This cottage is a haven far away from city worries. Surrounded by the climbs and moors of the wild Strath Oykel, a lush valley area, this is your very own slice of the Highlands.
Sleeping 12 guests across six bedrooms, this spacious lodge is set on a working farm in a spectacular location in the Strath Oykel, a lush green valley in the Northern Highlands wilderness. It’s ideal for guests who want to escape busy lifestyles and go off-grid for a proper holiday catch-up with friends, or to celebrate a family occasion.
This magnificent holiday home has been thoughtfully restored to provide all the facilities guests need for the most comfortable of stays, while retaining its charming original features and period character. Road access is along a farm track while inside, country-style interiors in calming hues creates a warm ambience. A series of halls and staircases guide you through to all parts of the house and a cleverly designed adjoining annexe can be used as part of the main accommodation or can be blocked off for smaller parties.
On the ground floor, there’s a traditional dining room and kitchen leading to a sitting room where guests can relax after a long day’s hike and enjoy by the cosy wood burner. Mealtimes are a breeze with the Aga and two-oven electric addition, and there’s also an electric oven and hob so there’s ample space to create large feasts. There’s also a scullery and utility room with kitchen appliances, an American-style fridge-freezer and sturdy worktops. The spacious living room enjoys incredibly comfortable sofas by an open fire with spectacular garden and countryside views through the large picture windows. Enjoy fun evenings in the games room which can also double up as an additional dining room. After muddy treks, the rear entrance into the boiler drying and boot room is ideal. There’s a private annexe on the ground floor with its own living space, including a kitchen, two bathrooms, and two twin bedrooms; it can be reached by a separate entrance or by the secret bookcase in the main house games room.
Head upstairs from the main hallway to find four charming bedrooms (one en-suite) with incredibly comfortable beds and crisp linens, plus two family bathrooms – one with a spa bath. There’s also an annexe wing on this floor with two twin bedrooms (one en-suite) and a family bathroom.
Outside, there are enclosed private walled gardens to enjoy, and a farm steading sits behind the property. There’s unlimited parking available on-site for guests.
Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.
Please note there is a refundable £250 security deposit for this property payable closer to the start of your holiday.
