“Fab house in a breath taking location with sandy beach across the road.”

A fantastic house with everything we needed for our week's stay. Beautiful sandy bay across the road with shop, hotel, restaurant and pub 30 yards from house. A very quiet village where you can really chill out.

Our family loved the house, thanks Elspeth for the shortbread. We will definitely stay here again. Spacious with two shower rooms and a bathroom.

“A place to make memories”
Reviewed 4 June 2017 for a stay in May 2017

The perfect holiday home - beautifully equipped, situated on the edge of the village with shop and cafe close by. Perfect for all ages with the beach only a short walk, a play park for the young at heart and a lovely private garden. Elspeth takes grate pride in her property and it shows. A place to unwind, make memories and live the dream.

“Fantastic”
Reviewed 7 May 2017 for a stay in May 2017

What a beautiful house, Auld School House. Full of charm yet cosy. Everything you need for a fantastic holiday. Location amazing, beach right on your doorstep, we took our Weimaraner and what a pleasure to just open the door and he could run on the beach. The house was fully equipped, we wanted for nothing. Washing machine, tumble dryer, dishwasher , everything. Beautifully clean, lovely enclosed gardens. We were even greeted by Elspeth with a plate of homemade shortbread.
Plenty of places to visit, and we were even lucky with the weather. Highly recommended and we will no doubt return. Thank you Elspeth

“Peace and Quiet...just what I needed”
Reviewed 22 January 2017 for a stay in August 2016

person found this review helpful

We stayed for a week in August and wow what an amazing week. The beach is gorgeous, it's pretty empty and when the tide is out - well you can walk for miles. We even went in the warm water!!!! The cakes next door were delish and treated ourselves to ice cream from the shop and loved it. We went to the chocolate factory which is a must for anyone who has kids. We took our 2 dogs and they loved it. Pub has an amazing restaurant and we enjoyed some lovely food. There's some great walks around and the views were incredible.

We'll definitely be back.

“A wonderful house in a fabulous place!”
Reviewed 13 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

We have just spent a week in this gorgeous detached house and have loved every moment! Elspeth was amazing , helping to resolve issues (completely out of her control) super quickly! My mam is in love with the new washing machine!!!! The property is well equipped and was spotlessly clean upon our arrival. The gardens were lovely and we had loads of parking and space to store things like my daughters Trike in sheds and the like.
The beach directly opposite was amazing. My daughter and all our dogs spent the vast majority of our holiday there.
I can honestly say it has been one of the nicest holiday cottages we have stayed in. Highly recommended!
