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.

Just an hours drive from Aberdeen, 8 miles from the market town of Turriff and 11 from the beautiful beaches and hidden coves around Banff, Garden Cottage is situated on a farm in a beautiful rural location.

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. 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 large parking area as well as a large sheltered garden and 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 an 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 & board and freezer.

The lounge/dining area has 2 leather sofas with a matching footstool and a bucket chair, coffee table, side table, 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.

Fresh flowers and a welcome basket containing bread, milk, eggs, butter and wine will be in the cottage for your arrival as well as tea & coffee, salt, pepper, herbs, rice 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 Portsoy, Gardenstown, Whitehills and Cullen.

The cottage is Pet Friendly and we would ask that guests let us know at time of booking if any pets are accompanying them.

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.

SHORT BREAKS ARE AVAILABLE AT CERTAIN TIMES OF THE YEAR, PLEASE CONTACT FOR DETAILS.

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.

Well equipped and so very comfortable

  • 5 of 5

Garden Cottage was everything we hoped for. Clean, comfortable and in lovely surroundings. Bonnie our young Labrador had great fun with Dexter. Plenty of good walks for humans and dogs. Unseasonably wet weather forced us to stay indoors more than usual but we enjoyed watching the Paris Open tennis and watching videos. We would have no reservations about recommending this holiday home to friends or family.

Owner's Response: We are so glad you enjoyed your stay here, unfortunately the weather for June was pretty awful, which is unusual, but hopefully if you visit again it'll be bbqs and sunscreen. Anthony & Carrie

Magnificent property

  • 5 of 5

Can't rate this property enough. Been recommending Garden cottage to everyone I've spoke to.

Thanks again for the splendid stay!

Welcome basket was of a generous proportion.

Can't wait to book back up.

Un séjour exceptionnel

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé un séjour exceptionnel chez Carrie et Anthony. L'endroit est au calme dans la nature, ce que nous cherchions. L'accueil est généreux (un gâteau nous attendait à notre arrivée ainsi qu'un magnifique panier gourmand). Carrie et Anthony sont disponibles pour toute question. Et même le chien Dexter est sympathique. Nous prévoyons de revenir...

Merci pour tout.

geweldig

  • 5 of 5

Een fantastisch huis met alles erop en eraan.

De ontvangst was zeer vriendelijk.

Het weer zat niet mee, maar nam niet weg, dat we ons er erg goed hebben vermaakt.

Vooral de kuststrook is heel verrassend mooi.

Goed uitgangspunt om de regio te bekijken.

Stilvolles Ambiente

  • 5 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.
