A place to chillax

  • 4 of 5

Seashore House is a lovely cottage with great views of the coastal waters from each bedroom. The cottage was clean and a good location foe walks along the coast. Unfortunately, the wifi network needs improving.

If you are looking for a place to relax and unwind this is the place for you.

Lovely relaxing holiday

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Seashore House at the end of August and had a great time. The house was just what we were looking for, well-equipped with a nice living area and spacious bedrooms for everyone. We were looking for a relaxing week which is exactly what we got. Lots of walks, trips to the pub and a couple of takeaways as a treat! Also, I loved going to sleep and waking up to the sounds of the waves!

Thanks Gwen & Steve ...

  • 5 of 5

At the beginning of August this year my partner and I once again stayed at Seashore House - we were here in September last year - but this time we had my brother, sister her husband and three children with us again, just as in August 2008. Once again the accomodation was faultless and both Gwen and Steve very welcoming. As we have relatives and friends in the village, we tend not to go far but just use the week for 'chilling out' and catching up on gossip etc. We do however manage the odd day out to Aberdeen and also just up the road to Stonehaven. For those who want to get out and about more, there are plenty of leaflets in the villa, courtesy of Gwen and Steve, of places of interest to visit, restaurants for a good meal etc and these are kept up-to-date. Every amenity in the village is no more than five minutes away from the villa and everyone in the village, pubs and shop are friendly and welcoming. Take a seat in the harbour on any day and just gaze out at the north sea and let the serenity of the place wash over you because this is relaxation at its best. Seashore House plays its part too in that it really is a home-from-home and has every modern convenience you could wish for and, if there is anything else that you need, if it is possible, Gwen and Steve will make sure that it's available for you.

We will be back again next year and we have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Seashore House to anyone. Any holiday is what you make of it but staying at Seashore House certainly gets you off to a flying start. Try it, you wont be disappointed either by the villa itself or its location just over the road from the sea and what a view to wake up to ......

Seashore House was absolutely brilliant, the cleanliness, facilities etc. were first class. The en-suite facilities for all rooms were exceptional. What fantastic views of the North Sea, the superb location also made it easy to get about the area be it walking (local) or by car. A must to visit is the beach at St Cyrus (5 miles south) it's stunning. Gwen and Steve made our stay very, very comfortable. Hopefully we'll be back next year.
