“Cosy cottage in great location”
Reviewed 12 April 2016 for a stay in April 2016

The cottage is very cosy and nicely appointed. The owner who is adjoined to the cottage is helpful and wants to ensure that guests enjoy the rental. As a friend was joining me for the second week the owner kindly cleaned the cottage and refreshed the flowers.

We very much appreciate you taking the time to write a review of Tern Cottage.

We're aware that there was a minor leak from the fresh water inlet pipe in the shower room over the Easter weekend while you were staying with us. Thank you for letting us know about it so quickly and for your patience and good humour. We're pleased that our plumber was able to rectify the situation and we hope it didn't impact too much on your time at Tern.

We're sorry if you felt the kitchen was too compact for your needs. As you'll know, it is listed as a 'kitchenette' in our property description, which perhaps wasn't ideally suited to your two-week stay. Yes, it is indeed small - but we believe that great things can come in small packages! It's elegant, extremely well equipped and ideal for uncomplicated cooking. We've tried to think of everything you could possibly need for a short break. Additional kitchen equipment, including extra electrical tools, are all available on request.

Once again, thank you for your comments. We genuinely take the comfort of our guests very seriously and we appreciate all feedback.
Best wishes Katherine & Lizzie.

“Charming cottage for a fantastic relaxing break”
Reviewed 5 November 2015 for a stay in October 2015

This a beautiful cottage that does not disappoint! Idyllic location that is handy to the local shop, pub and bakery. Decor fresh; lovely and clean. Immediately felt at home due to all the thoughtful touches. We stayed for 5 days and loved every minute of it. There is much to do and see in Findhorn and the surrounding area. We enjoyed walking on the beach, Brodie Castle and Culloden visitor's centre. Would also recommend a visit to Lossiemouth's Harbour Cafe for delicious cullen skink. Lizzie was wonderful. Can't recommend Tern cottage highly enough.

“Delightful cottage in a beautiful place”
Reviewed 6 August 2015 for a stay in June 2015

We came here for a blissful few days near (a sadly rainy) midsummer. The cottage is wonderfully tranquil, and close to everything to everything Findhorn has to offer. The welcome package was most thoughtful and much appreciated!
The cottage is very beautifully furnished, and with the rain blowing the cosy fireplace and an ample supply of wood were wonderful indeed! Upstairs was very comfortable, though watch your head if you are tall. The cottage felt very private and secluded, and was a very peaceful place to retreat to. We hope to return!

Thank you so much for taking the time to eave such a lovely review.
We are so pleased you enjoyed your time at Tern Cottage despite the lack of sunshine that week!
Findhorn enjoys it's own micro-climate so often the weather is a lot better here than in surrounding areas. However when it is wet it generally doesn't stay for long and the cottage is warm, cosy & inviting.
We look forward to welcoming you back in the future!
Best wishes

“Adorable Cottage with beautiful decor and garden, perfect for a relaxing break.”
Reviewed 12 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Beautiful cottage, close to all local amenities including the fantastic beach. The owner lives next door and is friendly and welcoming with very helpful local knowledge. The cottages decor is so tasteful with calming colours, the garden is tranquil and pretty. The welcome pack of freshly baked bread, butter and jam, milk and eggs was a touching find. The cottage is a few steps away from the bakehouse cafe which sells lovely food and fantastic cakes and coffee, also sells freshly made bread before opening time from the back door. We had a lovely relaxing holiday with daily strolls along the beach. Was nice to get back to the cottage in the evening to light the log fire and relax with a great book from the great range of books in the cottage.
