Brae Cottage, Methlick, Ellon AB41 7HR

Cottage -
3 Bedrooms , 2 Bathrooms , Sleeps 6
Ellon, Aberdeenshire, Scotland
Brae Cottage has a very special place in my heart- it is where, as a child, I was brought for family holidays. Although it retains its traditional looks it has now been completely renovated, enlarged and brought up to date to provide all the benefits of modern living.
Snuggle up by the cosy open fire on a wintry day,
enjoy the evening sun and views of the Ythan Valley on a warm summer's evening and
use the cottage as a great base to explore the best that Aberdeenshire and the Aberdeen area have to offer.

We are now offering the private use of a 6 person hot tub which is proving very popular. The cost is £120 per booking which includes use of bathrobes and a bottle of bubbly. In the interest of your own health and safety there are some T's and C's to be observed. We will visit regularly to keep the tub water in good condition...

We stayed 14 days in this beautiful cottage. The weather was exceptionally beautiful, actually too beautiful for Scotland. But no complaining of course. We have been able to make maximum use of the garden. The peace and the view are real plus points. In the...More

About the neighbourhood
Methlick is a pretty village with some great amenities. The local hotel and pub has a great menu and is open for lunches and evening meals 7 days a week. They offer a cosy lounge bar & restaurant with open coal fires and welcome families with well behaved children. They always have a selection of real ales, Malt whiskies and a growing range of Gins on offer.
The village has its own dedicated cricket ground 'Lairds', home of the MCC (Methlick Cricket Club) and matches are played at weekends throughout the season.
We also have an exciting new kids adventure playground which every young visitor should pay a visit to. Hoodles playbarn only 20 minutes drive away provides indoor and outdoor play areas for children and gym and cafe facilities for the grownups.
There is an old road,...
Getting around
Being in such a rural location is an opportunity to get back to the old methods of transport- walking and cycling. If you can't bring your own bikes we can help you to hire some locally. There is a bus service to Aberdeen via the surrounding villages but the flexibility of a car is really essential.
