Great Location but a few things need doing
A lovely view from this spacious cottage. Didn't see a pine marten but did get regular visits from a local fox. Wet weather meant access path to beach was a little difficult. Very steep, bumpy access to cottage down track from road and one car grounded on bumpy corner. Problem with toilet in main bathroom resolved quickly once we found correct person to contact - info in folder in cottage was incorrect. Owner was very helpful and kept us informed. Lovely sandy beach with wonderful views a brief walk through the trees. Loved the location and the cottage although the sitting room furniture could do with replacing and main oven wasn't working.

Excellent location but there are drawbacks
The location is ace, not too far from a pebble beach, but it's a bit of a trek back. Lots of wildlife around if you are up early and lucky enough to spot it. The biggest problem is the lack of a mobile phone signal, and no landline in case of emergencies. Which means someone has to drive down the road a mile or so before they can make contact with emergency services. Surely it would not hurt to leave a telephone plugged in with restricted services. The other problem is the place is beginning to look quite jaded and in need of a bit of maintenance, and some of the kitchen equipment is cheap and nasty and unusable. The toilet seats were all loose, and the previous visitors had tried to tighten the fittings, but again cheap and nasty and poorly designed. The toilet seat downstairs actually broke away after a couple of uses as the hinge became detached. I bought a new toilet seat with a better hinge system and fitted it upstairs in the en-suite. Moved the one from there downstairs and fitted proper metal washers to the bolts on the other seats so they could be tightened properly as the plastic ones had disintegrated. The tiny TV in the lounge had an annoying buzz from the speakers, so became unwatchable after an hour or two. Considering how cheap TV?s are these days, that?s unforgivable. The windows were dirty, and I had to set to and clean them, inside and out, at least the bits I could reach. To be honest part of the dirtiness is in between the panes of double glazing so can never be cleaned. Afterwards the views through them could be admired so it was worth the effort. The Ceramic hob had lots of burnt-on over-spill around each of the elements, which needed a good soaking and lots of scrubbing to remove this. Afterwards a quick wipe after every use was all it needed. So a little self-help goes a long way. Considering the hand over period between guests is so short when fully booked, unless they have a lot of people in the cleaning crew, then this is bound to happen. It is a pity that such a lovely place is let down by old cheap fixtures, fittings and equipment. So the real question is "was it Value-for-Money"? For the above reasons I would have to say No.

Really cosy cottage for getting away from it all
Clearwater House is a cosy cottage at the bottom of a lane with amazing views across the sea loch. Just the place for getting away from crowds and having a cosy break. The cottage is well appointed including an open fire.
