Forest Cottage – A Forest Hideaway Made for Two, Cairngorms
Enjoy a romantic break in this picture-perfect little red-roofed cottage in The Cairngorms National Park. Forest Cottage has been beautifully restored as a cosy forest hideaway for two, with features to make its guests feel completely at home and welcomed into its atmosphere of homely warmth but with all the modern life’s essential luxuries close at hand.
From the front door are glimpses through the forest of pine-clad mountains beyond the loch. You can make your way down through the heather to where the forest opens out and the loch laps against the shore. The sparkling waters reflect the ever-changing Highland skies, framing a truly incredible view in any weather. The lonely loch island with its ghostly ruined castle sits before you, and the forested slopes of the mountains fade into the distance beyond.
The interiors reflect both the warm earthy colours of the forest and the vintage, natural fabrics and simple, solid furnishings that have all been part of this lovely little cottage over the centuries.
A traditional wooden porch leads into the double height living room, with its window seat, handsome stone hearth and wood burning stove, sure to warm you up after a day of adventures on the hills or lochs. Behind this lies the kitchen, fitted with all the luxury appliances you could wish for in modern self-catering accommodation – and some you wouldn’t, like its wonderful little wine fridge.
Also on the ground floor is the beautiful master bedroom with its super-king bed, leading through to a luxury bathroom. In here is a rainshower, whirlpool bath and even a cleverly hidden flat screen TV, for a little touch of decadence amongst the simplicity of the woodland surroundings.
