Stonehaven, Aberdeenshire, Scotland
West Gallaton Farmhouse is a beautiful cottage set in the South Aberdeenshire countryside with stunning views over open rural landscape all the way to the sea. Just over 2 miles from Stonehaven, right on the National Cycle Network, our location offers the best of both worlds; a peaceful, rural location, with easy access to the busy town of Stonehaven. We offer family run, self-catered holiday lets throughout the year. Our changeover day is a Friday and bookings are usually made by the week. However, short breaks may be considered. The house comfortably accommodates up to 5 adults plus a baby. Outside, the farmhouse has a spacious, sunny, fully enclosed terrace with garden furniture. There is plenty of parking space and a shed for storing bikes. Inside, there is a large, fully equipped dining kitchen, lounge with wood-burning stove, b... Read more

Interaction with guests
Whilst we live next door, we prefer to leave our guests to enjoy the peace and quiet the area offers. So unless we hear otherwise, we assume that all is well. We are often, but not always, around to welcome guests. If we are not around, there is a keysafe so that people can let themselves in. Full information on how to get there, and how to access the house will be emailed prior to arrival.

I’m reluctant to tell you all how great this place is as I’m now a regular visitor having stayed approximately five times now. Sheila is a great host and the farmhouse is the perfect retreat for me when I stay for anything longer than two...More

Getting around
As we are a rural property, a car is really necessary. However, we do have guests who choose to come without one and are happy to walk or cycle everywhere. We are right on National Cycle Route 1, and there is loads of great cycling, both on and off road. There is no public transport in the immediate area, but it is a 5 minute taxi ride into town. Stonehaven has a railway station on the Aberdeen to Dundee/Edinburgh line. Aberdeen airport is a 45 minute drive away.
Car advised
How to get there
Airport: Aberdeen: 39.0 km
Railway: Stonehaven: 3.0 km
Ferry: Aberdeen: 30.0 km
Leave the A90 just south of Stonehaven, at the junction with the A92.  After a short stretch of dual carriageway, and passing the left turn to Stonehaven, the road narrows to single-carriageway and there is a turning to the right (signposted Barras), with a black and white plastic horse on the left of the road.  Take that right turn, and then immediately turn left - following signs for Halymyres riding stables.  West Gallaton is approx. 1.2 miles along this road, on the left.  We live in the converted steading and the farmhouse is the grey house next door.  Please park in the space between the two buildings.

NB If you use satnav it will take you to the correct road, but to a house which is around half a mile too far south.
