Dog friendly holiday house near Thurso sleeping 11 with a hot tub and games room for family holidays and get aways with friends

Holiday Rental for Groups of Families and Friends.
The Herdsman's House, Thurso, Caithness, Scotland, sleeps 2-11 in 5 bedrooms.

The Herdsman's House is situated on Geiselittle Farm - a working farm with beef cattle and sheep owned by the Sutherland Family who have farmed in this area for 3 generations. Having owned the farm next door since the 1950's, they recently bought Geiselittle Farm and renovated the historic farmhouse to provide luxury holiday accommodation in northern Scotland. This holiday house is ideal for family get togethers and your dog is welcome too.

With views of undisturbed farmland looking out towards the town of Thurso and the beautiful banks of the winding river Thurso as it heads towards the coast, the house offers a peaceful rural getaway, whilst only being 2 miles from all the amenities of the town.

The house itself has retained some original feature fireplaces in the living areas and dining room, whilst having been modernised to accommodate modern family living. There is a large open plan kitchen and living space, dining room, a cosy lounge and a games room as communal spaces to congregate. The large bedrooms are spaced over 3 floors with 4 kingsize beds (one with additional sofa bed) and a triple room with 3 single beds, perfect for children. There are 4 bathrooms in the property - one en suite and the others situated between bedrooms with easy access.

The house looks on to a majestic walled garden which is enclosed and safe for children to play, with a swing set too. There is outside seating to dine al fresco and a hot tub in a private corner of the garden.

Facilities

2 fan ovens, large fridge-freezer, ceramic 5 ring hob, dishwasher, kettle, toaster, pots, pans, baking trays and dishes, cutlery.
Solid oak dining table to seat 12, table mats and coasters supplied. Feature fireplace.
There are 2 sitting areas - one open plan to the kitchen with feature range (not in use), and a cosy lounge with working log-burner.
There is a smart TV in each of the sitting areas.
Free WiFi is available throughout the property. Due to the rural location, the speed may be slower than you are used to.
There is a games room with pool table. We have also left an assortment of toys for younger children.
There is oil central heating which is set to come on at colder times of day and also a fire if you wish to use it.
There are 4 kingsize bedrooms (one with additional sofa bed) and a triple room with 3 single beds. There is plenty of floor space for additional beds.
All linen is provided, towels for showering and additional towels for the hot tub. We do not supply robes, feel free to bring your own.
1 en suite with bath and shower, 1 shower room with WC, 1 family bathroom with bath and shower, 1 bathroom with bath and WC only.
Due to the driveway being a stony surface, and steps up into the property, we are not disabled friendly. However there is a ground floor bedroom.
There is a large private garden which can be enclosed, with a swing set. There are children's toys, books and board games in the house.
There is an outside dining table and chairs in the garden, and a hot tub in a private corner.
There is no pool, but there is a hot tub.
There is a large parking area to the rear of the property.
No smoking please.
We do allow dogs to stay in the house.
