  • "A beautiful and comfortable house in a fantastic location."

    Reviewed by Julie5.0Mar 2024

  • "We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Penisula Cottage and are dreaming of coming back."

    The location and views are excellent and the home immaculate and well appointed with everything we needed. The owners were welcoming and responsive, which was appreciated. There was a glitch with the fireplace and the owners stopped by to try and correct it. I appreciated and enjoyed the beautiful eggs - and the milk that were in the refrigerator when we arrived and that the hot tub was hot. I love a hot hot tub. The only thing I might have changed is that the mattress was a bit firm for me. I prefer a softer mattress to sleep on.

  • "Property was ok but disappointed with the area it was in which looked very run down."

    Nice evening views over the sea (when it didn’t rain!) but had to travel out of Stornaway to reach nice places. Would not recommend as would not recommend Stornaway as a place to stay. Single bathroom was a nuisance with 4 of us staying. Minimal crockery eg only 6 mugs. Looked forward to using hot tub but changed our minds when saw it was in a pretty horrible place in a back yard. Disappointed with this accommodation.

    Beautiful location. Sunsets several evenings, walks along the beach from the house.

  • "Great holiday cottage in a great location."

    Was great waking up every morning looking out to the sea. The cottage was in good condition and had everything that we needed for our stay. Great location near to Stornoway and good base to explore Lewis and Harris.

  • "A fantastic holiday cottage in an excellent location for exploring Lewis and Harris."

    The cottage was spotlessly clean, well maintained and had everything we needed and more for a great stay. The beds were most comfortable, probably the most comfortable beds we’ve ever had in a holiday cottage (and hotel for that matter!). The hot tub was also a great addition to enjoy at the end of a busy day!

    Will definitely recommend. The details of what was available was brilliant.

  • "Peninsula Cottage was perfect for us."

    The accommodation is exactly as advertised and was prepared to a very high standard for our arrival. The house and kitchen are very well equipped. The location is ideal - secluded enough to feel very relaxed (great sunset views) but just ten minutes from the town centre. All the must see sites are within driving distance. We would return in the future.

  • "I've spent 8 days at the cottage in February 2022 and enjoyed every single one."

    The cottage is amazing and there is everything you could need and more. Beautiful view on the ocean just a few meters away from the big glas door. Peaceful, warm, confortable. I nedeed some time to relax and I did it in a luxury way. I would certainly come back

  • "We have looked at Peninsula a few times but never managed to book it before as it is very popular ."

    It is a fantastic property with big opening decking doors to bring the world in !! The view from here across the bay is excellent and the sunsets and sunrises are spectacular. The property is in a good position for touring Lewis. Everything is spotless and well presented with all the things you would want...Well worth a visit

  • "We have just returned from a week in the Peninsula Cottage , we had a lovely time , the cottage was lovely and very welcoming , we also made great use of the hot tub ."

    We managed to go to some of the lovely beaches that you have. My friends and I hope to come back in the near future , Carmen and John were most helpful with anything we asked about . This made our stay in their cottage excellent , nothing was too much trouble. This was 5* luxury and a very relaxing week.

    Perfect place to stay, myself husband and 4 year old had our first holiday away together without 18 and 17 year old other children!. Was lovely to spend time together in such luxurious but welcoming surroundings. Thoroughly recommend to others, helpful hosts but not in your face - perfect. Hot tub is genius

  • "Peninsula, what a spectacular location."

    My wife and I spent the weekend for our wedding anniversary. It was perfect, the cottage was open plan, very warm and welcoming. It had amazing views of the sea, the beach which was a few minutes walk away plus I could see little lambs bouncing about in the fields out the back. We had a BBQ and then we relaxed and enjoyed a jacuzzi at 10 O' clock at night what a dream....... Beds are so comfy, best nights sleep. Well decorated, everything that you would expect from a 5 Star plus more. We enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend this cottage; it was a memorable holiday. See you next year!

  • "We stayed here for 2 weeks at the end of 2014, arriving just before the 'weather bomb' hit."

    We loved this cottage (and the island) - it is immaculately clean and well equipped - it looked brand new. Carmen and John were brilliant and let us know that they were on hand if needed but weren't intrusive, and I loved that they delivered a blanket and some hot chocolate when the power went out. We left feeling revitalised and with plans to return...

  • "Penisula Cottage was lovely and very well equipped."

    The location was fantastic with two beautiful beaches just steps from the cottage and beautifuls views from the living room and bedroom. It was quiet and felt remote but with all the amenities of Stornaway close to hand. We would love to return as we did not manage to see all the sights and the cottage was a perfect base for exploring.

  • "We have enjoyed staying at Peninsula Cottage very much."

    The house is very well appointed and we appreciated all commodities and the modern and clean design. The garden is also well tended. The hot tub felt like a reward after a day out exploring Lewis in not so favourable weather. The settings and views are very peaceful but close enough to town to go out dining or shopping on instant decision. We would highly recommend the cottage to anyone planning to stay in Lewis and would rent it again, should we come back to the Outer Hebrides. Our experience with LHH has also been a very good one; we'll sure look for other LHH managed properties when planning for a trip. Please, forward our comments to the owners. We would like to thank them and LHH for helping make our holiday a very positive and memorable experience.

