Tilliepestle sits nestled into trees with views over the surrounding fields and hills that surround the village of Dervaig on the Isle of Mull’s north coast. The house is located in the heart of the village, just opposite The Bellachroy - the oldest inn on Mull, and is only a few minutes' stroll from the edge of Loch Cuin, a tidal loch with a rocky coastline and home to some of Mull's fantastic wildlife.
Sleeping six people, Tilliepestle is a beautiful building combining timber beams and detailed stonework, to give the house an inviting and unique aesthetic. The house sits within an enclosed garden that is a mix of gravelled areas, timber decking and planters, with a couple of outdoor seating areas to take in the views. Tilliepestle is also for those wanting to enjoy both the wild and natural beauty of Mull, whilst having the convenience and facilities of one of Mull’s most attractive villages.

The hall then leads into the ground floor sitting area, a beautifully furnished space with a selection of books and games to enjoy and a childrens' area with books, games and toys. A set of double doors open to the garden and decking area which has set of table and chairs provided, and a barbeque area.

The kitchen is very well equipped for self-catering holidays, and there are great countryside views toward Kilmore church from the double doors, which can be opened on warm days.
The living area is a relaxing space in which to cosy up, and benefits from dual aspect windows – the larger of which has double doors that lead onto the covered balcony space, which is the perfect place to relax with a glass of wine or a coffee, in one of the rocking chairs provided.
Also upstairs is a second double bedroom, another very pleasant room with garden views and an en-suite bathroom. The bathroom has an extra door, so that it can be used while people are in the upstairs living area.
