Private parking for 2 cars. No smoking.\n\n Set in its own grounds Farr provides peace and seclusion coupled with incredible sea views. The front door leads into a small entrance hall with large picture windows and a comfortable sofa - an ideal spot to watch the ever-changing seascapes below. The living room has a warm welcoming open fire as well as a folding dining table seating up to six. The kitchen at the rear of the cottage is small but well-equipped complete with modern units. There are two bedrooms one with a double bed and the second with twin beds. The garden at the front of the cottage is fully enclosed and is mainly laid to lawn with mature shrubs and flower border and the land at the rear goes straight up onto open hillside. Deer graze nearby and are likely to be inquisitive visitors at the window The cottage has been owned by the same family for generations and the current owners have modernised and improved the accommodation in recent years now providing a warm cosy and secluded base in which to relax and to explore the best of this stunning Highland area.\n\nJust a mile away is Helmsdale village and the renowned North Coast 500 route which encompasses some of the most amazing and inspiring landscapes to be found anywhere in the British Isles. Helmsdale has a small thriving harbour with brightly coloured cottages straddling the shoreline. Here you will also find a good selection of local shops and restaurants as well as a fascinating museum detailing the area’s rich and varied past including a famous 19th century gold rush. Visitors can still pan for gold a few miles outside the village but make sure you stake your claim in the box provided. There is a lovely coastal walk which is renowned for its fossils and archaeological artefacts. Fishermen still fish for lobster crabs and clams along this coastline and visitors can sometimes purchase fresh local shellfish direct from the boats. Seals otters and a wide variety of seabirds can also be spotted close by. Golfers are spoilt for choice with a number of championship traditional links courses within a short drive including Brora and Royal Dornoch. Fishing cycling hill walking kayaking and surfing are all enjoyed locally. This region is also renowned for its magnificent unspoilt beaches with a pebble beach just 1 mile away wild rugged coastline historic castles and traditional fishing villages. Beach 12 miles. Shop pub and restaurant 1 mile. " https://img.chooseacottage.co.uk/Property/106/840/10671252.jpg UK5977

    The cottage was so damp that I had to wrap a towel around my pillow in order to sleep. The Bathroom looked disgusting with mould on all the tiles and across the window ledge. We cut short our holiday (returning home Wednesday instead of Saturday) as we wanted to stay no longer. It is billed as pet friendly but note asks you to exercise your dog outside the garden (where there is nowhere to go but a single lane track). We would have liked to start a coal fire and a note told us coal was in the outhouse but this was padlocked, and we didn't have a key. Cooker extractor fan didn't work so when we cooked breakfast, the smoke alarm was activated.

    Wow just wow. To be honest was not sure when I booked it but it was an excellent choice. My Wife and I are both busy hard working people and needed a good place to relax and escape the world for a week FARR COTTAGE is the place to be. The dog loved it to and we will be back. Only issue we had was the place needs so harder cushions for the bed.
