This Victorian lodge with its original features and phenomenal panoramic views is a magnificent yet comfortable family home to escape to for a tranquil holiday.
Elevated above the spectacular Loch Avich, this Victorian Lodge offers guests a breathtaking retreat secluded within a stunning 3,200 acre Argyll estate. The property sleeps 12 guests and two dogs across five bedrooms and has been renovated to capture a traditional feel, retaining original features such as wooden beams, archways, and ceilings. Accessed via a gently meandering road, you are guaranteed privacy in tranquil surroundings, with an abundance of scenic walks throughout the glen.
Inside, the property is spacious and elegant, finished with period-style decor, antique furniture, and vintage curtains and upholstery. The remoteness of this charming house adds to the atmosphere, just the ticket for chilly evenings by the fire, sipping hot cocoa snuggled underneath a tartan blanket. For special occasions, an adjacent cottage with five bedrooms can also be rented, bringing the total house capacity to 17.
The ground floor boasts a choice of rooms for socialising, with a light-filled drawing room complete with open fire, a charming sitting room with enough seating for your entire party, and a fantastic games room with a full-sized billiards table and table tennis table. The kitchen is a cosy space to enjoy light snacks and simple suppers, lovingly prepared using the ample worktop space and superb four-oven AGA-style oven. The formal dining room next door is perfect for a more sophisticated affair, relaxing with fine wine and flickering candlelight.
The quirky staircase with its wooden archway leads upstairs to five comfortable bedrooms and two bathrooms, each following the same style as the rest of the house with wooden picture rails, character furniture, and sumptuous linen. The double bedroom has a handy en-suite with a bath, irresistible for weary explorers in need of a good soak. Guests with young children will find the family room particularly useful, as it sleeps four in the comfort of four single beds. The remaining bedrooms are just as delightful, with stunning views from the windows.
The enclosed garden comprises of a rolling lawn ideal for picnic lunches with a scenic backdrop, or simply a safe place for younger guests and four-legged friends let off some steam. Keen walkers and gentle strollers alike will appreciate easy access to a variety of walks across the craggy landscape, close to the shores of Loch Avich. Remember to pack your binoculars for wildlife spotting too!.
Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.
