Customer Reviews of Wilkys Holiday Cottage near Helmsdale - Sleeps 6

“Lovely cottage, very comfortable and great location for us. Highly recommended.”
Mr Shannahan, Lightwater, March 2017

“Great cottage for what was looking for. Was a great a base for fishing trip. Had everything that was needed.”
Mrs Bird, Broxburn, January 2017

“The cottage layout has been setup in such a fine way that even as a wheel chair user I was able to access most of the downstairs especially the bathroom with relative ease, whether the owners had this in mind I don't know but apart from the narrow entry doors which required exiting the chair till you get through them the place is very good to get around many thanks to the Wilkinsons for having us pity the Aurora let us down --- maybe next time! Its a very picturesque setting and if like myself you like trains they are as close as you can get, the heating was more than enough and the open fire very warm -- all in all a very pleasurable stay.”
Mr Nolan, Runcorn, September 2016

“Wilkys is a spacious, comfortable and well appointed cottage in a small hamlet on the side of a picturesque glen. The neighbours were very friendly and a fountain of local knowledge. It is an ideal spot from which to travel out to discover Caithness and Sutherland. For those who "can't get away from it all" there is Broadband/WiFi at the cottage.”
Mr Cage, Widnes, January 2016

“The property was out of the village and had fantastic views of the surrounding hills. A huge contrast to our normal life, gave the ability to instantly relax, we came back feeling we achieved our aim, relaxed and refreshed! I would recommend anyone to have a look at this cottage, either for a few days or a week. The open fire in the living room was a great bonus.”
Mr Ferguson, South Croydon, October 2015
