These two holiday properties stand near to each other in their own grounds, each with their own garden, and enjoy a convenient setting close to the heart of the delightful small market town of Ballater with good shops, hotels, restaurants and golf course near at hand. The Coyles (SOOJ) is a wonderful family house and perfect for larger gatherings, whether enjoying a special birthday or a relaxing get together with friends, with plenty of living space and very good amenities throughout to ensure a memorable and convivial holiday. On two levels, it offers a high standard of comfort throughout and is a great choice at any time of the year. The Coyles Cottage (SBH) is set in a delightful part of the garden and is well equipped throughout with a lovely sunny conservatory, and benefits from triple glazing and central heating throughout, affording year-round comfort. An excellent centre from which to discover the many places of interest nearby; Ballater itself is a lovely base with many links to the Royal family and historic castles nearby include Balmoral, Crathies and Craigievar. The Grampians offer wonderful hill walking and wildlife, and the surrounding area of Deeside is a haven for outdoor enthusiasts. Leisurely walks abound on the banks of the River Dee or alternatively tackle some of the Monros and other mountains in the Cairngorms - a short drive away via some majestic scenery. Skiing is 35 minutes’ drive going through parts of the Whisky Trail, and canoeing and mountain biking are also readily available throughout the region. Shops and pub 100 yards.

Customer Reviews of The Coyles, Ballater - Sleeps 9

1st comment: The Coyles is exceptionally comfortable and warm, clean and well maintained, very spacious (3 lounges!), has excellent facilities and equipment, and a large area of off-road parking. It’s dog-friendly with a fully fenced garden. Ballater is well equipped with high quality shops within 5 minutes walk of the Coyles (baker, butcher, grocer, hardware, outdoor, books, Co-op). There are several good restaurants and bars where we enjoyed a whisky and beer tasting festival one evening. There are too many places to visit and activities to do in a week, whether you like walking, castles, trains, golf, fishing, cycling (and more). The autumn fungus forays were some of the best we’ve been on. The Coyles is highly recommended, it reads well in the brochure and is even better on arrival. We’ll be back if others haven’t booked up first. Oct 2011.

2nd comment: Would recommend this property, it was first class. Oct 2011.

3rd comment: Excellent position, wonderful accommodation for a family gathering! Sept 2011.

4th comment: It had every facility for our party of 8, ranging in ages from 9 to 70. Plenty of room for everyone to do their own thing. A lovely property. June 2011.

5th comment: A convenient location with plenty of space and character. Feb 2011.

6th comment: The Coyles is a lovely family home with a warm feel to it. We were a party of nine family members and we all enjoyed staying there very much. Nov 2010.

7th comment: The Coyles is a beautiful house that has absolutely everything you need and more. The accommodation is in excellent condition, presented well and is very clean. The house is perfect for a larger family gathering, allowing the family to spend time together and has enough room for time alone. My family and I spent Christmas 2009 at the Coyles and had a great time. The house has a magical festive feel brought alive by the open fire. Dec 2009.
