Overview

John o' Groats Farmhouse Rental Photos and Description

4-Bedroom Farmhouse, Sleeps up to 8 people, Families, John o'Groats, Caithness

Situated within walking distance from the globally famous John o’Groats (the end of the road), the Ha Farmhouse is one of the most North Eastern self-catering accommodation available in the UK. The house sleeps up to 8 people and is available all year round.

The traditional farmhouse situated on a working farm has been in the Cowe family for over three generations. Having been recently re-furbished the house offers a high quality accommodation with a very clean, modern and exquisite look which we are sure you will love.

The large fully fitted kitchen is well equipped with, dish washer, fridge and electric range cooker. The dining table seats 8 people and French doors open out onto the patio area for enjoying a barbecue on a mild summer’s evening.

One double bedroom is located downstairs while the other two along with the twin room is upstairs. All have newly fitted carpets, modern décor and we are sure you will have a comfortable night’s sleep.

What’s Included: Heating, electricity, bed linen, towels and household cleaning products. Our welcome pack contains fresh bread, milk, butter, tea, coffee, sugar and selection packs of biscuits. Also awaiting our guests will be a bottle of red or white wine along with a selection box of chocolates. What better way to relax after making your journey to John o'Groats!

Directions: From Wick take the A99 north and continue to John o’Groats, on entering the village and passing the Post Office take the first on your left A836 to Thurso (directly opposite the Seaview Hotel). The Ha Farmhouse is directly facing you and driveway entrance is the first on your right (second driveway).

From Thurso take the A836 to John o’Groats, pass by Gills, Canisbay and Huna. We are on the left just before the Seaview Hotel.

A Bit More About The Area: Why not use the private foot path down to the beach and enjoy the beautiful views of Stroma and the Orkney Islands. Take a stroll to John o’Groats harbour, book various sea life adventure trips that let you cruise the Pentland Firth, pass rugged cliff scenery and explore the rich coastline. What better way to see Atlantic grey seals, dolphins, puffins, razorbills, kittiwakes and perhaps even one or two killer whales. If your feeling a bit more adventurous why not try the white-water RIB experience adventure, all available on your door step.

A visit to John o’Groats is not complete without exploring the famous Stacks of Duncansby, situated not far from Duncansby Head, where there is also a lighthouse. Here you can explore the area by different walks overlooking the Orkney Islands. There is also a lovely beach called Sannick that is worth a visit and if you’re lucky you might come across some seals basking in the sun while being there.

Absolutely perfect

  • 5 of 5
An amazing house in a beautiful place. Very warm welcome of Catherine and Andrew (the owners). Everything clean, comfortable, spacious and affectionately furnished. We stayed for two weeks in a lovely area, in a lovely house with a lot of sunshine. We can absolutely recommend for anyone.

Our holiday were perfect.

Perfekter Urlaub in wunderschöner Umgebung, bei herrlichem Wetter. Das Haus ist traumhaft, liebevoll eingerichtet, mit allem was das Herz begehrt. Die Eigentümer Catherine & Andrew sind sehr liebe und hilfsbereite Menschen.
Der Weg nach John O´Groats ist weit, aber jeden Kilometer wert. Die Landschaft hat unglaublich viel zu bieten – die Strände sind traumhaft. Diese Unterkunft verdient 5 Sterne und ist absolut weiterzuemphehlen.

Thanks to Catherine and Andrew for two perfect weeks in The HA.

Perfect place for a family holiday

  • 5 of 5
This is an amazing house in a beautiful place.
We stayed here for a week with 4 generations of our family.
We had looked at the pictures and thought this looks nice but The Ha is not nice it is fantastic, the pics really don't do it justice.
It is a very spacious well equipped house where you can easily find a quiet corner if you want to and our 3 year old grandson loved the playroom. The downstairs bedroom and bathrooms made it perfect for my Mam who is disabled and cant do stairs. The owners Andrew and Catherine could not do enough for us they were so friendly helpful and approachable. Caithness is a lovely area with so much to see and we even had sunshine for most of the week. The Castle of Mey, Dunnet Head, Duncansby Stacks, Thurso, Wick, Dunnet Bay beach were all a short easy drive from The Ha and a five minute walk along the coastal path at the bottom of the garden puts you into the harbour at John 'o'Groats, 5 minutes along the road brought us to the pub which does lovely food. The holiday was so relaxing and we will definitely be back.
