“Perfect holiday home”

We booked the cottage, paying 30% deposit when subsequently everyone else ended up working Easter weekend/not well. As I had wanted to come to the Isle for a long time, the option was to cancel and look for a hotel/B&B which is dog friendly (which will ended up costing me similar to the remaining amount). Decided not to cancel. And I love it. So did Charlie. It's a home away from home - not only they have welcome pack and decent coffee, the kitchen is so well stocked that I could even bake should I wish to. The place is clean and well-presented. There was just too much to see on both Harris and Lewis despite the weather and it is a pleasure to return to after a day of walking/sight seeing.

“First class holiday cottage”

Accommodation precisely as advertised. Clean & spotless and clearly recently modernised with fresh, high quality décor. Well equipped kitchen, spotless bathroom and comfortable bed. Wi-Fi worked well. Cosy central heating plus availability of peat fire in living room, if needed.
Such a lovely touch to have an excellent ‘welcome pack’ provided, with local produce including milk, eggs, cheese, smoked salmon, cake & biscuits.
Without a doubt the best self-catering accommodation we’ve ever stayed in.
Stayed as a couple, but would advise that this is spacious enough for a family of 6.
Location just 15 minutes outside Stornoway is ideal as a base to explore all that Lewis & Harris has to offer.

Pabbay House is such a lovely, well equipped place. A real home from home. The owners are so friendly and welcoming. They had provided some complimentary food to 'get us started' but it wasn't just the usual tea, milk and bread - we had smoked salmon, delicious local cheese, cake and more!

“This house was the perfect quiet, tranquil getaway!”

The house was beautiful, clean, warm, cozy, and perhaps most importantly true to the pictures provided. The wifi worked incredibly well. Kitchen had all amenities one could need and Barbara and Boyd are absolutely wonderful hosts - they made sure to have a heavily stocked welcome package upon arrival with coffee, tea, breakfast cake, smoked salmon, goat cheese. I could not have been happier with this house!
