Self-Catering Reviews

Mr Mcmurray
August 2020
View from the cottage was amazing.. Cottage had everything we needed. My wife was a bit concerned sleeping upstairs as if there was a fire downstairs the only way out would be down the stairs through the fire.

Enjoyable break.. The cottage was just what we wanted for our break. Liz the owner respected our privacy. Looking round the island of Skye was a lovely experience even with covid-19 restrictions in force. We would go back again.

A fabulous little cottage with spectacular views.. The cottage was warm, very very clean & cosy We didn't get to meet the owner because we stayed during the Covid-19 pandemic. But Liz had catered for all eventualities, the little extras left like bathroom & kitchen products were a godsend while the supermarket shelves were empty. Thank you very much indeed We managed to tour around the beautiful island & really enjoyed our time there, even though everywhere was closed Looking out over the bay at night with a little 'night-cap' watching the sun go down, through the lovely big window was something we will never forget We will definitely return in the future & hopefully stay in this beautiful cottage again

Very comfortable, clean and with lovely views.. Great base for exploring the area. Liz the host was accessible but still provided privacy - perfect!! Would love to return.

I really enjoyed my stay at Seadrift Cottage and I was warmly welcomed by Liz who gave me some information about the cottage, the area and the local facilities.. With that huge picture window in the front room affording the sweeping view over the bay, it provides an opportunity to watch the Black Guillemots and Skuas wheelling and diving above the sea directly in front of the cottage. Everything you think you'll need is provided in the cottage and the internet speed is fast and consistent. Bring your Firestick TV dongle etc and you'll be sorted for evening entertainment. It's ideally placed to visit some fantastic scenery on the island and you won't be disappointed. Make sure you bring a camera of some kind, as you'll most certainly want to document your visit. There's a really well stocked shop a short distance south and what surprised me was that the fuel cost to fill up my car on the island was only a few pennies per litre more than I pay at home. Every corner you go round in your car will give you another wonderful view and I defy anyone to go away from the island without feeling relaxed and having a huge grin on their face. I visit Scotland on a regular basis and I have to say that Skye has become my new favourite, I hope to return as regularly as possible.

We’ve just had a fabulous week at this small but perfectly formed cottage.. The view and tranquility of the location is priceless. It has everything you need for a home from home experience and a lovely comfortable bed. Our dog was made very welcome too by the friendly lady owner which is very important to us.
Mr Woessner
March 2019
This is a wonderful place to relax and enjoy the beautiful and dramatic landscape of the Isle of Skye.. The apartment was very clean, well equipped and warm. The big window offers a fanatstic view right from the sofa, and upstairs there are skylights so you can see the stars when you lie in bed. The owner is very nice and cares for her guests without being obtrusive. I definitely do recommend this place.

We were very pleased with the location, a beautiful view both day and night very clear night skies.. Very good to come back to a warm cosy cottage after a full days walking, although we had exceptionally good weather and stayed out as long as possible.
Mrs Smith
October 2018
The location of the cottage was amazing even when the weather was bad the views via the picture window, we watched the birds including geese, buzzards and even an eagle flew past the window and landed close enough for us to see.. Walking on the beach we watched the seals and managed to find the dinosaur foot prints,amazing we also went fishing off the rocks with some good catches. Overall it has been a great experience and I am sure we will visit again.

Fantastic week spent in Seadrift cottage, it has every comfort you could possibly want, with a fantastic panoramic window overlooking Staffin bay .. Liz is very friendly and welcoming .
Mr Hendry
August 2018
On arrival we were met by Liz the owner who made us feel extremely welcome and she is also extremely helpful with her local knowledge.. The property is 5 Star standard. The two seater settee which faces the picture window overlooking Staffin Bay/Island is a de-stress settee. One could sit there all day just watching the wildlife. We thoroughly enjoyed our time there and would highly recommend this property which is more than adequate for a couple and a dog! Thanks to Liz the owner for her advices and friendly demeanour ! Wonderful accommodation at a very reasonable price.
Mr Kay
June 2018
Owner Liz was lovely - not intrusive but always available for help & advice if needed.. Very dog-friendly with an enclosed rear garden - useful due to proximity to a fast main road. Bed was top notch & very comfy. Property was really clean & whilst small was ideal for a couple with enough space to stretch out. We had spectacular weather all week but still spent many hours looking out at the view of the mountains & sea from the fantastic feature window !
Mrs Smith
May 2018
Seadrift cottage is an ideal place to relax and feel life contentment.. The view from the lounge picture window is a wonder to behold with the ever changing colours of the sea, mountains and the sky that lifts your spirit. The owner Liz is both helpful and friendly without being intrusive. Highly recommended.
Mr Hotston

