The Haven 12 Shorehead

Perched right on the harbour, on a quaint, cobbled street in Stonehaven home to the famous New Years Eve Fireballs ceremony, with the sandy beach just paces away, is The Haven at 12 Shorehead. This self-contained ground-floor apartment built around 1730, welcomes couples to a lovely part of Scotland, with plenty to see and do close by and further afield. On entrance is a lovely porch area, where you can catch glimpses of the bustling harbour, then make your way to the sitting room at the front to enjoy more of the views, or tune into the Freesat TV and catch up on some of your favourite shows. This former fisherman's cottage has low ceilings, yet a modern feel inside, just what you need to relax and unwind of an evening, on return from a long walk or day at the beach. You can do some home-cooking in the kitchen and get together around the dining table for a romantic night in. This apartment also has a spacious, super king-size bed and a bathroom offering an electric shower over the bath. To the outside is a lovely sitting area, from which you can watch the busy working harbour as the sail boats glide in and out, and sip a glass of your favourite tipple on a sun-filled afternoon. Right on the doorstep are some delightful seaside amenities including a tea room and variety of restaurants, as well as the Tolbooth Museum, showcasing a number of artefacts associated with the town's heritage. Stonehaven also plays host to one of four outdoor swimming pools left in Scotland, and you can also walk right from the property up to the dramatic ruins of Dunnottar Castle, which are perched upon a rocky headland. Just south of the town is the RSPB Fowlsheugh Reserve, which is packed with breeding seabird in the spring and summer, a birdwatcher's paradise. This is a wonderful holiday destination to bring your loved one for a revitalising break at The Haven.

All ground-floor. 1 x super king-size bed. Bathroom with bath, electric shower over, basin and WC. Kitchen/diner. Sitting room.
