Elisabeth Cottage Coastal Cottage description

Holiday home
Elisabeth Cottage is a stone built, semi-detached cottage in a residential area of the town of Banff on the Moray Firth in Scotland. The cottage has three bedrooms (one double, one twin and one single) and a family bathroom which make it suitable for five people. The rest of the accommodation is comprised of a fitted kitchen with a dining area and a sitting room. Outside the cottage there is a small gravelled rear garden with garden furniture. Just a few minutes walk from the harbour and with so much beautiful countryside to discover, Elisabeth Cottage is a wonderful holiday cottage at any time of year.

Often linked with neighbouring Macduff, Banff is set on the shores of a lovely sandy beach and is full of interesting architectural points. The incredible Duff House is a good example; this impressive Georgian mansion which is open to visitors and homes paintings and artefacts from the National Galleries of Scotland. The surrounding area provides a good selection of shops, hotels and restaurants whilst the gorgeous little town of Pennan, situated in a little bay at the base of rugged cliffs, has been not only a smugglers village, but also the location for the movie 'Local Hero'. On both the Whisky and Castle trails, this wonderful little town alsoboasts multiple fishing, sailing, dolphin watching, surfing, golfing and climbing opportunities, not to mention the breathtaking scenery and stunning sunsets.

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.

Everything was as we had hoped. The owner could not have been more pleasant and helpful. We felt safe in the location and the price was right! This is the sort of accommodation I would book, year after year. Thank you.

The Cottage was clean and well presented in a convenient location for local amenities. What more do you need? Will certainly recommend to friends and will rebook if wanting to visit Banff area again.

The cottage was very welcoming - the owners had supplied milk and a welcoming cake - a lovely touch after such a long journey. The cottage instantly felt as home.

This cottage looks ordinary on the outside but is very nicely appointed and furnished on the inside. It is comfortable and tastefully decorated, clean, quiet and very pleasant to stay in for a week for us as two parents and two small children (aged 3 and 1). It has all the kitchen appliances and cooking utensils that you need, spacious bedrooms but only one bathroom (so perhaps not ideal for 5 adults to stay in for example). Also there are two other properties that are accessed via the small rear yard so you lose a bit of privacy; there is no garden with this property. The main downside is the location. The cottage is on a bland street of terraced homes that overlook a small rehabilitation hospital and the main sandy beach is a good 20 minute walk. Banff is not a particularly attractive town and seems quite run-down in places and with petty crime issues. Nearby towns such as Cullen, Portsoy and Buckie would probably make for a more enjoyable family holiday.

We loved the house. Though very unspectacular from the outside, it was very lovely inside. Nice rooms, all you can need for good living.

Perfect location for beach, walking, visiting holiday. Cottage superb.
