This attractive, detached 19th-century cottage has been restored by the current owners of the country estate. The main living accommodation is on the ground floor, with high ceilings, deep-silled windows and wonderful views across to the sea, all the rooms are bright and welcoming. The fully fitted kitchen leads through to the pretty living room. There is an attractively presented dining room adjoining, and a small shower room off the main hall. An original staircase leads up to three generously proportioned bedrooms on the first floor, all enjoying views across to the sea or open countryside.

The Gate Lodge is situated at the start of the ¾ mile private lane that leads up to the main country house. This beautiful tree lined approach lane is bounded by mature trees with a pretty burn and waterfalls meandering alongside. With an abundance of wild flowers, the occasional otter and numerous local deer, it is a lovely walk direct from the cottage. The owners run a small café and local craft business from the main house and visitors are welcome to wander in the 24 acres of grounds and enjoy the surrounding countryside. The immediate area is noted as an area of outstanding archaeological interest. Brochs, cairns and standing stones are all found in the locality.

There are numerous places of interest and sporting activities in the area. The nearby village of Lybster has an interesting past, built at the height of the 19th-century herring boom. With its pretty harbour and beach it is well worth a visit. This coast has some of the most outstanding beaches to be found anywhere. Fishing, golf, horse riding, kayaking, sailing, mountain biking and wildlife watching are all enjoyed locally, and puffins, seals, dolphins and whales are seen around these coastal waters. Beach 2 miles. Shop, pub and restaurant 3 miles.

Guest Comments

"The lodge has plenty of character, is spacious and is a great location for exploring the north-east of Scotland. The owners are very friendly and helpful. The complimentary coffee and cake was much appreciated, as was the wealth of advice on things to do and places to visit. As is the case with many holiday lets, I felt that we paid over the odds for our week's stay. However I do appreciate that this reflects the interaction of supply and demand. And in the end we had a comfortable and interesting stay in a part of Scotland which was pretty much new to us."

"The Gate Lodge was ideal plenty of space for the dogs to run around, clean, comfortable - bathroom could have done with being bigger but we managed.Found some good places to go and see, food at the big house was good as were the grounds & wall-garden.It is a pity some of the local towns seem so run down but if you are into nature there are plenty of walks & beaches nearby."
