“Fantastic place to stay!”

This was my 3rd time staying here and it just keeps getting better and better.

This was however the first time I'd taken my fiancé and it was satisfying to see she fell in love with the Place (and Dornoch) as much as I had done in the past. we're already starting to think about when we'll be returning.

The accommodation is excellent and kept to a very high standard. There have been a few improvements such as the dishwasher which turned out to be welcome addition as we were traveling with a group of six.

Fantastic holiday, can't wait to go back again

The cottage was all we hoped for and more, Joan and Jerry had thought of everything, it is fully equiped with everything you need. The pool and sauna met expectations especially for our grandson who couldn't have had a better time. We will be recommending this property and plan to visit again in the future. superb!

“Perfect short break”
Reviewed 28 September 2014 for a stay in September 2014

The house itself was lovely, catering for all needs. The swimming pool was an amazing bonus and the kids would have happily spent all their time there! Location was excellent, 15 minutes walk to the beach or to Dornoch, plenty to do, lovely friendly people. Can't wait to go back!

“Wonderful house in an ideal location.”
Reviewed 11 August 2014 for a stay in July 2014

Made a decision to switch here from the local caravan site which we used the previous year as the small pool would be great for our young grandchildren, especially if the weather was poor. As it turned out is was beach most days but still 2 sessions a day in the pool!
The house was spotlessly clean with a very well equiped kitchen and is extremely comfortable and homely. Wonderfully peaceful and only a 20 min stroll to Dornoch.
Would definately come back again.
