Customer Comments

Selected comment(s) from customers who have enjoyed staying at this property:
  1. Property was just as described and better! Quiet but still only an easy half an hour walk to the local hotel if you want company. Landlord called on day of arrival to make sure we had everything we needed which made us feel very welcome. Fishing and walking easily accessible so make sure you pack your boots, waders and rods for a truly relaxing holiday. June 2012.
  2. This was a beautiful cottage, it was a real home not a holiday one, didn’t want to leave. Oct 2011.
  3. The location of this property is excellent being close to sand dunes and the beach. Sept 2011.
  4. Enjoyed "John Naver’s" very much; a real home from home, with everything you could need, including towels which aren’t mentioned in the description. Approx 1 mile into Bettyhill, cottage at Invernaver, along single track roads, but roads generally quiet. Nice beach across field; although sheep / horses, we had no access problems, even with dog. Garden secure for pets (and presumably children although we didn’t have any with us!). Small dog friendly pub with good food at Farr Bay (opposite edge of Bettyhill to cottage). Overall, a great place to stay, in a very beatiful area of the country. Aug 2011.
  5. We stayed a this wonderful cottage for the second year running and increased our stay from 7-14 days. It is the ideal spot for couples with dogs. We had two with us this year and they were in dog heaven. The only reason we will not be going again is that we plan a big family holiday in Ireland next year. Were it not such a long journey for us we would come back every year. If you want a really relaxing holiday this is the place for you. The weather was really good too and a few fish were caught. July 2011.
  6. Property well situated for John O’Groats, Cape Wrath and other tourist attractions on the north coast. Although furniture and fittings were clean the cupboards both in kitchen and bedrooms had owners belongings in them, and the kitchen utensils and crockery had seen better days. May 2011.
  7. Excellent location for all north coast ’attactions’, cottage felt like home. Oct 2010.
  8. A perfect, relaxing environment, with a great deal of thought on the needs of guests. Sept 2010.
  9. Excellent quiet country coastal site. The rooms were large and well furnished, just like a home. The kitchen had excellent facilities, especially the range of baking vessels. There was a good stokc of spare lightbulbs etc. The bedding and towels were made from first rate cotton. It was easy to keep clean. The garden was larger than expected. The two parking spaces could take a total of three cars. It was just perfect and we still six days later feel chilled. Aug 2010.
  10. Beautiful clean property, in scenic location ideal for walkers and fishermen. July 2010.
  11. In a lovely location and a nicely decorated with a lovely garden which was well fenced. June 2010.
  12. On arrival we could not believe how lovely the cottage was and suitable in every way. The conservatory was wonderful to sit in to take in the view and read or relax. The cottage feels like a comfy home from home, especially as the owner has filled it with such interesting and beautiful ornaments and personal items. I would advise potential customers about open plan aspect of cottage if they have pets. Our dog slept comfortably in his traveling cage as we could not prevent him repeatedly coming upstairs at night without it. Garden is large and safe for both children and pets. We booked again for 2 weeks in 2011 as soon as we got home. July 2010.
  13. Ideal for our needs. April 2010.
  14. The cottage was outstanding one of the best if not the best we have ever used. It was so inviting with everything you could possible want and more. Idyllic location as well. Sept 2009.
  15. It was situated in a very quiet area, the garden was secure for our dogs and the views were wonderful. Everything you could need was provided in the cottage. Aug 2009.
  16. The property was amazing. It was larger than expected. The location of it was perfect right next to Torrisdale beach and directly surrounding the cottage the fields were full of beautiful horses. The cottage was spotless and had everything we needed and more. The whole house was well equipped. It was better than a home from home. June 2009.
  17. Found easily and information on area great. We were very fortunate with the weather but Torrisdale beach is fantastic at any time. June 2009.
  18. This property is the best we have ever seen. It has everything you need and more. The kitchen has every utensil you could need, the oven and hob were excellent. The cottage was spotless and beautifully decorated. We honestly were shocked when we saw it as it was gorgeous. Its situated right next to Torrisdale beach which is heaven. The immediate surroundings are so peaceful. Its the perfect get away. We felt at home as soon as we stepped inside. We screamed with joy. June 2009.
  19. Very well appointed property in a beautiful setting. May 2009.
  20. The cottage was excellent with everything you could need (a real home from home). The garden was also excellent and the easy access to Torrisdale beach was second to none. May 2009.
