Comfortable well equipped accommodation
The cottage is extremely well equipped and tastefully decorated. It is warm and welcoming - with an extremely generous welcome pack - situated in a central location in the village, handy for the pub, chip shop, and shop/PO. I stayed for a week with my sons and our elderly springer spaniel. We would definitely come back to Slaters as it is one of the best self catering cottages we have stayed in, in this area.

A fabulous cottage and we felt at home.
We stayed at Slaters Cottage for the last week in September and was maid to feel really welcome.We were met by Mark the owner who showed us around and had even organised a welcome pack for us which we thought was a nice touch.The cottage was superb with everything you need.Very cosy and warm every detail had been covered.We would certainly recommend this property to anyone who likes their home comforts.

Exquisite Coastal Retreat
Slater's is a beautiful and immaculately presented cottage that I am delighted to recommend to anyone. The cottage itself is beautifully decorated. The bedrooms are all great sizes and the beds are extremely comfy! The owner, goes above and beyond to make the experience great, from the generous welcome pack on arrival to providing information on local attractions.

A lovely house and location for me and my 2 grown up daughters. Beautifully presented and spacious - the house was perfect for the 3 of us and would easily cope with more people. The wood burning stove was a delight and the kitchen was easy to use (great coffee machine!). Mark was fantastic - lovely, unexpected welcome pack of breakfast items and goodies on arrival and he even re-confirmed our boat trip as there was patchy mobile signal in the village. A charming, friendly owner. The location is outstanding .... beautiful beach walks, and the boat trip on Gemini Explorer from nearby Buckie is highly recommended. The pod of dolphins we saw was beautiful :)

An extremely nice place to relax after a long day exploring.
The house is beautifully finished , spacious and situated a minutes walk from the coast. The children loved the choice of bedrooms and the layout of the cottage. We had everything we required for the week, including the owner's help when required. Very friendly and approachable. The coastline is stunning and Portknockie is a good base for access to other beautiful places, Cullen,situated a mile up the coast (it's better to walk along the coast from Portknockie than drive),and Lossiemouth,which had one of the nicest beaches I have visited. It is quiet in Portknockie,but there is plenty to see and do. Everyone is very friendly, welcoming and helpful. The local chip shop is as good as it gets. This was our first trip to Scotland,but won't be our last. Overall,Slaters cottage and the entire holiday exceeded our expectations. We shall definitely be returning and the kids loved it.
