Open the front door and immediately feel welcome
Smart kitchen/dining area. Oven, hob and microwave. Washing machine and drier. Fridge-freezer
Open plan dining table and lounge area
Looking back towards the front door
Now do come on and have a look upstairs
Along the landing.
to get a first glimpse of that wonderful view of the harbour area from the main bedroom
Morning sunshine and a comfy bed. Where's my coffee? Then I'll sit up and be mesmerised by
View of the ever-changing sea and sky.
Then back along the landing to the second bedroom
With two more comfy beds
Dawn sunlight reflected in next door castle windows. (Photo thanks to a recent guest)
Finally the newly-refurbished bathroom with shower
An increasingly popular location you won't forget.  Book now before it's too late.

“Peaceful location by the sea.”
Reviewed January 20, 2014 for a stay in January 2014

This is a prime location to view the ever changing seas and wildlife.
The cottage is very comfortable with a very well equipped kitchen.
Which ever window you look out of the views are amazing. The free WiFi was very much appreciated.
There is ample parking adjacent to the cottage., it is only a short drive from the centre of Wick.

“Stunning location, fantastic clean cosy cottage, helpful welcoming owner.”
Reviewed October 26, 2013 for a stay in October 2013

We couldn't have been made more welcome. The cottage was clean, fresh, well supplied and in one of the most beautiful locations I have seen. The views from the windows were stunning. We saw otters, seals and too many birds to list. Every time you walk around the cottage you are faced with another window and another sea view!. Then the sky or the wind changes and the whole seascape has changed again - Thank you so much for a lovely stay.

“A haven of peace and quiet”
Reviewed August 22, 2013 for a stay in August 2013

We recently stayed for 3 nights at Seashore cottage and had a wonderful time. The location is beautiful and incredibly quiet, the views are exceptional and very relaxing. The cottage itself is lovely and has everything you need for a 'home from home' experience. It is very new and I know the owner has plans to further develop the outside area so that there is a place to sit and enjoy the views. Access to the beach is a bit of a scramble but well worth it. A short distance from the cottage is the stunning Sinclair Bay which really is worth a visit. Wick is a 2 minute drive from the cottage and has all the amenties you need for a good holiday. We can recommend the Lucky 888 chinese takeaway if you can't be bothered to cook. All in all, this is a fabulous place to go if you want some relaxation and you can't beat drifting off to sleep to the sound of the waves!

Working on some ideas for a place outside to make easier to enjoy the sunsets over the castle but without disturbing those in Sea Otter next door. For the present maybe some seats on the grass just outside the fence would do. Will see what is feasible when we come up next week to finish some outstanding work (e.g. Blinds downstairs, shaver socket in bathroom, check on progress repairing winter storm damage to the fence, and see what can be done to make it easier to get to the beach)

“SUPERB STAY”

I found this little gem of a property last minute. I wanted a self catering cottage for the weekend to visit my husband who is working in Wick as it was our first wedding anniversary and I have a dog. I contacted the owner who was one of the nicelt people I have dealt with and spoken to in a long time! He couldnt have been more helpful. When I got to the property on the friday evening and opened the door I was pleasantly surprised. The property has been refurbished and you can smell the newness. The property was immaculate and had everything you could need for a break away. The photographs really do not do it justice inside and outside. The owner is still getting some works done to the outside as there was scaffolding still up, but this did not hinder our views from the property or our stay which was brilliant. Would definately stay here again and would recommend to friends and family. Sea Shore Cottage is a little gem and loved every minute of it.

So glad you enjoyed our wonderful cottage.

Sorry about the scaffolding but we weren't expecting such a persuasive last minute guest. Roof is now finished and scaffolding removed!!

Builders now finished (at last). Roof tiles etc now done (at last). Rubble removed (at last). Blinds due to be installed shortly.

Need accepted for an outside place to full appreciate the view. This is planned but will probably take until spring to achieve

A wonderful experience. The most beautiful breathtaking views. Spectacular sunsets. Our host,Rupert,could not have been more helpful and informative. The cottage was spotlessly clean and very well equipped. An extremely comfortable and cosy place. We would highly recommend Sea Shore Cottage and look forward to a return visit.
