My partner and I stayed at Grandfather's House for 5 nights in October and absolutely loved it. The house is cosy, stylish, comfortable, warm and in the perfect community, with the amazing Croft 36 and excellent Temple Cafe in the village. It's a great base for walking, cycling and exploring Harris and Lewis and we covered a lot of ground. The local beaches are a joy. The welcome, kindness and hospitality were superb - the family are the perfect hosts. Thank you so much and we will be back - can't think of anywhere I rather escape city life to!

Having just return from a week of wall to wall sunshine on Harris I am thrilled to review Fulmar Cottage and give a hearty 5 stars! The welcome by Suzan and Jan was an example of what was to follow a week of kindness and comfort! While a little windy to actually paint large canvasses outside the spectacular views from the sitting room and an ever changing light was inspirational.
Suzan herself offered informal art classes to some of our group which we all enjoyed and learnt a lot!
The accommodation was comfortable and well appointed and very well equipped. As a hamlet, Northton has superb facilities including fresh eggs and a daily bread maker at the bottom of the drive. The lady also offers a home delivery meal service, the seafood thermidor being a speciality.
We are already planning our return, I feel a cosy winter break coming on!

We rented both Fulmar and Gannet cottages for a week at the start of June. When we arrived we were greeted by Jan and Suzan, who spent the next half hour introducing us to the cottages and the local area, quite refreshing as often when you arrive at a cottage the keys are in the door and you never meet anyone!

You will spend at least 3mins staring at the view out the window to the front of the cottages (we were there for at least 5 but it was a lovely day!) so wear comfortable shoes on arrival!

Location excellent (someone said it was a drive to the beach, only if you are old or lazy), cottages excellent, croft 36 has great produce for sale and meals that they will prepare and deliver, 2 mins drive to shop at Leverburgh and a cafe along the road which provides for both veggies and meat eaters alike.

Book at beachview if you like good weather, hillwalking, wildlife spotting (we saw a porpoise, golden eagle, many bird species, seals and a wire haired German pointer) and obviously the second to none beaches.

Beautiful place with friendly people.

We stayed at Gannet cottage in May for one week and were warmly welcomed by Jan, Suzan and their daughter. The cottage was beautifully clean, spacious and decorated to a high standard including amazing artwork by Suzan herself of the sea life on Harris. I would definately recommend a stay here. there is no need to repeat what the cottage offers in terms of relaxation i.e. sauna etc as others have written this. The view is amazing. You have easy access to 4 beaches which we all enjoyed, lovely places to eat and art galleries.
Jan and Suzan are there whenever you need them (our car broke down and they were very very helpful indeed buying us milk etc as we could not get to a shop) We recommend this 100%
Thank you

What better place for a reunion with family! We travelled from Vancouver, Canada to Edinburgh to reunite with our son and daughter-in-law and then go together to the Outer Hebrides not knowing what to expect....the experience was amazing! Fulmar cottage on the Isle of Harris is superb in all it offers. Suzan and Jan have thought of all the essentials plus so much more to make your stay comfortable and one of ease. Their hospitality and helpful knowledge about surrounding hikes and beaches and all that there is to see gives you a head start to exploring this amazing part of the world...so different than any place we had ever been. "The beaches are the most beautiful he has have ever seen" a quote from our son who has travelled all over the world....the hikes in the hills, the many times a day of weather change just added to the experience. Walking through the hills along sheep trodden trails and along the white sand beaches to an old stone church that sits atop a cliff by the sea, we thought we heard the sound of bagpipes but wondered if it was just our fanciful imagination. As we continued and crested the brow of another hill there he was, a gentleman meandering along playing his bagpipes, what a perfect addition to the setting around us! Another day a beautiful rainbow arched over the whole village and ended behind one of the cottages in the village and we mused whether this place was truly the sought after "pot of gold!" The cottage view from the large windows, the deluxe well thought out facilities, the small but extremely informative museum close by, the fixings for dinner almost at your doorstep at Croft 36 where they respect your honesty and allow you to 'help yourself', and the proximity to the Isle of Lewis, Leverburgh, and the many beaches to explore, makes this an ideal place for as active or restful a vacation as you would want. We had both, and are so appreciative of all Suzan, Jan and their family envisioned when they built the Fulmar, Gannet and Grandfather's cottages and then offered all of this to travellers from around the world!

Room Tip: Fulmar cottage was perfect for four adults, and would suit a family with younger children as well. Bright, with lots of natural light....more than well-equipped for self-catering, all with high quality furnishings, fixtures, kitchen equipement/dishes, comfortable beds.
