  • "We loved staying in this cottage."

    It was clean and modern. It was in an ideal location and we could always find somewhere to park a little further along the street. When we next go to Elgin we are extremely likely to book this cottage again.

  • "We had a lovely stay at the neuk."

    Welcome pack was much appreciated. Very handy for town and cooper park. Would be nice if back garden was paved but thats a minor quibble.

  • "We spent a lovely week in 'the Neuk'."

    We struggled with the amount of daylight that came in through the wooden blinds. It was a last minute booking, so if I had realised beforehand I would have been prepared with some blackout curtains. The washing line could do with the bush next to it being cut as it is currently making the line out of action. Luckily their was an airer supplied so I just put that outside to dry clothes. Some plastic plates/cups would be handy. We never are outside as I didn't want to risk anything getting broken (I was travelling with 2 children). The property itself was lovely and spacious. Water runs out of the corner of the shower so be careful if you don't put the mat down properly. Loved our stay, unfortunately the kids fought too much sharing the double bed so I'm not sure we wil be back. But will definitely recommend to friends

  • "Thank you so much."

    I enjoyed my stay at The Neuk. It was very cosy. The cottage was an absolutely lovely find. Close to the city centre. Very neat and well furnished and the nice touch of complimentary Tea, Coffee, Wine and Shortbread was a pleasant surprise. I would definitely be using your service again.

  • "Great property."

    Spotless. All necessary equipment. Very helpful host responds quickly to texts. All single storey but does have quite steep steps at gate entrance.

  • "The accommodation was first class exactly as the pictures provided."

    This was the second time I have used Sykes and would definitely do so again. One point to pass on to the owners. Recycle bins where provided outside but no info on when they needed to be put out for collection by the local council was provided. They had not been emptied for some time judging by the fill levels. Also small waste bins in the bedrooms would be very useful.But the standard of everything else was spot on.

  • "Ultra clean!"

    The wee hoose was great. Decent shower and kitchen. Good tv. Outdoor area could do with paving. We enjoyed ourselves hugely. Only one gripe. The beds are not king size as advertised. Being 6’2” I would not have booked this property had I known they were standard doubles. Apart from that, would do it all again. Thank you.

  • "The Neuk was very comfortable, nicely decorated and spotlessly clean."

    Elgin is a great base from which to explore the area & The Neuk was close to the town centre shopping & dining too.

  • "This is a fantastic apartment that has clearly been the subject of a no expense spared renovation."

    The facilities are excellent and Elgin is a great base for exploring this part of Northern Scotland. The beaches are amazing and you will get the chance to see dolphins, seals and birds. Just one minor point. The description describes the bedrooms as king size. The beds are in fact only double beds so be aware of this. Apart from this, this apartment is a great place to stay.

The property

Lossiemouth 5.6 miles.

A homely mid-terrace cottage resting at the centre of Elgin in Scotland, this all-ground-floor dwelling makes a welcoming base for a group of four looking for a scenic escape.

With amenities within walking distance and the coast just a short driving distance, there's no better base from which to discover Scotland.

Move through the front, shared gate and step inside to the spacious hallway and hang up your coats before heading into the sitting room to begin your relaxing retreat snuggled up together on the sofas in front of the television for a quiet evening indoors before your fun-filled days ahead.

To the rear of the property you will find the kitchen/diner, offering plenty of space for everyone to sit together and toast to a wonderful holiday on your couple's retreat, while the chef of the group gets to work in preparing a lovingly-made meal with the help of the good range of appliances on offer.

At the end of a day of excitement, seek comfort in one of the two inviting king-size bedrooms, with ample storage space for your personal belongings and a contemporary interior, these two bright and airy spaces are perfect for catching up on your rest.

Begin your day with a refreshing rinse in the stylish shower room, before heading out to the rear garden to soak in the sun with a coffee in hand.

Sitting at the centre of Elgin, you'll find everything you could need on your doorstep from the simplicities of shops and eateries to a selection of museums, gardens to explore and the River Lossie to roam; a truly scenic experience.

Heading further afield you can find the coast of Lossiemouth, here you can get lost in a game of golf, bathe in the golden sands or simply soak in your scenery on this idyllic getaway.
