Langwell Lodge lies in Strathoykel, set in the heart of a dramatic and unspoilt landscape and just a short walk from the River Oykel. Formerly part of Langwell Estate, the house was purchased by the current owners in 2012 and has been sensitively renovated by them to create an outstanding property. Work carried out includes re-wiring, re-plumbing, new bathrooms, a new kitchen, roof and wall insulation, the installation of a zoned heating and hot water system, upgrading of the private water supply and complete redecoration. The property retains all the character and style of a traditional Highland lodge with the benefit of modern-day building technology to create extremely comfortable and well-appointed accommodation. Quirky design features have been included in the renovations with secret doors disguised as bookcases providing the ground and first floor access to the annexe.
The focal point of the house is the warm and welcoming dining kitchen with its open arch to the sitting room, while the drawing room and dining room provide space for formal entertaining. The first floor bedrooms are bright and spacious and the master bedroom with its adjacent luxury bathroom is in a separate wing. The annexe has accommodation of a similar standard and can be used as a holiday let, supplementary or staff accommodation.
The generous grounds at Langwell Lodge provide shelter and amenity with generous lawns around the house, a grass paddock, a belt of mature trees and duck flighting pond while the unspoilt setting allows for frequent sightings of rare native wildlife. The River Oykel is just a short walk from the house and fishing is available on this and other salmon rivers in the area.
