Stunning views from the upstairs sitting room. A very spacious property with all mod cons. Ardfern and the surrounding area is ridiculously beautiful even when its raining
Stunning accommodation in a stunning location. Great place to stay with lovely views and lots of places to explore within the area. Very accommodating and knowledgeable host
We stayed at Stonefield cottage for the first week of Easter holidays and had a great time. Plenty of space for us, three kids and their grandparents plus a spaniel. The location was perfect and we really liked the fact that there was plenty to do in the area without venturing out to Oban. In fact, we were so glad we didn't stay too close to Oban. We spent one day walking at the canal, another day at Arduaine Gardens (brilliant day out for kids) and another day walking the dog at the shore of Craobh Haven and enjoying a good pub meal at the end of the day. All those places are within 10 - 20 min drive from the house. We had a rainy day one day so we went to the sea life sanctuary that day and another day was spent getting a ferry to Tobbermory, which we (including the dog) really enjoyed. The view from the upstairs lounge is so pretty and perfect place to relax at the end of a busy day. All in all, a brilliant accommodation and would highly recommend to families. Thanks!
We had the most relaxing 60th birthday getaway at Stronefield Cottage and I agree with some previous reviews, the pictures do not do this house justice. Even the drive there is simply breathtaking. The house is spotless and the kitchen has everything you could need. The owner is a joy to deal with, nothing is too much trouble. We forgot a board game and he kindly posted it back to us. There is a restaurant and village shop and we visited both. We even managed to book the local taxi driver who's details I got from the shop. Although the the restaurant is only a few mins walk away, one of our party would have had an issue walking back up the hill (plus it was chucking it down). A gem of a retreat.
Without doubt, Stronefield cottage is a wee gem of a place set in a beautiful location on the west coast of Scotland.The accommodation is perfect for a group of adults with all the home comforts one would expect to make the stay so memorable. My wife & I were joined by 2 friends who also were extremely impressed with the high spec of the accommodation & the facilities available in the village of Ardfern, all within a short walk of the cottage. We hope to make a return visit if we are lucky enough to get a booking - I suspect those who have experienced the quality of Stronefield will already have made plans & spread the word to friends & family.Many thanks to Bob G for presenting the property in such a fine manner - it really made our break so memorable!!

Our stay was blessed with fabulous weather and we enjoyed coming back from long expeditions (walks and visits to ancient sites), to relax in the upper room. We rattled around in the house and would have loved to have shared the experience with our daughters and their families. The property is big enough for 8 or 9, so maybe the next time if this can be arranged.
