  • "We've just had the best weekend here."

    The house is stunning & in a beautiful location. The views are something else! We will definitely come back here

  • "Lovely location and property ideal for the 8 of us."

    Massive bonus was the sunken trampoline in the huge garden which the children loved. The pool was small but adequate and again the inflatable’s were a huge success with the little ones. Fantastic views and amazing sunsets. We had a couple of issues which Alan dealt with very promptly. Lovely holiday enjoyed by us all thank you.

  • "First of all the positives:- 1."

    Location of the house is great, set on its own with no neighbours overlooking. 2. The 360 degree views are amazing. 3. The garden is large and the kids loved the trampoline. The kids also loved the horses in the fields around the house. Now for the negative. 1. Cleanliness wasn’t the best. We had to wash the majority of the dishes and glasses before we used them, they were all dirty and had not been washed properly previously. 2. The simple things matter, we arrived to discover there was no toilet roll in the house at all. We have stayed in several places over the years and never had this before. Had to make the round trip back to the Tesco in Wick to get some. 3. The house is looking tired, with a bit of TLC it could be amazing. 4. The pool is located in what I can best describe as a shed. There were actually a few screws left sicking out, half screwed in.

  • "The only thing that was disappointing was there was no welcome pack, with other sykes bookings the owners have left basic provisions."

    Although the owners did fit a gate when requested which was appreciated. Other than that we had a great holiday.

  • "The house was just as expected, plenty of room for the 6 of us."

    Very quiet which is just what we wanted. The sunroom with the underfloor heating is lovely, however if there was 8 of you there is not enough seating. The shower is quite small, and the jacuzzi Bath takes a long time to fill. All in all though it’s a lovely house and we had a lovely holiday.

    Thank you for your feedback, glad you enjoyed your time with us and we would be delighted to welcome you back in the future. Property Owner

  • "Lovely position for a property."

    The property was far from the cleanliness standards we expected which was the most disappointing thing. Felt like owners had just moved out for our arrival. Dusty sills, dirty windows, dust under chairs and furniture, oven greasy and dirty, shower dirty, cobwebs and dead flies on sills ets. Washing machine drawers dirty, tumble drier condenser was full of water as was the fridge water unit unsure how long it had been sitting. Food in cupboards and had to empty the dishwasher fior cups etc The Pool had flies and beasts in it so unsure how clean this would be to use. There were dirty socks etc under one of the beds. Really disappointing for the money we paid. Have photos of all the above if required. Also disappointing that a big house like this had one small shower.

  • "The house is good but tv in bedroom was not working as could not get signal."

    The swimming pool is in a shed outside it is freezing the shed has lots off holes in it .the pool water was freezing.

    Thanks for your feedback and apologies for these issues. The bedroom tv has a roku box to enable connection to tv channels, it looks like this had been moved to the sun lounge by a previous guest prior to your stay. We have now installed a new Roku box in the bedroom. The pool is located in an outside summerhouse with double glazing throughout as per the photos on Sykes site. The pool temperature is maintained at 28 degrees, as per your telephone call about the pool temperature we increased the temperature above this and as we didnt hear from you again we assumed the temperature was fine.

  • "Beautiful stunning house in a peaceful setting."

    Very comfortable beds. House well equipped. Large lounge on first floor has stunning views. Conservatory was welcoming and cosy. Great modern kitchen. Large garden with big trampoline enjoyed by all. The swimming pool was the icing on the cake, my granddaughter didn't want to get out! Plenty of room for 5 adults and one 2 year old. Great location for exploring the top of Scotland and Reiss beach was stunning. Hope to visit again. Host was very welcoming and on hand if we had any queries . Thank you we had a great week.

    Thank you for your kind comments, we are delighted you enjoyed the house, pool and exploring the local area. We look forward to welcoming again in the future. Property Owner

The property

Wick 3.7 miles.

Tucked away on the outskirts of the quaint village of Reiss rests this remarkable pebble dashed farmhouse, Nordwall Farm.

Idyllically positioned within close proximity to both the coast and country of the Highlands of Scotland, Nordwall Farm is a lovely base for a group adventure.

Follow the private driveway through the tranquil grounds and park up at the foot of this marvellous dwelling, kicking off your shoes as you climb a handful of stairs over the threshold and into the hallway space.

Follow the corridor through to the handy utility, fit with a washing machine and tumble dryer, to refresh your wardrobe before entering into the stylish kitchen/diner, tucked away at the rear of the property, and make use of all of the modern amenities provided to prepare a heart-warming meal as your guests recount the days adventures over a bottle of wine at the dining table.

If you're lucky enough to experience the warmer weather take the celebrations outdoors with a spot of alfresco dining on the decking, soaking in the scenic sights across the picturesque countryside that encompasses the property as you toast a glass of fizz to an unforgettable holiday, or if you'd prefer, work off some adrenalin with a leisurely dip in the swimming pool.

Escape the excitement and venture upstairs to enjoy a moment of peace in front of the television in the spacious sitting room, flooded with natural light and framing views across the farmland through the towering aspect window, or soak in the last of the evening sun with a sociable seat in the sun room.

When sleep calls, you're spoilt for choice with four sumptuous double bedrooms to choose from, one thoughtfully laid-out on the ground-floor alongside a contemporary shower room for your convenience, ideal for guests with limited mobility, with the remaining three nestled on the first floor.

Begin each day in style with a luxurious soak amongst the bubbles in the elegant spa bath fit in the contemporary family bathroom, or make use of the handheld shower for a quick morning rinse.

Get better acquainted with your surroundings and take the short journey to Wick where you'll find an 18-hole golf course & Reiss Sands Beach which are a 4 minute drive away .

There are an array of handy amenities including a fabulous selection of shops, pubs and eateries, ideal for night on the town; soak in the sights of the coast with a thrilling powerboat ride, explore the fascinating exhibitions on display at The Wick Heritage Museum or a leisurely stroll around Wick Harbour as you indulge in a portion of fish and chips.

Join the North Coast 500 as it passes nearby, regarded as the ultimate road trip, with a route stretching over 500 miles of stunning coastal scenery around the north coast of Scotland, making sure to stop at John O' Groats en route for an obligatory photograph with the iconic signpost, marking the northernmost point of mainland Great Britain.

Pack up your essentials and spend a fun-filled day out visiting the seaside town of Thurso, where thrill-seekers can tackle some of the best waves in the UK with a session of surfing, or if you'd prefer to stay on land, discover the historic remains of Thurso Castle, dating back to the 19th century, or follow the Victoria Walk atop the dramatic cliffs, offering panoramic views across the tranquil waters.

Whisk your loved ones away on a rural retreat with a stay at Nordwall Farm.
