Stunning Georgian manor house surrounded by pretty gardens and Scottish scenery. The perfect spot to get the extended family together for a celebration and break from modern life.

With a large private sandy beach, a loch for fishing and, extensive gardens and grounds to explore, this stunning eight-bedroom Georgian property is a wonderful destination for friends and families seeking a secluded base to enjoy the beautiful Argyll countryside. Gather together in the drawing room for cocktails or charades in front of the open fire and linger over a leisurely breakfast at the large kitchen table. Play boisterous games of beach cricket on the private beach or pick up your bucket and spades for a sandcastle building competition. The pretty fishing village of Tarbert (10.5 miles) has a picturesque harbour, independent stores and welcoming pubs and restaurants for a night off from self-catering. Enjoy stunning views from Robert the Bruce’s 14th century castle overlooking the village.

Reached via a long driveway, your traditional rural retreat blends original features with modern comforts and design. Steps lead to the front door where you will enter into the spacious hallway with elegant staircase leading to the upper floors. Relax together in the elegant drawing room with its comfortable seating, roaring log fire and grand piano and enjoy tasty meals in the formal dining room. Get competitive with a table tennis tournament in the games room to find your holiday’s champion. Heading downstairs to the lower-ground floor the spacious and well-equipped kitchen/diner is a sociable space for cooking and conversation and the adjacent cosy sitting room is great for playing games or watching television. There’s a convenient utility room and drying room on this level along with a shower room for freshening up when you come in from the garden and beach. Climb the sweeping staircase to the first floor where you will find four of the cottage’s bedrooms. The master bedroom is a generous room with garden views. Snuggle up in your super-king bed for a restful night’s sleep under the cosy duvet. A door leads to the Jack and Jill bathroom shared with the pretty single bedroom. There is a second comfortable single bedroom and a twin bedroom with en-suite bathroom with separate shower. The en-suite can also be accessed from the hallway. Continue to the second floor where four well-appointed twin bedrooms can be found along with the family bathroom. Situated in tranquil surroundings within a private estate on the Knapdale Peninsula, spend your days playing on the private sandy beach or exploring the extensive grounds and woodland walks. Cast your rod in the hillside loch in search of the elusive brown trout. Light the BBQ for a sociable evening dining under the stars and talking late into the night.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

The house is fabulous - better than we expected. However the heating system contained a few glitches which were not fully resolved despite efforts by the owner.

We booked this out for 13 adults who were going to a wedding in the local area. From start to finish all the staff related to Carse were so helpful and so nice! The house has everything you could possibly need for a short or long term stay, it was spotless. Tarbert, which was a 25 min drive away is the closest town and it's very easy to find from tRead morehere. Could not recommend this house more! Hide
