Ardmaddy Estate sits in a quiet, gentle corner of Argyll on the west coast of Scotland. Whilst within half an hour of the harbour town of Oban and only three hours from Glasgow, once there, you feel as though you are in a different time and space to the rest of the world.
Its quiet tranquility and the utter peace soothes the soul and rest the senses. Its open spaces and magnificent views free the mind. Surrounded by woodland, hills, moors and the sea, Ardmaddy is also a haven for wildlife – from eagles soaring above the hills, to skylarks singing their hearts out and from deer grazing on the hillsides to otters hunting by the shore – there is so much here for you to see and experience.
We had a fabulous stay at Caddleton. The house is beautiful and has everything and more. The only thing that needs a bit more info is the Aga. Other than that we had a fantastic stay. The views from the house are spectacular. A real relaxing holiday. Thank you Caddleton.
Once again a super fortnight at this spectacular cottage.
Everything as always spotless with fresh flowers in lounge and dining area, a tea tray with shortbread awaiting us.
We really appreciated Jan and her team for the extra effort made, making sure everything was Covid safe.
Every window you get super views of the wildlife & passing boats, always plenty to see.
We have seen plenty of seals every day, all the geese which have been very active flying overhead & feeding in the fields & on the seashore.
We saw a Sea Eagle on the shoreline near to the cottage which was feeding on a goose wh...more

The only slight drawback was that I was told twice while on the phone to pick up the keys at the castle but when we tried to do this I was told that I could not have been told this I must have read it on outdated information sheet. No I was told while on the phone. But that is bye the bye our stay was wonderful.5 stars from me.
We have had many lovely holidays at Forest Cottage. It was in its usual spic & span state when we arrived. Jan's lovely flower arrangements just add a warm welcoming touch.
We were very lucky with the weather & got out & about each day. We were really impressed by the way the places at which we lunch had adapted to the current regime. The sea food was as good as ever.We lunched at the Puffer Inn, Easdale, Atlantic Islands, Luing, The Oyster Bar & Tigh-an-Truish, Seil plus the Loch Melfort Hotel. Our usual en-route restaurant in Oban was closed.
Minette's garden was as attractive as ever. We ...more
