Area of outstanding natural beauty

These two very comfortable semi-detached holiday cottages (26817 and 26818) occupy a stunning elevated position on the headland just outside the beautiful village of Pennan. Both properties boast fantastic sea views; Mill Shore Cottage has a cosy living room which features windows on two sides allowing uninterrupted viewing of Mill Shore below – a secluded shingly beach with sandy shallows beyond, offering a unique perspective on the abundant marine life – seals can be spotted easily in the bay, whilst further out whales and dolphins are often sighted. Pennan Lodge again has marvelous views of Pennan itself and the bay beyond from its contemporary living room. In addition to the amazing marine life, just round the corner and visible from the cottages is Troup Head, a renowned nature reserve featuring the only UK mainland colony of gannets. Boat trips from Macduff can take you right past this unforgettable sight. Next door is Cullykhan Beach, another secluded cove reached by a steep walk down to the shore. Pennan is renowned for its famous phone box as featured in the film ’Local Hero’ but it is a lovely village in its own right, typical of those strung out along this rugged coastline, all waiting to be explored, including Crovie and Gardenstown, reached by steep winding roads to the bottom of the cliffs from which they cling. This is an AONB providing wonderfully scenic areas for walking. Shop and restaurant 4 miles, pub ¼ mile.

Both properties: Elec, bed linen and towels inc. T/cot on request. DVD. Elec cooker. W/machine. Two t/dryers in garage. Enclosed lawned garden, sitting-out area and furniture. Ample parking. Shared cycle store. Welcome pack. No smoking.

All on ground floor: Living room. Dining room/kitchen. 2 bedrooms: 1 double, 1 twin. Bathroom with shower over bath and toilet.

Oil CH inc. Freeview TV. M/wave.

1st comment: Wonderful views, warm and very comfortable. May 2012.

2nd comment: Lovely cosy,clean cottage with the best views we have ever had. The location was amazing. Very easy to find and with good access and parking. The coastline around the area is truly beautiful and well worth a return visit. March 2012.

3rd comment: Great place to stay for couples, fabulous views, quiet and warm holiday house. One minus - double bed a little too small. March 2012.

4th comment: The accommodation was perfect for a romantic break and great location for walking. We had a great walk to Pennan and back and enjoyed a wee dram at the famous pub. March 2012.

5th comment: Excellent for car based visitors, or for those with a masochistic tendency to walk miles up and down hills, cliffs etc. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will try to fit in another visit, despite the 9 hour drive to get there. Oct 2011.

6th comment: We could not fault anything about our holiday. The weather was brilliant it only rained once. Oct 2011.
