The Owner Says
This is basic loft space above the barn! It is a simple, rustic loft with 2 rooms and a tiny loo. It has a kitchen and dining room with wood-burning stove, dormer window snug and one double bedroom. The loo has no shower which is unusual and why I have priced it so. There are 4 showers downstairs via the main door and balcony only a 5 second walk, these are shared with the campers and glampers. Step out onto the south facing balcony giving you fantastic views of the sea. It is Ideal for couples on an adventures! There is also a small double in the living / kitchen area for extra guests.
We have a honesty Shop and potted herb garden organic wholefoods, fresh eggs, bread, in season organic produce from the farm. Please help yourself to the herbs and salad leaves that we have planted for you, there is a watering can so if the plants look thirsty please feel free to help us water them!
The Owner SaysWheems Organic Farm is an ecological and organic 6 hectare horticulture and animal smallholding, producing organic food for a local market. Wheems farm buildings are 200 years old and have been renovated using local, traditional and sustainable materials. Wheems farmland has been sensitively landscaped with areas set aside for conservation, areas carved out with stone dyke walling, and areas of tree planting.
BBQs and small campfires allowed. There are 2 showers and 3 toilets in a wooden building by the bothy. The brand new campers' kitchen has 2 small electric cookers and kettle with lovely wooden surfaces, including tables, chairs and a little lawn with a stone bench. They also have a washing machine, large fridge, freezer and a hairdryer, plus books and games for the kids. Each bothy is provided with bedding (optional), a heater, water container, rechargeable lamp and hot water bottles. The yurt is more lavishly furnished, with a custom made wooden floor, beds, bedding, blankets, towels, candles, lamps, a log fire and firewood for your stay. Islay can provide you with a camping stove for the yurt if you would rather this than using the shared kitchen.
