Description

Tucked away down a private track near the famous Cock Bridge and Corgarff Castle, this delightful little detached cottage has been lovingly renovated to a very good standard, and is a haven of peace and tranquillity amidst stunning scenery. Stylish, comfortable furnishings, in a blend of contemporary and traditional, complement the character of the cottage, and the surrounding, totally secluded garden is protected by fir trees, making it a real suntrap. The perfect place to enjoy the tranquility of the cottage is in the hot tub which is situated just beside the outside decking area. This hot tub has all the features to make your stay most enjoyable including hydrotherapy foot massage and hydrotherapy shoulder jets - so if you have been out and about exploring the Cairngorms the hot tub is the perfect place to relax and rewind at the end of the day. It is most special at night time when you can gaze up at the stars.
Plenty of wildlife can be seen here in the undisturbed surroundings, ranging from deer to birds of prey, grouse, ptarmigan and mountain hares. The cottage lies in the heart of the Cairngorm National Park, directly on the route to The Lecht, and visitors have a huge range of activities on offer here on one of the highest main roads in the UK. The mountains rise up to 2,700ft, and are ideal for skiing, snowboarding and, in summer, mountain biking; the Lecht Activity Centre has all equipment available for hire, as well as a café and shop. Medieval Corgarff Castle is well worth a visit, and has a turbulent history incorporating whisky smuggling, and another use was as an army garrison in 1746. This is a wonderful area for touring amongst great scenery, and Balmoral Castle, Ballater, Aviemore, Tomintoul and the Whisky Trail are all within an easy drive. Café with free internet access 1 mile. Shops, pubs and restaurants 9 miles.
