Lovely 6 night stay at the Stable apartment for a trip to Colonsay. Very comfortable beds slept so soundly. Had everything we needed and spacious too, great location for exploring the area. Very fitting of the period but could do with some freshening up of painted areas, albeit a very clean apartment. Wish Gardens were open to residents more than just the allocated 2 days at set times just so kids could enjoy some outdoor space of a summers evening.
Enjoyed the peace and tranquility of the well equipped apartment - comfy beds and views to idyllic countryside and beautiful gardens. Sampled home cooking in the cafe, friendly hospitality and excellent food at the Colonsay Hotel. Walked every day and found the island a welcome respite after the last 18 months. Icing on the cake to hear both the cuckoo and corncrake.
The house was tastefully decorated and furnished and very clean. Stunning location but down a mile long track, 4x4 vehicle adviseable. Kitchen very well equipped. Short walk to beach which on a sunny day was paradise, water and beach so amazingly clean. The only obvious thing lacking was an external tap/hose pipe to clean beach gear, wetsuits etc. Not cheap, but you pay for what you get.
Being weathered- in unexpectedly we were very lucky to find this flat. Having flown in ourselves we had no mode of transport but the extremely helpful and kind owners collected us and we stayed in this special place within beautiful gardens.
Superb location. Well presented, equipped and comfortable cottage. Only downside was extremely poor condition of access track. Had to leave our car at top of track and walk the half mile to the cottage because we were concerned about puncturing our tyres on the very rough ground
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.
A very relaxing stay, lovely comfortable well appointed accommodation, a good place to stay on Colonsay
Due to Covid our party was reduced to four people therefore we had plenty of room! All rooms were of an excellent standard and the the kitchen was very well fitted out. Sitting in the sun in the garden (faces South) was a real pleasure. We have booked again for next year when we hope the rest of our family from Belgium will be with us.
An excellent cottage in a prime location. The sun shone and the cottage had everything we needed and everything worked!
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.
Apart from the company of Brown Rats and a dodgy stove, our stay was all we expected. Grass mown twice was really appreciated.
A very compact kitchen,but well equipped.The remainder of the flat was comfortable. The location above Colonsay gardens and near the woodland was excellent.
Very comfortable and roomy house perfect for family or celebratory gatherings. Fireplace and WiFi extra boons.
The cottage is situated in woodland, but despite there being clear areas around the property, very little sunshine managed to brighten up the cottage. Inside the lighting was dim and also felt slightly damp despite having the use of central heating that was charged on a pay as you go basis. We visited the island in July so there were plenty of flies buzzing around outside the property leaving us being unable to open the windows. Every time we opened the door the flies were there itching to get inside. The property was adequate for our purposes ie furniture and kitchen equipment, but we w...more
What a lovely cottage in a beautiful location. Plenty of room for 6 people and a well equipped kitchen. We'd go back.
We had a lovely week in Colonsay especially due to the good weather. The accommodation was basic but value for money. Next time we will try and book a property with more of a view/outlook and a breeze from the coastline to try avoid the swarming flies and midges that tend to be worse inland.
Wonderful location, nice fenced garden, well equipped house, comfortable enough. One bathroom with hot water which is on a economy timer (so can come on in early hours of morning and wake you up), not quite enough hot water for our family of 4 (2 teenagers though!). Washing machine in cupboard in master bedroom. An outdoor tap for washing off wetsuits would be ideal - but there was a water shortage on the island whilst we were there and water needed to be used sparingly in any case. Additional cost for any electricity used in excess of £20. Attention is needed to dust behind the beds but r...more
This was my first stay in Kennels of any kind, and I was impressed. The cottage was pleasant, comfortable and well equipped, though the bathroom was rather basic and chilly. We particularly appreciated the quality of the beds and bedding, especially as the weather was unseasonably cold. The cottage was very private, but rather enclosed by the tall reeds across the burn. Our dog appreciated the blanket provided which gave an extra layer of warmth and comfort, especially as the floor was uncarpeted apart from the rug.- very practical for humans having an outdoorsy holiday, but he feels holid...more
