Pet Friendly Holiday Cottage
Isle of Mull
This Idyllic location is shrouded in woodland, and this comfortable Pet Friendly Holiday Cottage emerges from the countryside of Salen, on the Isle of Mull, instantly drawing your attention to the fantastic scenery, and offers the perfect base for a family who love to explore the wildlife and wilderness of Scotland.
Built in a fascinating V shape that complements the landscape, the pink exterior of Little Glenforsa stands out from the surrounding woodland with a generous garden and off-road parking for guests. Entering this wonderful property, you will be simply blown away by the beautiful space waiting for you to settle in and unpack, sporting an airy feel due to the plentiful windows drawing in the soft natural light of this unspoilt island, painted and outfitted in white furniture to give a feel of opulence throughout the open-plan living area, with the addition of local artwork and rugs to add a quirky pop of colour; for example the tasteful blue bottles adding a splash of the sea to this coastal property.
A wooden floor runs throughout the living area, where a sitting area offers a Highland cottage feel with an electric flame look stove, and a TV ready so that you will never miss your favourite shows, and when you get ready to start your day, make a hearty breakfast from local produce in the fully-fitted kitchen, serving it on the wooden dining table with a view of a stunning garden space. Freshen up in the shower or have a relaxing soak in the bath to shake the sand from your skin, before sinking into the cosy and spacious bedrooms, noting that both are fitted with storage and homely décor, including a king-size with the most wonderful corner window and scattering of photographs and paintings and a twin with a soft blue theme throughout, making this the perfect property for a family getaway.
Outside, a delightful sitting area waits for an evening with a hot chocolate as you and the family recline after a long day of exploring, or why not picnic on the expansive grass area? There is also the option of relaxing in the summer house which overlooks a calming waterscape, bringing the perfect feel of a tranquil countryside escape.
Within the local area, there is no shortage of activities to fill your days, including a variety of walks, for example a trail beginning at Ben More, leading to Mull’s only Munro, which offers breath-taking views from the summit, cycle tracks and local sandy beaches which are great for watersports and walks with the family, including Calgary Bay.
An easy journey from the property you will find the beautiful and well-known town of Tobermory, where you can enjoy a stroll along the colourful harbour before heading into one of the local pubs, restaurants, or cafes that stock local seafood fresh from the surrounding ocean. Head over to the chocolate factory and whisky distillery, where tours and tasters are on offer. For lovers of history, there is a huge number of historical sites, including Pennygown Chapel, Salens Ships and Tobermory lighthouse as well as a wide variety of museums including MacQuarie’s Mausoleum, Ross and Mull Historical Centre and The Old Byre Heritage Centre, where you can indulge in the rich culture and heritage of the island.
With such a beautiful landscape, rich history and wonderful local produce, you will make your holiday one to remember with a stay at Little Glenforsa.The island can be reached by ferry from Oban to Craignure, Lochaline to Fishnish or Kilchoan to Tobermory.
