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, which can be converted to a super king, 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 garden features an eco-friendly fire heated 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!
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.
