Matthew Clubb
Located on the Scottish north coast, less than an hour from Aberdeen, this is the Blue Hoose that is not actually blue! But it is a building well known to the locals of Gardenstown and enjoys an enviable position overlooking the harbour and Gamrie Bay. The building dates back to the very establishment of the village of Gardenstown in the 18th century and is a Scottish Listed Building (Category B). It’s original function was that of a fisherman’s net store and warehouse, hence its location right on the harbour wall and the double-height of the lower level where nets would have been hauled in for maintenance. The upper storeys were possibly used for habitation at some time although sails and nets were also known to have been made there. After a long period of vacancy and partial conversion the Blue Hoose was purchased by Matthew Clubb in 2017. He completed the renovation of the building and made it the two bedroom house it now is. There are two bedrooms and a bathroom on the top floor, the kitchen is a double height space on the lower level. The kitchen leads onto a spacious veranda right next to the harbour which is ideal for summer evening meals and BBQs.
We've been hosting for a couple of years now and are really pleased that we get to share this magical part of the UK with others. Scotland has so much to be seen. If you have any queries about availability, check-in times or the facilities available please get in touch. Please note, check in is only on Saturdays or Sundays, but if you would like other days please let us know and we will try to accommodate you. Thank you.
Gardenstown is one of Scotland's best kept secrets with a vibrant community. Unlike some of the smaller villages along this part of the coast there is still a large community here serviced by the school, the church, a shop and a great pub. In the summer the harbour is alive with locals and tourists enjoying the waters edge and the charity café that opens for 12 weeks. All year round an active fishing community ensure that there's always life in the harbour. Please visit the Gardenstown community website pages for details of events.
