A week in May at Gannet Cottage really was the perfect retreat. We don't normally use self catering, preferring hotels, but this is the only way to do Harris in our opinion. Excellent views from the quiet location in Northton, really top-rate equipment in the beautifully appointed property, and a very friendly Dutch welcome too (from the owners who live down the drive). Although Fulmar Cottage is close by the two properties are cleverly sited to avoid being seen from each other. The huge open plan living area with galley kitchen is a great place to chill out, and the main bedroom at the back is cosy with underfloor heating. For my taste, there was too much technology in the bathroom - jacuzzi bath, shower with far too many knobs and dials, and a totally impenetrable sauna cabin - but if you like that sort of thing you're in heaven here. Well equipped kitchen too. Very good entry hall with hard floor and plenty of coat hanging and boot space so you can leave Harris at the door. Highly recommended.
