    Milton of Delliefure reviews
    We like peace and quiet and cottage was nice and quiet. I would recommend it
    Mr Morris - August 2018
    The location is tranquil and enjoys lovely far reaching views. The cottage is well equipped with the exception of outdoor furniture which consisted only of two plastic chairs. The cottage was looking a bit tired in parts and comments in the visitor book suggest that customer care might not be as good as it has been in the past. An unusual omission was the lack of any manual or folder containing essential/useful information for visitors. There was some information on a notice board in the kitchen including out of date recycling info., otherwise we had to rely on the visitor book or sort it out for ourselves. Not a problem for us but might be off-putting for guests less familiar with self catering in remote areas. Whilst by no means unique to this property, we fail to see why a cottage described as dog friendly charges £20 more per week for a couple with one dog than it does for a family of six! We trust our remarks will be taken as constructive.
    Mr Shaw - June 2018
    We had a fabulous stay at Milton of Delliefure. The location is amazing, extensive grounds with views over the valley to the Spey. We saw deer down there, but in the garden from the conservatory we saw hares, oystercatchers, rabbits, every kind of garden bird including woodpeckers, but best of all, we saw red squirrels! Every day they came quite boldly and ate peanuts from the feeders. The cottage is quite isolated, but it is only three miles from Grantown on Spey, very handy to pop in to the shops, and we went twice to a fabulous restaurant, No.7 Bistro, which we can recommend. We visited Brodie Castle, Ballandalloch Castle and Grant Castle, and can recommend all three. Now for the reason I gave it only four stars: unfortunately we found the beds very hard. We swapped from the double to the twin beds in hope of an improvement, but these were equally uncomfortable with a broken spring in one of them. A temporary measure perhaps could be some mattress toppers to give some depth and softness to the very hard surface. Also the curtains in the bedroom need some attention, so they can be closed properly. Otherwise we found the cottage extremely well appointed, and we would love to visit again, (providing the beds get some attention!)
    Mrs Holmes - May 2018
    Beautiful setting and area. Cottage was comfortable although in need of some external and internal redecoration. Lovely variety of wildlife in the garden but viewing and photography severely adversely affected by nearly every double glazing panel in the sun room having seals broken allowing intra-glazing condensation and misting. As we booked specifically to enjoy a wildlife holiday and this cottage advertised wildlife in the garden, this was a particular disappointment.
    Mrs Shields - May 2018
    spacious living space large kitchen all kitted out great view
    Mr Brown - December 2017
    Lovely cottage, spacious downstairs and obviously improved since site photos were taken. Lovely grounds with great views. God base for exploring region. Would definitely return.
    Mrs Rowan - August 2017
    We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this house. It is ideal for a week away in a beautiful part of Scotland. We found the cottage to be fully equipped and cosy. Lovely big garden to play in was a bonus. This area has loads of walks and activities to do. Would recommend to everyone to visit this area and house.
    Mrs Milroy - July 2017
    The cottage is ideally place, in a peaceful quiet location but only 5 minutes by car from the village. The sunroom is a wonderful room to sit and enjoy the open views. It also has a large living room and a separate dining room. It is well equipped, clean and tidy. There is a large flat garden area.
    Ms Rintoul - April 2017
    We had a lovely time skiing in the Lecht. We stayed at this cottage for a week in February. It was quite cold the first two days until the raidiators heated the place up. There was a limited supply of hot water. Apart from the old fashion heating it's a beautiful cottage in a beautiful location, the views are breathtaking. It's in a very convinient location, near shops and attractions.
    Miss Lockett - February 2016
    Cosy cottage in a wonderful rural location, surrounded by great scenery and wildlife. The best scones and service can be found at The High Street Merchants in Grantown on Spey.
    Mrs Havill - October 2015
    The location of the property was excellent and the surrounding countryside was beautiful. There were many places of interest to visit to suit all tastes - and weathers. The cottage was spacious and warm but definitely in need of some tlc. There were extensive water marks on the ceilings, a lack of carpet joining strips at the entrance to each bedroom and a number of dead flies on the windowsills, particularly in the kitchen. Several lightbulbs needed replacing and we were told this would be done on the Monday but this did not happen. The large hall was an asset but there were no coat hooks in it and no hooks on bedroom or bathroom doors, which was slightly inconvenient. We have stayed in several properties through your company, all of a high standard, which made this one disappointing. Some redecoration and thorough cleaning would soon bring this back up to standard and then it would be delightful.
    Owners Response: "Thank you for the feedback. This is the first time we have had negative feedback so we are very sorry to hear you were disappointed. We will follow up with the caretaker in relation to the lightbulbs and the flies. The cottage is well equipped and comfortable and everything is in good working order but we acknowledge there are a few areas where it needs a bit of “TLC” as you say, although these are cosmetic rather than substantive. We will aim to address these during 2016. We haven’t increased the rental price on the cottage since 2010 so at the very least we hope it still represents good value for money. Thanks again."
