Just back from a very relaxing week long holiday in Gardenstown. The natural beauty of the area is stunning with lots to do for kids.
Accommodation was good and big enough for a family of 4. We were spoiled with the weather, bright sunshine every day and long walks. This is our first time staying in this area and would go back, try it you won't be disappointed.

We are so pleased that you enjoyed your stay at Ellie-Ann Cottage, your dog must have felt very spoiled to be able to start every day with a run on the beach! After all it is his holiday to enjoy too! We certainly hope that you will be back very very soon.

Warm cozy cottage in a stunning location, ideal for total relaxation. Take enough supplies so there's no need to use the car just stroll along the beach at low tide which ever way you choose. For the active ones take your bike or canoe but really why bother? Just chill x

“Five star holiday self catering cottage”

My choice was made online and based on description only. It lived up to expectations and more. Unusual and delightful seafront location (just behind sea facing cottage, but with sea view from small lounge and bedroom windows). Small gravel area with bench up behind the cottage and concealed washing line. Parking away from cottage, but manageable. Beach amazing and clean. Walks aplenty. Facilities good both in the cottage and in the village. Excellent restaurant and tea/craft room in harbour area open Thursday to Sunday. Locals and their dogs most friendly. If you like to get away from it all and have peace and quiet, this is it!

“Nice cottage but needs a few finishing touches”
Reviewed 2 May 2013 for a stay in April 2013

A lovely cottage in a beautiful part of Scotland.

The cottage had everything you can ask for, it was very well equipped and the attention to detail was very good. The town the cottage was in was very friendly and the local people seemed very nice, we had a lovely experience from the lady in the Tourist Information Centre in Fraserburgh, very helpful indeed.

The cottage description was not as accurate as we would have liked, for example the garden as described was a bench on some gravel, it wasn't very private at all. The bathroom had a very small bath with no handrails which for anyone with mobility issues would have made access very difficult. Parking was mentioned on the description as being ample but this is really not the case. Road access to the property is via the harbour wall which is quite narrow and parking here didn't really feel safe especially at high tide. In high season we feel the parking could be a major issue.

Also the neighbours next door were a little noisy on occasions, children running around the side of the property and we did feel that they were intruding on our peace and quiet which is what made us choose this cottage over others.

We enjoyed our stay in the cottage and we did leave feeling rested and refreshed but a few things do need to be addressed to make this cottage a much better holiday retreat.
