We enjoyed our stay in the wing of Alvie house very much. The area of Kincraig is so beautiful. We had a family get together and others stayed in the top flat. The house was warm with lots of hot water and a lovely new bath/shower room had been recently fitted. On dull days the log fire was cosy with lots of dry logs to use. We didn't want to go home.
My Great Grandfather was the Manager at Home Farm for more than 40 years and my Grandfather worked on the farm for more than 20, so I was really looking forward to a trip to the Estate as part of a bigger trip to Scotland (we live in Australia now) with my children and other family members. We stayed at Park Cottage which was in a beautiful location, very spacious and cosy with a fireplace. The kitchen had everything we might have needed. I can thoroughly recommend the cottage to others.
Alvie House top flat is situated in a beautiful location and has a proper old country house feel to it with old fashioned but comfortable furniture and fittings.
The rooms are all spacious with comfortable clean beds and easily sleeps 10 adults
Wester Delfour 4 has been our place to stay in the Highlands for about 6 times over the last 13 years. We feel quite at home there, that's why we keep coming back( and will do at our next vacation in Scotland) . The Alvie staff is always friendly and willing to assist if needed. We love the view over the mountains and the animale in the paddocks from the windows. The estate and nearby town Aviemore are in the middel of the Highlands and it is easy to acces a large part of Scotland by car. In the last couple of years there were some attractions added to Alvie, such as Zipwire and Segway tours....more
We booked 1 Wester Delfour at the last minute. Two of us had been before with family over one New Year in the past.
Very welcoming, clean and very cosy, the only problem was there was not a lot of or confusing information in regards to the heating, there appeared to be three different systems! We all felt that needed to be rectified to avoid confusion, the wood burner was fab though! Other than that, the cottage was very well equipped, in a really lovely peaceful and quiet location. .
Were visited by two frogs in the property, they were so tiny!
Just be aware that at the present time, there...more
