“Lovely cottage, great location. ”
Reviewed 12 August 2017 for a stay in August 2017

If you are looking for a cottage beside the sea with stunning views in a quiet fishing village location full of character then this is the place for you! The cottage is a former fishing net storage building that has been tastefully renovated into a stylish living space. It is nicely furnished, with everything 4 occupants could need. Compared to other places of a similar price we've stayed in the mattress on the double bed could have been more comfortable. I was also disappointed with the lack of black out window blinds because the early bright light woke me - so if this bothers you bring your eye masks!! The cottage is worth renting alone for the sitting room window which covers the entire front of the house facing the sea and coastline allowing extensive views of extraordinary beauty. Gardenstown is delightfully small and full of Scottish character and characters. The heritage centre is a must visit, giving valuable insights into the history of the village. Brian the owner was very attentive in answering questions prior to and during the holiday. His obvious pride in the property made me want to love it and care for even more - in a good way. We live 570 miles away and were we to visit this part of Scotland we would definitely rent the cottage again. Can't say much better than that!

What a fantastic cottage and location. We didn't want to leave! We watched a pod of dolphins from the cottage window one morning and saw an Aurora Borealis in the evening!

The cottage was warm, clean and comfortable with everything catered for! I've stayed with family before and brought my partner this time.

“One of the best Moray Firth/Banffshire coastal town cottages”
Reviewed 12 October 2016 for a stay in October 2016

Brian was extremely helpful and reliable in terms of contact and support to answer queries before the stay itself including mentioning about parking, all at short notice.

We were looking for a small but modernly furnished cottage in a peaceful, coastal location on the Banffshire coast within easy reach of a larger town (Banff for bigger food shops and forgotten items) and lots to keep busy with in the outdoors. The location did not fail to impress, both when sat in the cottage staring for hours out to sea through the huge window, or further afield in neighbouring towns Crovie, Pennan, Macduff, Banff and villages inland....all serving their own delicious ice cream! We managed to get into Gardenstown Harbour Restaurant by accident due to a cancellation but best steak I have tasted in the whole world(!) and worth booking in advance. Lovely atmosphere and so friendly too, making a great evening. Watched the sunsets every evening (no rain all week in October!!) and walked along the beach in low tide, otherwise many seabirds diving for lunch and dinner too.

Property well equipped and bathroom lovely and large with rain shower, and comfy double. Great to have a dishwasher.

Due to spatial constraints not a large dedicated dining table, but we managed with just the both of us, and we could not locate the sharp knives but we got by again without too much stress.

Sure to return again :) Thanks for a great week.

“Secluded spot-Wonderful cottage”
Reviewed 17 July 2016 for a stay in June 2016

Wonderful place to get away from it all, seldom had a more peaceful holiday. Cottage is in a fabulous location. The picture window gives a stunning view out to sea, something I never got tired of while we there. Local people are really friendly, particularly at the Spar shop, the only shop in the village!

The road? in front of the cottage is not for the faint hearted, we found it easier to park at the other end of the harbour.

Teapot1 is a lovely cafe, wonderful breakfasts! Also worth a visit is the pub Gardens Arms, lovely meal.

All in all a wonderful stay, would recommend it for anyone wanting to get away from it.
