Refurbished in 2018 to a high standard, Sycamore Cottage provides cosy accommodation for single people or couples looking for a relaxed break in idyllic surroundings, or for those who want to take advantage of the many opportunities for outdoor recreation. The cottage is in a sheltered location with wonderful views overlooking the River Spey and Strathspey Steam Railway track with the Cairngorm mountains in the background. Well behaved dogs are welcome by arrangement.

In the grounds of the owners’ house, but with separate access and parking, Sycamore Cottage stands beside the tree after which it is named, which is over 100 years old. The cottage is about 50 years old, but has been recently refurbished to a high standard. Use has been made throughout of locally sourced wood, which has been oiled to provide a natural look. There is storage for skis/fishing rods outside and a covered porch for bikes.

The cottage is fully centrally heated, with double glazing throughout, and also has a wood-burning stove. The cosy open-plan living area is furnished with a sofa and easy chair, and has a 43” smart TV with Freesat. The well-equipped kitchen area has solid oak worktops, electric cooker, fridge/freezer, microwave etc. There is also a washing machine / dryer. A welcome hamper containing local produce and a bottle of wine can be provided on request.

An archway leads through to the bedroom, which boasts a hand-crafted king-size bed and an en-suite shower room. The feature bed has a headboard made from locally sourced Sycamore wood, and is higher than average to allow views, through the windows, of the trees and hills around the cottage.

There is an outside seating area with table and chairs and a handcrafted stool with boot storage and hooks for wet coat storage.

Please note car parking is approximately 40 metres from the cottage, but we are happy to help carry bags and luggage on arrival and departure.

The self contained garden contains a clothes dryer and pegs are provided.

There is free wifi throughout. Mobile coverage is OK on most networks.
