Guests often search for this popular amenity
Very cosy quiet modern two bedroom apartment within an end of a hillside cul-de-sac in Gourock with spectacular sweeping views from the lounge and kitchen over Firth of Clyde, Loch Long, Holy Loch and mountains of Argyll. Very quiet. Both bedrooms face the rear of the building where the countryside starts and the only night time disturbance is likely to be the slight noise of an odd deer venturing into the garden grounds. Recently modernised: new gas combi heating, new beds, new furniture.

The space
Very tranquil location: there are only four flats in the close with quiet neighbours. The entrance to the close is kept private by means of a security entry. The house is located at the very end of a dead end street meaning very little traffic. Both bedrooms face the rear of the building with green countryside outlook and no one overlooking the windows. There is an open green area right next to the side from the building, which could be used for picnics and/or barbecues weather permitting.

The primary maximum amount of guests is FOUR persons. However, a FIFTH person could be accommodated on a folding camp bed in the lounge, if required.

The flat has undergone a substantial modernisation recently and now has a modern gas combi heating system, new beds, new internet service provider and items of new stylish furniture.

Please note that own transport is advisable. Although there is a public bus service at the main road at the bottom of the hill, some walking uphill from the bus is needed, which might be not suitable for young children and/or frail people. Discounted taxi service with a licensed Inverclyde taxi operator/driver could be arranged on request.

The host does believe in maintaining a healthy environment in the flat and keeps the number of soft furnishings to a bare necessary minimum. It means no carpet floor coverings, etc., but it helps to keep dust levels as low as possible. It also means - sorry, strictly no pets.

Where you’ll be

Inverclyde, Scotland, United Kingdom

Inverclyde with its principal towns of Greenock and Gourock boasts plenty of scenic places with spectacular views over water and mountains. Within walking distance from the apartment, there is Gourock-Dunoon ferry offering the fastest route to Argyll from Inverclyde. From Dunoon it is possible to explore the unspoilt mountainous scenery with empty roads of the Cowal peninsula (Scotland’s best kept secret) and further afield into Argyll and Highlands proper - all offering spectacular scenery with mountains, lochs and sea fiords. A few miles south at Wemyss Bay, there is a ferry service linking the mainland with the scenic Isle of Bute. Further a few miles south there is Largs - a sea resort popular with day trippers from Glasgow and surrounding areas. From Largs it takes only seven minutes by a frequent ferry to cross onto the picturesque Cumbrae island.

There are several medieval castles and historic mansions within the surrounding areas dotted with pretty villages, such as Inverkip, Wemyss Bay, Skelmorlie and Kilmalcolm. During summer there is an open air swimming pool filled with sea water operating on the sea front in Gourock - one of only four of its kind in the UK. For those with a keen sailing interest, Inverkip Marina offering some of the best sailing in the West of Scotland is located only a few miles south from the apartment.

For young kids, Funworld (on the Gourock/Greenock border) offers extensive play options and within the same building Elev8 and Laser Matrix offer entertainment for older youngsters. The huge Seafront sport complex in Greenock provides an extensive range of sport entertainment aimed at every age: an aqua park, an ice rink, badminton courts etc.

Within a few minutes car ride it is possible to find some good restaurants: the one at the Inverkip hotel, The Chartroom - also in Inverkip, the Cafe Continental - in Gourock, The Exchange - in Greenock, etc - the list is extensive. All normal takeaway places are also available in Gourock.

For city lovers, Glasgow with its endless possibilities for shopping, culture and nightlife is only 30 miles to the east.
