Property type cottage


About the property

Pew with a View is 5 meters from the seashore and has fabulous views of the sea

Pew with a view is 5 meters from the seashore and has fabulous views of the sea through floor to ceiling windows. This location is renowned for Aurora borealis and meteor showers and is peaceful and quiet.

The cottage is a small fishermans cottage and ideally suited for 2 people , but it can sleep 4 in 1 double bed and 1 sofa bed. If traveling with lots of luggage you can store cases in the boathouse below.

There is a secure shore front garden and a wooden decking area in the garden with patio furniture located beneath it , which provides a spectacular location to relax and enjoy the view from the outside. A fire pit is also available should you wish to spend the night outside to enjoy the meteor showers or simply enjoy a glass of wine and breathe in the sea air.

Pitullie is a small hamlet 2 miles from Fraserburgh. It's a quiet and beautiful location to relax, yet still within a easy commute to Fraserburgh town center.

There are several local artists who live in the village and private craft workshops can be organized on request.

There is a small convenience store with a post office about 5 minutes walk from the cottage in sandhaven. Great for last minute groceries or bottle of wine if you don't wish to travel into town

A small fridge freezer is located in the cottage and an additional large fridge feeezer is located in the boathouse along with a dryer, washer and ironing facilities. If you are coming with sports equipment, the boathouse is the perfect location to store it for easy and quick access.

Pew with a view has a bus stop a few meters away which goes into Fraserburgh or Rosehearty. They run every 30 minutes, however, there is a coastal path to both places and it's about a 30 minute walk, either way, directly along the shoreline. Great for bike rides!

A totally unique seafront cottage with its own boat house.

"Pew with a view" is situated in the hamlet of Pitullie in the North east coast of Scotland. The cottage is a renovated fisherman’s cottage dating back to the 1600's and sits 5 metres from the sea. It has direct access to a boat ramp which leads into a small harbour allowing easy access for boats, kayaks, Jet Skis and divers. This site is frequented by diving clubs around North East Scotland and is known as one of the best diving sites in the area. The Boat House situated under the cottage is ideal for storing fishing and water sport equipment. The cottage has floor to ceiling storm-proof windows and is a perfect spot to birdwatch or to enjoy the many dolphins, minky whales and seals which frequently pass by. The cottage has a large decking area and garden with a small natural burn running through it. There is a range of Garden furniture and a fire pit to enjoy the outdoors day or night. Aurora Borealis are common in this area.

I expect guests at pew with a view to respect this quiet and peaceful location and the local residents.

A quirky, cosy cottage with stunning scenery.

  • 5 of 5

I stayed for two nights. The cottage was small but cosy and the big windows made the living room area feel roomy. The views are stunning in all weathers. I took my little dog so having the enclosed garden area made it safe for him to wonder round or bake in the sun which is his favorite passtime. We explored nearby towns and visited a few beaches. Definately a cottage I would reccommend to get away from the hustle and bustle of work. Everyone deserves an escape now and again so will definately be back.

Wonderful and special hide away

  • 4 of 5

If you are looking for an authentic away from the crowds experience of village life then check out "Pew with a View". It is how described on the web quaint, quirky with all mod cons with stupendous views of open sea, sky and rugged coast line in the warm welcoming village of Pitullie, Aberdeenshire a hidden gem of Scotland. A stay here far from the maddening crowd will inspire you and totally relax and refresh mind, body and soul. There are beautiful sandy beaches within easy reach, RSBP reserves, the very lovely Aden Country Park and tiny fishing villiages down steep winding roads to explore. Sue and Isobel are excellent hosts and nothing is too much trouble to make sure you have a wonderful holiday. We had the time of our lives Carol, Billy and our beautiful cockapoo Ruby.

Exactly as pictured

  • 5 of 5

The fishermans cottage had stunning views as described with nearby beaches worth a visit (Fraserburgh with sand dunes, New Aberdour with small caves and Pennan where "local hero" village scenes were shot). The cottage was well equipped with quality furnishings & fittings and the garden was great for relaxing at night in. Susan & her Mum were great hosts and we would definitely recommend a visit here .
