Springfield is set in open countryside, just five minutes away from the historic town of Dornoch. Set over two floors, the accommodation occupies a separate wing of the owner’s main house and has its own private entrance doors. It is accessed via a short track that leads directly to the cottage. The main living space is open plan and the spacious area is beautifully presented, with a large wood burner acting as a warm and welcoming focal point. The wooden flooring, deep leather sofa suites and high vaulted ceiling provide an air of luxury, aided by the graceful chandeliers. The kitchen area is bright, modern and well-equipped. There is a charming twin room on the ground floor, which looks out across the adjoining fields, where sheep and lambs graze. Stairs from the main living area lead up to a large, wood-lined double bedroom suite with a mezzanine balcony. There is also a family-sized bathroom on the ground floor.
Set amongst open farmland, with hills beyond, Springfield is in a quiet and tranquil location and makes an ideal base for couples and small families. It is situated just off the renowned North Coast 500 route, which encompasses some of the most dramatic and unspoilt scenery to be found anywhere in Britain. The nearby town of Dornoch is famous for its championship golf course and stunning sandy beach. The centre of this historic town is dominated by the beautiful 13th-century cathedral, made of sandstone with lovely stained glass windows. There is a good variety of independent shops here, as well as pubs, restaurants and cafés. Further facilities can be found in the nearby town of Tain, just 6 miles away. There are numerous places of interest in the region. Just a few miles north is Dunrobin Castle, seat of the Dukes of Sutherland for over six hundred years. Visitors are welcome to explore the castle and grounds, which were modelled on the Palace of Versailles. Golfers are spoilt for choice, with not only Royal Dornoch, but a number of other championship courses within close proximity. Fishing, sailing, kayaking, hill-walking, climbing and mountain biking are all local pastimes. Beach 4 miles. Shop and restaurant 1½ miles, pub 3 miles.
