The Bothy is a self-contained and independent unit of Belinda and Hugh's lovely home, but it has the same fantastic views of the lake and the mountains as their own sitting room. It has a small kitchen so you can be as independent as you wish, and a comfortable lounge with "that" view! The main bedroom has a king bed, but there are two single beds in a mezzanine loft (with ladder access) for the family, or a pull-out couch which makes into a comfy bed for one extra.
The Bothy was purpose built in 2004 to be an independent "home away from home" for our friends and family. It is attached to the house, but has its own entrance from outside, so you can be as social or as independent as you wish.
It has a good sized lounge with a convertible sofa and large easy chair as well as a table and chairs. The Bothy does sleep five, but please note that it is not a big area for five adults, and the two single beds require ladder access.
A flat screen TV with DVD player, radio with CD player, a small library and wicker chest containing toys and games which could also double as a coffee table are also included.
The kitchen has the normal facilities including crockery, cutlery, pots and pans, hotplate, microwave, fridge and coffee plunger, and has a beautiful natural wood breakfast bar with four stools.
The mezzanine loft is accessible via a cunning pull-out ladder - supervision would be required if it was to be used by small children.
You can park inside the property, out of sight of the road, and walk up the short path, past the hot tub which is fed directly from a geothermal bore, directly to the Bothy door. There you will also see the outdoor fireplace, the gas barbecue and large outdoor table which you are always welcome to use. Play games on the large lawn, or let the children explore the playhouse at the bottom of the garden. If you have restricted mobility there is easy level access as well - a wheelchair would be no problem.

We will usually be on hand to welcome you, answer questions or make recommendations, but the beauty of The Bothy is that you can be totally independent if you wish. For example we will provide you with everything you need for a healthy breakfast, and it will be your choice when and where you enjoy it.
The main bedroom contains a king bed, and has direct access to the bathroom. It has two Velux skylight windows for ample air and light, and double doors to the outside. All linen, plus bathrobes, hair-dryer, iron and ironing board and a bedside radio are supplied. There is a folder on the kitchen bench with instructions on how things work and tips and suggestions for your stay in The Bothy, and we really appreciate it when our guests read these few important notes. Thanks!
Although in The Bothy our guests can be totally independent, at the same time it is part of our home, and we would expect our guests to accord us the normal respect, as we would if the roles were reversed.
