A fabulous one-level coastal retreat on the unspoilt Coigach peninsula ideal for families seeking a relaxing holiday walking, fishing and wildlife-spotting.
A true escape to nature, this charming coastal cottage is a must-visit location for those looking for a break from city life. In a hidden gem of the North West Highlands, this home is surrounded by water on three sides and boasts remarkable far-reaching views over the Summer Isles and towards the dramatic Torridon Mountains. Sleeping eight guests across four bedrooms, the home is perfectly set out for families with young kids, offering them the chance to explore local wildlife completely carefree.
This coastal home maintains a seaside style throughout, from its whitewashed exterior walls to the bright white floorboards welcoming you into the lounge. The home has a distinct homely feel, combining various patterned fabrics, cosy fur throws and bright colour schemes, such as the vibrant teal bathroom. Any empty stretches of wall have been adorned with fascinating art works, adding to the kooky feel of the home.
All on one level, this bungalow property puts everything you need at your fingertips. Enter first into the spacious lounge, which offers privacy from the kitchen and dining room through a partition wall. Comfy armchairs face towards a large viewing window with wonderful vistas, a perfect spot for watching for local wildlife. Relax in front of the TV/DVD with the charming pen fire flickering away before you. Fill the living space with music by plugging into the iPod dock and head to the kitchen, which is well-equipped to help you feed the family. Seasonally, prawn, crab and lobster can be ordered from local fishermen, meaning you can prepare wonderfully fresh seafood dishes from the comfort of your home. Sit down at the dining table to enjoy this local produce or wake up with a fresh coffee at the casual breakfast table. All four of the property’s bedrooms are on the ground floor, made up of two double and two twin rooms. Each of these bedrooms boasts an individual colour scheme and large widows offer loch and garden views that will be a treat to wake up to each morning.
Head to the rear of the property to enjoy the private enclosed garden with an outdoor play area for young kids. If the weather is on your side then be sure to plan a family BBQ for an evening on your stay, with garden furniture providing a place to dine alfresco and a fire-pit style BBQ for cooking up a feast. To the front of the property is parking space for three cars. The property has an extra garden cottage which is occasionally inhabited by the property’s owner.
