we had a wonderful relaxing time in one of the lodges at Natural Retreats, the resort has been carefully planned giving privacy and seclusion but all with a view. The lodge was spacious, light, well equipped and extremely comfortable. We enjoyed our stay here and self catered most of the time with the exception of eating in the storehouse at...

The lodge was stunning - so much day light, great views, the whole layout of the sitting/dining area felt so good. It wouldn't matter what the weather was like as you were quite happy to look out the window and it actually got too warm so we opened the huge patio windows/doors!! The welcome pack was very much appreciated. Lovely...

Our lodge was a brilliant venue for my sister's 60th birthday celebration. Lunch at the Stacks bistro and then back to the lodge for celebratory drinks, cake and games. A good time was had by all. A day trip to Durness was brilliant with a lovely evening meal in the Craggen Inn at Melness.

Lovely stop off point as part of our NC500 adventure. We had the yellow house overlooking the harbour and the sea. Sunset and sunrise from the sofa, amazing! The houses are beautiful, spacious and very cosy too!

Finding the accommodation online we decided to book a last minute week away for myself and my parents up North at the start of May. Upon arrival, we were all taken at just how modern and luxurious the lodges were! Inside, the open-plan living/dining area is perfect for family socialising with the added bonus of panoramic views of the coast...
