House Rules

We would be most grateful if guests could leave the house as tidy as possible with all dishes washed and put away and the fire tidied out before they depart. Departure time is 11 am and we need guests to honour this as we have regular guests; replacement guests often arrive the same day as a departure and our housekeeper needs adequate time to be able to service the house properly. We expect guests to respect our neighbours and keep noise to a minimum as there are private residents residing nearby. Sunday is, according to tradition, a very peaceful day on the island and there are limited services and amenities available outwith the main town of Stornoway. Local people adhere to the tradition of keeping Sunday as a day of rest.

Entry time is any time after 3.30 pm.

Unfortunately we are unable to greet guests as we do not live on the Isle of Lewis. Access arrangements are explained when booking is made and deposit paid. Detailed directions are also provided then.

Isabella's house is beautiful and the location fantastic, very handy for Stornaway (shops, pubs and the ferry) but also for seeing the rest of the island. The house is decorated to a high standard and you quickly feel at home in it. Walks to the local beaches from the house were easy and very beautiful. I thoroughly recommend this as a place to stay.

This is a fantastic place to stay - convenient for Stornoway and local beaches . The house is beautifully decorated and very comfortable. It was a good size for four adults and a toddler. It was well equipped for young children.

Great place, thoroughly enjoyed our stay. About seven miles from Stornaway which created the best of all worlds. Lovely beaches nearby and a great spot from which to explore both Lewis and Harris. Would happily recommend this property.

This is a fantastic cottage in an ideal location - only 15 minutes drive from Stornoway. The cottage has everything you need to make it a home from home. The cottage manual was full of information about the island which gave us lots of ideas when planning our days. Isabella and Alan have obviously put a lot of thought into the experience they want their guests to have and it shows. We had a wonderful, relaxing week and will hopefully come back again soon!

Isabella's cottage is lovely - both in its quiet but accessible location and in its wonderful decor and layout. I had a brilliant week exploring Lewis from here and really appreciated how nice it was to return each evening to somewhere that felt so homely. I especially loved the little touches around the house (the local artwork, the quirky wallpaper, the radios in every bedroom, the cushions) and the welcome goodies too! The house manual had many fantastic recommendations of places to go, sights to see, shops to visit and restaurants to eat at but I couldn't fit them all in to one week... so I guess I'll just have to come back another time!

Loved the croft house. The decor was lovely and everything we could have ever needed was provided. Loved the ewes and lambs for our neighbours. I seriously could have stayed on forever ! It was the perfect location, out of town but within striking distance and being close to two wonderful beaches was wonderful. Thank you so, so much !

My parents are both from the Isle of Lewis and although born there I grew up on mainland Scotland. We bought the croft house a few years ago in a dilapidated state as it had not been lived in for 20 years with the idea that we could have it as a family bolthole for my parents, my brother's family and our own and to rent it out when we weren't using it. Until recently I worked full time as a lawyer but now look after our two little girls on mainland Scotland. We love encouraging people to come and enjoy the beauty of the Western Isles, particularly Lewis and Harris where the beaches and scenery are second to none.
