3. Arriving at Number 4 Bignold

It is easy to find No.4 Bignold – just follow the main road through Wick as if heading to John O Groats. After passing a very large church on the left, and a small seating area on the right the road bears right. There is an old filling station on the left, currently used for selling coal and just as the road starts to bear left Bignold Court is on the left hand side.

There is a large shared parking area with parking right outside apartment number 4.

There is a shared front door which is unlocked and inside the shared entry hall, there is a key safe next to the door.

Check in times were from 3 pm and check out by 11 am.

11. Things To Note

The ceilings at this self catering holiday apartment in Wick are quite high which means the stairs going up are quite steep. There isn’t a handrail as the stairs curve around so this means extra care is needed. This might make the property unsuitable for those with young/smaller children. See the photo of the stairs below or check out the video review to see what going up the stairs is like.

Wick is very far North in the UK. That means evenings are lighter later. The curtains in the property are not blackout curtains so for those who like to sleep in a dark room an eye mask might be a good idea.

The bedroom at the front does experience some road noise. It’s not a great deal but it really depends on what you are used to. I always travel with ear plugs for sleeping so it wasn’t a problem.

14. What and Where We Ate

Lucky888 Chinese Takeaway – 36 High Street, Wick

This Chinese takeaway is a 10 minute stroll from No.4 Bignold. The sweet and sour vegetables with boiled rice, plus special fried rice, pineapple fritters and prawn crackers were nice. The service was friendly and we had our meal with pineapple fritters and prawn crackers. The total cost was £21.00. The menu is extensive with a good choice of dishes including Thai dishes.

Telephone 01955 606 888

Breakfast at Tesco Cafe

We went to the nearby Tesco supermarket for breakfast as they do a Vegan breakfast and plant milk coffees, as well as a Dragonfruit cooler. It was good value and we picked up some snacks for the rest of our day exploring the area and used the toilets before we set off.

The cafe is just on the right as you enter the Tesco supermarket.

The supermarket is found by taking a left turn out of Bignold Court and it is around 0.5 miles further North on the right hand side. There is a filling station there as well.

If you are keen to stay in a hotel in Wick here are a couple that I have also stayed in and a bit of information to help you plan your stay.

19. Bank Guest House

I have never been a fan of guest houses, but the Bank Guest House is an exception to my rule. Having had to stay in Wick a number of times for work purposes the Bank Guest House became a favourite place to stay.

It is located right on the main street of Wick and is on several floors above the old bank building. There is free parking nearby and the rooms are well equipped. There are small double rooms available, which although small are very comfortable and cosy.

I also found the hosts friendly and the breakfasts were great too.

20. Norseman Hotel

The Norseman Hotel is quite a large hotel, family run, with its own restaurant and bar.

It is within 0.5 miles of Wick train station so particularly handy for those travelling by train.

Rooms are simply styled and some Scottish touches run throughout the hotel. There is plenty of free parking on site.

This Norseman Hotel is a great place if you want to stay where you can eat, drink and sleep all in the one place!
