The cottage is minutes from the ferry at Gills Bay. Tracey met us and told us about the cottage and St Margaret's Hope. There is a double bed with a single fold down bed available upstairs and a double sofa bed downstairs. The cottage has all amenities needed aswell as wi fi. Robertsons bar and restaurant is a few minutes away with a good selection of coffee and alcoholic drinks. We never tried the food but it looked good. The chip van stops right outside the house on a Saturday night. A lovely weekend away.
Such a lovely house , everything you need.
Books / dvds/ board games 3 tv's.across 3 rooms.
Family of six and two dogs visiting.
On main road BUT very little road noise.
Shop next door very handy . Larder had the necessities left by previous guests and us, e.g salt , oil , fairy liquid soap powder etc.
Washing machine great but programs seem very long ,combi dryer but not ideal , to be fare radiators were great and we were there for a week .
Also some essentials in bathroom...we had forgotten loo roll ....
Both toilets ( and shower/bath) on ground floor and both had wee steps to get to them , fine for us , but consider the less firm when making your choice.
Truly felt at home , as many dishes , pots n oans etc as you may need.
Would suggest consideration given to updating couches and matress in main bedroom , whilst functionable just not the comfiest, but again we were there for a week..
There is a gate to back garden if you choose to close it , but front garden is open .
Plenty of dog walking on safe pavements and poo disposal bins readily available..
My children enchanted with several honesty boxes close by for fresh produce , jams ,eggs and even home made tablet.
Decent swing park within very short distance from house ,
Location is IDEAL ten minutes from Wick, 20 mins to Thurso , 30 mins to John o Groats on decent but few single track roads which is no issue bit worth mentioning .
Caretaker was located next door and introduced himself when we were unloading car .
Very good value for money, the owner was very flexible re dates and check in / check out too.
Had a great family holiday and if in same position would most definately return to Watten and the Old School House .
