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.
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.
Built on several levels with stone walls throughout, the secluded gardens
eventually blend into the Glentress forest at the rear.
The upper level is a great place to relax of an evening, drink in the view and
watch the sun go down.
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 is cosy, comfortable, and features an exposed
whinstone wall from the original Toll House.
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.
The luxury comes from a beautiful custom-made Italian leather sofa, which also
converts into a bed if needed.
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
Eshiels Toll sleeps 2 people in the main double bedroom, 3 people in the
second bedroom and 2 extra people can also be
