Customer Comments

Selected comment(s) from customers who have enjoyed staying at this property:
  1. Cottage was exceptionally clean and well equipped,location excellent for visiting North Coasts attractions. First time visiting this far north, but not the last. Probably best holiday to date and definitely best cottage we have stayed in. (even though it was October!). Oct 2012.
  2. Most relaxing holiday with views over the sea watching the weather change - beautiful. June 2012.
  3. This cottage was fantastic. It had everything needed and more. We had a lovely holiday, went out and about from here very easily. Saw a lot of the top of Scotland and enjoyed a day trip to Orkney. The maxi day trip was a good way of seeing all the interesting points on Orkney would recommend this. June 2012.
  4. The welcome we got was warm and friendly, everything was explained to us and a pint of milk for our first cup of tea was waiting in the fridge. The views from the ’dining room’ were stunning, the location was very quiet but not isolated, just perfect! Great walks for the dog from the door! And plenty of dog waste bins on the way! April 2012.
  5. This cottage is like ’a home from home’. Immaculate, very cosy, in a beautiful location, and the owners are very friendly and helpful people. Would recommend. Sept 2011.
  6. Owners very particular that visitors should enjoy their stay. Very kind and helpful. Aug 2011.
  7. 1st class accommodation. 1st class welcome and advice about the area. Wanted for nothing from the accommodation or the owners. Local pub was quiet but very friendly. Expect a wave and hello from people you’ve never met before. Dont think much of John O Groats but go further to see the stacks of Duncansby and you wont be disappointed. Little Fish n chip shop near the river in Thurso will give you the best fish supper you’ve had in a long time. 1st class place to spend a quiet holiday in any weather, ours was sunny all the way... Well done to John and Bev. July 2011.
  8. Loved everything about our holiday. Great location, property and owners. Made us very welcome, enjoyed watching puffins and our various trips - particularly the Orkney trip. We need to go back. June 2011.
  9. Great location. Could look over the sea whilst eating. Excellent accommodation. June 2011.
  10. Superbly equipped. Excellent gas cooker. Everything worked beautifully. Ideal for touring north coast. Did a day trip to Orkney islands from John O’ Groats. May 2011.
  11. This was a lovely cottage and would not hesitate in recommending it. The location was wonderful, lovely views out to sea and self contained and private. There was just the two of us and was perfect for our requirements, the cottage was well supplied. The ’welcome pack’-bottle of wine milk etc was appreciated. The owner was very friendly and helpful. Easy parking attached to property. A classic north highland cottage. There was an open fire and all modern amenities. April 2011.
  12. Excellent location for touring the area. The cottage was spotlessly clean and well equipped. Views were spectacular. Would recommend to others. April 2011.
  13. The sea views from the property were uplifting. Oct 2010.
  14. Perfect holiday cottage with every need catered for. Little extras like milk in the fridge, tea, sugar and sachets of coffee, chocolate and horlicks. In the bathroom shower gel and bath foam and boxes of tissues in all the rooms. All you needed to take was your food. The location was wonderful and the garden and views were a delight. Sept 2010.
  15. Nice location, good accommodation. Friendly and helpful owners. Aug 2010.
  16. The location, beautiful cottage, great views of the sea, owners of cottage had thought of everything so that we didnt have to bring anything whilst staying. April 2010.
  17. Comfortable cottage with every amenity including a supply of tea and coffee plus toiletries etc. Beautifully decorated and finished. Definitely 5 star accommodation. Oct 2009.
  18. It was as advertised, exellent and very nice people. Aug 2009.
  19. Very clean and tidy with every need considered. Aug 2009.
  20. This part of the world is not where you get 40 degrees of sun however the weather was very good and we always managed to get out and about. The peace and quiet was a real bonus and I felt fully refreshed on my return to city life. The cottage is situated in a lovely little village and the views from the small conservatory look out over open sea to the islands of Orkney. It was extremely well fitted out with everything you could need available. The couple who own it met us and gave us a full tour, ensuring we felt comfortable with all the various appliances etc. A full folder of information was also there, with a lovely bottle of wine! July 2009.
