Overview

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday cottage in Turriff - Garden Cottage

Two bedroomed cottage, sleeping up to 6, in beautiful country setting

Only an hours drive from Aberdeen, situated on a working farm in a beautiful rural location, Garden Cottage is a light bright and modern home away from home.

The centrally heated detached cottage, which welcomes returning guests year after year, has neutral colours throughout, is double glazed, very cosy and extremely well equipped with everything you need.

Offering total privacy Garden Cottage has a private entrance, large parking area as well as its own sheltered garden with large lawn - ideal for children to play safely.

Set among mature chestnuts trees you can enjoy a leisurely breakfast or barbeque on the patio, which is in full sun for most of the day, overlooking the large pond and garden.

The centrally heated cottage has a large open plan living/kitchen area with a wood burning stove (logs are provided during your stay).

The kitchen is very well equipped with a dishwasher, microwave, fridge freezer, electric cooker and a good selection of cooking utensils etc. and the utility room, just off the kitchen, has a washing machine and separate dryer.

The lounge/dining area has 2 couches (a 3 seater which turns into a sofa bed and 2 seater), chair, coffee table, dining table with 6 chairs, a flat screen TV, small stereo and there are lots of books.

There are two bedrooms: one with a double bed and the other with twin beds. Both bedrooms are garden facing and have built-in wardrobes and chests of drawers.

Fresh flowers and a welcome basket containing bread, milk, eggs, biscuits and wine will be in the cottage for your arrival as well as tea & coffee, salt, pepper, herbs, rice etc. in the pantry. Extra shopping can be requested prior to arrival, at an additional cost.

Linen, towels and electricity are all INCLUDED in the price and wifi is available in the cottage.

Garden Cottage is just a couple of miles from the small village of New Pitsligo and Turriff, where you will find the larger supermarkets such as Tesco, Costcutter and The Co-Op, is a 10 minute drive. There's also a good selection of coffee shops, restaurants, butchers, gift shops and hairdressers in Turriff.

Garden Cottage is well situated for visiting the nearby fishing villages and beautiful beaches - some of which are award winning. The Castle and Whisky Trails are within easy reach and there are several excellent golf courses within a short drive. Fishing and shooting locations are also nearby.

Nearby Turriff and Banff have excellent restaurants, the small village of Pennan which was made famous in the movie Local Hero is only a few miles along the coast and The Pitsligo Arms in New Pitsligo is a short 5 minute drive.

Guests are welcome to arrive anytime after 4pm, and to allow us to get ready for our next guests we ask that you vacate by 10am.

Stilvolles Ambiente

  • 5 out of 5
Wir verbrachten eine herrliche Woche in diesem wunderschönen, stilvollen Cottage. Die Lage, in einem Wald, auf "eigenem" Grundstück, mit Auffahrt und Rasenfläche war einfach nur umwerfend. Die kleine Terrasse konnten wir witterungsbedingt leider nicht nutzen. Die Einrichtung war sehr geschmackvoll und das Cottage selbst sehr geräumig. Wir fanden alles Notwendige vor, nur eine Kaffeemaschine hätten wir uns für den Start in den Tag gewünscht. Der geringe Wasserdruck der Dusche ist allerdings gewöhnungsbedürftig. Der Hausherr selbst wohnte "direkt um die Ecke", für uns also jederzeit erreichbar und auch ansprechbar, wirkte jedoch nie kontrollierend. Harvey besuchte uns mehrmals täglich, er wusste warum. Einem Leckerchen war er nie abgeneigt. Nach unseren täglichen Ausflügen, die Entfernungen sollte man nicht unterschätzen, freuten wir uns immer wieder, uns in "unser" Cottage zurückziehen zu können.
Fazit: Eine tolle Unterkunft, ihren Preis wert, die wir nur empfehlen können.
Bislang fuhren wir noch kein Feriendomizil zweimal an, das könnte die Ausnahme werden.
