  • "We had a good holiday in Sefton House; however, I was disappointed that the house did not meet our expectations and looked better on the photos than in real life."

    Whilst the property is quite spacious, particularly the bedrooms and bathrooms, the kitchen was poorly equipped. We were also visiting family and friends nearby so had meals with them otherwise we would have struggled to cook proper meals with the items provided in the kitchen (e.g. no measuring jug amongst other things). The glasses were a mis-match of all different kinds and did there was not enough wine glasses for six adults. I bought and left in the house. In the bedrooms, the mirrors were not positioned near to plug sockets making it difficult to use the hairdryer and the sheets and duvet covers were poor quality and not ironed. We have stayed in many properties of similar price range and the furnishings etc. have been of much better quality. The property has a large garden which is enclosed but could do with some tender loving care and the front of the property has a lot of weeds. Overall we had a good holiday.

  • "Enjoyed our stay in Sefton house ."

    The house is comfortable with a lovely big garden for our dogs and was safe to leave them think our dog spent half of her time in there !. Spacious big rooms and nice kitchen and living room for the 5 of us. Buckie is a nice base to explore the coast we loved the beach at Cullen . it felt very homely and would definitely recommend a stay here ideal for exploring the moray coast !

  • "Sefton House is in a great location, close to the sea, town and park but in a quiet location."

    The garden space was amazing and very safe for my dogs. The house was very relaxing and comfortable with everything you need for home away from home and more. I would definitely return and recommend to friends. Thank you for a lovely stay.

  • "Lovely house very well equipped and spotlessly clean."

    En-suite downstairs bedroom ideal for elderly guests. Shop and chemist next door to house. Can recommend the various walks in the area eg., from Cullen to Portknockie via the viaduct. Gokarting and laser clay shooting good day out, which is located before Elgin. Unfortunately, we failed to catch sight of the dolphins. Would visit again

  • "Lovely house, well appointed and well equipped."

    Would benefit from some curtains at the bedroom windows and a blind in the upstairs hall window. Dogs loved the big garden and it is a property which we would certainly book again

  • "What a beautiful house in a lovely location!"

    The house was pure luxury- the beds upstairs are huge! The bathrooms are fabulous and we appreciated the shampoo, conditioner and shower gel provided in the showers. The house had been very thoroughly cleaned. Kitchen had tons of utensils and could easily seat everyone at the large table. The garden is lovely - totally enclosed and so safe for kids and dogs. Even a handy (clean) outdoor loo! The kids loved the little play park at the seafront (5 mins walk) and locally we used the Tesco and Lidl as well as the corner shop (a minute from the house). In the town there is takeaways, restaurants and some shops. We loved visiting Cullen (would recommend eating in The Cullen Bay Hotel), Lossiemouth, Spey bay (unfortunately we didn’t see dolphins but did see Ospreys hunting) and going further afield to Nairn and Loch Ness!

  • "This is the second property we have had through Sykes Cottages and again I have been impressed."

    It was a beautiful property, clean and fresh, the beds were extremely comfortable, the bedroom downstairs is great for grandparents. There is only a couple of things I could point out to add and that is mirrors in bedroom or a charge for toothbrush in upstairs bathroom. The drive was tight, reversing in is definitely recommended. There is a corner shop and chemist round the corner, Tesco and Lidl five minute drive. We would recommend trying Portknockie Fish Chip Shop, Baxters, Johnston of Elgin, which were all Gluten Free and also Huntly Falconry, Dolphin Centre at Spey Bay. We have to go back as there is so much to do and visit

  • "We all had a lovely holiday at Sefton House, Buckie."

    The accommodation was spotlessly clean, fresh and contemporary in design. The downstairs double bedroom with ensuite was great for those not so happy climbing stairs. The house was always warm, the showers great and had everything we needed for a a very happy family holiday. Plenty off road parking for at least 2 cars and a large back garden for kids to play safely, while we enjoyed a morning coffee. Sefton House is only a few minutes walk from the lovely shore and harbour and 10 minutes to lovely wee shops to explore and friendly coffee shops with delicious cakes! Within only a few minutes drive there are so many places to visit - the Sefton House Facebook page was really useful for pointing us in the right direction for local attractions. The owners of Sefton House have also negotiated discount for many local attractions with is an added bonus. ( the Portknockie Fish and Chips were fantastic!)

  • "Lovely base to explore, few things needed -hair dryer few glass /plastic bowls in kitchen."

    The sofa is very low but comfortable ? Chairs would help?. The TV is very slow changing channels we changed the batteries. More detailed welcome pack ie shops locally beaches dog walks etc. Lovely warm house details re where dogs allowed needed in information before final booking as half of garden shut off for seeding lawn . We had a good relaxing break .

  • "The house was really lovely and pristine , position in the town was good and the driveway was large enough to accommodate both my parents large mobile home and my car."

    The beds were extremely comfortable and the size of plot the house sits on was huge with a fully enclosed rear garden that was excellent for the dogs and would be good for someone with kids as it was very safe. The only negative in the entire property was the couch, large corner unit which looks great but is the most uncomfortable I have ever sat on . We ended up bringing in camp chairs from my parents mobile home and two of the bedroom chairs as none of us could sit comfortably on the couch. If you are slouching about and there are a couple of you watching TV then it might be fine but we were a group of 6 adults , 4 of whom were 60+ so this just wasn’t suitable which was a shame as this was the only negative of the entire stay. If there were a couple of chairs in the lounge this would be better as it at least gives you another option for seating. All in all a great place to stay and highly recommend .

About the location


Portessie 1 mile; Rathven 1.5 miles; Portknockie 5 miles; Cullen 7 miles.

Overlooking the beautiful Moray Firth, the burgh town of Buckie lies on either side of the Burn of Buckie, on the north east coast of Scotland. It has an array of shops and pubs and is a great coastal base from which to explore this wonderful part of Scotland. Regular boat trips leave from the harbours of Buckie and further along the coast to Macduff, which offer the chance to see bottlenose dolphins and an array of sea birds. To the west of the town, Spey Bay is the base for the Scottish Dolphin Centre and is also a fantastic place from which to spot dolphins and seals! From Buckie, stretching in both directions, the coastline is peppered with pretty fishing villages and wonderful beaches that are perfect to stroll along with your fish and chips. Pack a picnic, drive to the fabled Loch Ness and enjoy a stroll along its stunning shoreline, or explore the historic city of Elgin, a short drive away. There is so much to see and do from this wonderful little seaside town.
