About Yardarm Cottage
A Modern Home in Portnahaven next to the Atlantic Ocean
Yardarm Cottage is brand new to Portnahaven. Our renovations finished in April 2019 and we’re now open for summer! Our spacious, traditional stone cottage is finished to a modern standard and fully equipped to ensure a relaxing time on Islay. With a large kitchen and two lounge areas there is plenty of space to relax, and with three generous ensuites and a small downstairs loo you’ll enjoy privacy whilst sharing with friends and family.
Portnahaven is a special place. Atlantic Islay at its wild best. Standing at our front door you look out over the Atlantic to Ireland.
Our first cozy lounge area has a sofa and lounge chair with fireplace, books, magazines and stereo system.
Kitchen & Dining
The kitchen is a light and airy space, fully equipped with a nespresso machine, microwave, two ovens and other kitchen essentials so guests will feel at home.
2 King size Ensuite Bedrooms
Upstairs, three good sized bedrooms, 2 kings and 1 twin are comfortable, warm and cozy, ensuring a great night’s sleep.
The Twin Bedroom is at the back of the house and gives access to a fabulous bathroom.
All bathrooms are generous ensuites, 2 with walk in showers and 1 with a fabulous Japanese-style soaking tub large enough for 2.
Washer & Dryer
Pub around the corner
An Tigh Seinnse is the local pub round the corner serving excellent meals. Further away restaurants can be found in Port Charlotte at the Port Mor Campsite and the Port Charlotte and Lochindaal Hotels.
Be sure to take a walk down past the pub to the public footpath on the cliffs – the best place for sunset pix and perfect for a wee dram or a glass of wine.
15 minutes away is the neighbouring village of Port Charlotte with its two pubs, shop and restaurants.
The seafood platter from An Tigh Seinnse, the pub around the corner, is an absolute must. Fresh from the boats in the harbour, it’s delicious and portions are very generous. Be sure to order 24 hours in advance.
Currie Sands, Portnahaven’s local beach is accessible via a beautiful coastal cliff walk. Spectacular in all weathers.
Bruichladdich distillery is a 20 minute drive away along one of Islay’s most spectacular coastal roads.
Our property managers can advise you on bespoke whisky tours for those who do not wish to drive to the distilleries and we ourselves provide whisky tours to Islay as well. For more info visit www.yardarmtours.com
