Large farmhouse and holiday cottage near Dunoon sleeping 23 for groups of friends and families for off-grid weekends and active breaks

Holiday Rental for Groups of Families and Friends.
Bernice Farmhouse and Cottage, Loch Eck, Dunoon, Argyll, sleeps 4-22 in 7 bedrooms.

Bernice Farmhouse and Cottage sleep up to 24 across the 2 houses. Set back from the shores of Lock Eck our bothy style bunk house accommodation is ideally suited for outdoor enthusiasts seeking a west coast getaway.

Built in 1778 both properties have been modernised and include solar panel power and log burning stoves to bring comfort to your rural retreat. The farmhouse has 5 bedrooms a mix of bunks and singles across 2 floors whilst the cottage has 2 rooms on ground floor level. Both units are equipped with bathroom and kitchen facilities and have comfortable sitting rooms to dine and socialise.

The accommodation is accessed by forest track, an old Drovers route through a pass in the mountains to the rear and a tumbling burn to the side. It feels remote here - water comes from the burn, power from the solar panels, backed up by the generator. There is no TV reception and no landline, there is a mobile reception should you want to stay connected. Bernice offers a uniquely scenic and peaceful off-grid experience for adventurous groups.

There's plenty to keep you busy during your stay - with the Loch on the doorstep, why not try paddleboarding, canoeing or fishing and of course there's fantastic walking for all abilities as well as cycling and climbing too.

Both properties are available for short breaks and longer stays.
