We had a fabulous stay in Lower Cooperage. The staff couldn’t have been more helpful. We had booked another property and Margaret actually contacted us shortly afterwards and suggested that Lower Cooperage might be more suitable as our son was on crutches following a skiing injury. Olwyn welcomed us and made us feel really special. A fantastic place to chill but also plenty of things to visit on the area. The quality of the property was excellent and the crockery Denby was delightful and plenty of it. A truly fantastic break. We will be back !
This was our first time at Melfort Village. The setting was beautiful and the surroundings peaceful. The reception staff were so welcoming and helpful. We hired the garden cottage and it was great. Comfortable and clean with plenty of room. We loved our time at Melfort and there was so much to do. Will definitely be back!
Old Haybarn is centrally placed and has easy access to the facilities of the village. The cottage layout works very well - the kitchen is light and bright and the upstairs sitting room is cosy with the wood panelling and log burner. Good sized bedrooms and bathrooms - would recommend!
Very pleasant cottage. Cosy and warm, enjoyed having log burner on but not essential for heat. On-site restaurant pleasant and welcoming, good food, reasonable priced. Music night on Monday evening well worth attending, local musicians as well as some regular holiday makers playing and singing folk songs. Located in quiet area, good for walking with our dogs.
We have been to Melfort for nearly 25 years now, Twenty years as owners. So thought we would add an extra week to our usual holiday. It’s surprising just how much we have missed in the past. Found many new places to visit. Weather good, only one problem....the midges!! They really did not like me this year. But not to worry plenty. Of ideas, and advice from staff in reception. Melfort is simply heaven on earth. Fabulous scenery, beautiful well equipped cosy cottages, with facilities for all the family...kiddies play areas (both indoors and out, swimming pool, gym. Paddock and toys f...more
The property was rented to use on a "bed and breakfast" basis as we were spending most of our time with friends in another Melfort property. The accommodation was excellent: a spacious kitchen/dining area which could be divided from the living room with sliding doors; a reasonably sized living room; 2 generous bedrooms; an upstairs bathroom and a downstairs shower room. Altogether, a very comfortably sized and equipped 2 bedroom unit. The only criticism concerns the usage/cost of electricity. As we were only spending limited periods of time in the house and were only using 1 bedroom, signif...more
A great time to regenerate. Ever so peaceful. The reception staff and other personnel went out of their way to help us. A great place for visiting the surrounding area. Thank you
Beautiful setting well equipped cottage very helpful staff. The only gripe was the cottage smelt of wet dog!!
Stayed in Farm Cottage 3. Very spacious well equipped cottage. Top quality fixtures and fittings. Loved the open fire. Kindling, coal and logs readily available to buy at reception. All staff we encountered were so friendly and helpful. Lovely meal at Shower of Herring restaurant on site. Great music night with local musicians again in the Shower of Herring . We loved our holiday in Melfort Village. A peaceful and beautiful setting. Home with batteries recharged! Hope it won’t be too long till we return!
Had a wonderful week in melfort village location was great beautiful cottage with log burning stove perfect for winter evenings and great facilities on site would definitely return !!
Stay up in wall garden could do with climbing frame up that area swing and swing ball was great we all love it hope to come back soon staff great please let me know if at anytime there offer on thanks
Melfort Village provided us with accommodation suitable for our group of 6 adults, 2 babies and 2 dogs. The area was good for exercising the dogs although accessing the 'beach' in the bay is not as easy as the site info suggests. The Mews accommodation was well equipped and cots and stair-gates were provided as requested. We didn't dine in the on-site restaurant but we did order a substantial carry-out dinner which was very good. On the one day when the weather was poor we had an eying meal in the nearby Loch Melfort Hotel which was also very good. The swimming pool etc was a bonus especia...more
Nice property in nice location We have now stayed in Walled Garden 10,6 and 2.and feel that the fridge/freezer is not big enough. An ideal place for a new large fridge/freezer would be in the broom cupboard on the left side of the cooker. We are both looking forward to staying in Melfort Village again next year.
