Character period holiday home rentals

Many of our self-catering holiday cottages and castle are restored period estate houses, dating back as far as the 1800’s. Most are located alongside the coastal road and have fabulous sea views to the front. A couple of apartments are nestled in amongst the tropical gardens and have a peaceful woodland setting.

Modern eco friendly holiday cottages to let in Argyll

In 2009, we rebuilt an old farmyard on the hill behind the main house and this offers ten modern mews cottages within a courtyard setting, with the most stunning Argyll coastal views and opportunities of awe-inspiring sunsets you are likely to experience!

What’s included

All our properties are comfortably furnished and have a small digital TV/DVD, washing machine/dryer, oven, hob, microwave and fridge with ice-box. The main house & Villa also have freezers, dishwashers and aga’s. The period properties are heated by electric storage heaters and open fires and the new cottages have modern under-floor heating. Electricity and a small supply of logs/coal is included, as is bed linen. Towels, BBQ’s, etc can be added as extras (some larger properties include these).

GARDEN HOUSE (2 apartments available)

The oldest property on the estate, the garden house is the only surviving wing of the original Killean House, most of which was destroyed by fire in the late 1800’s. There are now two bright, spacious holiday apartments which have both been recently refurbished.
