Bayview is in a great situation, overlooking Cromarty Firth including surprisingly interesting and pleasing views of “parked” rigs. Good if you like views of sunsets. Within easy walking distance of village. Cromarty is compact with loads of interesting attractions for such a small village. House also handy for other attractions of Black Isle & further afield.
House is very comfortable,clean ,warm, family friendly and extremely well equipped with lots of home comforts you don’t get in an average self catering property.
Been several times and always happy to return.
I try to get to the Black Isle at least once a year so have stayed in many holiday lets. This is the second time I've stayed here and it's now my firm first choice. The location is superb - the views over the firth are stunning in all weathers and the house is just a couple of minutes walk from the centre of Cromarty. Waking to the views, the gentle sound of waves and a the beach just yards away is so relaxing. The house is always spotless and the owner is obviously conscious of making that extra effort for her guests. Even the gentleman who looks after the lovely garden and the next door neighbours are really welcoming! I stay in Cromarty and then travel around during my stay and I find this let and it's location is perfect for that purpose. But I've also had friends on the Black Isle come round for a meal while I've been staying so I've used it for entertaining too (the kitchen and dining areas are also superbly equipped and in great condition). If you're on holiday you want the place you're staying in to be as convenient and comfortable as possible and not have to be concerned with any aspect of it. That's another reason I return here - peace of mind. I have recommended this let to friends and family without any hesitation and I'm really looking forward to returning next year. Thank you!!!!!!!!
Brilliant location on the sea front - lots of light and sunsets are amazing! The dog loves the beach.
Very comfortable house, with everything you need for a good holiday.
Latest of many visits and never been disappointed. Will definitely visit again.
Lovely location but did not live up to expectations. We stayd there twice.
Have visited Cromarty on holiday for several years, a wonderful place to relax and explore. As we need accusation suitable for elderly and infirm can be difficult to find accessible property.
On our first visit to found we had to clean and empty bins in the kitchen and remove rug in Dinning room as covered in dog hair. Patio area is not as expected in photographs, very neglected and looked as if it had been that way for some years.
Because we enjoyed location booked for second year. As we need accommodation that is suitable for elderly and infirm can be difficult to find accessible property.
However on entering property was overcome with smell of damp dogs. Large living room rug was damp and stank of damp dog and was covered in dog hairs. Called landlord to discuss and was told they knew about that but had aired it slightly before we arrived. I had to get permission to remove it to the shed then clean the downstairs floors myself. Not a good start to our holiday.
When checking upstairs one of the rooms hadn't been made up. So I again spoke to landlord who said she would get it sorted while we where out. When we got back only one ot the twin beds had been made up and had to hunt for the bedding for the second bed and do it myself.
The patio area was worse than the year before and furnisher was damaged and dangerous, table ends had been snapped off, as hard plastics was very jagged and difficult to sit around.
Kitchen is very well equipped.
Stunning views of the firth but won't be back and have booked alternate accommodation in Cromarty this year.
The house has a spectacular location looking out over the firth and only a short walk into Cromarty centre for lovely food at the Royal Hotel or coffee and cakes at the Coupers Creek.
The house is well equipped and furnished with lots of space. The extension at the back is great for relaxing in and dining too. The owner was helpful and the cupboards were full of lots of stor cupboard essentials which was really helpful. The only addition I would make is wifi but I do appreciate it is nice to get way from it all too!
