Auchenbeag, meaning “small field” in Gaelic, is a beautiful house, set in almost an acre of woodland, in the small fishing village of Tayvallich, on the West Coast of Scotland, in Argyll.
- HOUSE IS BOOKED SATURDAY TO SATURDAY IN PEAK PERIODS -
Built in 2007, Auchenbeag is designed to take full advantage of it’s elevated position, to provide stunning and unrivalled, sea views across Loch Sween.
The location in Tayvallich also means that you can walk from the house to all amenities.
Auchenbeag is the perfect destination for every type of break;
a family adventure; cycling, fishing, kayaking, walking and exploring, swimming in the Atlantic Ocean at Carsaig Bay; taking the Passenger Ferry, over to the stunning Isle of Jura; a venue for a special celebration; Christmas, New Year, family anniversaries and celebrations, - we even had a surprise marriage proposal here in 2015! - or maybe you’re ready for a very peaceful adult holiday; enjoying the seafood at the award winning Tayvallich Inn, walking to the Crinan Hotel for lunch or simply relaxing………..you can do as much, or as little, as you wish in this idyllic place.
Auchenbeag is a “home from home” with underfloor heating throughout, 4 bedrooms, an open plan dining kitchen and a sitting room, both of which enjoy beautiful, uninterrupted views across Loch Sween.
The dining area has a wonderfully cosy wood burning stove for the cooler months and a Juliet balcony overlooks the garden where you can comfortably enjoy your morning cuppa overlooking the bay or a glass of wine in the evening as the sun sets.
There is a Bose speaker system which allows you to play music directly from your phone or tablet using Bluetooth or connect directly to the Wi-Fi network.
The sitting room has a flat screen television with Freeview channels, DVD player and a selection of DVDs, games, jigsaws and books.
There is Wi-Fi Internet Access throughout the house.
Outside, the garden extends to over an acre and is divided into a landscaped area on the headland, and woodland with bluebell paths on the slopes. We also have several places for you to sit in the garden and enjoy the views, read your book or just to sit quietly watching the world go by, you may even spot some of the beautiful deer who often visit us regularly!
There is a large terrace area with wooden table and chairs for “al fresco” dining, as well as a traditional barbecue. There is also a small patio area on the ground floor, outside the double bedroom window.
Ample parking space for several cars with a carport providing sheltered cover for storing bikes, wetsuits, boots etc.
Central heating, electricity, towels and bedding are included in your Auchenbeag rental.