    Mr Dawe - October 2015
    Lovely little cottage, perfect for me, my partner and our 2 year old granddaughter as well as our dog and cat. We were looking for somewhere out of the way and this fit the bill. having said that, we were only a few miles from the lively town of grantown on spey which had all the amenities we could need. the cottage itself had everything we needed, including extra linens and lots of equipment and utensils for the kitchen. an added bonus was the bed rail, chair etc they had for our granddaughter. Made life a lot easier. highly recommend this cottage and hope to return soon.
    Miss Bolden - July 2015
    We wished the Internet worked.other than that we enjoy your lovely cottage very beautiful view,lots of space very clean.we had everything we need. Thank you.
    Mr & Mrs Swan - June 2015
    It is really nice, quiet location and a cottage itself is very well equipped for family holiday. We spent there one week in Aug 2014 and were literally satisfied. We can recommend this place for family with kids or pet, countryside lovers, walkers etc. in close neighborhood you can visit some distilleries, castles (e.g Ballindalloch) or the Cairngorm Mountains.
    Mr Honcik - August 2014
    very well equipped house, in a wonderful location. Large garden and great views from the house
    Mr Masseron - July 2014
    The cottage is located along the river Spey valley with beautiful views of the surrounding hillside and countryside. There are lovely river and woodland walks and cycle tracks accessible from the house which are family and dog friendly. The wildlife is in abundance with deer, pheasants and hare regularly in the garden area. There is so much to do outdoors and very suited to those who walk, cycle and/or ski. Equally in a short drive to Grantown and Aviemore there are all the usual undercover activities. The only problem is fitting it all into a weeks break! We managed many safe family hill walks and cycles and look forward to the more adventurous munros and cycle tracks when the children are older.
    Mrs Sutcliffe - July 2014
    This is a modernised cottage with facilities exactly as described in the Castles and Cottages publicity material. The surroundings are beautiful and quiet with a view across the Spey valley. We saw foxes, red squirrel and a host of bird species. The cottage is less than an hour's journey to the Moray Firth, to Aviemore and the Cairngorms, and to the Highlands capital Inverness. Grantown is a lovely little town with all the necessary shops and a petrol station, and we can heartily recommend the restaurant in nearby Archiestown..
    Dr Hartley - July 2013
    Great house - well equipped - just what we needed for out weeks fishing on the Spey
    Mr Moncur - May 2013
    A wonderfull place to stay if your looking for somewhere peacefull where the only neighbours are the sheep. That said the local town is only 15mins drive away and offers a good range of shops,resturants & take aways. A beautifull place to visit is Loch en eilien. There's a lovely small gallery on the edge of the Loch it's self, housed in an old bothy and a pottery just up the lane, both are worth a visit and offer a warm welcome. 2 miles up the road from the Loch is a small garden center that has the most magical cafe called 'THE POTTING SHED' the lady there makes the most fantastic cakes, and they have the best bird/red squirel feeding area we've ever experienced! The wildlife at the cottage it's self was a little lacking but we bought (and left there) a hole range of feeders which we kept filled & we soon had plenty to see. We just hope other visiters will keep them filled so that the wildlife remains for everyone to enjoy!! The cottage is much bigger than we imagined it would be and the open fire was a joy! The garden is huge and well fenced altough not really dog proof. All in all we had a good holiday & we would definetly recomend it.
    Mrs Hooper - April 2013
    This cottage holiday gave my husband and I exactly what we needed this year - peace and quiet and a place to chill out amongst lovely scenery and wildlife. The cottage itself was well equipped and clean, although we never did get to grips with the shower and my 6ft 4in husband found looking in a mirror needed contortions! The local town of Grantown offers everything you might need, and as a centre for the whisky distilleries you couldn't find better. We put up a peanut feeder in the garden and 2 days later, there were loads of birds. We saw red deer in the next field and red squirrels several times between the cottage and Grantown.
    Mrs Higginbotham - August 2012
    Milton of Delliefure used to be 3 separate cottages but now only one remains. We stayed in the converted barn for several holidays over 30 years ago, so to find the owner's cottage still available for hire made me want to go back in time. The cottage is very well equipped with ample wood for log burning fires in the evening, not to mention central heating as required. Views are spectacular, and there is plenty of wildlife to observe. During a snowfall the roads were cleared very early on so no delay in getting out and about. If you just want to relax this place is utter tranquility, with only birdsong to interrupt the quiet.
    Mrs Marriott-clooney - March 2012
    The cottage was very comfortable and well equipped.
    Mrs Wright - February 2012
    I liked this cottage, which was above average in comfort . It is child friendly but we felt it was ideal for 4 people of our age group (retired!). Plan to return next year!
    Mrs Gilmore - December 2010
