Old Salthouse

This well-presented detached cottage is located just a minute’s walk from a sandy beach in the pretty coastal town of Hopeman, on the shores of the Moray Firth. This spacious cottage is ideal for a family or group of friends who want to spend time together exploring this lovely part of Scotland. The ground floor consists of a well-equipped kitchen, a comfortable sitting room and a separate dining room both of which benefit from woodburning stoves, ideal for spending a cosy night in after an active day. A modern family bathroom is also located on the ground floor which features a lovely teardrop shaped freestanding bath. Upstairs, there are two comfortable bedrooms which both offer harbour and sea views; one king-size double with an en-suite shower room and one family room with a king-size double and a single, which also includes a telescope so you can view the distant boats on the horizon. Outside, there is a parking area to the side and a lawned garden to the front and rear where you can enjoy dining alfresco on warmer days whilst enjoying the fresh sea air. Hopeman is a scenic fishing village and includes a number of small shops, a popular tea room and a pub, but the majority of visitors come to enjoy the two sandy beaches and the pretty harbour. Nearby Burghead also benefits from an excellent beach and a good selection of local amenities and is a haven for wildlife lovers with Burghead Bay being the ideal place to spend a day dolphin and whale spotting. Although this area has miles of sandy beaches and loads of wildlife you may wish to venture inland and pick up the famous Malt Whisky Trail with over 50 distilleries within easy reach. The popular coastal villages of Lossiemouth and Findhorn can be easily reached and are well worth a visit making a lovely day out. Elgin, Scotland’s smallest city is just a fifteen minute drive away and is home to many visitor attractions including its famous 13th century cathedral. This coastal cottage is a perfect base for a seaside holiday in a beautiful part of Scotland.
