“Lovely Rural Cottage”
Reviewed 20 October 2015 for a stay in October 2015

What a great place and great value! We stayed there for 2 nights enjoying the wonderful scenery and the escape to the countryside. Exactly what we were looking for. The owner Ishbel was very friendly, helping with everything we needed before and during our stay! Would highly recommend and definitely stay again.

“Great location-like my school report, could do better”
Reviewed 18 October 2015 for a stay in October 2015

You have to have an open mind and accept the location/peacefulness is great, but it lacks certain facilities which are basic in other rentals? no dishwasher/internet/upstairs WC. If you are happy to miss these, then this is the place for you!!
It is not helped by the fact that the 2 closest pubs/restaurants are closed. Great for a family with school age children and pets.

“Perfect peaceful escape...bliss!”
Reviewed 21 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

We stayed at Craigiedows for two nights with our two dogs. Directions were good and first impression of the cottage was very cute and welcoming with a lovely garden which was secure enough not to have to watch the terrier every second! The cottage was warm and cosy and the lack of phone signal or WiFi was brilliant as we wanted time out from our various businesses (there is a landline should you need it!) There was a good 4-5km walk round the forestry on the doorstep and the good hot shower was very welcome after our 4 hour walk from Tarland!
The relevant instructions were clear and easy to follow with nice communication from the owner. Will definitely be back!!

“Lovely little cottage”
Reviewed 12 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

The cottage was lovely with a nice homely feel to it. It is situated way out in the country with beautiful views and ideal for a nice relaxing country getaway. Will definitely be returning there.

Fantastic Cottage is fully equiped with everything you need. Woodburing stove with plenty of wood, even has oil central heating. Very clean and comfy beds.
Great base for hill walking, skiing or just recharging your battiers. There is even a forest walk for your 4 legged pets. Will diffinlty be booking again. Highly rcommend Craigiedows Cottage
