Holiday Cottages In Helmsdale To Rent

Helmsdale is a small village on the east coast of the Scottish Highlands. This picturesque spot is perfect for enjoying a remote cottage holiday. You’ll be treated to stunning Highland scenery, fresh air, and views over the North Sea.

Once a thriving fishing village, Helmsdale is a pretty and relaxing place to stay. There is a golf course on the outskirts of the village and plenty of local history; the Timespan Heritage Centre explains what life used to be like in Helmsdale. You can cook up a storm in your self-catering cottage, but if you do fancy eating out there are a number of pubs and cafes to choose from. Of course, with the Highlands at your doorstep, there is plenty of walking to enjoy too.

What our customers are saying about our Holiday Cottages In Helmsdale To Rent.

George - verified booking

"The cottage is in a lovely area of the Highlands and is reached via a restricted access road, which sounds bad but isn't really a problem. On reaching the cottage we noticed that the owners have it on the sales market and it's surrounds looked in need of a wee tidy up and a bit of TLC. There is another cottage being built next door to S24337 but the whole week we were there we never encountered any builders so there was no building noise going on.The views are beautiful and very picturesque and It's only a mile walk to the beach so the dog got all the exercise she needed every morning. The entrance was clean and the bedrooms were clean in the main. However the master bedroom on-suite bin was full of ladies used sanitary products from a previous renter.The smell of smoke when the lounge door was opened was strong. It had a wood burning fire the door seals of which no longer work so when it's used the smoke escapes into the room. We were told the first stack of logs were to be supplied free but the basket was empty and the burner had not been cleaned out and was full of ashes. Logs can easily be purchased locally so it's not an issue if you want to use the burner.The kitchen was clean and the dishes, glasses etc were clean and tidied away. The kitchen has a professional cooker which is easy to operate. The microwave rotating plate had not been cleaned and had remains of spilled food sticking to it. Usually when we book cottages we find the fridge/freezer cleaned out but this time although the fridge was empty the freezer had previous renters left-over frozen food still in the drawers.None of the issues I mentioned were show stoppers and prevented us enjoying our holiday and we would go back to this area, as we have on previous cottage holidays. However I don't think S24337 cottage would be one that we would rent again."

"Although I can sometimes be a little too critical on reviews it has to be acknowledged that this is the best ever self catering accommodation we have ever stayed in. From its outstanding location perched on the hillside overlooking the bay and hills to the facilities and amenities within the cottage we could not find fault. The property itself is very spacious with good sized rooms throughout and well designed. It has all the equipment and more to ensure an excellent stay and make it the perfect home from home. The little things like the ornaments,artefacts and paintings make for a homely feel whilst relaxing .... nothing better than looking out over the bay from the patio doors with a glass in hand.The cottages location gives good access to tour the local area,South to Dornoch and Dunrobin castle,North to John o Groats and Wick and even further afield to Durness and cape wrath are all within reach.We both thoroughly enjoyed our week away at this cottage as did our dog who was able to roam freely in the large fenced in secure garden. We were also fortunate with the weather so had no complaints at all . The village of Helmsdale is about a twenty minute walk away along the main road and our only slight disappointment was that the village itself did not have a lot to offer.However in summary this is a property which is well worth considering if you are looking for a relaxing break in excellent,clean ,well cared for and spacious accommodation and we will certainly consider using it again in the future...To be recommended"

"Thank you for the flowers and milk – a lovely gesture on arrival.Whilst we had a perfectly pleasant stay, please see below some feedback for you:The kettle spills every time it is poured.The double bed above the kitchen is supremely uncomfortable and we had to leave a day early as my back couldn’t hold up any longer.All the combe ceilings are terribly low – we all repeatedly banged our heads and made standing up upstairs almost impossible. There was no hanging space in the bedroom above the kitchen.The heating was erratic – either too hot or too cold.All sofas were extremely uncomfortable – the green one groaned every time it was used! The sitting rooms were packed with ‘stuff’ and felt very dark, damp and unwelcoming. The lighting in the sitting rooms was terrible – it made reading almost impossible.The bedside lamps in the bedroom could really do to be bigger or have brighter bulbs in them.The kitchen tap constantly dripped.The ensuite hot tap did not run or produced a mere trickle of water. The lawn and patio area were both full of weeks and needed some attention. There was no dryer but the washing line was across the road in a very unkempt field and therefore not accessible. All outdoor space was incredibly untidy and unsightly.The towels, while there was lots of them, were extremely thin and non absorbent."

"From the moment we reached the gates of S80476 we all drew in our breaths, and our dog, Rosie, started to whimper desperately to explore the garden. What a magical place on a hilltop in Navidale! Unforgettable scenery that seems to float to infinity. We didn’t see the dolphins that many previous tenants have had the privilege to encounter, which was a little disappointing, but this did not ruin our enjoyment. S80476 is a peaceful, tranquil place where you really can get away from it all. Sitting on the bench in the front garden and staring out to sea was so relaxing and a sight appreciated by our Rosie, too. It was her daily ritual with the French doors open, a soft breeze blowing in through the lounge. She absolutely loved it. S80476 had everything to offer in the way of quiet, peace, beauty, relaxation, entertainment and was well-stocked with household items needed for daily use. The cottage is well kept, clean and in a perfect location. Our thanks to Frank for all his advice before we arrived and his approachable manner if we needed anything during our stay. Five stars!"

Stephanie - verified booking

"S22878 is a very special place. If you are looking for spectacular views, in a comfortable warm and tastefully decorated home along with a great kitchen to cook in, then look no further.In a world that can seem too fast where there is little peace here up a hill in Helmsdale I find the quiet I long for. We love this place so much that we are already planning to come back in the spring, ideally for a fortnight. We added up we have been coming here for around 10 years now. Much of our time is spent looking out across the ever changing sea, reading books or on a clear night looking up at the stars that seem to shine so brightly here. There are also great beach walks where we often see seals and other wildlife but hardly any humans, a rare thing these days. There are lovely restaurants in nearby towns and fun things to do if you want to do them.However if you are looking for a holiday with great mobile phone coverage, super fast broadband and top michelin starred restaurants, this is not the place for you."
