"We had the most relaxing time over Christmas, the Cottage was everything we expected and our host went out of his way to ensure our comfort, even putting a Christmas Tree in the cottage and decorating it."
We will be back
"A fantastic location and a fantastic house, we both enjoyed a relaxing week."
"We want to thank Edith for going out of her way to ensure our stay would be enjoyable."
As well as being surprisingly spacious, the accommodation is immaculately clean throughout. Furnishings and fittings are all top-notch and appliances and equipment state of the art. Being surrounded by mountains it was no real surprise that television reception was problematic at times but Edith went out of her way to address our issues. We adored the location which is surrounded by delightful walks and stunningly scenic drives. It was also a joy to watch from the comfort of the lounge settee the birds feeding non-stop on the well-stocked feeder across the drive.

Great place for a short break, loved all the goodies the owners left us, (pat on the back) Bed was a little hard but comfortable Tele took us a bit to get used to but by Friday we'd cracked it
"Overall the cottage is very well equipped, clean, spacious and in a lovely quiet location."
The owners were welcoming and informative. The only issue for us was the bed, we both found it very hard and uncomfortable and this ultimately our stay.
"A fantastic cottage with all that you could need for a lovely relaxing break away."
Thank you to Matthew and Edith for making us so welcome and providing a few extra treats on arrival. Everything has been thought about to make guests very comfortable.

The property was excellent the owners were very friendly and helpful and the little extras they supplied in the property made it a special holiday and a beautiful location
"This (not so little) gem of a cottage was a perfect base for our holiday."
It is so comfortable and well equipped. The attention to detail by Edith & Matthew is first class, they’ve thought of everything. The personalised Welcome information was so useful, it made it easy to use the appliances rather than having to seek out instruction manuals. Crockery/cutlery/pans etc weren’t old cast offs that you often seem to find in cottages, but very good quality items. The welcome pack was so well thought out, excellent when you arrive after a long journey. The coffee maker was a real treat for Simon, he was very impressed! The setting of the cottage was perfect to go off exploring all the amazing surrounding areas. This is definitely 5 star accommodation. Thank you for making our holiday so perfect!
"Lovely property in an ideal location for cycling and walking."
Property owners very welcoming and will definitely try and stay there again if we are back in the area.
"Very friendly owners, fantastic cottage, highly recommend to anyone visiting this area."
"A lovely place to stay - very clean, comfortable, and welcoming."
We were lucky enough to have some sunny evenings and sitting out on the porch was really relaxing. Wonderful location - we enjoyed evening walks down to the nearby canal at Gairlochy and access to other walks by car was quick and easy. Absolutely perfect!
"Lovely place with amazing scenery and not too far away from the local facilities."
"Very well equipped with lots of little extras to make you feel welcome."
Excellent venue for walkers.
"Lovely cottage in a beautiful location, unfortunately few facilities nearb y, e."
G. Shops, pubs. Spean Bridge not recommended.
Very well equipped and in a lovely location.
"There was everything you could need, thank you!"
"The property was fantastic, even better than the write up."
We felt at home as soon as we entered and the extra provisions left by Edith and Matt were a lovely surprise. There is everything you would need in the property and more. It has been thoughtfully furnished and stocked. Very quiet area and surrounded by greenery. We loved watching the wide variety of birds on the feeders. We were also lucky to have fantastic weather so were able to make use of the verandah and sit in the sun having breakfast. Edith and Matt are lovely and very helpful if needed. We have already recommended this properry to friends and if we ever holiday in this region again we will be sure to book here. Thank you. We had a fantastic, comfortable holiday.
"Easy to find from Spean Bridge and commando memorial."
Excellent, quiet location. Lochs, river and mountains all around. Accommodation is modern and clean. Every appliance you may need in kitchen. Internet TV. WiFi. USB ports throughout. Lovely bedroom and bathroom. Thoughtful starter food items provided. Owner was very nice and helpful.
"The house was spotless the owners very helpful a perfect place to stay very peaceful in a lovely area."
"Well equipped house."
excellent base for all activities.
