Perched on a narrow ledge in the unique preservation village of Crovie at the base of the Gamrie Bay cliffs

Crovie Cottage is situated in the heart of the unique fishing village of Crovie. Perched on a narrow ledge at the base of the Gamrie Bay cliffs, this historic preservation village is the epitome of unspoilt seaside locations. The only village in Britain where it is impossible to use a car (visitors park at the far end of the village and walk the few yards along the sea front). It offers a unique and utterly charming seaside holiday experience. Crovie Cottage has been completely gutted, renovated and refurbished throughout. This delightful fishing cottage now provides a very high standard of accommodation just yards from the sea. The main living area is open plan. The cottage door opens onto the lounge area, with original flagstone flooring and a large welcoming wood burning stove at the far end. Divided by a low wall, the kitchen has been beautifully built, with Belfast sink, integrated units and in the adjoining alcove a solid wood dining table with wooden bench pews.The steep cottage stairs lead up to two pretty bedrooms, accommodating up to 5 people. There is a superb modern wet room on the ground floor.

Ground Floor: The property has electric radiators and comprises:
Open plan lounge/ dining/kitchen
Lounge Area: With wood burning stove, satellite Freeview TV, DVD, Wi-fi, radio/CD
Kitchen/Dining Area: With electric oven and hob, fridge with ice box, wine cooler, fridge and washing machine. A delightful cottage kitchen with Belfast sink, flag stone tiles and separated from lounge by a half wall. Dining area with wooden pews
Wet Room: With shower, WC and wash basin

First Floor: Bedroom 1: With double bed
Bedroom 2: With two single beds plus spare bed (for +1)

All electricity, bed linen and towels included.Bench. No car access as cottages built before cars and straddle the shoreline just yards from the sea. Limited on street parking available at one end of the village approx 100 yards walk to cottage along the shoreline. Otherwise, 300 yards car park at the top of the hill and walk down to village via a purpose made small path. NB: The sea is immediately below the wall outside the property.

    A tranquil and remote cottage right on the sea front. The cottage is quaint and has been modernised to a good standard. Beds were comfortable and clean. The kitchen well equiped with good quality items. The lounge is a good size for a family with a flag stone floor. We enjoyed ourselves immensely walking our dog every day to Gardenstown. Pebble painting and rock pooling locally and finding remote beaches to stop for flasks of coffee. My only negative was the cottage was really cold when we arrived after 12 hours in the car travelling and unfortunately the shower room had not been cleaned thoroughly. The vacuum did not work either. Having the dog I wanted to keep the light coloured rug as clean as possible. I'm sure this was an over sight and because we arrived so tired and cold some pre warm would have been welcome. All in all a beautiful cottage, just what we needed and lovely locals.

    Response on behalf of the owner; Thank you for your comments and so happy you enjoyed our cottage. The vacuum cleaner has now been replaced as has the rug. Apologies for it feeling cold after such a long journey, that must have felt miserable. To counteract that we always leave the woodburner set to light, in our experience this heats the cottage very quickly. In addition there are 3 mobile electric heaters. Thanks again.

    Cottage lovely but double bed very poor re comfort, mattress needs replacing and previous reviews have also mentioned this. Freezer capacity is negligible, other Crovie property we have rented have been better equipped.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the owner; Thank you for your feedback and so pleased you have enjoyed our cottage. Thank you also for pointing out about the mattress which has now been replaced as has the hoover and rug.

    Had a lovely week at Crovie, the views are amazing. If your not able to get car down at the sea be prepared for very step stair hike back to car following morning! Mattress in main room not very comfortable. Stairs up to bedroom area extremely steep an would be very concerned for young kids falling down during the night.
