Just perfect in every way
This was our seventh visit to Shore Croft and every time we return we are always taken aback by the sheer beauty of the surrounding area and the luxurious house. The updated decor and artwork that have been added since our last visit are absolutely stunning. It is hard to imagine a more beautiful property in such a fabulous area with wonderful views and direct access onto the beach! I cannot recommend Shore Croft highly enough.

Fabulous again

This is the second time we’ve visited Shorecroft and it’s still as amazing. A beautifully luxurious property in a wonderful location. Everything you need is provided and the decor and furnishings are top quality. The land around the property is lovely and secure for the dogs and they loved the access to the beach directly from the garden. It’s rare to find such a lovely dog friendly holiday home, we’ve already rebooked for next year.

Our 5th visit to this outstanding property and it is still just as amazing as our first visit. The location is simply stunning with amazing views all around. Inside is wonderful and has been recently decorated to a very high standard. The views from the dining area and living room out across Loch Ewe are breathtaking. Even the kitchen looks out across the Loch so there’s never even a lack of volunteers for washing and drying up whilst trying to spot the otters !!! Shore Croft is wonderfully equipped, has plenty of space and is so comfortable in every aspect. A real home from home. In fact it’s so good we’re already booking up our next visit.

Lovely Home

This is our second visit now to Shore Croft. The views from the house windows and patio are just incredible and the wildlife in the garden is very interesting. We saw rabbits, otters and many different types of birds. We cooked in the lovely kitchen which was very well equipped with some really good quality equipment. The house was absolutely spotless and was always warm and cosy. It was handy having a strong WIFI connection as this meant I could do a little work whilst away. The T.v has sky+ catchup and Netflix which was a bonus. The stars look lovely at night and I thought it was such a lovely touch to have a telescope and binoculars to use. To be honest I couldn’t find any faults it was just such a lovely home and has everything you need for a break away. Thank you again for such a lovely stay.

Perfect as always

We had another wonderful fortnight this year. House is so well equipped, and as we love cooking, it means we don't have to bring much with us.

Lots of attention to detail, and small personal touches, make this feel like a home away from home.

Area around house is very secure for dogs, and drying room great for when the weather is poor (which it was this year).

Underfloor heating in en-suite and bathroom is fabulous. Very comfortable place.

A beautiful dog friendly house in a stunning location

Shore Croft is a very comfortable house in a stunning location. It has a large garden with direct access onto the Loch. The house is dog friendly, and will take up to 4 dogs. The location is superb with great walking on the doorstep, plenty of wildlife to observe and availability of good food. We cannot fault anything and will definitely return.

We had a fabulous week in this lovely house on the west coast of Scotland - the house has everything you could wish for in it and more! Bed very comfy, bathrooms lovely and modern and views spectacular. Saw otters and dolphins and loads of seals. Lots to do in surrounding area.

Ssssh Can shorecroft please just be our little secret?!? What a truly amazing home! Not just a house or cottage this home is a destination in itself! I have stayed in worse 5* hotels! Hilary has literally thought of everything you could ever need or want and even things you didn’t even realise you would want. The comfiest of beds, the most luxurious bedding, the most indulgent scents and soaps, champagne and smoked salmon sourced locally as a welcome treat when you arrive! A fully stocked nespresso machine and pods! A picnic trug, blankets and cushions to take to your very own beach..... did I not mention that you have not one but 2 private beaches!!! No expense has been spared in this house from cutlery, pots, pans to other technology in the house - this hasn’t gone unnoticed and is not the norm for cottage rentals in my opinion - this is completely above and beyond what is expected and is more than appreciated! I haven’t said much about the most stunning of surroundings! This is the most perfect house in the most perfect of locations - not only do you have your own two private beaches, you are close to the most beautiful beaches I have seen or been to ever! Mellon Udrigle beach which is the closest to the house could have been handpicked from the Caribbean! An absolute gem that I hope to spend many a family summer but ssshh it’s our little secret!

Amazing house and absolutely perfect holiday
We had high expectations of Shorecroft being the most expensive house we’d taken over the 20 years of quality rental in Scotland - but wow! Was it worth every penny and more. It not only had the most fantastic view from literally every window - even the bathrooms - but the house itself was so well equipped that you wanted to stay in and not go out! Even in 70 plus degrees. Which of course this summer provided! That said the front decking overlooking the pebbly shore and beautiful cove was simply breathtaking and a view that we shall dine out on during the cold winter months. Our 16yr old daughter said she didn’t want go home! Quite a feat for that age group and our 20yr old son on hearing experiences and seeing our photos (as even good photos on website don’t do justice) felt he’d missed out! A quite simply wonderful home and beautiful location with everything you think you need provided for. You haven’t relaxed and enjoyed Scotland until you come to Shorecroft. Seriously.

We have now had seven family holidays at Shore Croft over the past 10 years. When we first discovered this place, we immediately thought it was just perfect. Perfectly presented and welcoming, we felt at home straight away. There have been small changes over the years, and all of the changes have been for the better (new cooker, dishwasher, fire pit, etc.) and so this property is still our benchmark for self-catering properties.
There are many things to do away from the cottage: The Perfume Studio and Aroma café are always very good, Inverewe Gardens are a must, local beaches are excellent and have superb views.
For us, this is the place to stay in this region.
Oscar, our cockapoo, loved how dog-friendly Shore Croft is, too.

An incredible property in a fabulous location. The pictures don't do it justice ! Everything you could possibly need is provided and it's all beautifully presented, with lovely added touches of soaps and hand creams, not to mention the salmon and champagne. The secure grounds and beach access were perfect for our dogs, they've enjoyed the holiday as much as we have. Can't believe such an amazing place is so dog friendly.

Border Terrier Heaven
We're just back from having a wonderful two weeks down in Mellon Charles. This house has everything you need for a comfortable stay. The kichen is very well equipped, there's a barbecue and decking to make the most of the outdoors, a telescope for wildlife viewing, a super drying room, and views to keep you sane for a few months.

But what makes this property stand out for me is the extensive land around the house which is very well fenced and secure. This allowed my border terrier (Magnus) to roam to his little heart's desire without me worrying about him all the time.

Oh, and no review would be complete without mention of the Nespresso machine that allowed us to get our regular supply of Americano and espresso.

Brilliant Shore Croft
Shore Croft is a wonderful place to stay allowing immediate access to Poolewe Loch. It has been thought out with great care and attention to detail regarding the facilities it offers to allow the aftermath of the many outdoor activities to take place with great ease. The house offers all modern facilities and I would highly recommend to everyone. The beds are very comfortable and the house is lovely and warm. Wendy who looks after the house is an absolute delight, very friendly and eager to help with any issues. One word of warning - make sure you have enough fuel in the tank if you are leaving late at night (as we did). I believe the nearest 24 hour petrol station is at Contin - the first hour of our journey home was 'interesting'!! Fantastic stay - thank you.
