Holiday Rental House
Have you ever gone away only to find the accommodation isn't what it looked like in photos? Rooms in the photos looked bigger and brighter than they actually are and the big fluffy towels folded nicely in the photos were replaced with ones that have seen better days? Set among the beautiful scenery that the North East of Scotland offers, you'll find Garden Cottage, just outside the hamlet of New Byth, matches the photos, the rooms are light and bright and the towels really are big and fluffy. There's no hidden extras and we even provide 'the little things' such as washing powder, dishwasher tablets and extra binbags. Oh, and not forgetting logs if you'd like to light the wood burner. We welcome returning guests year after year and you'll find it's ideal for couples, families or a group...Have you ever gone away only to find the accommodation isn't what it looked like in photos?

Set among the beautiful scenery that the North East of Scotland offers, you'll find Garden Cottage, just outside the hamlet of New Byth, matches the photos, the rooms are light and bright and the towels really are big and fluffy. There's no hidden extras and we even provide 'the little things' such as washing powder, dishwasher tablets and extra binbags. Oh, and not forgetting logs if you'd like to light the wood burner. We welcome returning guests year after year and you'll find it's ideal for couples, families or a group of friends. Whether you come in Spring (recharge after the winter), Summer (think BBQing on the patio), Autumn (long walks through the leaves) or Winter (watching new snow falling while the log fire is roaring inside) we know you'll love coming here. Our bright and spacious detached single level cottage is extremely well equipped and offers you total privacy to relax and recharge. Enjoy the sun on the patio, watch the children play on the large lawn or go for a walk and spot the deer, pheasants and other wildlife that roam freely here. The 2 bedrooms (there's a double bed in the first bedroom and twin beds in the second as well as a z-bed which is suitable for young children) overlook the garden as does as the kitchen, which is open plan with the spacious 27ft x 18ft living/dining room. French doors from the living room lead onto the patio area where there's a table and chairs as well as a picnic bench. The cottage has 2 bathrooms, one is a family bathroom with shower over the bath and the other is a master ensuite shower room. We are Pet Friendly and welcome well behaved dogs. We do not charge for pets, but guests MUST let us know at time of booking if they are bringing a pet/s with them. Guests may arrive at the cottage anytime after 4PM and departure is by 10AM Garden Cottage is ideally situated for either relaxing (doing nothing!) or exploring castles and tucked away little coastal coves. Follow the Whisky Trails, play golf at one of the excellent nearby golf courses or enjoy some great fishing and shooting - all are within easy reach. Pack a picnic (cooler & basket provided) and enjoy the beautiful nearby beaches, some of which are award winning, at Hopeman, Inverboyndie, Cullen, Fraserburgh, Banff and Findhorn or visit the lovely old fishing villages of Pennan, Crovie, Gardenstown, Portsoy, Sandend and Whitehills which are all a very short drive away. Some recent guests comments: A great location to visit the North East, superb hosts and a fantastic cottage. One of the best we've ever stayed in A fantastic stay in this lovely cottage. The photos don't do the cottage justice, it is larger than we anticipated. It is a very warm cottage, very well furnished, the owners are extremely friendly and helpful and we would just love to return We loved the cottage was on one level, with easy access for my husband who struggles with stairs. Anthony and Carrie are the most welcoming hosts who greeted us warmly and supplied a wonderful welcome basket. Our 10th visit here, we love it here! Fantastic cottage, fantastic hosts, fantastic setting and a truly fantastic stay! Just booked our third stay here after spending another lovely two weeks. What a great cottage. Fabulous 3 weeks in this wonderful cottage What an amazing little haven your lovely cottage is A lovely cottage, beautiful setting and great personal touches from wonderfully friendly hosts A fabulous 9 days back in Aberdeenshire and not easy to leave this wonderful cottage We cannot fault this lovely accommodation, superb, thanks to our friendly hosts Carrie & Anthony We were very lucky to find Garden Cottage. A well equipped home from home. Excellent 5* Love, love, love the cottage. The welcome basket - wow! So kind. I wish I could stay forever More

Interaction with guests
We try to be here to say hello on your arrival (if we're not we'll pop round on our return) but we are also very aware of your privacy and while we stress 'we're here if you need us' we won't pop in unless you need something. If you plan on leaving very early on your day of departure please let us know and we'll pop round and say goodbye on the Friday, otherwise we normally do this around 0930 on the day of departure.

About the neighbourhood
Stunning!! Lots of festivals, Highland Games and shows for everyone to enjoy. Hidden coves, beautiful beaches, heather covered hills, far away forests and nearby walks.
How to get there
We are just off the main A98 Fraserburgh to Banff road, about 7 miles out of the market town of Turriff. Coming from Turriff when you turn right onto the A98, you will pass a yellow coloured house with brown fence on your left, a blue gate lodge house on your right, and we are on the left just around the corner. Coming from Fraserburgh or Peterhead we are on your right just past the sign/turnoff on your left for New Byth. Stay on the A98, DO NOT VEER OFF TO NEW BYTH. The sign is set back off the road so easily missed
