“Honeymoon with a difference!”
Reviewed 14 August 2013 for a stay in August 2013

After our last visit to this exquisite holiday cottage, my partner and I decided to marry. Almost exactly 52 weeks later we returned as husband and wife. Clare and Steve bowled us over with their very kind and thoughtful welcome back (home) gestures. We found flowers, gifts and my favourite 'fizzy juice' waiting for us. This in addition to the usual getting started pack of bacon, eggs, bread etc.
The cottage itself was as pristine as ever and even boasted a fresh coat of paint in the kitchen. The bedding, towels etc were spotless and plentiful. We were able to cook some fabulous meals in the well stocked kitchen. With the dishwasher taking the pain out of the clear up!
It's was a different kind of honeymoon though as we were accompanied by our two little granddaughters.
The holiday cottage is ideally situated for visits to a multitude of superb beaches. Sandend and Cullen beings two of the best.
We were also blessed to see dolphins on 5 of our 7 days!!!
We will definitely be returning again next year - 4 in a row!

“Great wee cottage - ideal holiday house”
Reviewed 18 June 2013 for a stay in June 2013

A lovely wee cottage, very well presented, decor and finishing excellent. The owners have done everything you could reasonably think of to make your stay enjoyable. A very nice welcome pack of eggs, bacon, bread, milk etc and the fresh bunch of flowers was a nice touch. The booking was easy and the owners kept us well advised throughout , friendly.
Parking outside the cottage. Village typical former fishing village - we had a nice meal at the Admiral pub and from the fish van (thursdays), good small supermarket and also a post office. A very good choice of golf courses nearby and lovely coastal walks. We had a very enjoyable holiday.

“A LITTLE GEM”
Reviewed 5 January 2013 for a stay in December 2012

Efficient and professional admin from the owners made the booking process very easy. Information and directions were first class as we had not been in the area before. The cottage has been presented to a very high standard with a great attention to detail in the furnishings, fixtures and nicknacks which run with the 'sea/beach' theme. Good welcome pack and all household goods supplied. The accomodation layout is quirky due to the original Cottage and if there was a niggle it would be the need to walk through the kitchen to get to the toilet and shower. That said it did not detract from our enjoyment of the property in a winters week when the central heating and gas burner fire were greatly received. There is a great open space to the rear furnished with table, chairs and barbacue for the summer months. The locals are very friendly and The Admiral Hotel in the harbour serves great food. Great scenery and beaches all along the coast to satisfy families with children. Step back in time in this quaint harbour village and you won't be disappointed. We would highly recommend to our friends and hope to return.

“Perfect holiday house!”
Reviewed 31 December 2012 for a stay in August 2012

We were very pleased to arrive at such a beautifully renovated home away from home! The welcoming package of a few groceries and necessities was perfect. This was part 2 of our Scotland holiday and it was a lovely little place in a quiet and beautiful part of the country. Clare and Steve stopped in mid-week to make sure everything was OK and it was great to meet them and share some travel stories, as we had only corresponded by e-mail (from Canada). Loved every minute and would happily go back.

“A perfect, romantic hideaway!”
Reviewed 26 September 2012 for a stay in August 2012

We visited Findochty for a second time this summer. Once again we were struck by the high standard of care and attention paid throughout the cottage. Clare and Steve cater for your every need. From chilled wine in the fridge to towels for the beach!
Gerry and I spend a lot of time visiting Historic Scotland sites. We used the cottage as a base, visiting a new place of interest every day. Duff House is a must for a visit.
Our evenings were spent over quiet romantic meals. Some in local restaurants. Others cooked in the cottage's well equipped kitchen. (Great M&S in Elgin)
Spending time away in Findochty is always a truly magical experience. This time was extra special. The combination of peace and quiet and romantic moments led to our decision to marry as we left the cottage. We have already booked our return for next summer. This time for our Honeymoon!
