The property

Peninsula Cottage sits right on the edge of the sea and just a short walk from a large sandy beach and also another beach just round the bay where seals are frequently lying close to the shore and can be seen easily. Listening to their haunting 'song' is so wonderful and not to be missed. Visit Scotland have awarded this cottage one of the rare 5 star grades and it certainly deserves it. From the moment you arrive it is apparent that every attention to detail to ensure a pleasurable and comfortable stay has been made. The furnishings are all of a high standard and beds are comfortable with lovely linens and covers. Luxury fluffy towels are provided too. The use of Hebridean Tweed enhances the island connection and the whole cottage is light and relaxing. Panoramic sea and bay views across Broad Bay to The Braighe are a significant attraction of the living room and the glass sliding wall will offer an endlessly fascinating visual display, whatever mood the sea presents. An inset gas, real flame fire, large flat screen TV with Sky and the computer station with free broadband access all add that special something, not often found in self catering. There is a hot tub in the secluded and private area of the rear garden with a garden table and seating to the side. The heated garage stores 2 mountain bikes for use by guests and additional garden seating. There is plenty of space in here for leaving boots, kayaks, fishing or golfing gear etc. The kitchen is superbly appointed with many additional extras not often found; Denby tableware, coffee machine, Bosch oven and grill all make for a home from home holiday experience. There is a breakfast table in the kitchen and a formal dining table in the sitting room. Again, these are furnished with high standard table and glassware. The bedrooms are spacious and the bathroom particularly so with a deep oval bath and a rain head star shower. The bedlinen is 400 count Egyptian cotton, all of which ensures that you enjoy a top rated 5 star experience when staying at Peninsula Cottage. Stornoway, the main town and ferry port of Lewis, is just a 10 minute drive and the airport is closer which means that, once on Lewis, you are soon ensconced in comfort and can start to unwind into 'island time' which you will find runs much slower than 'mainland time'! The islands can be reached by flights from Edinburgh, Glasgow or Inverness; or by ferry from Uig on Skye to Tarbert, or Ullapool to Stornoway. From here you can visit all the best attractions that the Isles of Lewis and Harris have to offer whether that is the famous Callanish Stones, the Carloway Broch, the Tweed makers and the many craft centres on the Lewis or the fabulous and world famous Harris beaches with such evocative names - Luskentyre, Scarista, Horgabost and Seilebost, to name just a few. Sail to the St Kilda Islands for a once in a lifetime experience or just stay put and relax and chill out in this fabulous cottage by the sea. The natural environment attracts walkers, cyclists, kayakers, photographers and all those with a passion for nature. The islands are steeped with rich culture and history and have a reputation for tradition and warm and welcoming locals. Peninsula Cottage is situated on the Eye Peninsula in the crofting village of Aignish.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £250.

About the location

STORNOWAY

Arnol 14.5 miles; Callanish Stones 16 miles.

Stornoway is the only town in the Outer Hebrides and is a bustling and growing area with a busy working harbour, a great selection of shops selling local gifts including Harris Tweed, leisure facilities and wonderful award-winning restaurants selling locally sourced food of the highest quality. Lewis is a place where the lilting Gaelic language is spoken everywhere! Visitors to the town will find plenty to keep them occupied, the magnificent Lews Castle Grounds and the iconic Lews Castle, many good museums and art galleries and also a smart golf course and clubhouse. The large, quiet sandy beaches are close by and provide visitors with wonderful views and the town itself forms a great base for a holiday exploring the unique islands that form the Outer Hebrides. On the north west side of Lewis you can visit the village of Arnol with its Blackhouse Museum, an unmissable visit for anyone wanting to understand the way of life that was once widespread in Lewis. Carloway Broch is nearby and is another fascinating landmark and incredibly well preserved. The Callanish Stones from the Neolithic are also well worth visiting. The whalebone arch and numerous Iron Age dwellings on stunning Bosta beach make for great days out. The friendliness of the local people will astound visitors to the islands and you cannot fail to be impressed with the genteel and contented pace of life you will encounter here.

Note: The bed in bedroom 1 is a super-king-size zip-link as standard, if you require this to be a twin, please contact us to advise. Note: Though electricity is included in the rent, electric for charging cars is not included in the rental. Note: Please bear in mind that this property is located on an island and therefore only accessible by plane or ferry.
