Bookend Cottage offers a truly unique place to stay on Mull. Credited with a Roses Design Award (for excellence in design), this property has a superb layout and a very high standard of finish, which combine to make a very comfortable and relaxing environment in which to enjoy your holiday.
Located in the old town of Tobermory, Bookend Cottage sits at the end of a picturesque row of cottages and features a large pair of glass doors in the living area, which give a superb view over Tobermory harbour.
A gate leads to the garden area from the pavement where there is a gravelled area leading up onto the south facing lawn, with a lovely view. Entering the cottage, the quality of design and creative use of space becomes apparent. There is a spacious cloakroom area with a corridor from which all sleeping accommodation and bathrooms lead off. At the end of the hall a staircase leads to an open plan living area.
The downstairs is largely finished in a ‘limed wood’ panelling, which give a tactile, warm and bright feel to the space and there is underfloor heating throughout this lower level. The first double room with bunk beds has a nice layout and is ideal for a family. The bunk beds are a standard adult size and are built to a high standard. There is ample inbuilt storage space for personal belongings.
The main bathroom is again finished to a high standard. It is spacious, bright and features quality fixtures and fittings. The master double is a lovely room, with the same calm, relaxing feel and is complimented by a superb ensuite bathroom with an excellent, large walk in shower cubicle, basin and w.c.
Heading upstairs to the open plan living kitchen area, guests will be impressed by the beautiful living area the owners have created with solid oak flooring throughout and a high ceiling with thoughtful lighting. The plentiful windows bringing the outdoors into this warm and comfortable space.
The kitchen is very well equipped and features excellent quality appliances, including a combination oven/microwave, electric induction hob, fridge and freezer. The dining area helps the space flow into the main living area where there is comfortable seating, a wood burning stove and beautiful views over the harbour. There is an office desk here too; a useful addition with wireless internet access provided. The floor to ceiling double glazed doors fold open to give access to the balcony and transform the living area into a room that feels very connected with the outdoors. A great spot for a glass of wine whilst the sun sets!
Being situated in the heart of Tobermory, Bookend Cottage gives guests easy access to much of the island capital's attractions such as the Arts Centre; award winning restaurants; boutique shops; golf course; distillery and marine harbour visitor's centre.
