We call this space The Tractor House, and it is one of three accommodation options available on Leob Croft, our organic working croft with livestock set in a totally unspoilt area of approximately 30 acres overlooking the sea.
On our Croft you will live close to nature and be able to escape the rush and madnesses of the outside world by walking, painting, studying (even anthroposophy!) or meditating the mysteries of life in peaceful and completely unspoilt surroundings.
At home you will have a simple, natural accommodation mostly made of wood which is comfortable and uncomplicated. 100% cotton sheets. There is no TV and patchy mobile phone service, meaning ample opportunity for relaxation.
From your own balcony you will have wonderful sea views of Staffa, the Burg and beyond.
The Tractor House is constructed entirely in wood and is very cosy. It has a balcony with a magnificent sea view of the Burg and Staffa beyond.
It is ideally suited for a couple but a baby or pet could probably be accommodated.
The Tractor House is set in a 30 acre working croft consisting of part pasture, part woodland and part wetland adjacent to the shore line. We have a calf called Stella, a donkey called Everette and 6 chickens and grow our own organic vegetable and fruit. Occasionally in the summer with have our jam shop open selling our own jams at the top of the drive on the main road. There are seals in the sea below us and lovely walks are possible either within the croft or beyond.
Interaction with guests
We get pleasure from people who enjoy staying here and enjoying the peaceful and unspoilt surroundings. We feel that it is important to respect people's privacy but at the same time we are particularly keen to meet people who share our wide interests which include a spiritual quest and a love of the natural world. We ourselves our anthroposophists which is Christian and based on the work of Rudolf Steiner. My wife Ann has Parkinson disease and in the absence of any therapists near to hand we have developed our own therapeutic exercises including rhythmic work, eurythmy and singing. If there was any interest I would open to explore this further.
Other things to note

The Tractor House may be unsuitable for younger children due to the gaps on either side of the entrance walkway.
Quietness is appreciated. Its not suitable for parties or celebrations but is great for quiet reflective time close to nature, and as a base to explore the stunning Isles of Mull and Iona.
From Jun 30 - Aug 17, 2018 the minimum stay is 7 nights.
