“Cosy Cottage in Staffin ”
Reviewed 6 October 2017 for a stay in October 2017

My wife and I spent a lovely week at the Barn in Staffin. It is owned by a wonderful gentleman Mr John McKenzie who was so welcoming, friendly and eager to do all he could to make our stay comfortable. He had a peat fire ready for us when we arrived. The cottage is pet friendly & our dog Buddy was welcomed & loved his stay too. The cottage has a twin bedroom with comfortable beds and an en suite toilet & shower room. The other room is a lounge with dining table and sink, cooker, microwave and fridge freezer. There is a TV with great satellite reception. Phone reception on Vodafone is patchy in Staffin. There is an outhouse with kindling and cut peat to use in the burner in the lounge. Cuddling up on the sofa watching the peat fire crackling away with a dram to sip was bliss. We would highly recommend this cottage. The owner is so kind.

“Peaceful and cosy”
Reviewed 9 April 2017 for a stay in April 2017

Lovely cosy cottage with stunning views. John was the most friendly helpful host you could ever hope to meet and his knowledge of the area is fantastic. The scenery and walks around the area are wonderful , and it was lovely to come back to a lovely warm cottage heated by the peat supplied by John.

“Everything you need”
Reviewed 13 November 2016 for a stay in November 2016

After a 15 hour trip we finally got to the barn. The setting is very nice you can see the sea and the location is excellent for exploring the island. Their is also a shop next door should you run out of stuff.
The building consists of 3 rooms., the main room is the living area which consists of kitchen/lounge and dining room the floor is lino but has rugs.The kitchen is very well equipped with every thing you need with a good size fridge and freezer. The lounge area is basic but comfy with a wood/peat burner which is nice once the fire gets going it will warm the place through.the tv is small but acceptable. there is a great book shelf with lots of information about the island .
there is also a dining table and chairs which is adequate.
The bedroom beds are very comfy and again ut has everything you need even alarm clock
bathroom is flagstone floor and can feel cold .
overall its a great property for location and has everything you need .
few tips
Take slippers as the floors can feel cold.
in portree their is a large co op get your shopping from there we found the small shops was extremely expensive

forgot to say the barn has some fantastic features like the high celings

“Stunning spot, cosy barn, friendly owner”
Reviewed 3 June 2015 for a stay in April 2015

Our stay in the barn at staffin will go down as one of our best holidays ever. The spot is stunning, with views of the sea in front and with the dramatic Quirang behind. John was incredibly welcoming and helpful and makes it feel like home from home. It was one of those stays that you just don't want to ever end and you leave already planning your next visit.
