  • "It was a lovely cottage!"

    My son and I had a lovely time chilling out and visiting the beach! Also good garden space for the dogs! Thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would definitely like to return!

  • "Just what we needed as a break from city life!"

    I have mobility issues so found the stairs a bit challenging and the double bed mattress was too soft for our liking. The parking entrance was a little tight for my vehicle too. That asides we enjoyed our stay and the locals were all really friendly. Scott, Shona & Mia too.

    We feel at home the minute we arrive. Cosy, comfortable, well stocked and in a fantastic location. Amazing beaches, quaint villages to visit and fantastic cycle routes with quiet country roads to cycle safely for miles. Zander and Faye are brilliant hosts. Our 8th visit and already booked to go back this year.

  • "The cottage was extremely comfortable and extremely well equipped - a real home from home."

    There wasn't anything missing that we could think of. The only downside to our stay was the WiFi which was dismal. The only place we could get it was the kitchen, the chair nearest the door in the livingroom and the closest side to the front door on the bench outside. This is the only reason we have given 4* as everything else was perfect.

    The cottage was literally a 5 minute walk to a beautiful sandy beach which was ideal for long walks for us and plenty of sea time for the dog . I would definitely recommend staying here and I am sure my wife and I ( plus dog ) will come back again.

  • "Very nice comfortable cottage with all that’s needed."

    We always take a freezer box with prepared meals because there’s not a lot of places to eat out, something to keep in mind. There is a good fish and chip shop in the village and Chinese and Indian take outs in Fraserburgh. Lovely to have the owners nearby and very helpful calling to see if there was anything we needed. Plenty of things for children in an upstairs trunk if you have children with you. Would recommend to anyone.

  • "A really lovely two bed cottage, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay."

    A bit of attention to detail could be given to some of the rooms, touch up of the skirting boards and fix squeaky doors and hinges etc, however a very clean and well presented place. The skylight on the landing is in need of attention though as very drafty, didn't shut properly and when it snowed as hard as it did when we were there it started to come in the house through the gaps!! The master bedroom is huge but the mattress was too soft for us and a bit spring-y in the back. Might need a change. The out house is awesome as a great storage space particularly for us as we were there for two weeks. The kitchen was well equipped, however, we had to buy ourselves a bigger pan as the ones provided were just trying pans or saucepans. WiFi was surprisingly good in the kitchen particularly which meant we could work from there no problem. Best bit? The village it's in is right on the most BEAUTIFUL coast line and beach. Just stunning, lost loads of time just walking up and down nearly as far as the lighthouse near Peterhead! Thanks Fay and Zander!

  • "We had a good week at Coastal Cottage."

    The beds were fine and we slept well. Kitchen was well equipped. Shower ok but it was a bit awkward to use the flexible hose. The house was spotless but we had wash up some of the cups and cutlery as they were a bit sticky. The fridge was quite temperamental and actually froze two cucumbers and the tomatoes! We think the door was a bit on the wonk. We have a larger type car/ people carrier and it was difficult to park in the drive if people were parked opposite- which they always were. We were blocked in the first day so subsequently we parked on the road. But a smaller car would be fine. Internet access was good. However the TV was very old school and was not smart so you couldn't link or screen cast to it and the channels on offer were very basic Personally we found the sofa a bit uncomfortable as it was quite low and lacked support. It would have been nice to have a couple of TV tables as we prefer a table and chairs as opposed to being perched on a high stool at the breakfast bar. Another small issue was the complete lack of privacy in the garden. Also the garden wasn't small dog friendly as there were gaps under the gate. However the neighbours were really nice and friendly and loved our little dog! There is a small shop in St combs selling a limited range of basics at a high price so you need to drive to fraserburgh to find a supermarket. Apart a very indifferent fish an chip shop there are no other eateries in the village. These are very minor issues and I have no problem recommending the cottage. One last note- the stairs are steep and twisty. Anyone with any mobility issues would struggle to get upstairs.

  • "When planning a holiday with Sykes I always put time and effort into this to ensure to the best of our ability we get nice accommodation."

    Plus very positive reviews for this cottage and at nearly £700 for the week felt it must be a good cottage. Upon arrival all looked very good with the exception of the sofa and the stairs to the bedrooms. In the first instance the stair was very precipitous and as older people found this really scary going up and down! Given the nature of the stair this had not been highlighted in the blurb for cottage. The sofa in the lounge (I feel) had seen better days and as tall people we found it extremely uncomfortable with no support. My husband had to use a garden chair for support as the sofa had exacerbated pain in his back to the point he could hardly walk and the bed did not help either!! This leads me onto the main bed where the mattress was awfully soft - absolutely no support and you could feel the divan beneath and I'll point out that neither of us are overweight! Also the sheets on the bed should have been thrown out as they were bobbly and not fit for purpose. On a positive note the cottage was lovely and clean but would definitely never stay here again.

Not far too the RSPB by Loch of Strathbeg, more fabulous beach (and seals in the surf) hidden away at Rattray and Aden Country Park (inc farming museum); Peterhead prison museum worth a visit too. The only downside about the cottage for us was a bed that was a bit soft for our liking, but I expect others may find it just right. The rest of it worked well for us.

About the location


Peterhead 17 miles; Portsoy 33 miles; Aberdeen 40 miles.

Fraserburgh is situated just along the north east coast from Aberdeen and borders the mouth of the Moray Firth. Whilst it is still a busy fishing port the number of boats has decreased dramatically over the years, although todays boats are far bigger than they were in bygone days. The town itself is a real community with a strong Football team and impressive 18 hole golf course, the 7th oldest club in the world believe it not, established in 1777. With its modern clubhouse vistors are most welcome and can enjoy the bar, dining room and lounge areas that overlook the course and sand dunes. The mueseum of Scottish Liighthouses is based in Fraserburgh and is well worth a visit and gives a real insight to the history of the Lighthouses in the north of Scotland. Fraserburgh is a beautiful seaside town with a rich history and an award winning beach. Inverallochy 18 hole golf course is within walking distance of Fraserburgh. Nearby is the RSPB Loch of Strathbeg which is one of the best places for wildlife in the UK as well as Aden Country Park within easy reach with 230 acres of parkland to enjoy.

Please ensure there is a day gap to allow for cleaning if booking a short stay during the week.
