“It was a very nice and clean accommodation with a very friendly host.  We could use the garden, the playground, the grill and more.  It was perfect!”

“Perfect holiday cottages in Crathie.  Especially good for families.”
Ludwig, October 2018


“The cottage was really fantastic, loads of space and a really lovely garden shared by the cottages that back on to the river, it was so peaceful!  Being walking distance – a few 100 meters on a private, clearly defined pathway next to the river to the entrance of Balmoral Castle was wonderful and Maggie was very welcoming, helpful and so lovely.  I would definitely come back again.”
