5/5 Excellent

Great house with all you need for a seaside break
Allan's house is well located for a seaside break- the town itself was very residential and didn't have many facilities for tourists but a variety of restaurants, cafes and pubs were a short drive away. The beaches along the coast are absolutely stunning and kept us and our toddler amused for a full week. The house is very well equipped for cooking and there is a lovely outdoor area for BBQing and relaxing. If you have a toddler, it might be a good idea to take a travel stair gate as the stairs are steep. The house was very clean and comfortable. Overall, a very relaxing stay.

5/5 Excellent

Great base for a holiday on the Moray Coast
The host was very accommodating, he even made space in the garden shed for us to store our bikes. The cottage was clean, had a plentiful supply of hand-wash, washing up liquid etc, lovely fluffy towels and a comfy bed. There were even a few groceries waiting for us on arrival. The small back garden was a sun-trap and a good place to relax with a coffee/glass of wine.

5/5 Excellent

A home from home
We very much enjoyed our stay in the property, comfortable and spotlessly clean, a nice garden in which you can sit and enjoy, in a very quite area, The minute we walked into the property we felt very welcome, our host had went to the trouble to leave biscuits / bread and other very nice touches, I would highly recommend this as a base for anyone wishing to explore this part of the country, I cant speak highly enough about the property, I would certainly use it again,
