Home Farm Information

Description

Set in its own little forest near Oban bay, there is something perfectly tranquil about Home Farm – a softness and privacy, a sense of being folded into trees. Part 1600’s, part Arts and Crafts, this is the oldest building in the glen. Fully restored to accommodate ten guests, every room in the house has been individually composed - paintings and prints by local artists on the walls, a bespoke croft bed, open fires. Owls and red-squirrels live in the large, secluded grounds beyond windows flooded with the silver and apricot light that characterises the west Highlands. Drive here, or take the famously vivid train route from Glasgow, past Loch Lomond and up to Oban. The town is just a country walk away, its famous bay dotted with seafood stalls and restaurants, and boats sailing to the rugged and rolling Isle of Mull, and the white-sanded Inner Hebrides beyond. Water and forest, Highland and garden, peace and bustle: Home Farm offers it all.

After hearing that Home Farm had come up for sale In 2019, I decided to move back home after living in Glasgow for 20-plus years. I’d been working as a music festival director and documentary filmmaker. But remembering Home Farm as a young boy - spending happy times here riding horses from its stables in the 1980’s - I was drawn back. The last two years have been busy restoring and renovating the house, which had lapsed into a sorry state. Vowing to retain its original beauty and history I felt a real responsibility given it's one of the oldest and most unusual houses in or around Oban. And now the work is completed in the main house and its wing, we have created something very special. I hope you can come and enjoy it with us.
