This cottage is lovely: nice and spacious for our family of four, spotlessly clean, good quality fixtures and fittings with lots of equipment for home cooking if required. The photos do not do it justice! The real fire was also a bonus on cool evenings, especially with the kids! We saw an abundance of wild birds and red squirrels on the decking. The woods and burn at the back of the house provided endless entertainment for the kids. The owners live on site and were extremely friendly and helpful when required. It's worth noting that it is a bit of a treck to get anywhere (single track road for 20-30 minutes in either direction to a main road) but that makes it all the more appealing as it is lovely and quiet. Despite the rain, we explored lots of the west coast. The Crinan trail was a pleasant surprise, giving the most amazing views over the Sound of Jura. And Oban and Inveraray are worth a visit. I'd definitely recommend this cottage to families or couples who enjoy the outdoors.

Wonderful location close to a beautiful Loch.. We love wildlife and had Red Squirrel and Pine Martin visiting the garden. This is a wonderfully quiet and remote location.

Stunning location stunning facilities however the water is not drinkable as not properly treated and the wifi is barely usable and the 13miles of single track road to get there is a nightmare however having said all that it adds to the charm of the location and the views are exceptional we had some rain but mainly through the night and was able to get out and about everyday.. The owners were brilliant and made us feel very welcome. All in all an excellent holiday would highly recommend it

Great little cottage in a beautiful location.. Surrounding historic site is a must see, also saw abundant wild life from the elusive red squirrel to deer and even a weasel. Great place if you want peace, quiet and tranquillity. Beautiful drives around Argyll, very scenic. Will definitely be back.

Lovely holiday home, very comfortable with everything you could wish for.. The single track lane leading to the property was 'interesting' to drive; but is due to be resurfaced shortly which will help. We would certainly return!!!

Lovely cottage in pretty much the middle of no where. Owner was very friendly and helpful. Cottage is nice and small yet plenty of room for a family of 4 (2 adults and 2 kids, one 3 years other 7 months). Nice fully equipped kitchen and living space with a lovely log burning fire. Nice big master bedroom with loads of room and a big twin room perfect size for 2 kids. Garden is nice and big and perfect for 2 kids to run around in. In the evenings it catches the setting sun and is a lovely sun trap on the decking. Would highly recommend and love to stay there again, so peaceful and quiet.

Very good cottage with everything that was needed including a bike shed.. Location is off a single track road so to get anywhere you must be prepared to drive a minimum of 20 minutes to get onto a main road car essential.
Mrs Stewart

It is a little bit out of the way on a narrow country lane with passing places but if you don't mind that it's all good..

Set by the shore of Loch Awe this cottage is tucked away just off the single track road, it's about 30 minutes drive to Lochgilphead but well worth it. The cottage has a lovely large lounge area that commands a large corner sofa & dining table with french doors onto a decking area with table & chairs perfect for an evening meal looking out over the loch. The owner came and introduced herself shortly after our arrival and explained that the cottage was on a private water system, this means that even with filtering the water sometimes looks slightly brown due to peat, but she provides 2 bottles of spring water & a welcome basket of shortbread goodies & a vase of flowers. The cottage is well stocked with DVDs, jigsaws, books & games suitable for families and a number of information leaflets. The kitchen is well stocked with all the essentials. we had dinner in the cottage on a couple of occasions and had no problems with having the utensils we needed, the kitchen also boasts a dishwasher & washer. This is a great base for exploring from if you don't mind a drive around we visited, Isle of Bute, Arron, Mull of Kintyre, Oban and had a boat trip out to the Corryvreckan whirlpool - trips from Ardfern where there is a post office/general store which is the closet shop to the cottage.

The cottage was a real home from home. There were flowers in a vase, biscuits and fresh eggs waiting for us when we arrived. The information pack was very helpful, as were the various leaflets of local attractions. We felt that it was good value for money. The whole process of choosing the right cottage and booking was uncomplicated.

Ms Butler

Cottage and location were excellent. Very quiet retreat. No good if you want to socialise as its 8 miles to nearest pub! Perfect holiday for us though, great for walking, resting, peace and quiet!
December 2009
Lovely well equipped, very comfortably furnished cottage with beautiful setting and lovely views as well as the most delightful hosts. Host family children played for ours with ours. Only slight downside for us, was that is was a bit more cut off than we would like - with a 25 mins car journey just to reach the main road, and start to go anywhere, which limited our opportunities to make the most of the sightseeing in the area.
December 2009
We had no problems with booking or route planning, cottage was spotlessly clean, owners left us some special treats which was a nice touch. attractive location. We enjoyed fishing and pony trekking and sight seeing,one minor drawback was long drive down single track road, but would not stop us from going back again
December 2009
This property was just like home from home. All equipment required for a relaxing stay. Onwers who live next door are very friendly and helpful Fresh eggs from hens roaming the garden. Property very isolated but the comfort and peacefulness more than made up for this. If you want a holiday away from it all with fine views but with all the mod cons you would not be dissapointed if you stayed here. Thank you to the owners for making us feel so welcome
