Another lovely stay on Holy Island at Sally's cottage. As before a welcoming pack of fresh bread, flowers, biscuits, tea/coffee, milk and a much needed bottle of wine. The cottage is comfortable and everything you need is there. The island is a perfect place to stay to unwind and re charge the batteries and the comforts that welcome you at Sally's makes the whole experience even more pleasurable. A huge thank you to Sally's owners. We will be back

What a fantastic place, difficult to explain the feeling of being on the Island , you really need to go there to get it. Of course when you do get there being in a fabulous cottage that caters for everything is a huge plus. As soon as you arrive at Sally's Cottage you know you chose the right place...a sense of being quite smug at having found such a brilliant location yourself in the heart of the community.....although everyone who arrives at Sally's probably thinks like that.
The cottage provides everything you could possibly need and every detail is geared towards providing you with the island experience and although it was December it was snug and welcoming....Go there... guaranteed that you will just love it.

This is a great cottage, immaculate with superb facilities. It has a lovely garden to the rear. It is tastefully decorated with a homely feel.
The Island has a lovely atmosphere when the tide is in and the mainland is cut off. Treat yourself to a bottle of wine on the "Heugh" which overlooks the tidal inlet. It's a short walk from the cottage and you can sit in the ancient battlements watching the seals and other wildlife only a few yards away.

I was really impressed by this cottage. It was right in the centre of the village, immaculately clean, tastefully decorated and there were plenty books, games and DVD's if you didn't fancy going out. The owner was really welcoming, and the whole island had a real sense of community. The beaches were huge and almost empty. The highlight was being watched by the seal's paddling. Great cottage and great holiday.

We stayed at Sallys Cottage for a long weekend. Can't recommend the cottage and the owners enough. Excellent acoomodation and lovely little extra touches - home made treats and a little alcohol to get the break off to a good start! The cottage is even nicer than the photo's. The garden which looks really small in the photo's is large and sunny throughout the day -a real added bonus.
Great coffee shop next door and lovely restaurant on Holy Island (Bean Goose), We had a lovely quiet and relaxing time- just what we needed.

Great balance of the owners being available to help out with advice but also excellent privacy. Very good standards of bedding/cleanliness etc. We will definitley be going back to Sallys Cottage.
