Well behaved! dog on request only, fee £ 75 Dog Policy applies Wifi available, De Longhi luxury bean to cup coffee machine, DVD, TV, Blue tooth speaker. Non smoking Go out for long walks and in winter, cuddle by the stove gazing out at storm-lashed seas, watch the sun rise or enjoy sunsets from the panoramic window. Or bubble in the Jacuzzi bath after a long walk on the beach in all-singing, all-dancing pristine comfortable bathrooms with a small Sauna and fluffy tartan towels. Children love it being so close to the beaches and sea, building sandcastles, catching shrimps or little fish in the puddles, swim in the sea, or enjoy body boarding in the waves. Northton is the ideal base to explore the islands and spend your family holidays! You'll love it if you crave adventure, for this far-flung crofting town on Harris's south coast, with jewel like white sandy beaches, transforms the Machair in spring sunshine into a stunning sweep of wild flowers and birds. Wild walks and birdwatching and other wildlife like Otters, Seals, Porpoises are the main attraction. Golfers find their way to the Harris golfclub, voted as the most beautiful golf course on the Atlantic shores, just a 5 min, drive away. For fishing, we will advise you on fresh water fishing or sea fishing when here. Feel welcome to come and stay to experience the true Hebridean relaxed lifestyle, walk the beaches, have a drink by the fire, enjoy the Sauna and bubbles, looking out over the white sandy beaches and turquoise Atlantic! Live the Life on the Edge! And....maybe experience the Northern Lights or Aurora Borealis. Or maybe walking or cycling the Hebridean Way? You can find another listing, our daughter's wellness let, Sea View House at Srannda/Strond, accommodating 2-4 adults, 5 star luxury with a Double Jacuzzi, Sauna for 2, large shower, Wood burning stove and breath taking panoramic views over the ocean. Two bedrooms and ensuite bathrooms. If interested in Sea View House, please enquire direct for details, prices and special offers.More

About the neighbourhood
The cottages cluster opposite a seafood joint; Julie and Steve are happy to deliver their home made fresh seafood meals piping hot to the cottage. Gail and Ruben from the Temple Cafe at Northton serve lovely coffee and teas and are known for their excellent home baking. All great after a good walk to the Temple, up the hills, or a day out swimming or playing at one of the four Norhton beaches or spectacular Scarista beach and estuary opposite the cottages. It is a 5 min walk to Northton beach 1, walk further towards beach 2,3,4, and 5 and the Temple ruin or walk from the cottage over the vast expanse of Scarista beach to ocean's edge. Jan and Suzan of Beachview Cottages are exceptionally warm, fun hosts who go out of their way for you or leave you in peace to enjoy fishing, biking, seal...
