Lochside Cottages are right next to Loch Broom on the fringe of our traditionally run Farm. The houses are traditional outside, but inside very modern and bright with underfloor heating throughout. Open plan living areas with open fires and unrivalled views of the nature of the loch. You may see otters, porpoises, herons and even the odd Highland Cow. Numbers 1 and 3 have a double and twin room and sleep 4, number 2 has a double and two twins and sleeps 6. The houses are popular with singles, families and even groups of people who want to holiday together, but have the privacy of their own space.
The estate has a number of good walks, forest, shoreline and hill and you can walk to the famous Leckmelm Gardens from the Lochside Cottages. Pets are welcome as are children and at the farm there are a few toy tractors to play on in the walled garden adjacent to Lochside Cottages. We can also give you contact details for reliable and trusted babysitters that we have used for our own children if you are coming with young family.
