The Coach House is a quaint detached property sitting next to neighbouring Claremont House, and situated 1 mile from Kilcreggan village on the Rosneath peninsula. Both Claremont and its coach house are listed buildings with Historic Scotland and date back to the 1800s. During Victorian times The Coach House was used to accommodate the coachman and his family upstairs, with the horse and trap housed on the ground floor. The Coach House has been converted to provide cosy and comfortable accommodation, on the ground floor there is a contemporary kitchen, toilet, dining area and living room with a sofa bed and vista windows. Upstairs is the shower room and main bedroom which has breathtaking views out to the sea, across the Firth of Clyde to the Isle of Bute, and the rugged twin peaks of the Isle of Arran. Outside there is a raised decking area, where guests can relax and enjoy the garden while taking in the views, sea air and birdsong.
It is only a short stroll to the seafront where you can relax and perhaps catch a glimpse of some wildlife or watch the passing ships while the more adventurous could launch a canoe or kayak to explore the coastline. There is an established walking trail and a small nature reserve on the Rosneath peninsula. The Clyde Sea Lochs Trail and the Three Lochs Way pass nearby. The area has a range of places to visit including the Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park, the town of Helensburgh, with the Hill House designed by Charles Rennie MacKintosh, and the town of Inveraray with is historic castle. You are close to all essential amenities, as it is only a gentle walk to the local village shop, post office, chemist and renowned butcher. The village has a popular cafe and pub and the historic Victorian pier supports a ferry service to Gourock with onward ferry to Dunoon or train service to Glasgow. For eating out, there’s hotels in Cove, just 2 miles away, and the village hotel also serves food, while Helensburgh with its varied range of restaurants is just a 25 minute drive or bus ride away. Seasonal sea angling is almost on the doorstep and the nearby Gareloch is very popular for mackerel fishing. The local roads are popular for cycling and The Coach House offers a lockable bike rack. A number of great golf courses are within a short drive.
