Escape to The Highlands at this beautiful cottage in Wick, Caithness. This fabulous family home is ideal for those looking for a mixture of coastal and countryside adventures. Sleeping eight in four plush bedrooms, it is perfect for groups of friends and families alongside four of their canine companions. After long days exploring the Highland countryside, enjoy a sumptuous soak in the hot tub, unwind in the pretty garden or warm through with a lovely lay down in front of the wood burner.

Whilst this property has every modern appliance you should need, its interiors maintain a characterful feel thanks to the dark woods, tartan carpets and traditional pictures throughout. The cleverly designed layout maximises privacy, with two of the bedrooms located on the ground floor, and should you want to come back together, the home's social spaces boast cosiness and style for long-lasting comfort.

Step into this wonderful home and slip off waterproofs and walking boots before heading into the stylish lounge. This enticing space offers guests the chance to put their feet up in front of the inviting wood burner, stream their favourite film on the TV or simply catch up with loved ones with a glass of something fizzy.

Continue down the hall to discover the luxury fitted kitchen. This chef's dream is kitted out with all the necessary equipment needed to produce mouthwatering meals using the freshly caught seafood you bought during the day. Share this meal around the adjoining table, and after you've cleared away, use the space to play some board games provided in the cottage. Continuing along the ground floor are two of the four bedrooms in the property, with a shared shower room and a useful utility space for running through damp towels in the washing machine and dryer.

Heading upstairs, guests will find two more elegantly dressed bedrooms, both of which have their own en-suite facilities to avoid those morning queues. Settle in for a good night's sleep and wake up refreshed and ready to explore your surroundings.

Outside, your garden space has a lovely area to sit out while you're sipping your morning coffee and the children run around the lawn. Be sure to dine alfresco throughout the summer months or soak in your hot tub while breathing in the fresh Scottish air. It also has a storage unit for keeping your bikes, golf clubs and other sporting equipment and parking for three cars.

Stroll straight outside your holiday accommodation and find a multitude of walking trails and cycling routes, which we're sure the exercise fanatics will adore. After sampling one of the various magnificent trails of the area, stop for a bite to eat in the nearby town of Wick (1 mile), where visitors can choose from pub grub, fish and chips, French cuisine and much more. While you're here, take a look back at Wick's fascinating history with links to the Viking era in a time when it was an important trading post.

If you prefer escaping to the seaside, then the Caithness coastline is a must-see. Go surfing at Thurso East (21.5 miles), a world-famous reef break, or celebrate the 'end-to-enders' at John o' Groats (17 miles) or Dunnet Head (20 miles). Although less mountainous than the rest of the Highlands, this glorious coastline is known for its rugged beauty and many scenic highlights to explore. You can also pick up the North Coast 500 route from here, which brings together remote fishing villages, white sandy beaches and breathtaking scenery.

We had an absolutely wonderful time at the cottage which had everything we needed. It had loads of space in lovely large rooms and was very warm and cozy. Anne was excellent in communicating with us before and during our stay to ensure we enjoyed our visit. We would have no hesitation in staying at the cottage again if we revisit the area.

A wonderful place to stay whilst in Wick. The gardens were ideal for the dogs with a huge park just across the road. Loved the story regarding the history of Thistle Cottage.

A beautiful cottage, lots of character and all the comforts of home. A very nice welcome pack with lovely fresh bread, sparkling wine, chocolates and treats for our dogs! The large garden was fully enclosed for the dogs so we could relax and enjoy the hot tub. An excellent base for exploring the highlands. Would thoroughly recommend.
