  • Building on The Waterhouse was started in early 2006 and completed in May 2007. The building is of exceptionally high quality and has been built by ourselves, from our own design and using the skills of local craftsmen. It is nearly all homecrafted, down to the doors and windows.
  • It is surrounded by stunning, undulating countryside, nestled beside a farm track with fields full of sheep and cows in summer months. It is only 3 miles from the coast and woodland and hill walks are minutes away, as are a number of lochs.
  • The Waterhouse has a DOUBLE BEDROOM with a chunky wooden bed and a glass door opening on to the deck. There is a second, small bedroom with built in, comfortable, wide BUNK BEDS for children or agile adults.
  • The bathroom between bedrooms has a solar heated shower (with mains back up), WC washbasin and heated towel rail.
  • As the gardens are very private, most people enjoy the hot-tub without costumes and we assure privacy for non-naturist guests.
  • Surprisingly, Scottish “midges” and other biting insects are not very common and rarely a problem by the ponds even in the evening and so far we have had no customer complaints about bites . Perhaps it has something to do with the bats and swallows commonly skimming the surface.
  • The Waterhouse is fully equipped with cutlery, crockery, glassware, pots and pans, cooker, fridge freezer, electric kettle, toaster, tea towels, smoke detector, and fire extinguisher.
  • Bed linen and towels are provided as well as a starter pack of local produce and cleaning materials.
“Very relaxing, perfect for lounging- and we even had some sunny weather. 
Beautiful surroundings, and congenial hosts- a very gratifying combination” 

"It's the most peaceful, relaxing and tranquil place we have ever stayed"

"The garden looked beautiful with snow and all the better for being snug in the hot tub looking at the stars"


  • The Boathouse is a small but fully equipped, light and airy luxury chalet added in 2011, sleeping 2 in a double bed. It has the appearance of an upside down wooden boat,hence the name, but with flat ends and is located on the other side of the car park, next to The Waterhouse.
  • The door opens onto an attractive smallish deck, raised up nearly a metre, and with a table and chairs. This gets a lot of sun facing south west and overlooks the back pond, gardens and paved seating area. The building was constructed as a one off by The Wigwam Holiday Company and craned into position. 
  • The inside has been customized with an en-suite shower room with toilet and basin. This is tiled beautifully with Travertine tiles, cobbled flooring and under floor heating.
  • For groups up to 6, The Boathouse adds an additional double bedroom space. It is completely self contained with running water, ceramic hob, combi microwave and fridge.

The Boathouse can only be booked as a joint booking with The Waterhouse.
