Traditional features combined with contemporary fittings make for a truly special cottage with outstanding views on the banks of the River Lossie. Just a quiet road separates the cottage from the bridge across the river to the fabulous East Beach. With a large living/dining area as well as a separate lounge, a king size double and a twin room, four people can easily feel at home here. We can also provide a cot, highchair and stairgates or an extra camp bed for those with young families.
Lossiemouth is compact, but has the necessary shops, restaurants and pubs. It is ideal, not just for a beach, golfing or fishing holiday, but also for touring the Malt Whisky and Castle trails, as well as longer day trips to places such as the Cairngorms National Park or Loch Ness. We invite you to take a break with us – you can be assured of a warm welcome at any time of year!

The Moray region
The Scottish Highlands were popularised as a tourist destination when Queen Victoria bought Balmoral Castle in 1848. It is easy to understand why, with the wide open spaces, the 'big' sky, rugged mountains and tranquil glens. Home to many of Scotland's most famous whiskies and the Cairngorms National Park, there are many opportunities for outdoor pursuits, including walking, fishing and mountain biking. There are also plenty of award winning golf courses to enjoy. The Moray Firth coastline is also stunning, with its mix of cliffs and coves and wide beaches with the whitest of sands. Whether you want to take advantage of the many activities on offer or relax and unwind, the Highlands will have something for you!
Lossiemouth can be found on the Moray coast some five miles north of Elgin. The town owes its existence to Elgin’s need for a port after the entrance to Loch Spynie became blocked by sand in the 1500's.
There are a number of nice walks from the cottage, along the beach of course, but also along the river and through the woods. Ospreys are frequently seen fishing near the mouth of the Lossie. Or perhaps a walk along the Esplanade to the harbour and marina, maybe stopping at one of the pubs or the Harbour tearooms for refreshments. A walk along the Esplanade probably wouldn’t be complete without a locally made ice cream! At the marina, why not book a boat trip to have a chance of a close encounter with some of the Moray Firth’s resident bottlenosed dolphins and other wildlife?
For evening entertainment, there is live music at The Steamboat Inn on a Friday night or checkout what’s on at The Warehouse Theatre. If you have children with you, take them to explore the ruins of nearby Duffus castle, or on a wet day there’s plenty to keep them entertained swimming or skating at The Moray Leisure Centre in Elgin.
For the practical side of things, Lossiemouth has a small supermarket, a greengrocers, a couple of butchers and a bakery. Otherwise there are 24 hour Tesco’s and Asda’s just 6 miles away in Elgin. However, if you want a total break, you can eat out at a number of fine restaurants or pick up a takeaway!
Around half the distilleries in Scotland are found in Speyside, just on our doorstep. In fact, this area has the highest concentration of distilleries anywhere in the world. Many of them including such famous names as Glenfiddich, The Glenlivet, The Macallan and Glen Moray welcome visitors.
What else to do?
Here is a selection of the many other things that may be of interest (full details available at the cottage):
• Visit the ruins of Elgin Cathedral ‘Lantern of the North’, once second in importance only to the cathedral at St Andrew’s
• Get an insight into Scottish history with a local perspective at Elgin Museum, one of the oldest in the country
• See the collection of vintage cars and motor cycles at Moray Motor Museum
• Explore the ruins of Duffus Castle, with its old motte and bailey. Also incidently a great vantage point if the fighter jets are taking off from RAF Lossiemouth
• Visit The Loft Live Music, Bistro and Outdoor Activities
• Go Horse Riding
• Baxters Highland Village for some shopping, a bowl of their famous soup, and a pancake with ice cream and toffee sauce…..
• Visit the only mill in Scotland to transform fibre to finished product at Johnstons Cashmere Visitor Centre and Shop (also good for homebakes!!)
• The kids would love the WDCS Wildlife Centre at Spey Bay
• Play golf at the Championship Course at Moray Golf Club, Lossie, or Elgin Golf Club or one of the other numerous links or inland courses around the area.

