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.
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.
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!
We are non-smokers, do not allow pets or loud music and please, no hot food in the bedroom.
A Nespresso Machine with complimentary capsules (2 per person, per day) is provided. Further capsules are available on demand at a price of 50p each.
There is also a kettle with tea bags, and a small jug of fresh milk will be provided.
A Continental Breakfast is available upon request when making your booking and is included in the price. On Christmas Day and New Year's Day, a complimentary Full Scottish Breakfast is served.
Bed linen is from The White Company.
