A cottage with a view
Bayview Cottage is a 19th century cottage in the lovely seaside village of Portmahomack. It has very recently been extended and completely renovated, and has fantastic views from the back garden, living room and balcony. Portmahomack is ideal for those who want a relaxing holiday with lovely scenery, but it also offers golf, walking and watersports for the more energetic! Because Portmahomack sits in a bay of the Dornoch Firth, it faces westwards over the Firth (unusual for a village on the east coast!). The back garden and balcony of Bay View face over the bay and enjoys a lot of sun and lovely sunsets over the water.
Bayview Cottage is very comfortable and equipped to a high standard. The house was built in the 1850s but has just been completely renovated and extended. On the ground floor there are 3 bedrooms (2 doubles and a twin), bathroom, toilet, utility room and back door to a small sheltered back garden with lovely views.
Upstairs is a lovely living room and kitchen/dining area. The new kitchen is well equipped and has an electric cooker, fridge/freezer and dishwasher. There is a dining table for 6. The living room is comfortable, and has a multi-fuel stove. There is a TV and wireless broadband. The views which give the cottage its traditional name of Bay View are wonderful from the living room. If you’re feeling lazy, you can just sit and watch the comings and goings at the harbour, the beach, the birds, sometimes even dolphins, and the occasional waterskier or windsurfer.
Step through the patio doors from the living room out on to a spacious balcony with decking, and the views are even better – stretching 180 degrees over the beach, the harbour, and across the Dornoch Firth to the hills of Sutherland. From the balcony there is an external stair down to the back garden and patio area.
The cottage is bright and cheerful and is decorated with the seaside in mind. It is very comfortable at any time of year. Heating is by electric storage heaters keeping the house warm all year round, and you can also use the multi fuel stove.
Electricity, bedding and towels are provided.
Pets are welcome by arrangement if they are well behaved!
