  • "Arrived on a Saturday and after a long journey we were shattered but the view from the bungalow made it all worthwhile, absolute fantastic location."

    The bungalow itself was very clean and very well equipped with everything you need. The amount storage we had was fantastic. The heating was really hot and made the evening in the bungalow very snug. The shower was very powerful with hot water at all times. The only thing that needs updating is the blind in bathroom, everything was perfect and will certainly be returning, there is no wifi but to be honest it made it better as we could enjoy the view a lot more, look forward to next visit

  • "The bungalow is in a stunning location but it wasn't very clean."

    The kitchen floor was grubby, there was mould on the bathroom blind, the shelves hadn't been wiped. The knives in the kitchen were so blunt that carrots had to be cut with the bread knife. However, the views were brilliant and ever-changing wit the weather. Mention should be made of the lack of light pollution, the stars were so bright and the milky way showed up really well. Also the furniture is facing the wrong way, you want the sofas to be facing the windows to see the view over the loch, not facing a wall.

  • "We loved our stay at 1 Bayview."

    Lovely remote setting, enjoyed the peace and quiet. Very comfortable. . It was our third week away and I had quite a bit of washing so a clothes horse would have been helpful.

  • "Had a great week’s holiday in Poolewe."

    Lovely cottage. My only feedback would be that there wasn’t enough toilet paper (luckily we brought some with us) and the entrance to the driveway was quite narrow making car manoeuvres tight (especially if each cottage has 2 cars). Definitely would return. Nick

  • "Very clean, good shower, fab views, kids loved sheep coming up to garden fence, really enjoyed the beach below although bit of a scramble."

    The glasses, cups and cutlery could do with replenishing.

  • "A lovely isolated semi-detached property."

    Very clean. Some minor updating perhaps needed as not all windows can open/ close properly. Property owner was friendly and helpful. Views from the property were fantastic, and we saw sea otters, sea eagles and dolphins, and a myriad of sea birds during our stay. Do take time to walk to the end of the loch (follow the road to the end) as it is worth it for the views alone. The community cafe in Gairloch is fantastic, and we recommend the Gairloch estate walks (both the arboretum and waterfall routes).

  • "A fantastic find and we had a brilliant holiday."

    A local information pack would be a good addition. If you do a lot of cooking take a sharp knife with you

  • "We had a great week at 1 Bayview Cottage with lots of sunshine and no rain!"

    The cottage is well equipped with everything you need (even a 4G reception if you really need to keep in touch with the world!). Bayview cottage is ideally located overlooking Loch Ewe (spotted several black throated divers and heard the elusive cuckoo most days!) with many great beaches, walks and interesting things to do and see in the surrounding area. The cottage was a great place to relax especially at the picnic table in the garden (so long as you protected yourself against the midges!!). The welcome postcard and packet of teabags from the local cleaner was appreciated. The only thing that would have enhanced the accommodation would have been a limited supply of extra basic essentials (eg bin bags, toilet rolls, kitchen rolls, washing powder etc). A great week!

    The kitchen and heating system could do with modernising, but would stay again

  • "The bungalow was beautiful and extremely comfortable."

    Far exceeded our expectations. We will certainly return. The only problem encountered were the steps tp the rear. Being disabled made them difficult to use. Another rail on the other side would be ideal. The view from the lounge window was wonderful!

  • "The bungalow was better than advertised it was everything we were looking for with more besides, seeing the pictures and description gave us an expectation but to actually see it all in the flesh so to speak was an absolute dream on a scale that far exceeded our expectations."

    .. so much so we are seriously considering booking again for our next annual holiday. Would definitely recommend Sykes to anyone as we have nothing but praise for the way they handled our brief for a quiet holiday in beautiful surroundings overlooking fantastic views...

About the location


Dingwall 50 miles; Ullapool 50 miles.

The pretty village of Poolewe sits in the shelter of Loch Ewe, at the mouth of the River Ewe where it tumbles down from Loch Maree. It is a pretty place in an area of spectacular scenery and is home to a well-stocked shop, small swimming pool and two hotels. The world-renowned Inverewe Garden (National Trust) is half a mile across the bay from the village. The site was developed by the botanist Osgood Mackenzie from 1862 until his death in 1922. Warmed by the Gulf Stream, it is home to exotic plants, imported from all over the world – a must for all visitors to the area. Firemore beach is five miles to the west and north along the coast is Gruinard Bay with its striking sands; a series of attractive beaches skirt the bay and a number are easily reached from the main road. With spectacular scenery, mountains, excellent hillwalking, golf, fishing, wildlife cruises and much more, this is a great area for a holiday!

Note: Although the property is pet free, the Owners dogs stays there occasionally.
