Harbour Cottage is a distinctive 3-bedroom detached cottage providing a feeling of comfort and offering plenty of space to take off your walking boots and take a deserved rest in front of the fire. Our guests fall in the love with the cottage and its simple decor and unspoilt location. In place of luxury, here is where you reconnect with the world.
Accommodation consists of a lounge, a fully-equipped kitchen with cooker, refrigerator, washing machine and microwave. As the island itself is what people come for, there is no television in the cottage. Upstairs there is a cosy sun-lounge with stunning views across land and sea, one double bedroom, one twin bedroom and one bedroom with a double and a single bed. The bedrooms have sloping ceilings. The bathroom is located downstairs, and has a shower (no bath).
For heating there is a coal fire as well as storage and panel heating throughout the cottage. All linen and towels are provided free of charge. Coal is not provided.
PLEASE NOTE: Harbour Cottage in not fenced in and there may be cattle around the house at times. Access is by a fairly steep slope (about 100 yards with an incline of roughly 1 in 6) which may not be suitable for all.
