“You have gave some very thankful people an exceptional well deserved holiday”
Reviewed July 11, 2014 for a stay in July 2014

Truly amazing. The house, location and exceptional forever changing views of the sea and the warmest of days made this extra special. You have made five very worthy people extremely happy and they want to return very very soon, thank you so much. A truly amazing and beautiful home from home, thank you so much.

“Wonderful Place to Stay and Relax!”
Reviewed May 9, 2014 for a stay in May 2014

My partner and I stayed at Lilybank with our 14 month old and we couldn't have asked for better. The cottage was very well equipped and cosy with everything you need for travelling with a baby, it was a real home from home. Rosie provided us with some groceries when we arrived and some home baking! We brought our own cot etc but we could have used the one provided.
It was so quiet and peaceful yet only a short drive from shops/take aways/beaches and the like. The views were outstanding and we were very lucky to have great weather too.

“Great Accommodation with Fabulous Views”

At the property we were met and shown round by the owner, who answered any queries we had. Fresh flowers, milk in the fridge and home-made empire biscuits were all thoughtful touches we really appreciated. The property was spacious, lovely, peaceful, warm, comfortable and had everything we required, including panoramic views. The cottage location was excellent, as it was able to be seen from the main road (so easy to find again), with lots of places of interest nearby - ranging from small fishing villages to larger towns. .

“All round fantastic holiday”
Reviewed April 23, 2013 for a stay in March 2013

Stayed at Lilybank over Easter. Fantastic location with stunning views with a lot to do in the surrounding area. The accommodation itself is spacious with a lot of light - particularly in the sun room. The beds are very comfortable making for a good nights sleep. The garden is perfect for children to burn off excess energy and the empire biscuits were a welcome treat on arrival. Thanks Rosie and David - see you soon!

“Great cottage with unbeatable views”
Reviewed April 15, 2012 for a stay in April 2012

Stayed in Lilybank in April 2012 with family and friends. High standard of accommodation and unbeatable and quiet location overlooking the North Sea (panoramic views from the dining room and conservatory). We were met by the owner upon our arrival who made us most welcome and had already provided us with some groceries to start our stay (there is also the opportunity to purchase some fresh veg from the farm - delicious). Good selection of places to visit in the area and some lovely coastal walks just a stones throw away. Would recommend to others and would definitely return for another visit.
