Welcome Cottages

Lakeside, seaside, countryside, hillside...wherever you can picture your perfect cottage, you'll find it with Welcome Cottages!


This single-storey property is in a peaceful location, yet just an hour’s drive from Aberdeen.

Excellent views

These four fabulous houses have been sympathetically converted from old farm buildings and stables to provide excellent accommodation for a family holiday in peaceful surroundings. Each house has its own private garden and has been cleverly designed to ensure privacy. The very spacious accommodation is warm and very comfortable (with air source heating and woodburners) and the ample living areas provide plenty of space to relax or enjoy family gatherings. The Stables is a lovely spacious property with high ceilings and a woodburner, while The Barn and The Byre are great family houses with lovely views and plenty of room. The Coach House features a super master bedroom with en-suite bathroom and rolltop bath. The properties are next to Tolquhon Gallery and Tolquhon Castle - known as one of the most pictureque castles in Grampian. This is ’castle country’ and there are many to explore in the area. There are many golf courses at hand, while Pitmedden Gardens and Haddo House are close by. Within easy reach of Balmedie Beach, Cruden Bay and Forvie Sands. Aberdeen is just half an hour’s drive. Shops, pubs and restaurants 3 miles.

All on ground floor: Living/dining room/kitchen with double sofa bed, French doors, beams and laminate floor. 1 double bedroom. Shower room with toilet.

Underfloor central heating by air source heat pump included. Freeview TV. Washer/dryer. Lawned garden with patio, sitting-out area and furniture. Parking (2 cars).

All properties: Woodburner in living room (initial fuel included). Electricity, bed linen and towels included. Travel cot and high chair (on request). DVD. CD. Electric cooker. Microwave. Dishwasher. Fridge/freezer. No smoking.

    Cannot fault the cottage. It was warm, cosy, comfortable and welcoming. The cottage wanted for nothing. The owners were welcoming, friendly and helpful. We will be returning to the Coach House with family in October and to the Stables again next year. The cottage is in a very central location for shopping, walking and eating out. After staying in the Coach House last December and the Stables at the end of April I can say both cottages had the wow factor. Looking forward to our next visit.

    We have rented this cottage three times now and on each occasion have been fully satisfied. The service we receive is first class. The location is good and suits us well being fairly near to family whom we visit. We have no hesitation in recommending this accommodation.

    An excellent cottage in a wonderful location. A few more cups and plates would be useful as we kept running out of clean ones.

    Lovely cottage in a great setting. Used the cottage as a base to tour the area during the day then as a retreat at night. Would definitely stay again.

    We enjoyed our stay. The cottage was very spacious and well equipped and situated close to a number of castles and gardens. We did not find the single tract road a problem. It was a great held to have WiFi.

    The wow factor shouldn't detract from the fact that it is also extremely practical and easy to look after. Perfect for 2 people who want to be away from crowds and are happy to drive up a single track road.
