A house by the beach on the West Coast with a stunning interior that has been thoughtfully designed with the holidaymaker in mind.
Is this Scotland’s most fantastic beach house for a wonderful west coast holiday? It certainly ranks up there, with one of the best locations we know and an interior that has been thoughtfully created to enjoy this lovely spot. The Estate Office is a listed building and has been undergoing a complete and painstaking renovation over the past 18 months and is finally ready to let, March 2017. So popular is this village that we had bookings made even before it was ready!
The house sits right on the shore line so open the back door and you are on the beach. Wonderful views across Applecross Bay, stunning views of Skye, Raasay and the Cuillins are all part of your stay in this holiday house. The sound of the sea even in calm weather surrounds you, and the sea birds are a constant – you may even spot a sea eagle if you are really lucky.
Inside, the house is fresh and bright and very tastefully and simply presented. Beautiful crisp white linens and fluffy towels are what you need after a day outside and with 6 bedrooms and four bathrooms, the house is well suited to larger parties. One bedroom with en suite is on the ground floor so useful if anyone has mobility issues. The fact the house is listed means that the windows are all double glazed and the house stays snug in all weathers. The downside of that listing is the smallish sitting room – cosy and warm but compact as internal walls could not be moved. Throughout the house, it is the views that will make you gasp – simply beautiful.
Outside there is ample parking and an enclosed garden at the front which is ideal for kids and dogs. A moment’s walk takes you to the famous Applecross Inn - renowned for its food and friendliness. Other great eateries like the café and the Walled Garden are also within walking distance so you have plenty of choice if you want a break from catering.
Applecross is a gem of a spot – be sure to travel via the spectacular Beallach na Ba – not for the faint hearted but the views are magnificent.
