“Perfect get away to a wee gem!” We booked Harbour Cottage in Gardenstown for a week’s staycation and we’re delighted that we did, we had a great time! Cosy, clean and perfectly situated for the harbour and the beach, the view from the bedroom was sublime. My husband and I took our dog with us and she settled in really well. As it was our wedding anniversary, the owner, Sue, was very helpful suggesting nice places to eat. We eventually booked a table at The Banff Springs Hotel and we’re so glad we did, the food was wonderful and we had the BEST table in the restaurant (number 19) where we had a view of the beach and the sea! We also ate at the Garden Arms Hotel in Gardenstown and partook in fish and chips from the visiting fish and chip van in the village, both were excellent! There are plenty places to visit in the area and joining ‘I Love Gardenstown’ helped immensely with more suggestions of things to do and see! We would highly recommend Harbour Cottage especially if you’re bringing your dog!
“Seaside therapy” What isn`t there to like about sitting on a comfortable sofa , nursing a glass of liquid nourishment , gazing out , through a huge picture window , at the sea just a few feet away ? . When you get the urge to do something more active then walk the coastline and , having worked up a thirst ( there`s a theme developing here ) decamp to the village pub , a good old fashioned boozer with quantities of good food that illustrates mine hosts view of the horrors of nouvelle cuisine . Sated and content , return to the cottage and let the sound of the waves send you off to the land of nod . Repeat 6 times and go home fully relaxed and ready for the fray .
