  • "A beautiful Holliday cottage very well furnished, situated in view of the sand dunes and sea."

    What really made it for us was being able to sit on the deked area at the bottom of the enclosed garden and watch the world go by. We will hopefully be back next year.

    Thank you so much. It is very much our family cottage and we also love to watch the world (and hopefully a few dolphins) go by. 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.

    Thank you for your feedback -rug has gone and new sofa. Property Owner

    It was great to get back and relax after a day sightseeing. The raised patio in the walled garden gives you amazing uninterrupted views of the links and the Moray Firth. There is a lovely hotel two minutes from the property which welcomes dogs in their spacious lounge bar. I would recommend the sticky toffee pudding! We will definitely be returning to this warm welcoming cottage.

    It is fitted & finished to a very high standard. Not wanting to be too picky but there are just a couple of queries: * we put the dustbin out on the designated day but it wasn’t emptied?? * we used the side garden gate as our access point but didn’t find the key until part way through the week. The shared access was not highlighted on the listing * it would have be nice to have a few more hand & bath towels. We would highly recommend the cottage and if we travel that fa4 north again, it would be a delightful place to stay.

About the location

NAIRN

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.
