Self-Catering Reviews

Mr Jackson
September 2020
Very close to the sea and amenities.. Local fish and chip shop very good, didn't try local ice cream, supposed to be very good. Cottage very good but starting to look a bit shabby, carpets on stairs, controls missing on cooker, freezer started playing up and couldn't be used for ice cream.

The cottage was exceedingly well equipped and in a beautiful location.. Directions to it were easy to follow and key collection was very easy. Would definitely book this cottage again

Have stayed at this property 2 or 3 times in the past and once again it has lived up to expectations.. A great base for a family beach holiday. Great access to the beach and plenty of great walks in and around Cullen.

If you want to get away from it all this charming seaside cottage is a must..

We arrived in Cullen after driving 500 miles through storm Dennis.. Parking at the property was a little tight. It was quiet, but parking may be an issue in the summer months if all the properties are being used. We have been to Cullen on three previous occasions and have always found the village to be very quiet off-season, possibly due to the high number of holiday properties in the area. If you want peace and tranquility, Cullen is the place to come. The property has two points of access; one into the hallway and one to the kitchen. This is really useful when taking out rubbish and needing fresh air when cooking. The kitchen is equipped with all the essentials and the owner provided a few bits and pieces, and left items from previous visitors which was very helpful. The kitchen is very spacious and has a lovely family table to have dinner together. The kitchen and lounge are separated by double doors. Sky-lights throughout the property show that it has been modernised. Also, with the property being close to the beach, having wood laminate floor is a nice idea, so that sand can be brushed away. Central heating is excellent which is controlled by a thermostat in the hallway. All bedrooms were clean, with bedding and sufficient towels provided. The bedrooms have blinds on the windows that block out the light completely! Ideal for a good night’s sleep. A small collection of books are available with a toy box. WiFi works fine. Good 4G signal in the property too. There must have been signal improvement in the area, because we visited Cullen in 2016 and had no signal at all! To summarise we cannot really fault the property. The owner has made efforts to modernise it and provide all the comforts that you need. Ideal for any family that just want peace and quiet. Great opportunity to do some beach walking. Check out the cliff walk to Portknockie, or head the other direction to the pet cemetery. The village is limited for shops with no cash point machine. However, there is a mobile cash machine that pops into the village and you can get cash-back from the village co-op. Great Chinese take-away. Head out to Buckie or Elgin for more shops. Tesco store at Buckie just off the main road. Baxter’s shop and Spey Bay are nice. The bridge giving you access to the beach at Lossiemouth is closed so it’s worth checking this before heading out there. Thank you for a great holiday. Hope to visit again. Highly recommend.

We enjoyed our stay at the the cottage.. It was great for a winter break, was warm and cosy, and the heating very easy to control. The cottage was comfortable, and had everything we needed. Seatown is a quaint little place with very narrow streets and houses packed close together. The cottage doesn't have views, but it's a short walk to the harbour, and a lovely area to explore.

Very pleasant cottage to stay in.. Next door neighbour who was mother in law to owner called in to make sure we were okay and to let her know if we had any problems.Warm and comfortable,warmth was appreciate as we had snow whilst there and also grandchildren who insisted on paddling semi bathing in the sea!!Will come to stay again.

This is very much a family holiday setting.. We knew this because we took our to children to Cullen every year in the 1980's and early 1990's. Our children are raising their own families. We are now in our 70's and came up to refresh our memories of happy days of long ago. Reasonably good weather, Great scenery, beautiful sunsets, and looking at the lit sky in the North at Midsummer midnight. What more could an older couple ask? Yes, a corker of a macaroni and cheese lunch at Christie's Garden Centre, Fochabers. And the local people are friendly and helpful. WiFi fine. Broadband so-so but that would be outwith to owner's control. Being used to gas cookers, we had initial problems acquainting ourselves with the electric oven. We reported this to the owner. We had our car. Necessary because the 35 bus is I think one per hour. There is no baker, butcher, petrol station or bank in Cullen; and no ATM. Buckie is 5 miles away. Drive, or catch a bus, or go on-line (that won't fill your petrol tank). Or walk - if you are fit! To recap, there is plenty for the older client to enjoy e.g. Glenlivet, Portsoy, Baxters on Speyside. But - Cullen is a child's paradise. (We were very impressed with the upstairs accommodation in the cottage, and with the facilities available for the younger holidaymaker.)

This was my second time visiting this lovely cottage it is close to beach and other amineties. Was worried about lack of WiFi but was installed when we got there. Owners must have listened to reviewers as matresses were comfortable than last time I visited. Overall a lovely experience.

We had a fantastic holiday! The cottage is lovely and cosy perfect for families everything we needed was catered for. The location is perfect less then a minute walk to a beautiful clean beach where we were lucky enough to see a dolphin. We had a wonderful time and shall definitely be back.

Parking is an issue in the narrow streets but we were allowed to park in front of the owners mother in laws house.. No heating was on when we arrived but soon sorted it out .But other than that it is a nice cottage to stay in plenty of room ,close to the sea and shops ..

