Alvie estate is beautiful and Mid Delfour cottage has fabulous views from the garden to the Cairngorms. It is very peaceful - not near to other cottages. The cottage is immaculate and comfortable. There was an issue with the heating but it was dealt with very well by Alvie Estate and we received a bit of a refund which more than adequately compensated for it.
We who stayed in the North Wing loved the place, it was full of character and charm but also very practical for our groups needs.
There was a large well equipped kitchen, a separate dining area and a comfortable lounge with an open fire making it very cosy on the cold January evenings. The central heating was super efficient and there was abundant hot water, essential after a hard day in the mountains. The beds were very comfortable and everything was very clean. All the staff were very helpful and we had a great week. We all liked the place so much and there is still so much to do in the ar...more
This cottage had everything we needed. A great location, ample parking, the cottage itself was very clean and homely. There was a big well equipped kitchen, a lovely cosy sitting room with open fire, logs provided, and comfortable beds. It was well heated and lots of hot water, essential when coming back from the mountains cold and wet. There was lots to do on the estate including walks directly from the cottage. All the staff were very friendly and welcoming. We all loved the place and hope to return in the future.
The cottage is in an excellent location with easy access to surrounding towns and attractions. The cottage is very cosy and comfortable with a well equipped kitchen. The heating system took a while to get the hang of to make sure that the cottage was kept warm as without it was freezing! Good for a family with smaller children and watch your head if you are tall when upstairs! Highly recommend the zip line experience and horse riding on the estate.
Alvie House is very old fashioned and lacks some of the facilities associated with more modern properties, such as showers, and extra bathrooms. But rooms are spacious, and the accommodation is full of character. We found the kitchen equipment a little lacking (potato peeler, fish slice to name a few), but we managed to cook well for 10 people. There was a problem with the hot water supply, and this was mitigated quickly.
When arriving or leaving in darkness, we needed an outside light at the main entrance, which was a serious omission.
The location of the property is excellent - although ...more
