The property

Connel 5.3 miles.

The Cottage In The Woods is a welcoming abode on the outskirts of Taynuilt near Connel, Argyll and Bute.

An idyllic place for families or groups of friends wishing to get away from it all and relax in a rural quiet location surrounded by wildlife, wild gardens to sit and relax in with fire pits and BBQ and to explore the rural landscapes of Scotland.

Inside, the kitchen/diner offers everything you need for a self-catered stay, including a kitchen space to prepare some tasty meals, a dining area for planning the days ahead, and a sitting room to lounge around in front of the woodburning stove as the evenings grow darker.

Moving through the property, you will find three inviting bedrooms, two doubles and one single to catch a rest after a long day of exploration, whilst the bathroom invites you to get ready in style.

With woodland views all around, this cottage provides a large garden space outside to let your furry friend have a play among the lawn, or enjoy a spot of alfresco dining, and don't forget to take advantage of the fire pit under the stars.

If you can tear yourself away from your tranquil base, nearby you'll find The Glue Pot, Coasters Bar and Bistro, Grahams Grocers and Connel Village Store, all ideal for grabbing some food or local produce.

A short drive will bring you to the bustling and popular town of Oban, a perfect starting point for adventuring the Inner Hebridean islands of Mull and Rum, or grab a bite to eat on the waterfront at Piazza.

For those wanting to explore the coast, take a trip to Dunstaffnage, where you will find Dunstaffnage Castle and Chapel, Ocean Explorer Centre and Dunstaffnage Marina.

Whilst staying at the cottage, you must visit Taynuilt, a village situated on the river Nant, offering a wealth of attractions, including Taynuilt Golf Club, to get some golfing practice in, Taynuilt Community Garden Project, to seek wildlife, and Airds bay, for an afternoon stroll along the beach.

Enjoy all of this and more by booking The Cottage In The Woods.
