This property is ideally located for a romantic break away, and benefits from a 2-person sauna and Jacuzzi bath..

A stunning natural stone and turf roofed single-storey detached cottage built into the hillside reflecting an ancient neolithic design with breathtaking beach views, and with access to a family friendly beach less than 110 yards from the door.

There are many outdoor activities nearby, such as hill walking, surfing, kite surfing, fishing (Apr-Oct, licence required), golf, wildlife watching, boat trips (including to the World Heritage Site of St Kilda), diving, sea kayaking and cycling. The landscape and history of the Outer Hebrides, together with the hospitality of its people, provide a wonderful escape from the pressures of modern life and offer an active or relaxing family holiday or the perfect romantic retreat. The holiday property benefits from a 2-person sauna as well as having a Jacuzzi bath in the en-suite of the twin bedroom. There is a whisky distillery within 550 yards and the local community shop is only 3 miles away.

Guest Comments

"Superb!"

Alex, August 2021

"Fantastic cottage with unbelievable views. Very quiet with great walks on the doorstep and easy access to the rest of the Island and Harris."

Frank, June 2021

"What can you say about this amazing home on the beach other than it's worth every penny. We stayed for a week in May and even when the weather was dreary spending your day looking at the seascape was worth it. The property was super clean, stocked superbly well and better than the brochure in every way. We will be returning."

Carol, June 2021

"Honestly, a fabulous place to stay. We would highly recommend."

Gaelle, January 2021

"We took advantage of the lockdown situation and decided to take holidays in Lewis, which we wouldnt normally do, we would usually take ourselves abroad! Silly us! It was our first proper remote, self catering holiday and we were a little dubious but this house, and it’s location, is simply stunning.It is remote but that’s exactly what we were looking for! there is an extremely well stocked community shop 5 minutes drive away. Due to Covid the uig sands restaurant and the abhain dearg distillery were shut, these are both extremely close to the property but we didn’t need them! The kitchen is so well equipped that it’s a pleasure to cook in. The beach in front of the property is world class and the view is constantly changing. Coming back after a cold, windy walk on the beach to the sauna and jacuzzi bath is a real treat! We were also worried that we would be stuck for things to do while we were there but we could easily have done another week! The whole island, as well as the isle of Harris, is absolutely beautiful. We enjoyed walks every day (even in Nov!) and got out and explored! The search for Mangersta Bothy was an adventure and well worth the effort! I have nothing bad to say about this place, I didn’t want to leave! The views are constantly changing and we even enjoyed the stormy weather wegot towards the end of the week. What a place to experience a strong north westerly wind! There is an abundance of wildlife right on the doorstep. We spotted golden eagles over the house, a family of deer in the front garden, lots of seals and seabirds and we even heard of a sighting of a pod of 15 sperm whales off the coast! we drove to the butt of Lewis and did the lighthouse walk in the hopes of seeing them! The house has binoculars provided so it’s easy to spend ages spotting out the window.We simply loved our stay, can’t recommend highly enough. George was really helpful and a really nice guy to deal with. They have created something special with Beach Bay Cottage! We will be back"

"An outstanding and well equipped property, stunning views and beautiful scenery and beaches, loved it."

Ailsa, November 2020

"This is a magical beach cottage. My husband and I had the most wonderful time here. The view is stunning, ever changing, and we could have stared at it all day. The location is quiet, with a restaurant nearby (although it is not open in the winter months) and a great community shop which has everything you need. The owner of the cottage is brilliant (very welcoming and genuinely helpful). One of the best cottages we have ever staying in. Simply outstanding."

Katherine, November 2020

"Fabulous location, stunning house. Thoroughly recommended"

Phil, October 2020

"This cottage was without doubt the best place we have ever stayed in. The cottage is beautifully fitted out with everything you could possibly need to enjoy your stay. The views from the lounge window are just mind blowing. We spent hours just sitting and enjoying the ever changing sea view. The peace and tranquility were just what we needed during these strange times.There are many walks straight from the cottage and there are interesting places to visit on Lewis & Harris ( although sadly due to Covid all visitor centres etc were closed. )The local community shop is extremely well stocked and their delivery service means you can arrive to a well stocked fridge & freezer with no need to shop en route. The restaurant at Uig Sands is excellent and the Scallop Shack is great if you want to pick up some to cook yourself!We can’t wait to return to this amazing place!"

Philip, October 2020

"Beach Bay Cottage is excellent with stunning views but is in a fairly isolated location. The cottage is well equipped and is very spacious and comfortable. If you haven’t stocked up in Stornoway then there is a local community shop, which is likely to have most things you will need, including petrol and diesel, about 10 minute drive from the cottage. Wildlife spotting from the cottage was excellent. May be seen as a bit pricey if it’s just the two of you but worth treating yourselves."

Donald, October 2020

"A stunning location and a fantastic property, and kitted out with everything you could possibly need.I low rated the local amenities only because of the Covid situation made some of them closed."

Gerry, August 2020

"Lovely cottage and amazing location with healing qualities."

Brian, August 2020

"A Fantastic house in a truly stunning location. We were made to feel very welcome. The owners were very responsive and gave lots of local insight. A magical and memorable holiday and we would love to go back again. We would highly recommend."

Paul, August 2020
