Driftwood Cottage is our latest venture and we welcomed our first guests at the end of March 2019. I am pleased to say that they liked it as much as we do – tho’ I was loath to move out at the end of our ‘test’ stay! Driftwood must be one of the prettiest cottages in Portsoy. It is often photographed, with it’s seaside theme and location all working in it’s favour! I will be uploading professional internal photos as soon as possible, but hope these work in progress ones will give you a feel of the place, and what we are trying to achieve! For me, apart from the location, the garden is one of the biggest attractions! There are not one, not two, but 3 terraces, as you climb the hill behind the cottage, with the view improving from each one! There is a barbeque area, plenty of seating, even a fish pond, and at the top, a ‘sitooterie’ (a summer house!), where you can sit out, enjoy your G&T (or cup of tea!) and look out over the higgledy piggledy roof tops of the historic conservation area and beyond that, out to sea. The cottage has a king size double bedroom, shower room, lounge and kitchen, all on the ground floor, with a twin room and children’s play area up some fairly narrow and steep stairs, so is suitable either for couples of those with young families. Of course, like all our cottages, we have good WiFi and your four legged friends are very welcome. We hope you will visit Driftwood, our latest cottage, and discover this often overlooked corner of the North East of Scotland for yourselves!
