Cottage
Tigh Ban Lek is an imaginatively conceived and individually designed purpose-built house in distinctive Swiss Chalet style, having been built from stone and substantial natural timbers. The design award winning house was built in the late 1990s and has been carefully incorporated into the hillside and oriented entirely to maximise on the island views and seascapes extending over 30 miles to the south and west. This is an extremely comfortable, spacious and sophisticated holiday home. Accommodation is laid out over two floors: an entrance vestibule leads to the reception hall and onto ground floor accommodation of two bedrooms. The ground floor also has an under stairs storage cupboard and WC/utility room. The master bedroom features an ensuite bathroom with double shower heads over the ...Tigh Ban Lek is an imaginatively conceived and individually designed purpose-built house in distinctive Swiss Chalet style, having been built from stone and substantial natural timbers.

Everything you could possibly need supplied to make the stay completely stress free. Even the 2 year old was completely catered for - stair gate, cutlery, games and sheep and squirrels to look at in the garden. We'd definitely visit again.
