The space

With its own entrance it has wonderful views from the sitting room over the garden and woodland which belongs to the property. Much thought went into the design of the Pine Cone and with its high ceilings and kitchen area which can be closed off it offers a wonderful place to sit and relax.There is a bedroom with double bed and modern ensuite. The owners are dog lovers and dogs are welcome.
The woodland area includes a tree house and fire pit and table for eating under the stars!

Matti and Bill's place is a hidden gem with it's own private woods for you to relax in. They have thought of everything, a starter pack with some delicious items, loads of books, cosy blankets, the list goes on! We were only there for a couple of days and pretty shattered from our trips out that we didn't get to light a fire and relax in the woods but there's always next time. Top tip - make sure you try the zip wire and climb up to the tree house where a little surprise might be waiting :) We also enjoyed chatting to Matti and Bill during our stay and playing the Daisy their dog. If you're looking for a cosy and comfortable piece of heaven look no further.

We were made to feel welcome from the moment we pulled into the driveway. Initial supplies of bread and milk were provided alongside cereals and delicious homemade jams for us to enjoy. Matti and her family even took care of our dog whilst we went to Aberdeen for the day. Hosts were so accommodating and kind and the pine cone apartment was just charming. We would love to stay again.

The apartment is well organised and very comfortable with windows and glass doors overlooking a peaceful garden and woodland. We enjoyed some of the many beautiful walks in the area and also sitting in comfortable chairs in the garden chatting to Matti’s friendly dog, Daisy. The shower was good and the coffee machine much appreciated - as were the newly laid eggs we were provided with on our arrival. Warmly recommended. We would love to stay there again.

We had a fabulous stay at the Pine Cone- it's lovely and cosy and has everything you'd need for a relaxing break away. Location is great as only 15 min walk into Banchory and right next to Scolty Wood which is great for walking. We felt so at home here and a lovely welcome when we arrived. Lots of nice little extras too with bread, milk, etc that we weren't expecting. Thank you to Matti & Bill for a great stay. We will definitely recommend! :-)
