Fabulous cottage. Lovely and cosy. Had great times watching netflix in the evening with 87 year old aunt. Could do with a handle for the elderly in the shower to help them feel supported. We both had great sleeps. Very comfortable beds. Everything you needed in the cottage. 5 minute walk to Tarbert. 20 minutes from beautiful beaches. We both really enjoyed. Maureen
We have never given a negative review, and do so now with reluctance and care. The "garden" at the front had rubbish in ie, broken tiles, bits of wallpaper, a broken lampshide. There was plaster dust in the wardrobe and on the coat hangers. We spoke to the owner straightaway, and she arranged for the cleaner to call again. We explained what we were unhappy with, and received well meant apologies. The bin in the kitchen only stayed closed with the aid of a stone. To give a balanced opinion, there was a bottle of Presecco, guest soap, biscuits, and small jar of homemade jam, as a welcome hamper. The bed was comfortable, there were lots of good information books.
Harris was beautiful, we really had a good time. I would suggest that we were a little unlucky to use Kelpie Cottage before it had recovered from the plasters.
On reading this it could be taken as a little petty, however I have not listed everything.
Just back from a short break with my 2 daughters staying at Kelpie cottage. Had a great few days in Harris which was definitely enhanced by lovely weather. We were greeted with a lovely welcome hamper which was a lovely touch.
Cottage is well equipped and very comfortable. Girls were pleased to find good WiFi and Apple box connected toTV. Really comfortable beds.
I would definitely recommend Kelpie cottage and will return.
Very handy for the ferry and village also lovely hotel down the road , we found it good for visiting the Island all very lovely .
Just home from a week exploring Harris and Lewis, using Kelpie Cottage as our base camp. A few minutes from the ferry and you're there, and it felt like home in no time at all. Plenty space for the two of us to eat, sleep and lounge. Well stocked with local info to help plan your adventures. The cottage is equipped so well you could stop indoors all holiday, but obviously with the most amazing scenery in the world on your doorstep (almost literally) you might want to venture out. Harris in particular is beautiful beyond description, and Tarbert is the perfect base. There is no direction you can travel where the views won't knock you sideways. Anyway, I'm meant to be reviewing Kelpie Cottage, not the island. It's a lovely little snug with all mod cons, a very comfy bed and perfectly placed. You will enjoy, believe me.
We much appreciated the hamper of goodies, thanks, and we love the cottage being just as a cottages should be, adequately well equipped, comfortable and welcoming with all essential mod cons and a very friendly helpful management. Kitchen is good, beds and furniture are good and v. comfy and furnishing are tasteful, TV is good, and there is a beautiful new pine cottage staircase, improvements certainly are ongoing. The loo seat, no problem, we improvised a way to make it stay up when required. Seating and more t.l.c. outside would be nice. Thank you Emma for a very happy stay in your charming cottage. All good wishes, Annabel and David B.
Amazing wee gem in the most stunning location. We loved the cottage and the quirkiness. Very comfortable and well situated for our travels round a stunning island gorgeous we will be back xx
