Due to the current suitation we are not taking any bookings for the remainder of 2020.

Perfect location for a luxury, open plan loft conversion. Very comfortably furnished, open plan design with a king size bed and a large comfy sofa.  Wood burning stove with free logs, coal and peat. Large tv with basic Sky package included. Free wifi. 

A small, well equipped galley style kitchen equipped with large combination microwave/oven/grill and ceramic hob. Probably one of the best views ever from a kitchen sink, with Kisimul castle right in front. A dining table for two sits at the end of the kitchen area. Very stylish frosted glass walled bathroom with separate shower and bath. Just feet from the ferry and bus stop. Close to the shops and bars, together with the sports centre, library and doctors surgery. Garden for use of loft guests only overlooks the castle. 

Please note that access is via two sets of stairs, and is above the living accommodation of the Post Office. One or two small dogs may be allowed, but this must be discussed at the time of booking.
