“Cute cottage”
Reviewed 6 August 2018 for a stay in July 2018

Very pleasant stay, visited old haunts around the Moray Firth. Cottage dog friendly and garden secure for my mini Dachshound. Had to make sure we collected any groceries when out as was a few miles away from any shops.

“Family 1/2 term break”
Reviewed 8 November 2017 for a stay in October 2017

We had a wonderful week at Manse Cottage. Great location by the river Lossie. We had a very happy young fisherman even though the big one got away! Simply charming cottage, we loved the open fire and the garden was perfect for our dog. The owner was very helpful and when we had a little mishap, very understanding. We will definitely be going back and highly recommend this as a place to stay in this wonderful part of Scotland.

“A Week At Dallas”
Reviewed 22 May 2015 for a stay in May 2015

On arrival we were met by Angela who owns the property,she couldn't do enough for us. Tea and biscuits left for us on our arrival were a great touch.
Property was well situated away off the beaten track,with little traffic.
The cottage had everything needed for our stay,and spotless,all as per advertised. Great week had by all. Definitely would recommend for anyone wanting a quiet peaceful holiday.

“Peaceful and restful stay”
Reviewed 27 July 2014 for a stay in June 2014

The cottage was spacious yet cosy and of a very high standard. A real home from home. Delightful surroundings, very quiet and peaceful. Lovely to come back to after a days sight seeing. The owner Mrs Monro was lovely, gave us a warm welcome, and checked everything was ok . We had to leave a day early and Mrs Monro kindly returned an item of clothing that was over looked in our rush to leave. Oh and the milk in the fridge on our arrival and tea tray set up was most welcoming after a very long drive. Thank you .

person found this review helpful

The cottage is presented to a very high standard and has all the comforts of home. It was immaculate. The beds were comfortable enough - very soft mattresses. We enjoyed eating all our meals in the pretty, spacious, well-equipped garden. Manse cottage also provided an excellent base to explore the surrounding area. I have stayed in many lovely - and not so lovely - holiday cottages and this one has definitely been the best all-rounder. All in all we had a fabulous time here - very much helped by the scorching weather and the welcome and help offered by Mandy.
