Holly Hoose description

Holiday home
Holly Hoose is a detached, stone fisherman's cottage in the village of Findochty, less than three miles from Buckie in Scotland. The cottage has two double rooms, one of which has a king-size double bed, a single room and a family bathroom. On the ground floor, there is a kitchen with a dining area, a separate formal dining room and two sitting rooms, one of which has a cosy open fire. There is roadside parking outside the property and to the rear, a large private patio with furniture. Holly Hoose is a great base for friends and families to stay while exploring the north east coast of Scotland.

The fishing village of Findochty sits on the edge of the natural harbour known as Crooked Haven. Findochty is used more by leisure sailors than fisherman, whilst the fishing boats have moved down the coast to Buckie. Findochty has a small sheltered beach at Long Head and a pub on the harbour front. With the Moray Coast to explore, with its Whisky Trail, abundance of historic houses and gardens, sparkling golden sands and hospitable inns, this is a superb base from which to enjoy the delightful north east coast of Scotland.

From the lush green farmlands of the Borders to the ruggedness of the Highlands, the Scots are proud of their land and identity. Scotland also has some of Britain's best beaches with glorious stretches of clean sand over which to roam.

Gas central heating with open fire. Electric oven and hob, microwave, fridge/freezer, washing machine, tumble dryer, dishwasher, 2 x TVs with Freeview, DVD, phone for incoming calls, WiFi, selection of books, games and DVDs.

Lovely and warm house , good shower, could do with new pans, and cutlery as they bent when eating, but other than that we enjoyed our stay and would definitely go back, we didn't light fire but.. There was coal and logs in shed, five mins from pub and beach, plenty of walks for Toby our black lab.

This is the second time we have stayed in this property and we will be back next year.. It is an excellent base for exploring and the house really suits us with our 2 golden retrievers. We have used Sykes several times and have found them to be a good company to deal with. Plus they have a large selection of properties.

House nice and clean and comfortable, well equipped but needs a little updating.. A welcome pack would be nice. We’ve spent nearly £700 on a weeks accommodation before and had a nice pack with local produce such as milk, eggs, bread, jam. This encourages visitors to shop locally having tried the products, and also if you’ve had an 8 hour drive, arrived late and been unable to bring cold milk a cuppa makes everything right!

An accurate contact name and number would have been useful as the key holder/caretaker had been changed 2 weeks prior to our holiday.. A welcome pack ie milk tea and coffee would have been nice after a 7-8 hour drive. Decent furniture to sit outside as it was broken in places and wobbly. Otherwise the house was lovely. The area is very quiet and if children visiting not a lot for them to do in Findochty as it literally is a fishing village.

Very comfortable, warm accommodation, well equipped.. Well placed to explore the Moray coast. You can walk the Moray coastal trail in two directions, directly from the house. Local shop and pub only 5 minutes walk from the house. Would certainly recommend .
