The Bothy is a charming self-catering holiday cottage providing excellent accommodation for two people in the village of Pitmedden. In a peaceful rural location at the end of a private road, yet only 12 miles from Aberdeen, the Bothy is also close to some of the best beaches in the North East of Scotland. The Bothy is a fantastic little gem which has been completely modernised but retains the original stone wall as a feature in the bedroom which uniquely has a log burning stove. A perfect place to tuck up in bed with a good book, or sit in a chair and simply contemplate the garden. Private parking for one car. Newly installed oil fired Central Heating throughout included in the price.
As a family we've had many holidays in self-catering accommodation. I understand how important the little things are in making a holiday cottage enjoyable and memorable. We make it our business to provide you with spotless accommodation, a warm welcome, and a commitment to making sure you enjoy your stay with us. Our visitor feedback tells us we're doing just that!
Martha Simpson purchased this cottage in 2010
Pitmedden is a lovely rural village well positioned for enjoying the fantastic beaches of the North East of Scotland. There are 17 castles in Aberdeenshire, a great Coastal Trail, and we are near the Whisky Trail. Although it has country feel to it, it is only 16 miles to the vibrant city of Aberdeen, although best loved for its access to the sea on the east, and the mountains in the west of the area.
The cottage is at the end of a private road. It is a truly peaceful oasis, and the addition of the log burning stove in the bedroom means you can tuck up with a good book at any time of the year. We have recently installed central heating as we continue to make it the perfect getaway.
We have really enjoyed our stay at the Bothy. It’s been warm and comfortable and so peaceful. We have stayed in the area on numerous occasions but had no idea that you could see the seals at Newburgh. The seals are still there in their hundreds! We’ve been very lucky during our stay to see eagles, deer, stoats and pine martens. Will recommend the Bothy to friends and family.
We thoroughly enjoyed our short stay. The cottage was was ideal for our stay in the area. We were greeted by the owner Martha and she was great with everything
My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. Very clean, comfortable, peaceful place to stay.
Martha, the owner, lives next door and couldn't have been more welcoming and helpful.
Despite mixed weather, we have been out and about every day. Visited 3 National Trust properties – Haddo, Leith Hall and of course, Pitmedden Garden. Enjoyed nearby deserted beaches and woodland walks. Most amazing sight of the week was a colony of hundreds of seals (no exaggeration!) on a sandbank in the Ythan Estuary. Thanks to Martha & Jim for making us feel welcome. The welcome tray on arrival set the tone for the whole week!” The Bothy lacked on site freezer and washing machine.which for the price we would have expected.
This was our second visit to this delightful property. The owner Martha had left us a welcome afternoon tea complete with Scotch Pancakes, Freddo Frog chocolates for our grandaughter and Tunnocks chocolate mallows delicious. The cottage is well maintained very comfortable and cosy. We had dreadful weather during our visit but we loved coming home to this lovely warm cottage at the end of the day. During this visit we went Dolphin watching with the RSPB at Torry Battery, our grandaughter loved this. Drive a little further along the coast to Downies farm, a rare breeds farm a lovely place to visit with children. The Bothy has become part of our annual visit to Aberdeen we will definately return.
We had a lovely stay, well equipped kitchen, very cosy, we had fab weather for the time of year... so didn't get to use the wood burner but we SO wanted to, logs were provided, extremely comfortable bed sleep better than at home, would definitely recommend this bothy for a short or long stay, I can say we will definitely be returning, Martha was lovely very welcoming and happy to help, fabulous anniversary meal on her recommendation, thanks for a lovely stay, karen & Paul x
