The property

Gardenstown 4.4 miles.

This charming cottage sits in the little fishing village of Pennan, on the charming Aberdeenshire coast.

Set over two floors, The Laurels offers a charming base for families and friends looking to escape everyday life and experience a taste of quintessential Scottish life in this coastal region.

After parking up on the roadside, unload your personal belongings into your new home from home.

Prepare an afternoon snack in the kitchen, utilising the range of appliances on offer, before loading up the dishwasher and perching yourself on the sofa, flicking through the TV.

Pour yourself a glass of bubbly and relax in the rear patio garden, positioned at the foot of the cliff path to provide picturesque, elevated views over the house and towards the sea.

Choose between the shower room and bathroom as you begin to settle down for the night, while the choice of the double or twin bedroom ponders your mind.

If you fancy a break from cooking, why not get better acquainted with your surroundings and tuck-into a home-cooked meal at Garden Arms Hotel, then take a romantic stroll along the sandy bay to savour the sunset.

Pop on your walking boots and head on an adventure up the Crovie Clifftop Path for panoramic coastal vistas, enjoy a picnic at the secluded Cullykhan Beach or admire the historic landmark of St John’s Church and Kirkyard.

History buffs may wish to visit the town of Banff and enjoy a tour of the beautiful Georgian mansion.

There’s plenty to experience in this quaint little village, making The Laurels a charming retreat in any season.

About the location


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 all year and a restaurant, galleries and several tea rooms in season. 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 coastal paths and the Whisky and Castle Trails, as well as numerous golf courses, fishing, sailing, dolphin watching, surfing, climbing, great walking and of course, stunning sunsets and fabulous scenery. The Grampian and Cairngorm mountains are easily accessible for day excursions, and the North East of Scotland is protected from prevailing winds and has the driest Scottish climate with virtually no midges.