  • "We had a wonderful time on the Isle of Lewis and staying in this lovely sea-side cottage!"

    ! What a relaxing week filled with wonderful sites and peaceful evenings! The property was more than I imagined and I would highly recommend it to anyone staying in the Isle of Lewis. The location was great, close enough to town for everything, but far enough away and secluded to enjoy the peaceful views and relax. We had absolutely no complaints and would love to stay here again!

The property

Stornoway 4.6 miles.

Surrounded by beautiful sandy beaches and rugged countryside, Peninsula Cottage overlooks a beautiful local beach.

Nestled into the coastline of Stornoway, Isle of Lewis, this amazingly refurbished property offers the perfect getaway for a family or group of adults.

Greeted by the fresh sea breeze, you will find yourself outside this beautifully renovated cottage, noticing how huge windows and clean white paint bring a contemporary touch to the cottage.

Park your car in the convenient off-road parking or garage, and unpack easily, utilising the storage provided in the garage for your belongings. Enter into a delightful open-plan living space, where black and white furniture contrast beautifully with the fresh wooden floors, and you are drawn to the huge sliding windows facing out to sea and promising a morning coffee in the great outdoors, a relaxing electric fire-look stove will warm your feet after a long day as you recline in the leather sofas, feeling the softness of a tasteful grey rug under your feet, before a heart-warming meal is served at the dining table with a view to the setting sun, you can even use the scope provided to watch wildlife whilst the designated chef makes the most of the fully furnished kitchen, sporting stylish fittings and a more casual sitting area perfect for coffee and cake.

There are two rooms available, a super-king-size with a zip link that can be set up as a twin room, sporting pleasant purple furnishings as well as a quirky striped carpet, half wood and half painted feature wall and a view to the scenery outside, whilst the second room, a king-size, is decorated with a relaxing hint of blue, reminding you how close to the sea you are, with ample storage via attractive wooden furniture and Hebridean tweed sourced locally and bringing with it a connection to the island and its heritage.

When in need of a shower or a soak in the bath, head over to the family bathroom, where you will find all of the necessary home comforts.

Outside, you will be delighted to find a beautiful garden area with decking and a bench perfect for lunch in the sun, sun loungers to bask in the calming rays, and an amazing hot tub just waiting to tempt you with a feel of opulence and relaxation, or you can use the bikes provided to take a trek across the wonderful cycle paths of the area.

Positioned in Stornoway, the largest of the settlements on the Isle of Lewis, you will be met with a variety of local beaches just a short walk away, where you can picnic, kayak or even try out wild swimming and, further from the property, you may even see seals basking in the harbour.

At Stornoway, you will find the stunning Lewis Castle and grounds, boat trips across to the mainland and day trips to St Kilda where you can visit nearby islands and the abundance of wildlife that they have to offer, as well as shops, pubs and cafes to keep you fuelled for a day of adventures.

From this convenient location you will also be able to travel to fascinating historical sites such as Calanais Standing Stones and visit local museums and local produce stores such as Tweed makers.

A beautiful property surrounded by excellent locations and activities, you are bound to fall in love with the Outer Hebrides with a stay at Peninsula Cottage.

The islands can be reached by flights from Edinburgh, Glasgow or Inverness; or by ferry from Uig on Skye to Tarbert, or Ullapool to Stornoway.

About the location

STORNOWAY

Arnol 14.5 miles; Callanish Stones 16 miles.

Stornoway is the only town in the Outer Hebrides and is a bustling and growing area with a busy working harbour, a great selection of shops selling local gifts including Harris Tweed, leisure facilities and wonderful award-winning restaurants selling locally sourced food of the highest quality. Lewis is a place where the lilting Gaelic language is spoken everywhere! Visitors to the town will find plenty to keep them occupied, the magnificent Lews Castle Grounds and the iconic Lews Castle, many good museums and art galleries and also a smart golf course and clubhouse. The large, quiet sandy beaches are close by and provide visitors with wonderful views and the town itself forms a great base for a holiday exploring the unique islands that form the Outer Hebrides. On the north west side of Lewis you can visit the village of Arnol with its Blackhouse Museum, an unmissable visit for anyone wanting to understand the way of life that was once widespread in Lewis. Carloway Broch is nearby and is another fascinating landmark and incredibly well preserved. The Callanish Stones from the Neolithic are also well worth visiting. The whalebone arch and numerous Iron Age dwellings on stunning Bosta beach make for great days out. The friendliness of the local people will astound visitors to the islands and you cannot fail to be impressed with the genteel and contented pace of life you will encounter here.

Note: Bedroom 2 is a twin
room but can be made up as a superking by prior arrangement. Note: Though electricity is included in the rent, electric for charging cars is not included in the rental. Note: Please bear in mind that this property is located on an island and therefore only accessible by plane or ferry.
