If you’re looking for somewhere to put your feet up in front of the fire, to read, to chat, to write your postcards or daily diary, to sip at a nightcap or simply to relax and doze – look no further. Our splendid Guest Lounge is just the place for you.
Full of character it has three very comfy 2 seater sofas as well as two indivudal chairs for you to settle into with room aplenty for everyone.
The views – morning and evening - are to die for and, after a day out and about, what awaits you but soft lights, the smell of the woodsmoke, a good book, good company and a glass or two? We’d suggest you could want for nothing more.
Please note that guests confined to a wheel chair will require assistance – which we’re happy to give – with 4 small steps down into the lounge.
The Dining Room
When we bought the house, we’re pleased to say that it came complete with a magnificent antique dining suite and a beautifully carved dresser.
Equally impressive, according to guests who see it for the first time, is the solid oak table, which easily seats up to 10, together with our Edwardian dining chairs.
Light and airy, cosy and informal, the dining room is the ideal place to join your fellow guests for breakfast or for dinner, if you’re eating in.
Around the house, you’ll find a good selection of art. We have acquired a complete set of five Artists Proofs by the renowned Scottish painter – JoLoMo –all signed by the man himself. Numerous other pieces are dotted around the walls of the Bedrooms and Guest areas. Almost all are very personal to us and almost all have a wee tale to tell – some of the works really do engender a lot of comment and discussion.
We also have a good collection of artefacts & souvenirs from our holidays as well as some nice ornamental pieces for you to enjoy too. Again, there’s usually a story behind the item, whether it’s the 3 days it took me to buy my piece of Balinese ebony or the time it took the Vietnamese artists to make the egg-shell piece.
Equipment drying & storage
In addition to all the above, we have a drying area so that you can start each day without damp clothes and there’s ample secure storage for skis, bikes and other equipment.
There’s plenty of parking too, floodlit for your convenience and security until 11.00pm each evening and, when needed, from 7.00am for the early birds.
If you’re going out for the day and would like a packed lunch, we’re happy to oblige, just let us know what you’d like the night before.
If you need something pressing, an iron and ironing board are available and to make sure you’re looking really smart for that evening out, a shoeshine kit is in the drawer under the TV in your room.
Keeping in touch
For guests who need to keep in touch, we have free WiFi Internet Access for your laptop and the mobile phone signals are good and strong. We are happy for people to use their mobile devices (phones, laptops and tablets), however please respect other guests whilst using these in the public areas.
