The property

Yet another stunning addition to our Outer Hebridean Collection! Beach Cottage is a delight for the senses; visually magnificent, spectacularly located, luxuriously appointed, but just breathe deep the fresh sea breezes for a truly detoxifying and enriching rest. Everything about this house is about light, colour and space but nowhere more so than in the main social room, which is breathtaking. Nothing prepares you for the moment you step inside this fabulous creation. If your passion is for contemporary clean lines, ultra luxurious furnishings and exquisite attention to detail, in even the smallest feature, then this is the one for you. The view to the sea is mesmerising and hard to capture in words or photographs. Comfort has also been at the forefront of the owner's mind in the creation of this special cottage. The house throughout has, despite being for just 2, been fully provided for all you need for a really enjoyable and comfortable stay. If you have friends staying on the island elsewhere then it's no problem to ask them to dinner and you will find entertaining for four quite easy. The owners of the cottage have an art gallery in their house next door Beach Cottage occupies a location so close to Dalbeg beach that you can just pack up the picnic hamper provided for you and head on down with rugs and dine on the shore - usually with no one else around. Nestled between the owner's house, small art gallery and Loch Cottage, (another 5 star cottage owned by the same owners and let by LHH), Beach Cottage could also be the quiet retreat for Grandparents, with their family occupying Loch Cottage. If you can tear yourself away from this unique cottage, in its magnificent setting, the area has plenty to offer and there is easy access to all areas of Lewis. Harris is under an hour drive and Stornoway under half an hour. Beaches, archaeological sites and wildlife are all easily seen or visited with the 2 most famous, Callanish Stones and Carloway Broch being very close. Luxury awaits you and we know that you will not be disappointed. Next door to the cottage is the owner's 'small but perfectly formed' art gallery to which you are welcome to visit. WINTER LETS: If you would like to come and experience the Hebrides in winter, with its startling beauty and potential of Northern Lights, we understand concerns about travel being cancelled at short notice. We undertake to refund in full should your travel be disrupted due to weather conditions. Please note: Beach Cottage has been created very much with the couple in mind and has not been designed to accommodate a baby or toddler. 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. EPC Rating: Band C

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £200.

About the location


Stornoway 26.7 miles

Borve is a village resting on the western side of the Isle of Lewis, close to the island’s main town of Stornoway. Reached by two adjacent bridges, it nestles on the River Borve and its name is derived from the old Norse word ‘borg’ meaning fort. It is known for the Clan Macquarrie rescue in 1953 when a Clan Line vessel ran aground in terrible gales and local men from the village rescued all 66 crew members. In recognition of the villagers’ bravery Clan Line donated funds for the construction of a village hall. There is a convenience store here and the Borve House Hotel great for stopping off for refreshment and a bite to eat. Just outside Borve there are loads of visitor attractions including the Butt of Lewis lighthouse and the Port of Ness Slipway and Breakwater which both offer breath-taking views over the ocean and beyond. Ness Historical Society offers a fascinating insight into the culture and history of the island and Stornoway is a short drive from the village which has a good selection of shops, cafes, galleries and restaurants and is the gateway to the exploring the rest of the Outer Hebrides.
