Pretty, traditional fisherman’s cottage for 6 situated just a few steps from the lovely beach of Portnockie.

Cowrie Cottage is a pretty, traditional stone fisherman’s cottage situated just a few steps from beaches of Portknockie. The cottage takes its name from the cowrie shell, which is avidly searched for and can be found on the nearby shoreline. Cowries have been valued for centuries in many parts of the world. In China and Africa they were used as currency (the Chinese character for money is a cowrie shaped shell) and these marine gastropods are still sought by collectors today. There is a collection of these tiny, ribbed shells left in the cottage and visitors are welcome to add to the collection (or take their finds home as a unique memento!). The caring owners have upgraded and refurbished this lovely cottage over the years and it now provides a high standard of accommodation, whilst retaining many attractive original features, including stripped pine doors, super fast broadband and a Sauna. With sleeping accommodation for 6 people, together with two lounges and a separate dining room, it offers an ideal holiday for a larger family or combined holiday.

    The cottage was very nice. However there were dog hair which we had to clean out. A bit on the expensive side probably because of the season. The freezer was iced up and difficult to close. The internet was really very good and super fast. Kept the teenagers happy! There are only very basic amenities in the village, one Spar (expensive) and a chippy. But in the next village there's a Tesco. Overall, a very nice place and I'd like to come again if a bit cheaper.
