    “This was the 4th time we have booked with Sykes and this cottage was the best we have experienced so far to date.”

    A true hidden gem. ...

    A true hidden gem. We had the opportunity to meet the owners Catrin & Dan who are both lovely and understandably very proud of this quirky yet comfortable 300 year old cottage. This cottage won't be for everyone as there is no WiFi and the access to the cottage is currently restricted due to the main road closure. In truth myself, wife and two children embraced this and it ended up adding to the depth of our holiday. Unfortunately, we had to cut our stay short and we felt that we only scratched the surface when out exploring the local area so very likely to return in the future.

The property

This charming traditional fisherman's cottage sits beside a small stream in the endearing village of Crovie.

As there is no vehicular access into the village and no WiFi at the property, this is a truly peaceful retreat, ideal for anybody looking to get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life and switch off.

Decorated with a stylish mix of antique furniture, quirky up-cycled pieces and beautiful paintings this is a lovely characterful cottage.

The kitchen is well-equipped and has a dining area while the comfortable sitting room has a woodburning stove and the added benefit of the original inset single bed.

The two bedrooms are very cosy and will provide an undisturbed night's sleep allowing you to awake fully rested and ready to go in the morning.

Completing the accommodation are a bathroom on the first floor and a shower room on the ground floor.

Outside the cottage has a lovely patio area to the front where you can dine alfresco and there is a garden to the rear.

These are delightful places to sit and listen to the relaxing sounds of the stream which runs alongside.

There are some unique activities available when you stay at this cottage, starting with using the 25 Crovie wheelbarrow to bring your possessions down from the car park!

The owners also own the cottage next door and may be able to offer fishing trips and lobster creel expeditions when they are staying here.

About the location


Gardenstown 1.6 miles.

The small village of Crovie is not only pretty but is also quite unique as no vehicles can drive through the village and access to the single line of cottages is via a path that borders the sea. Vehicles are left at a car park at the start of the village. A one time busy fishing village it is now a peaceful retreat for visitors who love the charm and gentle ambience of the community. Crovie faces west onto the Moray Firth and in the summer fabulous sunsets can be enjoyed whilst in the winter months the Northern Lights can sometimes be seen. Although a real retreat Crovie is close to the many atmospheric fishing villages all along the north east coastline each with their own history and well worth a visit.
