Holiday Rental House
IsleBebytheSea is a shepherd hut decorated with a cosy traditional Hebridean theme using wood and tweed, in a vintage character. The hut is new and bespoke, benefiting from modern comforts, hot water and of course, electricity! We accept bookings of up to 2, as we feel this is most comfortable. It has 2 full size double beds, set up as bunks, with a short ladder to access the top bed. It offers a bespoke crafted, fully equipped kitchenette, baby butler sink, Le Creuset cookware and vintage cups & saucers. There is a cute little, but fully equipped WC and shower room with electric shower. Due to the open location and fierce Winters we get in the Outer Hebrides, we opted for sealed cottage style windows, these are very cosy, offer amazing uninterrupted sea views, and are finished with Har...IsleBebytheSea is a shepherd hut decorated with a cosy traditional Hebridean theme using wood and tweed, in a vintage character.

It has 2 full size double beds, set up as bunks, with a short ladder to access the top bed. It offers a bespoke crafted, fully equipped kitchenette, baby butler sink, Le Creuset cookware and vintage cups & saucers. There is a cute little, but fully equipped WC and shower room with electric shower. Due to the open location and fierce Winters we get in the Outer Hebrides, we opted for sealed cottage style windows, these are very cosy, offer amazing uninterrupted sea views, and are finished with Harris tweed blinds. There is under bed luggage storage available to guests. Mobile phone signal is weak, but there is free WIFI. There are a radio and books for your use. Your hut is fully insulated and has a heater if you need it, and a fan for the hot days. IsleBebytheSea is located at the bottom of my garden on a working croft, in a peaceful, coastal area, in a rural crofting village, in the Lochs area of the Isle of Lewis. Your accommodation opens onto the shore via your own private foot path(approx 50 mtrs).. You have uninterrupted views of the coastline. The hut is set 50 mtrs away from the road, and is on a main bus route, which operates on a regular service into Stornoway, connecting to various other destinations in Lewis and Harris. The service operates Mon - Fri. We are central to Lewis & Harris, approx. 3 miles off the main 'spinal' road which connects Lewis &Harris. Our guests comment on the convenience of the location of IsleBebytheSea, using it as a base for exploring both Lewis & Harris, and having easy travel to and from ferry and airport. (IsleBebytheSea is approx. a 15min drive to Stornoway & 30min drive to Harris.) We are close to the Hebridean Way too. Guests at IsleBebythe Sea have private access to my small home gym. It is attached to my house, approx. 40 mtrs from hut. The gym is approx. 3 x 4 mtrs and contains resistance and cardiovascular equipment. Your can have access to my ‘secret garden’ with deck and have private use of my ‘Lay Z Spa’ hot tub if you advise you'd like that. Relax and enjoy watching the boats sail by on the water, spot the marine life swimming about, listen to the birdsongs, star gaze to our dark sky while in the hot tub, enjoy the sight of the wild flowers and sample the fruit from the bushes lining the hut garden. Walk to the top of the drive to look out for the aurora borealis. Please be aware we have cats, dogs, hens and horses near your accommodation, and the cats will be very keen to meet you! This is primarily a working croft so sadly we are not suitably geared up for, so cannot accept children. Sorry if this doesn’t suit your needs. We also don't accept pets. Sorry. Please also note the hut is accessed via 2 steps.More

We stayed 3 nights. The location is wonderful : loch view and close to Stornoway. The accomodation is so cute and cosy. And the hottub is ideal after a long walk.
