“Excellent cottage ...”
Excellent cottage Would highly recommend Great location Great views Nice and quite bur not far away from the shops
“Hazeldene Cottage is cosy and comfortable.”
Location is good. Perhaps the owner should be a little more specific about how steep the steps are up to the rear of the property. It would not suit everyone.
“The cottage was lovely and it's situation was beautiful (right on the sea, very close to a long sandy beach).”
The wee back garden was a right sun trap and good to lie in and listen to the sea. The area is great: good walking and stunning coastline. We particularly enjoyed a visit to Troup Head to see the gannet colony. Thanks very much to Reena for a relaxing week.
“It was a warm comfortable cottage and very welcoming.”
It was very well equipped. We did miss a phone connection and felt a bit cut off in that regard but as we were out and about we managed to pick up connections elsewhere . Lovely walks along the beach with the dog in spite of the weather
“Beautiful cottage in a gorgeous location”
“Fantastic location for walks, sights and local shopping together with great sea views from the cottage and garden.”
The family and dog really enjoyed the walks along the beach too. A lovely relaxing break.
“Spent a lovely week at this cottage great location.”
Beautiful views . An opportunity to chill out and relax.
“Perfect pet-friendly, people friendly cottage by the sea.”
Wonderful location, you really are on the doorstep of the sea. The cottage had everything we needed. Was really well set up for visiting with our dog. There even was the food bowls and some doggy treats. Enclosed garden at the back. Great walks without the need to drive anywhere. If you're looking for Internet and constant phone use you're in the wrong place. But if you want the beauty of the sea and wildlife, Hazledene is the place to go. Cosy fire in the evening which we loved, but very warm house without it as heating on all winter. Kitchen was well equipped and plenty of games etc. The host was very approachable and friendly. Would love to go back.
“Fantastic location, very comfortable and clean, stay went very quickly which says it all.”
We were looking for a relaxing place by the sea and this is exactly it. The accommodation is great and the beach is literally 20 feet away. Sitting by an open fire watching the tide come in was precisely what was needed for the week! Thank You!

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.
