Description

Old Post Office House is a charming traditional cottage amidst open countryside, yet is just 5 minutes drive to Inverness. Surrounded by its own delightful cottage gardens it offers peace and privacy whilst being easily accessible. All rooms are generously proportioned and many of the original features have been retained, including original cottage doors, high ceilings and deep silled windows. The large lounge/dining room is warm and welcoming with feature wood burning stove and pretty colour coordinated soft furnishings. There are two generously proportioned bedrooms on the first floor and a large family bathroom on the ground floor. The dual aspect kitchen looks out across the gardens. Lined with trees and mature flowering shrubs with lawns and borders, the gardens are totally secluded and a real delight. A small sun porch at the front of the cottage provides an ideal place to enjoy a coffee or glass of wine whilst admiring the views across open countryside. The cottage is situated down a quiet lane in the small hamlet of Artafallie.  This location is popular with walkers and cyclists attempting the ’John O Groats to Land’s End route whilst avoiding the busy trunk road. There are some lovely walks direct from the property.

About the local area

The surrounding area is noted for its wildlife. Visitors are very likely to see rare red kites wheeling overhead and the nearby headland at Chanonry Point is a well known local vantage point from which to spot the resident bottle nosed dolphins that frequent these waters. Boat trips to view the dolphins, seals and vast array of seabirds closer to hand are also available nearby. The pretty coastal towns and fishing villages dotted around the Black Isle are truly charming. The historic town of Cromarty is particularly attractive with its winding streets, fascinating court house museum and lovely walks along the water’s edge. It also boasts an excellent selection of restaurants, pubs, cafes and unusual small shops. There is a wealth of activities right on the doorstep, including golf, fishing, horse riding, hill walking, sailing, canoeing and cycling. Old Post Office House is perfectly situated for exploring the whole of the Highland region, yet only 5 minutes drive from Inverness, the Highland capital city. Situated on the banks of the Ness it is an attractive and vibrant city, with an excellent selection of shops, cafes, bars and restaurants, as well as a superb multi million pound theatre complex, multi screen cinema, ice rink and an amazing wild water aqua dome. Artafallie is one of the best situated villages for exploring the Highlands. Head West along the shores of Loch Ness to Fort Willaim, Mallaig and the road to the Isles. To the north is the wild and dramatic scenery of Sutherland and Caithness, and to the south Aviemore and the Cairngorm mountain range.
