"The best cottage we've stayed in"
TRIP ADVISOR TRAVELERS' CHOICE AWARD WINNER
YOU ARE: 15 MINUTES FROM THE BEACH
1 MINUTE FROM WONDERFUL WALKS
AND A FEW MINUTES AWAY FROM BOOKING A GREAT HOLIDAY
Scotland is magical offering you amazing scenery, fairytale castles, marvellous mountains, rushing rivers, beautiful beaches, fabulous local produce and history - lots and lots of history!
Set on over 350 acres and among the stunning scenery of the North East of Scotland, you'll find Garden Cottage matches the photos, the rooms are light and bright and the towels are big and fluffy. There's no hidden extras and we even provide "the little things" such as washing powder, dishwasher tablets and binbags. Oh, and not forgetting logs if you'd like to light the wood burner or fire pit.
We are Graded 4* by Visit Scotland and based on the reviews of guests recently became a Travelers's Choice Award Winner on Trip Advisor.
Renovated throughout in February 2023 this detached single level cottage has a large parking area and a fantastic private garden. In full sun for most of the day, you can enjoy a leisurely breakfast or barbeque on the patio, walk on the farm and spot some of our local wildlife including red and roe deer. There's also plenty of outdoor storage for bikes in the adjoining outhouses as well as an area where you can hose them down or wash your car.
Garden Cottage is on a quiet family run farm and is neutrally decorated throughout with everything you need.
Well situated for exploring amazing the historical castles, beautiful country houses or tucked away coastal fishing villages. Follow the Malt Whisky Trails, visit sites from the popular Outlander series, play golf at one of the excellent nearby golf courses, pop along to the Turriff Swimming Pool or enjoy some great fishing and shooting - all are within easy reach.
Pack a picnic (there's a basket and a roll along cooler for your use in the cottage) and relax on a beautiful nearby beach, some of which are award winning, at Balmedie, Inverboyndie, Cullen, Fraserburgh, Banff, Findhorn, Hopeman or hidden Cullykhan Cove.
The small villages of New Pitsligo, Strichen and Cumminestown are a short drive while Turriff, which is 7 miles away, offers a larger selection of shops including Tesco, the Co-Op and Costcutter supermarkets. There's also a couple of excellent butchers, banks, hairdressers, beauticians, clothes shops, coffee shops, independant local shops and restaurants.

Garden Cottage has a large 27ft x 18ft (7mtrs x 5.5) open plan living/kitchen/dining area with new flooring, a wood burning stove, TV with Freeview and a mini Google Nest. The large dining table seats 6 comfortably and double doors from the lounge area lead onto the patio.
The well equipped kitchen has a dishwasher, microwave, coffee machine, fridge, electric cooker and an excellent selection of cooking utensils, pans and crockery.
The cottage sleeps four very comfortably in two bedrooms, both of which have recently installed Super King Sized beds (the second bedroom can be turned into a twin if required). There's also a z-bed which is suitable for very young children, up to age 6 only, but please note this will reduce floor space considerably. Both bedrooms have a wardrobe, chest of drawers, 2 bedside tables and there's also a hairdryer in each bedroom. The end bedroom has an ensuite shower room and there's a bathroom, with shower over the bath, next to the second bedroom.
The utility room has a washing machine and separate dryer as well as a freezer. There is also an outdoor drying facility. Lots of space for coats and boots in the front porch and if you're bringing bikes we have plenty of dry outhouses where they can be safely stored. Thanks to the installation of an enviromentally friendly biomass boiler the cottage is wonderfully warm throughout 24/7.
Weather permitting, on the patio there's a bbq and a table with 4 chairs. There are also 2 loungers and a wooden bench seat (which has outdoor toys stored in the seat). In the lower cottage garden you'll find the fire pit (logs supplied) with a couple of Adirondack chairs as well as a picnic table so bring those marshmallows!
The cottage has free Wi Fi. Linen, towels, electricity, heating and logs are all included in the price. PLEASE NOTE electric car charging is NOT included in the rental rate. If you'd list to charge, please let us know and we'll check the daily rate with our supplier and let you know the cost.
Two well behaved dogs are very welcome, we do not charge extra for your dog/s, but please let us know at time of booking if you're bringing your pet/s with you and as consideration to other guests we ask they stay within the main living area in the cottage and don't go into the bedrooms.
