To understand what the property offers please look at our Gallery page which clearly highlights the features of the Cottage.
The property has a large double bedroom and a twin room. There is a refurbished bathroom upstairs, separate shower and toilet downstairs, sitting room featuring a log burner and the most amazing views over the bay and a separate lounge with large open fire. The large open plan eating kitchen has an electric induction hob, electric oven, and an oil fuelled Raeburn stove which also runs the central heating. Water is heated by an electric immersion heater and/or the Raeburn. The property has quite a steep staircase and is therefore unlikely to be suitable for those with significant mobility impairment.
Photos of the house, internally and externally are in our gallery to assist you in deciding whether Fishing Station Cottage is for you.
Outside there is ample parking for cars (and boats or trailers if required) a log shed with free logs to burn on the woodburner, BBQ, and plenty of open space for lazing about on those summer days. The log shed also provides secure storage for bikes, canoes and all that outdoor holiday kit you take with you.
The property has a washing machine, dishwasher, tumble dryer and outside washing line. We provide sheets, towels (bath and hand), dishtowels, logs, kindling and oil. Dogs are allowed in the property on payment of a weekly cleaning charge of £15, downstairs only, not on furniture and not in the sitting room please.
