Cozy holiday cottage in the centre of Ballater featuring Swedish Wood Fired Hot Tub, underfloor heating, fully equipped kitchen and private patio with garden views. Sleeps up to 6 guests: Super King Double, Twin Room & Sofa Bed.
Riverside Cottage was one of Ballater's earliest buildings and when Karl first visited it, it had gone to ruin. The property has now been comprehensively but sympathetically renovated and offers a cosy yet spacious home away from home with all the usual modern amenities & more in a great location to explore Ballater and all of Deeside. The two-story house sleeps up to 6 & has a comfortable lounge with 2 large sofas & a woodburning stove, a spacious kitchen, a garden view room with dining & seating area, cloakroom, and toilet downstairs. The bathroom & 2 bedrooms can be found upstairs, a super king double room & a twin room, both have bedside cabinets and wardrobes. The bathroom is well sized and boasts a built-in shower & separate large double ended bath. A further 2 guests sleep on a sofa bed located in the room overlooking the garden. The secluded garden features a traditional Swedish wood fired hot tub, a great way to unwind after exploring some of the local activities available; be it fishing, a distillery tour, hiking, biking or even skiing in the winter! Please do not confuse the eco-tub with a Jacuzzi. An initial 2 baskets of logs for the hot tub & wood burner (in lounge) are provided & instructions on how to get them ‘fired’ up can be found in the cottage guide once at the house. Ballater also offers a number of local restaurants and cafes for dining out, alternatively the cottage has a fully equipped kitchen to cook for yourselves & there is also an outside dining area in the secluded courtyard for those warmer days.
