All about Ellie’s place

The Wee Van is a 10x28ft static caravan which offers cosy, comfortable accommodation for 2 in the pretty seaside village of Broadford. It has been renovated and features double glazing, new full-sized cooker with gas hob, gas water heater and a log burner for extra comfort. There is also a smart TV with Netflix etc., wifi and an eclectic mix of books and games. Located behind the family home, the Wee Van is a small, simple (and slightly quirky) private haven for the budget-conscious visitor.

The space
The Wee Van is situated behind the family home, off the main road at the top of the driveway. While the van does not have a sea view, a short walk to the end of the driveway and community gardens rewards with views across Broadford Bay. The van borders an untended field and small plantation of old-growth pine trees which are home to a host of garden birds, nesting herons, hedgehogs and the occasional otter. The accommodation has a private access and space in front for parking, as well as an under-cover area to store bikes and muddy boots. Inside the van guests will enjoy a fully-equipped kitchen with tea, coffee, sugar, salt, pepper and cooking oil provided. The bright open-plan lounge area has a comfy sofa, beanbag chair, TV, small dining table, storage space and fireplace. A fire will be set for your arrival with a starter amount of matches, fire lighters, paper, kindling and logs. There is a separate bedroom with a small double bed, bedside table, lamps, hanging rail, mirror and leafy views. The bathroom has a loo, sink and shower. All linens, bedding and towels are provided.

A few things to note:
- The Wee Van does not have a sea view.
- The Wee Van is a caravan (a few past guests seem to have missed this…!)
- The Wee Van is 'compact and bijoux' - it is small and simple and won't be to everybody's taste! But if you are looking for a clean, comfy, affordable accommodation option then the Wee Van has everything you need for a relaxed stay on Skye :)

Where you’ll be

Broadford, United Kingdom

Located in the heart of Broadford an eclectic mix of bars, restaurants, cafes, galleries and gift shops are within walking distance, as are conveniences including a supermarket, fuel station and post office. Though the Wee Van does not enjoy sea views, a (very) short walk of 20 or so steps down the driveway will reward you with views of Broadford bay and there are a number of picturesque walks and hikes suitable for all abilities that begin from the village. Details of these and others across the island are provided in the Van. Broadford is a 10 minute drive from the Skye Bridge and all of Skye's main attractions and activities are within an hours' drive of the Wee Van including the island's capital Portree, the Old Man of Storr, Quiraing, the Fairy Pools, Cuillin mountain range, the Sleat peninsula, Elgol, and Dunvegan and Eilean Donan castles.

Welcome to Skye! I was born and raised here, and after a 10 year stint of studying, working and travelling overseas I've come home and now live in Broadford with my husband Matt and our black labrador Buster. I work in wildlife conservation which together with being a local means I know and am happy to share some of the best wildlife watching spots, photo ops, rambles and road trip routes off the main tourist trail. During my travels I picked up lots of handy hints and tips for running my own little holiday accommodation biz, which I hope is reflected in the warm, welcoming and homely charm of Marble Cottage Holiday Let, the Wee Van and Tully Beag.

During your stay

Directions and details of key collection will be shared prior to your arrival so you can access the property independently. I do not greet guests in person on arrival and depending on my work schedule (I work full-time which often involves odd hours on remote fieldwork) may not meet you during your stay. However my parents live in the main house and will be available to assist if I’m not :)
