Description from owner

Description

The village Post Office for almost 100 years, the property has recently been re modelled as a studio apartment for couples.

Conveniently situated on the shore road, with views from the large front window to Loch Long, and the Clyde Estuary, which is often busy with maritime traffic including submarines, merchant ships and cruise liners.

The space has been designed to provide comfortable accommodation for a relaxing holiday.

To the front is the bright and airy living / sleeping area.Furniture includes 2 reclining swivel easy chairs, a wooden dining table,a wardrobe ,a double bed with comfortable SIlent Night mattress and quality Sanderson bedding.

Additionally there is a wall mounted Dimplex Optiflame fire, wall mounted 32" flat screen Smart TV, free Netflix, free unlimited WIFI.

To the rear of the property is the kitchen, and shower room with double shower, toilet, basin,heated towel rail and recess for storage.

The kitchen has a sink, worktop space and ample cupboards. Electrical goods include ceramic hob with extractor,and single fan oven below, toaster, kettle, microwave oven with grill, and dishwasher. The fridge / freezer is under the counter, with a smaller fridge section to give more freezer space than the usual small 'Icebox'.

Heating in the studio is via electric panel heaters, a heated towel rail, and the Optiflame fire.

There is a door to the front, with storm porch for storage of coats and footwear. The door from the kitchen opens into the internal passageway, suitable for safe storage of bikes or fishing rods for example. A door to the back yard gives access to the outbuildings which house the washing machine and tumble drier.

Within the village is the Victorian Pier, free to access and great for fishing, and a wee Church bric a brac shop, as well as the Gallery / Fairtrade coffee shop great for drinks, snacks and light meals.. On the edge of the village is Quadmania, who offer a variety of outdoor activities including Quad biking and archery. Lots of walks into the hills or along the shore start right outside the front door.A great golf course is close by in the neighbouring village of Strone and the seaside town of Dunoon is a few miles away.

Getting around

As an area of relatively small settlements surrounded by countryside, the easiest way to explore is by car, motorcycle or bicycle. The are also many walks and trails, and regular bus services serve villages and towns in the area.Taxi services are mainly used for relatively short journeys around the main settlement of Dunoon. Many of our guests use a combination of methods to get around... a bus to a beauty spot and then a pleasant walk home. How about bringing your bike, driving a little further afield and then explore a new area by cycle before driving back to Blairmore.

Interaction with guest

We will usually only see you when we welcome you to Blairmore and tell you about the facilities and answer any questions you may have. We will then leave you to settle in, as we realize that our guests have been traveling and want to start their holiday. We then usually send an email to guests later in the week to check all is okay, although we can be contacted any time if you need us during your stay. We also have a good friend in the village who is a point of contact if required, and we ask you drop the keys through her letter box when your holiday is over.

Argyll has some of the most beautiful scenery we have ever seen .

“Stunning location”

Reviewed 4 Aug 2016

The property is very comfortable and for a studio apartment more than adequate for a short or long stay we rented for 11 nights ,we never tired of looking out over the ever changing view . I read the previous reviews before going which it meets all the previous reviews positive comments. The area around here is stunning and sitting by loch eck a short drive away is stunning with excellent beaches for barbecues etc . Car isn't essential but is an advantage to tour this area. We concluded our stay with a trip on the paddle steamer Waverley which picks you up at the pier outside the property well worth it . Overall this is a good value for money property in a stunning location with everything you may need . I have recommended to family members which says a lot . Thanks

Owner's reply: Thankyou for reviewing The Old Post Office, we are pleased you had a good holiday, loved the area & have kindly recommended us to your family.

“Did the Trick”

Reviewed 15 Jul 2016

Found this awesome place by accident & so glad I did. With everything & more you would need for a relaxing holiday or a more adventurous one in & around The Old Post Office it caters for the sole traveler or couple. With views to die for from outside your window to any distance you want to travel and Dunoon a short distance away if you want to eat out or get a carryout this place caters for it all. Stephen was there to meet me & have to say from the time of the enquiry to the day of arrival he was very pleasant & professional. Hope to go back again & see more of the awesome scenery.

Owner's reply: Hi Graeme, thankyou for holidaying at the Old Post Office and we are pleased you had a good time exploring the area and enjoying the wonderful scenery. Thanks for the great review, best wishes, and we hope to see you again.

“The perfect home away from home”

Reviewed 9 Jun 2014

This lovely little flat sitting on the water front at Blairmore was the ideal holiday flat - simply decorated, comfortable bed, great view, excellent kitchen, clothes washer and drier, great shower in bathroom. All the amenities you would wish for at a very reasonable cost. We stayed for ten days and found it easy to travel from Blairmore to surrounding areas including Glasgow, Oban and Kintyre. If you have no car, the bus stop is just across the road. The t-room nearby served the best fruit scones around and the coffee is excellent. We will definitely use this holiday flat again and again.

Owner's reply: Thank you for your review, we are pleased you had a lovely time and look forward to your return visit.
