cottage itself is well equipped, very pretty and most comfortable. It is a perfect hideaway for those who want some peace and quiet. The wooden framed bed is a work of art! Martin and Briony were lovely hosts and we wanted for nothing. I could not recommend Sycamore Cottage highly enough!