Seadrift was the perfect holiday cottage for two.. Everything we needed and views to die for from the windows. 5 star and we would go back tomorrow if we could.

My husband and I spent a week here. Beautiful location. The cottage was fabulous and had everything that anyone would ever need. It was beautifully decorated. I would recommend any couple to visit here. It was very private and the owner gave us complete privacy whilst we were there. Will definitely visit again. 5*

Breathtaking views of the sea.. Cozy and warm. A little small but ok for holidays. Very comfortable bed, sofas a bit stiff. In general, a very pleasant stay. Very good washing machine in the bathroom which made it easy to keep clothes clean hike after hike. All cleaning products provided so it’s also easy to keep the place nice and clean. Shower has amazing power, which is most pleasant after long hikes in the wind and rain. The view is certainly the main reason to stat at this cottage. Waking up every morning to such beauty is amazing.

Charming cottage with stunning views.. Tasteful decor and good quality fixtures and fittings. Lovely comfy bed.

My 2nd visit to this cottage & was as perfect as the 1st.. Great location, great views, peaceful & dark nights for star gazing. The cottage as before has all you need, it is very comfortable, warm & well laid out. The cottage was immaculately clean & all the pots & pans you'd need on holiday. The bed was extremely comfortable & sleeping at night with the window open, you fall asleep to the sound of the ocean waves rolling in on Staffin Beach. Location gives you easy location to the whole island & some as expected, sensational scenery. I will go back again in 2019.
Mrs Whyte

Accommodation was perfect.. Had everything that anyone would need on holiday. Perfect!
Mr Wolf-Root

This cottage was the perfect size for two people and spotlessly clean, with a comfy bed and the window was everything it promises in the pictures!
Mrs Paget
February 2018
Only comment of the area is that there is no local pub (we thought that there was one a mile away) and that in winter cafes / coffee shops on the island are mainly closed.. Otherwise it's great!
January 2018
We stayed in this cottage in October 2017 for a week. What can I say apart from WOW!! The views out to sea are absolutely breathtaking and you can sit for a very long time just amazed by the changing weather!! It is dog friendly and and ideally situated on the island for visiting the north and south. Liz is very friendly and respects your privacy while staying in the cottage. We spent a memorable week here with Poppy, our dog, and we will definitely be returning again. The picture I have put on is of our dog having the time of her life on the beach that is visible from the cottage. Think her face says it all... what a wonderful place. The night sky views are out of this world.. such bright stars!! Thank you so much, Liz, for a wonderful holiday.
January 2018
Wonderful property, ideal for a winter holiday, with the picture window providing dramatic views in both good and bad weather..

Mrs Sutherland

Beautiful scenery and a lovely cottage to return to in the evening to sit and watch the view from the window.
May 2016
I was lucky enough to stay here in April 2016 and the first thing that's hard to miss is the view. An absolutely amazing view out to sea that kept me entertained for hours. Liz and Angus were great hosts and we were made to feel very welcome. The cottage is very cosy and in a great location to tour the rest of the Isle. Highly recommended.
April 2016
We had a warm welcome by the owners. The Cottage was very good, quiet and very well decorated. The landscape was fantastic. A place to relax. There is a fantastic view from the sofa you can enjoy for hours.

