About the property

Situated directly on the Moray Firth in an area of natural beauty.

This superb holiday cottage in the conservation Seatown area of Gardenstown was originally a fisherman's cottage, built in the 19th century and is directly on the Moray Firth seafront.

The cottage is ideal for a family of four, or a couple looking for an away from it all break. It is not ideally suited for two couples.

Lie in bed listening to the sound of the waves lapping at the sea wall directly below you. The property was modernised in 2015 and features; a lounge with three sea view windows; large eating kitchen; bathroom with bath and shower over and upstairs one double bedroom and a twin bedroom.

Features include a wood burning stove; Wi-Fi; Egyptian cotton bedding; 40" flat screen wall mounted television; bose bluetooth music unit and of course stunning sea views. Look out for the school of dolphins in the Moray Firth, which if you are fortunate could be viewed from inside the cottage. We provide a viewing scope to maximise your chances... as well as a set of binoculars.

The kitchen has a dining table for four; washing machine; fridge/freezer; oven and hob etc.

Situated at the bottom of sandstone cliffs, Gardenstown was founded in 1744 and the harbour now caters for small fishing vessels and pleasure boats.

The small winding streets, picturesque harbour and old stone fisherman's cottages seem untouched by time and the spectacular views, headland and bays round the village make a haven for artists, photographers and bird watchers, while the sandy beaches and rocky coves and pools make it a location for all ages.

Bookings are weekly on a Saturday to Saturday basis. Sorry, we do not allow pets.

Cosy, comfortable and a fabulous location.

  • 4 of 5

The cottage has obviously been extensively modernised from what must have been a pretty basic fisherman's cottage. It is very small, but ideal for a couple, and has everything needed for a comfortable stay. It is spotlessly clean and well maintained, and the location is fantastic, with wonderful views: especially at sunset. Gardenstown itself is lovely, but with few amenities. However the wonderfully kind, friendly and generous local people more than make up for that. We will definitely consider returning.

Super Lage, toller Ort, das Haus etwas klein.

  • 4 of 5

Das Cottage liegt traumhaft, direkt am Wasser in einem kleinen alten Fischerort. Wir haben uns dort sehr wohl gefühlt. Das Cottage ist klein und die Einrichtung ein wenig zusammen gewürfelt. Dafür hat man aber einen wunderschönen Blick aufs Meer mit tollen Sonnenuntergängen.
