Availability & Booking


We have three spacious self-catering holiday cottages for you to choose from located in the heart of the Cairngorms National Park.

We think you will like our sumptuous beds. They all feature naturally upholstered, deep pocket sprung mattresses, a choice of firm, soft and hypoallergenic pillows and light, warm wool duvets, all wrapped in Fairtrade, organic cotton bedding to ensure you are fully rested and revived for whatever the next day brings. A travel cot, high chair and baby bath can be provided in the larger two cottages on request, to make it easier for young parents. We know how challenging it can be to travel with little ones… and all the gear they need to keep them happy.

Pets are welcome in all our cottages as we appreciate how much owners enjoy sharing their holiday with their best friends. Balneden is particularly suitable for walkers, cyclists and winter sports as we have a fully equipped laundry, drying room and secure cycle/sports equipment storage.

Welcoming All

We accept guests from all corners of the globe from all walks of life and operate with an equal opportunity and accessible approach. We seek to ensure everyone feels welcome, safe and secure during their time at Balneden. Our priority is to ensure that all our guests leave with happy memories to treasure and share.

To help us achieve this, we welcome any questions you may have, from access to zoned heating or anything in-between, whether viewing our website, booking, during or after your stay. Please don’t hesitate to contact us, we will be only too pleased to help.
