Rosgorm was completely renovated in 2014 and provides luxurious 5* holiday accommodation for up to 6 people in a traditional cottage in the heart of the village, just a few minutes’ walk from all local amenities and the safe, sandy beaches of Port Charlotte.
The house has state of the art underfloor heating throughout and is fully insulated to ensure a cosy home whatever the weather. The house is tiled throughout on the ground floor and fully carpeted on the first floor.
There is a spacious entrance hall with door to a cloakroom with toilet and wash basin, plenty of hanging space for coats and a rack for shoes and boots.
The entrance hall leads into a large open plan kitchen dining room with a high spec modern fitted kitchen and a table seating 6 people comfortably. The kitchen has all Neff appliances including induction hob, multifunction oven, dishwasher, fridge freezer, coffee machine and a quooker boiling water tap.
Three steps lead down from the kitchen into the garden room which has a sofa/day bed, a wall mounted smart TV connected to the internet and glass sliding doors leading onto the garden and patio. There is also a door to the utility area housing a washing machine, tumble dryer and drying room.
Double doors from the dining area lead to the cosy lounge with wood burning stove, large leather sofas, HD TV and small writing desk and chair. TVs have freeview channels and there is free WiFi for guests.
The fully enclosed private garden catches the sun throughout the day. There are lounger chairs and a table for outdoor dining, a BBQ, outside lighting and a fire pit for keeping away the evening chill and the midges when you feel like sitting outside stargazing.
Upstairs there are three double bedrooms, two with double beds and one with a king size bed and ensuite shower room. All have plenty of drawer and hanging space, beds with high quality pocket sprung mattresses and pure cotton bed linen. The two bedrooms with rear windows have stunning views over Loch Indaal and the hills beyond.
There is a family bathroom on the first floor with bath and thermostatic over bath shower, an ensuite wet room to the master bedroom with aqualisa thermostatic shower and a cloakroom downstairs with toilet and basin.
Port Charlotte is a pretty conservation village of whitewashed Victorian cottages originally built to provide accommodation for the local distillery workers. The village has a tranquil location on the shores of Loch Indaal with its white sandy beaches and sheltered waters.
It is perfectly located for the many attractions Islay has to offer including tours of the 8 local distilleries, bird and wild life watching, walking and cycling trails, pony trekking, island hopping to Jura or Colonsay, stunning deserted beaches stretching for miles, a world class links golf course and many ancient historical sites.
There are three excellent restaurants in the village: the award winning Port Charlotte Hotel with its fine dining restaurant and a cosy bar with over 200 Islay whiskies on offer; the Loch Indaal Hotel, with locally sourced seafood and reasonably priced pub menu; Yan’s Kitchen for seafood and dishes using locally sourced produce. Both hotels regularly have live traditional music playing.
Local amenities include a well-stocked village shop with post office and fuel pump, bicycle hire, the Museum of Islay Life and the Islay Wildlife Centre.
“We loved your house and all its wonderful touches. It allowed us a quiet space to relax. I would hope to return … for a longer break and will certainly be recommending it. My husband particularly enjoyed the coffee maker. Yarek and Kamila were very helpful and welcoming.”
“We loved the house and felt so at ease there. It is just beautiful. Even the beds were fabulously comfortable and luxurious. Thank you so much for a wonderful stay.”
“The cottage was fantastic thanks and I take it whoever designed the hot water tap got a knighthood for that! What an incredible invention! “
“Thank you so much for letting us stay in your wonderful house. It is absolutely beautiful and everything we wanted, and more. The layout, the location, the interiors, the rooms, the views, the facilities…everything was perfect.”
