Property code: CA346

This substantial stone holiday house sits in mature, wooded grounds, within the Cairngorms National Park, and is simply idyllic for large family holidays and special occasions.

Situated within the Cairngorms National Park, in the small village of Nethy Bridge, this is a wonderful house for a relaxing rural retreat among friends and family which sleeps 19 guests across nine bedrooms. A popular holiday destination since Victorian times, Nethy Bridge is also known as ‘The Forest Village’ for the way much of it is enclosed and hidden by the tall pines of Abernethy Forest. The pretty stone house is within the trees itself, so there are pleasant woodland walks from the doorstep.

Return from a day of exploring the trails, and after you’ve pulled off your boots, set about preparing dinner in the charming country kitchen. There’s plenty of worktop space plus a table for other members of the party to get stuck in and help, and with an Aga and double oven your meal will be ready in no time. Settle round the long table in the dining room to eat and share stories, before taking a seat in the living room. This has been split into two, with one half acting as a TV snug, and the other a sitting room complete with a piano. Perfect for younger guests who want their own space, or to allow the party to spread out, everyone can get comfortable for the evening. There is also the conservatory: to keep it cosy when the sun sets, light the woodburner and star gaze through the glass roofing. Upstairs, go for a soak in your tub of choice, either the corner bath or the bath enclosed in a stylish tile surround. The bedrooms, spread across the first and second floors, have been thoughtfully put together. Interesting art hangs from the walls and brightly coloured soft furnishings create a cheerful and friendly atmosphere. Spend a sunny afternoon at the house enjoying the garden, where you can set up croquet on the lawn and discover the pond within the trees. Two BBQs mean no-one is going hungry for a tasty burger, and the whole party gathered round the chiminea as night falls is a lovely way to end a day.

We had a lovely week in The Grey House, located just outside Nethy Bridge. The traditionally decorated home housed all 13 of us comfortably and has lots of outdoor space to enjoy, along with fantastic forest walks literally 20 yards from your back door. The Nethy Bridge cafe just down the road is excellent and we enjoyed a pint or two in the publicRead more bar of the hotel. Hide

The Grey House is a wonderful place for a large family gathering. It is welcoming and is well equipped for a large number of people, with a good dining room for everyone to gather and lots of sitting areas for different activities. There is easy access to woodland tracks for walking and cycling . We enjoyed watching the birds and spotting red squirRead morerels from the window. The croquet was good fun and our little ones enjoyed the climbing apparatus , swing and little house in the garden. Hide

Ideal situation to explore surrounding areas, not too far from any of the tourist attractions. House is spacious with plenty of options to meet up or stay apart. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay!

A more polite host would go a long way. We found the abrupt manner put a dampener on an otherwise lovely few days. There were several rooms that had dead flies/insects in it which was a little off-putting. The house is large and well equipped and in a picturesque location. It is very suitable for large groups.

We had a week here with family from around the country and really enjoyed the week. Plenty of space for everyone and a large garden for the children to play in. Very quiet and private setting with plenty to do in the area too. Highly recommended.
