Cottages for families and friends in and around Carbost

Many holiday cottages to discover!

In Carbost, whatever time of year, and whoever you are with, we have a few suggestions for essentials to take along. Preparing for a little rain is always a good plan. An umbrella and an anorak or rain coat can get everyone smiling even on the worse days.

We think a good book is another essential. Not just an opportunity to catch up on your reading, but also to pass the time waiting for everyone else to get themselves ready, or wait out the rain! Although you can buy your essential food and drink items locally, it's great to have them with you so you can make a sandwich or a cup of coffee as soon as you arrive. We're often asked which is the best place to stay, and it's so hard to answer, it really depends what you are looking for. 

Carbost Accomodation

Carbost holiday accommodation rates increase in peak season, which is generally around the times of the school summer holidays. July and August are usually Highland school summer holidays. 

The private and state schools tend to have differing half-term dates, but normally the first half of June is summer half-term. Although we really encourage you too book your cottage early, there are opportunities for last minute bookings, so it can be worth checking. 

More and more cottages seem to be signing up with agencies to help with their bookings.

Holiday Cottages

All the booking agents we work with have good customer service teams, so please contact them if you have additional questions or encounter any problems. Some of the best cottages in Carbost are really excellent and so we encourage you to make your reservation as soon as possible to avoid availability disappointment. 

The cottage owners may leave some hints for good places to visit nearby and on occasion we've even found that they'll suggest a specific pub or restaurant where you can get a discount. Carbost has long been popular as a place to stay and we encourage you to investigate the surrounding area as much as possible. 

Some properties will ask for a security deposit before your arrival date - although this is required in a minority of accommodation and you will be advised at time of booking. 

Families, Friends and More

Self-catering is an ideal way to holiday in Carbost. No pressure from the owner to eat meals at specific times, when you are self-catering the food is ready when you want it to be ready. 

Eat what you want, whenever you want it. And of course that's particularly good if anyone in your party suffers from food allergies or has other dietary requirements. A large number of our visitors like to use their stay as an opportunity to just put their feet up, gaze at the scenery, take an afternoon nap, and enjoy a nice home cooked meal. Just taking it easy in Carbost. 

For many, however, its a chance to really do something active, from running and mountain biking to swimming and climbing.
