All perfect. Our fifth stay in one of the estate houses and easily the best. Wish the track up was easier but you can’t have everything! All in all really great.
Yet another great stay at Baleromindubh House. Accommodated all the family and even room for other friends staying on island to come over.
Situated right at the top of the house this lovely little apartment was a perfect place to stay, it's thoughtfully appointed with a great selection of kitchen equipment, comfy bed and coal fire for chilly evenings. A short walk from the golden sands of Kiloran Bay it's a great place to set our hiking from and we enjoyed cooking in the evening (the Balnahard mutton and meat from the shop is great). The bathroom is beautiful but the shower doesn't really do more then dribble, however it's an excuse to have a bath now and again (or a dip in the sea if you're brave!) If you are planning to stay ...more
Colonsay is a great place to unwind but you need to be flexible with the weather and ferry services. Locals are very friendly. Cottage was cosy and needed to be. Catering in all places we visited was surprisingly good given the challenges of island life.
From comfortable and spacious ground floor accommodation available for one of our party with a mobility problem (and their spouse) and two shower/toilet rooms on the ground floor... to a tip top kitchen. A house with plenty of storage including a car space and a large garden with stunning views and a friendly morning heron on a rock by the sea...it was fabulous. The house was full of the food of our choice when we arrived in the evening after the shop had closed so we were totally at ease from the moment we arrived. We think that Colonsay is a fantastic location for a holiday that is as relaxi...more
Just returned to work, so with catching up, this will be short. Very comfortable with nice beds and linen. Having sheep in the garden was at times charming and at times squishy! Having one poo free area could be nice. Suggestions: Simple central heating card affixed to control panel and to Rayburn Kitchen cooker/heater giving simple instructions. We got the rayburn working by guesswork. Garden Table leg wasn't attached but was easily propped up All in all, the farmhouse was great and we had a great holiday. John
Harbour cottage is perfect for a couple (plus dog); more than this might find it a squeeze, with the one bathroom and a tight kitchen. The upstairs bedrooms are accessed via a very steep open staircase, unsuitable for small children or older folk, or those with impaired mobility. The cottage was beautifully clean and well-equipped, with wi-fi, though no television or radio (not a problem for us). We were lucky with the late summer weather and were able to make use of the sunny and secluded outside seating area for breakfast and evening drinks. The garden is well-fenced and the good-sized lawn ...more
We have now stayed three times in the Nursery and will be back again. The accommodation is comfortable and convenient for strolls to Kiloran Bay. We enjoyed the coal fire in the evenings. The dogs, Otto and Humphrey, were good fun too.
Avenue cottage is set in a woodland garden and is a spacious and warm cottage. What it lacks in views it gains from being able to hear nesting buzzards and watching bats from the garden. The kitchen area is large but could do with some ventilation, other than opening a window. The double bedroom has a very comfortable bed and having too bathrooms can be a real boon.
Machrins house is perfectly located within walking distance to the golf course and a beautiful beach. Very comfortable and spacious house with plenty of hot water and effective drying rails in bathrooms - so important on the west coast. On arrival, very clean house and our shopping order was waiting for us in the house! Brilliant house for 2/3 families.
Lovely and peaceful, away from all the modern distractions of phone, TV or internet. Delightful. Thankyou.
As far as value for money goes, you couldn’t fault it. In saying that, I would rather pay a little bit more, and have better accommodation. The beds were very uncomfortable, as were the sofas, after sitting on them for half an hour, you were beginning to go numb. The overall cleanliness could be a lot better, our cottage was full of cobwebs and a bit dusty. Forgetting all the above, the Island of Colonsay was out of this world, with its stunning scenery, and outrageous beaches that wouldn’t look out of place in the Caribbean. The walks were all rewarding, with non stop views at every point. Th...more
cottage well provided with everything we required. Staircase to upper bedrooms requires a hand rail for safety and not suitable for anyone with difficulty. External brickwork could do with a coat of whitewash and local signage although directions were spot on. wi-fi not always consistent . Possible inclusion of television would be appreciated. Utility costs seem extremely high for electricity and not mentioned when booking.
