  • "This cottage is beautiful."

    Perfect for a family holiday. It is super clean and kitted out with everything you would need. A very short walk to the beach. We loved our stay at 61 Seatown and will definitely be back!

    Thank you for your lovely review. We are so glad you enjoyed your time at 61 Seatown and look forward to you returning. Thanks again Pete & Karen Property Owner

  • "Beautiful property that is well maintained and very clean."

    The only downside we had was specific to our family. Would happily book again however we have a 2 year old so only having a shower and no bath isn't ideal for us personally. If you have children that are happy to have showers then its perfect. High recommend.

  • "Very well presented and equipped cottage in a beautiful location."

    Due to the nature of the original building, low doors are a hazard and the stairs would prove difficult for the fittest.

  • "61 Seatown is a really beautiful cottage, decorated to a very high standard and has everything you need."

    It was welcoming and comfortable and was the perfect place to stay. We were warm and cosy and enjoyed every minute of our stay. It wasn't a problem for us, but, the steep stairs may be an issue for some, so best to be aware. The only little thing which I would have appreciated was a dressing table and mirror by the window in the main bedroom or even a small table and mirror just to do hair and make-up. This is not a criticism just something that I personally would have found very useful. 61 Seatown was a perfect place to stay and we look forward to returning to this 'little gem' of a cottage very soon. Cullen itself is wonderful. The cottage is 2 minutes from the beach and harbour and is surrounded by great walks and scenery. The town itself has everything you need and everybody is very friendly. Cullen and the cottage make for a lovely relaxing holiday and we can't wait to return.

  • "Cullen is well worth a visit."

    Beautiful scenery and lots to enjoy outdoors. It has captured our hearts and this quaint, cosy, comfortable and well equipped cottage was ideal for us.

    Reviewed by LibbyOct 2021

  • "One of the best appointed cottages we have stayed in."

    One thing that should be noted is that due to very steep stairs, it would not be suitable for less able people. Also the house is situated 50 meters from the junction not 500 meters as stated. Also the house is behind number 63 and can not be seen from the road.

  • "The best holiday we've had in a long time!"

    Cottage was beautiful and absolute spotless and a minute from the beach. Very comfortable and welcoming. Nice welcome pack waiting for us on arrival. Our first time in this part of Scotland and well worth the long drive. Cullen was beautiful, clean sandy beaches and such friendly people. There were no crowds and parking was so easy everywhere we went. Magnificent views from the cliff top walks up to Bow Fiddle Rock. We, and our dog, had a great time. Would highly recommend to anyone looking for a peaceful holiday away from the crowds and traffic of Devon and Cornwall. We will definitely go again.

  • "The cottage was so cosy, comfortable and very clean."

    It had everything we could possibly have needed for a wee Highland break. Cullen is beautiful! This is our first Sykes vacation and we’re very impressed with the standard and ease of the booking, direction given and the follow up. Well done Sykes! We have already made another booking for July in Cornwall and so glad it also has been done through Sykes.

    Immaculate, cosy cottage, very well equipped and tastefully decorated. With the beautiful beach literally on the doorstep, this was a great find. Felt a million miles away!

  • "61 Seatown was a very nice place to stay it was cosy clean, tidy, nicely decorated [ loved the nautical theme] and very well equipped."

    The location was for me ideal close to the beach, plenty of historic fishing villages with harbours and fishing boats and a short drive to some distilleries . The welcome package of wine and shortbread was much appreciated. I would have no hesitation in recommending this cottage.

  • "I was misled by the photos of the outside side of the cottage ."

    It was made to look like it was standing alone . I also thought the photos of the beach were actually views from the cottage . Therefore I was disappointed when we arrived and discovered the cottage was completely boxed in and there was absolutely no view at all. Otherwise the cottage was beautiful and well equipped. Very comfortable and clean .

The property

A stone's throw away from the harbour and long, glorious, sandy beach where children can play safely and everyone can appreciate the area, is where you will find the the former fisherman's cottage, 61 Seatown.

This charming dwelling is well-equipped for a couple or a family of four seeking to explore the rugged Moray Firth, carved by sandy beaches, plentiful sea and wildlife, and excellent walking opportunities.

Inside boasts a refreshing interior, carefully selected furnishings, quality features and several touches of nautical reminders to reflect your wonderful surroundings.

The designated chef of the group will be delighted to find a well-equipped kitchen, which comes with everything you could possibly need to whip up delicious home-cooked meals.

After dinner, look forward to gathering within the brightly decorated sitting room which is warmed by the roaring woodburning stove, creating the perfect setting for unwinding after an action-packed afternoon.

As the evening draws to a close, venture up the narrow staircase (which is a feature of many Seatown cottages) to find two well-presented bedrooms, comprising of a double and a twin, with both offering charming interiors, quality linens and ample storage to house your holiday essentials.

During a balmy afternoon, look forward to enjoying a spot of alfresco dining upon the front patio whilst you soak up the soundtrack of your coastal surroundings.

If you don’t feel like cooking one evening, a short walk will bring you to a selection of takeaways, restaurants and bars, ensuring something to suit all ages and tastes.

Attractions within the town include walking along the picturesque harbour before soaking up the sun at the sandy beach, alternatively spend an afternoon at Cullen Links Golf Club.

Further afield attractions include the natural sea arch of Bow Fiddle Rock, Logie Head and walking along the coast where you may catch glimpses of dolphins, seals and magnificent seabirds.

61 Seatown promises to be a refreshing break for the whole family.

About the location

CULLEN

Elgin 21 miles.

The Moray coastal town of Cullen is situated on Cullen Bay, an inlet of the Moray Firth, and is an extremely attractive town, originally built around the mouth of the Burn of Deskford. Modern Cullen comprises the delightful fishing village of Seatown and an ‘inland’ area, which stretches up an imposing main street from Seatown, underneath a spectacular viaduct. Although the wealth of Cullen was built on textiles in the 18th century, the town is best known for its fishing heritage, its name being given to a rich, creamy haddock soup known as Cullen Skink. Visitors can enjoy Cullen’s lovely sandy beach, the famous Ice Cream Shop, regarded by many as Scotland’s best ice cream parlour, a fine selection of shops and restaurants, and the historic city of Elgin is within driving distance.
