“Better Than Great”
Reviewed 14 November 2014 for a stay in October 2014

Best cottage ever!

I would highly recommend booking this cottage. Yes it is clean and very well organised and there was a loaf of bread and a pint of milk waiting for me but you would expect that. It's the added extras, the wonderful bed and linens, fluffy white towels, lovely tableware, beautiful bathroom, underfloor heating... must I go on? I really loved the possibility to use the WiFi attachment on the built in stereo system, so I could use my IPhone as well as using my IPod.

It was so lovely that I ended up having some people who were renting other cottages over for dinner and they adored it! The view is amazing and I even loved closing the shutters at night and putting the fire on. So cozy!!

I did get to the local pub on Halloween. Great landlord and friendly locals which as a single traveler is a big bonus. Though when they asked me which cottage I was staying in and I told them, they said "the posh one"..and I was happy to agree!!

Best Tip for non drivers or even those who do drive!.. Get Tesco to deliver your shopping. I planned it that the shopping arrived at the door 45 minutes after I arrived, which gave me time to unpack and read the cookers users manual!

Thank You Brian!!

“10 out of 10”

I was a bit apprehensive about staying in a cottage in a small village especiallys since it was a girls weekend away. However all fears were quickly allayed. On arrival in this qauint village,we found the views to be absolutely spectacular. The cottage itself was amazing. When you first walk in the door you are immediately greeted with the tasteful decor and the cleanliness. The cottage was warm and inviting due to the wonderful underfloor heating and everything we needed from crockery to logs for the wood buring stove was on hand. We had intended going out for dinner on one one of the evenings but could not think of anything nicer than to light the wood burning stove and just relax on the comfortable couch with a meal, glass of wine and gaze out of the spectacular roof to ceiling window which overlooks the sea. We had an absolutley great weekend - Thank you.

“A gorgeous seafront retreat - with a view to frame”
Reviewed 14 October 2014 for a stay in October 2014

Couldn't have wished for a more perfect place to catch up with a couple of friends. The cottage is perfectly equipped with all the mod cons, even down to underfloor heating. What can I say about the view from the picture window WOW, doesn't even come close. Will certainly be back!

“Lovely holiday cottage right on the seafront.”
Reviewed 27 September 2013 for a stay in August 2013

people found this review helpful

This is a lovely, well laid out, tastefully furnished, totally relaxing, holiday cottage right on the seafront, with stunning views and friendly neighbours.
we stayed for a week in August (2 adults and 2 children) and mostly pottered around the beach, climbed the nearby hill and sauntered about the harbour and round to Crovie. Further afield, we visited Huntly, which has an interesting castle. We enjoyed some good sunshine, invigorating swimming, sandcastle building, nightly heron and wader watching, coffee and cake at the harbour cafe, glorious sunsets, the sight of dolphins in the bat (photos attached) and a sound sleep each night! Altogether a thoroughly enjoyable holiday in a really nice place.
Should appeal to those with an interest in photography/painting, lovers of seascapes/wildlife, and to who wish easy access to the shore or who simply want to escape and have a rest.

“Fabulous seaside holiday”
Reviewed 5 August 2013 for a stay in July 2013

people found this review helpful

We had a brilliant week at Seafront Cottage - the cottage was clean and comfortable and the modern decor def added to holiday experience. My kids absolutely loved being in the little house, but they also loved being so close to the sea and beach. They played for hours in the wee rock pools, and digging in the sand and splashing in the sea - an excellent beach for children. The great weather meant we were on the beach so much that we hardly explored the local area! The kids loved the seaside experience, and I loved the loft-style house, with all its modern conveniences. The whole package made for our best family holiday to date.
