Reviewed 5 weeks ago for a stay in December 2017

Steve and Alison warmly welcomed us to a lovely cottage. It was spotless, cosy and welcoming and we had a wonderful stay. The beds were really comfortable and all the bedding and towels were provided. We had great fun just relaxing in the place. The kitchen is really well equipped and we were able to enjoy eating in most nights....

Management response:

Thanks Mike for your review, Steve and I are really pleased you enjoyed your stay and hope to welcome you back soon.

It was a great location to explore the many historical attractions. We visited Dundee, Aberdeen, Braemar Highland Gathering, many castles including Glamis and Dunnottar Castles. We also saw a whale jumping in the North Sea.

Management response:

Thank you for your review glad you had a nice time also we appreciate the fact the cottage was left clean and tidy. Hope to welcome you back again. Alison & Steve

Beautiful cottage set in a lovely garden with stunning sea views. The perfect place for relaxing with friends and family. Cottage is extremely well equipped with every pot, pan, utensil that you could possibly need. Luxurious bedding and plenty of towels are included too. The heating was set to come on (even in August) which was lovely to come "home"...

Management response:

Hi Andrea, it sounds like you all had a very busy and enjoyable week at Spindrift, thank you for taking the time to put a review on. Alison & Steve
