This traditional gate lodge is detached and stands alone in ancient Caledonian Oak woods on the private estate road, looking across to the Sound of Mull. The Lodge was originally built in 1840 but by 2000 had become a roofless ruin. Now restored, it accommodates up to two people in comfort, with all modern conveniences.
A perfect romantic retreat for couples or hideaway for one, the Lodge is all on one level and as you enter through double storm doors to the left there is a lovely compact open plan living/kitchen/dining area. A wood burning stove (logs provided), flat screen TV (Freesat channels) with DVD and hi-fi system are provided in the cosy living area. The small fitted kitchen with dining area is well equipped and has an electric cooker, microwave, fridge freezer and ample cupboard space. Water is from a private estate-maintained supply and is regularly quality tested by the Highland Council.
To the other side of the entrance door is a comfortable double bedroom with en-suite shower room. There is electric heating and double glazing throughout the Lodge keeping it cosy all year round. All linen, towels and electricity (plus logs for the stove) are included in the price.
Wi-Fi is provided on a limited satellite package and there is good mobile phone signal in the area including 4G on some networks. Guests also have access to a games room (situated in an outbuilding to the side of Achleanan Farmhouse, 0.3 miles away) that is equipped with a table tennis table, dartboard and a selection of exercise equipment – ideal for times when the weather isn’t so good. Dogs are welcome at a small additional charge per week.
There is private parking just outside, a decked seating area just across the track with views across the Sound of Mull and a pretty summer house on the rising ground above The Lodge, with a washing machine,drying area, outside tap and a further seating area to relax in and enjoy the wonderful sea vista. Smoking is not allowed in the Lodge.
