OPEN Lewis Longhouse

Short Breaks

Enjoy an indulgent break

For that special short break, or to linger longer, this autumn into winter, we invite you to come enjoy the peace of the Scottish Outer Hebrides from the calming tranquility of our Lewis Longhouse. Decide when you want to arrive and how long you want to linger and let us help you make it happen! Between November and March each year, we can welcome you any day of the week for 3 nights or more.

You have found the perfect place to feel the stresses of your daily life disappear. Welcome!  Within a couple of hours you can be here … breathe in, relax and enjoy your stay in our lovely, 5 star holiday home from home. Between September and April, make the Lewis Longhouse your luxurious base for an indulgent short break whether for two, or to celebrate a special family occasion, make the most of Christmas or New Year, or to simply escape for a well-deserved long weekend.

Our welcome gift of local food goodies, and a few festive extras for Christmas/NY bookings, some great big skies and that comfy armchair by the stove await your arrival.  Whatever time of year, watch in awe at the ever changing colours and moods of the sky through vast windows.  Step outside on a crisp, clear night and look up at an inky dark sky lit up with stars, spot the Milky Way or occasional displays of the Northern Lights.

Watch the seasons change and blow away the cobwebs with an exhilarating beach walk – a different sort of wonderful to summer.

Enjoy the light and tranquil feeling inside whilst outside the weather tries its best and experience 4 seasons in a day! Winters are usually mild, other than some great stormy winds to cosy up against indoors in stylish surroundings.

For a suitably indulgent break, the island’s delis stock a lovely selection of gourmet treats. If you want a ready-stocked fridge, then just let us know. Enjoy a supper of local scallops, crab, smoked fish or freshly-caught langoustines followed by local cheeses and crackers.

The Longhouse

The Longhouse, on the Isle of Lewis, is set low on the hillside 50m walk from the beach with wide, uninterrupted views east, south and west. Soak up the views and watch the skies change through floor-to-ceiling windows, south over the bay and reeds beds, east to stunning sunrises over that bay or west to a sunset over the moors.
