Glamping holidays in 2 luxury on-suite, self-catering camping pods in the Outer Hebrides. Situated in the idyllic coastal village of Mangersta in the Uig area of the Isle of Lewis. Each cabin sleeps up to 4 people and is available for nightly and/or weekly holiday lets. They both have one double bed, one sofa bed, table, chairs and mini kitchen with a sink, 2 ring hob, crockery and cooking utensils, microwave and fridge. The en-suite contains a toilet, wash hand basin and sports shower. A water heater, panel heater, full insulation and double glazing keep the pods warm and cosy. Facilities also include a stunning camp fire/BBQ pit set within a circular dry-stone wall. Uig Community Shop (5 miles from Mangersta) has launderette facilities, off-licence, fuel and groceries.
The cabins are a 5min. walk from Mangersta Beach and look out across the North Atlantic. They are located on a working croft where we keep a small herd of Aberdeen Angus cows, Hebridean sheep and poultry. Designated a National Scenic Area, due to the outstanding natural beauty of the coastal landscape, the Uig area is famed for its numerous white shell sand beaches, rocky coves, crystal clear turquoise seas, dramatic cliffs, rugged hills & gentle machair grasslands carpeted with wild flowers during the summer. This wilderness landscape is rich in flora, fauna & bird-life including golden eagles & sea eagles. Mangersta Croft Wigwams are a hidden escape in one of the most beautiful & remote parts of Europe.

Many sites set a maximum occupancy of 6/8 people per pitch, so try breaking your booking down into smaller groups to generate more results. For example, if you’re a group of 10, enter 5 people in your initial search and then book 2 pitches.
However, where the pitch or accommodation occupancy allows it, you can make a booking for up to 30 adults and 30 children in one booking.
To book multiple pitches or accommodation, use the 'Special requests' box on the booking page to ask to be sited together. Complete the booking form for the first booking (you can add a password and save your card so that we remember your details). Then click "Make another booking like this" at the top of the confirmation page to make the next booking.
Large groups: check the listing page for any group restrictions set out in the terms and section titled ‘Please note’.
Large tents/caravans: check the restrictions on unit dimensions to ensure your unit is suitable for the space you will be provided with.
