“Nice cottage but needs a few finishing touches”

A lovely cottage in a beautiful part of Scotland.

The cottage had everything you can ask for, it was very well equipped and the attention to detail was very good. The town the cottage was in was very friendly and the local people seemed very nice, we had a lovely experience from the lady in the Tourist Information Centre in Fraserburgh, very helpful indeed.

The cottage description was not as accurate as we would have liked, for example the garden as described was a bench on some gravel, it wasn't very private at all. The bathroom had a very small bath with no handrails which for anyone with mobility issues would have made access very difficult. Parking was mentioned on the description as being ample but this is really not the case. Road access to the property is via the harbour wall which is quite narrow and parking here didn't really feel safe especially at high tide. In high season we feel the parking could be a major issue.

Also the neighbours next door were a little noisy on occasions, children running around the side of the property and we did feel that they were intruding on our peace and quiet which is what made us choose this cottage over others.

We enjoyed our stay in the cottage and we did leave feeling rested and refreshed but a few things do need to be addressed to make this cottage a much better holiday retreat.

How easy was it to book the property? How helpful were the directions to the property?
How easy was key pickup/access to the property? Overall condition of the property
