Sports & Adventure Activities
The house is very well equipped and very large despite the picture of the front, which doesn't show the extensions at the back. The location is ideal for Sutherland and trips out west as well. The town itself has plenty of shops, pubs, restaurants and even more a short distance away. Only niggle are the beds which are quite hard. Other than that its great value for money.
Our farewell visit to Dornoch
The cottage was very attractive and in the main very comfortable. The double bad was very hard for older bones. The bedroom only had patio doors and therefore it was not possible to have a window open at night, a must for us. The kitchen was way overstocked with china and saucepans leaving restricted space for storing food items. We were disappointed there was no dishwasher but were delighted with the laundry.
This was one of many delightful and enjoyable holidays in Dornoch.
Beautiful, spacious house.
The house was spotless when we arrived. Very roomy, bright and well stocked with everything you could possibly need. A 5 minute walk, if that, will get you into the centre of Dornoch. Great base for exploring the area and further afield. We loved our holiday. Thank you!
We had a brilliant holiday staying at Oatfield, the location was brilliant, the rooms were spacious and clean and bright.
I think there should be more towels and bed linen.
I booked for 6 adults and only 4 sets of towels were left.
Lovely house, great location.
One of the best houses we have stayed in around Dornoch.
Suggest a dishwasher would make it perfect.
Why the review needs to be 100 characters long is a mystery.
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.
