“Peaceful weekend away!”

Booked this cottage for a peaceful weekend away and was very pleased indeed.

The main area is open plan encompassing sittingroom with table and chairs, TV and soft seating area, and a kitchen with fridge freezer, washing machine, cooker, microwave and full kitchen utensils and crockery all supplied. Bathroom is beyond the bedroom area and is quite a good size with a good sized shower. Layout is great and for one or 2 people is perect.

Heating is GREAT! There is a heater is bathroom, sleeping area and lounge area and has such a nice cosy feel about the place at night with the soft lighting and flame effect on the fire. Blinds keep out the morning sun of your after a lie in too.

Cottage was supplied with everything we needed and was welcomed with tea and biscuits. Only thing we had to supply was our food as the place is more than equiped with everything you need. The bed was comfy and warm which was a bonus and more than anything is was clean and smelled so fresh!

We arrived on a beautiful sunny day so spent most of the night out on the patio that overlooks the marina - so beautiful and peaceful. At night it poured with rain (typical scottish weather) and the cottage remained really warm. There is a stream that runs at the side of the cottage and you can hear the running water if the window is open (such a nice sound) and you are surrounded by wildlife which too is just great.

In the evening this cottage has such a cozy feeling about it and really holds the heat. It was spotlessly clean and really could not fault it at all. The price we paid for 2 nights was £105 which I think is excellent vlue for money. The cottage is within the ground of a large house which you have to enter the drive of the house to access the cottage. We were a dit dubious about haveing our 'quiet weekend away' spoiled by having others nearby but we never saw or heard anyone.

There is a co-op nearby and some great restaurants and take aways. the cottage is supplied with a vast aray of menus, leaflets for day trips, tourist info, books, DVD's and some games.

Would definately visit again and the weather has not out us off one bit because there is nothing better then sitting all cosy in a lovely cottage listening to the rain and peace and quiet :)
