Marybank Lodge Ref: SMMJ

"A true jewel in the crown..stretching north from the shores of the Cromarty Firth"

Set in the Northern Highlands where the lochs are deep, the air clear and the long beaches perfect for meandering along, there is space and time to refresh the mind, indulge in passions and revive the spirits at Balnagown.
Set amidst the natural splendour of Easter Ross, Balnagown Estate - historic seat of the Clan Ross - is a rich blend of farmland, woodland and heather-clad hills and is just a mere 30 minutes’ drive from Inverness, the Highland Capital and just north of the Cromarty and Moray Firths. Steeped in a history that spans generations, the Estate has been transformed into a breathtaking holiday retreat and offers a bespoke and professional service in the STB ‘5 Star’ properties: each property being exclusively furnished and equipped with every need. A superb base for touring this beautiful and unspoilt part of Scotland with easy access to many areas and attractions – so much to see and do for all ages. On the way to visit the nearby town of Dornoch, guests can stop at the Glenmorangie Distillery Visitor Centre to discover the delights of their whisky. In Dornoch a visit to the History Links Museum is recommended or a game of golf can be enjoyed on the famous links world championship course or a stroll along the award-winning sandy beach. Shin Falls Visitor Centre, Dunrobin Castle (hunting seat of the Countess of Sutherland), the Timespan Heritage Centre, Loch Fleet National Nature Reserve and John O’Groats are all within easy reach. From the north coast a ferry can be taken over to the Orkney Islands which offer beautiful, rugged scenery with an abundance of wildlife and many archaeological sites. A trip to the stunning and dramatic west coast is recommended – Eilean Donan Castle, the lovely villages of Plockton, Glenelg, Gairloch and Ullapool or travel over the bridge to the enigmatic Isle of Skye with the Cuillin mountain range, the popular town of Portree with its colourful cottages which line the harbour, or sample the produce at the Talisker Distillery. To the north west and north of Ullapool, a trip up the coastline with the many rocky inlets and deserted beaches leads to Cape Wrath, the most northwesterly point of Great Britain. In addition to the many activities which are available on the estate, there are many more in the area – golf, mountain biking on the many forest trails, sea and loch fishing, kayaking, bird-watching and horse riding to name but a few. Shop 6 miles, pubs 1 mile.

The Towers Ref: OTR

The Towers is a substantial harbour master’s mansion (for a harbour that was never made), and was built by John Platt in 1872. On a grand scale of over 5000 square feet, in a Gothic chateau style, it has been refurbished to an excellent standard. Located yards from the beach, this detached property boasts flexible holiday accommodation including a fine cinema room with a beautiful hand painted domed ceiling, dining room with seating for 20 people, beach room, library and games room. There is also a large kitchen with breakfast room, ten bedrooms and living room. Of particular note is the superb Balinese bedroom with its ornate beamed and Hessian ceiling which like many rooms, including the fantastic lantern tower, benefits from magnificent views across to the Isle of Anglesey and Puffin Island. The lawned garden has an attractive ornamental pond with a Japanese three-tier fountain surrounded by a 9-hole putting green. The driveway extends to the rear of the property where there is a further garden area and small orchard and parking for 10 vehicles.
The walled town of Conwy lies close by between Llandudno and Bangor, and with the West Coast train line passing through both towns, London is only 3 hours away. Conwy is home to an elegant 13th-century castle built by Edward I, as well as other buildings of note - such as the 14th-century timber and stone Aberconwy House (NT), the splendid Plas Mawr and what is reputed to be the smallest house in Britain. For art lovers, there is the Royal Cambrian Academy (where displays of Welsh artists’ work are shown during the annual summer exhibition). As well as being the major shopping town for the area, Llandudno is also home to Venue Cymru theatre which has a range of touring productions. The town also has two beaches and the famous views from the top of the Great Orme (679ft), jutting out into the Irish Sea, which can be explored by tramway, cable car or on foot. In the other direction is Ynys Môn (the Isle of Anglesey) with its 125 miles of coastline of fantastic beaches and rocky coves. For walkers, there are plenty of routes to explore - including The Cambrian Way which begins in Conwy, and winds its 274 miles to Cardiff, passing through some of Wales’ most wonderful upland scenery, and taking in the Carneddau, the Glyders, the Snowdon Massif, Cadair Idris and the Brecon Beacons.

Drury Lane Barn Ref: RKK3

Drury Lane Barn is a fine example of a detached, traditional barn that has been sympathetically converted by its present owners to a high specification, with modern conveniences added for ease of use - visitors can also enjoy sole use of an indoor heated swimming pool and tennis court during their stay. Set in a slightly elevated position away from main roads, and on the owners’ estate, there are far reaching views across open countryside and meadows - making this a truly peaceful setting. Drury Lane Barn is situated less than 5 miles from Whitchurch - a compact Shropshire town just inside Shropshire’s border with Wales. It is a town steeped in history with an array of beautiful buildings that house shops, pubs and some very notable restaurants. Built in Queen Anne style, the distinctive St Alkmund’s Church dominates the town, and the courtyard off the Bullring survives as the last remaining of several which existed until the 1950s. Close by are the villages of Hanmer and Malpas, with the City of Chester, Shrewsbury, and Llangollen with its river, canal, mountains and wonderful views of the Welsh countryside, all within easy access.
The barn’s central position on the Welsh, Shropshire and Cheshire borders makes it a perfect holiday base for exploring the sights of the three counties.

Raydale House Ref: IOS

Dating back to the 17th century, this period house was home to the last act of private and domestic warfare in England, possession of the house was fought over by Sir Thomas Metcalfe, known as the Black Knight of Nappa and Mrs Robinson. Thankfully the house now nestles in serenity amongst some of the prettiest scenery to be found in the Yorkshire Dales National Park, within a working farm environment and shooting estate. In an elevated position, the house is well placed for taking in the views not least from the conservatory where visitors can look over the landscaped gardens to the fields and hills beyond, but also down to Semerwater. Carefully restored, the holiday home combines original features with beautifully and sympathetically decorated rooms, which provide ample space for a group of 12 people.
The bustling market town of Hawes is close by, where one can visit the Dales Centre Museum and Creamery, home to Wallace and Gromits favourite cheese. Semerwater, the large natural lake at the head of the valley, provides a wealth of activities, such as swimming, fishing and sailing. Shops and pubs 4 miles.

This property is close to the 2014 Tour de France route, come and experience the spectacular scenery for yourself and follow in the trail of some true cycling legends.
