COMING SOON! Achmore Cottage, Isle of Lewis
Sleep 4 | 2 Bedrooms | 2 Bathrooms | Multifuel Stove | Stunning Views | Central Location
Welcome to our newest holiday cottage ready for 2017. We’ve worked hard to thoroughly renovate this cottage to the same high standards as our other two properties. Located in the crofting township of Achmore in the centre of Lewis, the views from this extensively renovated and modernised cottage are stunning.
From the comfortable sitting room with its south facing aspect or either of the two bedrooms there are stunning views south across the myriad of sparkling fresh water lochs and extensive moorland towards the majestic Harris Hills.
The property is ideally situated for exploring the island by car, bicycle or on foot, as the recently established Hebridean Way passes through Achmore. The Hebridean Way begins on the Isle of Vatersay in the south of the archipelago and comes north to Achmore and eventually end at the Butt of Lewis, the most northerly point on the Isle of Lewis.
Sleeping up to 4 people, the cottage is arranged over a single level. There are two double bedrooms – one with an en-suite shower room and walk in wardrobe, and one with two twin beds which zip and link together to form a superking size bed. The separate family bathroom has a bath and a separate power shower. The cosy sitting room has a multifuel stove set on a slate hearth, and the kitchen/ dining room enjoys evening sunlight through 3 windows.
In keeping with its character, the cottage will be furnished in a modern country style, including painted and solid oak furniture. Each bed is dressed in crisp, white egyptian cotton linen, and top quality, deep mattresses for a blissful nights sleep. Modern technology hasn’t been overlooked with WiFi available throughout the cottage and a 43 inch tv available for quiet nights in. In the kitchen, a dishwasher and washer/dryer are available along with a fridge/freezer.
Outside, the garden has a secluded patio area that catches the sun during the day and is equipped with a table and chairs ideal for outdoor picnics. As with our other properties, we don’t accept pets in Achmore Cottage.
Achmore Cottage is available to book now for holidays starting in July 2017 and possibly earlier. Please don’t hesitate to ask for information on our progress and we’ll do our best to add updates and photos here.
