Lower Thura House in Bower, near Thurso, Highlands sleeps 6 people. Lower Thura House near Thurso is situated in a rural location on a working beef and sheep farm. This traditional, stone-built, 18th-century farmhouse was once a staging post and inn where horses would be re-shod before continuing on. This detached house has been beautifully restored and renovated over the years, whilst retaining many charming original features, including beams and exposed stone wall. It is a very warm and homely house, proffering a feeling of space, with its large rooms and high ceilings and it oozes character.

The spacious farmhouse-style kitchen/dining room is a real delight. With a high beamed ceiling and large dining table, it provides plenty of space for families and groups. It is exceptionally well equipped with modern built-in units and electrical goods. A door leads through from here to a conservatory with table and chairs, and the views across the pretty gardens make this an ideal spot to sit and enjoy a pre-dinner drink whilst planning the next day’s excursion. The living room is particularly captivating, with a feature exposed stone wall and welcoming wood burner. An original farmhouse staircase leads up to two further bedrooms and both have superb views across open countryside. The gardens are a real delight with a substantial lawn enclosed by old stone walls and mature hedges, making it private and secluded.
