We had a fantastic stay on the Alvie Estate in October. The location, views, wildlife and the cottage were fantastic. Although the estate is conveniently located near Aviemore, we felt like we were out in the hills. It was a perfect escape. We'd definitely recommend a stay at Mid Delfour, and the picnic bench is ideal for enjoying the amazing food from Alvie Forest Foods. We'll definitely be back!
We had a brilliant week at Alive House North Wing. The house is spacious, comfortable and well equipped. The location is great. It's very quiet and peaceful, plus you're so close to Aviemore, Loch Insh, the Highland Wildlife Park and other attractions. Brilliant to see red squirrels on the doorstep! Highly recommend.
We are just back from a short stay at Easter Delfour. The cottage has been very tastefully decorated with so many of the original features remaining. So many properties have had all their character modernised out of them and it was wonderful to stay somewhere which retained so much of the past.
The location is perfect for seeing the Cairngorms, and we very much enjoyed the peaceful location and the access to walks in the local area. We will definitely be back again.
We had a fabulous time at Alvie House, set in beautiful grounds. We were in the top floor flat, which everyone loved. Well set out accommodation, and we loved having meals around the massive dining table. We visited Thor the cow and Alesha the sheep, rowed on the wee lichen, had amazing food from the Alvie food van, and enjoyed quad biking on the estate, which must have the most picturesque route in the country. Loved every minute and definitely planning to come back.
We have stayed in no. 4 West Dalfour for three successive years - just the two of us and our collie. It's a perfect place to stay. The cottage may be a little shabby, but it's comfortable, warm, and welcoming. It's a wonderfully peaceful place, with beautiful views and surrounded by cattle, sheep, horses, and deer. We spend most of our time walking in the Cairngorms and Monadhliath hills, but there are some splendid walks behind the cottage suitable for the rest days. The Wi-Fi works well, and the mobile phone signal was fine.
