Bayview is a charming traditional seaside cottage occupying a prime position in the picture postcard village of Collieston. Originally two fisherman’s cottages; Bayview has been sympathetically converted and extended and now provides a high standard of accommodation in a superb setting. Situated in a quiet no through lane in an elevated position above the harbour, it looks down onto the pretty horse shoe shaped sandy beach and harbour.
All rooms enjoy fantastic sea views. The pretty lounge has a welcoming open fireplace and modern sofas. The conservatory at the far end of the cottage has large windows that maximise the views; an ideal venue to spot the passing sea life; porpoises, dolphins and seals are frequently seen close to shore. There is a bright, modern kitchen/dining room. Upstairs are two beautifully presented double bedrooms and a modern family bathroom. The gardens consist of small lawn terraces let into the adjoining slopes that lead down to the sea, via a series of meandering paths.
