“Great escape to John O'Groats”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 12, 2012

In looking for a short break destination this summer we stumbled across 'Natural Retreats'. We were looking for something on the North coast of Scotland and Natural Retreats new lodges definitely appeared to fit the bill.

We were amongst the first guests to use the facilities and have to say I was impressed, by both the facilities but also importantly the attentiveness of the Natural Retreats team on site. There were a number of nice touches including arriving to a welcome hamper that included a range of local produce.

The lodges are finished to a very high standard and include a range of high quality equipment that really pampers guests. We loved being able to open up the floor to ceiling windows to deliver an outdoor / indoor feeling that allows you to fully appreciate your environment and the views across the North Sea.

This was the first kind of trip we'd done as a family and would definitely recommend Natural Retreats John O'Groats to others.

Room Tip: Our lodge had three double bedrooms.
