  • “Very clean, cosy, well equipped, dog-friendly, exceeded expectations”

    We stayed in both cottages, the first week in no. 2, then in no. 1. Both cottages felt very much like a home away from home and were very clean. It was very quiet there and it is possible to see the sea from some of the upper windows. It is only a 3 mins drive to the beautiful beach. The large kitchen is well equipped and has a proper kitchen table with four chairs, an oven, a microwave, a fridge and freezer, a dishwasher and a de gusto coffee machine. The goodies, that we found when we arrived ...

    We stayed in both cottages, the first week in no. 2, then in no. 1. Both cottages felt very much like a home away from home and were very clean. It was very quiet there and it is possible to see the sea from some of the upper windows. It is only a 3 mins drive to the beautiful beach. The large kitchen is well equipped and has a proper kitchen table with four chairs, an oven, a microwave, a fridge and freezer, a dishwasher and a de gusto coffee machine. The goodies, that we found when we arrived were very much appreciated - thank you very much George and Baiba for these. These included milk, butter, bread, jam, fruit and more. We also found oil, salt, pepper, plenty of de Gusto coffee and tea as well as some other goodies. George was most helpful with advice and directions without being obtrusive. We will miss our few chats. The sitting room with open beams had a comfy sofa and two comfy chairs with foot stools as well as a wood burning stove. All rooms had well functioning radiators and the en-suite bathrooms were beautiful and the well working towel rail was much appreciated. There was even a dog bed and bowls in case that you had forgotten your own. The dog walking area is large and our dog enjoyed it. We hope to be back soon.

Thurdistoft Farm Cottages

Two traditional, semi-detached cottages full of character and charm, with country and coastal views, rest with the historical area of Caithness, 9 miles from the town of Thurso. Set on a working farm in a remote area surrounded by grazing animals, these cottages offer a tranquil retreat for families or couples. Lovingly restored by the owners, the cottages are bursting with traditional features such as the original beams, exposed stone walls and quarry stone tiling. The cottages, which are sat next to each other, rest in an enclosed lawned garden, which is surrounded by some lovely countryside and farmland. The garden offers a tranquil spot to enjoy a meal or drink in the evening, after a day of exploring the delights of the area. A short drive into Thurso will give you access to a selection of restaurants, pubs, bars, cafes and many independent shops! For an action-packed day out, catch a ferry over to Mainland, the main island of Orkney where you will be greeted with beautiful views and 5,000 year old prehistoric monuments. These cottages are in the perfect location for a small family wanting to explore the north of Scotland and its surrounding settings, ideal for walking, exploring and all-round fun.

About the location

THURSO

John O' Groats 14 miles, Wick 20.4 miles.

Thurso is the most northerly town in mainland Scotland and also boasts the country's most northerly railway station! Guests can take a ferry across to Orkney. John O'Groats Ferries offer the popular day trip package of ferry and tour. Orkney is a great place to visit and the ferry crosses regularly throughout the year from Scrabster and Gills Bay. If you take your car then remember to book first! Another great place to visit is the Queen Elizabeth Castle of Mey, why not walk around the stunning gardens or take the children to the animal farm! Thurso benefits from a pretty seafront location and from here you can see the remains of Thurso Castle. The newer part of the town benefits from wide streets with Sir John's Square at the centre. The town offers a good selection of shops, restaurants and hotels and everything that visitors to the area could possibly need. The Dunnet beach is a fantastic beach to visit! It is also situated perfectly for a visit to John O'Groats, which is just 14 miles away and Durness, where Smoo Cave, Cape Wrath and the Durness Golf Course are well worth a visit.
