A wonderful, stone, detached holiday cottage, situated in the grounds of the owners' home and just five miles from Banff in Aberdeenshire, with two bedrooms accommodating four people.

Buttermere Cottage is set in the grounds of the owners' home and is a great detached holiday home for those exploring Scotland; specifically Aberdeenshire and the Moray coastline. This lovely holiday home has two bedrooms; a king-size double room with an en-suite shower room, a 2' 6" twin room (zip/link) and a separate shower room. There is also a kitchen with a dining area, a sitting room with an electric, flame-effect fire and outside, private gardens to the front and side with furniture. There is also plenty of space for off road parking and with so many wonderful attractions, as well as great walking opportunities nearby, Buttermere Cottage is a great base for friends, families and couples.


Buttermere cottage
Spent new years in this cottage with two friends and our dog. We had the most relaxing enjoyable time possible. Quality time with friends in quality accommodation. The cottage is superbly equipped and very welcoming and comfortable. Our four legged friend can't cope with fireworks etc and this was a perfect retreat for him too, he settled in like it was home from home. Plenty walks around despite the weather and would love to to return in the spring summer to explore more of these. Beautiful coastline and not too far from amenities should you run out. The welcome package was so nice and thoughful and was much appreciated. The owners are so nice and friendly. If you want to get away from it all in lovely surroundings then this cottage fits the bill. Highly recommend it and would definitely return

Simply The Best
Been in UK for 5 months, have stayed in lots of cottages this is the best yet! Attention to detail is superb. Everything was spotless and comfortable, lovely fluffy towles, good quality linen, furnished to perfection. We were very impressed with the quality of the cooking equipment, dinner service, placemats Etc Rachel and Graham made us feel very welcome, even invited us to arrive early. The "welcome pack" included muffins which were just yum! This couple have done everything possable to make the cottage home from home, and more, lots of advice on where to visit, eat and shop. Cottage is in a fantastic area for touring. Go into all the small fishing villages, they are all individual and full of history, loved the 17th century harbour at Portsoy, Pennan was another favourite. The Whisky Trail, castles and general countryside are all within easy reach as is Walkers and Deans shortbread factory shops and Baxters museum and shops. Plenty to do for a week ore two. Thanks again for such a delightful cottage.

great cottage
Very nice cottage but has its pros and cons Cons. Not suitable for disabled ,can get noisy with traffic as its only about 6feet from road ,also a very noisy water pump which is a put off , can't do without it all the time . To many steps to get to second bedroom on lower level if were disabled . Pros. Quality cottage well fitted out and warm ,has all equipment for a kitchen and living room tv,dvd player also .A car is a must being 6 miles from Banff but great coastline for touring and seems to escape lots of rain

Luxury, spotless, well equipped cottage
Spent 2 weeks in Buttermere cottage. The cottage is tastefully decorated, spotlessly clean and the owners, Rachel and Graham, give a very friendly welcome. They were always eager to please and to help with suggestions of places to visit. It is situated in a lovely area and the Moray coast is full of beautiful sandy beaches and small harbours. I will definitely return as there are still so many places to visit.

The Cottage was in a great location for exploring along the coastal towns. Can't fault anything with the Cottage, a super holiday.
