Customer Reviews of Woodside House, Applecross, sleeps 4
1st comment: A cosy little cottage that is well maintained and run. The views across to the islands from the breakfast table are stunning. Oct 2011.
2nd comment: A fantastic location, would advise visitors to read the visitors book on arrival to get an idea of everything there is locally to do. For those prepared to venture further afield, would definitely recommend the trip round Torridon and up to Gairloch.....an absolutely fantastic beach. Sept 2011.
3rd comment: Ideal for a couple or a family of 4. Very well equipped indicating that it used by the owner, ie nothing lacking. (Bath towels not very big.) June 2011.
4th comment: This cottage was a little gem. Stunning views but sadly the weather masked them. Loved the style and decor. Exceptionally clean and tidy. Lovely welcome basket of food on arrival,very much appreciated,thank you. Cosy and homely. Every need had been thought of. A high standard of fixtures and fittings. Lovely walks from the cottage. Well maintained cottage and garden. Loved it. Accommodation in Applecross we did feel to be quite expensive compared to other areas near by, possibly due to high demand after the fairly recent publicity from the Monty Hall’s TV series but having said that we were very happy with this lovely cottage. May 2011.