Lovely place to stay and Matthew and Edith so welcoming. The homely touches with lovely bread and eggs on arrival with plenty of fruit tea coffee etc was a nice touch. And finally stayed in a place with a decent TV which, for relaxing with a movie after a day on the mountains, was perfect!! ! Highly recommend.
"The cottage is spotlessly clean and very well equipped with everything you could need and a wonderful welcome pack."
Great place to come back to after a hard day in the hills too. Matthew and Edith are great hosts and extremely helpful, highly recommend this cottage.
"Amazing! We have booked several holiday cottages with Sykes over the years, and we have never ever had a bad one, this cottage though was the best we have ever stayed in by far!"
The view was stunning and the cottage itself was very well presented, little things like their being flasks in the kitchen for when we went out, bread and fresh eggs on the side (bantam ones as well which was lovely) and a washing machine made the holiday even easier, and shows the owners obviously know what their doing. The owners were very welcoming and friendly. This was actually our honeymoon after being married at Gretna and I can honestly say it was more than good enough for a honeymoon, best holiday I think we have ever had.
"Having used Sykes cottages for a number of years to find and book accommodation, this property is by far the best that we have ever stayed at."
I could eulogise for ages about this place but I have decided to use one word to cover the whole gambit, including the hosts, 'ABSOLUTELY SUPERB' (ok two words).
"The range and quality of furnishings, kitchen and bathroom facilities exceeded our expectations."
Everything you need and so much more was thoughtfully provided and was much appreciated. The owners made us very welcome and nothing was too much trouble to ensure our stay was a truly relaxing experience. We will definitely return.
"If you want to stay in this area then look no further!"
This is the place to stay! By far the cleanest & well thought out holiday property we have stayed in. Everything is here to make your stay as comfortable as possible and with the extra touches added by the owners, you really can't ask for more!
"A fantastic place to stay in an amazing location!"
So comfortable and has everything we could possibly want - to be honest we really didn’t want to leave.
"Wonderful stay in very clean and comfortable accomodation, situated in a quiet location."
Warm, cosy and with all mod cons, our stay was made even better by our very welcoming hosts.
"Very friendly owners Great place to relax Very clean and tidy Lovely location We will return back there"
"We spent two wonderful weeks at Little Tigh Clovelly over the Christmas holidays."
The property is perfect for a couple, very clean, really warm and comfortable with everything you need to feel at home (good shower, Amazon tv; excellent wifi). It is actually much more spacious than the photos suggest! The place was decorated for Christmas and the kitchen had everything we needed to cook proper meals. Great bean to cup coffee machine, good selection of crockery, and plenty of cutlery with all the usual appliances. We were cycling and walking and there was plenty of space to dry clothes, clean shoes etc. The owners were lovely. They made space for our bikes in their secure garage, made sure we had everything we needed and could get in touch for anything but left us to it otherwise. We really appreciated the useful welcome pack and all the thoughtful touches to the property. I left a jacket behind when we left and they kindly posted it back to us within a day. Definitely one to return to!
Lovely cottage, well equipped with everything. Owners very friendly. Clean, warm, cosy cottage with beautiful scenery to admire.
"The owners Matthew and Edith were very kind in supplying a few basic foodstuffs and a few thoughtful treats to help us settle in."
Those small touches make a big difference. Edith and Matthew made it clear they were on hand if we had any queries or problems, but they respected our privacy too. The cottage is in a lovely spot, accessible for local walks and beauty spots. We would recommend it for walkers as there are many options. Fort William is only a few miles away which was convenient
"Excellent very friendly owners will recommend to everyone."
We had the best weather and the scenery is fabulous.
"Little Tigh Clovelly is an amazing little gem, situated in a beautiful location for access to the Caledonian canal, Glen Nevis, Spean Bridge, Fort William, Isle of Skye & The Western Isles."
The owners were very pleasant and welcoming, giving us a general overview of the cottage as well as the surrounding area. The cottage is very well equipped and there were many little extras to be found making our stay even more pleasant. Well worth our rating of 5 stars
"I really enjoyed my time spent in Spean Bridge and after a day walking the hills returning to the cottage was a perfect ending to my day as the cottage was so comfortable and beautifully presented."
