  • "The cottage was comfortable & spotlessly clean on arrival."

    It was so peaceful but for the sound of the sea...just what we needed for a relaxing holiday. The cottage was in a great place for exploring the beautuful coast.

  • "I found the staircase horrendous, ( you should hilight that this is incredibly narrow, steep & stairs are not deep for fet larger than size six)."

    Also the height of doors entering bedrooms & lack of room height in bedroom ( i had to crawl into bed ) I am a 6' 3" man in my mid 50s & had to visit the bathroom several times each night ( which was absolutely ridiculous trying to manage all these hazards I have stated ) plus the fact how far away the bathroom actually was . I really feel this should be detailed to future potential renters . P. Crockford

  • "We had the best week at 49 crovie village."

    The cottage was cosy, warm and homely-we especially loved the kitchen area. Going to sleep and waking up to the sound of the sea was so lovely and peaceful. The most perfect destination for much needed r and r. We loved our daily walk to gardenstown along the sea-lovely cafe and pub and harbour and beach. Crovie itself was like nowhere else we have ever been-friendly and true escapism. Our children especially loved using the wheelbarrow for transportation. We will definitely return ❤️

  • "I have been to this cottage three times now."

    I just love it! A fabulous cottage, well appointed with everything you might need, wifi etc and even Netflix! But the scenery is awesome, and its wonderful to be so close to the sea in any weather. However some glorious hot weather on my last stay there (early May), fabulous sunsets every night. Well worth a stay.

  • "Crovie is a wonderful place to visit, even in the middle of winter, and No."

    49 is an excellent base. It's well-equipped and comfortable. Needless to say, it's quiet, apart from the waves which are a pleasure in themselves. You can enjoy the wildness and beauty of the North Sea coast with only a handful of steps from the front door before popping back inside to re-warm by the fire. I loved it.

    The village itself is just the best place for 'stepping off the world' and being right next to the sea is amazing.

  • "The cottage was very much as described."

    We were very impressed with the quality of the work that had been involved to get it to its current standard and that attention to detail was continued in the fixtures and fittings. We had no issues at all during our stay and the welcome gifts were really appreciated and got our honeymoon off to a great start! Many thanks and we look forward to a return visit in the future.

    Having a wood burner was a real plus especially on the colder evenings. It wasn't cold enough or necessary to use the radiators and having a fire took the chill off and made No 49 really cosy.

The property

A characterful and quirky fisherman's cottage nestling between the base of the cliffs at the rear and the open sea to the front in the small village of Crovie.

A pathway runs along the shoreline giving pedestrian access to this row of charming cottages and the hustle and bustle of daily life is left far behind!

49 Crovie Village is a typical cottage with its gable end to the sea and quirky interior and would be ideal for a couple or small family group who want to spend carefree days walking along the rocky foreshore, watching the wonderful wildlife and soaking up the special uniqueness of the location.

There are two lovely bedrooms on the first floor both with sloping ceilings and skylight windows and the ground floor is modern and spacious.

A lovely open plan and well-equipped kitchen/dining room leads through to a cosy sitting room with a welcoming woodburning stove ensuring cosy nights in around the fire after an active day.

There are no local services in Crovie but the neighbouring and larger village of Gardenstown is just over a mile away and here there is a well-stocked village shop and local pub/restaurant.

A very pleasant walk on a good day is following the path from Crovie to Gardenstown to pick up essentials and then a return journey with different views.

The north east coast is dotted with many villages and small towns all worth a visit and the bigger towns of Banff and MacDuff offer excellent local services.

For wildlife lovers a visit to the RSPB reserve at Troup Head is a must and of course boat trips onto the Moray Firth will ensure a good view of the famous dolphins as they pass by.

This is a special cottage in a unique location ensuring an unforgettable holiday for all.

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.
