Property code: CA288

For get-togethers and special occasions, this wonderful property, sleeping 24 guests, boasts spacious accommodation close to the rugged coast and scenic countryside.

 

For a group looking to explore the Cowal Peninsula and beautiful Argyll countryside, this pretty Victorian house is a great base located in the quaint village of Kirn. Sleeping up to 24 guests across ten bedrooms, this four-storey property comes with three living areas to spread out and relax in.

Keen golfers will love that the local course is just to the back of the property, and as it is set back from the road and has a walled garden surrounding it, the house is a peaceful place to return to after a long day out.

High ceilings, wood-panelled walls, and soft furnishings in deep rich colours give the inside of the property that timeless, classic feel of a traditional country house. Take turns to cook up a storm in the well-equipped kitchen, complete with a separate pantry to store all your supplies and serve in the dining room. After a meal together, choose between the drawing room and large sitting room for after-dinner conversation and games. Both rooms have a gas coal fire and TV, so you can get comfortable and unwind. There is also a cosy snug with its own multi-fuel stove and TV, perfect for children and teenagers to have their own space of an evening. Climb the stairs to the bedrooms, which are spread over three floors, each of which have their own unique patterns and colour schemes. All but one is en-suite, so you can avoid queues for the bathroom and enjoy a hot shower before getting a good night’s sleep. Outside there is a garden to the front and back of the house, but for privacy head into the back garden. Carry brunch out to the long lawn and terrace and bask in the morning sunshine with a cup of tea.

You can head to the ferry terminal here (0.5 miles) where you can cross over (in about 30 minutes) to McInroy's Point. From here, you're in easy reach of Clyde Muirsheil Regional Park, a wonderful landscape of dog and family-friendly board walks and rugged terrain in the Renfrewshire hills.

More locally, go golfing at Cowal Golf Club next door, or try fishing, horse riding or quad biking. Discover the sandy beaches and rugged shores nearby and across the water. Visit the Castle House Museum (2 miles), Queens Hall which hosts events (2 miles), or Benmore Botanic Garden (7 miles), known for its collections of rhododendrons and conifers, plant collections from far-flung destinations in the Orient, the Himalayas, and Americas. Red squirrels and sparrow hawks also frequent this area and you could even charter a private yacht (4 miles) and set sail on these sparkling shores.

Fantastic stay at Croots House, everything we needed was available. Loads of kids toys, kitchen was well equipped + more. Plenty of parking lovely gardens. All 20 of us had a great time, our age ranges was 6 months to 94 years and it is suitable for all. We would definitely recommend a group gathering at this property.

We had a lovely stay at the cottage. Susie is a fantastic host and went the extra mile in making us feel welcome with good communication and preparing the cottage for almost every eventuality. The cottage is huge, with plenty of space both indoors and the garden. We particularly enjoyed making the most the garden, the kids were out all day. It's anRead more old cottage with plenty of character. We would definitely recommend the cottage, there's lots to do and see if you are prepared to drive Hide
