“Cold, dank and dirty!”
Reviewed 15 May 2016 for a stay in April 2016

people found this review helpful

We were so disappointed with this property. Our stay in April was not a comfortable one. The cottage was cold because the heating was very ineffective and the whole place smelled damp and was in need of a very through clean. Finding cobwebs and dead insects all over the house was not pleasant.
The water supply to the shower needs improvement as it dribbled out with no pressure. There was a good supply of cooking implements available in the kitchen and the bed linen was of a good quality but the bed mattress needed replacing.

“Superb well equipped rural cottage”
Reviewed 26 April 2016 for a stay in April 2016

Excellent self catering cottage in fields outside Brora - perfectly suited to the needs of two anglers for a week's fishing. Very well equipped with everything one could need - from wide range of cooking pots, board games, to local maps and guides and even a sewing kit. Warm central heating and plenty of hot water for two hot baths in the evening after a cold day fishing.

“Just what I needed”

My son and I stayed for one week and fell in love with the landscape and the house. The house was well equipped with all the cooking items, linens and other items we needed. The view out the front windows was breath taking. We used the two bedrooms within the cottage and didn't need to use the third bedroom at all. This was a vacation meant for relaxation and to wind down for both of us and this was perfect. We did small day trips to Dornoch, Helmsdale and Golspie and enjoyed every moment. We will remember this place for a long time.

“Perfect peace and quiet”
Reviewed 18 February 2014 for a stay in February 2014

We were looking for a place to retreat to and enjoy peace and quiet and time together - this place absolutely delivered. Cozy and welcoming, it was like stepping back in time, a perfect wee place to switch off and relax. The cottage is private but not isolated, the scenery is beautiful and the silence in the morning and evening is almost tangible. Lovely walks and plenty of space for the children to play. It is a bit of a walk into Brora itself, but only 5 minutes in the car and you are at the beach. I had not appreciated that there was no access to the annexe from within the main house, to get to the third bedroom you have to go outside, this could be an issue if your children were young as you'd not be able to keep a close eye on them. That apart, it had everything we needed.
