Thurso Bay Holidays
Reviewed April 14, 2013

Caravan was spotlessly clean, but what really made the difference were the added extras - tea & coffee, cleaning materials, DVDs, even hot water bottles! The owner couldn't have been more helpful - greeted us on arrival and always available if required. There are plenty of local shops (Lidl is literally across the road from the site) so no need to take food etc. Kids play park adjacent to the site, and miles of stunning coastline to explore. Highly recommended.

We have used Thurso Bay Holidays for the past 2 years when visiting Thurso, Scotland. We usually stay about a week to 10 days. Deposit payment was simple online and balance due on arrival was smooth. Unit was clean and everything worked as it should. We had great views of the ocean and Dunnets Head and the Orkneys. Condiments were already there. A 10 minute walk to a small grocery store and we had food. A 10 minute drive took us to a Tesco and/or another cut rate grocery or the laundry. A 15 minute walk takes you to downtown pubs, restaurants and the local museum where wifi is available. The owner comes by the day you check in to make sure everything is good and you never see her again. If you have problems, she is only a phone call away. She lives close by so she can be there in a flash.

Room Tip: All of her caravans are well kept and in good order.

Caravan was clean on arrival with everything we needed. Before our visit we requested photos of the caravan we were to stay in, for our autistic daughter, which we got and helped to settle her before the trip. The owners were very welcoming and friendly and made sure we were happy with everything. Location very near to beach and town centre, views were beautiful. Perfect accommodation for a family to come and go as you please and have your own space and privacy. TV/DVD player and microwave in caravan which was great with young children. Will definitely stay again when we go back to Thurso.

We spent an enjoyable, comfortable week in one of the static Caravans, and are returning for Easter this year. The Caravan was great, had everything we needed, we cooked in it and all the utensils, etc required was there. It was spotlessly clean, and everything was in good condition. The view was spectacular, great facilities on the site, and within walking distance of the town centre. We really recommend this for a great holiday/werkend
