Previous visitors' comments about Baker's Cottage:
The cottage was probably the best we have stayed in. It is impeccably clean and fully provisioned. There were numerous thoughtful additional touches and a very generous welcome pack. The owners have made a great effort to provide every comfort possible.

Baker's Cottage is 5* accommodation in a fantastic position overlooking the harbour in Portknockie. The owner has paid great attention to detail and thought of everything to ensure you have a wonderful stay. Everything in the property was brand new. Beds were so comfy.
Mrs Cartwright, Motherwell, October 2012
Great view of Portknockie bay, inspiring cliffs and natural beauty. The beach at Cullen is great for walks with children.
Bugge, September 2012
This was the best cottage we've ever stayed in - not just the high standard of the rooms themselves, but the extra thoughtful touches. The stunning sunsets we got each evening!
