Lagarie Garden Cottage is a charming detached cottage set in the conservation village of Rhu near Helensburgh (2m, shops, golf course, swimming pool) on the north shore of the Firth of Clyde.
Inside, the large sitting room has comfortable seating round the wood-burning stove and a conservatory/snug. There is a modern kitchen with separate dining room, a double bedroom, cosy play room with twin bedroom off it and a family bathroom, while upstairs are two further double bedrooms. Outside, tucked away behind the cottage, is an enclosed grassed garden (furniture).
A short stroll leads to Rhu with its marina, shop, pub and hotel restaurant. Helensburgh has many excellent restaurants and cafés and Upper Helensburgh is home to Charles Rennie Mackintosh’s famous Hill House which is open to the public. There are water sports on Loch Lomond (7m) and it is also an ideal area for walking, cycling, riding and wildlife watching. Glasgow (26m) is only half an hour’s train ride away.
