Strathy Bay Cottage will not disappoint any guest that arrives at this beautiful, detached croft cottage. It has had a loving and sympathetic full renovation, with walls stripped back to expose stone. From the approach through the gate, you cannot help but see the beautiful sandy beach just a few hundred yards beyond the cottage. This whitewashed cottage sits in a 5-acre plot, which is enclosed for adventurous children and four legged friends. There is a small storm porch for storing shoes and coats, and the kitchen is modern and well-equipped with a small dining area. The living room is cosy with a wood burner and comfortable furniture, and there is a shower room, a single bedroom and a stunning super kingsize master bedroom.
The owner provides oak whisky barrel firewood for the wood burner. Outside you have miles of beautiful walks from the doorstop and the local pub, which is 500 yards away, offers home cooked food. This really is a peaceful and tranquil sanctuary where you can escape all the hustle and bustle of everyday life, whilst laying in bed and hearing the waves crashing on the shore.
The immediate surroundings are a haven for wildlife. Dolphins, whales, porpoises, seals and otters all frequent the shoreline. There are numerous seabirds and wonderful rare wild flowers in the grassy slopes, which have been cropped close by the local sheep. Nature lovers will be spoilt for choice as there is also a colony of puffins at nearby Melvich.
The nearby village of Melvich provides further facilities including a shop and small restaurant.
