An Cealla is a beautifully renovated new to the market 2 bedroom traditional cottage with sauna located in Glendale, Isle of Skye. The village of Glendale is one of the most picturesque destinations on Skye, located on the north west coast of the Island. There is an abundance of wildlife, and plenty of local attractions such as the Neist Point Lighthouse, Dunvegan Castle, and Coral Beach to name just a few.
The local shop and cafe (Cafe Lephin) is 1.5 miles away, and the nearest pub can be found in Dunvegan which is approx 8 miles away. Whether it's an active outdoor holiday you are looking for, or a peaceful, relaxing trip you’d prefer- Skye is the perfect destination as it caters for all.
The cottage itself sits in an elevated position with stunning views overlooking Loch Pooltiel- you can also see the Isle of Harris just across the water. There is plenty of parking available, and what make this cottage stand out is from others is it's private setting. You will regularly see buzzards, sea eagles and plenty of Stag and Deer from the front door. Usually they can be spotted in early morning and evenings. It’s a truly amazing sight.
Upstairs in the cottage you will find the two welcoming bedrooms with very comfy beds! The master bedroom has a super-king size bed, and the second bedroom has twin beds in it. There is also a bathroom with underfloor heating located upstairs in the property with a beautiful big bath sitting in front of the window, so you can take in the views while winding down after a busy day.
Downstairs in the cottage there is a good sized living room with a multi-fuel stove, DVD player and a 49" TV with Freesat channels (there is also a good selection of DVD's in the TV unit). There is also a spacious open plan dining room and kitchen area. There is another multi-fuel stove in the dining room to give you a lovely cosy feel when you sit down for your evening meal. In here you will also find a selection of books, board games, radio and an iPhone docking station. We will leave one bucket of coal for you to use during your stay (more coal can be purchased locally), but there are plenty of logs in the log store at the back of the house for your use. In the kitchen there is a dish washer, electric oven and hob, microwave and fridge freezer. It is a fully equipped kitchen, and hopefully we have thought of everything you will need during your stay. Downstairs in the property we also have a large double shower unit and toilet room which has underfloor heating.
With a separate entrance, you will find the utility room with washing machine, tumble dryer, sink, and also a seating area and sauna. The sauna is a great way to relax after a busy day of sight-seeing and walking. Please always read the instructions for the sauna before use, and never take food or drink in to it please! We don't supply dressing gowns at the cottage, so please remember to take some for your visit. Outside at the front of the cottage is a seating area, so feel free to have breakfast, lunch and dinner outside if you feel like it!
The property has electric heating and, and as mentioned, has two multi fuel stoves (please use the fireguards if younger children are with you during your stay). The cottage is filled with mahogany furniture throughout and beautifully decorated using soft colours, original oil paintings and Harris Tweed and velvet soft furnishings. High quality bedding and towels are also stay, as are disposable slippers, hot water bottles, hairdryers, and iron and ironing board.
Unfortunately we do not cater for young children at the property, so no high chair or cots are available. We do allow one small well behaved pet dog at the cottage with a supplement charge, but we ask that your pet not be allowed upstairs in the cottage or on any of the furniture.
We operate a key-safe arrival system allowing guests to enter the cottage anytime from 4 pm on Saturday, and vacating by 11 am or your leaving day.
An Cealla is an absolutely stunning holiday cottage with offers privacy and breathtaking views. We are sure you will have a wonderful stay!
As this is a new to the market property, we haven’t had it star rated yet, but we can guarantee that everything is of the highest quality- you will not be disappointed!
Professional photos will be on the site at the end of March.
