Travel cot available on request. Highchair. Welcome pack. Sitting-out area with garden furniture and BBQ. 1-acre garden shared with owner. Bike store. Private parking for 2 cars. No smoking. Please note The property has a natural water supply from a borehole. There are 2 steps in the garden.This detached barn conversion adjacent to the owner’s home is located just outside the lovely conservation village of Fordyce 1½ miles from the Moray coast. A magical place the village is a warren of narrow streets and beautiful houses still following a medieval plan and all wrapped around a magnificent centrepiece Fordyce Castle simply sitting on a bend in the village street. The holiday cottage is very comfortable and warm and takes advantage of the panoramic views of both sea and countryside with the arched French doors in the living room leading to a sunny sitting-out area at the front. Fordyce also offers an attractive park opposite the old kirkyard as well as a Victorian garden. The sandy beach at Sandend is a quick drive or a 45-minute walk from the cottage where local fish can be bought and surfers enjoy the waves. Good coastal walks abound through the old fishing villages of Portsoy and Cullen or alternatively travel inland through castle and whisky country. There are plenty of golf courses in the vicinity and the variety of bird and wildlife both onshore and off will please the keen nature lover. Shop pub and restaurant 2½ miles." https://img.chooseacottage.co.uk/Property/808/840/808650.jpg 29653

    had a wonderful holiday break, couldn't fault the cottage everything you could need, plus some extra little touches from the owners like doggy treats, a dog bed, and for the humans tea ,coffee, biscuits, milk--I found this really thoughtful, would come back here again

    Lovely cottage in a great location with wonderful views. It was especially lovely to have it decorated with Christmas decorations for the festive period. Lots of equipment in the cottage along with DVD's , books, board games and information and maps,of the local areas. Fantastic stay.

    This was my third stay and I enjoyed it just as much as on previous visits. The welcome pack gives advice on a wide range of walks and things to do in the area and it is lovely to stay somewhere the my dog is welcomed rather than simply tolerated.

    A great time spent at the Steading and the adjacent beaches the dog thought she had died and gone to dog heaven🐾🐾. I just admit that I lived on a mainly fish diet for the week. I would recommend the following, The Old Kirk and bistro Fordyce, the Royal Oak Cullen, The Station Hotel Portsoy among others. We did see the roe deer in the field in the top corner behind the steading

    Lovely cosy cottage, fabulous views all round. Everything we needed. Welcome pack including treats for our dog. Owners checked everything ok but although they lived next door they were not intrusive. Short drive to lots of beaches, Cullen was our favourite with walk to Portknockie for delicious fish and chips. Pretty little village.

    This is our second year at Brae Steading and it was again an excellent cottage. It was faultless and the owner was most helpful. The welcome pack was really welcome after a long drive and the guidance notes were very helpful. This resulted in a really enjoyable stay in a wonderful location.

    Third year in a row we stayed at tThe Brae, and it only gets better - not by much as it’s always been outstanding. New coffee shop in Portknockie now allows dogs and is worth a visit. The Royal Oak in Cullen also allows dogs and served great food. We have holidayed in the Moray Firth for many years, and this is the best value accommodation we have stayed in. Spotless - like moving into a new house.
