A four-bedroom traditional cottage, set on the Applecross Estate, perfect for families and friends seeking a tranquil base from which to explore the Scottish Highlands and coastline.
Located in a beautiful estate on the tranquil Wester Ross peninsula, this comfortable and welcoming property offers traditional and cosy accommodation for eight guests. This beautiful cottage makes an ideal holiday home for a larger family or small group seeking a fantastic holiday base. The holiday lodge is part of Applecross House and can be rented by larger groups in tandem with the neighbouring property, Faoilinn. The estate offers stunning views of the Cuillin Mountains of Skye and the hills of Raasay. Highland cattle can be found grazing in fields around the lodge and wild deer can often be spotted nearby.
Stepping inside this light, spacious and airy lodge you will find tastefully decorated and attractively furnished living areas, and a choice of cosy, comfortable bedrooms. For guests who have also booked the neighbouring cottage, an interconnecting passage joins the two properties.
Decorated in cool, neutral tones, the inviting lounge is an ideal space to relax in at the end of a great day, with plenty of comfortable seating, a TV and a glass-fronted wood burner ideal for winter evenings. The bright and attractive dining room is a perfect space for sharing a special meal. You could also enjoy a snack or breakfast in the farmhouse-style kitchen/diner which features all the equipment you may need, including an oil-fired Rayburn and delightful country dining table. Two charming bedrooms can also be found on the ground floor: a single and a double, each with a delightful en-suite shower room. The ground floor also features a handy utility room and a WC.
Heading up to the first floor, there are two further bedrooms: a twin and a triple room with three single beds. Please note these rooms do have quite low, sloping ceilings. There’s also a bathroom and an additional WC.
The lodge is set in the heart of the beautiful Applecross Estate, which extends for 260 square kilometres and features a wealth of beautiful woodlands, spectacular mountains, secluded beaches and stunning lochs. The popular Applecross Walled Garden and Restaurant (0.1 miles) nestles at the edge of Bealach na Ba, and offers a range of great food and drink. You can also head to the famous Applecross Inn (1 mile) which enjoys fabulous views over the Inner Sound of Raasay. With miles of wonderful walks to enjoy from the doorstep, this fantastic lodge makes an ideal base for keen walkers, cyclists and nature-lovers seeking a blissful retreat in gorgeous surroundings.
