“Quiet costal village cottage”
Reviewed September 8, 2016 for a stay in June 2016

Very well kept and appointed holiday rental. Close to the sea and Findochty harbour.
We were there for the worst weather in 2016 so far, torrential rain. Despite this we got out and visited old haunts during the dry spells, and when impossible the cottage was comfortable to lounge around in.

Date of stay: June 2016

“Perfect cottage for anniversary break”
Reviewed March 13, 2016 for a stay in March 2016

We have stayed in a few holiday cottages before, however this one is the most perfect for us. Clare and Steve have made it so that you feel instantly relaxed as soon as you arrive, with it being so homely and comfortable. The welcome pack is excellent and very generous. We enjoyed walking our dog round the village with it's quaint harbour setting and small beach. Also the Moray coastal paths, exploring Cullen and the lovely beach. The Admirals Inn was great for getting in with the dog and we ate in the bar. Made for a perfect romantic 30th Anniversary holiday.

“Couthie Cottage”
Reviewed September 5, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Just back from a fantastic week at No.4 Duke Street and only have the highest regard for the quality of stay and experience that the cottage affords. We had great days down the Hythe and Findochty Bech with the dog, walking along the shore to the caves and adventures futher afield to the beautiful beachs and harbours of Findhorn, Roseisle, Cullen, Sandend, Pennan, Crovie, Portsoy and Portknockie. Day trips to Findlater Castle in a blowing gale just made it even more dramatic. Clare and Steve made us & our collie very welcome and the cottage providing a very comfortable, cosy base for all of the above with the added benefit of alfreso dining in the terraced garden. Top tip is to speak to the lobster boats coming into Findochty harbour and ask for some lobster / crabs for that special treat!.

Can't recommend the cottage & location highly enough.

“Perfect holiday home”
Reviewed September 3, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

people found this review helpful

Wonderfully comfy, snug little cottage, in spitting distance of the sea and two (smallish but nice) beaches. Very quiet street, you only hear the seagulls.
Cosy indoors, great outdoor space, two terraces with a view of the sea.
The owners have great taste and have obviously thought of everything - and they are most helpful should you have questions, problems etc.
Findochty is a fabulous base for excursions along the spectacular coast or inland, e.g. plenty of castles, gardens, ruins, wool shops, biscuit factories to visit.
We couldn't have stayed in a nicer place. Thank you, Clare and Steve!

A fantastic cosy well decorated cottage one of the best cottages we have stayed in. The welcome hamper and flowers were much appreciated as was the warm towels . Had a great week a little cold but nice to know when you go back to duke street it will be nice warm and cosy. Did a lot of walking on this beautiful coast line. Even saw the dolphins twice .If we are ever in the area again we will definitely stay at duke street.

“Fantastic Holiday Cottage”

people found this review helpful

We had such a great stay at Findochty Cottage. The whole process from booking to arrival was very straightforward. Clare & Steve made sure we were aware of everything we needed to be at every step of the way. The cottage itself is outstanding. Finished to a very very high standard and complete with everything you could need for a short break. As we stayed over Easter, Clare & Steve had even left an Easter egg for each of us!

We will definitely be rebooking this Cottage the next time we are visiting family.
