Lovely cottage , just right for couple wishing to get away from it all . The cottage is well equipped with everything you could possibly need, is clean and well presented. Ideal location to explore from . Local amenities short car ride away. Only recommendations would be TV could do with being a bit bigger as not easy for those with eyesight issues and a couple of sun loungers outside would have been great to catch some rays ...
Lovely apartment in a great location Very clean and comfortable we were a party of 2 adults and 2 adult children would definitely recommend
We stayed for 3 nights in September 2022 at the Ardenlee Lodge. The accommodation is compact and tastefully furnished. It is perfect for a couple. We received a warm welcome from the hosts, who showed us all the facilities. The property consists of a bedroom with double bed and small shower enclosure and a main room with settee, TV, table and chairs and kitchen facilities. Cutlery and crockery for two people is provided and all were in excellent, clean condition. Although no oven is provided, everything else you would need is there to prepare simple meals. Between the two main rooms is a sh...more
This is our fourth stay at Derryguaig by the sea since 2020...we simply love this property. The views, walks nearby, beaches, cycling routes-the list is endless... but nothing beats the feeling of home on each return visit. The property is well equipped with everything you need, a wonderful multi-fuel fire, gardens to front and rear and i have to say very welcoming locals. We will definitely return.
Our Dance Family had a great time. Lovely accommodation, great location and lovely views. Thank you so much xx
Very nice and beautiful clean house and nice river view..few minutes walk to the river.a bit over charged price should be a bit less but not bad
We were made welcome by the owner. Good,clean cottage excellent location, great views down the loch.
Very little to more to add. The location and views are just wonderful. If you are lucky with the weather like we were then it would be hard to beat. All around restful and relaxing.
If you wish a walk on the quiet side, then do not hesitate to stay at this lovely house, Ardfyne. With beautiful views over Loch Fyne to the west and in a great location altogether, this property is superbly well-equipped and spacious. Also, well-placed for an evening meal out in the nearby Creggans Inn, book ahead as this is a very busy restaurant with great seafood. Forest trails, mooching along the shoreline for shells and driftwood, hills and gardens to explore, and within easy distance of most places such as Inveraray, Benmore Gardens by Dunoon and your own hidden gems yet to discover i...more
House was clean, well equipped and comfortable. Looks like the house has been redecorated recently so everything in great condition. Little extras like the welcome hamper and enough dishwasher tablets and toilet roll for a week were a nice extra touch that a lot of other places we've stayed haven't provided
Had a fantastic stay at this property. Very clean and comfortable throughout with all the finishing touches, such as a welcome basket (with biscuits, coffee, wine and whisky). Would definitely stay here again when we return to Argyll/Kintyre area. Beautiful views over Loch Gilp. Handy for amenities and also ferry links to the Southern Hebrides. Mr and Mrs Law were so helpful.
The accommodation was excellent. The location on a small crescent meant there was no noise from traffic and it was only a two minute drive to the main road. We particularly appreciated the secluded backyard, with chairs on the Patio looking onto the woods at the back of the property.
My wife and I celebrated our anniversary at Craignethan. The location is just perfect and the environment so peaceful, relaxing and absolutely stunning. I would certainly book the accommodation again, and we will definitely be back to the area next year. When the weather is right, it’s better than the Med!!
We had a great 4 night stay. Lovely, clean, modern, comfortable accommodation. Stunning views of the Kyles of Bute and walking distance of the hotel and shop. Great cooking facilities. Although, some basics like salt and pepper would have been handy or a little welcome pack. An ice tray would have been good.
Really enjoyed our stay. The cottage was clean and spacious with lots of modern facilities. The large window in the lounge really accentuated the view out onto the river and the mountains beyond. Some complimentary wine and shortbread didn’t do any harm either! Thoroughly recommended.
