Barr na Criche House is set a short distance away but out of sight from Barr na Criche Self-catering Cottage, and sits within its own woodland with a panoramic view out across the West Loch to Kintyre.
The bright and spacious room sleeps two, and has glass doors that open out onto a small patio, from where you can stand and watch the world go by. There is a large pond nearby where you can use the bbq, sit and watch the sun go down or just enjoy reading a book with the wildlife.
The room can be either double or twin and is en-suite with walk-in shower. You have your own tea/coffee making facilities, satellite TV/radio, a small fridge and arm chairs in which to relax. We can supply crockery and cutlery - please just ask!
The price is £80 for the room per night. Breakfast is not available but you are welcome to bring food with you, however we do not allow cooking or re-heating up of food in the room, other than making tea and coffee. Our two bedroom self-catering cottage is a two minute walk from the room should you wish more space and want to stay longer. www.barrnacriche.com
Please come and stay; there is plenty to see and do in the area, or you could just sit and relax by the pond. The excellent Kilberry Inn is five miles away and the pretty fishing village of Tarbert, where the nearest shops and other restaurants are located, is nine miles away. The ferry to the Island of Islay sails past Barr na Criche, or take a day trip to the Island of Gigha and visit the beautiful gardens. The Isle of Arran is known as Scotland in miniature and is well worth a visit. Historical or archaeological sites, beachcombing, shops, castles, distilleries, woodland walks and wildlife - there is something for everyone.
A warm welcome awaits from Amanda, Peter and family, please telephone or e-mail with your enquiries.
