Toad Hall Sleeps 11+cot





Atmospheric and beautiful: Toad Hall lies in the countryside near Swilland village in Suffolk Coastal District.  This is a truly rural area with lots of farming and little traffic on narrow lanes.  The nearby ancient town of Woodbridge on the River Deben has many fine restaurants, antique and book shops. The area is full of villages with good pubs, sites of interest (we particularly enjoyed Sutton Hoo and the Mechanical Music Museum) and riding, golf, fishing etc.     

Three beautiful houses for getting together with family or friends in a paradise for walking, fishing and stalking or just exploring. Corporate lets also popular.  The Glencarron Estate is in Wester Ross, a very beautiful area in the Scottish Highlands.  The Estate is in the west of the central Highlands about 50 miles west of Inverness, having easy access to the beaches on the west coast and the sites and activities (including golf and distillaries) in both the west and east.  The estate is ideal for Munro baggers, with 3 Munros (mountains or hills over 3,000 ft.) on the estate and 8 others within 10 miles.  There is salmon, brown trout and sea trout fishing on 3km of the River Carron and a large accessible Loch and also trout and char fishing on two hill lochs on the Estate.  A boat is available by arrangement.  Plentiful stag and hind stalking with the estate stalker is available in season. Clay pigeon shooting may also be arranged. Under one hour's drive from Inverness, 3 hours from Aberdeen and 4 hours from Edinburgh, with many value flights from London Heathrow or Gatwick, Luton, Bristol etc. to these cities); local shops are in the villages of Achnasheen and Lochcarron.  Please see the end of this page for Scottish links.

In 2 acres of gardens, this spacious Grade II listed C16 timber framed house, complete with inglenook fireplace, accommodates 11 comfortably in 6 bedrooms for weeks or short breaks.  The house is well-equipped with all modern conveniences among a wealth of exposed timbers. An excellent good food pub with outside seating is within 15 minutes walking distance. A very good riding stable is just along the lane.


ACCOMMODATION: Three double, two twin and one single bedroom, three bathroom/shower rooms (one en suite), large farmhouse style kitchen with dishwasher etc. summer  sitting room, winter sitting room with log burning stove (both with TV+DVD), games room with table tennis.

No shooting, fishing or other hunting or trapping of any kind is permitted on the Glencarron and Glenuaig Estate without the express written permission of the owners.


You may not bring firearms or other weapons onto the estate without the express written permission of the owner and you will be required to ask the stalker to put firearms in a gun cabinet on arrival and when not in use. Use of your own firearms will be at the discretion of the Estate Stalker.


All shooting activities are on condition that you wear ear protectors – please ask the stalker for these if you do not have any – and observe gun safety.


No off road driving is permitted on the Estate.


All fishing is strictly by fly and all salmon and sea trout are strictly on a catch and release basis.  The details of all catches must be faithfully reported to the estate stalker at East Cottage.  We reserve the right to require you not to fish further on the estate waters if we consider that you are abusing the facilities or not giving due consideration to others legitimately fishing on the estate.  For those hiring a property on the estate there is no further charge for fishing providing that you abide by these Estate Rules and inform us in writing that you are bringing a rod.


Use of the row boat must be by prior arrangement and is entirely at your own risk and on condition that you act responsibly, conduct your own risk assessment before you begin, supervise all children and you all wear appropriate buoyancy aids (there are some hanging in Glencarron Lodge gun room but I cannot guarantee the numbers and sizes of them so you should bring your own if you have them and want to be sure to have the appropriate sizes). The Loch can have strong currents so that a grown man may not be able to row across it and it is very deep in places.


It is a condition of your hiring of property on the estate and of permission for any activity whatsoever that you do on the estate, that you obtain the owner’s written permission for the activity, you undertake a full risk assessment of doing any activity and take all reasonable precautions to remove all possible risks to yourselves, other people, livestock, the land and all flora and fauna associated with it and the property and any other risk whatsoever.  You do such activities entirely at your own risk.

For all activities, children under sixteen must be accompanied by sufficient adult parents or carers (over 21 years of age) to look after them and take responsibility for them.  It is at the stalker’s discretion to refuse to take groups out whose composition he considers poses an unacceptable risk.





There is plenty to do and see in the area.  I can tell you about golf courses, visits to the woollen mill, distilleries, beaches, restaurants, pubs and local fresh food suppliers, etc,. or even a two/three piece Ceilidh band.  Please ask me and see also the links below.  Below are the wildlife and sporting activities usually available on the Estate.