We stayed at Upper Alta as a couple and found the accomodation to be clean and comfortable. Although the lounge and front bedroom window overlooking the Kyles provided excellent views, the addion of the liitle balcony was a delight especially as we had good weather all week. The central heating control took some getting used to although we only needed to warm the towel rail in the bedroom since the weather was warm enough without turning on the radiators. The flat was spacious for two but could have accomodated four adults providing the bathroom rota was well organised! Arrival info could ...more
We had a fabulous stay at this house, the photos are great but the real thing is even better. We were blessed with sunshine in mid September but the amazing views would be great whatever the weather. The house is pristine with lovely interior design, really comfy beds, really good shower, really good wifi, really nice cookware and crockery. There is a little local shop just down the road but I would advise as we did bring some essentials with you so you don’t waste your holiday shopping for supplies. There are loads of lovely restaurants, fantastic walks and towns to visit we could have easil...more
Amber Lodge was a great place to stay for our week's holiday. Inside it felt very homely, was comfortable and had just about everything you needed. The weather was good so did not need the fire and we also did little cooking as we were out all day. Amber Lodge is well situated with lovely views and easy to get to the main road, handy for getting out and about. The owner was extremely friendly and provided lots of information. The Holiday Park Staff were also extremely helpful and friendly. Can recommend using the pool on site and the restaurant food was very good. Everything was dog fri...more
Small property but has everything you need. Very comfortable and ideal location for exploring the area. 10 minutes from Portavadie ferry across to Tarbert which opens up a further great area for exploring. Log fire in the living room which was a real bonus for us.
We have stayed at Gate Cottage a few time and are never disappointed would highly recommend a stay here
Location is perfect and property is ideal for a family. Great communication. This is our third stay and will be back again.
Very impressed with the facilities and location. We have stayed in many Hotels around the world, but as a self catering unit this ticked all the right boxes in comfort and speciousness
Our short stay at Sealladh Na Mara exceeded our expectations. The flat was very clean, comfortable, warm and generally a relaxing place to be. The location right on the shores of the Holy Loch is stunning, and the surrounding environment offers many wonderful and beautiful places to explore. We are already looking forward to returning for another short stay in the future.
Lovely apartment with fantastic views, great location. Well equipped and a lovely welcoming basket with goodies on arrival and info on local tourist attractions. Second bedroom probably more suitable for kids than adults but otherwise we loved the apartment and would stay again.
Lovely place to stay. Well-equipped and comfortable. Great location and perfect for walking. Many thanks
I have been at this cottage many many times and as always Argyll self catering and the owner are on top of everything. I can’t be tired of being here, great location, beautiful house.
We felt very safe as everything had been deep cleaned prior to our arrival. We were really impressed that disinfectant had been left for our use, the owners were in touch with us informing us of road closures which was helpful. This was our second visit and it won’t be the last
I found Shelburne Lodge by accident when contemplating what to do for my 70th birthday. It is in an area we love and the right size for three generations of family plus dogs. We had the best time, the house was perfect, weather was kind to us, and it was great for the children to see boats going through the canal. Proximity to the Cairnbaan Hotel enabled and extra couple to join us as well. Highly recommended.
Great location. October colours in forest and on hills stunning and cottage a very welcome warm place to return to after wet walks! Owners very helpful.
This is a nice little bungalow with grounds in the woods. It's isolated from other properties and far enough from the road so as to not hear anything, could hardly hear the visiting cockerel near the duck pond. There are numerous attractions close by or you can use the cottage as a base to explore further. As others have commented, the fridge is a little small and the duvets are a little hot but that's no biggie. There is a garage with shop next to a diner a couple of miles towards Dunoon with many shops and attractions in Dunoon itself. EV charging is available in Dunoon - it's worth g...more
Our Dance Family had such a great time at Loch View - awesome accommodation, awesome views. Thank you so much xx
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Davaar seafront. The location was ideal and very convenient. The inside was spacious and well equipped. The view from the living room window was amazing and one that we spent a lot of time admiring. A great property that we hope to use year after year. Thanks you kindly.
