Very comfortable stay............................................................................ :) !
House a good size and convenient for store and hotel. Fresh, pretty decor. Very disappointed to find broken cot on arrival. Fortunately arrived on early ferry so got it fixed. Oil and electricity are usually included in cost. A certain amount of coal should certainly be included in cost. All staff very nice and helpful.
Fantastic holiday in Colonsay again. Second year running for us and this time in Baleromindubh House rather than Baleromindubh Cottage. Perfect for our dog with the walled and wire fenced garden.
We chose Drumclach as a base for our holiday on Colonsay because we were looking for a small property which would suit our needs. We have stayed in Colonsay Estate properties before and in particular in a Colonsay House apartment. We have always been well satisfied. we enjoy exploring the Island on foot and by bicycle. The property is on old property but the furnishings are in keeping with the property, not modern but entirely functional. The bed is extremely comfortable (we have always found this to be the case with the Estate Properties) with modern bed linen. The small kitchen is fitted wi...more
Lovely snug cottage with very comfortable beds, cosy fireplace and amazing location. We stayed with our two children and a puppy and all loved it - brilliant to have a break from screens. Colonsay is crazily beautiful in every direction and the holiday couldn't have been easier - groceries delivered on arrival, cafe and hotel for meals out, beaches, walks, bookshop, and nothing ever far away. Even the rain was good - gave us a chance to curl up in the cottage.
Wonderful house, ideal for the 3 generations who holidayed together for the first time. We had plenty of space, a bathroom each and found the kitchen to be very well equipped. The new extension was well used both for dining and just sitting looking out at the fabulous view of Jura. On blustery and wet days the house was cosy- the living room stove was a great boon.
This was our third time at Machrins. Our group comprised 7 adults and 5 children aged under 5. The size of the house meant we never felt crowded. We use the dining room as a playroom and eat in the kitchen. The garden has always been thankfully free of sheep poo, so our young children have had a great time rolling on the grass and down the slopes.
We were very pleasantly surprised, particularly by the little extra touches like the fire being laid ready to light and with a full coal scuttle (and how nice it is for the coal, kindling etc all to be included in the price rather than as optional extras) and the hot water was on ready. The bed was really comfortable with a very good quality mattress and plenty of pillows. We would happily stay here again.
Lovely location. Stunning views, escape from a busy working life to Hebridean retreat with no TV Internet or phone reception... Bliss
Not my first time in Sgreadan.... probably not my last (if it's available) Not my first time in Sgreadan.... probably not my last (if it's available)
I was sharing Avenue cottage with New Zealanders. They seemed relatively happy with the cottage facilities. however, they were appalled that the cost of electricity and heating were not included in the rental of the premises. Also, they commented on the 'size of the bag of coal' for which the charge was Twenty Pounds. I, ordered the coal and accepted the service of having the beds 'made up'. I made the order early in September. I received an E-mail suggesting that I pay the outstanding bill before the 18 th June !!
