Pennan is one of the prettiest coastal villages in Scotland.It is situated on the Banffshire coast which is a real 'hidden gem' .The whole coastline is dotted with lovely villages in spectacular settings,there are interesting historical towns such as Banff and Portsoy.The birdwatching and wildlife are world famous.Being based in Pennan means you can easily drive to wonderful beaches,visit ancient castles and explore the wonderful history and culture of rural Aberdeenshire.
Pennan is quaint,quiet and peaceful.The 30 or so houses all line the single street and everyone knows each other.When you come out of the front door you are right on the harbourside and next to the pebbled beach.
You can sit outside with a glass of wine and enjoy the fantastic sunsets.When it`s cold outside you can curl up in front of the fire and listen to the waves.
The Habour House is a beautifully presented cottage with every modern convenience you could want for your holiday. We only stayed for 3 nights , but would like to have stayed longer and would love to return. The cottage was spotlessly clean and tidy and the furnishings and interior were high quality and in keeping. The view from the front windows over the harbour are fabulous and for anyone with an interest in the film 'Local Hero ' , as I do , would be thrilled to be here ! As an added bonus, The Pennan Hotel, just a few yards away , has a fantastic menu and is very welcoming. I would recommend The Harbour House to anyone ... it's a real haven and we can't wait to return.
We had a wonderful time at Harbour House with our family. The house is tastefully furnished, clean and very well equipped. The photos online were an accurate reflection of Harbour House. We were warmly welcomed by Claudia, who gave us very helpful information. We were very comfortable in Harbour House, and found it a great base for exploring over the weekend. We enjoyed lots of nice walks along the coastline and visits to interesting coastal villages. The welcome pack was much enjoyed by us all. We hope to return!
The Harbour House truly is luxurious - sensational prime location right next to the gentle bustle of the harbour, and top quality features and fittings in the house itself make this a special place to bring a loved one, friends of family.
Warm welcome from the outset, you will feel very relaxed and at home in Pennan. Lots to see and do in the surrounding area. Lovely entertaining areas in the house are perfect for eating, lounging, reading and playing games. The house has all the added extras you will need to make the most of your stay, making for an effortless trip - beach towels, binoculars, cool bag and picnic materials etc, along with interesting books and films to enjoy indoors.
The bedrooms too are fantastic - two with wonderful views and the children's room is really fun!!
Luxurious japanese bath was great fun also - a real treat.
Whole-heartedly recommend this wonderful place.
Beautiful, comfortable, well-equipped cottage in an unbelievably picturesque fishing village. Terrific location for day trips, including Speyside distilleries. Comfortable beds, well-equipped kitchen, beautiful views of harbor. Claudia was amazingly hospitable and available for advice about where to go and how to plan our time in residence, and even provided a bottle of Scotland's best to welcome us upon arrival.
We all LOVED our stay at the Harbour House! The accommodations were comfortable, the kitchen was pretty well supplied with dishes and basics, and the location was great! I our whirlwind tour of Scotland (covering both coasts), this was out favorite place to stay. Also, wifi was good and dependable with all our myriad of devices--Claudia was right in that there is no cell signal in Pennan, but the wifi worked great. very quaint and beautiful location, but with modern amenities. We would love to go back!
