Lilybank provided us with amazing views, peace, space and comfort. The cottage was beautiful, well equipped and well located. We absolutely loved it and we weren't ready to leave.
Rosie and her husband were also very welcoming and helpful. A perfect holiday cottage!

“Wonderful, stylish, home from home in the perfect location!”

We took the entire family, including two toddlers to Lilybank for a long weekend - we were not disappointed!
There is not much to say other than we were in awe of the house and it's views!
The house itself was absolutely spotless and had everything you needed for a most pleasant stay - a home away from home!
It was very open and light in each of the large immaculate rooms, but also comfortable and set in a peaceful location which could be enjoyed all day sitting at any of the windows admiring the stunning views.
The spacious garden was a welcome retreat for the kids and adults with the lovely weather.
We throughly enjoyed our stay and would recommend to anyone.

“Another fantastic stay at Lilybank Cottage”
Reviewed March 24, 2015 for a stay in March 2015

I have just returned from another stay at Lilybank Cottage and I was not disappointed. This was my fourth stay in the last 3.5 years and it was just as good as the first, second and third stay. This time it was a family trip for myself, my husband, my daughter and her boyfriend and we spent 3 fabulous nights enjoying the house and the views. The house was spotless and comes with everything you need for a comfortable stay. The fresh cut flowers and home baking were a lovely welcome. The views are stunning and I doubt I'll ever get board of them. We spent many hours sitting on the window seat just reading, relaxing and looking out over the sea. I'm already contemplating my next return.

“Absolutely fabulous - beautiful,stylish and comfortable - perfect for our family holiday.”
Reviewed March 20, 2015 for a stay in March 2015

We thoroughly enjoyed our family gathering at Lilybank. It was spotlessly clean & provided for all our needs, with plenty of space for us all (7 in total). The sun lounge is magnificent. All the rooms are spacious and the whole property is decorated & furnished to a very high standard. I think it is the best self-catering property I have ever stayed in. The owners were nearby & on hand & welcoming, without being obtrusive. It was lovely to look out over the sea and be so near the coast in this beautiful part of the world.

Liked best: The overall ambience of the property - beautifully decorated, comfortable, with view across the sea.
Liked least: I struggled with the locks on the doors - other people coped ok but there was a definite knack to them & I only managed on the last day!

Just back from a lovely week at Lilybank. Enjoyed the fact it is on the coast but also has country feel. Kids enjoyed playing in the large garden, and was a great base to explore the local area. House was well equipped and rooms were immaculate. Owner met us with homemade biscuits and gave some good pointers for local amenities. Would definitely recommend a stay here.

“Outatanding!”

A fantastic house! We booked the property as it was close to a family wedding. I don't think we could have found anywhere better. The house was very spacious, comfortable and stylishly furnished with quality fittings. The kitchen was huge and contained everything we needed. There were 4 generous double bedrooms and 3 bathrooms. The beds were very comfortable and had feather and down quilts. There were extensive views of the coastline from most of the windows. The only down-side to our stay was the awful weather, but we didn't mind so much spending extra time in such a lovely house.
Our party included 3 small children who really enjoyed their rare opportunities to go to the beach rock pooling. They also enjoyed the playgrounds in Montrose and Johnshaven and the open air pool at Stonehaven. Highlights for the adults included seafood dinner at the Anchor at Johnshaven and a wet afternoon in the Art Gallery in Aberdeen.
