"An ideal cottage in a peaceful location but close enough to all the amenities."
We booked Clavie cottage to provide accomodation while visiting relatives in Morayshire. The cottage is very easy to find and the arrivals/departure process is the best that I've experienced. The cottage is very typical of the type of property in the locality and has been professionally modernised and equipped to provide all and more of the comforts you would require. A good sized kitchen with all mod cons made for easy meal preparation. The master bedroom is fantastic with its huge windows letting in tons of natural light. A small sofa has been thoughtfully positioned so yhat you can relax in the morning with your coffee while looking out to sea. Two further bedrooms provide ample sleeping space. The cottage was extremely clean when we arrived and all of the fixtures and fittings gave the impression that it was a brand new property. The high standards of cleanliness and presentation is a credit to the owners. We would not hesitate in renting Clavie cottage again.

"Clean, comfy & cosy!"
Spotlessly clean, really attractively presented property, modernised to a high standard yet still full of original period character. We loved staying here, our young children were thrilled with exploring the house and the beach, it was lovely coming in from being outside- instant warmth, hot water constantly, little thoughtful touches like books and dvd's for the children, to very easy instructions provided by the owners before our arrival, made this a very easy and enjoyable break over Hogmanay. A big well done to the owners- we will recommend to friends and family and will be back again to enjoy the delights of Clavie cottage and Burghead!
