If you’ve ever dreamt of getting away from it all and escaping into nature, Gneiss House could be exactly what you’re looking for. Constructed from natural stone and timber cladding and with a turfed roof, this home for two sits beautifully in the rugged landscape while offering all the modern comforts and amenities you’d expect in a boutique accommodation. The spectacular sea loch and mountain views will ensure an unforgettably peaceful and relaxing holiday.
An open plan living area boasts expansive views across the surrounding land thanks to its floor to ceiling windows. The comfy chesterfield sofas are the perfect spot to relax with a cup of tea and experience the changing face of the landscape through all weathers, with a wood burning stove and complimentary supply of logs on hand to keep you warm if it gets chilly. You won’t need to sacrifice those modern touches thanks to 4G WiFi, underfloor heating and a Smart TV while the light, contemporary décor is fresh and airy. Stylish artwork complements the boutique feel.
The modern, well-equipped kitchen features a wooden dining table and espresso machine, just the thing to kick start your day before heading out to explore the stunning surroundings, or why not rustle up something delicious in the evening and watch the sun set over the loch while you eat?
The bedroom, decorated in a neutral, calm colour palette, boasts an ultra-comfy king size bed complete with sumptuous bedding, and provides a welcoming haven to retire to at the end of the day; with no traffic noise or streetlights, you can’t fail to have the most restful of sleeps.
For that extra special touch of luxury, you can enjoy your own private spa experience with a jet bath in the modern bathroom, a walk-in shower room and a sauna with loch views. Fluffy robes and towels provided!

Beautiful house in a breathtaking setting. We had a wonderful stay and wished we had stayed longer. We sat outside and watched shooting stars and woke to find rainbows. The facilities in the house were superb , we felt no need to venture out in the evenings we were super cosy by the log burner . The bed was very comfortable with lovely bedding . We will almost certainly book again and recommend widely. Thank you so much for creating a dream holiday destination Kate , Jamie and Connie- Salisbury Wilts.