We had such a lovely stay at bay cottage, we are a family of 4 and the space was perfect for us. The cottage was clean and clearly well looked after! Our girls 4 & 1 absolutely loved the bath & our 4 year old totally obsessed with the bunk beds! And the fairy lit path up from the car was super cute in the dark! Thank you so much for letting us stay!
I have been at this cottage many many times and, as always,Argyll self catering and the owner are on top of everything. I can’t be tired of being here, great location, beautiful house… fantastic landscaping
I rented Findhorn Upper Apartment for a week for some much needed time out. The contact from Argyll Holidays and the owners direct was timely and helpful. The apartment was perfectly situated and i could sit in that bay window all day. The bed was exceptionally comfy and the kitchen well stocked. I'm already working out when we can come back as a family! A brilliant find in a great location!
Can't beat this location for a peaceful relaxing holiday with stunning views over Loch Long. The cottage was very well appointed super kitchen & very well equipped. We loved sitting out on the decking & just soaking it all up. There was only 2 of us so bear in mind if you are a party of 6 you may have to organise a bathroom rota!
Freeland cottage is a lovely place to stay. All mid cons are included and it is well situated for the town of Dunoon and also the country side behind it. Supermarkets and the town centre are in walking distance and many places of interest are a short drive or a ferry journey away. Just a couple of things to note, there was no teapot so I had to go out and buy one and the master bedroom could do with some curtains rather than blinds as it gets light very early in the morning in summer.
Thank you very much . everything is fine. large beautiful house in a beautiful setting. thank you Diane and see you next time
Appreciated the lovely touches of the welcome gift everything was there that we needed great environment and very relaxing
The position of the accommodation near the beach and location of the Kames hotel was perfect for our us . From the we visited other places of interest such as Rothsay and Dunoon . The owners Mr and Mrs duff were especially helpful during our stay The weather was an added bonus and the view accross the Kyles of Bute were fantastic
A beautiful house, well equipped kitchen, comfy beds, a verry kind and helpful host. We have only positive impressions and good feeling with our stay. Thank you for the opportunity to stay in your house.
We had a lovely stay over Christmas. Plenty space and facilities for 6 guests and our dogs. Our host was very helpful and easy to contact as required. Lovely break! Thank you!
A very spacious and comfortable flat with the most amazing views; spent a good few hours watching the world and the water go by, just what a holiday should be about
Lovely small cottage in a good location. Really handy for the local amenities. All restaurants, shops within walking distance of the cottage. Property, was clean & tidy. The only issue is with the windows & front door of the property. Neither are sealed properly or sound proof. So, you can hear all traffic going up & down the road. Particularly if sleeping in the front bedroom at night. The property needs double glazing.
Second visit and as good as we remembered. Peaceful location on Loch . Woodlea is very well equipped, spacious and comfortable. Spotlessly clean - a real home from home.
Angel Cottage is in a great location, looking over Holy Loch towards Dunoon and The Firth of Clyde. It's really accessible for the car ferry to Greenock, and a short drive for the ferry to Bute. There are great walks in the Argyll Forest nearby. The cottage is really comfortable, well-equipped, with high-quality items and furnishing; and perfect for a couple. We had a wonderful week, and recommend Angel Cottage as a great base to explore this criminally underrated area of Scotland. PS Ardentinny, Puck's Glen and Bowmore Botanic Gardens are must-sees!
However, we went for work there, we enjoyed every moment during our stay. The property is a home when we are away from home. The house is well equipped with everything you might need during your stay.
We spent six nights in the Dunbheag Cottage. It was so cosy inside, with everything you could possibly need for a home from home stay. The outdoor seating area on the decking was perfect for relaxing and al fresco dining which we did a lot of! It was super to have access to a section of private beach with a beach hut where we had several picnics! Our dog was made to feel very welcome and had a great time too. Our hosts were fantastic and gave us a lovely warm welcome of chocolates and prosecco. They were on hand for any queries. It was a truly lovely stay and we hope to be back one day. The St...more
The owners were very welcoming and this was a good central location in Dunoon.We changed tenants half way through the week and this was not a problem at all for the owners.I offered to change the beds for the new clients but the owners were quite happy to do this themselves.Many thanks to them
Not the first time we've stayed here and won't be the last. Fabulous location in a beautiful part of Argyll. The lodge is a perfect size for two and their pets. The wild birds visiting the feeding area outside the window was an added bonus. Friendly hosts Chris and Maggie made sure all was well. A suggestion for improvement would be for a washing machine in the kitchen instead of a dishwasher.
