À propos de ce logement
Luxurious idyllic 18th century cottage on bank of the River Isla on the edge of the Cairngorm National Park, with private hot tub. Only 90 mins from Edinburgh and 35 mins from theatre and fabulous country and gourmet food shopping. Pub grub 5 mins.
Glenisla has something to offer in every season of the year and this luxury holiday cottage is a gorgeous place to stay – with so much to do, you will be spoilt for choice. Claypotts sleeps from 2 to 6 people, (discounts for 2 people) and the layout of the cottage with an ensuite king-sized bedroom downstairs makes it very cosy when rented by a couple and also perfect for the less mobile guest.
With its central location, Claypotts is a perfect base for exploring Scotland. Whether you prefer a relaxed holiday, or an active one, the options at Claypotts are many and varied. There are not only numerous activities and places to see both on and off the estate but because we try to do everything to make your holiday a happy one, we provide a full concierge service. Close to the Queen’s and Queen Mother’s Balmoral and Glamis Castles, there is outstanding wildlife viewing, fishing and other sporting activities along with whisky distillery tours and artisan food producers. Why not go wild swimming, go on a wildlife photographic safari (on the estate), pony trekking (6 miles), skiing (35 minutes) or golfing (4 courses within 14 miles) or have tennis lessons from a Wimbledon junior finalist, followed by a massage and dinner made by the estate’s cook who uses organic local produce whenever possible. Alternatively let us make you afternoon tea with hot cheese scones whilst you stroll along the river or swim in one of the pools at a place beloved by Queen Victoria.
Excellent pub food 5 minutes, good restaurants 30 minutes, 2 star Michelin restaurant at Gleneagles Hotel.
The cottage is convenient for Glenshee skiing in the winter. We can measure you for skis and bring them to your door. In spring wander through the daffodils in the garden to the sounds of snow melt in the river and continuous bird-song. Lambing begins in March and the migrating birds return. Hire bikes from the estate and cycle round the glen or take a fishing rod to one of the lochs or fish from the garden. Glenisla is almost entirely organic: there is such a profusion of wild flowers that part of the glen is a wildflower reserve. In spring the river bank is covered in stitchwort, primroses and cuckoo flowers, followed by foxgloves and 8 feet high blue sprays of campanula. Walk the 500 yards from your door to the Fairy Glen, then along the woodland paths past the ruins of a Pictish village to the wild heathery mountain tops beyond, from which there are 360° views for 40 miles.
The picturesque cottage has a large, pretty sitting room with a wood burning stove and comfortable furniture. The modern, sunny kitchen has everything you might need (it is a 5 star cottage!) and has a dining area with a French door into the garden.
There is an ensuite king-sized bedroom with power shower on the ground floor. Upstairs is one twin/super king with its own bathroom and one ensuite bedroom with power shower. Both have wonderful views and the sounds of the river and its bird life. All bedrooms have electric blankets and extra-long beds.
The half-acre garden alongside the river bank is fully enclosed so very safe for children and dogs. There is a seating area with table and chairs, and a barbeque. Babysitting can be arranged which is a great bonus if you want to go out for the evening. There are many extras available on the estate – including hire of a piper for special occasions, a masseuse etc.
All bed linen and towels. First basket of logs, thereafter available at cost.
To cut down on your shopping, we provide bathrobes, soap, tea towels, oven gloves, cling film, apron, foil, bin bags, loo rolls, washing up liquid and essential cleaning materials and other helpful touches to start your holiday off.
