Eshiels Toll in detail

Eshiels Toll is a delightful traditional detached cottage originally built in 1773 as a Toll House and then sympathetically extended at ground level to add 2 bedrooms, a dining room and a kitchen.

Eshiels Toll House

Set in a mature south facing cottage style garden with a gentle stream flowing through, the cottage also offers plenty of parking on the front driveway.

The garden

Built on several levels with stone walls throughout, the secluded gardens eventually blend into the Glentress forest at the rear.

The garden

The upper level is a great place to relax of an evening, drink in the view and watch the sun go down.

Patio and shed with ample room for bikes

The patio area gives plenty of shade by the stream and is also great spot for washing down muddy bikes, muddy pets, and muddy children!

The Lounge

The lounge is cosy, comfortable, and features an exposed whinstone wall from the original Toll House.

The lounge

The warmth comes from a working solid fuel burning stove that sits on a slate hearth in a nook that peaks through to the dining room.

Custom-made Italian leather sofa

The luxury comes from a beautiful custom-made Italian leather sofa, which also converts into a bed if needed.

The Dining Room

The Dining Room also gets the benefit of the stove and fireplace and features a large oak dining table and chairs with more than enough room for six places.

The Dining Room

The Main Bedroom

Eshiels Toll sleeps 2 people in the main double bedroom, 3 people in the second bedroom and 2 extra people can also be accommodated on the sofa bed in the lounge.
