Accès des voyageurs
The whole of PEREGRINE Cottage sl. 2-4 (on LEFT of Pic1) is yours to enjoy, as well as the left section of the large landscaped garden, separated by a tall hedge from the garden next door. There is a wooden table & bench on the sunny terrace at the front of the house, the better to enjoy the sea views over a cup of coffee or glass of wine. Let the children pick the raspberries and redcurrants in the garden (before the birds do!) and try rock-fishing only 200 yards across from the cottage. Enjoy the picturesque coastal walk with your dog (NB: dog supplement is £30 per dog/wk) but remember to take your binoculars, because the farm is a haven for wildlife. Deer, foxes, badgers and all manners of endangered rare birds abound, due to the owners' conservationist policy. There is a small seal colony of seals which can often be seen basking on the nearby rocks in the summer months. You'll find plenty of safe, private parking space in front of PEREGRINE for cars or boats alike.

We'll be waiting for you at CUTREOCH FARM (where we live) to give you the KEYS and from Cutreoch, we'll take you to PEREGRINE Cottage, just 1 mile down the private road. We'll proceed to show you round the premises & make sure you're comfortably settled etc ... before finally leaving you to enjoy your new holiday home and surroundings. You'll find complimentary fresh flowers & wine in the fridge upon arrival, while guests booking for the FULL WEEK can also expect a platter of luxury canapes. Later on during the week, feel free to pop in at Cutreoch should you wish to buy organic free-range eggs or to view Chantal's quirky animal-painted rocks. Phone first though, to make sure I am at home.
DIGITAL DETOX RECOMMENDED: You'll find a large screen TV + DVD player at PEREGRINE but bear in mind there is no WIFI and mobile reception is quite poor.
However, there is a FREE WIFI Cafe in St NInian's Hall, only 1.2 mile from cottage, which by the way serves delicious, very reasonably priced breakfasts (cf Feedback from previous guests) and enjoys unbeatable sea views.
