“Spectacular and spooky views from this wind swept and scenic cottage!”

Reviewed 16 Jan 2017

This cottage sells itself on the fabulous location! It is basic, but has all the essentials! Given the gale force wind and wintery weather during our stay, we were very warm and there was plenty of hot water! The fire provided additional heat which we had to use when the heating broke, but, don't worry, a sterling response from the owner and local engineer meant we were back up within 3hrs of reporting the problem - no complaints from us! My only real problem is that I think it is a bit of a squeeze for 6 if you aren't able to utilise the balcony. Also no internet service despite the wi-fi presence was disappointing, but owner was between providers at this time. Would love to revisit in the summer as beach was very inviting. Recommend 'Wicker's World' café near Wick harbour (wholesome and generous portions!) and the Wick Museum. Can also recommend high end meal option at The Mackays Hotel - even catered for vegans!

Owner's reply: After switching from BT £40 per month for a dreadfully poor service, we switched to PlusNet (£17 per month) from 4th November.. Despite four attempts a router still, as of today, hasn't arrived!!!! First because sending a router to a holiday cottage address doesn't work, then the computer shop on bridge street had moved 4 doors down but the Plusnet database only allows house numbers not the name of the shop i.e. North os Scotland Computer, Bridge Street, Wick and now yet another week waiting for the promised 4th attempt to succeed. And NHS Digital still think that everyone's electronic medical record will be reliably and securely accessible from every elderly person's own home!! Such an incredible waste of taxpayers money with no proper evidence of any improvement in care.

“lovely cottage”

Reviewed 15 Oct 2016

had a week here in september weather was great too got to see the sea otters and seals met some lovely people too a big thank you to the local fisherman for the goodies he gave us they were lovely .The cottage was great too so peaceful just what we wanted and will be going back next year for sure Just one thing about the cottage for rupert the owner please if you can get a new thicker mattress for the bed downstairs as im a fat bugger that was my only complaint apart from that would recommend the cottage to everyone just wish i owned it myself as its in a lovely place

Owner's reply: If you remind us then we will definitely get a better mattres before you come back. But we are still paying off the cost of totally rebuilding Sea Shore Cottage after a flood made the original annexe uninhabitable. The good thing about the flood was that it revealed the need to start again from the foundations and totally rebuild the annexe up to modern standards. Incidentally my wife prefers staying in Sea Shore whereas I prefer Sea Otter. Having after many years of failures I had given up trying to loose weight until I read the book called Fast Diet (2 days a week fasting and 5 days eating absolutely anything I felt like) and amazed myself by managing to get my weight down to a far healthier level.

“Amazing weekend retreat, beautiful place and fantastic, quaint cottage we didn't want to leave!!! Cant wait to go back!!”

Reviewed 15 May 2013

This place was totally worth the long drive!! The cottage had everything we needed after stocking up on food and drink supplies from Tesco down the road, we basically did'nt need to leave the cottage!! The fire is grand but use logs rather than coal as it blackens the glass. The owner is always on hand and is very helpful and friendly!! We were made to feel very welcome indeed. Sunsets from the balcony are amazing and the tide literally comes up the balcony wall at high tide!! We saw the northern lights from the balcony as the cottage apparently is in a prime spot away from town lights etc. We done the wild life cruise in wick which is highly recommended we saw loads of sea birds and even Puffins and seals!! There are some great castles and sights to be seen and there are also great fishing spots!! We hope to visit again very soon!!! Thanks again!!

“Sea Otter Cottage is Ackergill Heaven”

Reviewed 21 Jan 2013

I flew from Birmingham to Wick, leaving 9am and arriving 12 midday. Sea Otter Cottage is just a few minutes' drive from Wick airport and there's a local car rental place. Plenty of room for parking at the Cottage. Lovely and warm inside - you really wouldn't mind if there were a howling gale or thick snow. Just nice to enjoy a quiet break. The kitchen is spacious; the view through the window across to Ackergill Tower makes washing up a pleasure rather than a chore! There's a clock on the living room wall that shows the times of the high and low tide - though the tides can clearly be seen while sitting on the sofa anyway. I made one excursion to Thurso and then visited Dunnet Head to see the most northerly point of the British mainland (I think John O'Groats is all hype and just a big car park with nothing to recommend it at all). Most of the rest of my 3-day stay I just wandered around the beach and surroundings of the Cottage taking photographs. It was all very relaxing. Sea views were even more spectacular in real life than in any of the publicity. While much of the English Midlands was gripped in a freeze with snow, etc., I had the most glorious sunny weather throughout the majority of my stay. Even when it did get cloudy, it was romantic and atmospheric, rather than dull and miserable. Like something out of a movie. Shopping etc. - Tesco is a mile or so away. There's also a remarkably good Lidl on the other side of Wick. I didn't get a chance to visit the Old Pulteney Distillery, but on another visit (and I plan to come back with friends) will definitely go there. The Alexander Bain (Wetherspoons) in Wick town centre has a good selection of real ales at cheap prices, including one from Orkney that was rather nice.

“Breathtaking views across Sinclair Bay, cosy, comfortable cottage in quiet location.”

Reviewed 10 Jan 2013

Sea Otter Cottage is located on the shore of Sinclair Bay with breathtaking views. It is in a quiet, peaceful, secluded location about 2 miles from Wick where there is aTesco superstore, good pubs and restaurants, coffee bars and shops. We were a family of four with two teenage children and found the cottage to be well equipped and comfortable and was an excellent base to explore Caithness and Orkney. We particularly liked that we could walk down a few steps from the garden onto the secluded beach. The children particularly liked having wi-fi so they could keep in touch with their friends. We enjoyed it so much that we stayed twice in 2012 and have booked again for 2013.
