The Property

A charming detached traditional seaside cottage with some lovely sea views, in the popular Moray Firth village of Gardenstown. This Gardenstown cottage has been stylishly refurbished throughout and is only yards from the seafront, tucked down a quiet alley. The welcoming Gardenstown cottage sitting room is comfortable and leads through to a fully fitted kitchen with breakfast area. Two comfy bedrooms, a double and a twin, complete the accommodation in this cottage in Gardenstown. To the rear of the property and up a few steps is a garden terrace area with views over the bay and cliffs, a perfect place to relax and soak up the tranquil atmosphere around this charming Gardenstown cottage.

About the location

Gardenstown

Banff 8 miles; Fraserburgh 17 miles; Aberdeen 32 miles; Elgin 43 miles.

The port village of Gardenstown is often linked with neighbouring Gamrie and Crovie as one community, and was founded in 1720 by Alexander Garden as a fishing village. Gardenstown borders a small sandy bay with stunning scenery flanking both sides. The village has a pub serving food and a bakery/grocers. A steep road leads you through the ancient, narrow and winding streets to the harbour where many small boats are moored. The neighbouring town of Banff boasts a relaxing sandy beach and a variety of fascinating architecture in contrasting styles, exemplified by Duff House, an impressive Georgian mansion open to visitors and home to paintings and artefacts from the National Galleries of Scotland. Banff and the surrounding area also have a good selection of shops, restaurants and hotels, which serve a fine selection of local sea foods, whilst nearby Pennan, a beautiful old smugglers village, was the location for the movie 'Local Hero'. The whole area is an ideal tourist destination, being on the North East Tourist Trail, with easy access to both the coastal paths and the Whisky and Castle Trail, as well as numerous golf courses, fishing, sailing, dolphin watching, surfing, climbing, great walking and of course, stunning sunsets and scenery.

Very well equipped house. Everything you could want and very clean.

Mrs Soley-greensill, Stourbridge, September 2013

Near to beach, nice and quiet, and comfortable cottage.

Mrs Foster, Inverness, August 2013

The cottage was very well furnished and presented very nicely, it felt very homely which is not easy to do with a holiday let. The location was stunning, very quiet and very tranquil. The cottage had all the amenities we needed to be able to relax and enjoy our holiday.

Mr Stewart, Grangemouth, April 2013

Very good cottage, plenty to see and do locally, whatever your age. Lovely little sandy beach and very quiet. Enjoyable time!

Mrs Jennings, Southampton, April 2013
