- Very Good
Cuckoo Cottage was the perfect size for us ( family of 4) and the location a stone's throw away from Luskentyre beach couldn't have been better!! This was our first visit to Harris and we loved it. My husband, a keen landscape photographer, was in his element and the kids loved the beach and the horses that lived there. Cuckoo Cottage was spotless and it was clear that a lot of thought had gone into it, everything that we needed was there. One small area of improvement would be to tidy up the tv cables, but everything worked fine. Looking forward to visiting again!
“Weeks stayed at Cuckoo Cottage”
My in-laws booked Cuckoo cottage for my partner & I, as they go to Harris every year (this being my first). Cuckoo cottage was everything we needed and more! Great location with a stunning beach just a short walk from the front door. The cottage itself was well equipped with cooking equipment & utensils to washing facilities. The week we had was fantastic weather wise so with the heating going on auto times it was not needed but this could be simply turned off. Overall, we were both extremely happy with our stay and even tried to complete a 1000 piece jigsaw in-between things but were unable to. We left this out hoping the next guests to Cuckoo cottage would give it a go but forgot to leave our email addresses for a picture. So if anyone does manage to complete this PLEASE LET US KNOW! Alex & Steven
Owner's reply: Dear Alex and Steven, Thank you for your lovely review. Willie and I currently live in Seattle and a review like this means a lot to both us and the team of talented people who live in Harris and keep our wee house ship shape and trouble free. Cheers! We look forward to your return visit.
“Lovely Location but the cottage has problems that need to be addressed”
Cuckoo cottage is very cosy for two and the location is stunning and very quiet. However there are some issues that need to be rectified. On arrival on a cold wet and windy 'summer' evening the heating was not working. The were no details of who to contact for this eventuallity. My husband eventually managed to get the boiler going again - not a good start. We are not convinced however, that the underfloor heating ever worked. The cold tap in the kitchen leaked badly throughout our stay saturating the wooden work surfaces. The doors to the downstairs shower room badly need oiling. The wooden floor on the LHS of the bedroom needs replacing as it creaks dreadfully. The 'snug' needs some more comfortable furniture. The windows in the snug and the kitchen need to be larger in order to benefit from the magnificient views which you cannot see when sat down. There are insufficent pans and dishes for cooking. There is nowhere local to eat so cooking is essential. On the plus side the bed and shower are excellent and it is a bonus to have a bath in such a small cottage.
“Beautifully designed cottage in the most stunning location”
We had a wonderful two weeks staying in Cuckoo Cottage. It's location is perfect, each morning I could go for walks on the beach (with new born baby) and my husband could do a good training run up & down Beinn Dhubh. Even during the downpours you could watch the ever changing light from the comfort of the cosy sitting room & kitchen. It is the place to unwind and relax. All the finishing touches from the Cole & Lewis soaps to having many comfy nooks and crannies to read books in, just made it for us. Plus we were very grateful to there being a few useful sundries in stock before we made it to the shops. A very spoiling time, we'd love to return soon.
