Alltnacriche comfortably sleeping 10 and with a vast kitchen-dining area as well as two sitting rooms. Beautifully furnished and finished, but with a relaxed country feel, it is ideal for large groups of family or friends who want a private but convenient location. It has recently undergone extensive renovation, with luxury touches added - including its large outdoor hot tub, and cosy underfloor heating throughout. The interior has been designed to be elegant but contemporary; with Farrow and Ball colours and some striking, bespoke pieces of furniture, the whole house has a timeless feel.
The enormous eat-in kitchen will delight any keen cook with its large range cooker, wine fridge and a generous expanse of surfaces. Dinner is served at the large oak dining table with its views out over the gardens and meadows which stretch down to the River Dulnain. Whilst dinner is being prepared, the rest of the party can enjoy drinks in the sitting room, set through an archway from the kitchen. After dinner you can either relax here in front of the large wood-burning stove and the TV, or in the second sitting room at the back of the house with TV, DVD player and Playstation. And be sure to remind any accomplished pianist in your group to bring their sheet music, so you can all enjoy the piano which sits in the dining area.
In the warmer months you may prefer to eat outside on the decked outdoor kitchen and barbecue area, perfectly positioned to take advantage of the afternoon sun as well as the views down to the river.
Two of the five large bedrooms are on the ground floor. The master has a luxurious super-king bed, dressing room and ensuite shower room and the other has been fitted with a pair of handsome, bespoke, adult-sized bunk beds. There are three further bedrooms upstairs; one with a double bed, one with a king bed and the other with two single beds. Upstairs you will also find both the bathroom and shower room.
Should you have any work to do whilst at Alltnacriche, there is a spacious, private home office with free unlimited WIFI. Whatever the season and whatever Highland adventures you return from, there is room for everyone’s outdoor clothes and equipment both in the outdoor bike store and in one of the largest and most well-equipped utility-cum-boot room we have ever seen!
Your four legged family members have their own room too in the "dog house", a delightful under-stairs bolt hole in the kitchen where even the largest hound can stretch out in comfort and peace.
Alltnacriche is perfect for children, with a very safe position away from the road and a large grassy garden for playing. The river makes a perfect place for older kids to play, or for a 10 minute riverside stroll to the centre of historic Carrbridge. The village is home to cafes, pubs and outdoor fun at the perennial family favourite, Landmark Forest Adventure park. Carrbridge Golf course is also located just 500m from Alltnacriche.
Alltnacriche is in a family orientated location with the owners living next door and some lovely neighbours nearby. If you are booking for a large group of friends, please contact us prior to booking and we can advise on suitability.
"Had the great pleasure of staying here during February half-term. We were very well looked after in what is a really well done holiday home. The accommodation is spacious and well equiped. Even in the cold and wintry weather we were very cosy, not least thanks to the homely log burner. After a couple of days of skiing, the luxury of relaxing in the hot tub felt well earned."

"Thank you so much for letting us stay at this wonderful house! It had everything we needed and was super clean and tidy. The beds were so comfy and the children loved plying in the garden and hot tub! Beautiful location and surrounding walks. We have really enjoyed our stay and hope to return in the future. " May 2022
"We all had a fabulous time staying in Alltnacriche Lodge. It was a fabulous location with lovely walks into Carrbridge and not far from many other walks near Nethy Bridge, Aviemore and Loch Morlich. It was perfect accommodation with an amazing social kitchen dining area, wonderful to cook and socialise in. It was lovely to meet the owners who live next door, who were very helpful giving us details of local walks etc. and a perfect touch with the complimentary Cairngorm Gin from them, which we all appreciated. We look forward to holidaying there again in the future. " September 2020
"Our stay at Alltnacriche was absolutely wonderful. What an amazing property inside and out. Ideal place to chill out and relax for all ages, dogs included. Some good walks literally on your doorstop and the Cairn Hotel is a very short walk away so you can call in for a drink or supper without driving and all served by very pleasant friendly staff. Also a shout out to the Galaxy Chinese Restaurent in Aviemore again very nice staff who delivered a faultless meal to us for a very small delivery charge. In a house this size a party of 10 would certainly not be living on top of each other there is plenty space for everyone as in living space, bedroom space and bathrooms and a nice large table to all sit around together. It's one of the nicest property's we have stayed in. Looked into booking this stunning house again for next year but it is unsurprisingly fully booked. " September 2021
"We really did have a lovely time. This is our second visit to Alltnacriche and it didn’t disappoint. The house is within walking distance to beautiful woodland walks and to the village of Carrbridge with groceries shop, petrol station and hotel with bar and restaurant. The house itself is extremely clean and the decor to a high specification. Plenty of space for a large family and also dog friendly. When we arrived the house was warm and inviting with Christmas tree and decorations up for us. To top off our welcoming arrival, we received a beautiful hamper full of goodies😁 We spent lots of time visiting local attractions and walks around many of the numerous lochs nearby. Evenings we’re spend around the lounge wood burner, watching stars from the garden hot tub or playing games. The owners are so kind and helpful, ensuring our stay was perfect. We will definitely be returning again, holiday of dreams! " December 2021
