Why Claudia chose Pennan

Pennan is one of the prettiest coastal villages in Scotland.It is situated on the Banffshire coast which is a real 'hidden gem' .The whole coastline is dotted with lovely villages in spectacular settings,there are interesting historical towns such as Banff and Portsoy.The birdwatching and wildlife are world famous.Being based in Pennan means you can easily drive to wonderful beaches,visit ancient castles and explore the wonderful history and culture of rural Aberdeenshire.

What makes this house unique

Pennan is quaint,quiet and peaceful.The 30 or so houses all line the single street and everyone knows each other.When you come out of the front door you are right on the harbourside and next to the pebbled beach.

You can sit outside with a glass of wine and enjoy the fantastic sunsets.When it`s cold outside you can curl up in front of the fire and listen to the waves.

A extraordinary beautiful seaside house in front of the Pennan harbor to feel at home

  • 5 of 5

The house is directly at the harbor and you can enjoy the sea from the kitchen and the sitting room. It has a beautiful maritime interior and is very comfortable. It is very well organized and contains everything a guest can ask for from kitchen over bathroom to entertainment. At my arrival Claudia welcomed me with some welcome gifts from banffshire. She takes extraordinarily care of her guests. The concept is that you really feel at home. I loved to stay there and will probably try to visit again.

Sets the standard for all future rentals

  • 5 of 5

It is difficult to capture all of the positive aspects of this rental. First, the efficient and timely communication from the owner, the warm welcome with a freshly lit fire, a dram of whiskey, fresh flowers by the bed and fresh local treats all add up to the first positive impression. The home is very well appointed with high quality fixtures, furniture and design. Nothing has been left out to chance and Claudia has thought of everything imaginable. The location is remote but ideal for relaxing and enjoying the coast. Nature, peace and tranquility, and a warm home to return to at the end of the day. What is there not to like? Our only regret is that we did not book more time at this lovely home. Thank you for making the end of our trip such a memorable experience.

A great holiday home - so comfortable and well-equipped, right by the harbour in charming village.

  • 5 of 5

We had a marvellous sunny week in this lovely house. Our grand-daughter thought the build in box beds were the best!! There is so much to explore in the area - beautiful coastal walks, cliffs and beaches. A highlight of the week was a wild-lifeboat trip when we were surrounded by 20+ dolphins, leaping and swimming under the boat. Also walking out to the huge gannet colony on Troup Head. But it was also very nice to relax in the cosy house by the wood burner with a good book. We recommend it highly!
