I have a passion for sustainable and in particular straw bale building. Inspired by attending courses run by Straw Works Ltd (http://www.strawworks.co.uk/) I’d now like to put my straw bale building skills to the test on a whole building. Starting in the spring of 2016 I will build the first of two straw bale lodges which will each accommodate a family of four in one open plan living space. The idea is not to repeat the luxury and spaciousness of Cow Sheds 1 & 2 but to create a more indoor /outdoor living space for a family looking for a slightly upgraded 'glamping' experience with a difference.
Both lodges will offer basic kitchen and bathroom facilities, a small lounge area with wood burning stove, a double bed and two single beds on a mezzanine floor. The land around each lodge will be landscaped to give plenty of private space for each family to enjoy.
Lettoch Beag is the adjoining property to Lettoch Farmhouse. We will be spending the winter of 2014/15 redeveloping it into a luxury self-catering property to compliment The Cow Shed and Cow Shed 2.
The property enjoys spectacular south west views down Glen Garry and being in our elevated position, to the hillside across the valley. It has a large, high ceiling open plan living / dining space with a connected kitchen, a small study and two double bedrooms, one of which is en-suite.
We will be keeping up to date with progress on our Facebook page at the following address:
Just about the very best we have stayed in.
This was a once in a lifetime trip for us and we were blessed to have found such a wonderful place to stay.
Every detail is taken care of and we felt welcome from the moment we arrived.
So many interesting visitor attractions in the area. Beautiful walks, great choice of eateries. We will be back.
The Cow Shed is a revelation and the work that Steve & Kirsty (not forgetting Steve’s Dad) have put into the renovation has created superb accommodation.
A perfect weeks stay at The Cow Shed, a real home-from-home.
The best we have stayed in. Superb cottage.
Being up here with you beside us to give us advice & ideas has been quite amazing.
What an amazing cottage! Thanks for making us feel very welcome. We've had the perfect stay and loved everything about The Cowshed.
Very comfortable stay for our second visit to The Cow Shed...... Cow Shed 2 looks amazing Steve. We’ll recommend it to friends and family and hopefully see you next year.
It’s very hard to leave. Your place is so beautiful. The perfect spot from which to head out to new adventures each day.
