What our customers are saying about our Staycation Cottages In Ballater To Rent.

John - verified booking

"The Knock is an extremely spacious cottage on the Mar Estate, in the remote hamlet of Inverey. You have 5 toilets and three showers and at least of two of the latter were strong and hot - very much welcome! There were only 5 of us, which actually made the place seem a bit empty, with the cavernous kitchen feeling positively hollow even when we were all in it. The beds were OK, neither especially good or bad. We fired up the stove in the lounge but it never seemed to throw out much heat, which would have been welcome given the sub-zero temperatures outside. The DVD player is duff. The electric heaters kept the rooms at a decent temperature despite the yard-long icicles forming outside, but the kitchen and some of the other rooms were often on the cool side. The internal furnishings are of a adequate, though not of a high standard and some small touches would have made all the difference. For example, there was no salt, pepper, cooking oil or washing powder on the property, so we had to buy it all. Inevitably you use a tiny fraction in a week and you end up leaving it behind, as well as the inconvenience of having to go out and get it in the first place. Easy to fix. It very much feels like a working rather than a luxury cottage. Whilst the important bits were clean when we arrived, germophobes won't appreciate the carpet in one of the ensuite bathrooms.It turns out that there is a cottage guide folder, but as it was tucked away on the book shelves next to sofa, I only found it near the end of our stay. It would be nice if it was a bit more comprehensive.Be aware that you're unlikely to get any mobile phone reception or data in the cottage, and we were unfortunate enough to lose the broadband on our second day. Exceptional weather conditions meant that the OpenReach guy didn't manage to get out to fix it. Obviously this shouldn't be something that everyone experiences, but bear in mind that the property's internet is pedestrian at best - you can forget streaming films or listening to music. We very much had an old-school time of it, and that was OK, if somewhat inconvenient for checking weather and avalanche forecasts. I certainly wouldn't plan to do any work there. There are cafes with free WiFi and 4G in Braemar, which is a 10 minute drive.Inverey is quite remote, so if you're going there in winter, like we did, a 4x4 is strongly recommended. Estate employees plough up and down the road regularly, but there's only so much they can do, and you'll appreciate the extra traction. Also be aware that the Cairnwell pass (one of two roads that connect Braemar to the outside world) is often closed in heavy snow, and driving the eastern way adds at least 90 minutes onto your journey if you're going South.There were masses of deer around, so keep your dog under control and take some tick removers if you're going in the warmer seasons. We had fairly limited interaction with the caretaker/estate staff, but they were warm, friendly and helpful when we did, if occasionally somewhat hard to contact because of the lack of mobile signal.Overall I'd give The Knock a solid 7/10 for walkers/MTBers who want access to the central and southern Cairngorm Munros, those who are doing shooting or fishing or folk who want to get away from it all . I wouldn't recommend it as a base for exploring the tourist attractions of this part of Scotland, because a.) there aren't that many and b.) you're going to have a lengthy drive for many of them.In our experience it was a quiet and peaceful place where those who are happy to entertain themselves will feel content. I would stay there again if I had a larger party and would go there forewarned."

"My partner and I have just returned from a long weekend break in Ballater staying in Westwood. Westwood is a beautifully finished cottage set right in the heart of Ballater. There is off street parking and we did not need to move the car from the driveway at all during the weekend. The cottage itself is freshly decorated with an open plan layout. Downstairs is large with the lounge, kitchen and dining space open plan. The kitchen is appeared newly installed and has all the facilities you would need. Upstairs are two large bedrooms with great storage and a very modern bathroom. Towels are provided. The rear garden is fully enclosed so great for children or dogs. The owners should be credited for creating such a wonderful home from home. Locally we enjoyed many walks, a Chinese takeaway, Indian and got takeaway pizzas from the Alexandra Hotel just at the end of the road. On each night we also drank in the Deeside Inn which was warm and welcoming. We would also highly recommend the Bothy and Rock Salt has Snails where we had lunches. Rock Salt and Snails is again, just at the end of the road; a lovely café with great food. We will certainly return to Ballater and to Westwood.The open plan layout is great. You will not be disappointed if you stay in Westwood.Westwood has everything you may need to make your stay most comfortable. It was immaculately clean & obvious from the quality fittings, the recent renovation is of the highest standard. The enclosed garden was a bonus & perfect for dog owners. We loved the downstairs open plan which wasn’t clear from the listing, but a definite plus. Ballater and the entire area is breathtaking. It’s easy to see why the Royals make this their Scotland home. Forest trails are plentiful near by and the town is full of cafes, tasteful quaint gift shops and a royal approved baker & butcher. Would absolutely recommend & can’t wait to go back!!All home comforts included plus extras. Nice to have tea, milk and biscuits when we got there, and all the little things like kids bowls cups made the holiday very easy! Thanks for a great week."

"Our family had a wonderful holiday in this beautiful house. The layout, comfort and beauty within, truly enabled a feeling of togetherness for us all. My father particularly liked his stunning en suite room, whilst my favourite was the open plan kitchen/lounge (felt distinctly 2 rooms too - amazing) The decor is very tasteful and the owners have thought of every little thing to make a difference to your holiday. Absolutely everything you could possibly need within a holiday home kitchen and separate utility room is there. You will never be bored in Ballater, with an abundance of walks/cycle trails on doorstep, cafes, restaurants, couple of pubs etc. If you’re a group of up to 8, looking for a holiday house in Ballater, I honestly wouldn’t look beyond this one. It was everything we hoped for and more and we’ve been visiting Ballater for many many years. We were a family of 8 with maximum of 6 staying at any one time. We were so so lucky to get this New Year cancellation week - it was very special for us and meant to be. Sincere thanks to the owners for sharing their lovely holiday house with those of us wise enough to book it."
