Seahorse Cottage

Gardenstown, Banffshire

Feefo RatingsRead reviews

Seahorse Cottage stands just yards from the harbour in the quaint and picturesque village of Gardenstown on the sunny Moray coast of north east Scotland.

The cottage provides spacious and comfortable accommodation which is just right for two couples or a family of four. It is immediately obvious that Seahorse has been refurbished by an owner who really knows what holidaymakers want. Visitors will find that it offers particularly attractive accommodation that achieves the perfect combination of character and comfort.

The snug sitting room has comfortable seating grouped round the multi-fuel stove which is inset an exposed brick surround. The modern kitchen is sleekly fitted with natural wood units and a circular dining table for convivial meals. The elegant and spacious shower room is also downstairs.

Upstairs are the two bedrooms, a double and a twin, that both have large dormer windows. The elegant double is warm and inviting and has an en suite WC and wash basin. In the twin in particular the windows light up the room and give it a light and airy feel.

A final attractive feature is the little terrace (with furniture) which has been created at the back of the house and is accessed from the upper level. From this vantage point you can glimpse the harbour at the end of the alley while you sit peacefully with a book or an evening drink.

'Very cosy cottage with pretty decor and beautiful scenery. An added bonus for us was lovely weather. The walk to Crovie is a must do. Hope to be back again one day.'

Bell party

'Light and cosy cottage. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Beautiful spot. Kids had a brilliant time.'

Graham party

Perhaps due to the absence of traffic, (you can drive down to the harbour) Gardenstown has a lovely atmosphere.

If you like roving around on foot you will find quite a few steps as the town is built on a series of terraces, linked by charming walkways. There is a restaurant and a pub, but for shopping Macduff and Banff are about eight miles away.

As far as exploring further afield is concerned, you can range all along the coast. To the east, there are the little villages of Crovie, to which you can walk under the cliffs from Gardenstown and Pennan, where you can still see the phonebox made famous in the film 'Local Hero'. There are some excellent golf courses along the coast, while inland you can head for the Speyside Way, or go on a Whisky pilgrimage visiting the many distilleries along the Whisky Trail.

For a dash of culture, Banff is home to Duff House, an outpost of the Scottish National Gallery. The National Trust properties of Haddo House, Leith Hall and Fyvie Castle are also within an easy drive.

Please note: while we make every effort to be as accurate as possible, the actual position of the cottage indicated on the map above and the proximity of the amenities in the Local Info section cannot be guaranteed to be precise and should be used as a guide only.
