Outside - Small, flower-filled, south-facing terrace with garden furniture...ideal for breakfast on a sunny morning!
In the kitchen you'll find some goodies from the local artisan bakery along with tea, freshly ground coffee and milk.
There will always be fresh flowers.
You'll also find some of our fabulous natural handmade soap in the shower room! It's made here in the cottage using locally sourced flowers and herbs. We use the traditional cold process method for making soap with 100% natural sustainable oils, butters and botanicals with pure essential oils for scent. No petroleum, parabens or SLS. It smells wonderful!
A complimentary basket of logs and kindling will be provided for the wood burning stove. Further supplies are available to buy locally.
Bed-linen and towels are provided and there are electric heaters in each room.
There is no television at Tern Cottage but there is a radio and unlimited super fast WiFi .
Mobile phone reception is somewhat patchy in the village but it can often be accessed upstairs in the cottage and outside.
The traditional nature of the cottage means the headroom upstairs is limited.
The cottage is not suitable for babies or children under the age of 5 years.
We're sorry but there is no disabled access and we cannot accept pets.
The holiday accommodation at Tern Cottage is a self-contained part of the owner's home.
The Moray coast boasts some of the region's most fabulous countryside & wildlife. Stunning coastlines, beautiful woodland river walks, spectacular bird life (ideal location for ornithologists), a resident pod of appox. 130 bottlenose dolphins and lots of seals! Findhorn enjoys it's own micro-climate so often the weather is much better in the village than in the surrounding areas!
