Benjamin's Cottage description

Holiday home
Benjamin's Cottage is in the desirable Seatown area of Gardenstown on the Moray Firth, Scotland. The property is ideal for couples, with a double bedroom and a shower room on the first floor, as well as an open plan living area downstairs, with a kitchen, a dining area and a sitting area with a multi-fuel stove. There is parking nearby and a shared courtyard outside with seating area. Great for exploring the Moray Firth coastline, Benjamin's Cottage is a wonderful romantic retreat.

The village of Gardenstown was founded in 1720 as a fishing village. Gardenstown borders a small bay with stunning scenery flanking both sides. The neighbouring village of Banff boasts a relaxing sandy beach and Duff House, an impressive Georgian mansion open to visitors and home to paintings and artefacts from the National Galleries of Scotland. Banff also has a good selection of shops, restaurants and hotels which serve a fine selection of local sea foods.

From the lush green farmlands of the Borders to the ruggedness of the Highlands, the Scots are proud of their land and identity. Scotland also has some of Britain's best beaches with glorious stretches of clean sand over which to roam.

We stayed here for a week and had a great time here. Scotland and this house will be in our hearts forever....

Liked the cosy cottage and lovely wood burner. The location, in beautiful Gardenstown, is so close to the sea with sea views from the front door and bedroom. Liked the surrounding area and stunning coastline as well as the warmth and friendliness of the local people.

The owners contacted us with a cheery email, a few days before our holiday, to tell us how to find the cottage, which, as we arrived after dark, was most necessary. Also the key safe code, although it seems unlikely that Gardenstown is an unsafe place for your belongings. The cottage is compact and therefore easy to keep warm, but quite pleasingly eccentric: it has a window between toilet and bedroom (but there's no need to look! It has a curtain) : an L-shaped bathroom with a door to nowhere, and other windows and niches all over the place. The standard of decorations and decorative items was high. We felt the owners trust their customers not to steal the china and there is an honesty box for any breakages. In fact a generous spirit pervaded the place altogether. Plenty of maps and guides, and the area has far more than one week's entertainment. And there were redshanks and oystercatchers on the beach visible from the bedroom window. Perfect.

The cottage was in a lovely area, the locals and other holiday makers were very friendly. A good base to see some of the attractions. I would recommend this cottage.
