The Writer's Retreat
Fancy something a little more private but with all the comforts of a serviced guest room? Why not try the Writer's Retreat, an idyllic refuge for romantics, lovers of nostalgia or those looking for creative inspiration. Situated in the Pool House grounds, this delightful boathouse offers sea and river views, a woodburning stove, hot tub, and cosy adjacent shepherd's hut where you can rustle up a picnic before heading off into the hills (a hamper is provided).
For a truly luxurious self catered experience there is a contemporary cottage adjacent to the Guest House, which offers incredible views, seclusion and privacy. With one wall almost entirely of glass, the bedroom and sitting room are guaranteed spectacular sunsets in the summer and incomparable celestial skies in the winter. Includes wet room with large walk-in Zen shower, underfloor heating, outside hot tub with multi jets and mood lighting, wood burning stove, Sky tv with movie package, and access to our shared BBQ house with fire pit (at additional cost and on prior request). To find out more visit The Potager.

Poolewe is located in the centre of Wester Ross on a circular road, the A832. To the north lies Ullapool, a small town with the ferry terminal serving Stornoway in the Outer Hebrides and to the south Kyle of Lochalsh, and the Isle of Skye. We are less than 5 hours drive from Edinburgh or Glasgow and only 90 minutes from Inverness.
The most direct route from The South is to travel up the A9 to Inverness and follow the signs for Ullapool and the A835. Travel on this road until you reach the village of Garve, as you leave Garve there is a junction, turn left and take the A832 heading West. Follow the signs for Gairloch, then Poolewe is another 6 miles north of Gairloch. Pool House is situated in the centre of the village by the bridge where the river meets the sea.
It is also possible to take the more scenic route from Glasgow via Fort William to Kyle of Lochalsh and take the road to Lochcarron and Torridon. This is the longer route, but has wonderful scenery and is classed by the AA as one of the top 10 drives in the world!
