This was a lovely stay. The farm is gorgeous, the rooms were large and very comfortable with beautiful attention to detail. Our host, Sheila, was lovely and looked after our needs well. Balloch was just the most beautiful town. I agree with Sarahlou70 that the drive through the housing is deceiving and once you drive in the farm gates............well it...

Sheila is a wonderful host and has a beautiful farmhouse building which is a joy just to sit in and enjoy looking at the place, but she also recommended a restaurant (the Tullie Inn) which was just the sort of thing we were looking for. There's a double room with a small room next to it and a bathroom connected...

The farm is a lovely BndB, located just on the outskirts of Balloch, within 20 mins walk to the main train station. Sheila and George are wonderful hosts that will make you feel welcomed and at home. The rooms are very nicely but simply decorated and the Stable, where we stayed has also a small fridge and a kettle. There...

We were happy to discover this bed and breakfast. We had a comfortable nights stay in the double suite like room, in fact we had one of the best night's sleep there.