I would highly recommend the cottage to my friends to stay and explore this beautiful area of Scotland.
"Is it possible to give a cottage more than 5 stars?"
Very comfortable with quality finishes, furnishings and facilities. Friendly owners, stunning view and a great base for touring this area of Scotland.
"Cottage was of high standard, very clean, ideal for exploring that part of Scotland, in a quiet location."
"Our thanks to the owners for their great hospitality, even to provisions left for us, most welcome after 2 days driving!"
The house location is quiet and has a lovely outlook over the River Spean, very close to the Commando Memorial and spectacular views of Ben Nevis. It is an excellent centre for touring the West Highlands and Islands.
"This cottage is one of the best we have ever stayed in."
The owners Edith & Matthew have provided a beautifully clean & well equipped 'home from home'. They have thoughtfully provided many extras to make guests feel welcome including bread, milk, butter etc to ensure you can relax after a long journey. They are very friendly & helpful providing local knowledge without being intrusive in any way. The cottage is in a lovely location & perfectly based for the many activities available in this area. We had a wonderful week (really lucky with good weather too!); cannot recommend this cottage highly enough. Many thanks for sharing your lovely cottage with us.
"Tigh Clovelly is a beautiful, comfortable, clean and well equipped cottage."
It's in a beautiful location with stunning scenery but close to many amenities and has lovely walks close by. Would highly recommend to anyone.
Beautiful location. Extremely helpful and friendly hosts. Would highly recommend.
"We booked our cottage for two weeks but could have done with an extra week to visit a few extra places."
The cottage was ideally located to explore a large area of the Highlands and was situated in a lovely quiet area but with good access to the main roads. The cottage was immaculate and very comfortable with everything we needed. Edith and Mathew made us very welcome and were on hand if there were any problems, which there weren't. There are not a lot of "attractions" to visit in this area so it is really an area to visit for walking and sightseeing the fantastic rivers, waterfalls, lochs and mountains. We were visiting at the time of Covid-19 so of course some attractions were not available but the West Highland Railway from Fort William to Mallaig would have been stunning. To summarise, a beautiful cottage, scenery and holiday.
"Our holiday was really good."
The cottage is fabulous with beautiful views, the owners were lovely, we could not have wished for better. Outstanding in every way Thank you Sandie & Michael Ireland
"Really great location for cycling and walking."
Owners were very generous with some provisions on arrival. Very private property with lovely views across the fields. Really recommend booking this cottage. We had a great holiday. Thank you very much to the owners- especially for letting us stay during a pandemic.
"An imaculately presented spacious place for two, the Little Tigh is kitted out with comforts informed by our host's own experiences of going away for a break - in this case in a quiet location within striking distance of all you'll want from a trip to the Highlands."
Gets our five stars with a smile!
"This cottage is exactly as described and more."
The hosts were warm, welcoming and nothing was a problem! After an initial greeting and show around the property, they kept to themselves but were extremely approachable if we wanted any advice on where to visit. The cottage itself was cosy, really well equipped (spices, a range of teas, dishwasher tablets, handwash and more) and extremely warm! The attention to detail was lovely, providing us with boot cleaning towels and a surplus of towels to use for the powerful, warm shower (this even had the option to play music and flashing lights!). Overall, a perfect stay and would go back in a heartbeat.
"Great little holiday cottage with everything that you could need."
Due to the current COVID-19 situation we choose to eat in the house and the kitchen contains all the facilities you need to be able to do this. Also some thoughtful extra bits and pieces were available on arrival. Cleanliness standards are very high.
"This is a brilliant cottage in a superb location."
The cottage itself is extremely well equipped; nothing was missing for us to enjoy our week’s stay. There was even a good range of herbs and spices to cook with! The owners had provided a welcome pack of milk, bread, cheese, fruit, biscuits and a large range of teas, which was very much appreciated. The owners live onsite but apart an initial welcome and a quick tour of the cottage you would not know they were there. I have no hesitation in recommending this cottage to other people.
