THE BIG HOUSE

The Big House includes 4 bedrooms, sleeping up to 8 people with space for 2 additional small children in the Giogha attic bedroom suite on a pull down sofa – perfect for large gatherings. The space is ultra-modern, thoughtfully designed and finished to the highest standard whilst maintaining a sense of traditional Islay throughout.

Very comfortable cottage, well equipped and spacious. Nice decor. Ample parking. Good position overlooking bay and next to supermarket. Bathrooms might benefit from an update. Overall a great place to stay.

The Big House is just perfect for a very comfortable relaxing holiday . It is beautifully appointed and maintained with lots of lovely special touches.
The location is also perfect and we all really enjoyed our stay there. Weather was even good enough for a dip in the sea !
Hope to return to Islay when Scotland is once again covid free. Many thanks .

We are a family of four, with teenage kids, and The Big House was absolutely perfect for our week's stay.
Overall there was a huge amount of space, really well designed and extended - the kitchen/ dining area is brilliant for everyone - and it is all really well appointed. Modern and traditional. Very comfortable.

The kitchen equipment provided is everything you'll ever need. And more.
The living areas have great audio and TV arrangements, and the wifi was good throughout the house.
There are plenty of bathrooms; even a great shower room on the ground floor for when you come in dirty/ cold/ both.

On top of this, the service from both Alison in Port Ellen and Allan on the phone was phenomenal. Our visit co-incided with bad weather and related travel problems but Alison and Allan were just amazing in helping us out - nothing was too much trouble. And they did this twice in one week. Just brilliant.

We would definitely stay again.

Wir haben in "The Big House" Anfang Dezember 2019 mit 8 erwachsenen Personen eine traumhafte Woche verbracht. Das Haus ist fantastisch und wurde mit viel Liebe zum Detail eingerichtet. Wir haben uns von Anfang an wohlgefühlt. Es fehlt an nichts. Vor allem die Küche ist groß und exklusiv ausgestattet. Die Lage direkt an der Bucht von Port Ellen haben wir sehr genossen.
"The big House" wird auf Islay immer unsere erste Wahl sein. Unbedingte Weiterempfehlung!

We often book self catering properties in Scotland at least once a year and in over a decade have never stayed anywhere better than Leodamais, with it being one of the best three encountered.

The house is big and spacious and kept immaculately clean. The bathrobes and slippers and toiletries were much appreciated as was the superbly equipped kitchen which has every kind of kitchen aid and utensil from food mixer to bread tins. A well provisioned kitchen is important when rainy days encourage us to stay indoors and enjoy a bit of relaxed cooking and baking.

The location of the house is ideal with it being situated on the bay front of Port Ellen. A Co-Op is a stones throw away which is useful for nights when eating in, and the Port Ellen Hotel and Sea Salt restaurant further along the road make for excellent options when eating out. Also, when leaving Islay from Port Ellen there is no need to plan time for driving to the terminal because it is just around the bay and can be seen (and heard !) from the house.

During our week on Islay the weather was unseasonably good and so every hour of every day was spent outside walking/cycling/fishing/distillerying, which was a bonus. However, the odd day of relaxing around the house just reading and cooking/baking would have been welcome nonetheless had the weather been more typically ‘Scottish’, such was the comfort of the place. With this being Scotland this is an important point to take into consideration.

The Wi-Fi, TV, i-pad music centre etc all worked perfectly and kept the children entertained in the gaps between eating and sleeping and adventuring.

Our contact with the owners and the housekeeper showed them both to be helpful and keen to ensure our stay was comfortable.

Hopefully the house will be maintained to this very high standard and people will take care and look after the accommodation when staying.

We had a brill week staying at The Big House. The house was immaculate, every detail and more had been thought of. The house was very well equipped and the extra touches were most thoughtful and gratefully received. We had a couple of teething issues which Alison resolved quickly, efficiently and well. She is a real asset and credit to Leodamis! The House was very well located and the kids just loved playing on the beach in front of the house, befriending a few local families and their dogs! Overall we had a fantastic holiday and stay at the Big House and would most definitely recommend it to anyone wishing to stay on Islay! Thanks!
