Berriedale Beach House

3 bedroom dog-friendly beach house in Berriedale on the Langwell and Braemore Estate in Caithness, Scotland.

Berriedale Beach House is an immaculate end-terrace cottage about 9 miles north of Helmsdale in Caithness. 

High on the hillside above the cottage, you will notice two crenellated towers called the Duke’s Candlesticks, named after the Duke of Portland. Thought to date back to the mid-19th century, the towers were navigation beacons used to guide in the fishing boats.

On the most North-Eastern part of the North Coast 500 Scenic Route, Berriedale is a small fishing village on the East coast of Caithness and is the most Southern village in the county before crossing into Sutherland.

There is a large sitting room with a wood-burning stove and wide-screen TV and the farmhouse-style kitchen has plenty of room for dining. Downstairs there is also a small bedroom and WC. Upstairs, are two further bedrooms (a double and a twin/double) with a particularly spacious bathroom with a separate shower, and magnificent views over the burn.

The house is fully insulated and double glazed, with central heating, that is supplemented by the wood-burning stove, ensuring that it is kept cosy whatever the weather!

This is just the place for a family holiday. Children will enjoy playing for hours in the burn (though care should, of course, be taken both here and at the nearby harbour) while adults can relax in the little garden and enjoy the sea views, or make their way across to the shingle beach. There are two little towers (known as the Duke's Candlesticks) on the top of the hill above the cove, which would make a good destination for an evening stroll.

Spend a day relaxing on the shingle beach and if you are lucky enough you may even see the local wildlife, including sea otters, dolphins and seals as they frequently pass.  For further information and to book a stay, visit the Unique Cottages website.
