Customer Reviews of Old Croft House, Strathcarron, Sleeps 4
1st comment: If you want real peace and quiet without technology this is the place for you. Surrounded by beautiful scenery and the quiet of the countryside this cottage is second to none. Its location is perfect and the location is close enough for the west side of Scotland including Skye. A real must and value for money if looking for that short break or week away. Oct 2011.
2nd comment: Blessedly quiet, warm and great for walkers because of the scullery area for boots, waterproofs etc. Owners could not have been more helpful or welcoming, even contacting a mountain guide on our behalf to organise a Cuillin trip. We’ve booked with Welcome Cottages for many years, and although this was the most expensive property to date, it was by far the best. We wish we’d booked for 2 weeks! Aug 2011.
3rd comment: The cottage is in a fantastic location (I lived in it back in the late 1980s), with very friendly owners, and is well equipped. It is on a working croft, so be prepared for animal noises, but this only makes for a more real and enjoyable experience. April 2011.
4th comment: Fantastic remote, cosy hideaway. The cottage is very warm and the furnishings very clean and attractive. The real fires really add to the atmosphere. Would thoroughly recommend to those wanting a real break away from a busy life. March 2011.
5th comment: Fabulous house in fantastic location. Excellently equipped. July 2010.
6th comment: I liked all of it; outstanding. June 2010.
7th comment: The croft was very very comfortable. Great care has obviously gone into making sure the property provides all comforts usually associated with being at home. The location was superb - down a very quiet country track (great walks just from the door), yet just a 5 minute drive to the local small supermarket/papers/coal. March 2010.
8th comment: We had a wonderful holiday in Old Croft House. The owners were extremely kind and helpful and the cottage was beautiful. The surrounding area was more beautiful than i could ever imagine and the local folk were very kind and even drove us into Lochcarron to the local shop as we came by foot (which was a bit mad but doable). I cant wait to go back again, enjoy your visit! Dec 2009.
9th comment: Well equipped, clean, friendly owner. Oct 2009.

11th Comment The cottage we stayed in in Scotland exceeded our expectations - it was delightful and the owners couldn’t have been nicer or more helpful. Highly recommended. We have already booked a villa in Tuscany for September. May 2009.
12th Comment The owners were extremely helpful and gave us useful local information. The map room was fun and informative! Aug 2008.
13th Comment We loved the holiday and the accommodation in particular. May 2008.
14th Comment A tiny cottage with a big heart. The views from the garden were amazing and the owners very welcoming. It is a working farm so expect "farm sounds" early in the morning while you are cosy in bed. It added to the charm for us. Sept 2008.
15th Comment Spacious, clean and cosy former croft house. Ideal location for exploring locally and even further afield. We had a wonderful family holiday with great weather to top it all. Aug 2008.
