“Pastoral Escape in Caithness”
Reviewed May 5, 2014 for a stay in April 2014

On the recommendation of the owner, we stayed in their North Yarrows Cottage, as the Garden Apartment was already booked. The North Yarrows Cottage, the alternate self-catered accommodation at the Thrumster Estate, was fantastic for children, with lots of space inside its lovely thick comforting walls. A sheep paddock outside the front door added to the thrill for the kids. The decor and kitchen was a little dated, but certainly sufficient. A great place to escape in Caithness.

“Excellent place to stay”

Stayed here for 7 weeks whilst working in Wick. Excellent location, only a few mins drive from Wick. It is also within walking distance to the local pub which is worth a visit.

'Garden Apartment' is attached to Thrumster house which has large grounds which you are allowed to explore.

The house itself was very spacious and had everything you need in it, including essentials like washing up liquid, washing powder, spare light bulbs, cooking basics etc.

It was myself and another lass staying in the house which gave us more than enough room. Easily could have another couple of people there too.

Little stove in living room makes it very homely and big comfortable sofas/arm chairs to relax on. Large tv with good range of channels, dvd player and some dvds and books. Wi-fi throughout the house. Virtually no phone signal though.

Would recommend bringing slippers. Can sometimes get a little cold in winter.
Kitchen is large and well equipped. Lots of pots, pans, plates and utensils. Basics like oil, salt, pepper, spices etc were all there.

Bedrooms were lovely, nicely decorated with plenty of extra blankets etc.
2 toilets were very handy. Bathroom good size with bath/shower. There was plenty of nice towels.

Owners were extremely helpful and seemed to be always available to tell you about local area, give directions, answer any questions.

Beautiful location, lots of places to walk and visit near by.
