We stayed in Angely only for three nights. Unfortunately, because we could have enjoyed ourselves on Arran much longer, it is a very nice island.
The house itself was very nice. It was very modern and everything you might ever need was there. The bed was very comfortable. There was a nice private terrace to sit outside.
The only pity I think was that it could have been cleaned a bit better, for example the toilet seat.
Travelled with 3 kids aged 13,11, 7. The lodge was great, new, modern, neutrally but nicely decorated. Kitchen fully equipped, fantastic shower and bath - which coupled with a big TV and Wi-Fi is all that out family needs after several hours of walking. 2 toilets also essential for anyone with teens! Great pillows and very quiet place so excellent night sleep as well and p!enty of room for us all despite relatively compact size - it felt bigger. 15 minute walk to the Blackwaterfoot and only few miles away from 2 best easy type walks to Murchie stones and Kings cave. Very good cafe at Murchie Bay but take plenty cash as no easy access to cash pont and no one takes cards. All in all - extremely pleased with our choice. There may be bigger and more luxurious properties but for a few days stay - this has everything you will need and much more. Alan, the owner also texted to check we were OK which was very nice. I would advise a car but can be done without for active minded.
We've just returned from our first visit to Arran and a brilliant stay at Angely. It was our first trip away with our daughter and it was like a home from home. It's lovely and modern and very comfortable. There was everything we needed and more kitchen appliances than I have at home! The views are gorgeous and it was so peaceful. Can't wait to go back in the summer and have bbq's out on the decking. And we definitely will be going back. I can't imagine staying anywhere else now when we visit arran
The lodge has everything you need and more, really well equipped. It is clean, nicely decorated and has just enough bits and pieces to make it feel cosy & homely. The bedrooms are small but for a week away it's no bother. The communication from owners was great & they even checked all was ok on arrival etc.
Blackwaterfoot is a quiet little village, the local tiny shop has a brilliant range of products and the hotel does lovely food. You are only 20mins from the busier Brodick, Lamlash & Whiting Bay as well.
We were there with our dogs so mostly focused on walking; and there is no lack of that, some amazing walk with views to die for! Kings Cave is dog heaven as is round the Cock of Arran, the Glenashdale Falls is a fabulous walk too. Only tiny down side for us was there is no enclosed garden (I knew that though when I booked) and nowhere right on your doorstep for early morning/last thing walks. Dog owners, don't forget this is tick country big time, so FrontLine your dogs before you come & check every night.
Great cottage/lodge with all that's needed for a lovely week away.
