What is it about soaking in a wonderful hot tub looking out onto stunning views, that puts it right up there on the holiday wish list?
Well since holidays should be a break from the norm, and lazing in a luxurious hot tub, indulging in a glass of bubbly and feeling like time has no meaning, is definitely a break from the norm, then the desire for cottages and lodges with hot tubs is understandable.
Hill Cottage, featured above, takes this to a new level by providing two chic baths, one of which is outdoors on the secluded patio area overlooking the sea. Both baths accommodate two people and offer uninterrupted views of sea loch and mountain.
Hill cottage is one of two luxury cottages designed for couples at Croft 103, set in Durness in Sutherland on the North West tip of Great Britain. This wild, remote and beautiful expanse of Cape Wrath enjoys one of the most dramatic landscapes in Europe. An abundance of wildlife and vast open space creates an overwhelming experience.
The cottage features a stunning fan-shaped design, and perfectly complements the contours of the surrounding glacial landscape. A sense of space, light and tranquility flood the apartment from morning to nightfall.
Shore Cottage (pictured above), is a bold, barrel-shaped building and is the other Croft 103 cottage. As with Hill Cottage, the spectacular, constantly changing views of sea, sky and mountain seen from the expanse of windows, provides the continuity of outside to inside.
Again the choice of bathing indoors or outdoors allows you to indulge in sensuous luxury at the very heart of wilderness. This is eco-luxury tourism at it’s best – sustainable buildings built with natural materials using renewable energy and in keeping with their location.
