"If you have a passion for wildlife and the great outdoors, you'll love it here"

A Warm Welcome To Seafield Farm

We are advised that self catering accommodation can open again from 3 July 2020.  Kirkland is currently fully booked through until November.  There will be limited availability in Byre and Stable Cottages and we are no longer taking any bookings for less than one week.  We aim to have only one of the two cottages occupied at any time until further notice.  Byre Cottage is now open for online bookings beginning 1 August onwards. Start days are Friday, Saturday or Sunday and we will be aiming to have no same day changeovers.  Please phone or email for other up to date availability and information.

We will continue to return deposits to any of our guests who wish to cancel because they are unable or unwilling to travel at this time.

Where existing bookings mean same day changeovers, check in time is now 4.30 pm onwards and check out time is 10.00 am. 

A holiday at Seafield Farm Cottages offers the perfect antidote to everyday life. You can unwind, surrounded by breathtaking scenery and enjoy a close connection with nature and the landscape.  Return after a day exploring this beautiful area to a comfortable and welcoming home.  You won't want to leave.

Our holiday homes are on the edge of Knapdale Forest at the head of Loch Sween near the small village of Achnamara. This is a little known part of Argyll but those who find it, return time after time.  We aim to be as environmentally friendly as possible with log fired heating, electricity provided by photovoltaic panels and locally generated hydro electricity, recycling facilties and electric vehicle charging points.

Three generations of our family have been providing holiday accommodation for over a hundred years so we have plenty of experience in providing what our visitors tell us they are looking for in a holiday cottage. As well as hosting visitors we make baskets from home grown willow, produce milled timber and firewood, grow fruit and vegetables, keep a few hens and have several colonies of honeybees.

Seafield Farm Cottages are perfect for adults looking for a well equipped holiday home in peaceful surroundings. This is a great place for walking, wild swimming, cycling, touring, kayaking or simply relaxing and enjoying the fantastic wildlife all around.

Byre and Stable Cottages  Behind the modest exterior of the former byre and stable, you will find surprisingly spacious and comfortable interiors on two floors with the best combination of traditional style and all mod cons. There is a barbecue hut in the garden to satisfy those who love to sit around a real fire.

Byre Cottage sleeps 2 and Stable Cottage sleeps 2 - in one or two bedrooms.  Additional guests may be possible by arrangement at additional charge.

The cottages are in an idyllic setting at the head of Loch Sween, surrounded by fields and ancient oak and hazel woodlands.  Byre and Stable Cottages are child free, pet free and stress free!  Changeover days and lengths of stay are flexible, depending on existing bookings.

Kirkland Lodge is a lovely detached timber holiday home, a mile and a half from Seafield, sitting in its own woodland garden with open views to Loch Sween.  It has a wonderful location and the woodburning stove and fabulous views make it our most popular holiday home, despite being smaller than the cottages.  Small boats and canoes can be launched from the shore, just across the (quiet) road. There is a summerhouse in the garden giving another view of the loch. Kirkland sleeps 2 in one bedroom. Please note that we no longer accept pets in Kirkland.

Kirkland, Byre and Stable are all non-smoking and pet free.

Changeover Day in Kirkland Lodge is Friday from April - October.  Short breaks (minimum 4 days) and flexible arrival and departure dates are available during low season (November - March, excluding Christmas and New Year).

Changeover Day in Byre and Stable Cottages is flexible all year round, depending on other bookings. Short breaks (minimum four days) during low season (November - March, excluding Christmas and New Year).

Free wifi is available in all accommodation.
