We stayed here for four nights in November. The house is in a great location set back off the main road in its own gardens. It was very quiet and peaceful. The facilities in the house were all modern, with a well equipped kitchen. All rooms were spotless and well presented. The house has two sitting rooms, one downstairs with a TV/DVD player, and a second room upstairs off one of the bedrooms with sofas and board games. At the back of the house, there is a larged covered area that can be used to store and lock up bikes if you cannot fit them all in the porch. The house is well located on the island with the Quiraing and Storr nearby, and Portree a short drive away. The village of Staffin also has a couple of local shops, but its only a short drive to Portree where there is a good sized Co-Op. Its a good base for walking and cycling, or for reaching other areas of the Island by car or bus. The house has a modern oil fired central heating system that warms up the house very quickly. I would certainly recommend this house to friends and family, and would return if I visit Skye again in the future. I booked this house through Sykes Cottages who provided a very good service, and helped me choose this house after my first and second choices were not available for short breaks.
The house is adjacent a campsite, which you see from the front windows, but has its own garden. As we had been camping and came here for a bit of comfort this was fine for us. The location in the north of Skye was really good - lovely walk in the mountains. The houses facilities were better than described - a washer-dryer proved very useful. Some lovely touches in the bathroom. Be prepared there is no mobile signal and the local shop is closed Sundays.
We love Skye but have always loved passing through Staffin. This year we decided to stay in Staffin for the week as I have been unwell. It was the best holiday the sun shone for the whole week, the holiday cottage had everything you could possibly need. Our pup had a great time chasing rabbits as we sat on the patio. The cottage itself was spotless and there was a small campsite outside our garden gate so watching the coming and going was interesting. The owners popped in to see that all was ok. Hope to do this again and I would recommend ths cottage to anyone.
Cottage better than expected from images. Very warm and cosy. Very quiet but it is next to a campsite which wasn't open while we were there.
We have just spent a fabulous two weeks exploring Skye with this cottage as our base. When we arrived we were welcomed warmly and there was a bottle of wine waiting for us in the kitchen. The rooms were well proportioned and and well laid out. The property was very clean, well equipped and very comfortable. We had everything we could possibly need. The garden was excellent for the dogs and we were well looked after by the site caretakers, nothing was a problem for them, they were very helpful and friendly. I would recommend this cottage to friends and family. Best of all wifi and mobile phone access was limited.
Just back from a fantastic holiday in Skye. This cottage is lovely, so well equipped and spotlessly clean. There is lots of space, and very comfortable. We would thoroughly recommend this cottage to anyone looking for a home from home, and a great base in which to go exploring the fantastically beautiful Isle of Skye.