A cosy cottage, useful layout with large kitchen and bedrooms in separate 'wing' so they are quiet. Easy walking and cycling access to all the archaeological sites of Kilmartin.
Enjoyed our first, but hopefully not last, holiday at Dolphins Run. Beautiful lodge, really well equipped, dog friendly and in a lovely spot in Hunters Quay holiday Village. We were unsure what it would be like but the Village is beautifully kept with great facilities. We'll definitely be back.
Teal Cottage was just lovely. The setting was second to none. A truly beautiful location and perfect for a holiday to restore your equilibrium. The cottage had everything that you would need on holiday and our hosts were very generous, providing us with freshly caught Mackerel on our first day. We would definitely visit again.
The cottage is attached to the main house is the most stunning grounds with beautiful views of loch Fyne. It is very well equipped with a fabulous kitchen. The website did say there was a tumble dryer and fridge with ice. There is no longer a tumble dryer anda big freezer and new fridge is in place. The 3 bedrooms are pretty and a good size and the beds are so comfy it’s hard to get out of them. Plenty drawer space but lack of wardrobe and hangers. The living room is a mixture of furniture and quite dark - could do with a bit of a makeover. Lovey big bath and good shower with Plenty boiling h...more
Our family had a really great time staying at Sebright. The house is so comfortable and has a fantastic central location. The owners were extremely thoughtful in the way they had furnished the house, so that it felt like a real home from home, and we settled in straight away. We were also touched by the very kind ‘welcome pack’ left for us. There was ample parking for two cars, but it was lovely to be able to leave them most of the time as the beaches and the town, pool, castle gardens etc were all in easy walking distance. We were very sad to leave Sebright at the end of the week, as we’d had...more
We were for work in Dunoon and glad to return to this property. You can find all you need when you are away from home. Thank you
Nice comfortable cottage lovely views very peaceful location nice welcome pack good communication before we got there all Covid covered would recommend to anyone ale home very relaxed
We hired Tigh Na Cladach for a family get together to celebrate my mums 60th birthday. The house was perfect, lots of space and in a idilic setting. The kitchen dinner was a perfect spacious yet sociable area for spending time together. The house was very clean and had lovely modern touches. We will definitely be booking again.
A lovely cottage in a wonderful location. Spent most of the time looking at the view and the steps were no problem.
Staying at the lodge was really good. Lots of space and lots of opportunities to enjoy the view! Thank you.
For the last 6 years we have spent some of our summer vacation in the Cowall Penninsula and I always spend some time looking for the best place to stay. Ardmun House was a great find - the location is an ideal base for visiting so many different places and the house has everything that you need - a real home from home. The property is fully fenced and was therefore safe to let the grandson and dogs enjoy the outside space as we enjoyed the view of the water and beautiful scenery. Superb property.
All the beds upstairs were very uncomfortable , not a very good sleep , the sofas in the living room are also uncomfortable and hard to get off of , could do with a bigger fridge as it is for 10 people , and the oven is not great either
Fabulous location on the shore front, free parking, comfortable beds and chairs. Very interesting watching all the shipping go by, loved the Janes shipping guide. Double bedroom and a twin bedroom, two bathrooms so ideal for a family
13 of us went to Culzean house for a family birthday celebration. We had a lovely time, the house was very well equipped with everything that we needed. The weather was not great but that didn't stop us from enjoying the hot tub or the sauna every day. The house was a bit further out from shops than we realised so be prepared with all of your shopping in advance so that you don't have to do the 15/16 Mile drive into the town. We had no phone signal at all and with 6 youngsters was a bit frustrating for them although the up side to that was that we had brilliant family time, just being toge...more
The house is spacious, comfortable and everything you could possibly need is provided. The owner was also very helpful in helping us figure out the hot tub. Thank you!
