Three Glens House

Tel: 01848 200 589

The full-height glazing in this farmhouse’s living space allows jaw-dropping views across the countryside to where the three glens of Craigdarroch, Dalwhat and Castlefairn converge.

The vast, main glass doors open electronically for access to the elevated outdoor decked balcony, where you admire Mother Nature on classy garden furniture. Watch out for buzzards, badgers, deer, hares, squirrels and oyster catchers as you unwind here. Then take a short stroll (and maybe a picnic) over to a seven-acre Victorian-era lake with pontoon and boats.

In shaping this enchanting environment, 286 railway sleepers were used for timber frames; 500 tons of stone were collected from local fields to build stunning walls; and 2,000 fleeces were taken from local Blackface sheep for wall insulation.

Sharing Three Glens (although unless on duty, you’d never know it) are the attentive live-in staff. Their sole aim is to ensure all visitors receive a ski-chalet-style premier service with complete privacy to entertain. Enhancing your stay considerably, this service embraces cooking meals, preparing picnics/lunches and suggesting local leisure options to suit your preferences. Rest assured, your chef will be used to creating higher-end cuisine not pub grub.
