“Wonderful Location”
Reviewed July 21, 2018 for a stay in July 2018

The cottage is clean, fairly comfortable and well equipped. The wifi was perfect; local phone coverage is very patchy so this is a tremendous asset. You can sit beside a charming stream outside the cottage or take a short walk to Loch Awe, which is unfailingly lovely. It is a great jumping-off point for trips to the many beautiful locations nearby. The cottage is usually quiet, naturally dark and cold but potentially cosy, however we had to pay a surcharge for electricity despite doing not much cooking and using only the heated towel rail. The weather was unusually good when we were there, so the extra for the electricity could mount up; the best option is to pay to fuel up the log burner.
The cottage would be ideal for an older/retired couple at almost any time of year.

We are glad our guests enjoyed their stay. Most guests in summer do not exceed the free electricity allowance of £15 per week but the cottage s equipped with many heating options to suit winter needs so the choice is left to the guest and excess paid at cost against meter readings. We supply logs for the stove free of charge.

“Lovely cottage for two in a perfect location”
Reviewed July 6, 2018 for a stay in June 2018

We stayed at North Lodge Cottage for 4 nights. The cottage is exactly as it looks in the pictures. The best bit was sitting by the stream in the garden watching birds and dragonflies. The cottage is well equipped and comfy. It is very quiet. The weather was very hot but the cottage stays cool due to the thick walls and the surrounding trees but you only have to step out into the garden to enjoy the sun and heat. Argyll is beautiful and quiet. Its a great base if you like wildlife and bird watching. We saw a beaver at Knapdale (just 20 minutes drive). If you like history, Kilmartin has hundreds of standing stones, cairns, a fort and more within a 5 mile radius. We took a day out to Oban, which is bustling compared to the rest of the region! We look forward to visiting North Lodge again.

“Peaceful location”
Reviewed July 3, 2018 for a stay in June 2018

The cottage is well equipped in a delightful riverside location. The Wi-fi and sky television reception were excellent. This is an ideal location for a relaxing away from the crowds holiday. Plus excellent communications from the owner, including a telephone call to check we were happy.

“Perfect cottage for a couple in magical location”
Reviewed April 6, 2018 for a stay in April 2018

The cottage is situated beautifully on a flowing river that leads to stunning Loch Awe. We arranged for fly fishing lessons with a local provider and did day trips to Islay, Oban and the Isle of Seil. There is also a beautiful area for walks in the Knapdale forest where you can go on the Scottish beaver trail and try to spot beavers. Really worth doing!
Even in winter, the cottage is warm with the fire going and adequate heaters. It was snowing when we were there which was beautiful to see. Comfy bed and a kitchen with everything you need to self-cater.

“Cosy cottage, quiet, peaceful, river views, homely.”
Reviewed December 26, 2017 for a stay in December 2017

We loved this cottage, very warm, been restored 24 years ago. Good large log store, and beautiful walks from the village of ford up through the pine forests. Comfy bed, log burner, bring some of your own wood too that is dry to enable quick burning. This cottage is used by the family who own it. Lots of books to read, cd player, tv and sky. Lots of beautiful pictures painted by the owner, my favourite being the view of a loch opposite fire. There is a parking space right on the side of the cottage and the other side is the river that runs under the road. Directly opposite is the old entrance to the estate. Ford has a hotel and a church and walks are described in the information at the cottage. The cottage would benefit from a new back door in the kitchen and some gentle modernising to improve certain features. We loved the christmas decorations, the seating and the rustic tones of the interior. All in all we were warm and happy and will come back to this area, as its beautiful.

We thank our guests for their review and are glad that they enjoyed their stay. We have taken a careful note of those items which they mention and will give a careful consideration to their suggestions.
We have examined the old back door and the it is in good condition apart from where the old catch had to be removed. We are currently seeking a period replacement. The original lock does not give adequate security hence the temporary bolts. These are an inconvenience and we will soon complete the repair.
The guests told us before their visit they would be bringing some of their own logs to start the fire. Our wood is split seasoned hardwood which can be lit from kindling obtained by splitting a log with the small axe provided and the assistance of a fire lighter or your own favourite method. Hardwood is a cleaner burn with less damage to the flue and a greater heat output.
Thanks again to our guests.
