Inside our luxury Eco House

The house combines the latest in eco-technology such as triple-glazed windows, with centuries-old wisdom such as the Austrian Kachelofen: a giant clay wood-fired oven covered in lime plaster created by an award-winning ceramic artist. The stunning, central feature of the living area, this oven acts like a giant storage heater and creates an ambient temperature for all rooms.

Rugged dry-stone walls extend from the outside in through the interior. Cow-hide seats, natural tones and diverse textures have been chosen by the interior designer to further enhance the appeal. Another notable feature – should you wish it – is music. Connect to your iphone, our TV or radio and your favourite sounds can come from ceiling speakers in all (or just some) areas of Three Glens – including the decking which becomes a party space as well as a sheltered sun trap.

There are four individual guest rooms on the lower ground floor with exceptionally comfortable double or twin beds. Each room has en suite facilities and a TV with satellite channels. A comfortable study with a reclaimed oak desk is available along with internet access.
