A good experience overall
4 / 5 Good
Location is terrific. Carrbridge is lovely and only a mile or so away. Jess is super-responsive on email, and even before the holiday was very helpful with information about local walks, fishing lakes and things to do in general. The house has a really welcoming 'feel’, and it felt like a home. The space, facilities, setting, garden, trampoline, climbing frame, and peace & quiet were (mostly) first rate. The dining table was brilliant for large groups for dining and board games. The more formal sitting room is nice for a bit of peace and quiet. Rooms are lovely and comfortable, and except for Room 5, all the plumbing and showers were really good.
Couple of areas of obvious improvement would be to put some stools in the kitchen. The fact that the house doesn’t have a straightforward television setup in the downstairs lounge off the dining area is just plain bad. You have to navigate through iPlayer etc to watch, and it’s just not consistent with the rest of the experience of the house. Not that we watched that much, but still. Wi-Fi was good throughout.
An unpleasant surprise was that the lodge is actually three properties on the same plot with shared access to the outside play facilities. The Vrbo details did not make that clear at the time of booking, and still don’t at the time of writing this review.
The two smaller cottages to the rear of the lodge can be seen from the aerial photo on the site, however the description should make it explicit that these are separate and may be occupied by different groups while you are staying in the lodge. The fact that the neighbours have their own fenced of gardens didn’t stop them walking their dog round the large garden that ‘belongs’ to the lodge.
The middle cottage is being renovated at present so when you book this property ask yourself the question whether you want two set of neighbours in close proximity for the duration of your stay at Feith Mhor.
