Immediately when stepping through the door it felt like home - cosy and with everything you would need for a longer stay - we only had two nights :-(.
The owners got immediately back to me when booking, and it was on rather short notice, so that was much appreciated. The top floor bedroom is the best - you can see the sea from there! Kitchen is really well equipped and there were even eggs, milk and butties left there for our arrival - a nice touch! Parking was right in front of the house and in less than half a minute one can walk to the harbour. Would love to be back and can't wait for the opportunity for another short break.
We loved the sea thistle cottage. We were visiting due to a family bereavement and thought the cottage was lovely. Very comfortable, lovely patio and very cosy. Our only issue was that we didn't realise the road to the village was closed due to a landslide therefore parking and carrying luggage to and from the car was not ideal. We know this is out with your control but notification would have helped. We loved the cottage and when visiting family in the future would definitely stay again. Also was one of the few cottages we looked at that was for less than 7 nights which is ideal when only visiting for a few days. Thanks again
The location and layout of the cottage was perfect for our family visit and the area and local pub were amazing.
The communication was great and our early check in was accommodated with no fuss. We did feel that the bathroom could do with updating and did need cleaning (specifically the toilet) prior to use which was a little disappointing. There was a slug issue in the kitchen and each morning there were slug trails on the floor and worktop which meant that we had a bit of a cleaning routine in the mornings before breakfast. One night my wife got up for a glass of water and collected and disposed of 9 slugs from the kitchen floor and side. The heating also stopped working during the stay. We only used the cottage for a base and were out most of the time so was ok for our needs.
This was a wee gem, in a gorgeous part of Scotland! We had a lovely time, the cottage was so cozy and beautiful decor - a treat! Oh, not to forget, very reasonably priced! The lack of TV and mobile reception, whilst anxiety provoking, was actually lovely - we spent more time playing games, exploring the village and talking! Would definitely recommend to everyone and anyone! A wee bonus was the lovely neighbour (and pops of the owners), who was chatty, helpful and introduced us to his friendly blackbird! Can't wait to visit again!
This is a lovely cottage in a simply stunning location. All facilities are provided and the property is presented in immaculate condition.
The Wi-Fi is better than we'd expected but the addition of working TV channels e.g. SKY for keeping up with news e.t.c from the outside world would make a big difference. The TV is used for showing DVD's of which there is a decent selection.
The village is served with a restaurant and bar which, unfortunately closed for our visit, does have a good reputation for food.
This is a stunning part of Scotland to which we would gladly return and we would most definitely stay at Sea Thistle again.
