Escape to these splendid holiday cottages in a peaceful elevated rural setting with wonderful views over open countryside and the hills beyond.
The Knock (ref SSAU), a peaceful cosy retreat for two, is the gable end of a traditional farm steading, completely private with its own access, large garden with private hot tub and splendid view of the surrounding hills and countryside. It has a spacious comfortable living room perfect for curling up with a book and relaxing or planning your activities for the next day. The Steading (ref SSAV) is an original farm steading dating back to the 1800’s and has now been sympathetically renovated and modernised, yet maintaining much of the original character. Set on the side of a hill you have a panoramic view of the stunning scenery including the Balachroich wild flower meadow. This is the perfect location for friends and family to spend time together with ample space for all. You can practice your cooking skills in the large kitchen and the dining room table is large enough for the whole party to enjoy dinner together and then retire to the living room with vaulted ceiling and cosy wood-burning stove and a great southerly view. With so much to do in the surrounding area if you have any energy left you can round off you day with a game of pool in the games room and then sink into your private hot tub, this is a great clear sky location, to admire the stars at night.
A perfect all year round location with activities to suit all tastes, from the front door there are tracks and hills to explore on foot or bike.
