This well-presented detached cottage is located just a minute’s walk from a sandy beach in the pretty coastal town of Hopeman, on the shores of the Moray Firth.
This spacious cottage is ideal for a family or group of friends who want to spend time together exploring this lovely part of Scotland.
The ground floor consists of a well-equipped kitchen, a comfortable sitting room and a separate dining room both of which benefit from woodburning stoves, ideal for spending a cosy night in after an active day.
A modern family bathroom is also located on the ground floor which features a lovely teardrop shaped freestanding bath.
Upstairs, there are two comfortable bedrooms which both offer harbour and sea views; one king-size double with an en-suite shower room and one family room with a king-size double and a single, which also includes a telescope so you can view the distant boats on the horizon.
Outside, there is a parking area to the side and a lawned garden to the front and rear where you can enjoy dining alfresco on warmer days whilst enjoying the fresh sea air.
Hopeman is a scenic fishing village and includes a number of small shops, a popular tea room and a pub, but the majority of visitors come to enjoy the two sandy beaches and the pretty harbour.
Nearby Burghead also benefits from an excellent beach and a good selection of local amenities and is a haven for wildlife lovers with Burghead Bay being the ideal place to spend a day dolphin and whale spotting.
Although this area has miles of sandy beaches and loads of wildlife you may wish to venture inland and pick up the famous Malt Whisky Trail with over 50 distilleries within easy reach.
The popular coastal villages of Lossiemouth and Findhorn can be easily reached and are well worth a visit making a lovely day out.
Elgin, Scotland’s smallest city is just a fifteen minute drive away and is home to many visitor attractions including its famous 13th century cathedral.
This coastal cottage is a perfect base for a seaside holiday in a beautiful part of Scotland.
About the location
Elgin 7.3 miles; Lossiemouth 6.3 miles.
Hopeman is a scenic coastal village situated on the shores of the Moray Firth in the North East of Scotland. This small village attracts many visitors due to the fact it boasts two sandy beaches, East Beach and West Beach, as well as a pretty little harbour used mainly now for leisure crafts. The East Beach boasts a line of beach huts, all individually decorated, along with a small pavilion. The main street has a number of small shops and a popular tea room but nowadays the main venue for a big shop is the town of Elgin which has 24 hour Asda and Tesco supermarkets. Elgin sits between Inverness and Aberdeen, and is home to the historical Elgin Cathedral. The Moray Firth is home to many dolphins and stretches of stunning coastline with many whisky distilleries, forest walks, cycle paths and little harbours.
