6 of us stayed at Dell Lodge last weekend to celebrate a family birthday in nearby Grantown on Spey. We had a very warm welcome from Donna as Polly and family were away themselves . We loved looking at all the quirky things in the house especially the gong in the kitchen and the record player and vinyls in the... More

Just returned from a stay in West Dell, and really cannot recommend it enough. The setting is PERFECT. Next to the forest, with plenty of walks right on the doorstep. Wonderful grounds lit by lanterns, a zip wire, a fire pit, swings, hammocks in the trees. Absolutely amazing. The accommodation itself was well equipped, 6 adults stayed comfortably and we... More

First time we've stayed here but certainly won't be the last. We stayed in East Dell and while smaller than it might look in the photographs it was a fantastic place to stay. All rooms were beautifully presented and very clean and comfortable. Polly was on hand to greet us and show us what was where. Little touches like chocolate... More

This was our third time staying at the Dell of Abernethy. The cottage, (we stayed in Little Dell), was perfect; welcoming, well-equipped with everything you'd need, and with a real cosy character. Sitting outside we were able to watch the resident red squirrels and spotted loads of wildlife in the woods around the Dell, including deer. The location is also... More

We had a family gathering here for my dad's 80th. The accommodation was just perfect. We had 26 friends and family using the various cottages and the lodge. It was clean and extremely comfortable and everyone loved the beautiful shabby chic style. The bathrooms in the lodge were amazing. For self catering the Lodge and cottages are extremely well stocked... More

I am utterly shocked to see there are any reviews that are less than excellent - and I don't say that lightly, I'm usually known for being quite typically British and finding fault in everything! We stayed in Near Dell in 2014 with some extended family, it was small but cozy and never felt *too* small. When we arrived there... More
