Just over 2 miles from Stonehaven, right on the National Cycle Network, our location offers the best of both worlds; a peaceful, rural location, with easy access to the busy town of Stonehaven. We offer family run, self-catered holiday lets throughout the year. The house comfortably accommodates up to 5 adults. Outside, the farmhouse has a spacious, sunny, fully enclosed terrace with garden furniture. There is plenty of parking space and a shed for storing bikes. On the ground floor there is a large, fully equipped dining kitchen, lounge with wood-burning stove, bathroom and small single bedroom. Upstairs there are two large bedrooms, one with a king size bed and one with two single beds. The double room also has a small separate dressing room. Most rooms have sea views. WiFi is provided, but as this is a rural property, the internet speed will vary.More
House Rules
Pets Allowed: Yes
Smoking Allowed: No
Kid Friendly: Yes
We welcome quiet well behaved pets, but they must be kept downstairs and are not allowed up on the furniture - the stair-gate can be used if necessary. The terrace is fully enclosed, however pets must be kept on a lead if walking in the surrounding countryside as there is livestock in the fields. Note that we charge £25 for the extra cleaning for pets. No smoking includes no e-cigarettes.

About the neighbourhood
The market town of Stonehaven has shops, restaurants, pubs, playparks, indoor swimming pool, golf course, tennis courts, putting green, and a large open-air heated swimming pool. The town has a beautiful harbour which is lively in the summer with families paddling, sailing, kayaking or just sitting on the harbour wall enjoying a drink. Dunnottar castle is very nearby and there is a nice easy walk from the house along the cliffs, passed the castle, and down to the harbour. During the summer a land train operates. Events in Stonehaven include: The Feein' Market (June), Folk Festival (July), Highland Games (July), the Harbour Festival (August), The Real Ale Festival (June) as well as the world famous New Year Fireball Ceremony on hogmanay.
Getting around
As we are a rural property, a car is really necessary. However, we do have guests who choose to come without one and are happy to walk or cycle everywhere. We are right on National Cycle Route 1, and there is loads of great cycling, both on and off road. There is no public transport in the immediate area, but it is a 5 minute taxi ride into town. Stonehaven has a railway station on the Aberdeen to Dundee/Edinburgh line. Aberdeen airport is a 25 minute drive away.
