Situated in upper Tobermory, the Croft is a very spacious Mull holiday house in a great location with excellent views over Tobermory and the sea. This is a well-appointed property furnished to a very high standard, making a brilliant base for family holidays or group getaways. Socialise on the sun deck with sea views, cosy up in the living room or cook up a feast in the kitchen – there’s plenty of room for the whole family here.
There is parking outside for two cars and the entrance leads to the hall and stairway. The modern, spacious and bright kitchen is well-equipped and has a large window at one end. Double glass doors at the other end lead onto the veranda, letting lots of natural light pour in and showcasing the views outside. The dining table is part of the open plan area off the kitchen. On a sunny day, guests will enjoy opening the doors to the veranda to create a sense of semi outdoor dining.
The main living area is spacious with high quality, comfortable furnishings, a good selection of books and interesting reading material about the island. There is plenty of seating and double doors lead directly into the sunroom, which, if you can stop yourself from looking at the view, is a great place to read a book or catch up with emails (wireless internet access is provided).
From the main living room a corridor runs to the downstairs double bedroom, bathroom and optional spare bedroom with a handy fold out sofa bed. The owners of this self-catering cottage are hoteliers, and they have used their expertise in this area when furnishing and appointing the property. As a result, all of the beds and linen are of an excellent quality and comfort, giving you hotel luxuries in the home-from-home environment of this excellent holiday cottage.
The upstairs bedroom is a large spacious room, with plenty of storage space and views to the sea. The twin room upstairs is equally large and has a window looking out onto the hills behind The Croft. There is also a good-sized bathroom upstairs with a very large shower. This is a warm well insulated property, and makes for a very comfortable, relaxing house to holiday in.
There are some lovely walks straight from the door. Turning right a short walk up onto the open hill tops rewards with a fantastic panoramic view, particularly impressive is the view of Ardnamurchan peninsula and out to the Atlantic Ocean beyond. A 10-minute walk down the hill from The Croft will take you to Tobermory’s main street, right on the harbour front. Here you will find many good eateries, shops, cafes and pubs along with some lovely coastal walks to explore too.
The Croft has a small planted garden by the front door, and a larger hill garden to the rear, where there is a large veranda with excellent views, a seating area for dining outside, and two entrances into the house, one into the sunroom, another via double doors into the dining room. It offers a picturesque, peaceful holiday home on the doorstep of the island’s charming capital – the best of both worlds!
