“Excellent house. Surroundings should improve.”

The house itself is excellent. Nicely furnished with a very nice kitchen/living room and two big bedrooms we felt totally home during our two week stay. It's about 1 minute away from the beach that you can see from the house. Nichola has done everything to make it a very nice and friendly spot to stay even for a longer time.

The house is not located directly in Banff. To Banff or Whitehills in the other direction it takes about 25 min to walk or five minutes to drive.

You should consider that you look at a caravan park at the beach on your left side when looking out of the main windows and that the entire park where this house stands is not fully developed so far. The house next to ours was under construction and there have ben workers setting it up and there seem to come a few more to be build.

However we liked it very much and I definitely would recommend it if you plan a stay in this area.

TOTALLY RECOMMEND THIS LOVELY HOLIDAY HOME
We spent a week in July and all had a brilliant holiday. The house is really lovely, beautifully furnished, spacious, clean, well-equipped with all mod-cons. The added extras like bikes, Wii, dvds, buckets & spades etc ....all handy if you have kids to amuse.....make for a lovely personal touch from Nichola and her family. She even left milk for us in the fridge – a perfect gift on arrival as you can get the kettle on as soon as you walk in the door! You get a lovely view at the front looking onto a clean and sandy beach....perfect for an evening stroll before bedtime. We even bought wet-suits and body-boards for the kids in the famous Banff Spotty Bag Shop and they had a great time swimming in the North Sea brrrrrrr!!! Banff and nearby Fraserburgh are hot-spots for surfers and kite-surfers so this house is a perfect base for catching the waves up in the north-east. There is a swing park between the house and the beach ...again perfect for the kids. The caravan park is far from obtrusive. It’s fairly small with no entertainment suite so no music events and the folk we met in the play park were very friendly. You can walk/bike quite easily to Whitehills, the next village round the coast, where there is another great play park, a great chippy and a great fish shop (lovely fresh fish straight from the local fishing boats). The surrounding area is very picturesque with plenty places do visit. In particular, the kids enjoyed the Macduff Aquarium and the Lighthouse Museum in Fraserburgh (another big, sandy beach here too). There are lovely wee fishing villages along the coast .... if you dare drive down the vertical brae to reach them (you don’t want your brakes failing!!) Don’t let the story about the circus and the caravan park mislead you – I suppose it’s whatever floats your boat but we have no qualms recommending The Boathouse. We hope to return for sure. Thanks to Nichola and her family – you have got yourselves a perfect spot and we are sure that you will get a lot of folk going back for more of your fine Scottish hospitality!

Just back from the boathouse and the stay was fantastic. This is a 5 star accommodation without a doubt. Opening your front patio door every morning to the beautiful sight of the links caravan site plus the moray coast just can't be beaten. The facilities are first class, Utility room and furnishings are excellent and can't be faulted. Everything you would want and more. booked for the golf week at duff-house royal golf course ( which is a first class course well worth a visit and the food and bar-staff are great too )Internet Tv, Bikes for the kids, Sonos system, Wii in the single room, play park right outside the door, beach is superb and the cleanest we have ever been on, kitchen and full layout of property excellent. My wife has almost got OCD and cleans like hell when ever we go anywhere but not here, Straight in and no cleaning, Everything first class.Really can't recommend this place enough and would disagree with any bad report on this property, Even so that we have booked it for the 2015 golf week and every year after that ( not quick enough for the 2014 golf week ) THANKS TO MR AND MRS BUCHAN YOUR PLACE IS WELL RECOMMENDED AND FULL OF QUALITY.
