“Great location, great cottage and great service” We managed to rent this cottage last minute so didn't expect much, but we were delighted to find that the location is virtually on the beach.....always a plus! The cottage is much bigger than it appears on the photos, Mike has done a wonderful job with a complete refurbishment of the building making it a very comfortable place to stay. The wood-burning stove is the star of the show! Nothing is too much trouble for Mike who we found to be attentive and very accommodating. We will certainly stay there again if we visit that area again.
An incredibly well-equipped, very spacious property in the midst of wonderful countryside with lovely owners
I fear this will not be a very creative or unique review. I can only reiterate very strongly what every other reviewer seems to have mentioned. Whitegate Croft is the MOST FABULOUS place to stay. It was a very long drive for us (475 miles) and we were greeted at the property by the wonderfully friendly and generous owners, Angus and Alvina. We all agreed the long drive was well worth it. (3 generations aged 19 to 79). Nothing is too much trouble and Alvina makes wonderful pancakes as we discovered when she popped round with some one morning.
The property itself lacks for absolutely nothing and the photos don't really do it full justice. It is fantastically equipped and very spacious. What worked well for us was having a downstairs single room (opposite the huge downstairs bathroom) which was ideal for my mobility impaired mother-in-law. Also great were the two living rooms, one with TV, one without but both furnished beautifully, the one with the tv had a wood burning stove and had wonderful views through windows/doors on three walls.
The kitchen contained all mod cons and there was a separate utility room too.
The upstairs bedrooms (double with ensuite and dressing area) had fantastic open views and a sea view could be glimpsed from the side kitchen window.
Nearby are numerous quaint fishing villages to visit as well as the whale and dolphin centre at Spey Bay (free entry). Lots of distilleries are in the area and I can recommend the Glenfiddich one which we visited. Culloden battlefield and visitor centre was just over an hour away and Fochabers made an interesting visit (try the Baxters village).
All in all, a great place to stay and visit. …
Beachfront Cottage at 5 The Hythe, Findochty
Just spent 5 nights at 5The Hythe, what a great cottage! What a great location! First time there and we had such a lovely stay. The accommodation was great. Felt very much at home from the moment we arrived. Great location to either sit out on the little beach in front or from which to visit lots of neighbouring villages. Thoroughly recommend staying here. We’ll definitely be back! …

Holiday Cottage with Stunning uninterupted Sea Views and Golf nearby in Buckie
I booked last minute for a week, whilst my house was like a building site. It’s just fab. Beautifully decorated, spotlessly clean, and equipped with everything you may need. The beds are so comfy, and the standard of furnishings makes you feel you’re staying in a home from home. I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending the place, and Jillian as a host for her help and great communications …
