“Wonderful”
Reviewed June 22, 2017 for a stay in June 2017

I was looking at places to stay for our few days in Skye and picked this one based on good reviews and not much else. It is one of the most wonderful places I have ever stayed. I would give it 17 stars if I could. It was just magical-- cozy, complete, wonderful views, pretty but restful and cozy decor, wonderful bathtub, great kitchen, secluded little garden with tables to enjoy outdoor tea. Just wonderful in every respect. Close to Armadale Castle, the ferry, and a very decent little shop for picking up necessities. It was very hard to leave this wonderful cottage and beautiful part of the world.

“Perfect for our requirements!”
Reviewed June 3, 2017 for a stay in May 2017

Needed teenager and pet friendly accommodation - the Old Church fitted the bill perfectly! Skye was great to explore and the flexible layout of the Old Church allowed us to relax after a long day.The TV didn't work but the wifi was a good speed. Beds were comfortable and the house was clean, lovely bathrooms and everything we needed was there to cook, wash and dry clothes and generally feel at home. Definitely recommend.

Thank you so much for your comments. We are delighted you liked the house so much - we do our best to make it a "home from home". What a pity you didn't give us a ring about the TV - we would have been happy to help sort it out. We leave all contact numbers available and are happy to help guests with ANY aspects of their stay. The TV was new in April so i didn't think it could be faulty. It has been fine - perhaps too many remote controls!! We hope you will come and stay with us again another time.

“Beautiful accommodation”
Reviewed November 11, 2015 for a stay in June 2015
1
person found this review helpful

This is a beautiful building with lots of room and lots of character. The location is very good close to the ferry. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, but I have to make a note about cleanliness: there were ashes in the fire place, dried pasta in one of the pans and the bilding as a whole was often very dusty. Furthermore the kitchen is very small for the amount of guests that can be accommodated here and the blunt knives, among other things, make it very difficult to cook. I'd like to recommend the owner to have a look at these things, so future guests will enjoy there stay even more. Would book again.

“What an experience!”
Reviewed August 12, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

My wonderful experience started with Carole the owner, we communicated often via email as I had problems receiving information - Carole was very patient, friendly and helpful. (Thank you!)
6 of us spent 4 days and 3 nights at the Old Church Cottage and quite simply loved it. The original 'church' sense is very strong but with a unique character of its own. Three clean, large bathrooms, 2 large dining areas, 2 sitting areas: we had more than enough room. Quirky touches like the stained glass window and the books in every room just made the cottage.
Skye is of course very picturesque but there were literally beautiful views from every window!
Everything you could need and more were provided and there are nearby shops for extras.
What amazing memories we were able to create here as a family - 10/10

“Lovely house, lovely location”
Reviewed January 9, 2015 for a stay in December 2014

The house was great, there was more than enough room for all 10 of us. Everything was clean and set-up for us coming in and the owner was very helpful in making sure that everything we needed to start off with was there (loo roll, tea and coffee, milk, wood for the fire etc). The location was beautiful. Thanks for a great holiday, we would definitely come back!

“Fantastic family holiday”
Reviewed November 21, 2014 for a stay in November 2014

The old church is like a home from home!! We have previously rented the house before the changes and was the first time we have seen the improvements we love the en-suite it is quirky and in-keeping with the style of the house. Our two year old daughter loved to see the water from the window in the living room and the spacious garden. The owner responded quickly to our e-mail as we booked last minute and could not be more helpful. The only problem with the old church is having to leave!
