Wet and windy few days but wonderful walking anyway - spacious and comfortable apartment to come back to. Open fire had we needed it but warm enough without.
Well equipped comfortable cottage with truly breathtaking views. Great place to stay for families or for groups. Isolated down a one mile track - really away from it all.
CalMac's winter timetable, seasonal storms and livestock sales all meant that travel plans had to be flexible. But it worked out well as the early ferry on Friday gave us a very sunny day at Ardskenish, and the slightly latter ferry the next Friday gave us more time to enjoy another sunny day. In between times there were great Atlantic storms bringing huge breakers on to Colonsay's west coast. Turnigil provided a great haven after long days out in the wild weather - perhaps the only suggestion is to have a few hooks in the downstairs corridor for very wet jackets!
I last visited the island 34 years ago to work at Colonsay House; to stay in Pig's Paradise was a treat... Kitchen was well equipped, bathroom as I expected, open fire lovely to have (& necessary). Just my husband & me stayed so, there was plenty of room & the views out over the beautiful garden were lovely. Staying on an island as beautiful and unique as Colonsay is a privilege & visitors have to allow for how remote it is. Hope to return one day (post Covid) with more family members .
We were lucky enough to be able to get to Colonsay for October half term. This property was the perfect location with beautiful views and a beach in walking distance. Our only issues were the heating wasn’t left at the recommended setting therefore costing more money in the long run. In addition to this the water pressure in the kitchen was poor with very little hot water, other than that we couldn’t fault the property and would highly recommend staying there. We would like to thank Colonsay holidays for another fantastic holiday on a beautiful island we will be back soon.
Lovely characterful accommodation. Lovely views over garden of Colonsay house. Very well equipped for its size. It is up 2 flights of stairs which might be an issue for less mobile. One chair is a bit saggy - mattress too to a lesser extent. Overall really lovely place to stay.
Peaceful cottage with wonderful views. The cottage has everything you need and lovely views from most rooms. Sheep all around and some lovely sunrises
Have visited Colonsay and stayed in Tobaroran many times and it never disappoints. We had a really lovely stay and the Colonsay holiday staff were very helpful.
Harbour cottage is in a great location near the ferry terminal. Very close to the shop, hotel and Pantry cafe/takeaway. The area around the cottage is very quiet and is not overlooked by other properties. The coal fire kept the living room very cosy. The stairs to the upstairs bedroom are, however, very steep and may be a problem for young children or people with restricted mobility.
Very comfortable house. Would be a squeeze for more than 8. Mean with the kindling and dishwasher tablets. Not much in way of cleaning materials, either. Nice sized rooms. Plenty of bathrooms.
We cant think of anything negative to say other than very tiny niggles - the kitchen sink is in an awkward position... (but who cares really) - A decent washing up bowl in a larger sink might have made things easier but you're not going to enlarge the sink just for that... some more sharp knives in the kitchen wold have been useful - in fact that was probably the most annoying thing. Some smaller sharper ones and a decent bread knife that didn't bend. As large houses go i think it is in as good a position as any. We'd go back, if we wanted a house that size. We were sorry to leave. Th...more
One week at Avenue hidden in the woods; very peaceful and cosy cottage with coal stove and central heating. 2 bathrooms and good showers. Shed for bikes. Short 10 -15 mins walk to Kiloran beach. A great holiday.
Very comfortable and roomy house perfect for family or celebratory gatherings. Fireplace and WiFi extra boons.
The apartment was very comfortable and suited my needs, the only thing lacking was a shower. But overall very nice.
We stayed at the cottage for 5 days in November and used it as a base for walking. There were only two of us which was perfect, 4 would be fine. 6 would be a squeeze. Everything there you would need, although some hot water bottles or an electric blanket would have been good. Probably not necessary in he summer months. An amazing location just a short hop to a stunning beach. An amazing island our second visit this year.
The electricity is not included in the price, I would rather pay more on the rental than await to see how much I will be charged after the stay. Location of cottage is perfect for a relaxing holiday and I would go back
We really enjoyed our stay - 2 adults, 2 teenagers - though if we'd used the third bedroom then the living room and particularly kitchen would have struggled for comfortable size. Well equiped with all items working although might have been nice to have a TV also (though for Colosay visitors in the summer this may not matter much). The wifi struggled to keep up with two teenagers but then the wifi on the island is generally poor compared to the spoiled mainland (are you listening Nicola?) Where our experience suffered a little had nothing to do with the cottage but surprisingly poor custome...more
Really love this cottage particularly the location. The bathroom is very dated and cold and certainly in need of an upgrade.
