Remote 3 Bedroom Detached Cottage - Peaceful Location close to Beach Village
About Tim Pickles
I arrived at this accommodation totally by accident backand simply fell in love with the area and views.
Tim Pickles purchased this Cottage in 2007
Why Tim Pickles chose Helmsdale
Originally intended to move into the cottage with my partner fell in love with the Countryside and Beaches, stunning and unspoilt and had been Looking at Sea View for 12 months prior to Buying. The off putting factor been the substantial costing required to restore to the current condition. Eventually the cottages appeal location and Views got the better so went for it, price agreed and after 6 months of hard work and the budget well exceeded, moved in only for work circumstances to change. The cottage has been very popular with many repeat bookings ever since
