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.
Stunning Location: A twenty-minute drive over the headland from Gairloch takes you to the little village of Poolewe on the sheltered south side of Loch Ewe where the River Ewe rushes down from Loch Maree. Across the bay from Poolewe are the famous Inverewe Gardens, designed and planted by Osgood Mackenzie. 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.
