Just had a wonderful week staying in Cuckoo Cottage overlooking Luskentyre Beach - a more lovely setting is hard to imagine. We walked on the beach before breakfast and most nights at sunset, and never got over our sense of wonder. Cuckoo Cottage is very comfortable and well equipped. We particularly appreciated the milk, butter, bread and bacon which had been left in the fridge for us on our arrival, plus the packs of nice bath/shower products. This was all part of the extra thought that has gone into providing for the comfort and enjoyment of the people renting the cottage. There was always plenty of hot water and both a shower and bath in separate rooms. Lots of interesting guide books on Harris and Lewis to browse through as well as the detailed information pack. We found Cuckoo Cottage a great base for exploring Harris and further afield. We had a day exploring the west coast of Lewis and were lucky enough to have a trip to St Kilda with Sea Harris. We recommend Croft 36 in Northton for homemade takeaway meals and snacks when feeling lazy after a long day out - but pick the food up early in the day as it quickly sells out. Croft's owner does deliver sometimes. Just a little way beyond Croft 36, The Temple Cafe serves excellent food and is a great place to eat, as is Skoon Art Cafe on the east coast of Harris. The Anchor in Leverburgh was also good and we had dinner at Scarista House for a special birthday celebration which was a wonderful experience. A week was not long enough and we can't wait to return!
Excellent location and a great stay in a lovely cottage. Having stayed last year we knew it would be good and the cottage was as clean, tidy and well equipped as previously. Although maybe a little maintenance of minimal things is required,like stuff lying around the back of the house, a proper washing line, back door handle loose, kitchen tap leaking. These were very minor things all most likely the result of a busy season and as the cottage is otherwise immaculate and well maintained, I have no doubt that they will be rectified. Yet again a very pleasant and enjoyable stay in a perfect location for Luskentyre Beach.
