    House perfect in terms of location and everything we needed inside, comfortable and lots to do in bad weather. One small problem (not the fault of the owners but previous guests) sorted really quickly so great customer service. We stayed out of the normal season so very quiet which suited us. Everything within a short drive (shops, restaurants, harbours etc) and beautiful walks which we enjoyed with our dog.

    A truly wonderful place...perfect location by the beach yet within easy reach of Wick and Thurso - and trips to Orkney. The cottage was probably the best we've stayed in with levels of comfort and equipment extremely high. Would definitely return!

    House location is amazing...looking out onto the sea was so relaxing. We saw seals, dolphins and we think a basking shark. The beach is less than 5mins walk, not just any beach, a clean, massive white sand beach - just be careful as the start is quite rocky. Our dogs loved it. House has a great big garden which is fully enclosed so again dogs loved it. The house itself is a great size, the rooms are of good size, beds are fine not major comfy but that's an individual preference. The house is close to wick town centre and approx 15 miles from John ogroats. Plenty to do or even just have chill days in the house. We had to give the gouse quite a good clean...things like the fridges were quite dirty. Also, we didn't know until we got there that dogs weren't allowed upstairs which is where all the bedrooms are...we worked around this but had we known before its unlikely we would have booked as our dogs sleep in our room in their bed in our house. I would go back to the house and recommend it.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the owner; Thank you for your comments. I am sorry you found the fridge to be dirty. That would be unusual and we are taking specific care to ensure it does not happen again. Regarding dogs being allowed upstairs, booking condition 14 states that pets are not allowed upstairs, on beds or furniture. I believe you had to acknowledge these terms and conditions before you booked the cottage so I am uncertain as to why you have reviewed that you did not know this in advance.

    Great place for sightseeing or chilling out. The dogs loved the large garden. Would definitely go back.
