Close to Loch Etive, in a quiet and secluded location, this spacious cottage makes the ideal holiday base for exploring Argyll. A spacious first floor property, set in the grounds of the fabulous 18th-century Bonawe House, it is close to the small West Highland village of Taynuilt, which is just 12 miles from Oban.
Honeysuckle Cottage is situated on the first floor of the courtyard building of Bonawe House, overlooking Loch Etive and is surrounded by mature beech trees and gardens. The house and grounds are situated on the edge of the village of Taynuilt, which is within a 15-minute walk and offers several shops, a café and golf course.
Honeysuckle Cottage has been carefully renovated by the owners to offer modern comforts in a traditional cottage setting. It is reached by an outside staircase and has beautiful views in three directions; into the courtyard, over the grounds on that side of the house and into the semi-formal gardens and over the hills beyond. There is a modern, bright and spacious living room with coal-effect fire and a separate large farmhouse-style kitchen/dining room. The two spacious, beautifully decorated bedrooms enjoy lovely views over the gardens. The sitting-out area outside has plenty of outdoor furniture, so you can enjoy dining al fresco or just sitting in the sunshine with a good book. The natural and wooded gardens are shared with the other holiday properties with seating areas in front of the property.

It has a hotel with a bar and restaurant, a general store, post office, butchers, hairdressers, café and a railway station all within a 5-minute walk. The busy little town of Oban, 12 miles, has an array of shops, bars and restaurants. You can catch a short ferry trip to one of the Inner Hebrides, including Mull, Staffa and Iona.
