About This Listing
Our caravan is next to our house with the beautiful backdrop of the hills of Skye, we have 4 cats and 2 dogs around our (website hidden) facilities, and breakfast basket for the first night. One double room, one single room and seat converts to double
The Caravan is perfect for a family hire! or friends on vacation. The minimum stay is 1 night. The price for that is £100 due to the cleaning and laundry involved just for 1 night! However for 2 or more nights stay please mail me first and request the deal of £83 per night!
we are 9 miles from the Cuillin Hills mountain range popular with climbers from all over the world. we are based 2 miles from Portree which is the 'capital' of Skye, and has a population of 2.5 thousand people. overall Skye now has a population of over 12 thousand people now. Portree has a small village of shops where you can buy hand made soap, eat out and various shops and butcher and tourist centre etc, there is also a public swimming pool with sauna and steam room, climbing wall, badminton court, gym and Aros has a small cinema that shows films fri - sun only. There is also a horse riding centre right next to our croft, where you can do a trek or spend the day there. If you book the whole week it's discounted to £350
you will need a car to get to ours from Portree, or we have a local taxi service right next to us, and also there is local car hire available.
Guests are asked to smoke outside as we do ourselves! Guests are asked to respect the caravan, all the flooring has just been refurbed, so would be good if you could remove muddy shoes/boots at the door! the caravan should be left tidy and the crockery and cooking facilities cleaned and put back away!
gas cooker/hob with grill and oven and gas boiler for shower, gas provided, kettle and toaster and microwave
Tiffany is really helpful, friendy and flexible host. We were absolutely content with her and with the caravan as well. If we go back to Skye we will contact her again!
Thank you so much Tiffany! :-)
The caravan was super, clean and easy to find with the directions of Tiffany. It was very well situated. The many choices of breakfast were really appreciated. Would recommand for sure!
Tiffany welcomed us with a bright smile and showed us around the van. The layout is perfect for a group of three or four. We were unfortunate in that the night was cold, wet and windy and the noise of pelting rain on the caravan roof and windows prevented a decent sleep. Also the innerspring mattress on the double bed is well past its best and it was difficult to get comfortable, however there was sufficient heating and bedding. The cooking facilities were as described, however not as clean as we like. We left early the next morning and didn't get a chance to speak to our host but have left private feedback about our stay.
We can only recommend Tiffany's caravan. It was clean and cozy and had plenty of space for the three of us. The breakfast with milk, cereals, eggs and toast was also very good!
There is only one limitation if you'd like to visit some Portree Pubs in the evening. Although Tiffany's place belongs to Portree it is roughly 3 miles out of its center - quite a walk during the night ;)
If you are on Skye just for the countryside it's propably the perfect place for your stay.
Her lively dogs are always enthusiastic for playing football - all day long if you want...
Tiffany fue muy amable! Nos pasamos de largo al llegar pero luego pudimos encontrar la casa, las indicaciones de Tiffany fueron de mucha ayuda! Todo es tal cual se muestra en la publicación, muy conformes con todo! Nos sentimos realmente cómodos.
Sus dos perros son divinos!!
Nos quedamos muy contentos con esta elección, y mas si estás en auto. No se si es tan cómodo de otra forma.
Everything in the caravan was as described. We were greeted by two lovely dogs and the enthusiastic Tiffany and her family who explained the details on how to use everything. The kitchen is fully equipped and we were able to prepare our meal using the gas-oven. The picnic basket with bread and cereals was waiting for us with milk in the fridge.
The weather was very bad, a lot of rain and wind, which rocked the caravan quite a bit. This combined with the short (feet outside) and lousy bed made for a poor night sleep. If you can avoid the main double bed as the mattress is really a box spring without a proper mattress on top. You feel the springs poking your body all night. Our children using the other beds slept fine though.
We enjoyed Skye and the rural surroundings. The caravan is old but functional and well heated.
The host is very nice to us. We apologize fo being late to reach this place. Tiffany had waited for us until we reach there around 1am. We felt guilty for that. The caravan was so convenient for us. We slept very well. The owner put some foods in the fridge and basket for us.
I can't say anything bad because everything is good for us while staying here.
About the Host, Tiffany
We are a couple with young children and lots of animals around the house next to the caravan, in close proximity are our relatives on the same croft, and also another guest house. Its an amazing area, with spectacular skyeline and sunsets that look so different every night! in the summer the sunsets at around 9pm and it's still light till 1am, mid summer it hardly gets dark at all!
