Cottage is excellent everything you could need a real home from home but top class facilities /views breath taking / local surroundings beautiful and Local fish and chips best I have ever had from Linda's chippy - you couldn't find anywhere better
If you are looking for somewhere homely that’s better than home, then you’ll find it at Hillcrest. Exquisitely furnished, this is house has it all! Magnificent sea views, historic charm, & home comforts, its also extensively equipped with things you never knew you’d need on holiday!
Ideally located a few steps away from the cliff paths that lead to Cullen Harbour, beach & Main Street, it’s elevated position affords guests uninterrupted views to watch the ocean & the dolphins. It’s also close & safe enough for us to allow our children some freedom to wander, which they thought was great!
All of the 4 bedrooms are beautifully furnished, bright & cosy. The kitchen, dining area & lounge provide ample space for a large family to enjoy peace & quiet & comfortable living. The modern kitchen has every conceivable piece of equipment needed to cook & prepare meals if required & the addition of dishwasher, washing machine & tumble dryer are essential luxury’s we love on holiday!
This was our second stay at Hillcrest & we’ve booked to return again next year as we have loved our weeks here to relax & recharge. I wouldn’t consider staying in any other properties in Cullen, except for the ones run by Rob & Selma - they are the perfect hosts. Highly recommended!
This is a beautifully decorated and furnished cottage, with a spectacular location on a cliff top above the harbour in Cullen. There are views to die for out over the bay and sands. There is a stunning deck area for sun bathing, dolphin spotting and a G&T or 2 with friends and a safe garden for children or pets (do ask) with barbeque equipment. It's difficult to come up with anything this cottage does not have.
Selma and Rob are warm and friendly hosts always contactable to help although everything about the cottage has been so well thought out it's rare to have to do so.
We are coming back in 2018 for our 4th visit. Former Cullen folk ourselves, this is now our favourite place to be.
Our stay at Hill Crest was wonderful. Everything you could ask for was provided. We were greeted by Selma upon arrival. We were made to feel so welcome. The house is immaculate and furnished beautifully. We can't wait to return. Can't reccomended this house enough.
What a lovely experience staying at Hillcrest cottage. I've stayed at dozens of properties and this one has to be among my favorites. Although I chose the cottage after viewing it on line - the photos didn't do it justice. It was larger than it appeared and each room was tastefully and comfortably decorated. The kitchen was so well - equipped that we wanted for nothing and we were thrilled with the yummy welcome basket that included soups, whiskey, bread, cookies, jams, coffe and fresh eggs from the owner's chickens. The beds were super comfortable and had quality linens. And the location of the cottage, sitting on a cliff overlooking the North Sea, was amazing.The bathrooms were modern and well appointed - including luxury lotions, gels and shampoos. We were able to do day trips in all directions, visiting Inverness one day, and driving south through beautiful countryside another. We were so comfortable that we cooked every meal in, only venturing out during the day. My cousin who had the double room on the upper floor, couldn't get over leaving her window open at night and hearing the sound of the crashing waves. I would certainly return to Hillcrest and would recommend it to anyone who is looking for a cozy, clean, well appointed holiday letting.

So back again to the wonderful Hillcrest in Cullen. This amazing house will be a forever holiday for us. We just love the hospitality Selma and Rob provide every time we go.
When you walk into the cottage the first thing that is apparent is the care taken on cleaning the whole house after the last guests have stayed. It is absolutely immaculate and so clean.
The house is in amazing condition every time we stay here and I think that is a lot to do with the care the guests take when staying here and the care and attention Selma and Rob take to looking after it for the guests.
The welcome basket is always appreciated as is the kitchen and all it's utensils.
This year we were very fortunate that the weather was fabulous so we spent most of our time outside in the garden. The garden itself was perfect for our little boy and so beautiful to be in. Again the view and the location of the cottage is just perfect.
There really is nothing you could want from this cottage that is not already provided.
We have booked already to return and will do for a long time yet.
Unfortunately I left my purse in the cottage and Selma and rob very kindly posted it to me at their own expense. Not many people would take the time and care to do that.
This is the most amazing find and we just love now that we know our holidays will be spent here every year. Thank you Selma and Rob for a beautiful home to stay in. X
