Cottage With Secure Garden, Wood Burning Stove And Sea Views



Updated: 02-Oct-2016
Cottage in St Cyrus, Montrose, Central Scotland - Peaceful Location, Right On The Beach.

Seagreens Cottage can be found at the end of quiet road right on the beach. It is a cosy semi detached property which has a large secure garden to the rear and uninterrupted views of the sea. Seagreens is located between the villages of St Cyrus and Johnshaven. It is 7 miles North of Montrose, and 30 miles South of Aberdeen. Ideally situated for walking, fishing and golf and exploring the beautiful surroundings. The cottage has free wifi available for guests to use.

There are two bedrooms in the cottage, one double and one twin. There is also space for a travel cot if required. There is a good sized bathroom with a separate shower and bath with a heated towel rail and underfloor heating. The living room has two comfy sofas and a wood burning stove, along with a selection of books, dvds and games. The kitchen is well equipped with a microwave, kettle toaster and a washing machine. There is also a tumble drier out in the side building where the bbq is stored. We have recently installed a hot tub on the patio which is available for guests to use for £25 per visit - this covers the cost of the chemicals and towels.

The cottage is surrounded by beautiful coastal scenery, perfect for walking and exploring or simply relaxing.

My name is Claire and I have 2 small children who attend the local nursery. I do all the day to day running of the cottage, as well as the cleaning which allows me to ensure that everything is up to standard.

An artists paradise

Local family for cheeky little winter break. This cottage is a little gem set away from the main road sitting on a scenic Aberdeenshire beach. It is well equipped for elderly and disabled people. Loads to do and see but the views are so spectacular that doing nothing is acceptable! Log fire an extra bonus. Will be back.

Beautiful property in a stunning location. A true 'secret gem'. The pictures don't do it justice. Views to die for from most windows. We were joined by a seal on the last day!

The owner, Claire, is lovely and very helpful. The place was extremely well kitted out and spotlessly clean.

We will be going back and recommending this to anyone thinking of going to Scotland, but hopefully not when we want to go!

A real gem and no mistake

  • 5 of 5

I cannot praise this cottage enough. The location is superb and the cottage itself is well furnished , very clean and warm . Add to this an owner who is very hospitable and knowledgeable about the area and you have all the ingredients for a great holiday. My husband is a salmon fisherman and good fishing on the Esk is nearby, me, I love the coastal walks, the artisan villages and the warmth of the people in North East Scotland. Go, discover and enjoy.

A beautiful peaceful location overlooking the sea

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful, well maintained facilities. Particularly enjoyed using the wood burning stove and plenty of hot water. Lovely enclosed garden and a grassy area to the front leading onto the beach. The owner is very welcoming and friendly. Would definitely recommend.

From the Owner

We live close by and as soon as the cottage came on the market we could see the potential for a holiday let. When we bought Seagreens it was in need of total renovation. We carried this out over the first year starting by painting the outside which made an immediate difference. It is such in such a beautiful spot that I often wish we were living there!

Activity and Interests


The cottage is situated on a pebble beach. St Cyrus Beach and Nature Reserve is only a short drive away, you can either park at the Nature Reserve and take a flat walk along the path through the sand dunes or take the road between the school and the church in St Cyrus and walk the steep cliff path down onto the sand. It is a beautiful sandy beach that is rarely busy - well worth a visit.


Aberdeen Airport is 35 miles away. A car is essential.

Montrose train station is 7 miles away


Aberdeen 30 miles

Stonehaven 15 miles

Montrose 7 miles

Further Details:

There are 3 supermarkets in Montrose and a small post office and shop in St Cyrus. The Anchor Pub in Johnshaven serves excellent food and also offers a takeaway service.

From the Owner

The views from Seagreens are beautiful. In the summer there is nothing better than gazing out across the sea, and in the winter when the wind is blowing it is lovely to be cozy by the stove. The cottage is in a great location for lots of outdoor activities, from fishing, walking and cycling from your doorstep to the 90 minute journey to Glenshee for skiing.
