    “Lovely old quite spacious cottage in the middle of ancient woodlands only 5 mins by car from Stonehaven .”

    Great, interesting easy walks around the Woods to find Lady Kennedy’s Bath and the Ice House etc. Stonehaven and surrounding area was beautiful, stunning in places . ...

    Great, interesting easy walks around the Woods to find Lady Kennedy’s Bath and the Ice House etc. Stonehaven and surrounding area was beautiful, stunning in places . We were missing some towels and the ones we had were very thin and quite small, some of the electrical ceiling light fittings were open , cleaning could have been better ( found 3 random socks from previous guests along with some grape stalks and a bit of a puzzle ). As per previous reviews the kitchen could be better equipped ( no fruit bowl or salad bowl ) but the beds were very comfy and plenty of hot water . The door code on your e mails say two different numbers , which confused us on leaving and it is the only Sykes cottage we have stayed in where there is no starter pack for the fire, no leaflets or visitors book and no welcome pack. We would go back there but it is a shame I would have loved to give it 5 stars all round, as it is in a great place and quite big, and it wouldn’t take much to improve it at all .

The property

Settled amidst enchanting woodland on the outskirts of Stonehaven, a bustling seaside town on Scotland's east coast, is this lovely stone-built mid-terrace cottage, 3 Dunnottar Square.

Offering five guests a homely base, this quaint cottage is ideal for a family or friends seeking outdoor adventures and tranquil settings.

Enter into the kitchen/diner to find a country-style layout with wooden cupboards and a farmhouse dining table, perfect for coming together at the end of the day with the evening meal simmering on the hob while a bottle of wine is shared around the table.

Settle down in the pretty sitting room and let the open fire warm you on a cool evening while you watch the TV, choosing from the sofa or armchairs to relax on.

A cloakroom completes the ground-floor layout, with the first floor home to three delightful bedrooms, with the single and twin rooms featuring sloping ceilings with Velux windows.

The master bedroom benefits from a double bed and an en-suite shower room, while the family bathroom hosting a bath with an overhead shower serves the other guests.

Sit out in the communal courtyard in the summer months grabbing some morning fresh air before setting off on a morning walk in the local area, with the beautiful Dunnottar Woods on your doorstep, you'll have no shortage of walking options.

Walk out to the picturesque ruins of Dunnottar Castle resting on a dramatic clifftop setting overlooking the North Sea for incredible views, sure to be a history lover's dream thanks to the rich heritage the castle is home to, once home to one of the most powerful families in Scotland.

Continue along the Aberdeenshire Coastal Trail up to Stonehaven, passing the Stonehaven War Memorial, and stop in at one of the excellent cafés, restaurants or pubs for a refreshment before seeing more of this bustling seaside resort.

Head out on a sea safari to see puffins, seals and even dolphins, go swimming in the Olympic size heated open-air swimming pool on the seafront and visit Stonehaven's beach.

The picture-perfect Crathes Castle, a National Trust for Scotland property, is a scenic drive away and offers a great day out walking around the extensive grounds and exploring the 16th century castle turrets and towers.

Enjoy a fabulous stay in Abderdeenshire at 3 Dunnottar Square.

About the location


Aberdeen 15 miles.

Formerly the county town of Kincardineshire, Stonehaven is a resort town, set in a sheltered position where the Carron Water and the Cowie Water empty into the North Sea. This attractive seaside resort, with heated open-air Olympic size swimming pool and 18 hole golf course, has a picturesque and sheltered harbour, busy with sailing yachts. The Tolbooth Museum is a notable building situated on the quayside, and the great fortress of Dunnottar Castle (whose origins date from the 11th Century) is situated on the sheer 160 foot cliff tops to the south of the town. Close at hand, Fowlsheugh RSPB Seabird Colony is home to the largest seabird colony in mainland Britain, and is well worth a visit. Stonehaven also boasts a fine selection of shops, hotels and restaurants to suit all tastes, as well as offering great opportunities to hike, cycle, walk, ride or even ski! With the amenities of Aberdeen within an easy drive, this is a great location for exploring all that this lovely part of Scotland has to offer.
