We're just back from having a wonderful two weeks down in Mellon Charles. This house has everything you need for a comfortable stay. The kichen is very well equipped, there's a barbecue and decking to make the most of the outdoors, a telescope for wildlife viewing, a super drying room, and views to keep you sane for a few months.
But what makes this property stand out for me is the extensive land around the house which is very well fenced and secure. This allowed my border terrier (Magnus) to roam to his little heart's desire without me worrying about him all the time.
Oh, and no review would be complete without mention of the Nespresso machine that allowed us to get our regular supply of Americano and espresso.
Having holidayed in the Poolewe and Gairloch area from year dot, we rarely need an excuse to visit again. However if a reason was needed, just walk out of the door at Shorecroft onto the decking and be greeted by a panorama that is unmatched anywhere in the world. it is just one of a plethora of views in the area that take the breath away. The house is superbly designed and laid out and is fitted and kitted with nothing forgotten. I am reluctantly spreading the gospel here as it may jeopardise our chances of repeat bookings!!
We've just returned from a wonderful 2 weeks at Shore Croft. The house itself is spacious and modern with lots of stylish touches. Large kitchen diner equipped with everything you could possibly need. Lovely living area with a real fire and amazing views. 4 spacious bedrooms and modern bathrooms. We were very lucky with the weather and loved the outdoor seating areas and gas BBQ. Every day we spotted wildlife - dolphins, porpoises and seals, as well as numerous sea birds. We all loved the fire pit in the evenings and kids enjoyed toasting marshmallows watching the magnificent sunsets. The house is right on the most lovely pebbly beach, with direct access to another more secluded cove. All enjoyed swimming in the sea loch. Big well maintained garden. Fabulous location, 8 minute drive to local shop and nice hotel with good food. Lovely sandy beach a short drive away. In all a perfect holiday home - all declared it the best holiday ever!
Being there for the second time, we were surprised, why it took us 9 years to go back, next time won't take that long. The house is really a dream, the location, the furniture, the equipment - anything you could think of. We were travelling with 7 adults and there is plenty of space for all of them. We'll come back !!!
Where do I start? It's been 10 years since we visited this beautiful part of Scotland and the area did not disappoint. There is something magical about Loch Ewe and surrounding beaches and villages and Shore Croft was an amazing place to stay. The house is beautifully decorated with everything you need for a comfortable stay with it's own private beach. Everything has been thought of at Shore Croft to make your stay as comfortable as possible even down to providing a bed for the dog. Fantastic week and the weather was great. We can't wait to return.
The house is beautifully constructed, has all the facilities that you're likely to need, and is situated in a beautiful location with fantastic countryside and a beach right on the doorstep. The high-quality bikes available for hire at the house enable you easily to go biking in the stunning nearby mountains. There is shopping, cafe, pub, etc. in the nearby village and we never lacked anything. This is a wonderful, restful place to spend time chilling out.
Shore Croft is a very warm, welcoming (and well insulated) property, it offers 5 star accommodation in a stunning location.
The four spacious bedrooms have comfortable beds and are tastefully furnished and decorated. The bathrooms were spacious and modern and the underfloor heating was a treat!
The lounge felt very homely, again with very tasteful decorations and furnishings. The kitchen / dining area was bright and modern and spacious. The large utility room was also well used!
Outside is access to the pebbly beach, outdoor seating areas and fire pit, don't get too cosy inside, get wrapped up and go and watch the shooting stars.
The most refreshing thing about Shore Croft was the lack of signs, there's nothing worse than being told "don't touch this, don't touch that", everything was neatly provided in a welcome pack and instruction books.
Shore Croft provides everything you need, including spare light bulbs, picnic blankets, outdoor wine glasses, herbs and spices, the list is endless! Not once did we say "they haven't provided.....".
The cleanliness was immaculate, top marks to the housekeeper, she keeps the place looking brand new!
The quality of the towels, bedding, soaps, crockery, cutlery etc was brilliant (I'm now a big fan of The White Company)!
Shore Croft...we miss you already and can't wait to come back.
Thank you for a wonderful week.
