We spent a few days at Easter Delfour. The accomodation was as we hoped, once we had mastered keeping the wood pellet burner topped up with pellets. The view is great with small birds, ponies and cows to see nearby. We did not do any of the activities on offer due to the short stay.
We had a pleasant stay at the Park Cottage. The cottage is a really old but beautiful building. We were with 4 adults and one 14 year old, but there was plenty of place in the cottage. The only thing was the shower.....

Everyone was too warm in bed even with windows wide open.
Shame tennis courts almost unplayable, although there was some racquet action by the die hard players.
We had an ace time and will visit again.

The rooms are all a good size, it just took a while for my tall husband to get used to ducking through the doorways and at the stairs! I w...more
Lovely quiet cottage with stunning views to the Cairngorms, comfortable and clean. Estate staff were very good, available if needed, approachable and helpful. Great location to either do lots of activities or just enjoy the peace of the cottage. We intend to return!
