“Cosey wee home from home”
Lovely cosey cottage, very comfy beds. Has all you need for your self catering stay with the exception of bowls...think there was 1 bowl that we shared for cereal. We brought the travel cot also...if one was available in the cottage that would have been good, as less to carry with us. Not too problematic though. Theres no wifi which would have been handy but you can live without it for a few days. Keyholder (Liz) was very friendly and very helpful. Locals friendly too. Cruden Bay beach, walking distance away - stunning golden stretch of sand/very clean...probably one of the best beaches I've seen here and abroad. Is definitely worth a visit in the summer months as it was pretty cold when we were there. Great wee playpark for kids just 5 mins drive from the cottage...big zip wire, climbing frame, chute and picnic area etc. Ellon town nearby is a bit busier than Cruden Bay, with more shops restaurants etc and handy for the new swimming pool which we attended with our 2 yr old son. Pool was pleasantly warmer than council pools back home and the changing areas heated. If we were there a bit longer i.e. a week we would have explored the surrounding areas a bit more. The chinese takeaway in Ellon was not to our liking at all but the local one 2 mins from the cottage may be worth a try. No downside at all really but we kept saying that wee fire pit or chimnea would have been lovely for the back garden to enable us to sit outside at night as it was too cold to put the table and chairs out. All in all a great stay!! We'd go back...when its warmer
Owner's reply: Hi Elaine. Thank you for your review. Much appreciated. Its a pity that you did not go to the chinese in the village because it is superb. Maybe next time. Sorry about the fire pit/chiminea but it is a health and safety issue because Slains is a wooden house. Hope to see you in the Summer. We will have a travel cot by then. Best regards. Shona
“Clean, comfortable property, with everything you need for a comfortable stay.”
Only 40 mins drive from Aberdeen airport. Clean, comfortable property, with everything you need for a comfortable stay. Plenty to explore - but you would definitely need a car to get the most out of your visit. Billy was very helpful and friendly.
Owner's reply: Hi Danny, Thank you very much for your Review, I am glad that you enjoyed exploring the North East area. Best regards, Shona
“Slains Cottage, so peaceful”
Slains Cottage is near to golf courses, and if you go down Station road a very nice Chinese take away. Local shops in Main Road (Street? Sorry memory loss). Cruden Bay a smallish town with a regular bus service. As for Slains Cottage, well appointed with every need catered for, The Garden neat and tidy (thanks Billy!). Cottage clean as well! This part of Scotland seems to be off the tourist trail, which means no traffic jams. Cruden Bay is near Peterhead, and not far from Ellon, Aberdeen in easily reached at least by car. Slains Cottage very reasonable price and very handy to visit wife's family. Will come again if possible. Had a great time,even the weather was not too 'Scottish'
“Superb holiday rental”
Shona has been superb in helping us with any questions we had. The cottage is very clean and has everything you would need. Great location for what we wanted, highly recommend staying here.
Very warm, comfortable and well equipped cottage. The area was nice and peaceful and the welcome was very helpful and friendly. Would definitely stay there again.
“Very comfortable accommodation”
We where welcomed by mike who instructed us where everything was and how to use everything and was always on hand for advice. The accommodation was very well equipped . The bed was very comfy ,it was also nice to sit in decent chairs .we will be back soon
“Clean, compact and reasonably priced”
Pleasant accommodation with friendly, helpful owner and care-taker. Rear overlooking open field. Close to beach and dramatic cliffs with lots of seabirds including mainland Puffins at Bullars O' Buchan. Good for walking. Peterhead nearby and good coastal run to Portsoy.
“First visit ever to Cruden Bay Aberdeenshire!”
We were greeted on our arrival by a really, helpful, charming, friendly man who gave us a conducted tour of the property and explained the workings of the electric goods etc. He also pointed us in the direction of the local shops etc. which was very helpful. The cottage itself was very nice and was equipped with all the necessary kitchen facilities you would need. Everything was spotlessly clean including the bedding which was very important to me! Everything was comfortable and pleasant - a home from home really. I would highly recommend the cottage to future guests. We did a lot of exploring and found lovely beaches and walks. Ideal for the local Golf Clubs also. All in all, a delightful cottage!
“A homely and clean chalet in a very tidy little village”
We were shown the chalet I would call it, by Mike. He was very friendly and made us feel like we could call on him anytime 'if needed anything at all'. Everything was thought of and supplied. We didn't find anything we needed that wasn't there. It was nice and warm and clean. DVD's to watch. I especially like the lists of shops, library, descriptions of the area; a DVD on that too. For those who had never been here before; it is great. One thing I wasn't prepared for; the kitchen knives, though of reasonable quality, were so blunt, they wouldn't cut butter. Otherwise everything else was perfect. Oh, and parking is best across the road; not on the road as advised.
Owner's reply: Good afternoon Terence Thank you very much for your kind comments. It is good to see that we are maintaining our standards at Slains Cottage. I must apologise for the blunt knives, something that we do not check on enough obviously. However, just to let you know I have ordered a new set of Knives and hopefully this will alleviate any problems for future visitors. Best regards Shona Farnes
“Peaceful and well equipped holiday cottage!”
Slains Cottage is a well equipped holiday cottage set in the lovely village of Cruden Bay. I recommend it as a touring base for sightseers or golfers as there several great golf courses in the area. Comfortable and very peaceful with everything provided for a get away from it all break.
