“Peaceful, quiet and comfortable stay, will be back.”
Reviewed 20 April 2016 for a stay in April 2016

The rental was clean, tidy and located in a quiet site with good views out to the sea. The facilities were of a good standard and the owner who was close by, was welcoming and friendly and helpful when needed, but left us to come and go freely. Would recommend as a quiet and restful retreat.

“Friendly and helpful hosts”
Reviewed 14 April 2016 for a stay in April 2016

Lovely sea views, bus to Stornoway from outside the cottage, enjoyable walks from the house with, at this time of year, lambs and daffodils wherever we went. We were lucky enough to have sunny weather and blue skies. Lilian and John went out of their way to help us with everything we needed. Highly recommended.

“A perfect base for our adventures on Lewis!”
Reviewed 16 September 2015 for a stay in August 2015

My husband and I (20s/30s) recently stayed at The Barn with my mum (60s) for a busy long weekend (graduation, catching up with friends and sight-seeing) and were delighted with our choice of accommodation. It was the perfect size for the 3 of us, felt incredibly homely, had great views and was one of the best equipped self-catering cottages we've stayed in. Lillian is an excellent host, who has thought of every detail and was very helpful, particularly with a last minute request we made.

The Barn is in a lovely location, close enough to Stornoway for easy access, but far enough out to be very peaceful indeed. I will definitely recommend it to any friends and family visiting the island!

“Perfect...”
Reviewed 14 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

This was perfect for what I wanted, a three day solo trip to the Hebrides. The accommodation was clean, well furnished with everything I needed. The owners were also very friendly and helpful. I couldn't have asked for anything more...

“Highly recommend”
Reviewed 10 August 2015 for a stay in July 2015

The accommodation is far enough out of town to be quiet and relaxing but close enough for a quick car journey. The barn is clean, well equipped, excellent views and perfect for a relaxing getaway.
It can be a little tricky to find as sat nav will take you past it but the owner was friendly and gave us her number in case we got lost.
