“Home from home”
Reviewed 11 August 2013

We recently spent 2 nights with Arabella& David as our son was getting married in Northton. They could'nt have made us more welcome. We felt as though we were part of their family. The food was wonderful and so plentiful. Like other reviewers wish we could have stayed longer.

I spent two nights at Tetherstone and so wished I had the freedom to extend my stay, I absolutely loved it and cannot say enough about it! From all the unexpected little extras, such as the bubble bath in the bathroom and the yummy lemon cake that was waiting for me at the end of my first day, to the delicious french toast breakfast, my stay was way beyond my expectations. And it would have been just as delightful even without the little touches because Arabella and David are truly wonderful hosts. David was so kind to print out the local bus timetables for me, and they both suggested various walks and things to do in the local area. After being away from my own home for over a month, I felt so welcomed into their home, not just as a customer but as a friend. I highly recommend staying here and I'm already planning for a future trip back!

We stayed at Tetherstone for 2 nights recently and can't recommend it highly enough. (I must disagree with the previous review - CONS?! what cons, there are only PROS!). Our hosts were friendly and welcoming, the food was superb (apart from the usual you get home made bread with breakfast, and cake with your welcoming tray of tea), the rooms were beyond spotless and - although as said below the bathrooms are adjacent rather than ensuite - there thoughtfully are soft cotton bathrobes provided, so it isn't a problem at all, the bathroom is just outside the bedroom door.

Altogether fab, including the location, we were absolutely delighted with our choice of accommodation.

What a fab B&B, the decor is lovely and the house it is absolutely spotless. David and Arabella are a lovely friendly couple and who both bend over backwards to help you. The breakfast was very yummy, especially the homemade bread. The location is great as you are right next to all the big Harris beaches. I couldn't find any fault with this B&B and we will definitely stay here again.

Pros:
- Great location, right next to one of the most beautiful beaches on Harris, very close to the Ferry to St Kilda, to the main restaurant on the South of the Island (the Anchorage), etc. You could hardly be in a better spot on Harris.
- Lovely rooms.
- David and Arabella are fantastic hosts and make you feel at home. I was travelling by myself and they made me feel like an old friend who was staying over.

Cons:
- I did wonder if it would be possible to rearrange the doors and walls upstairs so I didn't have to get out of the room to get to my bathroom (although the doors are literally adjacent). There were strangers staying in the other room and I did not feel comfortable moving around naked.
- This stay brought to life for me the difference between a B&B and a guest house. This is the latter, i.e. this is not a small hotel with no restaurant. You are literally staying in somebody's house. It is pleasant, relaxing, and very friendly but they have no license, no bar, no ample guest-dedicated common parts. As long as one's expectations are set, this will be a feature and not a con. To be clear, all accomodations on Harris are of this type, except Scarista House.

On the whole, this is a gem of guest house in a fantastic location; run by lovely, knowledgeable people. I recommend it to everyone staying in the area.

Had a fabulous stay at Tetherstone B & B. The owners, Arabella and David, couldn't have been more welcoming and helpful. The location is absolutely stunning. The rooms are very beautifully decorated, with every need catered for, and very comfortable beds. The breakfasts are really delicious with a varied menu including full Scottish or healthy, delicious fruit salad and muesli. Excellent warm showers and heating. Many beautiful walks straight from the property and a really good local cafe for delicious lunches. A very fair rate and worth every penny. Would certainly recommend to other travellers.

Fantastic B & B, in a beautiful position with wonderful views in all directions. The rooms are wonderful, beds comfortable and the breakfasts outstanding - including wonderful home made bread, fruit salads, yogurt, stornaway black pudding ........ David and Arabella are wonderful hosts whose local knowledge helped us to make the most of our stay. Cant recommend Tetherstone too highly.
