Booked a last minute holiday for myself and my partner over the Easter weekend. I`ve stayed at Craobh before during many family holidays during my youth and I`m pleased to report that Craobh hasn't changed! - The village still looks picture postcard perfect. Stayed in the Islay cottage - perfect size, cosy and spotlessly clean. The cottage is very well fitted out with everything that you could want or need in a holiday cottage- kitchen has all mod-cons and the cottage has broadband & freeview TV. The views from the front of the house are amazing -especially at sunset and the place is unbelievably quiet - Croabh isn't on a through road so there is virtually NO traffic on the road in front of the house.. Loads to do in the local area - this is the perfect base for exploring the west coast & islands.

“Best place to escape to - comfortable retreat amongst scenic seascapes, wonderful walks and gourmet grub.”

Craobh – one of the best places I know to ‘stop and smell the roses’ – to get away from it all, unwind and chill. It’s got everything – some of Britain’s most stunning scenery, filmic sunsets, an abundance of wildlife on sea, land and in the air, great walks and cycle trails, and a creelful of Europe’s freshest seafood within lip-smacking distance in quayside stalls, pubs and restaurants from Oban to Tayvallich and beyond.

We’ve been coming to Jura cottage for more years than we care to remember and it never disappoints. Cosy, comfortable and well-appointed, it welcomes us back like an old friend with a warm, familiar smile. Alison and Matthew leave no stone unturned in ensuring guests feel at home: from the personalised welcome on the fridge, fresh flowers and a fire set ready in the grate, to quality furnishings and kitchenware, and plenty of board games, DVDs and CDs just on the off-chance of a fine west highland mist. Perfect for a tranquil, comfortable, scenic escape.

I can’t agree with the guest whose only complaint (in the guest book full of helpful suggestions from previous guests about where to go and what to do) was the absence of a pizza cutter……Get real – eat local – wake up and smell the seafood, Homer; this is the west highlands!

The only complaint we ever have is having to leave at the end of the week.

“Just right in every way.”
Reviewed 30 September 2014 for a stay in September 2014

Jura cottage is by far the most comfortable self-catering experience we've had in Scotland. I believe that a holiday base is as,if not more, important than the area itself. I really wanted a place that felt a pleasure to spend time in as well as to explore from. Jura cottage was certainly that. It's luxurious without being fussy or precious. Every gadget or item that you might need has been anticipated and provided...(salad-spinner,anyone?..yep!) Proper large bath towels, extra bedding..I could go on.... No sign of cutting corners anywhere.
Especially lovely was the view from the front windows....Sitting up in bed in the morning and seeing the herons, the sea, the sky, the boats... Lovely indeed.
We had a few evening meals at the local pub and enjoyed the food ( try the mussels!) and the friendliness and the views.
I wasn't sure before we got there that I was going to like that Craobh Haven is a purpose built marina village fro the 80s.( I hadn't realised until after booking) But it's lovely and doesn't feel modern and characterless at all, just pleasant, pretty and peaceful.
All in all a perfect holiday break in comfortable luxurious accommodation in a beautiful location. We're already looking at when we can come back... Highly recommended.

“All the comforts of home with a most spectacular view of the Scottish Coast”
Reviewed 18 August 2014 for a stay in August 2014

We spent two wonderful weeks with our daughter and husband and two little grandsons in Jura cottage. Days were filled with welly walks, playing on the beaches and climbing rocks and hills. The west coast is beautiful whatever the weather and the cottage warm and welcoming - we enjoyed the open fire in the evenings. Everyone was sad to leave.

“Ideal getaway”
Reviewed 17 August 2014 for a stay in August 2014

I have just returned home from my second visit this year to Islay Cottage...which should indicate my complete satisfaction with this accommodation.
The cottage itself is very clean, comfortable and well equipped with beautiful views over Craobh Marina and the nearby islands.
I know the local area very well and spend time in this beautiful part of the west coast every year. I would thoroughly recommend Craobh Haven Cottages to anyone who wishes to visit this area....the fact that they are "dog friendly" is an added bonus.

“Perfect Holiday Cottage in Craobh Haven”
Reviewed 29 July 2014 for a stay in July 2014

The Craobh Haven holiday cottages are set in a beautiful marina and are very well equiped, and the best bit is you can bring your dog! We love to come and stay for a week every year and find the area very beautiful, especially last week as the weather was so amazing! Lots of great walks in the surrounding area (we especially like Tayvallich) and it is also worth a walk across the hill into Ardfern.

The cottages are always cleaned to an expectional standard and have everything you need. Thanks again for a lovely week.
Susanne.

“a delightful cottage in a lovely area.”
Reviewed 1 July 2014 for a stay in June 2014

The cottage is excellent- clean well equipped and with views over the harbour.
It is so quiet here you sleep well.
Craobh Haven is a beautiful place and if you want to get away from it all this is the place to go.
We drove around the immediate area , there is little traffic.
Craignish peninsular and Knapdale are both worth driving around.
Loch Awe is not as there are too many trees blocking the views!
The lord of the Isles pub - meals are expensive.
