“Clean and well maintaned cottage”
Reviewed July 4, 2016 for a stay in June 2016

Very clean and tidy cottage. Free Wi-Fi. Nice welcome by the owner Gordon Graham. Had everything we needed like a washing machine and drier. Huge tv in the living room with two couches we could relex on. The only thing we kind of missed was some hooks in the hallway to hang our coats.

“Excellent stay in Halkirk”
Reviewed October 28, 2015 for a stay in October 2015

We've stayed in Halkirk six times, and this was the best stay by far. Gordon and Gill made us feel so welcome, and the cottage was truly a home from home, with everything we needed and more. Lovely views too.

Kind regards,

Michele and Ray Eckersley

Beautiful cottage really well equipped and clean, stands in a lovely garden with gorgeous views. The owners Gordon & Gillian were really friendly and helpful. Quiet location great for a relaxing time, good base for exploring the highlands.

“Home from home”
Reviewed June 30, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

Excellent booking responses, minutes rather than hours. All accomplished relatively late and painlessly.

Owners stay in their house at the other end of their immaculate garden and appear to fall over themselves to be helpful.

Tea, coffee, sugar in copious quantities and a pint of fresh milk in the fridge greet you on arrival. Everything was very clean and in excellent repair.

Cooking facilities include a good size fridge, electric cooker, microwave and toaster as well as a kettle in a good sized kitchen.

The living room has adequate seating and a large flat screen TV and DVD player with a selection of DVD's.

Heating is via electric storage heaters (included in the cost) which does mean you need to anticipate the following days heating requirements.

There is no bath but just an electric shower with a shower curtain round two sides and only a shower tray.

I would echo other comments about the double bed in the main bedroom which was not the most comfortable although an effort has clearly been made with a foam mattress topper and could really do with been the next size up. If this had been better it might have rated a 5 overall.

There is free WiFi provided and it performs well for the area.

The views out over the adjacent countryside are good.

We hoped the topper would resolve only a single adverse comment on the mattress. Perhaps we need a new mattress. May move to a king size sometime but not as yet as all the bedding sets are for a double and this is the first comment on size. No comment made when these people left. They would be welcome again.
