“Comfy Weekend stay”
Reviewed 4 December 2017 for a stay in December 2017

Spent 2 days at the Cottage at the beginning of December with wife and Grandson. Excellent stay in this little gem of a place. Very warm and comfy and compact layout with 2 bedrooms and all the utilities you need for a home from home stay. 5 Mins drive to the town centre with all its amenities (restaurant, bars etc).

Caroline is a fantastic host and the joining instructions and directions were 1st class.

Would highly recommend.

“Beautiful hidden gem”
Reviewed 29 September 2017 for a stay in September 2017

My girlfriend and I stayed here for two nights and were absolutely delighted with the cottage. A clean, well laid out, well equipped and cozy little home for a couple of weary travellers looking for a little bit of comfort before returning to the grind of work. The welcome basket full of essentials was greatly received and eliminated the need to hit the shops before arrival. A great base for a couple of days sight seeing in and around Oban. Will most definitely be back and recommending to friends and family!

“What a gem!!!”
Reviewed 12 September 2017 for a stay in September 2017

What a find! Really nice 2 bedroom bungalow with private parking for two cars.. Spacious, comfortable, spotlessly clean and well-equipped. Lovely bathroom with great shower. Nice little garden/ patio area to sit out if it's fine.
Situated a mile out of town in a quiet cul-de-sac just off the main road which was perfect for us. Getting into Oban was easy - short downhill walk in & 5 minute taxi ride back if you dont want to take a car into town. Great communication from Caroline who is very attentive. Her attention to detail was great and the welcome basket was a lovely touch. Highly recommended!
