“Ideal for Lewis exploring”
Reviewed 30 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

Cracking holiday home at the top of Lewis. Exceptionally well equipped for almost any requirement, the open peat fire being the highlight. Most welcoming.

“Excellent holiday home”
Reviewed 25 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

Booked this last year and excellent communications and advice from Mairi the owner, no question was too much trouble and she gave lots of advice on places to visit and most importantly the next local beaches for kids and dog! She asked in advance about breakfast pack for our arrival and was happy to supply something for vegetarian as well (all included in price of house). The pack included bread, milk, eggs, Stornoway sausages and black pudding (which were apparently amazing!) and bacon.
We arrived very late off the last ferry, around 10.45 but had a quick welcome from lady in cottage behind who looks after the house. Mairi had asked our arrival time in advance. The cottage was lovely and warm as well as spotlessly clean.
Cottage had almost everything we needed, lovely decoration and great enclosed front garden for kids and pup. The peat fire was amazing and we had it on regularly as we loved the smell- although trying to prise the peat off the pup wasn't so easy! 3 good sized bedrooms, all doubles and lots of storage space. Plenty of wee extras like washing powder, dishwasher tablets (and not just the normal 2 or 3 asking to be replaced!) loo rolls, salt, pepper, sauces etc, tea, coffee, hot chocolate, dog crate and some food and so much more.
4 amazing beaches within 5-10 min drive and so much more to see further afield. Plenty choice of local food and Cross stores stock lots of it from famous black pudding to smokies also from Stornoway and caught locally. A few cafes around although don't assume open even if says so on website!
Excellent location if you enjoy peace and quiet, not a sound outside most of the time and excellent view of the Butt of Lewis lighthouse from the kitchen window. A bit of a drive to places like Arnol and Calanaish (50 mins which we didn't mind) but worth it for the closeness of the beaches. 40 mins from Stornoway but excellent and very quiet roads. Would definitely recommend this lovely cottage!

This cottage is perfect for exploring northern Lewis - 3 bedrooms, large kitchen, great peat fire (even in July!). Everything very tidy, and the owner even left us fresh eggs, bacon, black pudding, and bread. Very thoughtfully done. Washer and dishwasher included. We stayed here with our two children - aged 7 and 9 - and my sister and brother-in-law. I strongly recommend it - if we're ever back we would definitely stay here again.

Very nice modern, warm and comfy house. Lovely breakfast pack. Nice location but out of the way of usual tourist spots. Only downside was very uncomfortable double bed

Glad you enjoyed the breakfast. Sorry the bed wasn't to your taste, we do our best but can't offer mattresses to suit everyone. That said, the one in the green room is being replaced in July. x

“Great house, great Island, great Holiday.”

people found this review helpful

Fantastic house in a lovely part of the island. We stayed for a couple of weeks over the summer and had a great time. The house is immaculate, well furnished and spacious, with a good sized garden for kids / dogs to play in, is a gentle walk away from Ness beach, and even better a short drive away from the best marag dubh in the world at Cross Stores. I particularly enjoyed eating said black pudding in front of the the peat fire every night. I know it was July, but you've to take these opportunities when you get them...

Stayed here for two weeks during the Hebridean Celtic festival. We could not have asked for a better holiday or better accommodation! Everything that we could possibly need and more was catered for! The house was immaculate, the location is stunning and very close to some of the most beautiful beaches I have seen. It would be a great house for families. Very child proof and everything you could need is provided! From Moses baskets to high chairs to toys! I would highly recommend a stay in this fantastic home from home!

Fantastic holiday rental with everything you'd expect and more. 10 Minute walk to unspoilt beach, bowling alley, play parks and probably the best meal you would get in Borve House hotel 15 minute drive.
The house is extremely well appointed with 3 great bedrooms, Large lounge and kitchen with a garden and off road parking. Fully equipped and extremely child friendly with cot, moses basket, toys and games, high chair. Washing machine and microwave and fridge/freezer. Beautiful open fire with peat supplied by the owner. Pet friendly, our dog loved all the local walks!
Local village shops 5 minute drive, larger supermarkets and various other shops available in larger town of Stornoway 40 minute drive.
If you love unspoilt scenery, peace and tranquillity - look no further - We loved it and will certainly be returning!
The owner was extremely easy and friendly to deal with and gave great information on local attractions.
