Stable Cottage is a lovely conversion of the former stable at Seafield Farm. A modest 1830 exterior hides a spacious interior with 21st Century facilities. We have a wonderful rural setting at the head of Loch Sween surrounded by woodland and fields. Great walking with wildlife in abundance and beautiful scenery. The perfect destination for anyone with a love of the great outdoors.
Seafield Farm has been in our family for over a hundred years and has been providing holidays for much of that time. We make our cottages as special as we can with lots of extras to make your holiday memorable. Stable Cottage is completely self contained. The cottage is self catering and fully equipped. We welcome visitors for stays of 4 days or more during the main season, 3 day breaks are available in low season. Our cottages are child free (but we do accept infants under 5), pet free and stress free! Peace and quiet guaranteed.
We have 50 acres of land for you to explore on foot or by bike. It is a great place for wildlife and Loch Sween is a paradise for canoes and kayaks. The grounds around the cottages are a shared space as is the barbecue hut.
Interaction with guests
We are around if you need us or need advice about the area but will leave you in peace if you don't. You have complete privacy in your cottage. There is a barbecue hut in the grounds which is a communal space for us and our visitors. We are happy to chat and you are welcome to visit my basketmaking workshop which is on site.
Other things to note
Check in time is any time after 3.30 pm and Departure time is no later than 10.30 am.
We have designed our holiday accommodation to be as we would wish a self catering cottage to be. There will always be home baked cake to welcome you - let us know if you are vegan or gluten free. Free wi-fi is available. Heating is by log fired boiler (we tend the boiler, you enjoy the warmth) or by electric panel heaters during summer months. We have photo voltaic panels to provide some of our electricity. Mobile phone signal is not good in the immediate Achnamara area - Vodaphone is the only option for any service at all here. The cottage has a payphone and wifi so you will be able to communicate with the outside world if you really want to.
The cottages and immediate vicinity are no smoking please.
We do our best to provide you with a clean and welcoming space and hope that you will do your best to treat the cottage and the contents with care. For the comfort of all our visitors, we do not accept pets and smoking is not permitted in the cottages or the barbecue hut. Scotland can be muddy so we ask visitors to remove outdoor shoes in carpeted areas (stairs and bedrooms). Full information is included in the House Manual which visitors are urged to read to get the best out of the accommodation.
We need to know when you expect to arrive and when you are here, your expected time of departure so that we can plan our other commitments around these times.
I've been running three holiday cottages for 22 years in this very beautiful part of Scotland so have welcomed hundreds of visitors over the years. I'm a basketmaker and beekeeper, have a veg and willow plot and a few chickens. This is the real rural idyll and we look forward to welcoming you to share it.
