“Little gem of a place in a beautiful spot”
What a lovely wee cottage, with lovely furnishings, cosy (thanks for the wood-burner!) and compact, with breathtaking views. We come back year after year and hope to continue doing so. Well worth the money. 10/10.
Owner's reply: thank you so much it was great having you - the cottage was left perfect. see you next year - we hope Moran Taing calum
“Fantastic home from home”
We had a wonderful time at this cottage. It had everything we required, trivial pursuit was a great addition as was the wood burning stove! We had fantastic weather for most of the week which made our stsybeven more enjoyable. The beaches are stunning, our favourite was bostah beach which is not far from the cottage. We would highly recommend this cottage- hoping to come back next year.
“Great cottage, well equipped and comfortable”
The location was a little remote, but anybody who books a holiday in Great Bernera has to expect that! The facilities in the cottage are excellent and it was like a home from home. Everything was thought of - even down to binoculars on the windowsill for anyone interested in spotting wildlife. It was lovely to have the wood burner, but if you plan to use it, remember to find some small logs as the bid one were almost impossible to keep alight.
Owner's reply: Thank you for your comments.
“Excellent Hebridean Holiday”
Lovely homely cottage which had everything we needed. A lovely welcome pack greeted us on arrival and the owner, Calum, made courtesy calls to ensure everything was as it should be. We found it a great base for exploring the Isles of Lewis and Harris. Views from the cottage are beautiful. So many beautiful places to see and visit. You wont be disappointed....
Wonderful, comfortable cottage, complete with everything needed for a great holiday in a perfect location. The surrounding scenery is fantastic and quite wild, with the most beautiful Bosta Beach, which I heard described as 'paradise', just 10mins drive away. There are good walks close by and the Great Bernera Trail is worth doing, wear good boots because it is quite wet underfoot. Also the famous Callanish Stones are not far away. Although we never met the owner, he kept in touch and ensured we had everything required. Have had many self catering holidays but Harsgeir cottage was one of the best and would highly recommend it.
“Cosy well appointed rural cottage”
The cottage is located in a rural island location on a single track road with a pleasant scenic beach 4.5 miles away. It is attractive to any one who wants to get away from it (and nearest pub 45 mins drive). The cottage has a cosy feel about it with a well appointed kitchen, comfy beds and large duvets, ample towels and we felt very much t home.
“Beautiful cottage, outstanding scenery.”
Just returned from a wonderful weeks holiday staying at Harsgeir cottage on Great Bernera. The cottage was perfect and a great base for us to explore the island. The accomodation is excellent and situated in a beautiful area. If its peace and quiet you want this is perfect, skylarks and cuckoo's to wake you in the morning and excellent beaches for long walks with the dogs. The cottage is well appointed and has everything you will need for your stay, the welcome basket was a lovely touch and the neighbours brought round some fresh eggs !! We thoroughly recomend Hargeir view cottage.
“An Island Paradise”
We arrived as dusk was falling after a drive up from Dumbarton that morning. Calum, the Proprietor, had already contacted us to let us know the cottage was ready for us, and where we would find the key. The drive across to Bernera is breathtaking, and once on the island the last few miles of road slow you down to an ideal pace for life at Harsgeir View Cottage. We found the cottage straight away - look for the post box at the roadend. We were a bit worried that it would be difficult to warm the place up on that windy eve, but with a swift scan of the central heating instructions/directions and the flick of a switch, the place was toasty before the car was even unloaded. As well as the electric stove in the living room, the cottage has full central heating with a radiator in each room. The level of insulation must be really high, as it is harder to keep it cool enough than to keep it warm enough. The cottage is fully double glazed, and there was never a hint of draught once the hatches were battened. The cottage is fully modernised - the kitchen has twin oven and cooker hob, fridge/freezer, microwave, washer/dryer and dishwasher. There is also a cupboard full of gadgets and implements, and more pans than you would ever need. The cottage is clean and well decorated - there is plenty of cupboard and wardrobe space in the bedrooms, and the bathroom is clean and modern. As well as a digital TV/DVD, there is also free Wifi, which also supports UMA so that you can text and make mobile phone calls if your mobile signal is poor. There is also a landline phone in the cottage. Harsgeir View is well positioned to explore the small island of Great Bernera - the neighbours are friendly, and brought us fresh duck eggs on the eve of our arrival. There are wonderful sea views from virtually every window in the house, and there is a clear view to the north for when the Aurora are dancing. Stornoway is a drive of forty minutes away, and provisions/groceries can be found five minutes down the road at Hacklete. We stayed for three nights, and could have happily gone no further than the bridge back over to Lewis. We did take a couple of excursions to see a few friends and some of the many sights that Lewis has to offer, but if all you want is a break then you could quite easily fill a weekend at Harsgeir View Cottage. There is a lovely coastal walk up to Tobson with its small cove, and a further overland pathway to Bostadh, its beautiful beach with views out to Little Bernera Island and The Atlantic beyond. We found the cottage clean and tidy, and a lovely place to be. There is everything you need there - remember to take soap powder and dishwasher tabs, although there were some in the cupboard for us. The best part (bearing in mind it was still winter), was being able to get it warm and cosy quite quickly, and having the facilities to wash and dry our clothes in time for the next day. The worst bit was having to leave and come home. I will definitely return...
“Perfect place for peace”
Remote and tranquil, this well equipped, comfortable cottage offers the perfect sanctuary from city life. Ideal for lazing around with a book, gazing at the impressive views or a base for exploring the treasures of the islands. As frequently returning customer I cannot recommend it enough.
“A lovely, very comfortable, well-equipped cottage in a beautiful situation.”
Harsgeir View Cottage is a lovely cottage - very comfortable, well-equipped. It is in a beautiful situation which is very quiet and quite remote. There are lovely walks on the island and superb sunsets from the kitchen window. This cottage is ideal for a quiet, relaxing holiday. It is also well-situated for touring Lewis: it is very near the standing stones at Calanais,, a lovely drive away from the eautiful sands at Uig, and is a 35 minute drive from Stornoway - for shops, provisions and the ferry. We can thoroughly recommend Harsgeir View Cottage to those who, like us, enjoy a quiet, relaxing holiday, and we will certainly go back!
