Eagles Gate Lodge is located just 2 miles away from the busy seaside town of Banff with its beautiful beach and good selection of shops and restaurants. This picture-postcard cottage was refurbished in late 2020 without losing its original character; with a new kitchen, bathroom, carpets and paintwork throughout. Superbly set in enclosed front and back gardens, its enjoys the sun for most of the day so you can sit outside to enjoy breakfast, lunch or dinner. The back garden looks out on the woodland and fields of Deerpark Farm, where it is common to see the deer strolling by in the early morning, and the rose-filled front garden is perfect for relaxing on a sunny afternoon with plenty of space for the kids to run around. The property sleeps up to six in three bedrooms, all with garden views. It has a bright, airy kitchen, dining room and living room with wood burner, and is ideal for dog owners with some amazing walks nearby.

Not only does Eagles Gate Lodge enjoy its own sunny microclimate, it is also set within the stunning grounds of the former Duff House estate, once owned by the Duke of Fife. Indeed, this surprisingly spacious Grade A listed cottage was once one of the lodge houses for the estate and enjoys an enviable location in the countryside, yet only a mile from Duff House itself and all the amenities of Banff and its quiet, sandy beaches.

The towns of Banff and Macduff, only a couple of miles away, sit on either side of Banff Bay where you can regularly see dolphins and even the occasional Orca whale during the summer months. Banff has a marina and Macduff a fishing harbour, and both towns have a number of pubs and excellent places to eat offering a variety of cuisines including vegan and seafood. Additionally, the nearby Deveron is a salmon river where day tickets can be purchased. It is a great base to explore the wider Aberdeenshire area, from the numerous castles and historic monuments, to fantastic outdoor activities along the beautiful noth-east coastline. Explore the Whisky Trail further inland which wends its way through dramatic scenery, or visit the city of Aberdeen, approximately 1 hour away, for retail therapy, cinemas and theatre. Beach 2 miles. Shop, pub and restaurant 2 miles.

Reviews

“A fabulous, cosy, comfortable and fully equipped cottage in an idyllic location. The cottage had everything we could ever need in a holiday cottage and more. We were welcomed to the cottage with a lovely message from the owner, a perfectly clean cottage, a welcome hamper, fresh flowers and lovely treats for our dogs. The location of the cottage was so peaceful and teeming with wildlife, which we loved. We loved exploring the local area and were lucky to swim in the sea when a pod of dolphins passed by, crossed paths with an otter at the Bridge of Alvah and spotted ospreys at Spey Bay. It was a wonderful cottage in a beautiful part of Scotland making a fabulous holiday. Thank you:)”

“This is a lovely, comfortable lodge set in deciduous woodland and was a perfect location for us. The owner's attention to detail is first class. As we have a dog, the secure fence around the property was essential. We had glorious weather throughout our stay, so spent some time out in the garden each day, and it was so relaxing for all of us with the constant background of birdsong. The property is only 2 miles from Banff, so handy if you need anything. The nearby Fife Lodge Hotel serves delicious food and is petfriendly, allowing you to bring your dog with you and sit in the bar area. Plenty of walks including the nearby Duff Estate and of course many sandy beaches. The RSPB Troup Head Reserve is worth a visit with hundreds of gannets to watch from the clifftops. The coastal northeast road is worth a trip, though very few cafes open in the small villages, so picnic advisable. Thoroughly enjoyed our holiday with plenty of happy memories.”

“This cottage was a very welcome escape from the 'home' office and screens. It is in a beautiful location and has everything you need for space, peace and quiet whether watching the deer, listening to the dawn chorus, looking at the stars on a clear night or just curled up in front of the fire with a good book. I hope you enjoy it as much as we did.”
