Luxury accommodation at Lews Castle on Isle of Lewis now open for bookings

Natural Retreats’ Lews Castle on the Isle of Lewis, Outer Hebrides is now taking bookings for spectacular Scottish island getaways in a grand and historic setting.

The luxurious accommodation – which ranges from bedroom-only to 3-bedroom self-catering apartments – can now be booked for stays from Easter 2017 onwards, with prices starting from £110 per night for a double bedroom. The apartments benefit from spacious living, kitchen and dining areas which are fully equipped and inclusive of high quality facilities.

Natural Retreats offers all guests a personal concierge service – one of the reasons the company was recently named by Travel + Leisure Magazine as one of the best villa rental agencies in the world.

The iconic Lews Castle was built in the mid-1800s by Sir James Matheson and overlooks Stornoway Harbour on the Isle of Lewis, which has previously been voted the number one European island to visit on Trip Advisor.

The castle’s grand and beautifully restored ground floor rooms, which can be hired as a luxury wedding or conferencing venue, opened their doors this summer along with the Storehouse Café and Outfitters Store, which are open seven days a week. Museum nan Eilean, Comhairle nan Eilean Siar’s popular new visitor attraction which is home to some of the world-famous Lewis Chessmen, is also located within Lews Castle.
Matt Spence, founder of Natural Retreats said:

“Lews Castle will offer travellers a luxurious break in a breathtaking, inspiring location. The apartments and bedrooms will be a perfect blend of the classic and contemporary, staying true to the building’s Victorian origins but adding the modern touches that travellers expect, such as free WiFi, flat screen televisions, luxury toiletries and high quality linen and towels.

“As always, we’ll be paying attention to detail and will be adding some local touches and a wide variety of locally sourced furnishings that reflect the opulence of the castle.“To really help make your getaway extra-special, our team can also organise activities on your behalf, such as segway trails, mountain biking, walking tours, sailing, private castle tours, whisky tasting and many other adventures. You can also visit the Castle’s new museum, which has six of the world famous 12th century ivory Lewis Chessmen on permanent display.”

With direct flights to Stornoway from Inverness, Glasgow and Edinburgh airports that take around an hour or less, and flights from Manchester also available, Lews Castle is more accessible than you might think.
