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.

There is a pet supplement of £40 per dog per week (please note they are to be kept off all furniture and remain downstairs at all times). Regrettably cats cannot be accepted at this property.
