SHORE CROFT A LUXURY HOUSE ON THE BEACH

Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday home in Mellon Charles - Shore Croft

Detached house sleeping up to 8 people with stunning views on the beach

Shore Croft was built to take full advantage of its unique situation, facing south with direct access onto a pebble beach on Loch Ewe, with panoramic views out to sea. The house has a very large enclosed garden with various seating areas which allow for superb wildlife viewing.

The whole interior is beautifully designed, arranged and maintained. It is light, modern and luxurious. The sitting room and dining room/kitchen open onto wide decking from which a path leads to the garden gate which opens directly on to the beach. The house is extremely well equipped with an open fire in the sitting room. There are 4 bedrooms. A master bedroom with an en suite wet room and either 3 twin bedrooms or 2 twin and a king. There is a full bathroom / wet room upstairs as well as a downstairs loo. The kitchen / dining room is extremely large and very well equipped with a large modern range cooker and American fridge freezer.

There is an extremely large (approx 1 acre), fenced garden which has a wonderful wildlife viewing area. The wildlife sightings from this viewing area are exceptional and include otters, common dolphin, harbour porpoise and several different rare sea birds. There is also a seating area around a fire pit.

This is a romantic retreat for couples or a holiday home for up to 8 people.

Carry on along the coast for another 5 miles and you will come to the small village of Aultbea and then onto Mellon Charles at the head of the loch. From Shore Croft there are views to the Torridon mountains and out to the open sea, where on a clear day you can see the outer Hebrides. Shore Croft and the small bungalow next door share the pebbly beach, and are on the furthest edge of the settlement.

Beautiful house and location in NW Scotland

  • 5 out of 5
My family is difficult to please when it comes to holiday homes and my architect wife is able to find flaws in almost any building. Choosing a good location isn't always easy particularly when what is portrayed on the web doesn’t always fully reflect what you get for real.
Was Shore Croft going to be as good as portrayed on the web?
We'll, it was very much better than portrayed on the web. All of us loved every minute of our stay.
My wife in particular loved it so much she wants to return soon.
The location is wonderful, with really beautiful views. The vista from the kitchen diner and living room are a joy to behold. And waking up each morning to such scenic bedroom views is an experience in itself.
The house is excellently laid out, decorated thoughtfully, and very well kitted out. The rooms are generously proportioned. We really found everything we needed and felt very at home.
We also enjoyed the outside seating and views. The nearby store and newsagent in Aultbea was very well stocked and fulfilled our needs.
We found Shorecroft’s location to be great for outings, we particularly liked the nearby Inverewe Garden.

Altogether very highly recommended!

Stunning house in awesome location

  • 5 out of 5
Stayed here again and if possible each year is better. Superbly appointed and fitted out house in the most glorious setting. Wild otters and seals were spotted from the wildlife viewing areas and beautiful anenomies on the shoreline as the tide goes out. Can't recommend this house enough. It is beautiful and all the admin associated with it works superbly. Will be going back again!!

A Wonderful Place

  • 5 out of 5
The views are stunning. The surrounding area is really beautiful with plenty of good walking and wildlife spotting. The house is spacious, warm, clean, comfortable and very well equipped. Everything is really good quality. The owners have put a lot of thought into anticipating the requirements of guests, right down to the bottle of champagne and salmon for us on arrival, which made us feel very welcome.
I can't recommend Shorecroft highly enough, we loved our time there.

Beautiful 5 Star holiday home

  • 5 out of 5
We had a wonderful and comfortable time at Shorecroft. Cooking in the well equipped kitchen was a joy. Everything is very clean and looked after by the house keepers. There was an endless supply of coal and wood for the open fire which we enjoyed every night. The views from the house are unspoilt and we enjoyed to small beach a stones from away from the house. This is the perfect house if you want to get away from it all and want to stay in luxury.

five star luxury

  • 5 out of 5
great location with spectacular views and sunsets .cottage is wonderful and very comfortable ,very much five star.
we were a family of four with two older teenagers we did not travel to far from the cottage but found plenty to enjoy in the area ,golf and boat trips at gairloch fun , light lunches at the perfume factory well worth it . several great beaches close bye . we also did a fair bit of fishing of the rocks in front of the cottage and got a good number of decent size fish up to 5lb spinning but be careful of the high tide as it can cut of your retreat .good holiday
