Über dieses Inserat

Beautiful, cosy, oak-framed house designed by Roderick James Architects set in a secluded, wooded position with spectacular views of the Sound of Mull. Large open plan living area with wood-burning stove, loft-style master bedroom and bathroom.

Die Unterkunft

This beautiful family house was designed and owned by Roderick James, Architect, and his wife, Amanda Markham. It was the first of a series of oak framed 'evolution' houses which can be built with a central core, and extended as required. Guests who are thinking of building their own houses may be able to visit some of the other seven or eight houses designed by Roderick in the area.
The ground floor is essentially open plan with two bedrooms (one en-suite) opening off the living area, and a twin bedroom (probably better for children) accessed from either outside, the rear double bedroom, or the shower room.
A staircase rises from the living area to the new kingsize master bedroom and bathroom
Roderick and Amanda work from a small house (Tigh na Mara) within the same 9 acres, but Tigh Darach is the house in which our extended family also stay when they visit us in Scotland.
It faces due South looking down and across the Sound of Mull, with a breakfast veranda to the East and a cocktail veranda (!) to the West.
There are normally a couple of roe deer living in the grounds, and the house is regularly visited by Pine Marten and Swallows. Seals and dolphins are often to be seen in the Sound with the occasional otter, eagles and other birds of prey.
The house is well insulated, double glazed, and heated by a ground source heat pump with underfloor heating and solar photo-voltaic panels.
Please note that we can only get satellite broadband in this area and it can be rather intermittent. There is also a mobile phone booster, but again this is as good as we can get and it's not perfect! O2 is best here, with Vodaphone a close second. We have a special rate for one couple, using one bedroom only of £150 per night.

Zugang für Gäste

The house is only let in its entirety with 3 day minimum periods, and generally one week minimum stays over Christmas, New Year, Easter, the summer holidays and half term periods. There are seven acres of wooded grounds to explore plus easy access to the privately owned Drimnin Pier and shoreline.

Interaktion mit Gästen

Both the owners and housekeeper live nearby and are available to give help and advice.

Ein wunderschönes Haus in einer traumhaften Umgebung. Einfach gemütlich machen am Kamin mit einem Glas Wein und den herrlichen Ausblick genießen. Die Küche ist gut ausgestattet. Die Betten sind überaus bequem. Die Einrichtung ist detailverliebt und strahlt Wärme und Gemütlichkeit aus. Die Kommunikation mit Amanda war gut. Einziger Minuspunkt: das Haus war nicht gereinigt.

Amanda's house has a fantastic relaxed and airy feel to it and gives great space for relaxation and or a base for watching wildlife and looking at boat traffic going up and down the Sound of Mull. With a fantastic garden full of wildlife and great location for walks and bikes right from the door, it provides the perfect base for a holiday destination. We will be back for sure.

What a truly amazing place - really comfortable and the scenery is just remarkable. So quiet, peaceful and beautiful. Even on the days it rained, it was still beautiful. If you're looking for nightlife and shops - forget it. If you want peace, quiet, beauty and comfort, this is the place for you. A fantastic retreat.

Amanda's house is stunning. We loved the light, airy feel of the place and were also delighted to be able to make use of the woodburner on a couple of chillier evenings. We were a group of friends (3 couples) and it was perfect for us - spacious and comfortable. The garden is very pretty and sheltered with spectacular views from the house across the garden towards the loch. We recommend the White House Restaurant in Lochaline and there are great walks from the house and local area e.g. to the deserted village resulting from the Highland Clearance in the area. Amanda and Shirley were responsive and helpful throughout - promptly providing jump leads when we had a problem with one of the cars.

The If you want a stunning, secluded, amazingly designed space then this place is for you. I cannot rate it highly enough. We had planned so many excursions whilst we were there, but once we had arrived we just wanted to soak up as much time as we could in the house, looking at the amazing view, sitting on the worlds comfiest sofas, and enjoying the gorgeous log burner. Everywhere you look there are small details in the house which just add to its charm. We had incredible weather when we were there, so made full use of the many outdoor seating areas, but even without good weather this would still be an amazing place to spend a few days. We will definitely be back!!
