      House by the sea is the most beautiful place to stay, perfectly situated with lovely views, we saw seals and otters everyday from the living room window. My children aged 3 and 4 absolutely loved the cottage, they found toys and games which kept them entertained. Everything seemed to be catered for and it felt so homely. They loved hunting for crabs on the rocks outside the cottage, spotting the otters and the amazing beaches everywhere on the island. My 4 year old named it ‘house by the sparkling sea’ best holiday ever!

      A lovely house to stay in. Spacious with a wonderful light sitting room. We loved the window seat looking over the water and being able to be so close to the sea whatever the weather. Absolute magic.

      This cottage is an absolute gem! The location is perfect! By the sea tucked away and everything we hoped for. The cottage is spacious and very well equipped. Clean. The lounge with the window seat and log burner was stunning, comfy and perfect for relaxed evenings as well as for gazing across the bay.. made all the better when watching 2 otters out the window not to mention eagles and seals.

      Communication with the owners was very good and nice to arrive to goodies too. Lots of information on Barra in the cottage. Hot water plentiful. Towels, bedding and everything to make it feel like home for a week

      A special place!

      What a wonderful well equipped, comfortable cottage with stunning views. Rain or shine the surrounding views did not disappoint. What a beautiful island. A hidden treasure.

      We have just returned home after a wonderful week staying at House by the sea! The cottage is really well equipped and deceptively spacious! When we weren’t out exploring Barra and it’s beauty we spent time relaxing in the large, bright and airy living room. We’d light the fire in the evening and spend time enjoying the views from the window seat. This cottage is dog friendly too which meant the whole family had a great time! The whole family spent an unforgettable week here and we will definitely return.

      We stayed here September 19-23rd and it was a lovely short break, picturesque location, good facilities and a great base to explore or just simply relax

      What a beautiful cottage in an absolutely stunning location. We stayed for 1 week in July with 2 young kids and it was perfect. Situated right on Brevig Bay it’s perfect for exploring the shore, watching the seals and otters play on the rocks and even a swim if you can brave the cold water. Well loved house with so much character.

      A really lovely cottage which accommodated three couples without any sense of being crammed in. Everything you needed was there and everything worked. The owner couldn’t have been more helpful. Fabulous views across the bay and an enchanting few yards’ walk through the garden to otters and seals. We managed to take a lovely photo of the cottage from across the bay – almost at theend of rainbow.Hope it uploads.

      House by the Sea is in the most idyllic location right on the water and we have had the most wonderful, relaxing and fun holiday here. We saw otters and seals in the bay, swam off the rocks, visited all the islands in our boat, caught crabs and fish and had a really great holiday. The house is perfect – beautifully done up to reflect its sea location and most comfortable. A real gem on Barra!

      We stayed here over New Year 2016/17 and had also stayed in May 2016. We almost hesitated to write this review however, as we would like it to keep it a secret!
      If you need to switch off/relax completely/get it away from it all etc-this is the place for you. It is unlike anything you will find in mainland UK.
      Try it, but don’t tell anyone else.

      Lovely lovely cottage with spectacular views of the bay. Living room is large and comfortable with window seats to watch the seals play in the sea. House looks to have been redecorated recently which gives it a fresh clean feel unlike some holiday homes which can feel a bit dated. That being said it doesn’t feel too ‘new’; there’s a lot of character about it. The friendly owners, who intend to retire here one day, clearly love the place as much as we did, it’s so well looked after. We will return!
