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 breath-taking. 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. 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.
