Customer Reviews of Granville Cottage in Ballater - Sleeps 8

The property was situated well within walking distance of shops and restaurants etc. It was just off a main route making it easy to get about. It was an impressive property with nice big rooms.

We had a wonderful, relaxing family holiday in this fabulous house. The house is central to all amenities in Ballater and close to many places of interest. The scenery is spectacular and it was lovely taking an early morning walk along the River Dee.
Mrs Chadwick, Wiltshire

The house was very large and even with 6 adults there was loads of space. The house overall was fantastic, and set in a very peaceful neighbourhood. It was in an ideal location for travelling on days out.
