Spacious, clean and well appointed but needing a bit of maintenance.

  • 4 of 5

We had fabulous weather so had a great holiday. The cottage got very hot because of the huge south facing window which has no blinds. We enjoyed having space to sit outside and also watching the birds and then deer in the field over the fence.

The cottage is well appointed with plenty of crockery and cutlery and glasses. The seating is fairly comfortable and the beds not bad although the mattresses are a bit lumpy. It was difficult to make the upstairs rooms dark enough as in June it’s light nearly 24 hours a day. Blackout blinds on the Velux windows would help.

Loved being so near the beach. Would definitely go back.

An excellent place away

  • 5 of 5

An amazing place in stunning scenery. The house is very well equipped, cosy and a lovely place to stay away. A real find; just a few hundred metres from a stunning beach and a great place to get it away from it all and relax.

Delightful Cottage.

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here with my whole family in August, seven of us. Plenty of room for everyone - three bathrooms so no bother getting washed in the morning! The cottage is just charming, lovely log fire which was very easy to light, plenty of logs provided. Modern kitchen with everything you could possibly want to cook a big family meal. Plus a dishwasher. Small separate television room meant anyone wanting to watch TV (the children) could do so without disturbing the others. Spacious bedrooms with very comfortable beds. Washer / dryer provided. Large garden area to run round in. Five minutes walk to the beach. Can't think of anything else you could possibly want from a holiday cottage. Thoroughly recommend.

Stunning spacious cottage with wonderful views and 2 minutes from the beach

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is set in a beautiful remote location 2 minutes from the beautiful white sands of Achmelvich Bay. The cottage is very spacious yet incredibly warm and cosy. The garden grounds are superb and we had the joy of watching the cows and deer in the field at the end of the garden. A truly spectacular holiday home close to many great little places to visit, boat trips, beautiful bays and fantastic walks including Old Man of Stoer. Definitely one of our top holiday homes and destinations.

An Amazing house in a stunning setting!

  • 5 of 5

We were blown away when we arrived at this property. The photos don't do it justice! It's huge and so well laid out and the owners have thought of everything! The kitchen was like a home from home, the beds were SO comfortable and it was so cosy! It is a very short walk to Achmelvich beach which is amazing. White sands and crystal clear waters. You are also a short drive from Lochinver which has a few shops and couple of lovely restaurants. It really is the perfect base. We will be back!
