Traditional Hebridean stone built cottage, extensively renovated to ensure the most comfortable surroundings. Sleeps 4 people in two bedrooms, one ensuite. Walking and Kayaking from your doorstep. Free WiFi.
This traditional stone cottage, on Great Bernera, Isle of Lewis, has just been extensively renovated and upgraded and just like Valasay, our other property, it has been awarded 4 star grading by VisitScotland.It is a great location for walking, being on the coastal walking route to the beautiful Bosta beach where you’ll find an Iron Age house. The old byre, by the house, offers storage facilities for kayaks, and the cottages location by the sea means that kayaks can be launched from the 12 acre croft to explore the area around Loch Roag.Inside the holiday cottage, the cosy lounge has a lovely cottagey feel enhanced by high ceilings, deep window ledges and a feature alcove where you’ll find lots of local interest books and maps. Resting on a slate hearth is a multi-fuel stove since no cottage is complete without dancing flames! No expense has been spared to provide top quality furniture including Jane Churchill and Laura Ashley fabrics and solid oak furniture throughout.The kitchen is a lovely bright room which is bathed in sunlight all afternoon and evening thanks to 3 windows on 2 walls. We have maintained the cottage feel by fitting cream shaker style kitchen units under an oak effect worktop. Leading from the kitchen is a porch where outdoor clothes can be stored.2 sunny bedrooms ensure that you are well rested to make the most of your holiday. The master bedroom has a kingsize bed, built in wardrobe and ensuite shower room whilst the twin room has versatile zip and link beds which convert from 2 singles to a large king size bed.The large family sized bathroom has a free-standing shower cubicle, with powerful thermostatic shower as well as a bath, washhand basin and toilet. You’ll find an electric shaver point here too.
For those who want to keep in touch with friends and family, we provide WiFi free of charge and our collection of books, maps and DVDs ensure that you will make the most of your time here.
