The Waterhouse

The Waterhouse is a unique hand-crafted, eco, oak framed pole-house beside a  large pond.
Set in an acre of beautifully planted secluded garden and open under the Scottish Garden Scheme.
Weekend 3 day breaks /Weekday 4 day breaks all year .Week bookings- Fri, Sat, or Monday changeover. Sleeps 4.

The Boathouse
The Boathouse is a small but fully equipped luxury Wigwam en-suite chalet added in 2011 sleeping 2 in a double bed. It can only be rented with The Waterhouse. It looks like an upside down wooden boat, hence the name and is located on the other side of the car park, next to The Waterhouse. The interior is wood clad, attractive and cosy.  Groups coming to stay can be flexible, choosing to have their own space, cooking for themselves (particularly breakfast), as well as joining others in The Waterhouse and of course the Hot Tub.
