Getting around

There is a bus route which will take you along the coast to Elgin via Cullen or Banff via Portsoy, however a car is recommended!

Interaction with guest

Guests can pick up their keys whenever they arrive from a small key safe. I usually pop in to say hello at some stage during the visit, as I often walk my dogs on Sandend Beach, but I am always only a phone call away if guests want some local information.

“Suberb cottage,stunning location”

Reviewed 4 May 2017

One of the best cottages we have stayed in. Well equipped, extremely clean with great attention to detail. The cottage sits next to a wonderful beach with stunning views. There are great walks right from the cottage and nearby villages. We had an amazing week and would highly recommend this cottage to anyone

“Perfect cottage to relax and chill out!”

Reviewed 29 Mar 2017

Comfortable and spacious, this well appointed cottage offers everything you would need for a getaway break. Close to Portsoy and Cullen for all amenities while Sandend offers great walks on the stunning beach just outside the front door. Would definitely recommend!

“Excellent Holiday house overlooking beautiful beach.”

Reviewed 1 Feb 2017

This house is spotlessly clean, very well equipped and warm and comfortable. It lacks nothing. It sits in an area of outstanding beauty.

“Fantastic place to stay”

Reviewed 28 Jul 2013

What a lovely time we had in April, We were so fortunate with the weather, & even though it was a bit cold outside the house was so cosy & welcoming. It is the first time we have stayed in a cottage that had everything you could think off, Even a breadmaker !! It was lovely sitting in the little window reading my book with the sun shining on the bay & the waves being blown back on themselves producing rainbows. we went out & about visiting different distillery's,& Little villages like Crovie. I think we both felt it was great just being in the house reading & relaxing. felt it would have benefited from unlimited broadband but that was our only shortcoming, will definitely be back

Every aspect of the cottage far exceeded our expectations. The cleanliness, location and value were unsurpassed. We felt as though we were staying in a friend's home. Every need and comfort were provided and the lovely welcoming pack was an especially nice touch. We couldn't be happier with our stay at the beautiful Sandend Cottage!

Thank you so much - we're really glad you enjoyed your holiday in Scotland.

“Christmas by the sea”

Reviewed 28 Jan 2013

Spent a fantastic six days in this cottage which looks directly over Sandend beach. From the moment we stepped inside we all felt at home. A small welcome pack with a bottle of Cava was an added bonus and much appreciated. The place just had a lovely relaxed feel with lots of beutiful sea theme paintings of the local area. Facilities and equipment were exactly as described and it was clear that Wendy and Colin have put a lot of thought into the needs of their customers so whether you are escaping to leave the cooking behind or like us you plan to have Xmas dinner with all the trimmings, you will have all you need at your fingertips. Plenty of information available on what is on and available in the local area. The Moray coast is a lovely part of the world regardless of the season so if you tire of strolling along the beach you can explore the towns and villages along the coast. We would highly recommend Sandend Cottage and will definitely return.

Thank you so much! Glad you enjoyed it - and that there were enough pots and pans for the turkey! Hope to be around to say hello if you visit again! Regards Wendy

“Comfortable, spacious, well-appointed and thoughtfully-designed.”

Reviewed 20 Oct 2012

We had a wonderful week's holiday. Although we had been to Sandend several times, this was the first time we had stayed at (Inchard or) Sandend Cottage. Our daughter-in law's first comments were "Oh, I want to live here!" It was evident that a great deal of thought had gone into planning the visitor's experience, from the welcome pack to the utilities, from the furnishings to the decor. Once we were accustomed to the layout of the cottage and its facilities we soon relaxed and had a very happy time; the good weather was a further bonus! We know the Sandend area well so the extensive range of literature and maps held few surprises but would be of great value to the first-time visitor. We intend to be back in Sandend in the near future so this cottage will most likely be our holiday home again.

“A little bit of holiday Heaven!”

Reviewed 5 Aug 2012

What a find! A beautiful cottage in a fantastic location. We have stayed in many self catering cottages and this has to rate as one of the best. The owners have thought of everything. Anything you could ever need on holiday has been provided for you. Fantastically stocked kitchen, constant hot water, brilliant little touches everywhere. I really don't know where to start. The terrace, garden furniture and BBQ were fantastic to have and we enjoyed many lovely sunny evenings bbqing the local fresh fish we bought, washed down with a nice chilled glass of wine listening to the waves and watching the sun go down. We spent everyday on the beach, surfing and building sandcastles. Beautiful beach and really never very busy. Having the tap at the back door and being able to rinse wetsuits and little feet was a great idea too. The beds were really comfortable as was the lounge furniture. I have nothing but praise about this little gem. We will be booking for next summer and would love to go back in the winter months too to appreciate it in a different way. If you are looking for a Scottish costal holiday, with or without children, then please try this cottage. You will not be disappointed.

Thank you so much! We tried to put everything in the cottage that we'd like to find when we go away - and also take on board suggestions from other guests, so we are always so pleased to hear we are getting it right! Hope to see you when you visit next summer!

“Fabulous cottage in the most amazing location.”

Reviewed 4 Aug 2012

The cottage- absolutely beautiful, excellent standard. Very comfortable with all the facilities one could require. The most amazing sea view where you could just spend hours looking for dolphins or watching the surfers who are not deterred by weather or time of day! Lovely sun room in the back garden which allowed us to enjoy a BBQ even on a day when the weather wasn't the best. The beds are very comfortable and it was such a relaxing feeling to wake up to the sound of waves each morning. The bedroom which was used by our children aged 5 and 3 was even made up with age appropriate bedding, ben10 and princess. They thought this was great. Very thoughtful of Wendy, the owner of the property who I have to add was extremely helpful throughout the booking process. Sandend- what a stunning location. The beach is absolutely perfect, lovely and clean, quiet but not lonely. The children and dogs thought it was wonderful, both managing to get in the sea for a paddle. The nearby areas have a lot to offer, The Shore Pub on the harbour of Portsoy does lovely meals, catering for vegetarians and children as well as meat eaters. The staff were exceptionally friendly. Cullen is a nice area with a few shops, golf course and beach. Lovely safe walks along a disused viaduct. Our party included persons from 3 years through to 61 years, each and every one of us thoroughly enjoyed the holiday and will most certainly return to the location and cottage. Very highly recommended.

“Fantastic Cottage with Stunning Views.”

Reviewed 28 Jul 2012

I stayed at this beautiful cottage with my mother, sister and children for a week in July. It exceeded all our expectations!! The communication with the owner from the outset was great and Wendy had thought of everything to make our stay wonderful, from the welcome pack to the lovely beds and feather duvets. The cottage is much bigger than I had expected which was great as we had 2 dogs with us. The views from the cottage are breathtaking even if the weather is not the best. Nothing like falling asleep to the sound of roaring waves!! We intended to return to Sandend Cottage next summer but this time we are going for 2 weeks!!
