Studio Cottage

Studio stands out from other Isle of Mull cottages – a stylish farm steading conversion – spacious and comfortable, on a beautiful working farm with wonderful sea views all year round from the sunroom!

Treshnish and Haunn Cottages are a selection of eight carefully managed comfortable Isle of Mull cottages – and the Studio is the largest one here on the farm, sleeping 4 + 2. It is an architect designed steading conversion, located on the south west corner of the traditional farm square at Treshnish. The interesting layout of Studio with the 2 public rooms provides families with flexible living space without it feeling too big when rented by a couple.Studio has full central heating, run off the wood-chip boiler, and is eclectically decorated with a mixture of antique and modern furniture and paintings.  Electricity is home produced, from our own turbine, and on still days when the turbine is not generating the system automatically imports energy from the national grid.

We have tried to preserve the external appearance of the farm steading whilst creating a spacious and comfrtaible interior. Each room has high coombed ceilings, which give an airy feel. Large square Veluxes in the sitting room and main bedroom create plenty of passive solar gain when the sun is shining.

The entrance hall (with adjoining shower-room, W.C., basin and separate utility room) opens into the spacious sitting room.

The large sitting room has one view to the north across the farmyard and through the trees in the owners garden to the sea and Calgary Point. Glazed doors on the hall and entrance door provide a westerly aspect and indirect view, and the Veluxes in the high coombed ceiling give the room bright and warm southerly light.  The sitting room is furnished with comfortable sofas, armchairs and has a wood burning stove. Two single ‘box beds’ (for the + 2) in the west wall provide an alternative to a sofa bed. There is a TV and DVD player with a selection of DVDs.  The floor is red pine with rugs.

The main bedroom is accessed from the sitting room and has a 6′ (super kingsize) double bed. A new window on the north wall gives a view out across the farm yard beyond Shieling and the farmhouse garden, through trees, to the sea, and there is a large Velux skylight window set into the coombed ceiling floods the room with light and gives the room a relaxing view of the sky – at night you can lie in bed watching the stars!  An antique marble washstand works as a dressing table, and there is ample hanging space in the wardrobe.  There is also a small low energy flat screen TV. This room has a red pine floor with rugs.

An attractive spiral staircase leads from the kitchen up to a romantic open sleeping gallery/mezzanine, with a newly added velux window set into the coombed ceiling with views over the Point and the sea. This has a double bed.

The kitchen/dining room affords outstanding views out to the Point and to the sea from its small sunroom.  From these window seats you can catch the best sunsets all year round – over the old grassy ‘stack yard’ and the owners’ kitchen garden.   The kitchen itself is well equipped with a gas stove (electric fan oven), fridge freezer, microwave, food processor, dishwasher, dining table and chairs. A separate cupboard houses a washing machine. There is a clothes airer in the utility room (we have a tumble drier in the Treshnish Laundry which guests can use in a ‘drying emergency’!)

The bathroom is next door to the kitchen and has bath, W.C. and basin. It has a reclaimed maple floor.
During winter 2012, the external walls of the sittingroom and downstairs bedroom had wall insulation added to improve the insulation performance of the rooms.

There is a small grassy garden with colourful Rosa Rugosa hedging and a garden bench/table – beyond the hedge there is an area for parking the car and a grassy bank provides extra space for children to play. Dogs are welcome in all our Isle of Mull cottages.
