The Mill House at Ormidale - pool, hot tub, sauna

1 of 16
Holiday Rental House -
9 Bedrooms , 4 Bathrooms , Sleeps 22
Glendaruel, Cowal Peninsula, Argyll and Bute, Scotland
Ormidale House estate sits in 22 private acres surrounded by stunning scenery, on Scotland's gorgeous west coast. The Mill House at Ormidale has taken us two and a half years to restore, and was christened by its first guests as “the wow factory.” Hot tub, sauna, swimming pool and tennis court complement the high-end internal style and comfort.

With rooms on four levels, it will accommodate up to 14 adults, and up to 22 guests in total.

The main feature is the open plan 80m2 ground floor reception area which opens up from a fabulous kitchen, through the dining area with vaulted ceiling, into a generous living / lounging area with open fireplace. The dining and lounge areas feature the original exposed stone wall and light floods through a large glass archway incorporating the main house entrance into the courtyard.

Additional amenities & feature info
There are nine bedrooms altogether, each offering double or twin accommodation. The bedroom layout makes the most of the available space to maximize the number of guests we can accommodate, so while none of the rooms are enormous, two of them have either additional bunks or fold-away beds to increase the overall capacity to 22 including children.

We market the house as for 14 adults plus up to 8 children.

The six main bedrooms all have stylish contemporary wash-handbasins. Two bedrooms feature raised platform beds with storage underneath. Seven bedrooms are suitable for permanent adult occupation and there are two box / bunk bedrooms in addition.

There are three stunning bathrooms, with wall to wall travertine marble walls and slate floors, two of which feature jacuzzi baths, an...

About the neighbourhood
As well as general site-seeing and trips to the Island of Bute, Inverary and further afield, there are a host of other activities you can undertake around Glenaruel. It’s fabulous walking country and we’ve also provided twelve mountain bikes for those who want to explore on two wheels rather than four. There are some really excellent and quite varied routes direct from the house, involving all sorts of terrain and levels of strain!

Golf – there’s a lovely 9 hole pay and play course ten minutes away above Tighnabruaich. We’ve supplied five bags of golf clubs for the house and they probably won’t be too fussed about the usual rules re golf shoes provided you don’t arrive in jeans and carve the course up. The same applies to the almost equally spectacular nine hole course at Blairmore &...
