Mitchell's Cottage - Gardenstown

Scotland: Grampian and Aberdeen: Gardenstown

4 star (Visit Scotland)

Seaside village surrounded by sandstone cliffs

Mitchell's Holiday Cottage is a 4 star self catering holiday cottage located in the pretty seaside village of Gardenstown, in North-east Scotland. Close to the beach, harbour and pub, the cottage has just been refurbished and modernised in winter 2007/2008 to be a welcoming home-from-home. Mitchell's Holiday Cottage has the traditional charm of a 19th century fisherman's cottage with an open fire in the living room, together with a high standard of modern accommodation for 5 to 6 people in three bedrooms. The cottage boasts a newly-renovated highly-equipped kitchen with all new appliances (washing machine, dishwasher, fridge freezer, microwave and Cannon cooker) which are all A-rated, and a new tumble drier. The cottage also has a new luxury modern bathroom including a P-shaped shower bath, and there is a separate shower room on the ground floor. There is also a fold-out bed for the single bedroom so an extra person can be accommodated. Mitchell's Holiday Cottage is in a quiet location and has sea views from two of the bedrooms. Gardenstown has an abundance of breathtaking scenery and the village nestles below large red sandstone cliffs and faces out towards the North Sea. Mitchell's Holiday Cottage has a cosy and romantic, but yet family feel to it. We've made it so we'd want to stay in it ourselves, so there's a coffee machine in the kitchen, a nice big bath for having long soaks, and the bigger bedrooms have all-cotton bedlinen. We love staying here and exploring the area, and hope you do too - we look forward to welcoming you!

Garden / Grounds:
The north-east coast of Scotland is one of Scotlandís hidden treasures. Away from the tourist hoards, this gem of an area has big, light filled skies, amazing long sandy beaches, and friendly folk!

Views, wildlife and local environment:
Because you are on the coast, the sea and its natural bounty has played a huge part in the fortunes of the area. There are plenty of sea leisure activities to do locally, from a simple boat ride to try and find dolphins or amaze at the birdlife clinging to the cliffs, to kite surfing and diving.
