Once the stone gate house for the Duke of Argyll’s shooting lodge, Ardfenaig Lodge has been lovingly renovated and extended as a self catering cottage accommodating six guests. Great attention to detail and a passion for preserving original features has resulted in a comfortable and luxurious cottage that will make for cherished memories of your stay on the magical Isle of Mull.
Situated along the shore of Loch Caol in 30 acres of forest, lawn, garden and moors, the Lodge is surrounded by natural beauty, abundant wildlife and a great variety of birds. A large deck overlooking Loch Caol invites you to linger, marvelling at the quality of the light and the peace and stillness surrounding you. A picnic table for al fresco dining is at the centre. The deck is off a sunroom with floor to ceiling windows and two comfortable club chairs perfect for reading a good book or just taking in the view. The dining area is located there and opens onto the kitchen that features a Rangemaster Classic range cooker and everything needed to prepare hearty Highland fare after a day of walking, exploring or just relaxing.
The heart of the cottage is the large but cozy sitting room furnished with antiques and chairs and sofa upholstered in Ralph Lauren fabrics. A stone fireplace with multi-fuel stove rises to the vaulted and beamed ceiling. The sitting room also has a large flat screen television with SKY TV and a DVD player. On the ground floor are two en suite bedrooms, one with a king sized bed and the other with twin beds while upstairs is another bedroom with two single built-in beds (one 2’6” wide and the other 3’) and an en suite shower room. Hair dryers are provided in all bedrooms. A laundry room with washer, dryer, airer, small Belfast sink and loo is also on the ground floor, and Wi-Fi broadband is available throughout the Lodge.
Our hope is that you immerse yourself in a simple, unhurried way of life so different from the cities where most of us live and experience the Highland way of life and rich Scottish heritage here on the Isle of Mull.
