Overview

About the property

Lovely 2B 2B cottage in a beautiful setting near Turriff with wood burner

Have you ever gone away only to find the accommodation isn't what it looked like in photos? Rooms in the photos looked bigger and brighter than they actually are and the big fluffy towels folded nicely in the photos were replaced with ones that have seen better days?

Set among the stunning scenery that the North East of Scotland offers, you'll find that Garden Cottage matches the photos, the rooms are light and bright and the towels really are big and fluffy. There's no hidden extras and we even provide "the little things" such as washing powder, dishwasher tablets and extra binbags. We also provide logs if you'd like to light the wood burner.

An hours drive from Aberdeen, 5 miles from the village of New Pitsligo, 8 from the market town of Turriff (Gaelic for Place of Round Hills) and a very short drive to the beautiful beaches and hidden coves around this area, Garden Cottage lies within the grounds of our family run farm in the most lovely, yet private, setting.

We are far enough away from the noise (but close enough to be on the main A98 Fraserburgh to Banff road in under a minute!) where you will find Garden Cottage a tranquil and relaxing destination to recharge.

The recent installation of a bio mass boiler means this detached cottage is wonderfully warm and offers you a home-away-from-home holiday rental you'll not want to leave.

Graded 4* by Visit Scotland, Garden Cottage 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, with parking area for several cars, as well as a sheltered garden with large lawn. 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 (fenced) pond and garden.

The centrally heated cottage has a large (27ft x 18ft) open plan kitchen/dining/living area with a wood burning stove and the kitchen is very well equipped with a dishwasher, microwave, fridge, electric cooker as well as a good selection of cooking utensils etc. The utility room, just off the kitchen, has a washing machine, dryer, iron & ironing board and a freezer.

The lounge/dining area has 2 leather sofas with a matching footstool and a bucket chair, coffee table, side table, large dining table with 6 chairs, a flat screen TV, small stereo and there are books & cd's.

There are two bedrooms: one with a double bed and the other with twin beds. Both bedrooms are garden facing and have wardrobes and chests of drawers. There is also a z-bed & airbed which are suitable for young children.

The cottage has an ensuite shower room in the double bedroom and there is a bathroom next to the twin room. This bathroom has a shower over the bath.

We put in a welcome basket and there's tea, coffee, sugar, salt & pepper etc in the pantry.

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

Garden Cottage is just a couple of miles from the small villages of New Pitsligo, Cumminestown and Strichen. Turriff, where you will find the larger supermarkets such as Tesco, Costcutter and The Co-Op, is a short 15 minute drive. Turriff also offers a very good selection of coffee shops, restaurants, butchers, gift shops and hairdressers.

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.

For eating out in the area, Turriff and Banff have excellent restaurants, the small fishing village of Pennan, where you'll find a cosy little pub, is a short drive away. A little further along the coastal route there are lovely little cafes and pubs in McDuff, Portsoy, Gardenstown, Whitehills and Cullen.

We are very Pet Friendly but you MUST let us know at time of booking if any pets are accompanying you.

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.

We had high expectations because we read the reviews but we very pleasantly surprised to see how big and well equipped is this cottage. The property is well cared with attention to details, spacious, warm, high standard equipment, quiet and bright. Everything works well. The owners are lovely, helpful and welcoming. Best family holiday ever.

Perfect in every way

  • 5 of 5

We cannot praise Garden Cottage highly enough. It is simply perfect in every way. Gorgeous, cosy, comfortable, spotlessly clean, decorated to a high standard and well equipped with everything you need for a home from home. The cottage is also perfectly located in a peaceful yet very convenient location on the owners farm. Despite the very cold and wintery weather, we loved exploring the cottage garden with its lovely pond, the fields and making friends with Dexter and Doodle the dogs, cows and roe deer. Carrie and Anthony are so friendly and helpful and made us feel very welcome. Little extras such as the welcome hamper and the wee birthday present for me were the icing on the cake. We loved our days out visiting the many beaches and attractions on the beautiful Moray coast, which is literally a 10-15 minute drive from the cottage. We instantly fell in love with Garden Cottage and we are already planning our next trip. Thank you Carrie and Anthony for everything and we hope to see you again soon.

Pretty, Peaceful and Perfect

  • 5 of 5

This is a really lovely place to stay at. The cottage is very nice and has everything you need for a break. The owners are a very pleasant couple who are extremely welcoming but not intrusive during your stay. It's the little things that really stand out such as fresh flowers and a welcome basket on arrival. Our dogs loved it as well and made friends with the owners dogs. Highly recommended.
