The Folly - Sleeps 2


FOLLY (‘foli )
…. “A building designed to satisfy a fancy or conceit, usually of an eccentric kind”.

We hope you will agree that this house is aptly named, whilst at the same time providing superb self-catering accommodation for two people.

The house is designed and sited to bombard the senses – from the waterfalls and tumbling burn at the back, the mixed woodland and wild flowers up the hill, to the ever changing vista over Loch Sunart and the Morvern hills.

The Folly sits amidst 80 acres of diverse countryside, with many rugged pathways and an extensive shoreline, providing excellent opportunities for keen nature observers.

The covered main entrance takes visitors into a very light, spacious and airy hand-made kitchen. Well equipped by any standard, the kitchen has a fan oven, gas hob, dishwasher, bread maker, fridge, upright freezer and many other small appliances.

To the rear the utility room has a washing machine, a tumble dryer and the all-important drying rack. Adjoining the kitchen is the open plan dining area, with superb views over the gardens and loch, and a pretty active bird table!

Also to the rear is the sizable bathroom with large bath and powerful shower over it. The tiled and heated floor makes this room a delight to use.

Proceeding into the circular part of the Folly you are faced with a choice – up or down!

Down involves a short curved flight of steps into the large restful sitting room again with a tiled and heated floor, with access to not one, but two terraces, complete with tables and chairs, capturing the day sun to the front and later on from the “Quarter-deck”, cantilevered over the stream at the back. An ideal place to sit with a glass of something and listen to the water.

Retracing your steps to the dining floor level leads to the bedroom stairs, passing the second loo on the way and thence to the light, airy, circular bedroom, again with stunning views and a small balcony.

Your comfort is assured in the high quality super–king size bed, which with prior notice can be converted into two full size single beds if this would suit you better.

Both sitting room and bedroom have digital freeview television and DVD players, and the sitting room has an additional CD player, radio and Ipod docking station. Due to the lack of mobile phone signal, a pay phone is provided and WiFi is installed should you need it.

For leisure activities we have provided a gas barbeque, tools and a small set of golf clubs for our challenging six hole putting coarse ( not a spelling mistake !) You are also welcome to use the table tennis/snooker room and mini gym just a short stroll away at Greenwood.
