A lovely cottage with a garden and a fabulous view over the Holy Loch. Thank you for a great stay.
"We had a party of eight (five adults and three childern 5/12 and 14) staying the three nights at Kenmore and everyone had a thouroughly fantastic time! The kids had plenty of outdoor space to run around and the adults had a great decked area to relax on. The owners Lynda and Stuart live next door but respect your privacy and are on hand to assist if needed, even for a bag of ice for the drinks!! The house itself was very spacious and had all the mod cons you needed for a comfortable stay. The Creggan Inn is a two min walk from the house where they serve good food and drink. A 10/10 long weeke...more
Second time we have stayed . We are a party of two adults and two teenagers and attend the Cowal gathering. This cottage is perfect for us and we are booked for same time next year.
Birch cottage is just as described with comfortable accommodation and fabulous views over Loch Long. The owners are very friendly and helpful and we had a wonderful week at Stronchullin. We only used the ground floor as there was just two of us.
Never better. It was great..........................................................................
It was our second stay in this lovely cottage. The place is perfect for large families. Everything is very clean, the bed are extremely confortable and the kitchen well equiped. We can not fault it! We would certainly come back!
An excellent place to stay in Kames/Tignaburagh. Excellent hosts as well, so friendly and helpful. The house (upper level) is very cozy and spotlessly clean and more than adequate. Large bathroom with shower over the bath and a toilet along with a separate toilet along the hallway. It has the most beautiful view out over the water to wake up to each morning, which is ever changing in light, movement and sea going boats. The Kitchen is very well equipped with everything that you need to cook a dinner. (we cooked a Roast dinner) We stayed there with two other adults and felt we all had ple...more
This is a gorgeous little holiday cottage. Yes, the size may be on the small side,but everything possible has been done to ensure your needs are met. The living room has a pretty view over the water, and there’s a little garden area in which to sit. The owners could not have been kinder or more helpful. They had left us sandwiches and cakes on arrival, a supply of tea and coffee was also provided. More home baking was delivered to us a few days later! The cottage is about 1.5 miles to the town supermarket- an easy flat walk with plenty of seating along the way should anyone need a stop. ...more
Had an amazing holiday at Benmore Byre. Lovely sunny patio to sit out and watch the hills, forests, birds and sheep. We saw red squirrels every day and even a pine marten! Beautifully clean accommodation and very comfortable beds. Spectacular forest walks nearby and plenty to do in Dunoon as well. WiFi was unavailable - not a problem for us, but maybe for some folks if they were expecting to have it. The Botanic Gardens Cafe (a beautiful 10 minute stroll away) does have WiFi though if you happen to need it, as well as lots of nice cakes.
Having great weather enhanced our stay. Wildlife highlight was a seal on the seal shaped rock not far from the cottage one evening - unfazed by one of use going down close to take a photo.
What a great place! A stylish renovation, a well-equipped old cottage with all the modern conveniences, tranquil setting, Loch Fyne in the distance. We loved watching the birds and red squirrels on the feeders. A lovely welcome from John & Victoria, with flapjack and fresh flowers. They were friendly and helpful without ever being intrusive. A really relaxing stay.
la casa è molto bella spaziosa fornita di tutto il necessario e con una posizione stupenda vista lago mozzafiato le informazioni per l'arrivo, consegna chiavi, è veramente efficiente bellissima vacanza
What a lovely cottage: small but everything that makes life comfortable was there! Beautiful surroundings and lots to do, loads of suggestions and information provided! It was really nice to meet our host Mark!
This was a l Iovely cabin in a great location.. For our adventures with our kids. The cabin is cosy and well equipped for a family life.. And also so tranquil that relaxing is made very easy. It was clean and well kept.. Very much a little home. I would highly recommend to families and couple.. Who have a busy itenarary or just to relax and enjoy the beauty.
We are four adults of mature age who rented Heathfield Villa for a long week-end. We found the property was excellent for our needs. It is situated near the town centre, perhaps a 10 minute walk. nearby are restaurants, bars and shops. This villa would be excellent for a family holiday with children as it has a lovely big (safe) garden. There are toys, games, DVDs, books etc. The wifi was very good. A special thank you to our host, Stephen, for the very welcome 'welcome pack'
The house was excellent. And what a wiew over Loch Fyne. We enjoyed our stay very much. One small thing was the heavy smell of bacon in the kitchen. The extractor hood could need to be cleaned. The rooms were nice and cozy and it was wonderfull to have a bathroom to each bedroom. We can recommend others to visit Ardkinglas and the Woodland Gardens in Cairndow. We wouldn't hesitate to come back to the house in the future. The clothes horse to dry clothes was still broken.
