Our second cottage in Lossiemouth is located next door to our popular Seatown Cottage, in the middle of a row of 4. It is a traditional fisherman's cottage, built around 1850, and originally a thatched bungalow. Downstairs there is a large double bedroom with king size bed, a newly fitted bathroom (with shower over the bath) and a lounge. This has a woodburning stove to keep the cottage warm on those long winter evenings, and opens out into the galley kitchen. Upstairs there are 2 attic rooms. Because of their low ceilings, we have kitted these out as a children's twin room and a 'den' - complete with bean bags, a toy chest and a second TV and DVD player. We do not recommend them for anyone over about 5 foot tall!
Outside there is a garden shed, and a fairly sheltered and secluded garden, although it is not enclosed.
The cottage is ideal for couples, or those with young families. Well behaved dogs are welcome, but we do ask that they are not allowed on the furniture or in the bedroom. It provides comfortable and cosy accommodation in a stunning location, just opposite the bridge to the fabulous East Beach and an easy walk to the woods along the river's edge. WIFI enabled.
With many budget airlines flying direct to Inverness and Aberdeen airports, and all the major hire car companies located at the airports, the cottage is easily accessible. It is about 45 minutes drive from Inverness and 1.5hours from Aberdeen along the main A96.
There are buses and trains in Elgin, but as the cottage is fairly rural, they are not necessarily the most frequent and a car is recommended.
Lossiemouth calls itself the 'Jewel of Moray' and as a holiday destination it is a real gem. This area boasts a higher than average number of sunshine hours, which may come as a pleasant surprise - we are in Scotland after all! With 2 RAF bases in the vicinity, there are probably more restaurants, bars and entertainment venues than you would expect for a town of this size (altho' they are easily avoided if you want!). There are also local shops and a medium sized supermarket. For the 24 hour mega stores, you need to head 6 miles down the road to Elgin, where there is also a leisure centre with ice rink, cinema and bowling alley.
Moray stretches from the peaks of the Cairngorms down to beautiful beaches and picturesque fishing villages along the Moray Firth. Much of the landscape is dominated by the River Spey, the second longest and fastest flowing river in Scotland. It also incorporates Speyside, home to around half the distilleries in Scotland. In fact, this area has the highest concentration of distilleries anywhere in the world. Many of them including such famous names as Glenfiddich, The Glenlivet, The Macallan and Glen Moray welcome visitors with more information to be found on the Malt Whisky Trail. If you are visiting over the May Bank Holiday, look out for the Spirit of Speyside Whisky Festival – whisky, music, food and fun, it’s a great way to meet other whisky lovers, whether you are a novice or a connoisseur!
"Wonderful Week - Beautiful Cottage" by Jane on September 7th 2014
This is a beautiful well kept cottage we were looking forward to staying here for many months as we booked well in advance, from booking to arrival we were kept very well informed by the owners regarding the booking, deposit, balance due, directions, local info etc... and when we arrived we were very pleased with the cottage. It is set in a wonderful location along the sea front of Lossiemouth. The cottage is very roomy which we were very pleased with the lounge and kitchen are well kitted out along with the wonderful log burner! The bathroom and master bedroom are also located on the ground floor and are beautiful. Up-stairs is the twin room decorated lovely for children along with book cases filled with books and games and then a second room for children to play. The cottage was very clean and there was everything from washing up liquid, bin bags, shower gel, washing powder, foil, salt & pepper etc.....a lot of what you need to just get started. The welcome pack was a lovely touch. We loved our stay here and would recommend this with no hesitations - we would like to think we will stay here again in the future.
"Fantastic break" by Steve on June 26th 2014
Stayed for a week at this lovely property. Location very good, just across from the beach and some beautiful walks and scenery on the door step. The property was excellent, with everything you needed and all in good condition. We are looking to book again for next year. What a find.
"One of the best cottages we have stayed in" by Elspeth on June 2nd 2014
We visit family in Lossimouth regularly and this is by far the best cottage we have stayed in. The location is perfect just a 30 second walk to the beach and a few minutes to the shops. The cottage was superbly equipped and included so much more equipment than we expected from a big selection of DVDs for the adults and children and an excellently equipped toy room which our 1 year old loved, there was even thoughtfully provided children's cutlery and cups and even a baby monitor! The welcome pack was a lovely surprise after a long drive. We will defiantly be staying at Seatown again.
