From a touch of luxury to characterful heritage, experience one of our truly inspiring holiday properties.


In a glorious setting, this spacious retreat enjoys a games room and garden with barbecue - perfect for summer evenings.

Degnish Farmhouse sits proudly alone within a 1100-acre working hill farm at the western end of Loch Melfort and has spectacular panoramic sea and adjacent island views. Surrounded by abundant wildlife, including otters, seals and birdlife and with easy access to golf, horse riding, sea kayaking, fishing and sailing, this comfortable south-facing detached holiday property offers a perfect retreat in a glorious setting.
The house has been lovingly re-built to a very good standard, with underfloor heating, double glazing and an emphasis on the wonderful views.
Ideally based for exploring the west coast, there are plenty of ferry trips nearby to Mull, Arran, Gigha, Islay, Colonsay or Tiree. The bustling harbour town of Oban, known as the ‘Gateway to the Isles’, is a scenic drive north and is home to an array of shops and restaurants. Inveraray Castle, historic Kilmartin Glen, and the Crinan Canal make for wonderful days out. Ardmaddy Castle and Gardens are 3½ miles over the hill, and can be accessed on foot, by 4-wheel drive or via the road to Seil Island. Guests enjoy free access to the gardens and are also welcome to use the estate’s tennis court. Small motor boats can be hired at Ardmaddy. Free fishing can also be arranged on the estate’s well-stocked hill loch.
There are plenty of hill and forest trails for mountain biking and leisurely walks, or visit one of the magnificent local gardens. Whilst there is the farm and miles of coastline to explore, there is also an enclosed garden and covered outdoor BBQ area ensuring the safety of younger children whilst allowing the grown-ups to enjoy an al-fresco lunch. Shop and pub 5 miles.

Twin bedroom with en-suite shower room and toilet. First floor: Two double bedrooms each with 5ft bed; one with en-suite bathroom with over-bath shower and toilet.

    Beautiful house in a stunning location, the house is very well presented and spacious. We spent a lot of time at the beach which is only a 5 minute walk from the house, the water was crystal clear and the kids loved exploring and found plenty of sea life. The property is great for dogs, very secure and gated. We recommend a visit to the wishing tree, about a three mile walk up the mountain, with stunning views of seil island and plenty of wildlife. Kids enjoyed the games room however wear your jumpers it's cold. Overall a great holiday and we will be definitely returning in the future.

    Wonderful rural location the pictures showed the house exactly how it was presented. Very warm welcome of homemade shortbread. House was very clean and spacious for 10 people would stay there again if you want rural this is the one fantastic views. Only downside no wifi so children found a week too long! A definite revisit in summer.