Perfect accomodation for a family Holiday in western Scotland! Beautifully located directly at the seashore. Very well equipped and very, very nice Hosts. Thank You very much!
This is a clean and comfortable cottage, large garden to the rear with stunning views to the front. We enjoyed our stay very much and look forward to returning.
5 star luxury on the secret coast of Argyll .its the second time we’ve stayed at waterside can’t wait till the next time thank you Bruce & Penny
Stayed here in late June weather was kind good food in Kames hotel ( 2 min walk ) area good for walking. Cycling etc very chilled , haven't stayed in the area for years and it has not lost any of its charm , cottage is excellent and I will definitely book again
This is the third time we have been to the Benmore Farm accommodation and, once again, we had a fantastic stay. The accommodation is superb and well maintained. The surrounding location is great with many beautiful walks close by. Very quiet and undisturbed. Highly recommended.
We had a fantastic stay at Iverfyne. Lovely comfortable cottage with all the amenities and mod cons you need. Beautiful area with Loch fyne restaurant, garden centre coffee shop and the brewery within walking distance. Inverary is just 15 minutes away with lots to see and do. Also a great location to visit other parts of Scotland. We particularly enjoyed seeing the cattle in the fields right next to the cottage. Very cute and cheeky reaching over to eat the garden plants!!
What can I say!! It was clean, cosy, comfortable and the owners were most welcoming with the lovely extras laid on. Location was perfect and was quiet, tranquil, with stunning views all around. Totally recommended!! 10/10.
Cockleshell lodge is located in the most beautiful of settings facing the beach and the loch. It is spacious and very well equipped and the beds are really comfortable. We had a wonderful three days here and wished we had booked for longer. We were lucky and the weather was glorious and with sunsets to die for this was bliss.
Enjoyed our stay in the apartment. It was during an exceptionally warm period and the lot can get quite hot. But most of the windows open (not the windows in the upstairs bathroom) and it was possible to sit outside (although the garden is shared). Very well equipped. Bedrooms could do with some storage areas (to store things) but otherwise a great place.
This was a very spacious, comfortable place and really well equipped. The surroundings were lovely - beautiful countryside and very quiet and peaceful. We had some lovely walks from the bungalow. It's quite remote so quite a drive to get to other places. However we went to Glasgow for a day via ferry and train and it was easy if a little long.
Have stayed in this lovely flat many times and our next stay is booked already. Location and views suit us perfectly. Sitting at the big window in the sitting room watching yachts and the tide come and go along with herons, seals and gannets passing is soooo relaxing! Our only continuing issue has been that the fridge/freezer is not the one in the photo. Be aware that the fridge is much smaller and the freezer is a small top box plus it's not as deep as a normal fridge either so fitting foodstuffs and holiday wine supplies has always been a problem for us and especially during this hot spell....more
We spent 10 days at the Alt Beag House and the pictures do not the property justice. The property has everything you require and the extra touches of books,games and large selection of dvd’s available to use. The views from the property are stunning and there are lots of interesting things to do in the area. We where a group of six with age group ranging from 20 to 80 and our pet border collie, their property offered plenty of room. Would highly recommend and will be returning again.
House was beautiful and perfect for our family holiday. Lots of room for the little one to play and we loved the balcony for relaxing in the evening. The area was gorgeous and we found lots to occupy three generations of the same family. The garden was secure so we will look to bring the four legged members of the family next time, that is always a concern when properties advertise dog friendly, but this certainly was. The hosts were great, the pub is excellent and the food delicious. What's not to like? We will be back!
Having grown up in the village and with plenty of family in the area to stay with. We chose not to put anyone out and rented this beautiful house. And will definitely do it again. Breathtaking views and peaceful at all times of the day. Highly recommended
Very well presented. Everything seemed new and clean. Simple and homely. Great location. We visited Crinan, Port Appin, and Tarbet all within easy reach. Huge choice of walks and we particularly enjoyed fishing on Loch Awe from Loch Awe boats. Does have some road noise.
Wonderful in all point of view......................................................................
It's in a lovely quiet and scenic area. Great for a get away from it all holiday. Facilities in the lodge are excellent, everything you need is there. There is plentyto see and do around the area.so mean ideal base. We loved our stay.
