Relaxing to the max couldn't be easier at Ferry House, Scotland. A luxurious, modern holiday cottage with its own private beach on the shores of Loch Creran...

Feeling insular this month? You’re not alone. January is the month in which many of us long to escape and hibernate. Ferry House is a neat little find – and a one worth considering if you’re battling a case of New Year blues.

ggggIt’s your own private place to stay in the Scottish Highlands on the shores of Loch Creran, between Oban & Fort William, across from Mull. Staying here means you’ll have your own 66 acres of fields and forest to explore – a natural adventure playground for keen strollers, hikers and budding foragers. Take in the jaw-dropping views across to mountains on the Isle of Mill as you go.

There’s the beach too – also all yours. Right on the sparkling shores of Loch Creran, just a few moments spent here feeds and uplifts groggy souls.

Inside, beyond the cottage’s rustic exterior, you’ll discover natural materials that blend seamlessly with contemporary furnishings. This is a super sumptuous space, filled with quiet nooks and crannies for curling up with a book and a glass of red. Sink deep into the sofas by the fire and be mesmerised by the ever-change views.

The property boasts two king size bedroom, both with rural views. Retire to the boudoir after a meal at the local pub, which lies less than two miles away. If you’re considering a night spent wrapped up indoors, there’s a nearby shop in Benderloch where you can stock up on all your essentials.
