Customer Reviews of Ordie Cottage, nr Aboyne - Sleeps 2-4

"small but cosy"

very nice place to stay for visiting scotland especially close to all amenities and for touring the east highlands.Good assistance from our host,and the bird feeders and chickens made it a charming place. Would stay there again in the future

"Pleasant accommodation set in magnificent scenery"

The house is ideally situated in the middle of magnificent Royal Deeside countryside. The proprieters were friendly and happy to store our bicycles under cover. The facilities were all we needed for a low-budget, self-catering holiday in a quiet location. Although the house is generally well-appointed and clean, the grey-coloured bathroom sanitaryware needs updating. The lounge/diner would benefit from the high hedge opposite the patio doors being lowered to let in more light. The friendly pet chickens and sheep in the fields beyond were especially endearing.

"restful"

A quiet situation, but not remote from facilites for shopping eating and places of interest. Compact but cosy. The owners (next door) were helpful and friendly but not intrusive - they were there if you needed them!
