Self-Catering Cottage on Mull of Kintyre
Our cottage is located in the village of Southend, the southern-most village on the Mull of Kintyre peninsula. Looking out onto Dunaverty Golf Club it provides stunning views that have to be seen to be believed. Once here there is no doubt you will quickly relax into your holiday. The cottage has 3 bedrooms; a double and 2 spacious twin rooms as well as a double sofa bed located in the large lounge, allowing Osborne Cottage to accommodate up to eight people if required.
When offering our unique property to rent as a holiday home, we are very mindful of how we balance the ‘get away from it all’ feel, with the need that all people have for the wealth of gadgets people like to have at their fingertips. We feel we have got that balance just right.
Our family has holidayed here on many occasions since we purchased it in 2011, and as such we have got to know what is needed by a family on a short break to amuse both the small kids and also the big kids (adults). As such you we hope that you will find that we have got it all covered.
In the living room you’ll find a large screen smart television complete with a full Sky HD package, Netflix, Amazon etc meaning you can split your time between watching your favourite shows and watching the views over the golf course and out to sea. Or, if nothing takes your fancy, choose from a large selection of family films to watch on the DVD player or games to play on the Nintendo Wii.
You can surf the net with complimentary Wifi access throughout the property or you can listen to music on the CD Player or on your phone via the Bluetooth speaker. If technology is not your thing and you really want to get away from it all then there is a wide selection of board games and a bigger selection of books for both adults and children.
The dining area has a large table and seating for eight people with a sliding door for easy access to and from the kitchen.
As you would expect with an Osborne Holiday Let, the kitchen comes fully equipped with all the modern day appliances that we have come so used to such as oven, hob and hood, washing machine, tumble dryer and dishwasher. The kitchen is fully stocked with cutlery and crockery, pots, pans, roasting trays and kitchen utensils so cooking for all the family will not be a problem. We also supply kitchen roll, dishwasher tablets, washing up liquid, hand wash and sanitiser as well as an ample supply of tea towels.
When the sun is shining why not enjoy a cup of tea or something stronger in the secluded South facing back garden. In the garden you find a shed which houses with a selection of outdoor toys, gas barbeque and outdoor seating. We also have two adults and two childrens bikes for your use. You will also find two full sets of golf clubs and balls as well as fishing equipment.
The garden is fully secured so your children and dogs can play there without the risk of escape – all we asked is that you lift any dog poos with the provided poop bags and put them in the bin provided (the poos not the dogs!).
The master bedroom has a king size bed and an en-suite toilet with a walk in electric shower. You will also find extra pillows and duvets/blankets should you need them. We have furnished it with a large wardrobe with plenty of coat hangers as well as a large chest of drawers, in which you will find a hairdryer and hair straighteners.
Both twin rooms are provided with two single beds with a wardrobe and chest of drawers and a chair (as that is where most clothes end up after all!).
After a long day at the beach, golfing, walking or hiking then there is nothing better than a long soak in a hot bath, so you have this provided in the main bathroom. If you just need a quick shower before that first glass of wine, then there is also the over bath shower.
Finally, after years of travelling by car with our young children we appreciate space may be at a premium so we have provided a number of ‘little things’ to assist with travelling with young children. So in the hall cupboards we have provided a high chair, travel cot, baby gates and a pram.
For your precious pampered pooches we have a medium sized dog bed and a couple of dog bowls.
As previously stated we have supplied a washing machine and tumble dryer in the kitchen and in the hall cupboards you will find an iron, iron board and a clothes airer.
We want you to relax and enjoy your break at Osborne Cottage, however we also have your safety in mind and the property is equipped with a first aid kit, fire extinguisher and fire blanket. There is also spare bulbs, batteries, torch, tool kit, candles etc.
So come and see our fantastic cottage in the beautiful village of Southend and we hope that you will agree that Osborne Cottage really is your “Home from Home”.
