There’s no end of entertainment at this pretty Victorian holiday home, with a private shoreline, boathouse, garden, hot tub, games cabin, and more. It’s a place for all ages to enjoy.

Encompassed by generous gardens and nestled against the banks of Loch Awe, this splendid Victorian villa sleeps up to ten guests across five bedrooms, making it perfect for a relaxing break with family or friends. With an array of social spaces, you can spend time together enjoying cocktails in front of the wood burner in the drawing room or relaxing in the family lounge. Younger guests can let off steam in the play fort or enjoy a kick about on the small football lawn. There’s also entertainment for all ages in the games cabin. Head to the shoreline for a picnic on the sand or launch your own boat from the private jetty for some fishing or even a spot of wild swimming.

Retaining many original features and elegantly decorated throughout, this luxurious property has a warm and inviting atmosphere from the moment you step through the front door. Unpack your provisions in the fabulous kitchen/diner where you can enjoy nibbles at the central island or dine in style at the long dining table as the logs crackle in the open fire. Curl up on one of the drawing room sofas and chat late into the evening in front of the warming wood burner. Sip your morning coffee in the pretty garden room and after a day of exploration, sink into the comfortable seats in the lounge and watch a film as the sun sets across the loch. Climb the original Victorian staircase to the first floor where you will find the five well-appointed bedrooms, all individually designed with indulgent soft furnishings and views across the gardens or loch – one even enjoys a Juliet balcony. Heading outside to the villa’s extensive grounds, enjoy evening drinks on the terrace as younger guests play on the lawn. Rejuvenate aching limbs with a soak in the indulgent hot tub. The games cabin offers hours of fun for all ages, with a full-size pool table, table football and jukebox. Light the BBQ for a relaxed evening meal. The sandy shoreline is only steps away for swimming, fishing and rowing.

Please note there is a refundable £350 security deposit for this property payable closer to the start of your holiday.

Stroll or cycle through the towering oaks at Glen Nant National Nature Reserve (6 miles) and picnic by the banks of the River Nant. Spend the day in Oban (19 miles), taking a tour of the whisky distillery and feasting on freshly caught seafood in one of the welcoming restaurants.
