With amazing natural light from the huge sash windows and three tall lancet windows, open plan living here is a delight. Vast white walls, with interesting artwork (including a stag’s head), a soaring wooden ceiling and wooden floors make the Village Hall an unusual, contemporary and comfortable holiday house.
Located on the beautiful Kintyre Peninsula on lush farmland, it’s close to Machrihanish’s fine beaches and world famous golf courses, as well as near to the historic whisky and fishing port of Campbeltown (very handy for picking up supplies).
The Village Hall was originally built in 1899 as a Mission Church for the miners that worked the local coal mine and lived in the nearby cottages. When the local community decided that the Village Hall was underused and that the funds raised by its sale could be put to better use in the community, it was sold and converted to a house. The owners should be congratulated on a stunning conversion (using local craftsmen), which retains much of the original character and external traditional appearance, albeit with the latest modern comforts!
Superb facilities include two good-sized doubles and one twin bedroom, three bathrooms (one en-suite and with disabled access). A really stylish living space includes a huge flat screen TV, a spacious seating area, dining table for six and an open plan kitchen with dishwasher, microwave, a range-style oven with gas hob and a large fridge.
Good family facilities include a travel cot, high chair and stair gates. The Village Hall is surrounded by a small but secure garden area, with high stonewalls and iron railings to the front. Located next to a farm, kids will enjoy watching the cows graze and ambling off to be milked. There is a disabled access ramp to the back door and parking is adjacent to the property.
Drumlemble Village Hall is surrounded by rolling lush farmland with distant views to the islands of Islay and Jura. It’s great base for exploring this popular area, close to superb beaches, golf courses and historic Cambeltown. The drive via Inveraray and the mountains and lochs of Argyll is on good roads and one of the most scenic drives in Scotland. An interesting return route could be via Arran and the Clyde coast.
Enjoy a day at Machrihanish’s sandy beaches less than a mile away. The superb Westport beach is only a 10 minute drive. Why not enjoy a picnic in the dunes? It’s popular with surfers and offers dramatic views across to Islay and the Paps of Jura.
Try a few rounds at Machrihanish’s world famous golf course. Arguably one of the most challenging links and most beautiful courses in Scotland.
Discover Cambeltown with its palm trees, shops and eateries. The Cambeltown Heritage centre provides visual and historical insight into the life and times of Campbeltown and its people.
Explore Davaar Island, accessible from the mainland only at low tide by a shingle causeway. The island is uninhabited, except for goats and sheep (no dogs allowed), and you can visit an unusual cave painting of the Crucifixion secretly produced by a local artist in the late 1800s or climb the hill and soak up the views.
Sample a dram at the famous Springbank Distillery. They offer regular tours, providing a unique insight into the distillery and the area’s strong whisky-producing heritage. Springbank Distillery very unusually undertakes 100% of the process in-house.
