About the Property

Lovely Two bedroomed cottage, in a beautiful setting near Turriff

Just an hours drive from Aberdeen, 7 miles from the market town of Turriff and 11 from the beautiful beaches around Banff, Garden Cottage is situated on a farm in a beautiful rural location.

The centrally heated home-away-from-home detached cottage, which 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 - ideal for children to play safely.

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 (logs are provided during your stay) 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, separate dryer 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 built-in wardrobes and chests of drawers. There is also a z-bed which is suitable for young children.

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 and Strichen. Turriff, where you will find the larger supermarkets such as Tesco, Costcutter and The Co-Op, is a 10 minute drive. Turriff also 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.

Turriff and Banff have excellent restaurants, the small village of Pennan which was made famous in the movie Local Hero is only a few miles along the coast and The Pitsligo Arms in New Pitsligo is a short 5 minute drive.

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.
