Take a deep breath...and relax in your cosy stylish retreat perfect for that bolthole escape you have been dreaming of. The Cabin sleeps 2  - 4 persons if you can bare to share! The hiss and crackle of the fire awaits you. So, kick off your muddy boots or leave your wetsuit at the door for an instant relax. Durness has something for everyone where you can wake up to the tantalising smell of  good coffee & freshly baked croissants from the village store before heading out to explore the stunning beaches and rugged hills on your doorstep. No matter what the weather the Cabin will meet your every need...cook up a storm while the winds huff and puff, brave our Atlantic swells on pristine beaches. Time to rejuvenate and find that inner child. Time to enjoy and just be.

Delectably warm for those intrepid winter visitors, a wood fired stove for ambience, and underfloor heating for generous warmth and comfort. The cabin is a warm cosy environment. Industrial style lighting for you to adapt to suit your mood. The kitchen is a hand built gorgeous mix of copper and inky back surfaces. The owners are dedicated foodies and have provided you with the tools to cook up a storm, a stunning and easy to use oven and oversized fridge...and for those who don't want to wash up on holiday we have a slimline dishwasher. For dining, a raised butchers block with tall chairs in the open plan kitchen area flows to the lounge, comfy settees and seating, perfect for watching movies, socialising or curling up with a good book. Or take it outside and watch village life unfold on our generous covered deck. There is also a washing machine on hand in the Cabin's in the store outside for guests use. There are two bedrooms, but we think its perfect for a couple; the double bedroom offers a quiet sanctuary should you wish to escape to a more intimate space, a handmade king-sized feather topped bed and a twin room is perfect for children or friends. The finest French linens are used throughout each room and can easily be made up as feather free if required. The Cabin is also fitted with an oversized shower and bespoke fixtures and fittings not forgetting an ample supply of indulgent bath linens.
