We stayed at Moorfield for a short break in November. The owners were very helpful and flexible about our stay especially when forcasted storms could have affected our travel plans. As it was all was okay and we arrived in howling gales and lashing rain, but Rob came out to greet us and show us how everything worked at the cottage . Unfortunately on arrival the cottage was very cold and Rob admitted that they had forgotten to put the heating on early enough, it took a while but did eventually warm up and it was lovely and cosy the rest of our stay. The cottage is a small annex attached to the owners house, with a compact kitchen with everything you could need ,bedroom, bathroom, and a cosy lounge with comfy sofas and TV /DVD. There is a small dining table by the window with views down to the sea. Kitchen has a welcome pack of groceries and a store cupboard of useful items. On our first evening Rob brought round some fresh cooked rolls for us to enjoy. Owners are very accomodating for dogs providing blankets and drying towels. Although Rodel is at the base of Harris it is only 90 minutes away from Stornoway and is a great base to explore the island, Very close to the beautiful 15th century St Clements Church.Nearest beach is Northton about 10 mins away ( you pass the great Croft 36 shop selling home cooked pies, bread and pastries. We can also recommend their home delivery meals!!) Its a 5 minute drive to Leverburgh which has a very good community shop selling everything you could need for your holiday , so please shop there and help keep it open. During our stay we drove on every road on Harris, and every day saw eagles both Golden & White Tailed and had two otter sightings including a mum playing with two cubs in Leverburgh harbour. The scenery is amazing: all of the beaches are stunning white sand and turquoise sea and our dogs loved running on them all ! The inner roads give you view of mountains, estuaries and peatlands. Although it was cold apart from our arrival day and last afternoon when it rained we enjoyed cold crisp bright days. The owners are friendly but not in your face, but take time out to look at some of Annie's home made Harris Tweed items, we bought a few for some Christmas gifts. We enjoyed our stay, but sadly could not give 5 stars due to the heating on our arrival and the issue in the garden which I advised the owners of, however I would not hesitate in recommending this cottage for couples to stay and don't forget to take your four footed friends who will be made welcome and will love the island.

Just love this cottage...it's like home from home to me. I live on Skye, so I expect something very special when I go on holiday, and Moorfield IS that special place! Annie and Rob are the perfect hosts and have kitted out the cottage so well, you simply couldn't be more comfy, They have vast amounts of local knowledge so you can be sure to make the absolute best of your time on the wondrous Isle of Harris. I have just returned home from my second visit there, it certainly won't be my last! I cannot recommend it highly enough.

We had a fantastic week in Rodel, ideally situated for Harris, Lewis, Bernareay and North Uist. Beautiful beaches and hills. We saw Eagles, otters, porpoise, cuckoo, seals, deer and loads of sea birds.
Annie and Rob were very helpful and friendly, great with the dogs, who loved their dog. Homemade bread was lovely.

Grannie Annie, Rob and Toby were wonderful hosts sharing their knowledge of the island with us and doing everything they could to make our holiday. The loaf of bread was lovely and didn't last very long!
Moordfield Annex was perfect for our needs with the amazing view down to st. Clements. I loved being able to have the door open and watch my dog and Toby run around the garden having great games.
Thanks to Rob for looking after our dog while we did the distillery tour and went to Annie's sowing workshop.
The people across the island were all so lovely and have made us want to return and explore more.

Thank you for taking the time to write such a good review.
It's a perfect place to come for a relaxing holiday even when the weather isn't that great and we always strive to make it easy for the dogs to have a good time as well. We're always happy to keep an eye on the dogs for a while so our visitors can go off for a few hours to do 'undoggy' holiday things.
You're always welcome to come back to Moorfield. Here's hoping we'll see you on another holiday here very soon.

We stayed a couple of weeks here in April and didn't want to leave! The owners Annie and Rob are very welcoming and nothing is too much trouble.
The accommodation has everything you need and the bed is so comfortable had the best nights sleep. There is home made bread and other essentials when you arrive and there is a great shop with petrol station only a couple of miles down the road.
This is the most pet friendly accommodation we've stayed in.
Where else can you see eagles flying overhead while eating breakfast!
We loved it so much we're going again in October.

Wow!
THANK YOU

We really loved having you here and we're very happy that you chose to book again in October.
Dogs are always very welcome here at Moorfield - we even had a guest who brought their cat with them!
Harris is such a brilliant place for dogs to run on the beach without the seasonal restrictions that so many beachside resorts impose on dog owners these days. A long as you're responsible and considerate to other beach users and crofters then it's a doggie paradise.

We're looking forward to seeing you again in October.
