Situated within walking distance from the globally famous John o’Groats (the end of the road), the Ha Farmhouse is one of the most North Eastern self-catering accommodation available in the UK. The house sleeps up to 8 people and is available all year round.

The large fully fitted kitchen is well equipped with, dish washer, fridge and electric range cooker. The dining table seats 8 people and French doors open out onto the patio area for enjoying a barbecue on a mild summer’s evening.
One double bedroom is located downstairs while the other two along with the twin room is upstairs. All have newly fitted carpets, modern décor and we are sure you will have a comfortable night’s sleep.

Also awaiting our guests will be a bottle of red or white wine along with a selection box of chocolates. What better way to relax after making your journey to John o'Groats!
Directions: From Wick take the A99 north and continue to John o’Groats, on entering the village and passing the Post Office take the first on your left A836 to Thurso (directly opposite the Seaview Hotel). The Ha Farmhouse is directly facing you and driveway entrance is the first on your right (second driveway).
From Thurso take the A836 to John o’Groats, pass by Gills, Canisbay and Huna. We are on the left just before the Seaview Hotel.
A Bit More About The Area: Why not use the private foot path down to the beach and enjoy the beautiful views of Stroma and the Orkney Islands. Take a stroll to John o’Groats harbour, book various sea life adventure trips that let you cruise the Pentland Firth, pass rugged cliff scenery and explore the rich coastline. What better way to see Atlantic grey seals, dolphins, puffins, razorbills, kittiwakes and perhaps even one or two killer whales. If your feeling a bit more adventurous why not try the white-water RIB experience adventure, all available on your door step.
A visit to John o’Groats is not complete without exploring the famous Stacks of Duncansby, situated not far from Duncansby Head, where there is also a lighthouse. Here you can explore the area by different walks overlooking the Orkney Islands. There is also a lovely beach called Sannick that is worth a visit and if you’re lucky you might come across some seals basking in the sun while being there.
We had a great holiday in this farmhouse! It was recommended to us by a family member, and we would recommend it to others.
- plenty of room for a family of 5, lovely big kitchen/dining area and a separate playroom for the kids
- clean & well stocked with everything we needed
- a welcome basket of goodies was provided
- friendly & helpful owners who didn't bat an eyelid when I admitted we'd broken something (sorry!)
- great location, a short walk to the coast & the John O'Groats harbour and excellent beaches within a short drive
- great value in comparison with other cottages we've stayed in.
Only negative point I found: the wifi router was a bit iffy, not all our devices could connect to it.
A good week with lots to do nearby. Beaches, castles, tourist attractions and for adventure, Air Extreme near Gills Bay. It was ideal for our cycling trip to the Orkney Islands too.
The size of the property was perfect for our group of 7. My granddaughter loved playing in the toy room every morning while we cooked breakfast in the large kitchen that was equipped with everything you could need. We enjoyed several meals around the large dinning table with the patio doors open letting in the lovely sea air. Our first few days of our stay we used the sun room to enjoy a glass of wine or two watching the sun go down. The large yet cosy living area was used more towards the end of the week when the weather changed (typical Scotland). The bedrooms were spacious and cosy too. Just a short walk from the John O'Groats sign where you can get the ferry to Orkney and the Sea View Hotel which serves lovely meals where we enjoyed my husbands 60th birthday. The location was also a good starting off point for our days out to Wick, Thurso and the beautiful Dunnet Bay. Overall highly recommended.
Arrived slightly later than planned to find my tesco order had already arrived. The owner had kindly unpacked my shopping and had also put fridge and freezer items away. So kind and helpful! House is stunning with lots of lovely little touches that make the stay even nicer. Huge basket of goodies in the kitchen along with a bottle of wine which after our long drive went down really nicely😋 I would definitely recommend the Ha to everyone and we will hope to get back soon ourselves.
Beautiful holiday home, we were made most welcome - would definitely recommend to my friends and family.
An amazing house in a beautiful place. Very warm welcome of Catherine and Andrew (the owners). Everything clean, comfortable, spacious and affectionately furnished. We stayed for two weeks in a lovely area, in a lovely house with a lot of sunshine. We can absolutely recommend for anyone.
Our holiday were perfect.
Perfekter Urlaub in wunderschöner Umgebung, bei herrlichem Wetter. Das Haus ist traumhaft, liebevoll eingerichtet, mit allem was das Herz begehrt. Die Eigentümer Catherine & Andrew sind sehr liebe und hilfsbereite Menschen.
Der Weg nach John O´Groats ist weit, aber jeden Kilometer wert. Die Landschaft hat unglaublich viel zu bieten – die Strände sind traumhaft. Diese Unterkunft verdient 5 Sterne und ist absolut weiterzuemphehlen.
Thanks to Catherine and Andrew for two perfect weeks in The HA.