Been an owner and visitor to Melfort for many years, but have always looked longingly at these beautiful cottages simply for their isolation and the superb views they have over the huge sea loch of Melfort. We were also very lucky that we had a mostly dry week and the sun shone for us (albeit rather chilly). The cottage was lovely and had everything we needed with 2 new beautiful bathrooms ( one on each level, perfect) A fantastic farmhouse kitchen And 3 big bedrooms. ( the third of which had two full size set of bunk beds) A huge back and side garden was ideal for dogs and young chil...more
very good holiday the cottage contained everything you would need very comfortable good location will visit again
What a lovely place, staff, accommodation all exceptional. Very relaxing time we had but there is plenty to do. Walks, swimming, games room, tennis, putting (when the weather picks up). Lovely meals at the Shower of Herring. Can’t really go wrong.. We will definitely return.
We loved this cottage for its accessibility and the lovely views from the french windows. My husband has limited mobility so parking by the door and no stairs were essential advantages. The only drawback was the somewhat cramped bathroom space.
we will look out for another deal as it was such good value. this is a lovely part of Argyll and you have a lovely view of the loch from the house.
Melfort Village a great location for visiting many interesting places - Crinan, Tayvallich, Tarbert, etc House had a great lochside view and we.were very impressed with customer service - caring and thorough.
An excellent news cottage with beautiful views lots to visit in the area staff very friendly and helpful and an excellent restaurant
Stables East is a comfortable cottage and well equipped. Staff at Melfort Village were helpful. Swimming Pool and Games Rooms were great for kids on wet days.
Melfort Village is in a beautiful part of Scotland and for self caterers all supermarkets are available in Oban just 25 mins away. For Diamond Resorts customers it is the perfect place to holiday with your dogs as extensive and secure dogs play area on-site and many walks including a loch for swimming just 20 mins walk away. The walled garden is perhaps getting a little tatty round the edges due to its age but a coat of paint would soon bring this up to standard. Electricity needs to be paid extra and the night storage heaters are not efficient but these are the only down points.
Stayed for 2 nights in coachmans east cottage, tranquil and well equipped. Shower of Herring restaurant was good, and Kat and her team do an excellent job.
A truly beautiful location and all staff were very friendly and informative and pointed out a number of local attractions that we would otherwise have missed. The lodge was well laid out and the kitchen had everything you could need, and the beds were very comfortable.However some of the carpets are starting to show their age and maybe consideration should be given to looking into this. Would definitely stay there again.
We enjoyed our stay at walled garden. The accommodation is situated at a quiet location and is well equipped. There are numerous interesting things to do or to see in the beautiful part of Scotland.
We visited for Mums birthday in March there were 4 of us plus one dog. The accommodation was lovely and comfortable and not too far from the main buildings. I visited the pool two mornings and really enjoyed the facilities. It is a great base for exploring the West of Scotland with some beautiful scenery . We had a takeaway from the restaurant and it was delicious and well worth a try.
Everything in cottage and village is superb. Highly recommend cottage for couple or small family. We will return!
Our week in melfort village was amazing. We stayed in coachmans west, it was well furnished and had everything to make our holiday perfect. The grounds were immaculate and the facilities for.the dogs were great.The staff were friendly and nothing was too.much trouble. Views were superb. Will definitely return.
Fabulous quiet spot with brilliant views and a Scottish river (decent sized babbling brook) adjacent to the garden. Very dog friendly place and a decent bar and restaurant. Couldn't ask for more.
Thoroughly enjoyed our stay again. Accommodation is lovely and Melfort Village is in a beautiful part of Scotland.
This was our fourth stay at Melfort Village and, like the previous 3 visits, it was superb. Over the years we have exchanged into very many timeshare properties all round the world and this is, by some distance, the best of them all. The units are excellent, the staff are friendly and welcoming and the area is beautiful.
Very comfortable and spotlessly clean 2 storey mews apartment. We were at the end so had the added bonus of extra windows which gave so much more light. Velux windows on the roof also make the living area very bright. Fully equipped open plan kitchen including cleaning materials and bin bags. Ate 2 nights at the Shower of Herring restaurant on site, the food was very good as was the host Kat. All the staff at the village were most helpful and also provided a shower seat for my elderly mum. we will be back
