“Perfect pet-friendly cottage within seconds of the beach”
Reviewed December 15, 2016 for a stay in December 2016

This is our 2nd time of booking and just booked for march. Love this place - from the welcome package to the location. The cottage has everything you need from liquid soap, cleaning stuff, towels, toilet rolls, dog bowls, biscuits to lovely comfortable beds.
Most cottages don't give you anything but you get it all here with fresh milk, tea bags, fresh ground coffee and even toilet rolls!
A couple of seconds and you are on the beach so perfect for the dog and will miss looking out to sea each day.

“Week in North East Scotland”
Reviewed June 28, 2016 for a stay in June 2016

Stayed in Pebble Bay Cottage in small fishing village of Whitehills. Cottage very comfortable, warm with central heating and gas fire. Extremely well equipped catering for all our needs.
Beds very comfortable, bedrooms spacious with plenty of storage space. Cottage well placed for exploring the lovely north east coast of Scotland.

“excellent cottage in a great location”
Reviewed April 20, 2016 for a stay in April 2016

I have visited Whitehills many times to visit my Mum and family but this was the first stay at Pebble Bay Cottage. A great holiday cottage in a great location, near the sea front, local shop and fish and chip shop.
The cottage is a like a tardis and has loads of room downstairs and upstairs, so comfortably fitted 5 adults and 1 child (even the dog). The welcome pack was brilliant with a gift for the dog. The kitchen had every utensil you could think of and there are plenty of towels and blankets to use.
spacious bedrooms with lots of nice touches such as alarm clocks and the beds were very comfortable.
Will definatley be visiting again. The wi-fi was excellent also.

“Great location, clean, cosy and spacious accommodation”
Reviewed April 18, 2016 for a stay in April 2016

Lovely spacious cottage, owner very pleasant and accommodating (even when we locked ourselves out and needed her to come back with a spare key!) Just up from the shore, spent hours rock pooling. Play park not far away, great restraunt at harbour. Lots of lovely seashore walks. Great location for investigating area around about. Just one comment, could do with drying area or tumble drier for those wet days when the kids fall in the rock pools, however cant have everything and all in all a great stay!

Party of 4 adults and 2 children and this cottage was ideal....very spacious.

Exceptionally clean and owner was extremely friendly and welcoming. Very thoughtful with a welcoming pack which was a lovely touch (including fresh coffee and chocolate which pleased the husband and children no end!). Cottage was very warm and cosy.

Have close family in Whitehills and nearby Banff so have hired various cottages in the past......this is the only one so far however that we will definitely been returning to!
