We live in a beautiful main door drawing room flat, part of an Arts and Crafts house in Stonehaven. It features a terrace overlooking a mature garden and is located in a very good neighbourhood, 5 mins walk from the sea, 9 mins from Stonehaven station.

The space

Our home consists of a downstairs floor flat, part of a characterful Arts and Crafts house in an old part of Stonehaven, the Parish of Fetteresso, which dates back to the 1200's. Our flat has many original features throughout, and we have given it a fresh and contemporary feel with our modern art collection and painted wooden floors. The rooms in general are very spacious and the house has a lovely feel with its high ceilings and big windows.

Guest access

Though your bedroom is one of the smaller rooms in the house, it is also the cosiest room, newly decorated with Seagrass carpeting, giving it a very contemporary feel . Your private bathroom is just next to your room and you will have exclusive use of it. You will have access to our large drawing room with bay windows, full of original art work and antiques with a flat screen TV and Sky TV.
Your room has a Nespresso Machine with capsules provided (2 per person per day). A kettle and tea with Shortbread and Scottish Tablet is also provided and a Continental breakfast is included in the price.
We have a wonderful front verandah, overlooking a mature garden - a great place to sit when the sun is shining!

Interaction with guests

I will be able to point you in the direction of interesting things to see and do in the area and around Aberdeen. I can also recommend restaurants in the area and modes of transport.
My husband and I are fluent French speakers - he is half French and I went to school in France. We are from Cape Town, South Africa and have been living in Scotland for almost 10 years.
We offer English conversation classes at a rate of £10 per hour should you wish to improve your spoken or written English in a more focussed way.

Other things to note

You will not need a car as we are 9 mins walk from the station and the bus service is very good. Stonehaven is on the main train line to and from London Kings Cross and just 2 and a half hours by train from Edinburgh.
Should you have a car, there is plenty of safe off street parking at no charge. This is a big advantage as parking is hard to find in Stonehaven and very expensive in Aberdeenshire!

Julia is a great host, very friendly and easy to get in touch with. Her place is beautiful with comfy beds and a lovely terrace. Everything was just as in the pictures. Stonehaven definitely is worth a visit, good restaurants, great scenery with Dunnottar castle just a short hike away. Would definitely stay there again. Thank you Julia for a great stay!

We cannot recommend Julia's place in Stonehaven highly enough. We were happy to enjoy a cuppa in the beautiful garden on arrival, and found our room (and bed) to be very comfortable. Breakfast was fabulous, with the best croissants following a great selection of healthy muesli, cereal and fresh fruit. Best of all, was that Julia provided us with local information and guidance in our ongoing adventure through the Highlands.

The room was perfect and Julia an excellent host. The house and room are full of character reflecting the host's artistic eye. Julia recommended SIX°NORTH in the harbour area for dinner, they had great food and a range of Belgium beers along with their own brews, well worth a visit.
