A guest review

The Joiners Shop is a lovely self contained holiday home, set in a beautiful peaceful location. Our host was close at hand and a font of local knowledge, but did not intrude at all. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and can heartily recommend the Joiners Shop.

About the property

A 1 bedroom self cater option adjoining the Water Mill Bed & Breakfast. Ideal base for walking the Cowal Way.

The property

The Water Mill, built in 1905 to service the grain on what was the Glendaruel Estate, and subsequently used as a Saw Mill, has been tastefully converted over the years while still retaining its character. Now used as a quality B&B and two self catering options: The Saw Mill and The Joiner’s Shop.

The property sits within a beautiful secluded garden, complete with the original Mill Pond and streams that generated the power to service the mill. The Water Mill offers a truly chill-out and deeply peaceful break.

The Joiner’s Shop offers a one bedroom self cater option. Being on the ground floor and with it’s own access, it is ideal for a single traveller or couple bringing their dog.

Dining options

You may be booked to stay on a self-cater basis but you have the option to have dinner next door at the Water Mill. 24 hours notice. £25 for 3 courses. Special diets catered or.

What the guests say

Maison pittoresque. Accueil chaleureux. Décors champêtre. Il ne manque que les farfadets.  (Picturesque house. Heartwarming welcome. Country decorations. All that’s missing is the leprechauns.)
