  • A great holiday in Cromarty
    4.2 OUT OF 5
    Submitted on 06/08/2018 by Kristeen from St Andrews

    Ivydene is a very spacious cottage located in the heart of Cromarty. It’s closeness to the beach and access to beautiful walks, shops, cafes and restaurants mean you can easily enjoy a few days without ever feeling the need to go anywhere else. The cottage itself is very comfortable with bags of room for a family with older and younger children alike (although the absence of Wi-fi may be an issue for some). Kitchen well equipped though a lack of storage space for groceries. Dog friendly although there is no garden as such - just a gravelled area to the back with a drying line. This was a bit of a draw back for us but not a massive inconvenience as the beach and park are within a stone’sg throw. A welcome booklet would be a good and simple addition - offering advice on things to do, where to eat etc., from a local’s perspective - this is helpful to those visiting the Black Isle and who have no knowledge of the area. All in all we had a good time.

  • An excellent adress

    Nous avons passé un excellent séjour à Cromarty, charmant petit village avec toutes les commodités (distributeur bancaire, supérette, poste, commerces et restaurants). Les propriétaires ont été très accueillants et discrets, la maison était vraiment spacieuse, agréable, fonctionnelle et très propre, et bien équipée (juste quelques grosses casseroles et grands bols à prévoir en plus). La location était bien située, à 30 minutes d'Inverness, et proche de la côte Ouest (splendide), du parc des Cairngorms et de la route du Whisky. Nous recommandons cette location, vous ne regretterez pas votre choix.

  • Lovely spacious and very well situated

    Great spacious house for a week.Spotlessly clean. Very homely with everything we needed except there wasn't a frying pan or a large pot to cook with which is odd as the kitchen is amazingly well equipped. This is a really good house for a family or group of friends. Top two rooms a challenge if you are a light sleeper as Velux windows with pale blinds so very bright in the summer in Scotland where it hardly gets dark at night! All bedrooms are spacious. No Wifi or phone reception in the house, but some gadgets picked up an open wifi in the living room which was weak and sporadic. Address on booking form not the actual address of property. Directions to property on booking form correct. Friendly owner who met us with keys and showed us around the property. No hesitation in recommending staying at Ivydene.

  • Ideal family cottage.

    Large cottage ideal for two families with a lovely coastal location. Plenty of facilities within the cottage and it's location was close to shops and pub/restaurants with close proximity to holiday attractions. Plenty of towels and hot water with use of heating for chilly evenings.

  • Lovely cottage in a lovely location

    We had a really enjoyable stay in this cottage. Cromarty is a lovely town and the house is really well located, clean and well kept. The cottage is really spacious and the bedrooms are all really good sizes with plenty of room. There were 5 of us but the house can easily accommodate 8 with loads of available space. The shower was also very good, a must after lots of time on the beach!

    Everything that we needed was provided and during a none too warm and sometimes wet week the constant hot water and central heating were much appreciated. And there is great bakers just round the corner.

  • Wonderful holiday

    We had a most enjoyable stay. Cromarty is magical and the house ideal for our needs and so central. Only 4 of us could make the trip but if all 8 had gone we feel the house might have been a little short on bathroom facilities.

    Cottage immaculate. Allowed pets which was ideal. All in all the weather was kind and had a lovely holiday in Cromarty and would recommend to anyone


Traditional terraced cottage in the quiet old town part of Cromarty. The cottage is conveniently located in the conservation town of Cromarty, only a two minute walk from the beach and a short walk from shops, local eateries and inns. Inverness is a 30 minute drive.
