Seatown Cottage is a traditional 2 bedroom fisherman’s cottage built around 1850. Recently refurbished, it provides bright and airy accommodation with stunning views opposite Lossiemouth’s East Beach. Dog friendly. Children welcome. Non smoking. Off road parking. Just a quiet road separates the cottage from the River Lossie and the bridge across to miles of beautiful white sand!
With a large living/dining area as well as a separate lounge, a king size double and a twin room, four people can easily feel at home here. We can also provide a cot or an extra camp bed for those with young families.
Lossiemouth is compact, but has the necessary shops, restaurants and pubs. It is ideal, not just for a beach, golfing or fishing holiday, but also for touring the Malt Whisky and Castle trails, as well as longer day trips to places such as the Cairngorms National Park or Loch Ness. We invite you to take a break with us – you can be assured of a warm welcome at any time of year!
Downstairs there is a spacious living/dining area with a dining room table which seats up to 6 and two leather sofas. An inglenook fireplace with it’s wood-effect stove keeps the room warm and welcoming even on the coldest of winter nights. The open plan galley kitchen has lovely views of Lossiemouth and the harbour, especially when the Esplanade is lit up at night. In addition to this there is the lounge or snug, with two more leather sofas, freeview TV, DVD and stereo and a second inglenook fireplace, this time with a gas ‘coal effect’ stove.
Upstairs there is a good sized bathroom and two bedrooms: the first with a king size double bed, the other a twin. This room has space for a camp bed if needed. Each room has a large window with window seat cushions – the perfect place to enjoy a glass of wine whilst savouring the river and beachfront views?
Outside there is a gravel hardstanding providing off-street parking for 2 cars, and a small patio garden. Garden furniture and a barbeque are provided.
Lossiemouth calls itself the jewel of Moray. It is a pretty town on the Moray Firth at the mouth of the River Lossie, which enjoys a surprisingly dry and sunny micro-climate, being sheltered from the elements by high mountains to the north, south and west.
There are a number of nice walks from the cottage, along the beach of course, but also along the river and through the woods. Ospreys are frequently seen fishing near the mouth of the Lossie. Or perhaps a walk along the Esplanade to the harbour and marina, maybe stopping at one of the pubs or the Harbour tearooms for refreshments. A walk along the Esplanade probably wouldn’t be complete without a locally made ice cream! At the marina, why not book a boat trip to have a chance of a close encounter with some of the Moray Firth’s resident bottlenosed dolphins and other wildlife?
For evening entertainment, there is live music at The Steamboat Inn on a Friday night or checkout what’s on at The Warehouse Theatre. If you have children with you, take them to explore the ruins of nearby Duffus castle, or on a wet day there’s plenty to keep them entertained at The Moray Leisure Centre in Elgin or at the Playbarn at Llanbryde.
For the practical side of things, Lossiemouth has a small supermarket, a greengrocers, a couple of butchers and a bakery. Otherwise there are 24 hour Tesco’s and Asda’s just 6 miles away in Elgin. However, if you want a total break, you can eat out at a number of fine restaurants or pick up a takeaway!
Around half the distilleries in Scotland are found in Speyside, just on our doorstep. 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. There is even a Malt Whisky Trail, to ensure you don’t get lost

"Seatown Cottage - best place to stay in this area" by Conny, Germany on July 5th 2014
It was the 3rd time in this area, but the first time in Seatown Cottage and we hope not the last. It is a cottage full of character and so well equipped. Everything you need you'll find. We've been 6 friends - so we booked both Cottages ( Seatwon 5 & 6 ) for one week. Not only Scotland is great - the Cottages too. Wendy, thanks for having us. Conny & friends
"Another fantastic trip to Lossiemouth!" by Sarah on February 18th 2014
Another brilliant few days in a brilliant cottage. The location is second to none, and the cottage itself is spotlessly clean, & very nicely furnished with quality furniture & applicances. Very happy family break - including kids & dog. Have been before & can't wait to come back in July!
