The Old Police Station, Portsoy
Hooray! We have received our short term let licence and are now taking bookings for this brand new, high quality holiday cottage at 47 Church Street, Portsoy!
We are so excited to have finally completed our “police station project”! Delayed by covid, then problems with the water supply and getting connected to the gas, we stayed at the property ourselves, to ensure we had covered all the finishing touches and everything is up to standard! And we didn’t want to leave! Even the enclosed outside space is now looking stunning, with a rockery garden on the rooves of the 2 sheds, a patio area and a solar fountain!
From the front, it looks tiny! But as you enter from Church street, you will be surprised by how light, bright and spacious this new holiday cottage is! The house is split level, as it backs on to the open space of the Wally Green park and the footpath down the old railway line. Comfortably sleeping 4, the living area is at street level, with a king size double ensuite and a twin bedroom downstairs.
Barely recognisable as Portsoy’s old police station, which had lain empty for many years, it is now a warm and cosy retreat, having been insulated and renovated to the highest standards. It provides an ideal base for your holiday, whether you are wanting to walk along the coastal paths with your four legged friend, discovering the pretty harbour villages and beautiful near deserted beaches nestled between dramatic rocky cliffs, or travel further afield.
Of course, like all our cottages, we have good WiFi and dogs are very welcome. The kitchen is well equipped, whether you want to cook a full Sunday roast or just heat up a takeaway! We provide Egyptian cotton sheets, Dorma duvet covers and thick fluffy towels. We aim to make the cottage a real home from home, so you feel comfortable as soon as you walk in!
In the summer, the light up here is special, days are near endless. Winter skies are dark and starry and – with a bit of luck – you might even see the Northern Lights! We hope you will visit us in Portsoy and discover this often overlooked, largely midge free corner of the North East of Scotland for yourselves!
A warm welcome awaits you!
