A bright, cosy home in the town of Gairloch on Strath Bay, close to the beach and surrounded by beautiful Highland countryside.
When approaching Gairloch along the Strath Bay coast road, your eyes will be drawn to a row of pretty, whitewashed cottages and this property is one of them. Close to the village centre and with the sea on your doorstep, it's the perfect setting for a memorable holiday. Its location in the centre of the village means it's within easy walking distance of shops, places to eat and drink and, of course, several sandy beaches to walk along.
This cottage has been completely renovated and modernised to an excellent standard while incorporating all the original features of this west-coast cottage. With two wood burners in the ground-floor rooms, plus central heating and double glazed windows throughout, you can be warm and cosy while watching the waves on the rocks just metres from the front door. Facing south, the front of the house enjoys the sun throughout the year, and during the summer, the sunsets towards the Isle of Skye are remarkable. Even in the depths of winter, you can sit and admire the views from the snug sea-facing porch. Directly in front of the house is a sloping grassed area leading to the rocks and the sea.
The ground floor has been opened up to give a stone-floored spacious living and dining area with dining table, sofa and wood burner. Leading off is a bright, fully fitted kitchen with access to the split-level decking and small rockery garden to the rear. Off to the left is a large lounge which has been decorated and furnished with vibrant, warm colours and tweeds, a wood burner, TV and ample seating for four. There is a small WC on the ground floor.
The stairs, first-floor landing and bedrooms are all carpeted and decorated in brilliant white with matching bed linen, tweed and tartan accessories and solid wood furniture and beds. The twin is the slightly smaller of the two bedrooms, but both have sea views, window seating and plenty of storage space. The king-size bedroom has additional seating and roof Velux windows making it a lovely bright room. Wi-Fi is available free of charge, and there is also an iPod dock, which is Bluetooth enabled.
Please note there is a refundable £150 security deposit for this property payable closer to the start of your holiday.
