Spacious and Light
The house provides very comfortable accommodation – the Lounge/Dining and Kitchen are open plan, which makes for relaxed living.
You enter the Cottage from the porch at the rear of the property, where the washer and dryer are located. The large patio doors in the Lounge give wonderful views south across Loch Indaal to the other side of Islay, and south-west towards Northern Ireland, as well as access to the patio and picnic table. There is Internet TV and books for rainy days. There is a solid fuel stove between the living and dining areas. We can order coal ahead of your visit, if you like. (£15/bag)
The dining area seats 6 people and connects to the kitchen with an island and 2 bar stools. The kitchen is well-equipped and has a dishwasher, coffee maker and microwave.
The main bedroom is at the back of the cottage and has a king-sized bed and ensuite shower room. It has plenty of storage for suitcases and clothes. There is a double bedroom, with twin beds and a room with one single bed at the front of the house. These rooms would share the main bathroom.
Outside, there is a spacious garden, mostly grassed, with areas to sit and enjoy the views or for children to run around. It is completely fenced, except for the open driveway. It is a great place to watch birds come and go in the different seasons. There is also a little shed stocked with firewood, which can be padlocked if you wish to store bikes, etc.
(The adjoining garage and allotment are not available with the Cottage, but you may be lucky enough to get a lettuce from the gardener, if the rabbits don’t get them first!) There’s a small clothesline at the front and a “whirly” dryer to the side of the garden.
The Cottage is very much a non-smoking and pet-free home, due to allergies.
