This is a great house for a family trip away with lots of different living spaces, including a snug. And it's pet friendly, which is great too. The garden goes down onto the beach and the views into Broadford Bay are lovely. Broadford is also a great base for traveling about Skye and it has good amenities and some pubs and cafes in walking distance.
So many positives it's hard to know where to start. The house is big - though on first arrival we feared it wasn't as we saw the downstairs lounge. This turned out to be more of a snug with the main event being upstairs with spectacular views over the bay (take your binoculars). The rooms were spacious and considering the size of the property everything was spotless and like new (there is more than enoughcrockery/cutlery etc to cater for a small army).
The fact it is dog friendly was key to our decision to book and she felt right at home. There's a lovely walk if you turn right out of the property and along to Waterloo, offering great views of the bay and easy access to the sandbank/rockpools.
I cannot speak highly enough of the place - the beds were comfortable, the facilites were great and there is even a shed you can use as a dryign room if you've been caught in bad weather. They really have thought of everything.
Struggling to find a negative but the stairs to the bedrooms in the main house are a little bit uneven so be careful with elderly/younger visitors. The bothy is a lovely little touch and a lovely room.
All in all, a great stay and a place I'd happily recommend.
We were a party of 7 travelling all the way from Warwickshire and after a 9 hour drive, boy! did we find paradise... Its love at first sight with Isle of Skye and this cottage was icing on the cake.
We arrived about 3 hours prior to the check-in time and our host was kind enough to let us in. The cottage was clean, thoughtful and well stocked with all the necessities. Off road parking is a big plus. The games room was so good that all the guys hung in there one entire night playing cards and walking up to a lovely beach view. Within a mins of walk you find large coop store and fuel. Plenty of options for good restaurants nearby.
We did plenty of outings - to Talisker distillery, and by the way, do not miss the seafood shack on the hill (The Oyster Shed)- drove to Inverness through some of the most picturesque views in the world. Whether you are visiting as a family or as a group of friends looking to have great time, I highly recommend checking this cottage first, you will not be disappointed. The entire party agreed that this has been one of our best holidays - the only complaint is that we stayed only for 3 nights
Stayed at the house over New Year with 7 other family members. The house is absolutely beautiful. Plenty room for everyone. Very cosy, very warm, comfy beds and pillows, loads of towels, fully equipped kitchen which made preparing family meals very easy. Large living area upstairs where we all gathered for games nights, smaller living room with log burner downstairs which was perfect for chilling with a book. Amazing sea view. You can walk from the garden straight onto the beach. Shops nearby and a couple of restaurants. Lara left a welcome basket and some bits and pieces in the fridge which was very thoughtful. Would 100% recommend and can't wait to go back.
Our family of 7 stayed at this lovely cottage for 3 nights to explore Skye. The accommodation was excellent. It was very well appointed with all amenities to make our stay very comfortable. The cottage very warm and inviting. The kids loved to explore the beach when tide was out. Location very convenient to explore island. We also had fabulous weather which allowed us to enjoy the cottage fully. We can't wait to return.
A fantastic place to stay, conviniently located. Visited with family of 8. Plenty of room for all and a woodburner made evenings very cosy. Spectacular views.. and a price - value for money! Thanks for a fab holiday!
What a fabulous cottage. Had all we needed and more! Wish I had booked for longer. Kids loved the huge upstairs lounge with the great views! The adults loved the cosy sitting room downstairs! Dog loved it all!
