Customer Comments

Selected comment(s) from customers who have enjoyed staying at this property:
  1. Daylesford cottage was in an ideal position in Portsoy - just a short walk took you to the cliff top path and stunning views. Very good pub at harbour with very good food. Cottage was perfect. Sept 2011.
  2. An excellent base for the Moray Firth region. We have family in Portsoy so the attraction for us is obvious but it is a lovely cottage and ample advice is provided about how to make the most of the area. July 2011.
  3. Owners extremely helpful and accommodating. Excellent choice for a holiday. Oct 2010.
  4. Location for needs good. Overall the property was clean, light and airy with a friendly welcome. July 2010.
  5. Great location, plenty of space, large enclosed private garden to rear, secure off street car parking. July 2010.
  6. Lovely and clean. Nicely decorated. Good facilities. Great to have large secure enclosed back garden for children. May 2010.
  7. Very well presented and didn’t feel like a holiday home, very warm welcome also. April 2010.
  8. The property is very welcoming for a family with a great ’sun trap’ garden in the rear. It makes a great base for touring Speyside. Aug 2009.
  9. Close to amenities of the village. Well presented cottage. Sept 2009.
  10. We had a lovely relaxing holiday. Daylesford cottage was very comfortable and lived up to the high expectations that we had for it from the pics on the web-site. First time to Portsoy and the Moray coast and we thoroughly enjoyed it - lots of great beaches, fabulous cliff top walks / see views and picture-postcard perfect villages all along this unspoiled coastline. Portsoy proved to be a great base too with a relaxed and welcoming atmosphere, not to mention what we thought was the best ice cream shop we’ve ever visited!! We’ll definitely be back!!!! May 2008.
  11. Excellent location, plenty to do (even when it rains). Fantastic garden, our three children loved it. July 2008.
  12. We spent 3 wonderful weeks in the Daylesford cottage. Its location in Portsoy is just perfect, quiet, nice, very convenient, near all necessary shops by foot. Portsoy is one of the nicest ports on the Moray coast. It’s a lovely place to stay and from there visiting the whole Scotland. We will definitely come again. Aug 2008.
  13. I found the owner very helpful at every stage of the holiday. We changed times, etc, which were taken in the owner’s stride. The cottage was excellent and we could find nothing to complain about. Dec 2007.
  14. The house was fantastic, the housekeeper wonderful and upon our arrival we were left a basket of goodies including amongst other things, wine, fresh bread, marmalade, fresh duck eggs - it was a lovely surprise! The house was immaculate and the furnishings just right. The weather was lovely even though it was October and on the beach we were amazed to see seals resting. Overall, we had a fantastic time. Oct 2007.
