Alltnacriche is one of our largest lodges, 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 twin beds which can be zip-linked to become a super-king bed on request. 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!
The ground floor is fully accessible for wheelchair users and the bedroom is fully equipped for a less mobile guest if required. It has an ensuite wet room, sitting shower and large jacuzzi bath. *
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.
*Disabled access room available on request.
"Fabulous property, our only regret was not being able to stay longer. Made for a great base for trips to the Cairngorms. Super facilities mean 10 could easily be hosted here, with ample lounge space. Hope to return in future to see all Carrbridge has to offer in warmer months." January 2018
"Fantastic lodge in a lovely peaceful location, just outside of Carrbridge. Everything finished to a very high standard both inside and outside. Very comfy beds in all the bedrooms with good communal areas with a cracking wood burning fire. Best bit for the group of 9 was the hot tub in the garden!" November 2017
"This place is incredible. Beautiful cottage with so much space. Very tastefully decorated with every comfort. We had an amazing four days here. There are so many activities nearby in the area, a lovely little village in walking distance and when we asked for restaurant recommendations, the hotel the hosts told us about was spectacular. Communication was always prompt, polite and helpful and when we had a bit of a disaster with jewellery going down a drain they organised a plumber with no hassle. If you want a holiday in the Scottish Highlands this place is without a doubt the place to book. We will definitely be back" July 2017
"An excellent house which accommodated our party of 10 easily. It was very well equipped with a lot of lovely personal touches throughout. Beds were comfortable and everywhere was very clean. The house is within easy walking distance of local restaurants and the nine hole golf course which is well worth playing. The hot tub was put to good use during our stay as was the outside garden furniture. The house stands in its own grounds, off the main road, so safe and very quiet at all times. A house we are definitely returning to!" June 2017
