Set in a quiet spot just outside the Highland village of Strathpeffer, Hawthorn Cottage sleeps 6 people across two doubles and one twin bedroom, making it a delightful property that suits couples and families alike. Located just a short distance from the NC500 route that runs past Garve on the A835, the cottage is ideal for those looking for a base whilst they explore this scenic route around Scotland.

From the moment you step in the door, Hawthorn Cottage feels homely and welcoming. The sitting room is wonderfully cosy, making it the perfect place to put your feet up after a busy day out. The modern kitchen/dining area is very user-friendly, and contains all of the essentials you will need during your stay. The kitchen door leads out to the garden patio area, where you can enjoy eating your breakfast alfresco on those sunny Summer mornings. The room you are sure to spend most of your time in is the conservatory at the front of the house, where you can get stuck into a good book or simply enjoy the peace and quiet as you watch the birds pottering around in the garden. Each of the bedrooms have been tastefully furnished and decorated, with countryside views from each of the windows. This truly is a home from home – so much so that you won’t want to leave this peaceful retreat!

Strathpeffer – a Victorian spa town which is less than 1 mile away - is home to the Strathpeffer Pavilion, an entertainment venue which hosts music and arts events throughout the year. There is also ‘The Pump Room’, a museum-come-sweet shop, where you can learn about how the Victorians used the Spa. Inverness is just a 30 minute drive away, and you can reach the west coast in around an hour, so day trips are certainly possible to the likes of Ullapool and Gairloch. From Ullapool, you could even get the ferry across to the Isle of Lewis to experience life on the island for a few days – the possibilities are endless! Whatever you plan to do during your stay here, you will always look forward to coming back to Hawthorn Cottage after a full day of exploring.
