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.
Sports & Adventure Activities
Super Cottage in a Fantastic Location
Harbour Cottage has a wonderful location right at the harbour side in Pennan. It’s easy to stay here because there is absolutely everything you need. Great facilities, seaside decor and very comfortable. Loads to see in the surrounding area. Lovely fishing villages and wonderful countryside and sea views everywhere. Bliss. We had a picnic in the sunshine at Cullykhan Bay using the picnic gear from the Cottage. This is an absolute must during your stay. We also enjoyed having a stroll on the beach after returning from our days out and then a wander around the harbour after dinner. A great nights sleep too with the peace and quiet of Pennan and very comfortable beds at the cottage. You just have to go!
Clean, comfortable, great position
This cottage is right on the harbour, and close to the edge of the sea, so if you want a sea view this couldn't be closer. The bay faces north, but there is still morning sun, and you can see the sunset.
I couldn't fault the house. It was warm, comfortable and everything you could possibly need was there. The welcome pack was a lovely touch, we enjoyed all the products. The two sittingrooms worked well for us, someone could watch a film whilst someone else was doing a puzzle, and being open between them meant no-one was left out. Keeping the log burners going kept the place cosy, and there was plenty of wood provided.
We had a very happy holiday.
Beautiul House in a beautiful place
We had a fantastic tine at Harbour House. The house is beautiful and has everything you need. My 5 year old son had a great time exploring the beach and playing with the many toys and board games provided in the house. I would highly recommend Harbour House to anyone looking to get away for a relaxing break. Pennan is a beautiful little place and i can imagine it would be even better in the Summer time.
