Prairie Cottage is a beautifully presented holiday cottage on the Isle of Mull’s east coast, two miles north of the village of Salen. The cottage is detached and sits within an enclosed garden with views toward Glen Aros and the surrounding woodland.
This is an excellent choice for guests who appreciate a well-equipped and impeccably kept cottage, suitable for year-round stays. Contemporary styling and home comforts make it a welcoming house and the outdoor space and peaceful surrounds add to the ambience.
Guests can park on the drive and enter the cottage via the porch, which has a utility area with plenty of storage space, a sink and washing machine. On the ground floor there is an open plan living and kitchen area. This is a relaxing space with a multi fuel stove, and a selection of books and games too. There is plenty of comfortable seating and lots of natural light filling this welcoming space.
The kitchen is modern and very well equipped and has a breakfast bar with comfortable stools. There is a separate dining table too. Also on the ground floor is the twin bedroom, which has lots of storage space for belongings and views over the garden. A bathroom on the ground floor has a walk in shower unit, w.c. and basin.
Upstairs is the spacious master double bedroom with en-suite bathroom. The area at the top of the stairs has seating and a television with DVD player. There is a beautiful view of the surrounding countryside and lots of space for personal belongings to be stored. The en-suite bathroom contains a bath with shower over, basin and w.c.
The garden around the house is enclosed with lawned areas and picnic bench, so you can sit and take in the surrounds and enjoy a meal outdoors. There are a handful of neighbouring properties, but the cottage still retains some privacy. From the cottage you can enjoy some lovely walks including the loop around Aros estuary and castle which has great sea views and shingle beaches to explore. You can walk the shoreline looking for treasures and take a pair of binoculars so that you don't miss out on any bird life. Otters reside here too, so keep your eyes peeled at all times!
Prairie Cottage is the perfect size for a small family group or a getaway for two and has a very good location for easily exploring many parts of Mull. Tobermory, Mull’s main town, is just fifteen minutes drive to the north. The National Scenic Area at Loch na Keal is only 15 minutes away too, and the stunning Calgary beach is a thirty five minute drive from the house. Salen is the closest village which has a well stocked shop, café, restaurant, filling station and hotel bar.
