Achleanan Farmhouse is the largest of the holiday cottages on the Estate. Used until 2002 for sheep shearing, this former farmhouse was restored in 2003 and sits alone 500 feet above the Sound of Mull with magnificent sea views to Mull and the Atlantic Ocean. Achleanan is ideal for those that prefer privacy as it is positioned on its own at the end of a track well beyond the current farm buildings.
Achleanan has great facilities and offers the perfect place for a family holiday. The spacious accommodation includes a white panelled sitting room with a wood burning stove (logs are provided) flat screen TV with DVD, hi-fi system and comfortable sofas to relax into after long days out exploring the 7,000 acre estate! There is a lovely garden room with large dining table which takes full advantage of the panoramic views and is an ideal spot to sit and watch for eagles that can often be seen in the area. There is a separate modern kitchen fully equipped with electric cooker, fridge freezer, dishwasher and microwave. Water is from a private, estate-maintained, supply and is regularly quality tested by the Highland Council. For floorplans of the property see the gallery images at the bottom of this page.
Also on the ground floor is a twin bedroom, a fully tiled shower room and toilet, a large hall/boot room and a separate utility/drying room with washing machine and tumble dryer.
Upstairs are another two bedrooms – one twin and one double with a king size bed – and a family bathroom with bath and shower above.
A travel cot for one infant or toddler up to two years old is available on request.
All linen, towels and electricity (plus logs for the stove) are included in the price. Additionally there is oil-fired central heating and double glazing throughout, making Achleanan Farmhouse suitable for holidays all year round.
The farmhouse has free Wifi (unlimited data) and mobile phone reception (in the garden room) for most networks (4G on some networks). Guests also have access to a games room (situated in an outbuilding to the side of Achleanan Farmhouse) that is equipped with a table tennis table, dartboard and a selection of exercise equipment – ideal for times when the weather is misbehaving. Small BBQ available.
Dogs are welcome at a small additional weekly charge.
There is an enclosed, pretty garden with picnic benches surrounding the property and parking just outside (immediately adjacent to the house). There is also an outside tap for washing muddy boots and dogs. Smoking is not permitted within the house.
