It offers fabulous views down the Loch and to the hills and mountains beyond. It has been refurbished recently to a very high standard. Interior Barr Cottage has two spacious bedrooms, a double and twin, a family bathroom including a double ended bath with rain shower over, a large dining kitchen with newly fitted units including a built in oven, microwave, fridge freezer and a separate ceramic hob. There is a dishwasher and washing machine to help with those essential chores. The large open-plan kitchen/dining area is perfect for entertaining and has views over the cottage garden and hills beyond, with a window seat for bird and wildlife spotting. The cosy sitting room has a wood-burning stove for relaxing evenings in the glow of a real fire. There is a flat screen TV/DVD in the sitting room. The sitting room has views across the farm, down the Loch and of the patio and garden. Barr Cottage is fully centrally heated with hot water on demand. It has double-glazed sash windows and is well insulated, keeping it snug in the winter and cool in the summer. To the front of the cottage is a patio / barbeque area with a raised-bed kitchen herb garden for the cooks amongst you. The cottage garden is mostly lawn with access to a larger lawn area for badminton, croquet, ball sports or picnics. Barr Cottage also boasts a wonderful array of garden and woodland birds. We are occasionally visited by red squirrels and pine martins and there are buzzards, eagles, otters and deer in the forests and lochans around the farm. There is ample parking for cars and space for a boat/trailer; we also have secure storage available for your mountain bikes and / or kayaks leaving your car clutter-free for day trips. Explore Barr Cottage is a wonderful base from which to explore the boundless historical, archaeological, botanical and scenic attractions that are on offer in this beautiful region, to the many leisure pursuits including walking, hiking, cycling, fishing, kayaking and sailing. There is something for all. Loch Fyne is well known for diving and sea fishing and the changing shoreline, myriad small bays, islands and shoals offer interesting paddling for kayaks or canoes. The Loch is within easy reach along farm and forestry tracks and footpaths via part of the Brainport Heritage trail for walking or mountain biking. The shoreline is rocky along much of the coastal path but it opens out into a sheltered shingle bay at Brainport where you can spot seabirds, herons, seals and occasionally an otter at play. For those of you who require access to the water, there is a small car park with trailer launch access from the compacted pebble shore at the head of Minard village. This car park is also the start of a shore walk that heads towards Brainport Bay and meanders through the woodland to join the circular heritage trail.

I suffer from a severe allergy to dogs and therefore it can be a nightmare trying to find a holiday rental where the owners are true to their word concerning not allowing any pets into the property including their own. The owners were extremely helpful...More
