A charming and authentic 16th century Highland cottage close to Loch Awe, Argyll, which provides a cosy country retreat in the village of Kilchrenan. It has recently been redecorated retaining the cottage style and further extended to provide extra sleeping accommodation. It has an enclosed, pet-friendly garden, outdoor decking, dining area, woodshed and rope swing.
The main cottage is over two levels. Downstairs there is an entrance hall, leading off to kitchen, living room and bathroom. The living room has a wood burning stove, and is comfortably furnished including a sofa-bed for extra guests. The kitchen has a Rayburn stove, not only for cooking but also heating the water which keeps the cottage constantly cosy. There is also a dishwasher, gas cooker, microwave and fridge. Stairs lead off from the kitchen to two charming upstairs bedrooms (one double and one twin). Outwith the main cottage accommodation there is a conjoined modern extension with separate entrance, ideal if two families are sharing. There is one main wooden clad chalet-style twin bedroom and a small twin bedroom upstairs accessed by way of a fixed ladder. This is ideal for older children (though perhaps not for small children as it has a hatch opening). There is also a toilet and shower. The extension also houses the washing machine and tumble dryer.
Overall, the cottage sleeps six people comfortably, with space for eight (and ten at a push using the sofa bed!). There is Wi-Fi and electric wall heating throughout, and TV through an Amazon firestick, DVD player and record player and boombox in the living room.
The cottage is close to beautiful Loch Awe with boating and fishing opportunities, as well as wonderful views of sunsets over the water. It sits in lovely countryside with many walking, climbing and cycling routes nearby. The award wining gastropub, The Kilchrenan Inn is an easy 10 minute walk and the four-star Taychreggan Hotel is a 5 mins walk away and provides fine dining on your doorstep. The four-star Ardenasaig Hotel is also not far away. The village of Taynuilt is a ten minute drive and has a grocer, butcher and post office for essentials, golf course and the rail/bus link to Glasgow, as well as the renowned Taynuilt Hotel and Whisky shop. The bustling, cosmopolitan town of Oban, the gateway to the Isles, is 35 mins away, for shops, restaurants and the cinema, as well as Caledonian MacBrayne services to Mull, Iona and the Inner Hebrides.
