Property code: 85215

A red sandstone church from the outside but a stylish holiday home on the inside, full of charm and character. Set within the charming hamlet of Kilchattan Bay on the southern end of Bute.

Set tails wagging with a stay at this divine property at Kilchattan Bay on Scotland’s magical Isle of Bute. This former church has been transformed into a truly unique, four-bedroom holiday home, sleeping up to eight guests and also welcoming a duo of delighted dogs. Watch your four-legged friends enjoy the outside space here, with its lawn where they can run and play. Head down to the local beach where they can run free on the sand all year round.

Enter this wonderful property via the front door and venture through into the beautiful lounge/kitchen. Make a cup of tea to enjoy in front of the smart TV or while you take in the views, then head into the kitchen area to feed hungry hounds and cook dinner for your party. There is also an alternative kitchen/diner, with gorgeous church windows and a high ceiling, where you can gather together to eat. After dinner, amble through to another lounge to fire up the wood burner and unwind with your furry friends. Alternatively, watch the smart TV in the snug, with the French doors open, or listen to music or play in the games room. There are also two WCs, a family shower room and a utility room within the converted church, plus two king-size bedrooms, one with an en-suite shower room, a double bedroom, also with en-suite shower room, and a twin. The crowning glory, however, is the sumptuous bathroom, complete with free-standing bath, steam shower and sauna.

Head off on a 5-mile walk which forms part of the West Island Way and takes in sweeping vistas towards Arran. Hike less than 1 mile to Kilchattan Bay Reservoir or the same distance to Kelspoke Castle, the remains of a medieval fortified house with stunning views.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

A very lovely, and unusual property. Excellent location with the fabulous beach across the road and so many exceptional walks close by. The little local tea shop was great as well. Would have loved to know more of the history and design changes to the church to convert it to a home.

A sensational house that really is one of a kind. The church is beautifully converted, with a stunning kitchen and equally impressive bedrooms and bathrooms. We were a small group but it would have easily catered for a bigger one with space to spread out throughout the house, especially if you made use of the annexe at the end. The location is justRead more something else. Walk out the front door and you're on the sea, walk out the back and you're in a forest! We loved it and would use again! Hide
