Puffin Cottage Johnshaven Very dog friendly No charge for furry friends!

What could be better after an invigorating walk by the sea (with or without a doggy friend!), than to sample the delicious pub grub at The Anchor, have a pint at the Ship, (both dog friendly) then come back for a coffee on one of the comfortable sofas beside the log fire. Enjoy being cosy in the cottage whilst enjoying the amazing sea view almost on your doorstep. (Any 2 night minimum.)

Puffin Cottage has been receiving tired and weary travelers and holidaymakers for over 14 years now and sending them home refreshed and with a spring in their step. I think we must be on our 8th visitors book by now! All available to browse in the cottage, in addition to many books, brochures and maps to peruse!

Easter 2019�� Another wonderful trip up to Puffin Cottage and Aberdeenshire. Wonderful dog walks, great beaches, kids and dogs absolutely loved it and what fabulous sunshine! A short trip so we will definitely be back again!

April �19. Lindsey and Chris, enjoyed every minute in your cottage. Spotless, warm and cosy and everything you need here. St Cyrus beach is stunning and great for dogs. Lovely friendly people around and always ready for a chat Dog friendly Anchor Inn does lovely food. Charlton Farm cafe great for dogs and large outdoor play area for children. Lots to see in the area and would love to come back to enjoy the peace and quiet of the cottage again. Great stay. Thank you very much.

27th Feb � 7th March�.The cottage is perfect and so very well equipped. We already loved Johnshaven, but after our first visit to Puffin Cottage, we loved it even more! The cottage is just so comfortable and has everything anyone could need. On our first night here we saw Dolphins! Thank you for everything. We will be back ASAP. We love it!

8th -10th Feb Lovely cottage. Great views. Everything we needed in the cottage. Nice little cafe on the corner and great food at The Anchor. Kids had fun collecting shells and looking for crabs when the tide was out. We will most definitely be back.

1st � 8th Feb Freezing outside but cottage lovely and cosy. All 3 dogs settled in at once. Garden perfect for the dogs, even the wee ones. We only drove out of Johnshaven twice during the week, no need to go anywhere else. A relaxing week. Newly opened cafe at the harbour with lots of good cakes and very friendly staff.

2nd � 5th Jan Have had a lovely stay with the family � 3 generations and a dog. Hope we get back again soon. Thanks Lindsey and Chris, you�d thought of everything one could ask for.

29th Dec to 2nd Jan We really enjoyed our stay at Puffin Cottage, but would have to say that Poppy and Maxi (English Mastiff�s), were totally thrilled about the fabulous and safe garden at both the front and back of the cottage. Really peaceful and relaxing. Lovely walks. Definitely planning other trips here.

20th � 27th Oct Thanks for another lovely week at Puffin Cottage! We had some great meals at The Anchor, Quayside and the Creel Inn. Not forgetting the usual trip to see Aunty Betty! Beautiful walk in Edzell through the �blue door�. Very scenic! See you soon!
13th � 20th Oct Our second visit to Puffin Cottage in Johnshaven. We love it!

21st -28th Sept Many thanks for a very comfortable stay in your lovely cottage. Beautiful coastline, gorgeous sunrise and St Cyrus and Lunan Bay were stunning � our dog had a blast! Enjoyed �curry night� at The Anchor on Thursday. Need to come back and explore more!

17th - 21st Sept Lovely House and Hosts. Loved watching Storm �Ali� from the cosy cottage. Everything we needed was here. Pub food great. Friendly people walking by. So quiet in the cottage, could not hear the storm! Would love to come back.

9th � 14th Sept Fabulous. Homely cottage and what a great view. Our golden retriever made herself at home and it was great that both the front and back garden are safe and secure for her. Great walk to Gourdon - very easy. Go to St Cyrus by car. Great beach, but better still, drive further on to Lunan Bay � great beach and cafe! Anchor Inn is a must � we went every night. Great food and so friendly. Thanks also to Lindsey who clearly kindly arranged fabulous weather for our trip!
