    I visit Nairn regularly and its the best cottage ive stayed in. Some small issues, toilet seat. Definitely needs addessed. Some little cleaning niggles, dishwasher trap was filthy, there was alot of cob webs, but i think thats just part of cottage. When stripping beds, the main bedroom duvet was pretty stained.. think could be replaced. Pillows were thin... past best... still loved cottage, and booked again.

  • "This was our first, and hopefully not our last, visit to this lovely cottage."

    We arrived the day before our wedding anniversary and were delighted with the bottle of bubbly on the table. Thank you! It was the perfect place for a cosy Christmas, providing a wonderful kitchen/dining area which was spacious, well-equipped, comfortable and beautifully decorated with Christmas tree and lights. The lounge was was perfect to relax in after bracing (often wet!) walks by the sea. The bedrooms were also comfortable and warm, the bedroom upstairs provided another cosy 'retreat' as well as a lovely view of the Links and the sea....... and snow on our first morning. There were so many lovely touches which gave the cottage an extra homely feel, including the beautiful patchwork quilts, the throws and the paintings. Sincere thanks to the owner and to those who clean and prepare the cottage for visitors' arrival. We would love to return! Just a couple of little maintenance items for attention: the bathroom sink tap needs a washer (it was dripping) and the lock on the bathroom door wasn't working. Neither of these affect our overall delight and appreciation of this wonderful cottage. We would also like to commend Sykes for the ease of booking and the on-going, relevant information.

    It’s nicely situated 2 minutes from the beach and it has an enclosed sunny garden facing the sea. We had two wee poodles with us and it was ideal. Side gate from the garden gave us access out on to the links. We liked it so much we have already booked for next year. One or two wee things would make it even better- some trays to use for carrying out lunch to eat in the garden. Oh and some extra towels. Apart from that, perfection!

  • "We had a wonderful 2 weeks at Seaview."

    It is in an ideal position, lovely views from the well maintained garden and the bedroom. The beach is about 3 minutes walk away, 2 seconds if you have a over zealous black lab with you. Town is 5-10 minutes walk, a very good Co-op just round the corner. Wonderful takeaways etc all deliver. Shower is lovely and a good size cubicle, kitchen is very roomy and well equipped. The living room is cosy and even better if you have the log burner going.It felt a bit strange having to walk through next doors garden to get to the front door but we used the side gate and parked the car there, which was easier and didn't disturb the neighbours. We had one small problem which we contacted Sykes about, they dealt with the problem quickly and we were then contacted by Ruth (owner) who sorted it out straightaway. So overall we loved it would love to return.

  • "Our recommendation score is based on it’s location because Nairn is a lovely place And the cottage is primed in a lovely spot so you can see the sea from your bed."

    You can walk on the beach for miles and there’s a lovely riverside walk which was a lucky find. Overall, Nairn is a clean a nice environment. The downside is that you have to walk through next doors garden (which is ok as they’re lovely neighbours) and it doesn’t have its own designated parking space as advertised but it wasn’t an issue as it was quiet and we could park in the road. The kitchen could do with a big decluttering of personal items and replacing worn and tired items. Unfortunately, the fridge freezer wasn’t working however there was a small replacement. Luckily we hadn’t preordered a lot of frozen items but it would have been good to have been prenotifed of this. The rear garden was lovely for the dog and for us to enjoy the exceptional weather Nairn had during our stay. Overall, a lovely cottage and we would stay here again!

    Thank you for the feedback. The fridge freezer has since been replaced. I work as a Food Editor and recipe developer and myself use all the items in the kitchen, we will always get rid of anything that is broken, but items will be used, and may be worn. People seem to like the kitchen, but I 100% understand it is personal preference. As mentioned the parking space is at the back gate on the links, the side access does have access through our neighbours back yard, 1 min from parking on the road. Sykes have a number of other lovely properties in Nairn, which may be more to your taste because apart from the fridge, nothing else will be changing in our cottage. Property Owner

  • "This cottage is perfectly located and views are amazing."

    Well equipped with everything we needed for a great break. Everything in the town is within easy walking distance. The Links/grass fields get very busy in holiday periods with many cars parking right around and near the cottage. Just a few niggles to mention: At the time of our holiday (June) there was no QR code to scan anywhere in the cottage. We looked everywhere! This was disappointing as I though this was a requirement of Sykes too? The sofa in the living room is incredibly is uncomfortable. Not sure why it needs to be a sofa bed instead or a proper settee. The rug in the living room is very worn and frayed and a tripping hazard and should be replaced. The shared access should definitely be mentioned on the description so you are aware but it did not cause us any issues. The ‘off road parking’ is very misleading and we ended up parking on the street. The off road parking is on the grass of The Links fields and it gets very busy with other cars during the day l, and you can easily get blocked in by inconsiderate visitors. All in all we would definitely return and stay again but the description needs to be changed to reflect the parking and access.

    Staycation has made it busier this year but is possible to park by the back gate on the grass and this is off-road parking. There is indeed parking on the road, the access goes by the attached cottage's back door, the neighbours always use their front door. We usually park on the street, it is one min to the front door. I feel confident in the description of the house. Looking forward to welcoming you again. Property Owner

  • "We have holidayed in Nairn on and off for 25 years including the caravan site and various cottages."

    This cottage has the best location. Brilliant views over the links to the sea from the enclosed garden, the sitting room or the main bedroom. Out the garden gate you are right on the links. There is 2 pubs with beer gardens within 1 minute walk. The town centre is less than 5 minutes. Beware of leaving dogs unattended in the garden though. We put our dogs there while we unpacked the car and both jumped over the wall to come and find us. The cottage itself is a bit of a tardis. The kitchen dining area is suprising spacious. The kitchen facilities are excellent. The wifi is slow but sufficient for checking emails browsing etc. Minor niggles? No radio or TV in the main bedroom. The rug in the sitting room a bit tired and frayed. We found the two seater couch in the TV room uncomfortable. It looks like a fold down bed setee so comfort may be compromised because of that. No decent sized coffee mugs. If you like a big mug of coffee bring your own. Another review mentioned the shared access. This isn't an issue. The neighbours are welcoming. After I asked them about the bin day I found they had put the bin out for me. Overall - highly recommended. We would make it our first choice if we were booking a cottage in Nairn.

About the location


Inverness 16 miles.

Nairn is an attractive and lively seaside town dating back to Victorian times. It has long been a popular holiday destination and is just 16 miles from the town of Inverness. Nairn even lays claim to being one of the driest and sunniest places in the country! The town offers some of the top beaches in Scotland and cleanest bathing waters in Britain. Also, one of the only two dolphin colonies in the UK is based in the Moray Firth. Nairn is steeped in history and is closely linked with the Battle of Culloden, whilst nearby Fort George is Europe’s best preserved 18th century military fortification. Shakespeare’s famed Cawdor Castle and Brodie Caste are both within 15 mins drive. Golfing enthusiasts will be attracted to the two 18-hole championship courses, including the Nairn Golf Club, and the town also has an outdoor tennis court as well as a squash court for hire. The yearly Nairn Highland Games in August draws a wide crowd and The Nairn Book and Arts Festival is a popular year event. Whitewater rafting, tubing and cliff jumping are all available for those with a spirit for adventure. Day trips from the local airport are available to Orkney and Shetland and the Cairngorm National Park with skiing and hiking are within 1 hour. Nairn is an ideal centre for exploring, or just relaxing.

Note: From Monday 6th August to Sunday 19th August there is a fair on the Links by the house and the games which is know as 'The Nairn Highland Games' which is a big event that takes place every year.
The games have to have music off at 10.30 at night.
