Douglas Cottage has lots of character as it's one of the old steam railway cottages in Boat of Garten built for workers on the line and still retains many of its original features however it has been cleverly and beautifully restored to open out to 21st century proportions.
Douglas Cottage includes lots of fabulous contemporary touches - such as a statement wooden open staircase - which sits alongside its gorgeous period features including the original stone hearths. Opposite the comfy living room with its wood burning stove, there is a snug room which is perfect for reading and playing games. Towards the back of the cottage are two bedrooms - a double with a king size bed and a twin - and a large family shower room.
The kitchen is large and welcoming, with a breakfast bar as well as a round dining table seating 6. In the warmer months you can throw open the French windows to the garden and enjoy drinks and dinner alfresco. It’s fully fenced so safe and secure for your children and pets. Off the kitchen is the utility room with washing machine and drying space for all your outdoor clothes. Up the stairs you’ll find the third bedroom - another double with king size bed - and another large bathroom with bath and shower.
