“Beautiful cottage on a beautiful island”
Reviewed 21 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Croft cottage was lovely. The inside was spotless and had all the amenities for a very enjoyable stay. Very comfy beds! The owners were very welcoming. The cottage is set in their beautiful croft with a lovely outlook onto the harbour, Isle of Scalpay and Isle of Skye. We had a wonderful time and can't wait to return, a few days wasn't long enough! I can't recommend this place highly enough and Harris is incredible too!

“Another great visit to the best self catering house in Harris.”

This was our second trip to Croft Cottage and it won't be our last. We love this house. It is excellently located with stunning views, day and night, out to sea. Inside it is spacious and well appointed with everything you could possibly need - additional touches like providing a second fridge in the outhouse, picnic sets, hand washes and soaps etc. are so appreciated. The fantastic spa bath and sauna plus the high quality towels provided are great. The location is ideal - you are a short drive from many great walks (eg we climbed Clisham and Cleapabhal) and you are a short walk from Tarbert with its choice of restaurants and shops. The last great thing about the house are the owners - Alice and Patrick - who are the nicest people you could meet and always happy to help to make your stay the most enjoyable.

“Waht a fantastic place to stay!”
Reviewed 20 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

We found Croft Cottage though an internet search and what a wonderful find it was! The website described it all perfectly and we knew what wonderful facilities the cottage offers - everything has been thought of and the welcoming pack of goodies was a lovely touch - including a bottle of champagne and chocolates. We had two teenage boys and my elderly parents and there was plenty of space for us all. The fact that we all had our own bathroom was a real bonus. The downstairs bedroom and bathroom was ideal for my parents and the teenage boys also much enjoyed the spa bath!
The view from the cottage across to the Isle of Scalpay and Skye was magical and we never tired of looking at the ever changing light.
We were just sorry that we only had a week - Harris is beautiful and we would love to go back and staying at Croft Cottage really made our stay special.

“The best self catering accomodation on Harris”

I have stayed at Croft Cottage on numerous times whilst visiting Harris, as it is the perfect accommodation in many ways. The cottage itself is situated on a secluded croft and it's easy to hide away and not be disturbed. However it is only 2 minutes drive (or 10 minutes walk) from Tarbert, so it is convenient for shopping and visiting the various bars and restaurants (well 2 bars, 2 restaurants and a tea shop). If the weather is good, it's central location is perfect for heading out for walks and scenic drives. If the weather is not so good, it is a warm and snug place to hide out, read a book, listen to music, or watch the satellite TV. In addition a good internet connection is available for sharing all those holiday pictures with your friends. Regardless of the weather, another welcome feature after a long walk is the sauna and whirlpool bath available on the ground floor. Finish it all off with 3 double/twin bedrooms (2 en suite) and a smart, well equipped kitchen and it is a great place to stay.

“Simply perfect!”
Reviewed 20 August 2014 for a stay in August 2014

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at croft cottage. With great views and fab location, it was fantastic to return to the house after a day's sea kayaking and be able to look out over where we had been paddling. The owners are lovely - very hospitable, helpful and flexible, and made our stay very comfortable. The ease of correspondence during the booking and before arrival was efficient . Will definately be back!
