We had a fabulous holiday at Burnvale. The house is central to most attractions and places of interest.
Burnvale is a very clean spacious house with no adjacent neighbours.
The owners Gillian and John made contact with us before and during our holiday to offer advice on travel and things / places of interest, they both made us feel very welcome.
Everything we wanted was at the house from TV wifi to wet suits and fishing rods.
The holiday was relaxing with lots of family time.
Burnvale is ideally located for visiting the many fabulous beaches on the west coast of Lewis. Stornoway is only 25 mins away too, which is very handy for shopping. Callanish stones are only 20 mins down the coast and the same road eventually leads you to Harris - a long drive but beautiful and really worth doing. But the best thing about the location is the sunsets you can watch from the kitchen window or the garden at the rear of the house. Absolutely stunning.
The house itself is very well appointed, clean and very comfortable. It's very quiet too, making for a really peaceful night's sleep.
And the owners are friendly and welcoming too.
We will be back, for sure.
Just returned from a weeks stay at Burnvale, the cottage is perfect, so comfortable a real home from home. Booking has been a pleasure, so much help throughout, thank you.
The views are spectacular, wish my kitchen window had this outlook. Location is ideal for exploring the island, really close to a lot of the must see places i.e. standing stones, blackhouses, we even took a run to Uig, well worth a visit and up to Port of Ness.
Topping off our trip was a sighting of dolphins during ferry crossing back to Ullapool.
Three of us stayed 5 nights at Burnvale. The house was beautifully kept with everything you could need. We were touched by the information provided and the welcome pack of black pudding and wine. We had a wonderful time exploring Lewis and Harris, especially the iron age houses and beaches. The weaver nearby was fascinating to visit, giving a real sense of the islands culture. Only difficulty was having enough hot water for three, though we tried putting the hot water on for extra perhaps we needed to wait longer for it to heat up. All in all a lovely stay. Many thanks.
Clean, comfortable accommodation with every possible thing thought of. The pristine beach a short walk away is a delight and there are walks you can do straight from the doorstep. We would stay here again definitely!
