    Property description
    Rental Home – 
    2 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 4
    The Mission Hall was previously an old Church of Scotland and has been featured in magazines and newspapers for its architectural flair, style and humour in the owner's rennovation project. It is a very special place to stay.

    This house has the wow factor! There is a breath-taking gallery-cum-dining room with a dark blue coloured concrete floor and pale blue “spatolato” finish walls and a wooden boxed ceiling. A specially designed crystal table sits on the flag-stones (originally covering the aisle of the church) in the middle of the room. When you look up, you’ll see how the owner has recycled the sides of the pews (still with numbers on!). There are 3 antique pitch-pine doors with impressive brass handles, two leading to the small bathrooms and a double one leading to the cosy sitt...

    Additional Location Information
    Classed as one of the best preserved conservation villages in Scotland, this little jewel sits right on the wall of the North Sea. Yes, actually on the wall ... no traffic ... only the sound of the waves lashing, the pebbles rolling to and fro under the changing tide and the seagulls crying. A ten-minute walk from the car park/barrow park, (each cottage has its own wheelbarrow to help get daily provisions - and furniture and building materials! - along to the house), maybe catching sight of a fox, a weasel or even on rare occasions a wild cat on the path.

    From Crovie you can look out to sea and be rewarded with the spectacular sight of a shoal of bottle-nosed dolphins (sometimes up to 35 at a time) and even a whale or a shark. There are two boats which take outings onto the North Sea and this is an event not to be missed. You can take a 20 minute walk along the pebbled beach to Gardenstown, where you can find a small grocer's shop. The small Gardenstown Arms serves meals as well...

4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013 for a stay in August 2013

The house is interesting and has been renovated well although the sitting room area is quite small. The bedrooms are comfortable and the dining room is large and lends itself to entertaining. We were irritated by the houseflies and had to buy window stickers to control them. Not sure what that was about as it wasn't over warm when we... more

We arrived in the afternoon in a wild and wet weather day..875 steps to the cottage from where we parked the car...yes it's the 2nd last cottage along the promenade. With the promise of a fire going we carried on until we walked into the cottage..it was cold and looked very miserable...started the fire and warmed up. Proceeded to have... more

Aah, beautiful Crovie (pronounced Crivvy!). A long row of cottages facing the sea, and nothing else – bliss. All you have to do is barrow your belongings down to your cottage (it’s a long barrow: the Mission Hall is right at the end) and set up camp on the bench with a glass of something nice, and watch the sunset.... more

I'm so happy you found a 4* Listed Building at the end of the village! Just one point: Although I, myself, prefer only 2 guests at a time in my... more
