“Cosy family retreat, like home from home.”
Reviewed 4 April 2015 for a stay in March 2015

We arrived and it was snowing, it was toasty and warm in Carrick house and the fire was laid with a full hod of coal ready; a lovely welcome. We enjoyed spending every evening relaxing in front of the open fire ( no prob with sofa, I am 6'4"). Plenty of room for our 2 year old to play and explore. The travel cot, with proper mattress, and high chair were up and ready to use. We had no problems with any of the appliances, all easy to use and adjusted the heating according using the simple timer. We used the washing machine a few times too. The table extension kit under the stairs would have come in handy if we were to have a large dinner party. We did not need to contact the housekeeper during our stay. Good wifi signal throughout house, watched iplayer on iPad no problem. Fantastic location round the corner from butchers, paper shop, bank, pubs, deli, coop, park, golf course, train station plus other gift type shops: we enjoyed skiing, walking, highland folk museum, wildlife park, strathspey steam railway, cairngorm brewery, inch marshes, inchraich nursery. We will definitely back.

“Relaxing and comfortable stay with a homely atmosphere”
Reviewed 9 February 2015 for a stay in December 2014

I do feel that I should respond to the last review. My family and I had a very enjoyable stay at Carrick House in December when the weather was cold and deep snow. The heating controls we found easy to use and should we have experienced any difficulty we had the housekeepers details easily at hand. Not many self caterers offer access to coal in the shed. Beds are very comfortable and a high standard of cleanliness. The kitchen is well equipped and we had no problems with the dishwasher - did the last reviewers make any contact with the owner or housekeeper to give them the opportunity to rectify the problem? This is not the first stay at Carrick House and will not be the last. If you want a
house with character and to feel at home in a wonderful breathtaking landscape then this is the ideal house for you.

We stayed at this house over Christmas and I would advise anyone who was thinking of booking to think again. The house is very dated. The central heating wasn't working properly, the dining room table looked as if it was an old door. It still had hinges on the bottom. The dish washer wasn't working either. The furniture in the living room was very dated. I think it was made for midgets. We had to put pillows on them so we didn't feel the springs. All in all we paid double the normal price for the Christmas holidays but think it was very unsatisfactory.
