  • "Best bit - having the top garden to yourself when the gate is closed."

    But for some unfathomable reason they lock the middle gates, to keep you out of the best bit. Its a big old rambling house. Very clean, nice and tidy. The chairs and beds were all comfy. Needs some cushions in the living room though. Bed linen and towels excellent. The kitchen is excellent. Dining room very good. Bath and shower rooms range from good to excellent. Some of the light bulbs are a bit dim, but OK. Heating took some fiddling with to get right, its mostly storage heaters that take time to warm up. We are used to these and had no problems getting it pleasant. Also has some oil filled radiators that we needed. Scotland is not warm in early May. Wi-fi works OK. We streamed music upstairs with no problem, but video only worked properly on ground floor, and didn't stretch to the dining room, kitchen or upstairs. Something like a TP-Link Booster Powerline Kit would solve that easily, but we had left ours at home. Had to log in to video call to deal with issue at work, and that worked fine in the living room. Easiest route is from A90 via Ellon. Where Brew-Dog have their brewery and an excellent bar. Supermarkets and fuel all close enough to not be a problem. Loads of restaurants and pubs. Good walks.

    Thank you very much for your kind words about the North Wing at Pitmedden. We will pass on your comments to the team at Pitmedden so they are aware of the dim bulbs and the need for some cushions. Thank you also for the tip about the Booster for the wifi, we will look into it. Property Owner

  • "Overall this is an excellent place to stay and we would highly recommend it."

    A few suggestions that would enhance the stay further: provide an enhanced selection of pans for cooking; add extra padding to seat cushions in sitting room; provide some instructions for the heating system.

  • "This place is awesome."

    Set in gorgeous grounds, it's a real dream come true. Lots of room, and an extra special surprise was that the double beds are more like superking beds. Positives: - Having access to the amazing gardens for example when eating breakfast is out of this world - If you end up bumping into them, the staff at Pitmedden are lovely - Ample private parking - Lovely walks - Cute town and very well stocked Co-op within walking distance - Loads of room - Very well equipped kitchen - Huge dining table, great for board games - We only used the master bedroom, but the bed was extremely comfortable - So quiet in the evenings & no light pollution whatsoever - We saw bunnies and deer outside on the lawn in the evening Slight negatives: - As someone else mentioned, the wi-fi signal doesn't penetrate much beyond the living room and master bedroom, so bear that in mind if that's an issue for you. Possibly not an issue for people who are on a better mobile network than us (three) - The chairs and sofa in the living room are old and pretty uncomfortable. If you have back issues etc you might want to consider bringing an extra cushion It's such an unusual place to stay - super memorable. We would stay here again in a heartbeat.

    Many thanks for your kind comments about your stay at Pitmedden. The seating is part of the heritage of the property but we are exploring if we can refurbish the internal parts of the suite to make it more comfortable. Property Owner

  • "The pictures do not justify how big the property is."

    The use of the gardens was another added bonus. We also had an unexpected tribute band play on our last night which we were able to attend for free. Absolutely amazing experience. We have already recommended this fabulous holiday home to family who have booked for later this year. Would definitely return.

    Thank you so much for your kind words and for the recommendation to your family. Property Owner

  • "We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and the gardens were beautiful and the museum very interesting."

    A very good hub for exploring the surrounding area. Some minor points that didn’t really affect our stay but may be worthwhile attending to for future guests 1. No coal left for first night and fire left full of ashes. We did not use it. 2. Wash hand basin in master bedroom is not plumbed in and is for show. This is misleading in advert. 3. Shower in shower room is cold. It doesn’t heat up. We did report it on site but said we could live with it. Wifi does not extend to bedrooms. Repeaters would fix this. These are not complaints but, I hope, useful feedback as we had a great stay and would not hesitate to recommend it to anyone

    Thank you for your feedback, just to confirm we leave wood for the fire and not coal. We have asked the cleaners to ensure that the fire is cleared of ashes on each changeover day. We have asked Sykes to amend the description of the twin room to remove mention of a wash hand basin. We are looking into replacing the shower. Unfortunately with many solid stone building there is little we can do to improve the wifi signal. Property Owner

Pitmedden Garden Cottages

Set within the charming, rural village of Pitmedden in Aberdeenshire, are these two enchanting properties, Beechgrove Cottage and North Wing (North Wing launching in Spring 2021), presenting a group of eleven guests welcoming accommodation for a relaxing country retreat to north-east Scotland. Sitting amidst the wondrous National Trust for Scotland Pitmedden Garden, this pair of properties offers natural splendour to explore all-year-round, including flora and fauna aplenty and picturesque picnic spots. Delight in the best of both worlds with luscious rolling countryside in all directions, as well as being within easy reach of the coast at Newburgh and Aberdeen. Sir Alexander Seton initially created Pitmedden Garden in 1675, but following a fire, the design plans were lost, and in the 1950s National Trust for Scotland set about restoring the gardens to their former glory, using the garden at Edinburgh's Palace of Holyroodhouse as inspiration for the reconstruction. Marvel at the present-day beauty of five miles of immaculate boxwood hedging, creating intricate patterns that weave through the grounds, with over 80 varieties of apple grown here accompanied by elegant fountains offering the tranquil sounds of flowing water, it's a truly idyllic place. Adjacent to Pitmedden House is the Museum of Farming Life, telling the history of the local area and home to fascinating agricultural artefacts, great for any history lovers. The village of Pitmedden itself has all you need for a self-catered stay, with a handful of amenities including a local shop and pub, while the surrounding area is teeming with more wonderful attractions like the sprawling Georgian country mansion of Haddo House, another National Trust for Scotland-owned property near the ancient village of Tarves, while around 20 miles away is the regal Fyvie Castle. Venture over to the coast at Newburgh to go seal spotting at Newburgh Seal Beach, or head into the 'Granite City' of Aberdeen, where a host of restaurants, bars and waterside attractions await. Discover a peaceful retreat in Aberdeenshire at Pitmedden Garden Cottages.
