An excellent location for wildlife watching with Red Squirrels in the garden daily, up to 5 individuals and several bird species; including Jays, Coal Tits, Siskins and a Sparrowhawk. Very quiet and pretty surrounded by Pines and Larch trees.
Well situated for exploring the local area with Aviemore and Cairngorm only about 20 - 30 mins drive away.
The house itself was comfortable and once the storage heaters got going was nicely warm; the shower was adequate but the temperature went up and down which wasn't ideal.
The kitchen was well stocked, the only downside being very old and worn frying pans which need replacing.
In summary, the location for us was the selling point, being on the edge of some woodland and with a lovely wild garden with unkempt grass etc. something i adore.
So glad you enjoyed the unique surroundings of Porch House, it is indeed a very special place. The red squirrels can keep you captivated for hours!
Your house keeping issues have been noted and passed on for action
I look forward to welcoming you back in the future
Fantastic holiday home
Absolutely loved this house. Charming house, well equipped, location was exactly what we were looking for. kind of in the middle of nowhere but only a short drive from Kingussie where the Co Op met all our shopping needs, we cooked and ate at the house for the most part. Walks from right outside the house in every direction. Our favorite was accessed at the bridge onto the RSPB marshes right beside a roaring piece of river...beautiful!
So glad you enjoyed Porch House. It is really a very special place and you obviously appreciated its unique setting, peace and quiet but not too isolated.
I look forward to welcoming you back again soon
Holiday at Porch House
The property was very comfortable and well located. The instructions to find it were not very clear. It took us some time to find it. The bridge wasn't named, even on Google maps, and the distillery sign was not obvious. The road to the property was very uneven, we had to drive very slowly to avoid the ruts and stones and were quite worried about the car grounding on it.
However, we thoroughly enjoyed the location, with walks in several directions and the fact that birds, squirrels etc were easy to see from the large windows.. The RSPB hides were numerous and well used.
The cottage was very spacious and was very well equipped.
There were several local shops for food etc. and it was well located for several attractions.
Just one thing we have never come across before and have stayed in several cottages over the years, was the fact that we were charged a £200 deposit to cover electricity use and breakages. This has always been included in the price, which was not cheap! In fact, several cottages we have stayed in have had welcome packs, one including a bottle of wine and chocolates, another a large bunch of flowers.
Ruim en heerlijk rustig huisje in de natuur.
Ruim huisje, heerlijk rustige omgeving. Vanuit het huisje ook wel wat wandelingen te doen. Toch lekker dichtbij het stadje vior de boodschappen en als cadeautje de prachtige barakken. Goede uitvalsbasis voor het verkennen vande hooglanden.
Spacious house, wonderfully peaceful environment. From the cottage also do some walks. Still nice and close to the town of Kingussie for groceries and as a gift the beautiful barracks. Good base for exploring the highlands.
Another happy guest
Quiet and comfortable house
Liked the secluded and quiet location and seeing the birds around the feeders every morning. Ideal location for walks and getting the train to different locations. The house was a little cold when we arrived and took a while to get warm but apart from that no complaints. Beds were comfortable too and the kitchen was well equipped. Would stay there again.
Thanks for taking the time to leave a positive review..its much appreciated
Apologies that you found the cottage chilly on arrival, the storage heaters warm up over night and may have been set low by previous guests. I am glad it did not stop you enjoying your time at Porch House
I hope to welcome you back again soon
Really enjoyed staying at Porch House. We chose it because of the rural location and the opportunities to see Speyside wildlife in the garden and we were not disappointed. We were particularly pleased that the owner does not feel the need to mow all the grass on the property. The house is also well-placed for access to local nature reserves (Tromie meadow just round the corner is a super spot and Insh Marshes not much further) as well as the more famous sites like Loch Garten and Rothiemurchus to the north. On the whole the facilities in the house met our expectations. If I was to point out one thing for improvement it would be the rather slow refill of the toilet cistern. With only three of us in the house it was not a major issue, but for a larger party it could prove more so. However, this did not significantly affect what was an enjoyable experience overall.
Michael many thanks for positive review
I am so glad you enjoyed your time at Porch House and the local sites lived up to expectation
Your comment re toilet cistern is noted, and I am glad to say I have finally managed to get a plumber booked for this week [they are like gold dust up here] so hopefully will soon be sorted
Look forward to you returning soon
