The Cottage

Sleeps 2-3

(STL Licence No. AR00491F)


The Cottage as its name suggest was many years ago a small croft house but as crofts were amalgamated people began to move to the villages and the cottages became farm steadings for storing feed and equipment.

The Cottage originally had a half loft and so in keeping with its heritage we have built a mezzanine bedroom where the loft once was with large Velux windows giving views of the surrounding area and down to the rocky coast. At the top of the staircase we have created a small seating area bathing in the light from these windows.

The living area is full height creating a light and airy space with a roof Velux and two small windows which are deep set because of the thick walls of the original house giving it a cosy feel. With the thick well insulated walls and the air source underfloor heating this is a warm and inviting house to stay in whether it be winter or summer.

The kitchen is well equipped with Oven/hob/fridge/freezer/microwave and toaster, we also have installed a hot water tap for teas & coffees. There is a small folding table and stools provided. Next to the kitchen of a small hallway is the shower room. At the entrance is a porch for wellies and waterproofs outside & opposite of which is private seating and a small walled area for barbecuing (BBQ available on request).

The bedroom can either be set up as a twin or super king bedded room. There is also a sofa bed in the living room. There is a flat screen TV and internet.
