Welcome Cottages

A carefully curated collection of properties that offer high quality, good value accommodation in great locations across the UK, Ireland, France and Italy


Description

Set in a rural location, this property has sea views and has a number of attractions closeby.

This detached, former fisherman/crofter’s cottage has been tastefully restored to provide very comfortable holiday accommodation. The property overlooks the Kyles of Tongue, a dramatic expanse of pristine golden sand, and the many skerries that create this fabulous coastline. The ever-changing seascape and light make this area a truly get-away-from-it-all holiday experience. The area has much to offer, with Ben Hope and Ben Loyal for the serious climber and low level coastal walks. Smoo Cave, Castle of Mey, the former home of the late Queen Mother, Cape Wrath and a day trip from John O’Groats to the Orkney Isles are within a short drive. Loch and sea fishing are available, and a wide range of seabirds, such as puffins, waders and hen harriers can be easily spotted. Shop 500 yards, pub and restaurant 50 yards.

Ground floor: Living room. Dining room/kitchen with tiled floor. Study. Shower room with toilet. First floor: 1 double bedroom.

Multi-fuel burner in living room (initial fuel included). Electric heaters and electricity by meter reading. Oil central heating (controlled by owner), bed linen and towels included. Freeview TV. DVD. Electric cooker. Microwave. Washer/dryer. Dishwasher. Fridge/freezer. Small garden with sitting-out area. Parking (2 cars). No smoking.

    Cottage was pleasant enough but sad to say bed was very uncomfortable and no access to toilet upstairs. Three logs was not enough as a first supply and toilet rolls were also not available. Overall it was a good holiday .

    An outstanding location. Property is very hospitable. Mattress on bed needs an extra bit of padding. Scenery is out of this world.

    Excellent location and a wonderful cottage. It was a relaxing and a spiritual area and indeed cottage. We were both sad to leave and we have recommended it to friends and family.
