Arle Lodge holiday accommodation on the Isle of Mull
Arle Lodge is a very vegan friendly B&B on the beautiful Isle of Mull, Scotland.
This lovely holiday accommodation is suitable for couples, families and groups of up to 31. Walkers, cyclists and bikers are all welcome.
This is a lovely accommodation for everyone but its also very welcoming to those who choose to follow a vegan lifestyle.
With your reservation you will get all the comforts of a bed and breakfast with the convenience of self catering facilities too.
When you stay at Arle Lodge you are also welcome to meet and cuddle the lovely rescue animals who live there too.
I asked the owner Hannah to tell me more about herself and Arle Lodge.
“My name is Hannah Morris and I am 31. Originally from Essex, I came to the Scottish Island of Mull on holiday at the age of 15, I fell in love with the stunning landscape and refused to leave. Luckily my amazing parents agreed to join me. I have been running my photography business ‘Hannah Morris Photography’ ever since.Visit Hannah Morris on Youtube
My family and I have also been lovingly building up and running my vegan friendly B&B and self catering accommodation ‘Arle Lodge’ for the last 14 years. Between my partner Alan, my parents Pat and Hazel, my partners mother Tina, and myself, we make a pretty good team.
We currently have 2 dogs, 3 rescue sheep and 3 rescue cats, and I love them all dearly. But these figures change all the time. Each soul that passes though leaves an imprint on our hearts and enriches our lives.
Mull is also known for it’s amazing wildlife and highland cows!
I encourage our guests to sit down and cuddle our rescue animals and see how loving and intelligent so called ‘farm animals’ can be.
The lodge has breathtaking views of the sea and mountains from the lounge and kitchen as well as some of the bedrooms.
If any vegans would like to know where the most vegan friendly restaurants are, or where to buy certain items such as vegan wine, I am on site during office open hours and can offer my advice.
We have a self catering kitchen so you can cook your own meals. We have fridges and food storage boxes.
Sadly we can’t permit pets. We welcome children age 4+
I have been a vegan animal rights activist for over 3.5 years, regularly attending and hosting activist events in Glasgow and Oban. I volunteer with ‘The Earthlings Experience Scotland’, ‘Save Movement Scotland’ and ‘Go Vegan Scotland’. I also manage the facebook group pages:
This year I hope we will be getting more and more vegan guests. Please do tell your friends about us. We look forward to welcoming you on Mull.
