This well-furnished, terraced property is situated down a quiet street in the popular coastal town of Banff, just a short walk from the harbour and vibrant marina. There is a good variety of shops, pubs and eating places as well as many historic buildings, which ensures there is plenty to do in the immediate vicinity. The bright and airy interior has been thoughtfully furnished to provide a good standard of comfort with spacious bedrooms and a cosy living room, which also includes a dining table comfortably seating four. This leads into a well-equipped kitchen, with a full range of implements including a slow cooker and some basic store ingredients to help create the family meals which could be enjoyed al fresco in the enclosed rear garden, which is also ideal for sitting out on sunny afternoons.

Nearby is Duff House, a magnificent example of baroque architecture, and Scotland’s premier country house gallery, housing a rich collection of paintings and other works of art. There are lovely walks along the River Deveron, and the well-respected Duff House Royal Golf Course is a challenge for any golfer. Banff itself enjoys spectacular sea views, magnificent sunsets, including the possibility of spotting the Northern Lights between October and March, clean air and sea angling. There is plenty to occupy the visitor in the surrounding area, from golden sandy beaches stretching from Banff to Nairn, to the numerous castles and historic monuments which abound. There are cycle routes and pony trekking, and make sure you explore the Whisky Trail further inland, which wends its way through dramatic scenery. The lively city of Aberdeen, around 1 hour away, is great for retail therapy, cinemas and theatre. Beach ¾ mile. Shop ¼ mile, pub 175 yards and restaurant ½ mile.

One of the bedrooms is for alternative sleeps only.

“Excellent facilities and well catered for dogs.”

“My friend, dog and I had a lovely holiday here. House is perfect. Not too precious that you worry about the dog. The library of books and dvds were so good I wanted to stay for 3 months! Banff and surrounding area just beautiful. Enclosed large garden for dog was perfect though we were out on perfect walks most of the time. My 1 point off comfort section was personal all beds very hard. Everything else was brilliantly. Definitely recommend *****”

“I went with my 3 dogs. Re equipment every kitchen utensil you could need and more. Bed extremely comfortable (I used double bedroom at the back of the house). Very clean. One beach 5 minutes walk down the hill and is very clean which also has the River Deveron flowing into it (for dogs to drink fresh water instead of sea water). The other larger beach was a 15 minute walk (or 5 minute drive) around the corner in the opposite direction and again very clean. Plenty of cafes for food. Tesco and a Coop for stocking up on food supplies if necessary. Owner at the end of the phone if you encounter any problems. Parking can be a very slight challenge as you are across from the small cottage hospital. If you go away for the day the parking space in the street outside the house can be used by someone else but you can usually find another space a few doors down or up so no real issue here but just something to be aware of. Although cottage can sleep 6 people (two double bedrooms and one with 2 singles) there is only one toilet with a shower (a very good shower and hot) so might not suit 3 separate couples but for a family with children definitely suitable. I would recommend visiting either Cullen beach (11 miles further up the road) as they have a good ice cream shop and old fashioned sweetie shop or Portsoy they have an excellent ice cream shop with around 20 flavours to choose from. I would certainly recommend this accommodation and will certainly be back myself.”

“when we arrived at Thain house it was above our expectations evrything you would have in your own house was there for you to use. The house was very clean and there was cds,wi games,jigsaws,dvds and plenty other games. The owner was very helpful emailing a list of things to see and do.I would highly recommend Thain house for a holiday or short break even the dog was catered for.”

“We had a lovely week at Thain house. Its really handy for town and was very well equipped.”

“Wow! What an absolute gem! We had a great time in Banff staying in Thain House. The property was stocked with everything we needed and more a great selection of DVDs for evening entertainment, books, games, loads of cleaning products and toiletries just in case we needed them, spare towels & bedding. The photos don't do it justice. There was plenty of room inside and out, with a lovely enclosed garden with a table and chairs provided and washing line. It was very clean and welcoming. The area is outstanding! There are so many beaches nearby to explore, which were all dog friendly. We saw seals and dolphins during our stay. Within a few minutes walk of the property there is a beach, harbour, shops, pubs etc. Will definitely be returning!”