A great house in a great place. Very warm and it had everything we needed for a family holiday. On arrival, my elderly mother opened the fridge door and it fell off and hit her on the head. The owner sourced a replacement fridge, but I had to help him shift it, and although he apologised, he showed no empathy or concern for my mum. Two of the downstairs toilets were dodgy too. The cisterns wouldn't fill without removing the lid and fiddling with the strange mechanism. This situation created stress in my mother and lessened her enjoyment of the holiday. The owner got a plumber out but the iss...more
Our Dance Family had an amazing time at Holy Loch. Lovely Location and lovely views. Thank you so much. xx
Great cottage and facilities close to lots of great walks, perfect for getting away from it all to relax with great views.
Springburn Cottage is located in a very quiet and peaceful location, just what we were looking for, a good base for south west Scotland. We had a very peaceful holiday, however, the cottage advertised, bears no resemblance to the cottage today, ie : overgrown. This cottage requires a clean in order to bring it up to a normal standard. As instructed we stripped the bedding and found to our dismay that a quilt was soiled with blood and pillows stained! This is a lovely cottage in a good location but has been neglected, a pity. Overall the cottage was well equipped.
The house is well organised. I will share three remaks to help you to improve it : - we didn't find a hairdryer; - it was impossible to dry our clothes in the garden (with the sun) because the rope for hanging is durty, broken so too short - the table legs are now too short: they need to be wedged Thank you again for this booking: we will come again!
My family and I loved staying in this beautiful cottage. The view from the large balcony across the loch is amazing. Looking over to the Isle of Bute we enjoyed watching the yachts sail by. There is a great swimming pool nearby at Portvadie with outdoor jacuzzis and fantastic view. Nice cafes in Tighnabruach (1.5 miles). Or you can take the ferry from Portvadie over to Tarbert, a nice fishing village with great harbour side cafe.
As above mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm
I booked this holiday home for my family for 6 days on 14th November we just arrived and before we could unpack to enjoy our holiday I received a call say my mum had passed away I contacted the argyll self catering holidays immediately to inform them I'd be going home did not contact me say I could get full or part refund witch I found left bad taste in my mouth I'll never be back here and advice people thinking off going through this company think again.
Lovely honeymoon stay at the cottage. An ideal base to explore the surrounding areas. The welcome produce basket & Prosecco a lovely touch. Thank you.
Had a great stay. Lovely cottage with stunning views. Great base to explore surrounding areas. Would recommend
The cottage was beautifully decorated and had everything that we needed for our stay. The view was wonderful and the telescope a nice addition so that you could look out across the Loch. The owners got in touch with helpful information, which was great. We loved our stay and would love to come back to the village. One negative would be that perhaps the parking should be more accessible.
Review submitted to Cottages.com via Reevo. Please contact Cottages.com for complete breakdown of our thoughts. Moreover, as the property is still in the process of being completed from an accessibility and use perspective, we would not currently recommend it.
A welcome pack with essential groceries was waiting for us upon arrival. Very kind. I would use this property again but i would request a thorough cleaning. The standard needs to be better.
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 ;-).
The cottage is in a relatively good location, a quiet corner of a sheep farm but within walking distance to amenities including a great pub and restaurant. The cottage was not very clean and smelt damp, there were crumbs and ants in some kitchen drawers, rubbish under a couch, many utensils were dirty, the kitchen floor had mucky foot prints.... however the sheets and towels were clean which was the main thing. The whole cottage inside and out needed painting, the perimeter fence was falling apart which meant sheep were often in the garden and their poo was everywhere, therefore dangerous f...more
Very comfortable and great location right in the centre but still very quiet. It would be good to have a few more items for the kitchen.
