The Saw Mill

Self Catering

Glendaruel, Argyll, PA22 3AB

    2 bedroom ● Sleep 4 ● Dog Welcome ● Short breaks all year ● Any day arrival ● Tasteful conversion in deepest Glendaruel ● Garden location - peaceful and relaxing location

    The Watermill, built in 1905 to service the grain on what was the Glendaruel Estate, and subsequently used as a Sawmill, has been tastefully converted over the years while still retaining its character. Now used as a quality B&B and two self catering options: The Sawmill and The Joiner's Shop. The property sits within a beautiful secluded garden, complete with the original Mill Pond and streams that generated the power to service the mill. The Watermill offers a truly chill-out and deeply peaceful break. When you are ready to venture out to do things you will find its location on the Cowal Way long distance path, complete with a collection service at the end of your days walking, is just one of the things to do in the area. How about fishing for carp on the Watermills’ very own Mill Pond? Or a weekly fishing & nature trip on nearby Loch Fyne as guests of owner’s Michael and Sandra. The Watermill’s central location in the Cowal Peninsula makes it an ideal base for touring the area. Although you are in a truly country setting there are a number of pubs and restaurants in the area. A stay at the Watermill is an opportunity to relax and re-charge in character-full surroundings at truly great value–for-money prices.
