Three stars!

B&B 3 STAR

 

And here they are!

Yesterday we had a ‘secret visitor’ in our B and B- from visit Scotland. We knew that we would get a visit at some point, and we had our suspicions about this particular guest (which made for some nervous moments!)

As it happens, she said lots of lovely things about our service, the rooms and the general feel of our B and B, and more crucially, awarded us three stars!

Three stars signifies a B and B of ‘a very good standard’. Realistically, we will not meet the criteria for 4 stars because of our location, the lack of lighting on the driveway and the fact that our rooms are within a family home. Overall, we are delighted with the three stars, particularly so early into our trading.

So if you would like to have a stay within our three star B and B, taking in the wonderful views, and perhaps trying out some pottery as part of your stay- take a look at our website!

It feels like a big step forward!

Over the past few months I have been working hard on getting the house ready to serve as place of hospitality- a guest house, retreat centre, pottery, etc. Thanks to my mate Andy Prosser’s work on our website, we can now take on line bookings for our B and B rooms! Or you can just contact us direct.

We have two main rooms- a double room and a family room (2 plus 2.) Both are en suite, and costs are as follows;

Double room £70 a night for double occupancy, £45 for single Occupancy.

Family room £70 for double, £45 for single. Kids under 12 free, over 12 add £10 per child per night.

We also have an adjoining single bedroom that is available as an add on booking only as the occupant will share the en suite shower facilities in one of the other rooms. This might be suitable for older kids or for friends travelling together. This costs £25 per night.

If you are thinking of making time for yourself- to be quiet, to be creative or to be closer to the wild country- then please come and see us!

New name, new logo…

We are really pleased with the new logo for our wee collection of micro enterprises.

We have been developing bed and breakfast rooms, self catering accommodation, retreats, crafts and craft workshops, pottery and more over the last few months. We needed something to tie it all together. At first we used the house name (Sgath an Tighe, meaning ‘shelter of the house’ or ‘house of shelter’) but increasingly we thought that it might confuse slightly as people cannot pronounce or spell it!

Eventually we came up with ‘Recreate’ as a name- with all its implications for creation, creativity, starting again, and making use of recycled materials.

Hence our business website will be transitioning to branding around the new name, and will use a new address of www.recreate-argyll.co.uk

Here is the art work, by Simon Jones, who we would highly recommend to others on the look out for some branding/graphic design work.
