My family and I have been to Shelbourne a few times and it’s always excellent. Plenty of space for the kids, with enough to do around (if you like going on outdoor ‘adventures’ as the kids call it). Mike, the owner, is also very nice and approachable- makes the stay that bit better!

Can thoroughly recommend staying here.




A lovely home away from home

We were only a party of 6 but there was room for plenty more due to the size of the house. All rooms large and very well furnished with both modern and period furniture. Kitchen as should be, large and well equipped, a place for all to sit and plan the day's events over breakfast. Pleasant to watch all the boats move down the locks on the canal. Lovely sitting room with a fire place.

Lochgilpead is only 2 miles away - a nice walk for those who like active rest. Great breadshop in Lochgilpead. Fishing off the peer at Tarbert is a must for the plentiful mackerel.

A wonderful relax with very helpful and responsive property owner. A must for a return visit!




A brilliant location for exploring a beautiful and interesting part of Argyle.

The house was very comfortable and suitable for a large group, with a magnificent dining room looking over the canal. The breakfasting kitchen and small pantry were spacious, although a second or larger fridge would have been useful. The two front bedrooms upstairs overlook the canal and there are comfortable seats arranged to take in the view. There was a useful covered space for cycle storage too. The location was perfect for cycling and for gentle walks along the canal tow path and with the added interest of castles and ancient monuments. A longer expedition was to the Island of Gigha, seen at its best on a beautiful sunny day. This is a lovely house to stay in and I would recommend it.



Fantastic house in a fantastic location!

3 generations of family enjoyed a fantastic weekend at Shelbourne Lodge. The house is just beautiful and the many original features were admired by everyone. The kids loved the working servants bell system and delighted in playing waiters for the weekend. Everyone commented on the comfort of all the beds and the fantastic sleep they got. The location of the house is prime position, close enough to lochgilphead for the amenities but far enough out to enjoy the quiet of the countryside. The canal being on your doorstep is a great asset to the house and in the brief intervals of good weather we had, a walk along the canal was enjoyed with the dogs. One of our guests is in a wheelchair and the disability friendly facilities of the house was much appreciated especially the downstairs bathroom which is a credit. The owners left lots of little things that were very handy like towels, washing liquid, kitchen roll etc. Its all the little things you forget to take with you. As there were no guests booked in for the day we were leaving Mike allowed us a relaxed check out which with 5 kids to organise was much appreciated. We are already in discussion of dates to return to Shelbourne Lodge again. Thank you very much to Mike for such an enjoyable stay!