Great location. Fantastic outlook. Well equipped kitchen. Great seating arrangement in the living room. Pool room enjoyed by the men.
wee have a good time staying at lodge everything there for families cannot fault it that's our second time there wont be last time....the only thing were lodge is and want to go to club house at night is the lighting not very good got to watch footing.....but that's not owners fault feel could do with better lighting.
I can't tell you how much we appreciated their kindness in letting us stay at their amazing house. The house was superb, the house appliances were available beyond our demand and the lake view was very beautiful. Most of all we enjoyed the positive energy in the house.
Stairway at back a bit damp but not inside the house. Quirky layout with fantastic views. Friendly neighbours.
Very nice upper floor apartment with great view over wonderful Kyles of Bute. Great location in village of Kames, close to local amenities (well-stocked general store with helpful, friendly proprietor; pleasant waterfront not far below, local hotels, golf course and 10 mins from Portavadie spa resort). When there was small problem with electrical supply, owner and local contractor were extremely quick to tackle issue - both were very friendly and helpful. Comfortable stay (only lounge sofa bed was not the best, but were perfectly adequate). Altogether a very pleasant stay. Will certainly retur...more
Super little cottage, well maintained with everything we could need. Lots of extras included like tea and coffee, toilet and kitchen rolls, cleaning products. Quiet location with excellent walks for the dog, short drive or 30min walk from Kilmartin. Pub served excellent food and is dog friendly too. We used the cottage as a base to explore Argyll and the Islands, exceptionally beautiful area, we will be returning to explore more.
There were 5 of us in this cottage advertised for 6. However, the accommodation was clearly designed for 4 or less. So, only 6 mugs, plates etc meant washing up after every snack. Only 4 comfortable chairs. No wardrobes or drawers in the bedrooms, just a small hanging space, so in shared rooms, one person had to live out of a suitcase. The outside furniture was a couple of rough benches and a table, no cushions to put out on the chairs and very heavy to move. There is no garden. The location was also misleading. It is loch side but there is no real access to the loch. It's down a really roug...more
A lovely little cottage in a superb location. Has everything needed for a nice relaxing break Felt a little uneasy with the owners staying outside in a motor home for two nights though
we had a very nice week up there by the Loch Asgog .. kids could even swim in the lake, very remote location exactly as we prefer
Excellent chalet with most mod cons - no dishwasher though! comfortable beds and good neat kitchen and shower room. Unfortunately I fell and broke my wrist, and we discovered nearest A&E is in Dunoon - 25 miles away. That's the price you pay for being off the beaten track. We loved it and will be back.
The flat is well situated but I found a few matters which made it unlikely to use again.tv did not work so had to wait till next day to get it changed.no cheese grater which cleaner took from top flat to give me and no air freshener so a few ear ears like that and the clock is still one hour behind.
Overall, a lovely cottage in a lovely location. Shower could be a little stronger but otherwise grand.
Fantastic size. Fully equipped with all we needed and more. Very useful having 3 bathrooms. Great space for dogs to roam. Perfectly located with stunning views and access to amazing places to visit
Lovely quiet location overlooking boatyard and coast of Bute, view is ever changing with clouds, light and boats. Well appointed inside and out (though weather can be poor). Our third stay at Alderside and may well come back again.
We spent a wonderful week in June, 2018 at Yealand House. Very comfortable for our party of 5. Hidden down a driveway from several other houses, you’ll enjoy perfect quiet. The kitchen is well-equipped for preparing and consuming full meals (several food markets are located in nearby Lochgilphead if you’re doing the cooking). The clothes washer, dryer, and dishwasher are all in top condition, too. The family room enjoys stunning views over the water to Jura, with light past 11pm in June. There is also a sunny room at the back of the house, perfect for morning tea and coffee. There are ...more
Location amazing Bedrooms very disappointing - cold, damp feeling & lots of rubbish dumped outside window. Rooms needed to be aired & heated before use. Had to use bed settee on first night. Kitchen cooking equipment could be improved. Not sure if would recommend.
Our family party of 10 stayed for 4 nights at Enmore Beach House in May. The accommodation layout is spacious and very good for 10. The open plan lounge / dining / kitchen is excellent with a wonderful view over the loch. However the household facilities, equipment & fittings were all tired and need updating. The bedding, towels, cutlery, crockery, glasses, cooking utensils were all somewhat random and overused - a jumbled assortment of low quality items. Other issues were a bit annoying - dishwasher never worked, many lightbulbs missing or blown, TV & Wifi also gave up during our stay...more
cosy remote location, far away from any network so as not to be disturbed by busy daily life. nice neighbors, good beer at the entry of the glen, an outside table would be nice.
