The Cabin is a nature-lover's paradise, a peaceful, romantic retreat full of character and charm. It is a 1930s wood-panelled cabin set in an orchard, part of the beautiful mature garden of our home. It consists of a bedroom, bathroom and old-fashioned kitchen with wood stove. We are situated at the heart of Kilmartin Glen, a 5-minute walk from ancient standing stones and chambered cairns and a short cycle from Moine Mhor nature reserve, Crinan Ferry beach and the award-winning Kilmartin Museum.


The Cabin is a 1930's wooden garden house. The rooms are wood panelled and the curved ceiling is reminiscent of an old railway carriage. With windows on three sides it is very light. When the weather is fair, sunshine pours into the bedroom from morning to evening. We have kept the original features and added vintage and retro furnishings. There are two comfortable single beds with electric blankets (we can put these together on request), a bathroom with bath and toilet and a kitchen with kettle, toaster, small fridge and old Belling cooker (electric). The Belling is fairly limited but will cook eggs or pasta, heat milk or grill bacon with success. You may wish to bring your own breakfast or if you prefer, we can provide a DIY breakfast, including freshly laid eggs. A Scandinavian wood stove heats the cabin (wood provided) but there are also electric radiators and blankets to keep you snug. The Cabin is a peaceful haven where you can read a book, play games or listen to the radio (or the birdsong!).

Serveis i zones comuns

The Cabin is best suited to couples or solo adventurers. For larger groups, there is potential for camping in the orchard next to the Cabin, but this would have to be arranged prior to your visit. There are steps up to the Cabin and it is necessary to walk through our garden to reach it. There is a parking space at the end of the drive. The Cabin is close to our traditional stone-built house, but is in a quiet spot so privacy is not a problem. Guests are free to make use of a quiet patio area if the weather is conducive to eating outside, to sit in the orchard with a cup of tea or enjoy looking out over the countryside at the back of the cabin. The garden is really magical in May when the bluebells and fritillaries are out.

Interacció amb els hostes

We know how important it is for guests to have their own space. You have total privacy in the Cabin and can rest assured that you'll be left in peace to enjoy the areas around the cabin. We are on hand if needed and are happy to share our knowledge of the area. We have lived here for 20 years and do a lot of walking, cycling, kayaking and wildlife watching. We are also involved in the local cultural life and community, so can suggest plenty to do if guests are looking for inspiration. The Artmap weekend is a great opportunity to tour the area and visit artists' studios from 25-28th August 2017. One of the studios is opposite our house! There are wonderful concerts at Crear: a Space to Create near Kilberry, which people travel hundreds of miles to experience. You can even volunteer at an archeological dig at Carnasserie Castle 22 May-29 June.

Altres aspectes destacables

The Cabin might not be everyone's cup of tea. It has no wifi (though it can be arranged if necessary) or television. The mobile signal is weak. The steps up to the Cabin are slightly tricky and the surroundings are dark at night so it's best to bring a torch. A lantern is provided in the Cabin.

Rae, myself and foxy absolutely loved the cabin!! It was so cosy and we could see the love Chris and Helen put in to making it homely and welcoming for guests. They went out of their way to open up dates for us in November and even picked us up in town to take us up to their village. Nothing to fault at all! Brilliant find! Xxx

I toured all over Scotland on my trip and stayed at a number of great places. But if I had to do it all again I would stay at the cabin the whole vacation. Charming, cozy, warm, inviting, wonderful. I loved the wood stove and appreciated so much being invited to share a wonderful meal. They are super hosts. So glad I found you!

Surrounded by stunning nature and views, sitting next to chimney reading a book... Just the memory brings a smile. Cabin is equipped with everything you need, very comfortable bed, kitchen and bathroom. Helen and Chris gave very good tips on how to spend time in Scotland. From one of these tips we got to watch the amazing stone skimming world championship which was unreal. Many thanks and hope to see you there again :) truly recommended!

Chris and Helen are fantastic hosts and made sure that we had everything that we needed. The cabin is cute and cosy and was surprisingly warm! Can't recommend this place (and the hosts) highly enough!

Couldn't recommend Helen and Chris's Cabin more highly! Perfect secluded cabin in the grounds of their fantastic garden. Couldn't help but instantly relax in front of the log burner. Really loved our stay here and will definitely be back!

Very friendly couple, run a very nice and quiet b&b in an old cabin at their property. Lots of lovely details in the cabin, nice walks in the area, good advice about where to go. We simply loved it.
