Wet and windy few days but wonderful walking anyway - spacious and comfortable apartment to come back to. Open fire had we needed it but warm enough without.
Well equipped comfortable cottage with truly breathtaking views. Great place to stay for families or for groups. Isolated down a one mile track - really away from it all.
CalMac's winter timetable, seasonal storms and livestock sales all meant that travel plans had to be flexible. But it worked out well as the early ferry on Friday gave us a very sunny day at Ardskenish, and the slightly latter ferry the next Friday gave us more time to enjoy another sunny day. In between times there were great Atlantic storms bringing huge breakers on to Colonsay's west coast. Turnigil provided a great haven after long days out in the wild weather - perhaps the only suggestion is to have a few hooks in the downstairs corridor for very wet jackets!
We were very impressed with our accommodation at Pigs Paradise Apartment within Colonsay House. Spacious bedrooms, comfortable beds, well equipped and beautiful surroundings. We loved the coal fire and use of free wellies!
We were lucky enough to be able to get to Colonsay for October half term. This property was the perfect location with beautiful views and a beach in walking distance. Our only issues were the heating wasn’t left at the recommended setting therefore costing more money in the long run. In addition to this the water pressure in the kitchen was poor with very little hot water, other than that we couldn’t fault the property and would highly recommend staying there. We would like to thank Colonsay holidays for another fantastic holiday on a beautiful island we will be back soon.
Our stay at Baleromindubh Cottage exceeded our expectations – it included everything that we needed for a comfortable few days away. The sea views were incredible, the quiet broken only by the bleating of sheep and the sound of the wind. The cottage is an easy 40 minutes' walk from Scalasaig. We were originally due to stay in May 2020, but asked to postpone our trip as we didn't feel it was safe to travel at the time, for us, or the islanders. Colonsay Holidays allowed us to carry our booking over into 2021, with an additional payment of half the cost of the stay. The timing of the easing o...more
Lovely characterful accommodation. Lovely views over garden of Colonsay house. Very well equipped for its size. It is up 2 flights of stairs which might be an issue for less mobile. One chair is a bit saggy - mattress too to a lesser extent. Overall really lovely place to stay.
Have visited Colonsay and stayed in Tobaroran many times and it never disappoints. We had a really lovely stay and the Colonsay holiday staff were very helpful.
Harbour cottage is, no surprise, at the harbour - and very close to the shops and cafe, and a short walk to the hotel. It is also hidden away behind a barn, so quiet and private. A lovely situation, on an absolutely wonderful island. It is comfortable and warm, and has good Wifi, comfortable beds and a bath, a nice little area of garden with table and chairs. The furniture and fittings are not new, and rather tired. How the electricity bill is calculated is rather obscure.
Very comfortable house. Would be a squeeze for more than 8. Mean with the kindling and dishwasher tablets. Not much in way of cleaning materials, either. Nice sized rooms. Plenty of bathrooms.
Really enjoyed our stay, everything we needed was available in the apartment and the staff when booking were very , very helpful in these difficult times.
We cant think of anything negative to say other than very tiny niggles - the kitchen sink is in an awkward position... (but who cares really) - A decent washing up bowl in a larger sink might have made things easier but you're not going to enlarge the sink just for that... some more sharp knives in the kitchen wold have been useful - in fact that was probably the most annoying thing. Some smaller sharper ones and a decent bread knife that didn't bend. As large houses go i think it is in as good a position as any. We'd go back, if we wanted a house that size. We were sorry to leave. Th...more
One week at Avenue hidden in the woods; very peaceful and cosy cottage with coal stove and central heating. 2 bathrooms and good showers. Shed for bikes. Short 10 -15 mins walk to Kiloran beach. A great holiday.
Very comfortable and roomy house perfect for family or celebratory gatherings. Fireplace and WiFi extra boons.
We stayed at the cottage for 5 days in November and used it as a base for walking. There were only two of us which was perfect, 4 would be fine. 6 would be a squeeze. Everything there you would need, although some hot water bottles or an electric blanket would have been good. Probably not necessary in he summer months. An amazing location just a short hop to a stunning beach. An amazing island our second visit this year.
The electricity is not included in the price, I would rather pay more on the rental than await to see how much I will be charged after the stay. Location of cottage is perfect for a relaxing holiday and I would go back
We really enjoyed our stay - 2 adults, 2 teenagers - though if we'd used the third bedroom then the living room and particularly kitchen would have struggled for comfortable size. Well equiped with all items working although might have been nice to have a TV also (though for Colosay visitors in the summer this may not matter much). The wifi struggled to keep up with two teenagers but then the wifi on the island is generally poor compared to the spoiled mainland (are you listening Nicola?) Where our experience suffered a little had nothing to do with the cottage but surprisingly poor custome...more
Really love this cottage particularly the location. The bathroom is very dated and cold and certainly in need of an upgrade.