"Our Scottish home away from home!"
We loved our stay at Seatown Cottage in a beautiful location just across from the beach in Lossiemouth, with lovely views from the windows. We love this part of Scotland, and finding this gem of a holiday cottage was a special treat. It has lovely decor and everything you could possibly need for a comfortable stay. The home was very clean and the welcome pack of food is a lovely touch. We will certainly go back again, as have many others before us.

"As good as ever"
As you could guess from the title we have been before and will no doubt go again. Cottage is always spotless, comfortable and warm. A particularly nice touch is the welcome pack which is always appreciated. Although the cottage does not have a fenced garden (this is the only reason it doesn't get 5 stars), being over the road from the beach it is excellent for dog owners. We love this cottage, it's our home from home in Moray.

"Wonderful family break in excellent accommodation."
This is an extremely comfortable cottage. The owners have thought of everything to make stay easy, from the welcome pack down to all essentials in kitchen and soap etc in bathroom. Our family rented the cottage next door, great idea as we all had our own space! The beach is literally across the road and the sun would appear to shine on Lossiemouth all the time, wonderful climate even in February.

"Stunning Cottage, excellent location"
We stayed at Seatown cottage for a week over christmas whilst visiting family in Lossiemouth. What a charming cottage, we were accompanied by our daughter and son-in-law and found the cottage had plenty of room for us all. It is very well equipped and the beds were very comfortable, excellent quality quilts, pillows and bedding. There is every facility provided, including dish washer tablets, washing powder etc etc. Off road parking is provided and even a locked shed contains outside furniture, BBQ etc. The two "living rooms" are lovely, both with comfy furniture to seat everyone, we favoured the kitchen diner with the views of the sea. It was lovely to wake up, open the curtains and enjoy the sea views whilst still laid in bed. Seatown is in an ideal position, a few minutes walk from shops, restaurants and the harbour. Free access to WiFi was an added bonus. We will have no hesitation about revisiting this lovely cottage. Christmas tree was a lovely touch too !!

"Nice cosy cottage in perfect location"
We stayed here for 4 nights, the cottage was cosy and warm and opposite the beach perfectly sitiated, it could have done with a bit of a spruce up, the dishcloth and spomge were from previous tenants and still had food particles on them, it would have been nicer to leave a clean one for each guest as no one wants to use somelses dishcloth, also the bathrom floor was very dusty round the edges and one of the single beds was slanting and in need of a new mattress, it was sleeping on a boat each tie you turned over you nearly fell out of bed!! Overall a pleasant stay but not one I would stay in again,
I am so sorry that the cottage was not up to your expectations. I have already spoken to the cleaner about the bathroom, the dishcloth and sponge, and this has been rectified. I now include clean ones along with the rest of the laundry to ensure she doesn’t run out. It was an oversight on this occasion, but will not happen again. I also really appreciate you bringing to my attention that the bed was slanting and uncomfortable, as that is the sort of thing you don’t pick up on if you are just making up the bed. We do also tend to redecorate in the quieter winter months, and are this year planning new carpets on the stairs and new worksurfaces in the kitchen as well as the usual lick of paint to freshen it up.

This was our fourth visit to Seatown Cottage, which is the best place in the Lossie to stay. The house is perfect and is a home from home. A short walk onto one of the best beaches in the UK. We will be hoping to return for a fifth visit soon.

"Amazing Cottage - We will definately be back!!"
We stayed for a week in June and had the most amazing time. Lossiemouth and the surrounding area was perfect, and the cottage exceeded all our expectations. The owners have thought of everything to make this a holiday to remember. The welcome pack was much appreciated after a very loooooong drive from Birmingham. We would have no hesitation in recommending to family and friends, and we will definately be booking again next year.

"Blissful New Year Break"
We visited for 3 days over New Year with our 2 "children" in their early twenties. We absolutely loved staying at seatown cottage. Very well equipped kitchen, comfortable beds and a great heating system which kept the whole house cosy. The welcome pack was super with extra "bits & pieces" left in the kitchen by previous visitors. In many holiday cottages these are removed (stock cubes, herbs hot chocolate etc). Location is perfect for a walk to local restaurants and of course the amazing beach is literally across the road. There was even a christmas tree which added to the festive spirit. We will definitely be going back and have recommended to all our family & friends. Book it ! you won't be disappointed!