PHOTO STALKING OR NATURE SPOTTING WALKS: (All year round)  Wild life on the estate includes resident eagles, red grouse, ptarmigan, snipe, woodcock, mountain hare, pine martens, otters, badgers, foxes, red and roe deer and moles (!) who live at 2000 feet.  But there is no guarantee that you will see any of these.  For a fee of £90 for the day the stalker would take you out on to the hills and get you as close as possible to deer to photograph them.  It is best to limit the size of your stalking group to about 6 people.  Our stalkers have been working on the estate for many years between them and know it very well indeed and are expert at getting close to deer. The estate is rugged and you do need to be quite fit. You take your own photographic equipment.  In addition to the fee the stalker appreciates a gratuity of say around £20 for a successful day.  It is important not to wear too dark, light or bright clothes when stalking.  Greens and browns blend in with the hill best – you should also not wear clothes which are too noisy.  If this does interest you, you should arrange it with me in advance please. You will need walking boots or wellingtons.


CLAY PIGEON SHOOTING: The cost of clay pigeon shooting is £40 per group for a couple of hours, for however many of you wish to do it, inclusive of tuition from our stalker, gun, trap and ear protectors supplied plus the cost of clays and cartridges (50 clays and cartridges currently costs £25)   In addition to this the stalker appreciates a gratuity, say £20 or £25 for the morning.


FISHING: (Salmon and Sea trout: 11th February to 15th October but see below; Brown trout: 15th March to 6th October. – In recent years these seasons have been extended to the end of October.)  There is no charge for fishing for those staying in a property on the estate; others should enquire for day prices. We have a large loch with a boat which you would be welcome to use by prior arrangement on condition that you wear buoyancy aids (there are some hanging in Glencarron Lodge gun room but I cannot guarantee sizes or numbers so please supply your own if you want to be sure to have sufficient)and make a full risk assessment and mittigate all risks as far as possible and about three miles of spate river, the Carron, and we catch trout, salmon and brown trout.  In the last few seasons, the best salmon caught on our stretch of river was 20 lbs.  Trout and sea trout up to 6.5lbs are caught in the Loch.  Over 200 salmon and the same number of sea trout were caught in each recent season on the entire Carron system.  The fishing is marginally better in July and later in the summer and autumn, although for salmon the level of the river is really what counts.  There are also two hill lochs which have brown trout and char and are, respectively, about an hour's walk from Glencarron Lodge and two hours walk from Glenuaig Lodge into the estate.  The stalker who lives on the estate would be happy to help you identify the good spots, or to ghillie for you, other estate work and guests permitting.  If you would like him to ghillie for you for a day the cost would be £90 or £50 for a morning and in addition to this he would appreciate a gratuity of say £25 to £30 for a successful outing.  Please arrange fishing with us before your stay.  We have two rods and tackle available for hire at £10 a day, if you are not bringing your own – please book this with us before your stay.  Fishing on beats nearer the sea may also be arranged. We operate a strict catch and release policy for salmon and sea trout and fishing is strictly fly only (although we are more relaxed for children under 11).  Please let us know if you intend to bring a rod.  It is a condition of fishing on the estate that you report the details of all catches to the Estate Stalker at East Cottage.


STAG STALKING (1st July to 20th October):  The price for stalking a stag, with stalker, rifle, ammunition, etc inclusive, is £440 inclusive of VAT for those taking a property on the Estate.  In the rare event that the stalker does not take the client within shooting range of a stag, the price for the day out is £150.  The form is to give the stalker a gratuity for a successful day in the order of £30 - £50 per gun.  The estate is rugged and you do need to be quite fit.  You would also have to help the stalker drag the beasts off the hill as far as the Argocat.  (If you wanted a ghillie to help drag beasts off the hill, this would cost another £140 per day; you need to book this in advance).   The venison remains the property of the estate.  If you would like to take the antlers home, we will arrange for the stalker to cut and clean them for a fee of £25.  Prior to going on the hill the stalker will take the client to a target to check that the client can hit a six inch circle at approximately 100 yards.  The choice of stag to kill is entirely at the discretion of the stalker.  It may be possible to shoot more than one stag in a day if you wish; thus two guns may go out together with the stalker and up to two others may accompany them.  In October it may be possible to have a second stalking party out on the hills.  Please enquire if you wish us to arrange this.


HIND STALKING (21st October to 15th February): The cost of hind stalking for those staying on the estate is £170 per day for one gun and £210 per day for two guns (and up to another two persons walking along) with one stalker.  For hind stalking, if you want a second stalker so you have two parties out on the hill there is a charge of £210 for the second stalker.  The venison remains the property of the Estate. We supply the guns and ammunition.  The stalker takes the guns to the target prior to going on the hill to check that they can hit a six inch circle at about 100 yards.  The form is at your discretion to give the stalker a gratuity for a successful day in the order of £30 - £50 per gun.  The estate is rugged and you do need to be quite fit.  You would also have to help the stalker drag the beasts off the hill as far as the Argocat.  (If you wanted a ghillie to help drag beasts off the hill, this would cost another £140 per day; you need to book this in advance).