Superb place; compact but very well thought out with everything you need for self catering and comfort. The owners were nice. Fantastic views and situated in a perfect location to explore Skye. This place is a little Gem and we would love to return here.
Mrs Doggett

Mrs Robinson

Beautiful setting with stunning views. Cottage at Seadrift was a home from home with everything you would need for a perfect break. Location was excellent for visiting places of interest in the northern part of Skye. Owners were friendly and helpful.
Mrs Ward
November 2015
The cottage was exactly as advertised, clean, warm and cosy with a great vista from the huge lounge window and the skylights in the bedroom gave a wonderful view of the stars at night. An initial warm welcome from the hosts (who then left us to our own devices which was just how we liked it). The two village shops were sufficient for all our needs, with very friendly helpful staff. The cottage was very close to the beach and there were also great walks from the doorstep. Skye is a magnificently beautiful Isle.
Mr McKie
November 2015
We loved staying at this property. It was perfect for a quiet week in what is simply the loveliest part of the world! The local scenery was fantastic, particularly the Quiraing. The nearby shops in the village had everything we needed and Portree isn't too far away either. We went on several day-trips across Skye and had a brilliant time. The owner was a fantastic host, he was great to talk to and very helpful. He lent me his binoculars which was really kind. I would definitely, 100% stay here again.

Visited Skye for a week for one week in the beginning of November. We were very lucky with the weather. Cottage is well located near many tourist places in the North of Skye, beautiful views from the cottage so you feel you do not want to even go anywhere. Cottage is quite spacious even that it looks small on photos.
Mrs Wadsworth
October 2015
This was our second visit to this cottage and third visit to Skye and both lived up to our expectations. This is a lovely cottage and the owners are very welcoming and helpful. The cottage is well equipped, cosy and comfortable with wonderful views as you would expect on this beautiful island. We will be back to stay in this cottage again!
Mrs Goatman

Anna P

een uitstekend ingerichte, complete vakantiewoning voor 2 personen. Prachtig uitzicht over de baai van Staffin helaas was het internet de hele week niet beschikbaar. Iets wat volgens de eigenaar wel vaker eens gebeurd.
Mrs Coates
May 2015
This was probably the best cottage we have ever stayed in. The location was superb. The view from the huge picture window overlooking Staffin Bay and The Quirang just took our breath away. Even on wet days the view was amazing. It was a lovely warm, comfortable cottage, a real home from home. If I had to rate it out of 10 on a home from home basis I would give Cottage at Seadrift 12 out of 10 because we have not got that view from our home!
Mrs Smith
April 2015
The cottage is of an extremely high spec and the owners are extremely helpful but not intrusive. An excellent break and outstanding view from the cottage.
Mr Robinson
April 2015
The cottage is in an excellent location with great views of the sea and Staffin Island. The owners were very friendly and non obtrusive and the cottage had everything we needed. In the daytime we never stopped looking at the views and at night time we loved to see the stars at night whilst lying in bed.
Mr Greenwood

This cottage is probably one of the best on Skye. It's very well equipped, very warm, cosy and extremely comfortable. The views are fabulous and the location is great for touring this amazing island. The owners were very welcoming and should be very proud of this cottage.

It was the best equipped accommodation that we have ever stayed in. It was very comfortable and well presented. The views were spectacular and the added bonus was being able to see the stars when lying in bed.

A nice, comfortable, well-equipped cottage in a beautiful location with very helpful owners.
September 2014
My wife and I have just spent a week on the Isle of Skye based in this delightful location with magnificent sea views right from the cottage window! The cottage is not only advantageously situated, but also extensively equipped; with everything you need for self-catering right at your finger tips. The views, the peace and the refinement all add up to make this an excellent stay for any couple; and if that is not enough, there is the super king-sized bed with the views of the stars overhead! The landlord is also a very good source of information about the wildlife on the island, having lived in that vicinity all of his life.
Mrs Light

The property was excellent with spectacular views. The bed was very large and comfortable and everything you require was provided.

The house was absolutely amazing. Very cosy and practical. Everything was clean and tidy. The view from the windows was stunning. We spent hours just watching the scenery. The landlords were very helpful and nice.
Mrs Anderson
December 2013
The accommodation was brilliant. The bedroom had 2 windows in the roof so you could look at the stars in bed, and being able to see the meteor shower like this was stunning. The bed itself was the most comfortable I have ever slept on. The Bath was so deep, it was luxury. The sofa was really comfortable, and the views were breathtaking from it. You can park right next to the door.
Mrs Volkaviciute

Liked everything especially the view from the window. Nice cottage in the amazing place.
