    I’ve stayed in lots of self catering cottages over the last few years and this one has been the best so far. The enclosed garden was perfect for the dogs and the house was very clean and modern. I’d definitely go back to this one.

    We had a lovely stay in this cosy cottage. Everything you need is there even a pet tag (which I took home by mistake!) Dropped something that rolled under the bed - needs a little vacuum! Lovely soft furry throws but need a wash as a bit smelly!

    We had a great week at Thistledown Cottage. Myself, husband 2 children and our Black Lab felt really comfortable. The cottage is cosy and is very well equipped. It’s a lovely walk into the centre of Aviemore and also has lovely trail walks near to the house. We also ran a good bit using the same routes. There’s also a Parkrun on a Saturday morning not far either. We would highly recommend this cottage.

    The cottage was in an excellent location. Lots of walks outside the cottage. Very peaceful location. The only downside was that there was no freezer in the property. The shower power was not the best.

    Thistledown Cottage was beautifully decorated with a Scottish twist that made it very cosy and atmospheric for a holiday in the Cairngorms. It is also ideally placed for lots of beautiful walks in and around Aviemore to appreciate the beauty of this Highland landscape. Also a good base for visiting historic sites in the area. The cottage kitchen was very well equipped and the only thing we missed was a third saucepan. The big "pot" was a little large for the two of us when doing veg. but that's just a minor point. The cottage also had lots of instruction booklets, but it did take us awhile to work out that we had to boost hot water for washing up/bathroom sink, so something on that for people unfamiliar with that style of water heater might be useful to include in the future. We also ought to mention that that front door is sticking a bit, but imagine this cottage is so popular it's hard to find time to fit these little jobs in. Only mention these issues to be constructive as they in no way detracted from a wonderful holiday experience in Thistledown.

    Lovely location for daily excursions, cottage clean, very warm and cosy. Plenty of paths to walk doggies right from the doorway. Locals very friendly and helpful. Would be planning our next holiday to the area very soon.

    Very enjoyable and relaxing.
