Earth House, Laide

Sleeps 4 - WiFi - Pets Welcome

Earth House is an amazing property situated just a short distance from the small village of Laide.  This single storey house is certainly unusual and quite hard to spot, with a turfed roof that blends beautifully with the surrounding landscape. The location offers picturesque views over Gruinard Bay and towards the mountains of Assynt in the north.

Designed and built by the owner over a long period, Earth House offers different from the usual types of properties that are available. The main living area with its sofas and dining area has floor to ceiling windows and offers direct access to the outside patio. Off this area a well equipped kitchen and study area can be found. The property has two en-suite bedrooms, one being a king and the other a twin. A utility area and a cloakroom complete the facilities.

Although being underground the property is warm and welcoming with electric heating throughout. Outside the secluded garden with its shoreline location is an ideal place to sit and relax after a day exploring. Situated close to the North Coast 500 route, the area also offers a broad range of places to visit including Inverewe Gardens and Gairloch.

This is all about location, location, location. Its quite stunning with a deserted shore at your doorstep and a wonderful view over to An Teallach and Coigach. The house itself is quirky with a great view from the lounge. Once we got used to the heaters and the hot water boost it was fine. Its not the most homely place in terms of furnishings. Drying facilities are limited to a line outside and a tumble drier. The owner is very accommodating and helpful.

Earth House is in a wonderfull location directly on the coast where we could watch an abudance of birds togerher with otters and seals most days. It's a very quirky property and the only things that stopped me scoring it as excellent is that the twin bedroom has no view at all as it's a roof light and, whilst the furnising are all very high quaility, only one of the setees was comformatable to relax in in the evnings. That said, we would highly recommend it to family, friends and anyone wanting to connect with nature

Our second stay at Earth House and just as amazing as our first stay. Everything was perfect apart from the weather but can't do much about that.. We will be back!!

We stayed in this remarkable house for a fortnight in May, and what a delight it proved to be. Set in the most wonderful position with outstanding views of the Loch and distant hills. Whilst the surrounding area has plenty for the serious hill climber, it also has plenty for the casual week end walker, a category that we fit into! We had marvellous, varied walks in stunning locations, and at the end of the day, if we had need for a little potter, Laide wood had much to recommend itself. All in all a superb holiday, thoroughly recommended.

What an amazing place - a week spent watching. the ever changing scenery. and local wildlife - yes the otters came out to play! The Earth House is a truly unique holiday experience. with everything you could possibly need - including a warm welcome from the owners. Situated in an area with many beautiful beaches and walks to suit all - especially the dogs! This home offers tranquility and the space to enjoy the natural beauty of the locality.

Earth House is a great place to stay. A real home from home. The view from the house is stunning especially in Autumn and you can lose hours just enjoying it. The property is well equipped and comfortable. The owners are kind and considerate and keep the house looking good. We have stayed in their other property a few times before and have enjoyed both houses equally.

Our stay at Earth House was just fabulous...this is one of the best houses that we have stayed in, the view from the lounge of the sea and mountains was a view that just constantly took our breath away. The house was warm, welcoming and had absolutely everything that we needed. We will definitely be back.... Andrew & Louise
