October Break
Just returned from a week long stay here. The Old Croft House did not disappoint as it was lovely. Very welcoming and cosy. Had everything you needed and more for a self catering stay. Super clean. It was lovely to see that the cottage looked exactly like the photographs as sometimes when you've made a booking online, when you get there, it's completely different. Not the case here Beautiful views from the cottage. Only 10 mins walk away from the beach. Very well based to see the sites of Skye. Kilt Rock, The Quairaing and The Old Man of Storr to name a few. Portree is 17 miles or so away from the house and has a few shops and a large Co-op for food shopping essentials. Would advise to take plenty of supplies with you when you go. There is a village shop and a take away in Staffin. Although unfortunately tea room closed at the time we were there. No pub!! We were quite surprised at how bad the main road from Portree to Staffin was and it doesn?t really get any better further up the island. For being a main road for all traffic, it could be in a better state of repair. Covid restrictions in place so unfortunately that did impact on eating out as the hotels in Portree had to stop serving food by 6pm. Alcohol could be served but only outside, so you couldn?t enjoy an alcoholic drink with your meal, which we found a bit odd. But that can?t be helped and that's just the way things have to be at the moment. On the whole, we had a lovely break away. The scenery is amazing, even in the rain.

Superb accommodation in Staffin
My family and I recently stayed at the Old Croft Cottage in Staffin for part of our Easter holiday. It was a good base from which to explore Skye and was close to the lovely bay, the Old Man of Storr and the Quirang. The house was very well equipped and beautifully furnished. It was cosy and the owners were very helpful whenever we had any questions.

The Old Croft house is a beautiful warm and cosy cottage in a really stunning location, not to mention easy to get to. The cottage had everything to suit our needs. The owners answered emails very quickly and the communication was great. We would highly recommend this property.
