Oatfield is a very spacious property with excellent facilities and in a good location just a short walk from the town centre. It was easy to find, easy to access, and has more than adequate parking and a nice secluded garden. Difficult to fault.
The positive ....
The property is very comfortable and lovely and quiet - a great place to get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life set in the delightful town of Dornoch. It is only a 5 minute walk into the centre of Dornoch from Oatfield where you will find well stocked shops and various places to eat out. We had a meal in the Eagle and it was very good.
The negative ....
No towels are supplied at Oatfield which we had overlooked and found quite unusual - we bought some at the Asda in Tain! A dishwasher would also have been a welcome addition. The code had been change on the keysafe so on arrival we couldn't get in! Fortunately I had the contact phone number and the situation was quickly resolved.
Traveling from the south by car you will turn right off the A9 shortly after crossing the Dornoch Firth Bridge. As you drive into the town there is on the left hand side a large First World War bronze monument of a highland soldier. Two roads lead off to the left from this monument. The first and lower road is Poles Road. Oatfield address is 3 Poles Road, and is the fourth house on the right.
Traveling from the north down the A9, you will be directed down (B9168). As this road comes into Dornoch it becomes Poles Road with Oatfield as 3 Poles Road, on the left near the left. For those with Satnav the postal code is IV25 3HP.
