“Fabulous cottage in a great location!”

This is our third trip to the Isle of Lewis and Glenview cottage is our favourite by far! We would definitely stay here again and would highly recommend it.

The cottage itself is beautifully decorated, really clean and also very practical. That is, it has three bedrooms, two bathrooms, an entrance bit where you can dump your outdoor gear as soon as you come in, a large parking area right next to the cottage, a dining table with superb views – a great spot from which to enjoy breakfast, a sitting room with a multifuel stove, a lounge area in the conservatory – which has under floor heating, a well equipped kitchen, wooden floors throughout but still retaining a cosy feel, central heating (we visited in Feb!) and all in a great location for visiting the entire island. There is also a decked seating area outside which overlooks the beautiful loch below, one to enjoy during the warmer months though!

Rhoda, Neil and Rusty the dog met us on arrival at the cottage with a hot cuppa and plate of goodies – a welcomed refreshment after our long journey! They gave us a quick run through of need-to-knows and made us and our little dog Melvin feel most welcome. Rhoda had even baked us a cake! She had also left us a plate of locally produced smoked salmon in the fridge for our supper! It actually felt like we were visiting family, a really lovely couple.

Writing this review just makes me want to go back again. So I hope you have a fabulous time on Lewis and enjoy Glenview cottage, and Rhoda and Neil’s kind and generous hospitality, as much as we did. Lisa, Darran and Melvin the dog.

“A fantastic place to stay”

Had a wonderful holiday on the Isle of Lewis, the accommodation was excellent with everything you could ask for. A beautiful island with lovely beaches and places to visit. Would certainly recommend a break away from it all to relax and enjoy the environment and take in the history of the area.

Many thanks to Rhoda and Neil for such a lovely holiday and hope to return again.
