The Ard, Breaclete, Bernera, Isle of Lewis, Isle of Lewis, HS2 9LT

    The Ard is a new build 2 bedroom holiday cottage on the captivating island of Great Bernera.

    The Ard offers a setting in which to relax and appreciate the tranquility of island atmosphere and is only 5 mins from the beautiful beach of Bosta, which sites a reconstructed, fully working Iron Age house and a Marcus Vergette art installation, The Time & Tide bell.

    The Ard has been designed with the comfort of guests in mind. It is both spacious and well equipped and is the perfect choice for couples or families wanting to 'get away from it all' and explore the wild and beautiful islands of the Outer Hebrides.

    The house is located in a stunning setting and to make the most of this, the living room and kitchen have been positioned looking out to sea, patio doors lead out from the living room onto a decked area where you can sit and relax while making the most of the view.

    Great Bernera lies on the north-west coast of Lewis and is linked to it by a road bridge. It is approx 26 miles from the local town of Stornoway. It hosts stunning landscapes, breathtaking beaches, caribbean turquoise clear seas. It is the perfect for walking, fishing, cycling holidays. Fishing rods and bikes can be made available free of charge.

    The cottage is situated in the village of Breaclete which is home to a small museum, mini-mart and off licence, school, post office, church, community centre with cafe, petrol station, fire station, new childrens playpark and doctor's surgery.

    We have added some extra touches to ensure you are as comfortable as possible during your stay. An aga stove is in the living room making sure the house is nice and cosy. All beds are fitted with Kaymed spinal support mattresses aiming to reduce any pressure from build up leading to neck, back and joint pains during sleep.

    The bathroom has a whirlpool bath with 21 jets (base, side, back and reflexology and 7 colours). The bath has a directional flow valve allowing you to isolate various jets to help relaxation and focus in on certain problematic areas of the body... just the thing at the end of a tiring day exploring the islands!
