High Wards was our chosen venue to celebrate my husband's birthday and it certainly didn't disappoint.
16 adults were blown away by how spacious, luxurious and well equipped the house was. Definitely an ideal location for a party or just to relax in the tranquil surroundings.
We would highly recommend this beautiful house to anyone looking for that "somewhere special place" whatever the occasion.
Emily the owner was there to welcome us and she couldn't have been more helpful.
A real treat!

“Fantastic Hen Weekend”
Reviewed 24 March 2015 for a stay in March 2015

people found this review helpful

Stayed at the Highwards for two nights in March for my hen weekend. Wish we could have stayed longer. The house is fabulous and very well equipped. So hard to decide which bedroom to stay in. Every bedroom has an en suite apart from one which had a bathroom next door to it which is just as good as an en suite. We were a large group of 21 and found the house very spacious with lots of things to do. Enjoyed my morning swim and thereafter lounging around the pool. There are two large fridges and a large freezer which provided more than enough room for all our food and drink. There was also an ice maker which came in very handy. The dining area in the kitchen is ideal for a large group with another dining area in the conservatory. The grounds are very spacious and would be great in the hot summer weather. The view is spectacular. We booked Lomond Beauty who came and provided massages and treatments which we all enjoyed. We used Chimes Chinese restaurant nearby and they were very helpful with our large order and delivered to the house no problem.

The owner Emily met with us when we arrived and she was very helpful and made us feel very welcome. Really recommend the Highwards and look forward to returning at some point in the future.

Had a fantastic weekend at High Wards to celebrate several family birthdays. House was fabulous and had everything you need for a perfect break. Fun for all ages with the swimming pool, toy cupboard and pool table. Extremely high standard of accommodation, well maintained and exceptionally clean. Look forward to going back in the future.

“Fantastic house, stunning views”

We celebrated my Husbands 50th birthday here with all the family, 23 of us! We had the most amazing time. The house has everything you could possibly need, The bedrooms are fabulous as are the kitchen and other living rooms. The great room is amazing and the views are absolutely stunning. Everybody had the best time and the house has such a homely feel to it. The heated pool and the pool table were brilliant and kept everyone amused. Emily was so helpful from the booking process right up till we arrived. Can't wait for another family celebration to have a reason to return. Highly recommend.

“Family Celebration and 70th Birthday”

We (our sons and their children and wives) had an amazing and very memorable stay at High Wards. It did not disappoint in any way. On arrival it was warm, welcoming and was like a gift that keeps on giving!. Every door we opened led to a pool room , enormous sitting room with stupendous views or a swimming pool or a sumptuous bedroom or children's playroom and of course the heart of the house, a huge well equipped kitchen.
It is well located and we were all able to access the wonderful landscape that we looked upon everyday.
Have already recommended it to friends
