A guest review

Staying at the Sawmill felt like being at home. A really cosy house in a wonderful location, we were given a warm welcome and enjoyed our stay immensely. Very clean with comfortable beds, everything that you need.

About the property

A 2 bedroom self cater option adjoining the Water Mill Bed & Breakfast. Full of character in a lovely garden and stream setting. Pure relaxation.

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. When you are ready to venture out to do things you will find its location on the Cowal Way long distance path, complete with a collection service at the end of your days walking, is just one of the things to do in the area.

You enter the Saw Mill into the large and roomy lounge, with beamed ceiling, and an open plan kitchen and dining area. With a pot bellied wood burning stove it is a wonderful space to return to after your walking or touring to in the evening. There is a BBQ and sitting area on the patio which has views over the garden.

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

A great two days spent in this quirky, lovely magical place. Had breakfasts at Water mill b and b next door with the wonderful Sandra. Highlight apart from the breakfasts was watching red squirrels feeding while we ate. Such a beautiful quiet place
