We stayed at Slaters Cottage for the last week in September and was maid to feel really welcome.We were met by Mark the owner who showed us around and had even organised a welcome pack for us which we thought was a nice touch.The cottage was superb with everything you need.Very cosy and warm every detail had been covered.We would certainly recommend this property to anyone who likes their home comforts.

A lovely house and location for me and my 2 grown up daughters. Beautifully presented and spacious - the house was perfect for the 3 of us and would easily cope with more people. The wood burning stove was a delight and the kitchen was easy to use (great coffee machine!). Mark was fantastic - lovely, unexpected welcome pack of breakfast items and goodies on arrival and he even re-confirmed our boat trip as there was patchy mobile signal in the village. A charming, friendly owner. The location is outstanding .... beautiful beach walks, and the boat trip on Gemini Explorer from nearby Buckie is highly recommended. The pod of dolphins we saw was beautiful :)

Slater's is a beautiful and immaculately presented cottage that I am delighted to recommend to anyone. The cottage itself is beautifully decorated. The bedrooms are all great sizes and the beds are extremely comfy! The owner, goes above and beyond to make the experience great, from the generous welcome pack on arrival to providing information on local attractions.

The house is beautifully finished , spacious and situated a minutes walk from the coast. The children loved the choice of bedrooms and the layout of the cottage. We had everything we required for the week, including the owner's help when required. Very friendly and approachable. The coastline is stunning and Portknockie is a good base for access to other beautiful places, Cullen,situated a mile up the coast (it's better to walk along the coast from Portknockie than drive),and Lossiemouth,which had one of the nicest beaches I have visited. It is quiet in Portknockie,but there is plenty to see and do. Everyone is very friendly, welcoming and helpful. The local chip shop is as good as it gets. This was our first trip to Scotland,but won't be our last. Overall,Slaters cottage and the entire holiday exceeded our expectations. We shall definitely be returning and the kids loved it.

Having recently spent a lovely week staying in this charming cottage which is full of character, I would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a cosy, relaxed atmosphere. Ample space and good sized rooms. The owners have ensured that it is welcoming and have gone the extra mile when it comes to attention to detail.

Booked for a group of guys working on a nearby site. This property was ideal for our guys, good location and great price. Communication and help when required from the owner couldn't have been better. If we are working in the area again Slater's Cottage will definitely be the first place we try for accommodation!

The cottage is well equipped in all respects. The layout is great for larger / extended families. Portknockie has everything a family needs for a great seaside holiday - beautiful beach, interesting cliff path and rocks, and an excellent fish and chip shop! Also lots of very interesting things to do - marine aquarium in Macduff is fantastic. The cottage is in a very quiet location and has a private patio with outside drying facilities. We had a great holiday.
