“A Little Slice of Heaven”
This is a beautiful holiday home with stunning views in a perfect location. We were made to feel so welcome by the owner and the property felt very homey and relaxing. I would love to recommend this holiday rental to everyone I know but I'm also a little selfish and a part of me would love to keep this heavenly hideaway a secret. If you are thinking of renting this my advice would be go for it, I promise that you will not regret it!!!
“Peace and quiet coupled with creature comforts in a glorious spot.”
Lovely cottage, very well appointed, warm and comfortable, a credit to Tracey and Alastair. Close to village, road and ferry terminal. Seals, ponies, sheep and seagulls all in evidence. Stunning views - when the sun shines! Only drawback is the hundred yard or so walk to the cottage from the car park. In the teeth of Hebridean wind and rain this short distance can leave one very wet and windblown. Great place, great people, great holiday.
“Wonderful, secluded, beautiful cottage”
Fantastic location - handy for Tarbert & the ferry, but felt a million miles away from everyday life. The cottage is in a beautiful location, with views out to scalpay & Skye. Tracey has kitted out the cottage to such a high degree - everything from the welcome hamper of essentials (& prosecco) to the amazing reclining sofa (we're getting one!). We've returned from our trip refreshed but itching to get back there!
“Peace, comfort and wonderful views”
We have wanted to visit Harris for a long time and finally got round to doing so this year. In choosing Red House we feel incredibly lucky because it 's set in such a glorious location and whilst feeling wonderfully remote is in fact really handy for Tabart and the ferry. The cottage itself is incredibly well equipped and furnished to a very high standard. The mezzanine area in particular was a delight and from there we were able to watch heron, seals and on one occasion, a pair of golden eagles.(No kidding.) We only booked for the one week but left wishing we had booked for longer and promising to return again next year. It's would be difficult to see how anyone would feel otherwise after only a weeks stay in Red House.
“Perfect get away from it all hideaway”
Beautiful cottage in lovely location. Well equipped and comfortable. Great for wildlife spotting. Tracie and Alisdair have done a great job on this cottage and were very nice hosts. Can't wait to go back.
