Craigard Cottage is an attractive red sandstone cottage which has been fully renovated to provide a contemporary and stylish self-catering holiday home. The cottage sits in a tranquil setting where the garden is surrounded by trees, and the mountain tops can be seen peeking over the top in the distance. The house has been beautifully decorated and furnished to a high standard and offers a bright and spacious living environment. There is a wood burner in the living room for cooler evenings, or on a warm summer’s day open up the patio doors from the kitchen/dining room and enjoy the spacious patio and rear enclosed lawned garden. This makes an ideal spot for a barbecue or letting the outside in while you dine. While relaxing you can hear the flowing sound of a stream running across the back of the garden where trees give you plenty of privacy and the opportunity to spot red squirrels. This is a tranquil spot to relax and enjoy your holiday. The utility room has a useful space for drying wet outdoor gear, or storing coats, boots and luggage.
Upstairs the master en-suite bedroom allows light to stream in through the two Velux windows making this a lovely and bright space. It overlooks the rear garden and enjoys views towards the mountain tops and sea. The twin room boasts views towards and sea from one window and across countryside from the other. Otters have even been spotted playing in the sea from the bathroom window. The landing area has been transformed into a small play area for children with bean bags and a selection of toys and games for the kids to enjoy.
In front of the cottage is Craegard House which is a large sandstone house that sleeps six and has been renovated to the same style as Craigard Cottage. They share the driveway but both properties have their own parking spaces. Located in the conservation village of Corrie where there is a children’s play area and hotel which serves food and drink to non-residents and regular live music, this is a great location for holidaying on the isle of Arran. It is only 6 miles from the main village of Brodick. For the adventurous the start of the Corrie route to the summit of Goatfell and other walking trails are nearby.
Craigard Cottage can be booked together with Craegard House (UKA426) to accommodate up to 10 guests.
