This delightful, semi-detached fisherman’s cottage is situated just yards from the sea in the lovely seaside resort of Banff.
With far-reaching coastal views, Hazeldene Cottage is an ideally situated holiday cottage, perfect for a family or group of friends.
The smart and thoughtful accommodation is set over two floors with the bedrooms, boasting lovely sea views, and a separate toilet also occupies the upper floor.
At ground floor level there is a well-equipped kitchen that leads through to a sociable dining room with a cosy coal fire and large sofa bed, and visitors will certainly enjoy sharing meals in this lovely room.
The sitting room is an excellent place for relaxation at the end of an active day, although if you have some energy left, why not set up a family tournament on the Nintendo Wii?
Completing the accommodation on the ground floor is a shower room.
To the rear of the cottage is a fabulous private decked area, a real sun trap, where alfresco dining or a pre-dinner drink can be enjoyed.
From the decked area a second, larger outdoor space can be accessed via some quite steep steps.
From this elevated position you can sit and relax and enjoy the view along the coastline.
A rear gate from the garden opens on to the old railway track that leads to Banff’s stunning, award-winning sandy beach to watch the seabirds swoop through the sky and dolphins leap from the sea in the distance!
Within a mile of the cottage is Duff House golf course and close by is the award-winning Marine Aquarium, and this north east coastline of Scotland has many small and interesting villages all worth exploring, and the opportunities for beach walks and wildlife watching are endless.
At the end of a wonderful day returning to this homely and welcoming cottage will be simply perfect.
