The Byre is a unique stone walled studio converted from a barn and is perfect for a peaceful break or romantic getaway! Futon bed base with a hotel quality double mattress in large self catering accommodation with stunning views of the sea and islands and within easy walk of a shop, bar/restaurant and beach. A small but well equipped kitchenette with microwave & hob/oven (H36.5 W47.5 D30.7cm) Plenty of hot water for showering. Woodburner and 2 heaters. Great location as a base to explore.

The space
BED - We provide hotel quality polycotton bedding and towels for 2 guests in the double futon bed base with a luxury hotel quality mattress. No additional guests are allowed.

CHILDREN - This property is not suitable for children. Please contact us if you do not believe this is an issue for your group.

FOOD & DRINK - We provide tea and coffee making materials including fresh milk and sugar. The Kitchen is small but well equipped with a microwave & small oven (H36.5, W47.5, D30.7cm) with hob.

WOOD - We provide firelighters, matches, kindling, coal and logs. Should you need more during your stay it is all available at the local shop around the corner. The woodburner is cleaned and ready for you to start your fire. You may be a dab hand at using a woodburner but if not there are some instructions/advice handy.

WIFI & MOBILES - WiFi is available in the property. Mobile reception is patchy (depending on your network provider). There is a TV with freeview box and a selection of DVDs. There is no radio in the property.

ACCESSIBILITY - The property is all on 1 level except for 2 outdoor steps (please see photos) so might be convenient for guests with limited mobility but not for wheelchairs.

PETS - The property is pet friendly with securely fenced garden and off road parking but please let us know if you are bringing animals so we can do additional cleaning for the next guests...
