Branault is every inch the original croft house, and the sense of tradition here is strong. The two stone byres adjacent to the house are still in use, and in spring the newborn lambs in the surrounding fields provide plenty of entertainment.
The house has a large enclosed garden where children and pets can play safely, and it’s only a short walk to the beautiful white sands of Kilmory beach. The nearby hills are ideal for walking. After so much fresh air and exercise you can reward yourself by curling up in front of the log fire in the living room (which also features satellite TV). Upstairs there’s one twin and one double room, as well as a bathroom with shower and bath. The kitchen is fully equipped with a microwave, oven, washing machine and fridge-freezer.
Bringing a pair of binoculars is a must if you enjoy watching birds and wildlife, not only are you likely to see otters on your trips to the beach, but you can often see deer close by. Birds of prey are regularly observed hunting over the expanse of fields and hillside in front of the house.
All of our properties are supplied by private water sources, burns or springs. The water is tested by the local authority environmental health department each year and is perfectly safe to drink and to use for washing or cooking. Guests who may prefer the taste of processed water rather than the real thing are welcome to bring their own supplies of drinking water.
On occasion, this cottage is available to book for 3 days at a time. Please phone our estate office to check availability.
