Logs for the wood burner are not provided but can be purchased locally coal not to be used. Cot and high chair available. Telephone - for incoming and emergency calls only. \n\n Large garden with patio area. Off road parking for 2 cars.\n\n Nestled into the countryside surrounded by its own generous gardens and just a stone’s throw from the sea Curlew Croft is a lovely farmhouse that has been extended and upgraded in recent years.  Situated at the end of a short track in an elevated position overlooking the spectacular Sinclair Bay it offers bright modern and well-equipped accommodation for four in a very quiet but accessible location.  The new extension comprises the main open-plan living area.  The spacious lounge has been thoughtfully designed to maximise the stunning seascapes through the large picture windows.  A modern wood-burning stove acts as a warm and welcoming focal point.  A good-sized kitchen dining area adjoins.  There are two attractively presented double bedrooms and a modern family shower-room. The walk-in shower along with other facilities including a ramp to the entrance ensure that the property is accessible to all. The majority of the electricity is provided by solar panels between the months of April and September in an effort to reduce the carbon emissions from the house as much as possible.\nJust a short walk from the cottage lies Keiss harbour the old castle and a 3 mile long beach.  This charming backwater seems untouched by time and there are lovely walks around the headland and along the coastline direct from the property.  " https://img.chooseacottage.co.uk/Property/716/840/716509.jpg CC511171

    Arrived 1st February Spotlessly clean Views from all windows including sea views Enclosed garden for my two dogs Free WiFi Isabelle, the caretaker came to make sure we were ok with everything If you’re looking for somewhere to chill Curlew fits the bill About 7mikes north of Wick and 7 miles south of John o Groats

    Turned up 1 hour earlier than expected. After driving 13 hours without a break to be told you are early. It would be nice to have someone ask how was you trip, did you have a good drive up. Not you are one hour hour early it put a bad taste on our holiday. Very disappointed with the welcome we received, it was hard to judge 700 miles to the exact hour driving

    Fantastic, we wanted a week away in peace & quiet and this was it. Loved waking up to a sea view every morning, and the lady who looks after it next door couldn’t be nicer my daughter loved her. It was a 9*5 hour drive with a few stops for us but it was worth every minute when we got there. Oh the bed in the master bedroom was nice and comfy..thank goodness. We booked to go back next year while we were still there. 😊

    We had a great holiday here. It was a wonderful base for exploring Caithness and the house was really comfortable and homely.

    This was a comfortable, light house in a beautiful location. It was well equipped. Cleanliness was not as good as I have seen in other properties - dirty trap in bathroom basin, dirty tray in oven, sitting room required more thorough cleaning (dirt and crumbs under the cushions), windows could have done with a clean. Also annoying niggles: dripping tap in kitchen (this was mentioned in reviews from 2017!) and odd smell in bathroom (also mentioned previously). The description of the property on the website requires updating - there is no shop in the nearby village. The garden was large and fully enclosed and perfect for the dog. Considerable care had been put into the planting in a windy area near to the sea.

    Curlew Croft was a perfect place to stay. I needed a week of perfect peace, quiet and relaxation, with a chance to explore this beautiful area of Scotland and Curlew Croft was an excellent location.
