We've all been there..... is the online description going to match up to the reality?
In the case of Sula it certainly did. Everything advertised is like it is. The house is spacious downstairs with very well equipped kitchen. L-shaped sitting/dining room with sliding window taking you out to the most lovely decking area with fabulous views over-looking Holy Island. Maisie (our Springer Spaniel) was hardly in the house and spent the entire time out there watching passing squirrels and people.
Wood-burner was lovely.
Bedrooms upstairs are small but there is plenty of storage space.
The garden is very, very pretty - we were there when the azaleas and rhododendrons were blooming and lots of other plants about to blossom.
A couple of wee things - why no bread bin or washing up bowl?
This place suited us very well. We had a really lovely holiday.
Thank you so much.
We have just returned from a week at Sula, our first stay on the Isle of Arran. Sula is a modern yet very comfortable property with everything you need for a relaxing holiday. The kitchen is well equipped should you want to self-cater and there's even a dishwasher! The bathroom is nice and big with a great shower and a large bath if you want a long soak after a day of walking. The view from the French window is stunning, we loved looking over to Holy Isle and seeing it come and go with the mist and clouds! The log burner was very cosy and it warmed the whole house through, the storage heaters were also effective for colder days. Lamlash is a 15 minute walk away and it is a lovely walk at that. The Co-op in the village sells pretty much everything and there are enough places to get a drink or a bite to eat. We enjoyed a nice meal at the Lamlash Bay Hotel. We would also recommend the Douglas Hotel in Brodick and Cafe Thyme at Old Byres. Plus, no visit is complete without a tour at the Isle of Arran distillery, one of our highlights of the holiday! Karen and Peter were wonderful hosts, thank you so much for letting us stay at Sula!
Have recently returned from lamlash, living in the beautiful sula cottage, all I can say is WOW, it is a very modern, spotless and very well equipped little diamond, the views from the decking are stunning and we particularly loved the wood burner in the evening when the temperature began to drop, this house has everything you need and more, but what made it that bit more special for me was the fact I could take my dog......I couldn't have a holiday without him, he enjoyed all the sights and long walks as did we, thank you to the owners, we can't wait to return
