    “Having booked the chalet for 5 nights we wished by day 4 we had booked for the entire week as there is so much to do in this lovely area and we enjoyed the comfort of the chalet so much, as had the dogs.”

    The chalet is dog friendly and we were holidaying with our two dogs. On arrival we collected the key from the safety box and were delighted to find a cosy welcoming chalet, that was exceptionally clean and in no way suggested any previous residents had been dogs, no hair, no chewing and certainly no eu-de dog. The chalet is clean, bright and emits a sense of peace and tranquility, situated in a small chalet park, it is quiet, with few vehicles entering or leaving. There is electric heating ...

    The chalet is dog friendly and we were holidaying with our two dogs. On arrival we collected the key from the safety box and were delighted to find a cosy welcoming chalet, that was exceptionally clean and in no way suggested any previous residents had been dogs, no hair, no chewing and certainly no eu-de dog. The chalet is clean, bright and emits a sense of peace and tranquility, situated in a small chalet park, it is quiet, with few vehicles entering or leaving. There is electric heating throughout, which we didn't require until later each evening as the building is cosy, tea lights are provided along with holders throughout which adds to the ambiance of the chalet and its surroundings. The location is ideal for visiting the surrounding area and provides an abundance of walks both on beaches and in Scots pine forests. For those staying with dogs the owners have even thought of this too, they provide towels for drying your canine companions after a walk and dog dishes for eating and drinking from. A very minimalist layout works well in the chalet and the kitchen not only provides you with cooker, fridge and microwave but a lovely built in dining table. In the main bedroom there is a "Giant" bed, chest of drawers and built in hanging space. There is another bedroom that would be suitable for up to 2 adults and a child. All linen was supplied, including, bedding and towels, as were additional towels should you decide to go to the beach, there is also a picnic basket should you decide to take a picnic along. The "Giant" bed, which you can read about in the chalet information is comfy and there is an excellent working shower in the bathroom. TV and DVD player are available if you find the tranquility too much! And there are DVD's in abundance as are books. I begun reading one and purchased it locally so I could finish it once home. We really enjoyed our trip back to my husbands homeland and the choice of this chalet was a wise move, we would readily return again. If your looking for somewhere central to stay with your canine companion, return to a slower way of life or take some time out from technology, then I'd thoroughly recommend The Decoy, it certainly ticked all our boxes - and the dogs loved it too.

The property

A traditional, homely wooden cabin near Dornoch in Scotland.

The cosy living and beautiful location make this cabin perfect for a family break in the north of Scotland.

The open plan living area in The Decoy is warming and cosy, complete with rustic wooden furnishings as well as comfortable seating, TV, radio and a woodburning stove to make it that extra bit welcoming.

The kitchen is also predominantly wooden with some vintage-looking fixtures and fittings adding a real nostalgia to the cabin.

To the back of the cabin is two cosy and warming bedrooms as well as a shower room.

Outside of The Decoy to the front is a delightful decking area with furniture and views to the surrounding trees and scenery, the perfect place to enjoy your morning coffee.

The seaside resort of Dornoch sits under 2 miles away, it is an incredible town offering everything you need from shops, cafes, delis and restaurants to a castle, golf course and a beach, it really does have something for everybody.

Enjoy a spot of whisky and gin tasting, or discover gift, art and antique shops.

Nearby Embo is home to a children's play park, tennis courts and an indoor pool.

There are three stunning beaches within a two mile radius of the chalet, as well as forest walks.

An easy drive takes you to Golspie where you can visit the stunning Dunrobin Castle with its falconry displays.

Dornoch is in a fairly secluded location, however the stunning city of Inverness is just over 40 miles south and if you really want you could visit the world famous John o'Groats, the most northern point of the U.K is just over 70 miles away.

The Decoy is one of a small number of individually owned Norwegian chalets set in 5 acres of privately owned Scots pine woodland.
