Enjoyed the clean well appointed unit. Good service upon our arrival to get us settled in. Not much going on in the area in November so suggest bringing your own food and refreshments. The scenery and walking in this corner of Scotland are fantastic

The apartment was very, very special. The views across to the islands, the warmth of the staff, the quality of all the rooms.....I could keep going. We will be back in the very near future, this time for a longer stay.

Excellent self catering lodges. Beautiful lodges with first class top quality equipment, soft furnishings and fittings. Everything inside is beautiful and clean and perfect for a relaxing stay. All the lodges are located excellently so privacy is guaranteed and the ones with a sea view are positioned well with fantastic outlook. The welcome box with local produce is a lovely...

Stayed at Natural Retreats for our 2 day stay at John O'Groats in a self-catering apartment. Very lovely apartment for two people with a very well equipped kitchen. If there wasn't a lot of sightseeing to do in the area and the towns nearby, I'm convinced that we would have just enjoyed the peace and quiet in our nice apartment...

I so loved it the first time, I had to return - it was even more special the second time around! You must enjoy the outdoors and being exposed to the elements, but a very special getaway and well worth a visit.

This is top end self-catering, but the beauty of it is - it's not top-end prices. Very well appointed accommodation. Someone with artistic vision, style and good sense has been involved in the design of he buildings and the furnishings. And the welcome hamper is just a delight, particularly as it focuses upon local produce. It really has everything. But...

What a place for seclusion and comfort. The decor and fittings were superb at Natural Retreats John O'Groats, so we stayed in, cooked and ate a great meal and watched the moon shine on the sea outside our window. Magic

Absolutely fantastic lodges - stylish, comfortable, spacious. It's a quiet part of the world, especially when we stayed in October, but if you want to get away from it all this is a lovely, relaxing place to stay.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Natural Retreats John O'Groats is located in one of the most beautifully diverse landscapes in Britain, combining awe-inspiring costal stacks with dramatic clefts bitten deeply into the cliffs, community managed forest with white sandy beaches and Orca & Minkie Whale watching alongside the largest population of Harbour and Grey seals in the UK. Blessed with such natural beauty, there are an immense and varied range of activities you can take advantage of while on holiday in the Highlands. There's an abundance of natural and historical points of interest just a short walk away from the Retreat, including the famous coastal walk from John O'Groats to Dunnet Head, the true most northerly point, plus miles and miles of exhilarating walks across the diverse terrain offered in the area. ... more   less
