Luxury coastal cottages - sleep 2 + 2
|Further details about this accommodation|
Constructed from Croft 103’s honey-coloured stone and benefiting from a south-facing aspect, this property strikes the ideal balance between spaciousness and intimacy. A substantial 7ft feather-topped bed made of lacquered steel and leather is the centre piece of Hill Cottage’s bedroom. The unique design is complimented throughout by a range of specially commissioned fixtures and fittings. Adjacent to the bedroom, the bathroom area has a walk-in double shower lined with polished Caithness stone. There are two baths – both designed to accommodate two people – one of which is outdoors on the secluded patio area overlooking the sea.
The lounge and dining area includes beautifully upholstered furniture and floor coverings in world-famous Anta tweed and a specially commissioned dining table. Effortlessly combining traditional and contemporary, Hill Cottage offers a wood-burning stove, a state-of-the-art home entertainment system and Wi-Fi. The kitchen provides everything you need to prepare locally sourced shellfish, high quality Scottish meats or to store ample wine for the duration of your stay. It is fully equipped with a modern cooker, dishwasher and fridge freezer. Sink and worktops are hand-finished in Caithness stone and a separate laundry room has washing, drying and storage facilities.
The Shore Cottage offers spectacular, constantly changing views of sea, sky and mountain. A sense of space, light and tranquility flood the apartment from morning to nightfall.
Here, outside is inside, with the open-plan kitchen and dining area leading out onto a generous patio. Fully equipped for all your culinary requirements, Shore Cottage has a modern cooker, microwave, dishwasher and fridge freezer, as well as an outdoor barbeque. Every aspect of Shore Cottage has been carefully planned and crafted, from the gorgeous drop curtains in the bedroom to bespoke towel rails and door handles throughout.
Like Hill Cottage, Shore Cottage features a fabulous 7ft feather-topped bed in leather and finished steel designed by artist blacksmith Sam Barlow. Honest natural fabrics and materials have been incorporated into the design and build of Shore Cottage. From ceramics by Lotte Glob to the meticulous stonework surrounding and protecting the property, everything is tactile and true to the touch.
Changeover days are Saturdays in peak season, but short breaks can accommodate other start days.
