  • "Our stay at Eden House was lovely, I stayed with my partner and my son and fiancé and 2 boys."

    Overall the cottage was lovely plenty of room and heaps of storage. The house was massive. The only not so good thing was the water staying hot enough. My son had bath one morning and this ended up with the rest of the group taking cold showers and cold water from every tap. Also the windows when opened (due to the hot weather )were full of dead flies, spiders and cobwebs. Reading a review left a couple of months ago this problem happened then. So the owner’s haven’t solved this issue. The house was situated in close proximity to all destinations and was very quiet, no noise day or night. The garden was big enough for our dog and she loved the space. My son was very excited to see red kites flying close to the house. Overall we all enjoyed our stay, the only reason we wouldn’t come back was we visited all the locations near by and want to experience different places. Louise

  • "What can I say?"

    So very impressed with this property. In a quiet area and perfect for a relaxing and peaceful stay but within easy reach of local amenities in bigger towns and cities (Dingwall, Inverness). The property itself was exactly as described in the listing. All the rooms were so comfortable - plenty of space and really well furnished and maintained. Lots of storage space in the kitchen drawers and cupboards. The garden was excellent too - worth noting that it is only enclosed on 3 sides and for that reason we kept the dogs on long leads when in the garden. This was especially useful as the adjoining field had sheep and lambs in during our stay. Also worth noting that the next door neighbours keep chickens and a few of these liked escaping from their own garden and into surrounding areas. Very entertaining! There was some guest information provided, but would have benefitted from some more local information (eg walks, nearest shops, etc), and even more useful would be a list of all the house information such as wifi info (to save having to search for the correct router etc), recycling/waste disposal details, etc. In saying that, we found most of what we needed online - it just took a bit more time. All in all, we would definitely recommend this property and would be delighted to return in the future.

  • "Beautiful large cottage in a great location for visiting northern highlands as well as local attractions."

    Cottage was lovely and warm and very comfortable and easily accommodated 7 of us with plenty space and storage. Whilst the cottage was mostly clean, there was poor attention to cleaning eg windows filled with dead flies/spiders when opened, thick greasy dust on all light fittings and blinds, some kitchen ware was dirty and hadn’t been properly washed and there was missing cutlery and pan lids etc. I’d have expected windows to be opened to air house in between guests so I presume this doesn’t happen or the spiders/flies would have been cleaned away as easily spotted as soon as windows were opened. At previous cottages I have usually been contacted on arrival by the owner/caretaker to check everything is in order however this did not happen. We were missing the tv remote and I had to contact Sykes on the Monday 2 days after arrival to obtain this as tv would not work without it. Had we had contact from the owner on arrival this could have been resolved the day of arrival. When we did meet the owner on the day we left she was very helpful and allowed us access to the cottage for a delayed departure due to car breakdown which was very generous.

  • "What a great find."

    This house is just as nice as the pictures show. It’s spacious , very comfortable, warm and it had everything we needed. The garden was great too. The location of the house is perfect for exploring the area, near the main road but tucked away so you don’t hear the traffic. Will definitely be back.

  • "Eden house was perfect, so much storage, large garden, amazing views and perfect sunset."

    Absolutely big enough for 2 families to share comfortably. Comfortable, clean and a lovely welcome treat. Only thing missing was a welcome pack, we had no idea which bins to use, nearest recycling or what was around us. I know most people use google, but the signal at the cottage was poor and no wifi. Another suggestion would be door mats indoors. However our week was amazing, we went swimming in loads of beaches (Nairn, Dornoch, Chanonry point) and seen dolphins, cycled Ness island and the canals and cycled to Dingwall. Strathpeffer had great walks and a fantastic Victorian railway cafe. We took the open top bus, and used the leisure centre for the kids. Went for a run through Canon Bridge and along the river path. Don’t forget to check out the iconic book shop in Inverness (20 mins drive away, there’s a good cycle network past the house, though too close to the road for young kids). Absolutely will be back.

  • "The house and facilities were excellent but we were disappointed to discover that on arrival the advertised games room did not in fact exist."

    At that time It was advertised in the house specification. The lovely owner kindly contacted us to enquire if everything was in order and she confirmed there has never been a games room at the property and she would contact you to get the specification amended. Therefore this was no reflection on the owner but false advertising by yourselves. The games room being one of the main attractions to the property led to a disappointed family. Despite that we loved Eden House and would highly recommend it to others.
