Customer Comments

'We celebrated our twentieth Wedding Anniversary here. What a fantastic place and setting! If you are after true luxury in one of the remotest parts of the UK then this is for you. Waking up the sunrise through those floor-to-ceiling windows was the perfect start to the day. We usually rent places in the UK for our holidays but this is the best we've seen, and we'll definitely return.'

'The best holiday I've ever had! Five stars all the way! By far the best cottage we've ever stayed in - the cottage is outstanding and truly luxurious, and the scenery is breathtaking. We were lucky enough to spot a seal and a pod of dolphins!'

'This cottage is 5 star luxury to the end, and you will not be disappointed. If you want to get away from it all, to a stunning location, this is the place to go go go - we've stayed a whole month!'