The location is beyond words, absolutely stunning and definitely worth the 11+ hour drive even with 4 kids in tow.. ..

Absolutely perfect as described in a lovely location in the heart of a small seatown village
September 2016
A very lovely cottage that with a few tweaks could be 5 star. This cottage has everything you could need and is beautifully decorated, modern and very spacious. The kitchen was well stocked and you could easily cook a meal if you wished to. We were kindly left some delicious shortbread which was much appreciated. The tweaks needed are slightly better cleaning, WI-FI installing, particularly as there is no phone signal and the biggest thing of all is new mattresses on both double beds. The bed in the downstairs bedroom was very, very uncomfortable and as hard as a rock. The mattresses are the only things that would stop me from returning but if these were replaced I would return tomorrow. The location is idyllic and only 2 minutes walk from the beach and harbour. Cullen has everything you need, including a fantastic fish and chip shop, ice cream shop and delightful cafe. The surrounding area is beautiful with plenty to do and see.

The cottage was bright, welcoming and warm. The area is full of wonderful and interesting walks. For anyone wishing a quiet, restful break, this area should be high on their list.
Mr Beresford
September 2014
The cottage was superb and we particularly liked all the decor. Cullen itself has a wonderful safe beach, golf course, a pleasant harbour to sit at with adequate seating around it. There are several lovely beaches nearby and also walks. We had a great week here and look forward to returning and the ice cream Is every bit as good as we remember it!

Have been to Cullen every year for the last 5 years, although this was the first time in a cottage. The cottage was absolutely excellent in every respect.

The cottage was all we could ask for and more. The people and surroundings were fantastic, just everything you could wish for including the weather.

Nice cottage, great location, would go back for sure.
August 2013
A lovely, modern and very clean and homely cottage. The kitchen had everything you would need to comfortably cook for your family (if you felt the need). The cottage sits a little way back from the beautiful beach at Seatown, and its many lovely walks, and close drive to Spey Bay and other lovely costal areas. Don't miss the lovely fish and chip shop in the town!
July 2013
We enjoyed a lovely week in the cottage, it is very well equipped and the location is very convenient for exploring the local area. We would not hesitate to return in future

The cottage was homely with everything you could need. Spotlessly clean and well looked after. The tulips in the kitchen window were a nice touch. Loads of toys for any children who visit.

We had a wonderful week in this lovely comfortable cottage...Everything you needed including toys for young children, seats for the beach, buckets and spades and even picnic items. The cottage was spotless, lovely comfortable beds with a lovely homely feel.. The beach was within walking distance also a golf club. What made it even better was the very good weather we had.....
May 2013
This cottage is spacious, comfortable and ideally located for visiting the Moray coast. The rooms have been beautifully decorated and the seaside theme is tasteful.We were particularly impressed with the highly efficient and easy to operate heating system and believe me, you need a warm place to stay at all times of the year in this area! Anyone with mobility issues would find getting upstairs difficult but there is a bedroom downstairs.We would recommend the owners to install a shower curtain rather than the shower screen as putting on the taps to run the bath is not easy unless you have very, very long arms! As another reviewer pointed out the beds are rather on the firm side but we both slept well. All in all, a lovely cottage and one we would hope to return to.

An absolutely beautiful cottage and so tastefully decorated and furnished and excellently equipped.

We found the cottage after asking a couple of locals and were impressed by the spaciousness and decor on entering. kitchen, 3 bedrooms and bathroom clean and tidy. beds were a bit on the firm side but otherwise comfortable. If you have a family member who has physical handicaps, there were no support/grab rails at toilet or bath. Owners may want to consider installing these? Kitchen had all essentials and local shops nearby. Cottage 150-200 yards walk from seafront. we visited 2 local "hostelries" and were impressed by the warmth and kindness from the barstaff. If you want a relaxing time,or,a place to stay while touring the north-east/inverness/aberdeen areas,then Cullen is ideally centrally located and the cottage was lovely. Mrs.Mta.

85 Seatown is a deceptively spacious cosy cottage. Very quiet area yet close to the harbour and Cullen's main street. The location was everything here.
Dr Hardie

Beautifully re-furbished and spacious accommodation, especially the 'show home' standard kitchen! Seatown is a fabulous location in the relaxing haven that is Cullen - fabulous beach and scenery.
Mrs Anderson
July 2011
The location was excellent, the standard of the cottage overall was excellent and I would highly recommend the cottage to friends and others. I would definitely go back.
Mrs Henderson
June 2011
The cottage was lovely and cosy and had been modernised very tastefully. The kitchen was particularly good and I would recommend this very highly. The town of Cullen is quiet but has many things in its favour such as local shops within walking distance from the cottage and a fantastic coastline.
Mr Horner
May 2011
We thought this the best cottage we have stayed in; beautifully appointed and in a marvellous location yards from a quiet beach and harbour. If travelling with young children, the small but perfectly formed Macduff Aquarium and Spey Bay Wildlife Centre (both short drives from Cullen) are unmissable.
