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.
This apartment has great views onto the house gardens and its huge trees - well worth visiting for a small fee and for a grand view of where you're staying. It's very well equipped with all you need for self-catering. Due to the great weather we had, we didn't need to use the open fire, but kindling and coal was supplied and there was free use of washing facilities in a separate laundry room. Wifi also available.
All really lovely and well equipped. Only slight problem was having enough hot water for so many people
I first stayed at Baleromindubh Farmhouse over 60 years ago, obviously before its modernization, which I think has been done well. The house lies at the end of a half mile track from the road. The track is very rough and can be tricky to drive over in places. But from the house wonderful views abound, north to Mull, Scarba and even Ben Nevis on a really clear day, and eastwards to Jura with its Paps and raised beaches, and on round to Islay. We enjoyed our stay but the house felt cold and damp, perhaps as we were only the second let of the season. The night storage heaters, off for the ...more
A really lovely comfortable cottage, fantastic views across to Jura... The cottage is well equipped.
A fabulous holiday. We will definitely be back! We especially appreciated there not being a tv, cards & Articulate were way more fun.
The location of this cottageon this beautiful island is unbeatable, so hardly anything else matters. The cottage itself is tastefully restored and has all the comfort needed. The kitchen is well equipped and clean, the bathroom is small but the shower is excellent. The master bedroom is large, light and comfortable. The other rooms are fine too although some of the beds are better suited for young people. We used the downstairs bedroom as a boots room, which was handy. Entering directly from the terrace into the living room means space for shoes , coats and and beach utensils is sparse. The d...more
A nice cottage in lovely woodland close to Colonsay House. The cottage was well equipped with everything we needed.
An Internet hub was installed but, no service provided. Night storage heaters and stove in poor condition. Overall condition of cottage very tired.
We stayed in three of the Colonsay Hotel properties during our visit and we loved the Nursery Apartment: the size and situation was just right and the view of the garden lovely.
Machrins and Colonsay never fail to deliver an antidote for modern life....no matter the weather ! Bliss.
We found the cottage to be ideally situated for visiting all parts of the island.Breakfast in the garden overlooking the Loch was delightful ( apart from the deserted bungalow in front!) We were pleased to have apparently new carpets and curtains throughout, and the bed linen was crisp , with a lovely duvet.unfortunately the same cannot be said of the double-bed mattress,which sagged dreadfully, and certainly needs replacing! However, the sunshine,fresh air, long walks and hospitality everywhere we went meant we could sleep soundly. All in all, we had a great time exploring the beaches and ...more
Excellent holiday in Garvard on a beautiful island that is doing a wonderful job of keeping free of litter
