Ardsheal Lodge is a pretty little detached cottage that occupies a wonderful spot looking out over the waters of Loch Linnhe’s Kentallen Bay on the beautiful Ardsheal Estate, 10 miles from Appin in Argyll.
Set up perfectly just for two, this traditional cottage has been thoroughly refurbished and decorated in relaxing muted tones that give it a warm, inviting feeling as soon as you enter.
The charming sitting/dining room is the heart of the house with its loch view, original wooden beamed ceiling and wood-burning stove to toast your toes in front of. The little dining area is perfect for enjoying romantic meals and the neat, modern kitchen is partly open to the sitting room.
The accommodation is all laid out on one level with an attractive double bedroom and a spacious, contemporary shower room with walk-in shower that are kept cosy throughout by underfloor heating.
A private parking area lies just to the side of the cottage and on the other side the pretty elevated patio area has seating from which to admire the loch and the boats bobbing out in the bay.
There is fishing right on the loch shores and walks off into the estate which also has a jetty where kayaks and canoes can be launched (by arrangement). It is just a short stroll round the bay to the hotel restaurant/bar in Kentallen village that specialises in seafood and also serves excellent bar meals.
