  • "Just wow!! What an absolutely stunning property, we didn't want to come home"

    . The owners certainly go above and beyond in making sure that everything you could possibly need, is provided. As with other lodges, we packed certain things other places have never had but Woodend Croft was so well equipped, we couldn't quite believe it. They had everything from an air-fryer, to a slow cooker, to drying robes, to bowls and towels for our furry companions. They even had a selection of games, oh and let's not forget the fabulous welcome gift hamper. There was even some whisky for us to have a wee dram!! If that wasnt enough, the garage is set up with a mini fridge, dart board and mini pool/hockey table. Even the decor is gorgeous, it's so well thought out, very inviting and relaxing. I adore that the photos in the property were of the local wildlife and the mountains. The beautiful fragrances of candles and diffusers were by a local company as well. They clearly pride themselves on showing what Scotland and Aberdeen has to offer. Can't wait to go back!!!

    Thank you so much for such a wonderful review. This has made my day and so pleased you enjoyed everything about the house. We have tried to make it a home from home for people visiting. We really hope you will come back and stay again. Fiona & Steven. Property Owner

  • "Woodend Croft is a wonderful property, our family thoroughly enjoyed our stay here."

    The house is as described, we loved the space, it is large whilst also being cozy. We spent quality time together as a family, the hot tub was a favourite and we appreciated the welcome basket and the whiskey. Fiona and Steven are very responsive and made sure our stay here ran smoothly, great hosts. We took time to explore the area as Woodend Croft is in a lovely location, including visiting different beaches, parks and gardens. Pitmedden Gardens is very handy and a nice place to walk the dog. We would definitely reccommend Woodend Croft, thank you for hosting us.

  • "This property is by far the best we have ever stayed in and we have had 2 or 3 breaks a year for many years."

    Everything was perfect with luxurious fittings and furnishings and perfect to relax in after a days travelling. With 2 smart tv's everyone was catered for. The bedrooms are large and the beds are very comfortable. This was a perfect relaxing holiday accommodation - could not be improved on - if only more were as good as this.

    We couldn't be more pleased that you enjoyed your stay at Woodend Croft so much. Hopefully you will be able to visit again soon. Thank you again for the positive review. Fiona & Steven. Property Owner

  • "We had a great stay, there were a couple of minor maintenance issues which we reported to the owners, but other than that it was all good."

    The children enjoyed the games in the garage and the hot tub. We were impressed that the washer was already preloaded with liquid and fabric conditioner. The house was lovely and warm so we didn't use the log burner. Having the two lounges meant there was some quiet space when the children were being children. Overall a great place for a week with the family. Thank you.

    Happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay. Thank you for pointing out the maintenance issue as is has given us the opportunity to get it all sorted before the next guests arrived. We are delighted you could make use of all the facilities with your family and look forward to welcoming you again. Regards, Fiona & Steven. Property Owner

  • "We had a lovely long weekend at Woodend Croft, the welcome pack was a lovely touch and the house was warm and cosy upon our arrival."

    The spacious house was exactly as described and very well equipped. From warm blankets to the plastics available for use in the hot tub everything had been thought of. The garden is also fully fenced in so perfect for those bringing dogs. The hot tub just outside on the patio was spotless and big enough to cater for all our our party. The Welcome book gave us all the info we needed and we enjoyed takeaway from the Nazma Indian in Ellon which was able to be delivered, perfect! A lovely walk and cuppy at nearby Haddo House and a Sunday Lunch at the Udny Arms in Newburgh which again was superb. We will certainly return again :)

    Thank you so much for the great feedback. We love to hear that people have not only enjoyed the house but the surrounding area also! We hope to see you all again. Fiona & Steven. Property Owner

About the location


Ellon 6 miles; Aberdeen 14.9 miles; Peterhead 23.5 miles.

Pitmedden is a rural village resting within the parish of Udny in Aberdeenshire, surrounded by rolling countryside and around seven-miles from the coast at Newburgh, making it a great base for touring this north-eastern area of Scotland. The village's local amenities include a café, small supermarket, a pub and a takeaway, offering all the essentials for a self-catered stay. Pitmedden's most renowned attraction is the National Trust for Scotland Pitmedden Garden, comprising five-miles of immaculate boxwood hedging planted to create intricate patterns, with 80 different varieties of apple tree here and beautiful fountains to admire, it's a lovely must-see attraction. The Museum of Farming Life offers an insight into the local farming history of the area and is full of agricultural artefacts, whilst around twenty-miles away lies the fairytale castle of Fyvie Castle, another National Trust for Scotland property, you can take a tour around the opulent rooms and hear of the legends and even ghost stories that live on today. The ancient village of Tarves is nearby and is thought to have been founded back in 600AD, now home to a traditional butcher where you can pick up some locally sourced ingredients for your self-catered cooking. Venture out to Newburgh to visit the Newburgh Seal Beach and explore Foveran Links Nature Reserve, with a golf course here too. Enjoy a fantastic break to the delightful Pitmedden.