Very heartly welcome by Mrs Neville. Cottage was what we expected to see after having booked it on the internet. We walked in the surrounding villages and went to Dunoon and Inveraray. It was a very plaesant holiday at a very nice cottage.
Although the house looked good on paper, in reality there is definitely a need for some TLC. The house itself was good, but none of the curtains actually fitted the windows, the bidet in upstairs en suite did not work, oven trays and frying pans were not clean, and windows inside and out were filthy... perhaps a word with cleaners is needed... To advertise a BBQ in garden ,when in fact it is a George Foreman Grill in kitchen is a bit of poetic licence. There is no piano in dining area and no access to gym equipment in garage as advertised. Several deck boards are loose and could cause a s...more
Really enjoyed our stay, flat was big enough for 5 adults and 2 dogs, very well equipped. The only downside was the path to the entrance which even before the frost was slippery. Would rent again, thank you.
With stunning views across Loch Fyne, the cottage was both cosy and spacious. Being able to open the doors and let the children run and play on the safe pebbly beach, and then sit at night and watch the sun sink over the water made for a truly relaxing holiday. We can't wait to go back. With plenty of beautiful places to visit in the area, but with the beach outside the door providing enough to keep everyone happy from rowing out onto the water to stone skimming for more relaxing days of going nowhere, this cottage was perfect.
Nice cottage.friendly owners Comfy beds and good facilities lovely views. Quad biking fun. Beautiful area.
The binder of info was both helpful and in need of updating. We were unable to clean as no vacuum or mop. We enjoyed the layout and the kitchen was well equipped. DW door needs adjusting. Twin beds need new mattresses. Lovely crib and high chair provided for us ❤️. Lovely grounds and outdoor dining table. We would return.
We had a lovely snowy weekend at the cottage, slightly put of at first by the fact the house was attached however once through the front door this became irrelevant as the rooms all face the rear of the property which looks out to a lovely garden and river with no one over looking. The property was to a high standard and easy to find using the directions given.the hot tub was great and would recommend this property to anyone.
We booked this lodge for a weekend break.. the lodge is in a beautiful setting, and very quiet and peaceful... but the lodge it’s self does require some work, the furnishings were dated and worn, the bedding in particular was all faded and not very comfortable... the bathroom was spotless but the rest of the lodge could really do with a good clean..
Had a great relaxing holiday away from it all ( the good weather was a bonus). Lots of walks to do and some great scenery. Would recommend the strone inn for food. Welcome pack was a lovely touch.
Perfect location to then go walking, spend time on beach, kids play in park. Shopping 10min lovely drive along coast, then back to the escape. Yes bit dark, bit if a wobbly sofa bed, front door bit stiff BUT v low price so can’t complain and I would still go back again!
Stayed in this cabin 2 years running and will stay again. If you like fantastic walks on your doorstep this is the place. Cabin is very comfortable. Also has Wi-Fi which is a plus. We had a great time
I just made a note for three days my wife and boy were welcomed very well the house we found clean and warm we felt good but we would have stayed more maybe next year
This cottage was fitted out well and had the bonus of having owner nearby to assist with any problems. This is a bonus for anybody who does not know area as they are willing to answer any questions.
The cottage is beautifully furnished but we felt it was very expensive for the time of year. Also only a small bag of logs was provided free of charge, any after that was £5. It was very cold in the living room and the heater was not enough to warm the room. The parking is not good as it is just in a field gate which was very muddy, this then got trampled into the house. We loved Loch Long, which was full of wildlife, especially watching the harbour porpoises.
Comfortable house which was ideal for a family stay. Snooker room was an added bonus. Good location and a nice quiet area.
We had a wonderful time at the Boat House, cosy with the fireplace, beautiful view (even otters came along) and quiet. We got flowers and herbs from Richard from the garden and also tried some vegetables. :-) Just to be helpfull the following: Some things can be a bit better. The wood for the stove should be a little smaller fore the Boat House or an ax would be helpfull. The kitchen is a bit outdated but still functional. The outside of the house could use a little paint. The windows need to be cleaned at the inside to have an even better view ;-).
