Situated in the heart of Glenlivet with stunning views of the Packhorse Bridge (the bridge on the Glenlivet Whiskey logo) and the river Livet. Cosy Bridge Cottage is perfect for a quiet and peaceful retreat.
Bridge Cottage is a newly renovated crofters cottage in the beautiful Bridgend of Glenlivet. The ancient Packhorse Bridge can be seen from our garden and is stunning every season of the year. If you're into outdoor activities, castles, whiskey distilleries, clay shooting, scenic drives, skiing or just relaxing in a peaceful and cosy environment then Bridge Cottage is the place for you.
You will have the entire home and gardens.
There is a wood/coal burning stove you are welcome to use but please bring your own wood/coal as we have central heating so do not include this in the price.
There is a large workshop you can store your outdoor kit or bikes in if you have them. Please let us know so we can leave the key.
Check in is after 4pm and checkout is 10am
The wifi box is located in the dining room bookcase. The password is on the box.
