"The best cottage we've stayed in" . Our lovely cottage welcomes returning guests year after year.
A little over an hours drive from Aberdeen, Garden Cottage is just outside the hamlet of New Byth and is ideal for families, couples or a group of friends who want to be close enough to the city while enjoying the peace and tranquility of the beautiful North East countryside.
Situated on a family run working farm our cosy cottage has a private entrance, ample parking and a lovely landscaped garden that's laid mainly to lawn - ideal for children to play safely. The cottage is on one level, double glazed, centrally heated and extremely well equipped.
The large open-plan living/kitchen/dining area has a wood burning stove (logs are supplied), a flat screen TV with Freeview, video, DVD player and music centre. There's a 3 seater (this turns into a sofa bed) and 2 seater couch and single chair. Doors from the lounge lead onto the patio, which is in full sun for most of the day, where you can relax on the garden furniture and enjoy the surrounding countryside.
The kitchen has a dishwasher, microwave, fridge freezer and electric cooker. The crockery is neutral and the cupboards house plenty of pots, pans, serving dishes and glassware. Fresh flowers and a Welcome Basket containing bread, butter, eggs, jam and wine will be in the cottage for your arrival as well as tea, coffee and milk.
The utility room, off the kitchen, has a washing machine, separate dryer, freezer and there is also an outdoor drying area.
The cottage has two bedrooms; first bedroom has a double bed and the second bedroom has twin beds. We can also provide a fold up bed (suitable for children only) and cot.
Garden Cottage is well situated for exploring castles, tucked away coastal fishing villages and beautiful long sandy beaches. You can follow the Whisky Trails, play golf at one of the excellent nearby courses or enjoy some great fishing and shooting. All are within easy reach.
Pack a picnic (there's a basket and a cooler for your use in the cottage) and enjoy the beautiful nearby beaches which include Balmedie, Inverboyndie, Cullen, Fraserburgh, Banff, Findhorn and Hopeman.
The nearby towns of Turriff and Banff have excellent restaurants and the village of Pennan, where scenes from Local Hero were filmed, is a short drive away.
Laminate flooring throughout with the exception of the bedrooms which have neutral carpeting.
Pets are welcome but we do ask they are kept within the main living area of the cottage, and kept out of bedrooms. Please let us know, at time of booking, if you are bringing along your pet.
