El lugar

Inverbroom is a 6 bedroom detached Victorian villa with a magnificent sea view and large walled garden. On the edge of Port Bannatyne on the Isle of Bute, it has recently been completely renovated to a very high standard and is a perfect family holiday home. It sleeps 12 people (more if there are small children). There are three floors, with the main entrance being in the middle floor. From the front door you can see along the generous hall out through the window that runs the full drop of the stairs, out over the sea to the Cowal hills. The house has been decorated throughout to the highest standards and is furnished with a lovely selection of antique and 20th century modern furniture.
There is large main living room on the middle floor, with extraordinary seaviews. It is a lovely place to sit and read or watch the weather or the birdlife. We deliberately have no TV in this room. The middle floor has the master bedroom, also with a seaview, and another bedroom, looking up to the woods. There is a large bathroom with a walk-in monsoon shower and a claw foot bath.
Downstairs you can access the garden directly from the central hallway. This floor has the huge kitchen/dining room, which runs the length of the house, with a dining table that will seat 12. The kitchen has extensive work surfaces and is generously stocked with kitchen equipment (we like to cook) including a magimix, coffee makers, breadmaker, juicer and good knives. There is a gas hob and a wonderful wood burning oven which acts like an Aga, heating the room as well as baking bread and cakes wonderfully. This floor also has a morning room, with a 3 seater sofa, a chaise longue, easy chairs, a wood burning stove and a TV. There are lovely views over the sea and the garden. Finally, there is the 'den', a cosy room with wooden floors and squishy seats, dedicated to the younger family members or the TV/gamers. This room has TV, with Freeview and BT Vision, DVD player and a wireless point and is set up to be great for movie watching and gaming. There are a selection of DVDs, books and games and there is also WiFi throughout the house.
The upper floor is given over to four bedrooms and a second bathroom, with bath with shower over, toilet, bidet and sink. The four bedrooms are roughly identical in size, two with seaviews and two with views of the wood. Two have double beds and two have twin beds. The generous landing has a comfy chair and a small TV with a DVD player.
The house is fully gas central heated, and has two boilers so there is always hot water and heat if needed. Four of the rooms have open fires, and one has a wood burning stove. There is a plentiful supply of wood. There is on-street parking, and space for a car to the rear of the property, accessed through double gates via a side road.
The garden is mostly given over to lawn - with room for kids to play football! We have a thriving fruit bed with raspberries, blackcurrants, redcurrants, blackberries and gooseberries. There are 6 large apple trees and a newly planted orchard of damsons, plums and greengages. Any summer or Autumn visit is likely to offer something nice for pudding. We have a dog ourselves, so dogs are more than welcome and the walled garden is secure for kids and canines.
We have recently renovated the garden cottage, which is available for rental in addition to the house (not available separately). It sleeps two in a double bed (with room for a cot if necessary). There is a main room with bed, woodburning stove, and sofa, a small fully equipped kitchen with its own woodburning stove, and a bathroom with shower, toilet and sink
The Isle of Bute is a lovely safe place for a holiday. You can walk along the beach by stepping out through the gate at the bottom of the garden. The walk into Port Bannatyne takes 10 minutes and takes you to a great post office/cafe, two very friendly pubs and a restaurant as well as the expanding marina. Our kids love the short cycle ride to the 'rec' - a playing field with swings and slides, football pitch and a petanque court. Bute has glorious beaches, hills and forests to explore, a proper town - Rothesay - with butchers, bakers, fishmongers and supermarkets and cinema and a grand house - Mountstuart - probably the finest stately home in Scotland: where Stella McCartney got married!

We stayed at Inverbroom House during July for 4 nights - 6 adults and 8 children (two were babies). The house is gorgeous, very homely and has everything you need for a perfect family holiday. The location on the island is super - nothing is more than 20 mins away in terms of all main attractions and places of interest. Nick sent a fantastic guide before we arrived too! There is a dishwasher which came in very handy. The garden was such a bonus as kids just let loose in it and could easily hang out on the beach area outside too. Isle of Bute is a beautiful island, we loved it!

Elevated location over Kames Bay, the perfect location for a special family gathering. Badminton tournament in the garden, rockpooling on Kames beach and short walk to explore Kames Castle and walled garden (permission req).

Eleven of us, plus a baby and two dogs, spent a brilliant long weekend at Nick's house on Bute. The house and sizeable garden has everything you could need for a great stay. The house is situated on the shore road, and feels secluded despite being only a few minutes' walk to the nearest pub (the must-visit Scottish Honky Tonk!) a five minute walk to Port Bannatyne harbour and a pleasurable half-hour stroll into Rothesay. The kitchen is very well-equipped, with everything you'll need to cater for a large group. The barbecue in the garden is great, so just pack some charcoal instead of fiddly disposables if our plan to BBQ. Some of our group went fishing and caught mackerel round near the marina, pack a rod if that's your thing! We highly recommend a stay at this ace house!

I loved this house! We stayed for the weekend with friends and family and everyone raved about it. The location is beautiful with spectacular views, the house is well equipped, comfortable and very stylish. I loved the decor and the atmosphere. No one wanted to leave and we can't wait to go back! We had cars with us and only a very short drive to main shops. There is a small shop within walking distance also. Communication was excellent. Thanks!

The house was perfect for 11 of us plus dogs over Christmas period. Lovely house on three levels with plenty of space. I personally enjoyed the 'quiet lounge' taking in the sea views with a good book! Lots of open fires throughout the house which we enjoyed. The location was perfect for exploring Bute. Nick was extremely helpful with the booking, in the run up to the stay supporting me with recommendations to ensure I could order Christmas 'essentials' and was quick to respond on the few times I contacted him during the stay. Bute is lovely and this was our first visit so definitely hope to return in the future. The house + Bute = an amazing family christmas!

Thanks so much for this review! The comment about cleanliness in the kitchen was due to some mould on wooden utensils in a drawer. This was caused by the winter atmosphere and has now been remedied

I'm a museum director in Manchester and fell in love with Bute about six years ago when my wife Maria and I began exploring the Scottish islands. We bought the house 5 years ago and spent a couple of years restoring it.

We stay in it regularly with our kids (and dog) and have now got involved with the restoration of the Rothesay Pavilion.

We love the house and didn't want it standing empty for too long so we've recently joined AirBnB to share it with other people
