  • "This is a really lovely hideaway cottage."

    Set out in the countryside but with reasonable access to all the major centres. The cottage itself is very clean and well equipped with everything needed supplied. The bedrooms are large and airy with many beds. It has a woodburning fire which really adds to the ambience on a cold wet night. There is a large enclosed garden for your pet to run around in. Plenty of birds of different variety to see and watch including owls which if you are lucky you will see flying. The owners had left us a nice bottle of wine which was a nice touch. Would we go back, yes definitely.

    Thank you so much for your wonderful feedback, we are delighted you had a nice stay- despite the weather! We look forward to welcoming you back to Altries again soon. Property Owner

  • "The cottage was lovely with beautiful grounds."

    However it was let down by its facilities. The hob was broken (one ring was always on while cooking), some rooms didn't have light bulbs and during the rain there was a leak over the kitchen sink/window. This has the potential to be a fantastic property, but needs TLC.

    Thank you for your comments and I am very pleased to hear you felt the cottage was lovely. The Storkery Cottage has been redecorated and new carpets fitted throughout. New furniture installed in the sitting room. It therefore now no longer looks ‘tired’ and has a great feeling of warmth and light as a result of the work we have done. We hope to welcome you in the future with the improvements made. Property Owner

The property

Petercutler 3.9 miles.

Resting on the outskirts of Maryculter, towards the bustling suburb of Peterculter, is the detached Storkery Cottage.

With beautiful countryside views and sleeping up to five guests, Storkery Cottage is a fabulous family-friendly setting for your next Scottish adventure, within easy reach of Aberdeen.

You enter the property through the handy utility room, which has a washing machine and tumble dryer, as well as making a great space to leave any coats and shoes before entering your new home-away-from-home.

The kitchen/diner is a great space to prepare a picnic or gather together to enjoy a tasteful meal around the dining room table, with your loved ones.

Moving through the property there is a shower room so you can freshen up after a long day, and a convenient cloakroom with basin and WC.

To complete the ground floor, there is a welcoming sitting room with a warming woodburning stove placed against an exposed brick wall which adds character to the room, as you enjoy a family film night with some popcorn.

Climbing up the stairs, there is a double room, a twin room and a further single room, meaning the property has flexible sleeping arrangements that is ideal for families.

Each room has a good amount of storage space to unpack your personal belongings, as well as cheerful décor and bright colours.

Outside there is off-road parking for up to three cars, and an enclosed garden with a large lawn area for your furry friend to roam free and two sweet chairs with a table, to enjoy your morning coffee outdoors, or maybe even a glass of wine as the sun goes down across the countryside views.

Maryculter is a rural village, sat next to the River Dee, and nearby is the The Den & The Glen which is a park with waterfalls and gardens, dotted with fairytale and nursery rhyme characters, which is a great afternoon out for children.

Just a short drive away is Peterculter, which has a great selection of shops, pubs and eateries to enjoy an evening out, as well as a museum and an activity centre which teaches historic tales through attractions such as the river of Culter Burn, and the statue of Rob Roy Macgregor, a folk hero known for leaping across Cutler Burn to chase away Hanoverian troops.

The city of Aberdeen is well worth the visit with its contrasting mixture of high cliffs, open farmland, rugged mountains, and then the sandy beaches and sea views, as well plenty of places to eat out, have a drink or do some shipping.

Slightly further a far is the stunning Cairngorms National Park, which is great for an adventurous day out with great views, walking trails, cycle paths, outdoor activities, watersports, and the chance to spot some wildlife.

For a versatile trip to explore Aberdeenshire, choose Storkery Cottage as your base.
