If you are looking for a cosy comfortable place for an out of season stay, look no further! We are open all year round, and can offer flexibility with arrival and departure dates in the winter months.
What to expect out of season
Whichever cottage you choose and whatever the weather you will be warm and cosy. The Treshnish Cottages are all heated with wood-chip, and all (bar Shieling) have a wood-burning stove. The Haunn Cottages have electric heating with adjustable thermostats and wood-burning stoves! We have locally sourced bags of logs for sale at the farm as our stoves do not burn coal.
The island in winter
The island in winter slows down. There is still plenty of wildlife to be seen, look at Prasad’s book in your cottage to give you an idea of what you might see. You may have the beach all to yourself..
The weather can be wild, so be prepared for all weathers. Wet, windy, sunny, calm, stormy… It is rare for it to snow here, but very occasionally it does.
There are less cafes and eating places open – but we are happy to advise you on places that are! You can check out the Mull and Iona Food Trail leaflet in the cottage too.
Both An Tobar, the art centre in Tobermory, and the Mull Theatre put on events throughout the year. It is worth looking at their website in case there is anything of interest on when you plan to be here.
Weekend or mid week breaks are popular now that the ferries are cheaper. The late ferry on a Friday evening means you can leave Glasgow (for example) after work and catch the last boat from Oban. Wake up on Saturday morning with this wonderful view!
The smaller cottages are perfect for artists or writers looking for a place to get away and write or paint. In the winter season from November through to early March we are happy to take longer bookings and can negotiate on the price. Please contact us if you are looking for somewhere to stay and be creative. We could have just the cottage – both Shian and Duill have ‘sitooteries’ (sunspaces) which could be used as a small studio.
