We had a wonderful holiday at this house and would recommend it highly. The view from dining room overlooking the harbour and sea was spectacular and we could see the dolphins playing on two occasions.

In a beautiful seaside village, and the house has uninterrupted views of the sea and harbour.

A very welcoming and comfortable cottage, very well equipped and everything you could possibly need was provided. The views were amazing and there was so much to explore in the village and surrounding area. My 3 teenagers loved exploring the caves and cliffs and were totally impressed. We come to this area every year and would love to return to Baker's Cottage to continue our adventure.

Baker's Cottage lacked for nothing, was very comfortable, fully equipped, a real home from home which made all the difference when the good old Scottish weather let us down!. We loved our week staying there.

Exceptional cottage in a wonderful location and a great view of the harbour. Both the harbour and the village were enchanting. This was our third visit to the property, it was a good base for exploring all the local attractions that Scotland had to offer.

The location of Baker's Cottage is excellent, looking over the harbour and the firth beyond. Fixtures and fittings are quality, as are kitchen utensils, cutlery etc. Locals are very friendly and no one walks past without saying hello. Chip shop serves quality food, as does the hotel. Village is spotless and a credit to the people who live there. Nice walks in both directions. Cullen via the old railway in one direction and Findochty via the cliff top path in the other. Would I book this cottage again? Yes.

Baker's Cottage was delightful - for such a smart and stylish renovation, it felt really homely and cosy. Lovely to arrive at such a warm and welcoming cottage after a long drive. The location is great as well, quiet and peaceful with views over the harbour and the Moray Firth. Cullen, a gentle hour's stroll along the old railway line, has a couple of superb cafes and a good real ale pub. We shall be back for sure.

Our second stay at Bakers Cottage, and we will be back again! The owner takes great pride in the property, and it really is a fantastic home from home which caters for every taste and age. The location is perfect with views over the harbour. The base is ideal to explore many of the neighbouring villages. Comfortable beds, and high standard of furnishings and fittings.

A wonderful cottage in an amazing location. Peaceful, yet in prime position overlooking the harbour below, with great views out to sea. Unusually, this has off-road parking for 2 cars with easy road access. But with shops in the village and nearby, there is no need to drive far. The tiny harbour has a small beach and paddling pool for children, and there are rock pools too. The cottage itself is finished to a very high standard. We will be back!
September 2013
House very clean. Initial impression wow! Welcome pack very impressive and good quality goods. Anything and everything we needed was supplied from wifi to buckets and spades. Location perfect for a relaxing break.

The cottage was probably the best we have stayed in. It is impeccably clean and fully provisioned. There were numerous thoughtful additional touches and a very generous welcome pack. The owners have made a great effort to provide every comfort possible.

What a lovely cosy cottage this is! We stayed here during the New Year period and it was just fabulous! We were 2 families with 2 toddlers. The rooms are adequate and there is a snug with a single bed which we used for one of the toddlers. The owners have put in a lot of thought into the property as attention to detail was unbelievable, in order to make the stay as comfortable as possible. There were books, DVDs, CDs, and games to keep us occupied indoors. They also provided us with the most amazing food hamper upon arrival which was a pleasant bonus! Excellent, excellent, excellent!!
