"If you have a passion for wildlife and the great outdoors, you'll love it here"
A Warm Welcome To Seafield Farm
We are currently unable to accommodate visitors other than key workers who require accommodation in the area due to the lockdown restrictions which are in place at the moment.
Because of the uncertainty around Covid restrictions and guidelines, you can book without paying a deposit, with full payment due 2 days before arrival assuming it is possible to travel. There are no penalties for cancellation due to circumstances beyond anyone's control. Bookings are spaced out to ensure cottages can be properly cleaned and aired between guests. This will continue in 2021. Start and end dates of bookings are variable. This will reduce the number of weeks available. The minimum booking will be 7 days but you will be will be able to add any number of extra days to your stay, when pre-existing bookings allow.
Kirkland is either fully booked or unavailable due to lockdown between now and early November. Byre Cottage is available for bookings from May onwards (assuming we are allowed to open then). Stable Cottage is not currently open for bookings this year - the calendar will be updated when it is available.
Please see the information page for our terms and conditions and additional information related to Covid19.
More than ever in these uncertain times, 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, make simple furniture. We 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.
Byre Cottage sleeps 2 and Stable Cottage sleeps 2 - in one or two bedrooms. One additional guest may be accommodated 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.
