Each of our lodges has been crafted to create a comfortable and stylish home from home, tastefully decorated with a modern interior and comfortable living/dining areas with south facing aspects. The two generous bedrooms are complete with en-suite facilities which can be made up with either super king size or twin beds. Our kitchens are sleek and a delight to use with everything you need for a self catering break. We believe we’ve thought of everything, from a corkscrew to the kitchen sink! Every lodge has a south-facing deck creating an ideal haven for breakfast at sunrise or an evening dram as the sun sets. We are more than happy for you to bring your well-behaved pets to enjoy a holiday too. ...Each of our lodges has been crafted to create a comfortable and stylish home from home, tastefully decorated with a modern interior and comfortable living/dining areas with south facing aspects.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
If you have submitted a review for a holiday rental property, we may also ask that you provide us with proof of your stay to ensure that your review is attached to the correct rental property.
Holiday rental reviews collected via the VRBO website (formerly Homeaway) and syndicated to the Tripadvisor website are not currently subject to Tripadvisor’s standard moderation processes.
Learn more about our review moderation.

About the neighbourhood
Beautiful – breathtaking – unforgettable. A visitor attraction in its own right. An ideal spot for families, couples or friends the town has one of the region’s most notable visitor attractions, Dunnottar Castle. On the top of a craggy cliff-edge, the ruin is a firm Scottish landmark thanks to its dramatic setting. It’s own sandy seafront and picture perfect harbour. Along the seafront you will also find the Stonehaven Open Air Swimming Pool. So no matter what the weather you can experience the trueness of our crisp air in Winter and the gorgeously lit nights in Summer.
