About the Owner
About Jan Hickman
Ian & I moved to Scotland in 2010 from Southern England, to semi-retire. We live at Hillview with our 2 dogs, a 12 year old Labrador, 5 year old lab/cross. 2 cats, 4 hens.
Jan Hickman purchased this cottage in 2010
Why Jan Hickman chose Moray
We found Hillview one evening whilst out for a drive. One of the reasons we purchased this property was the large kitchen with outstanding views across the countryside. The area is mainly agricultural with fields of barley surrounding us and it's lovely in September watching all the harvesting going on. Springtime is also lovely seeing all the new born lambs in the area. We are only 4 miles from the sandy beaches of Cullen, where you can often see the dolphins swimming in the summer.
What makes this cottage unique
Peace and tranquility, we welcome well mannered pets. Building is all on one floor for anybody who has difficulties with stairs.

We had a great time staying at Hillview - the cottage is cosy but with a modern kitchen and all the facilities you would need on a holiday. The kitchen, bathroom and bedrooms were well equipped and clean, and Ian and Jan were very welcoming and helpful without being intrusive.
I can thoroughly recommend this cottage which is located in Deskford an ideal location for visiting the Moray coast and beyond. I stayed here with my mother who is wheelchair bound and the spacious layout of the property made it easy to manoeuvre her around inside. The property is clean and well maintained and kitchen is well equipped . Jan & Ian are welcoming hosts .

Hillview Bothy is a real home from home situated in Deskford. This is ideal for visiting the Moray Coastline and the inland whisky trails.
Although pet friendly, (which is important for us) the Bothy is clean, bright and very modern. It is well furnished and has all the kitchen equipment you will need. No need to take the kitchen sink.😄 Ian and Jan the owners are wonderful people who make you feel very welcome. A tray of home baking, teas, coffee and a carton of milk await your arrival.
We have stayed there 5 times and love the peaceful atmosphere of the countryside but know that we are not far from the rolling coastline. Best of both worlds. I would totally recommend this beautiful holiday home.
Beautiful Cottage... Stunning Location...
We had a fabulous stay in this cottage which has absolutely everything you need to enjoy your break. We were greeted to a warm welcome from Jan to include delicious homebaking plus all basic essentials - milk, tea and coffee. The decor is lovely and the beds very comfy. There is plenty outdoor space to enjoy the stunning views and Cullen is only a five minute drive away. We took our four legged friend with us and the garden was very secure with plenty of lovely walks nearby. There is excellent wi fi provision too. I would highly recommend a stay here and will be back!

Home from home lovely Cottage - really spacious, clean with everything you need. Fabulous views across the rolling hills of Deskford. Only about 3 miles from the seaside at Cullen.
Nothing was too much trouble for Jan and Ian. There's even a washing machine so you don't have to pack loads of clothes!
warm welcome...great stay..beautiful view
We had the warmest welcome at this beautiful cottage by the Owners Jan & Ian, who ensured nothing was to much trouble and greeted us with home made cakes and scones. ..and not forgetting our 4 legged friends Holly & Jet.
The cottage has everything you need for the most comfortable stay and a lovely countryside location means all of Moray's beautiful scenery and villages are near to hand.
For your comfort and pleasure the dining table is situated to give you spectacular country views whilst you dine.
There are 2 Bedrooms which we found freshly decorated with pristine cleanliness and both able to accommodate 2 easily.
The shower room /bathroom, is probably one of the best I have used during any break.
We will definitely be returning again and would recommend anyone visiting the area to pay Hill View Cottage a visit...enjoy.
