  • "This is our second visit to this property."

    The property is very clean and is well equipped. Everything there that one would need. The owner made it quite clear if we had any problems just make contact. We didn’t of course have any problems. I would certainly recommend this property and we hope to visit again in the near future.

  • "Fantastic cottage in a lovely coastal village."

    Cottage was very clean, well appointed and more spacious than you think. Great beds, comfy sofas, excellent shower and the kitchen has everything you need. Great walks from the door, fabulous views from the cliffs and sandy beaches. Small Co-op in Cullen but a large Tesco 5 minutes away in Buckie. Helpful hosts. Would love to return, thoroughly recommended.

  • "What a wonderful time I had at Sea Breeze Cottage."

    Comfy, cosy, perfectly located for walking on the beach and browsing the little shops up the road. I loved the brightness and spaciousness of the bathroom, the shelves full of books in the lounge and the corner with the dining table, chairs and little window. My favourite corner… The kitchen was also spacious and very well equipped. The range cooker was a wee bit scary for me, I didn’t use it…maybe some instructions would help in future, for an older guest like myself. I loved the blue kettle and little teapot. Very nice crockery, glasses and cutlery, a pleasure to use. I slept in the downstairs bedroom, very comfortable double bed and I enjoyed luxury of the tv on the wall…something I don’t have at home. Nice to be able to park at the door as well. I had a lovely week here and would definitely come back again.

  • "This was our second time visiting Sea Breeze Cottage."

    Lovely accommodation with all the facilities needed to ensure a pleasant stay. Highly recommend to anyone needing a peaceful holiday in a quiet Scottish village. The cottage placement is quite convenient, as our previous stays have been down at the beach level, which made it a tiresome walk each time we wanted to go to the shops. Sea Breeze is a short walk to the shops and quick access to the harbour. Cullen itself is a very quiet village. Having said that, there are many places to visit either walking distance or a short drive. Check out the pet cemetery, the beach and extend your walk further up to Portknockie. The view over the sea is outstanding. Drive out to Elgin or Inverness. Cullen village has the essential shops including a Co-op, post office, fish & chip shop, and a Chinese takeaway. A large Tesco supermarket is not too far away near Buckie. Thank you to Alex & Alison for answering the queries we had very quickly. Hope to visit the cottage again next year.

  • "We have stayed at Cullen on a number of occasions, but this was our first visit to Sea Breeze Cottage."

    The description and previous visitor comments provided an accurate summary of the accommodation. It was lovely and homely inside, with a warm cosy living room and ample space for four people to stay. Just my wife and I stayed for the week, so we didn’t need the two rooms upstairs. The kitchen had all the essential facilities that you will need for your holiday. It had been snowing during our stay, but I can imagine the outside table and chairs would be very useful during the summer months. The cottage placement is quite convenient, as our previous stays have been down at the beach level, which made it a tiresome walk each time we wanted to go to the shops. Sea Breeze is a short walk to the shops and quick access to the harbour. Cullen itself is a very quiet village, with only a handful of shops open for half of the week. Having said that, there are many places to visit either walking distance or a short drive. Check out the pet cemetery, the beach and extend your walk further up to Portknockie. The view over the sea is outstanding. Drive out to Elgin or Inverness. We had plans to climb Hill of Maud, but we will save it for a warmer season. Cullen village has the essential shops including a Co-op, post office, fish & chip shop, and a Chinese takeaway close by. A large Tesco supermarket is not too far away near Buckie. The owners had taken the time to provide a holiday home that will be enjoyed by all those who visit. Thank you to Alex & Alison for providing milk, tea and coffee, that was most appreciated after an 8 hour drive. Look out for the reclining sofa chair!! Hope to visit again in the summer. If you want peace and tranquility, the cottage and the village are ideal for you.

  • "We had a lovely week in Sea Breeze cottage."

    It was perfect for us as my husband is disabled and we enjoyed a spacious ground floor bedroom and ground floor bathroom with walk-in shower. Everything was sparkling clean. I think it should be made clear that the two upstairs bedrooms, which we didn't use, were only suitable for children but they were delightfully decorated. The position above the harbour was great.

  • "Excellent property well layed out and equipped with everything you could need and more."

    Comfortable beds and sofas. Loved the bonus of the goodies left for us, ie milk, cookies etc, a very nice touch thank you. The property is just a short walk to the harbour or to shops, pubs etc. Well situated to explore the Moray coastline ie seals at Port Gordon, Bow Fiddle Rock etc. Also ideally located to see the Mirrie dancers ( northern lights) if the right time of year and cloud free sky's. The only downside is no pets, but that's understandable. Our stay was to visit our relatives in that part of Scotland and we will most certainly be back to stay here again.

  • "Sea Breeze cottage is in a very good position in Cullen, with easy access to the main street and to the harbour, beach and many excellent walks in the area."

    Cullen is in a great central position on the Moray Forth coast, giving easy driving access to the marvellous scenic coast, towns and villages. The Spey whisky distillery route is an easily accessible for a day out (with a nominated driver!). The cottage itself was clean and tidy with all the home from home facilities. The Rangemaster cooker is excellent! The heating system was also very quick and effective. A good shower is provided. However it is a dark cottage, particularly in the living / dining area. The Windows are small with very little sun getting into the house. We were lucky enough to have good weather and were out and about every day, using the cottage as a base. We didn't use the upstairs bedrooms but I would say they are only suitable for children. Saying that, the cottage is well priced compared with others in the area that have a sea view, you could easily pay 50% more for this. The local businesses were very well prepared for Covid recommendations, although the footfall is down significantly in the smaller shops and pubs with no outdoor areas. We didn't eat or coffee out anything like the number of times we normally would on holiday but it's worth giving a shout out to the excellent fish and chips in Cullen, the very good beer garden at the Seafield hotel, the excellent seafood at the auld kirk restaurant in Fordyce and the great ice cream at Portsoy.

    Everyone was friendly and the whole place was neat and tidy. The cottage was beautiful and everything had been thought of that you might need. It was beautifully decorated and very tasteful. There is a good Chinese Takeaway very close and a Fish and Chip shop just off the main street. The ice cream shop is wonderful.

About the location

CULLEN

Elgin 21 miles.

The Moray coastal town of Cullen is situated on Cullen Bay, an inlet of the Moray Firth, and is an extremely attractive town, originally built around the mouth of the Burn of Deskford. Modern Cullen comprises the delightful fishing village of Seatown and an ‘inland’ area, which stretches up an imposing main street from Seatown, underneath a spectacular viaduct. Although the wealth of Cullen was built on textiles in the 18th century, the town is best known for its fishing heritage, its name being given to a rich, creamy haddock soup known as Cullen Skink. Visitors can enjoy Cullen’s lovely sandy beach, the famous Ice Cream Shop, regarded by many as Scotland’s best ice cream parlour, a fine selection of shops and restaurants, and the historic city of Elgin is within driving distance.
