“Lovely clean cottage”
Reviewed 18 May 2015 for a stay in May 2015

We had a lovely time staying in the cottage, which was all set up as requested for 5 single adults and a toddler in a proper cot, (not a travel cot which she would have outgrown). The weather was mixed so we didn't get our BBQ in the garden but walked along the front at Helensburgh, and traveled to Luss and Inverary for visits. A perfect location for exploring Argyll but also fine to accomodate travel after work from the central belt and collecting from Glasgow Airport and Central Station.
There was the unexpected benefit of wifi and a tv/ dvd player which was useful. I appreciated the spacious grassy fully fenced in garden and gate fencing off the driveway for our toddler.
We catered at home each night. Has a washing machine. Has a cafetiere. Fridge smallish so best to buy a few days' food at once, not a whole week for a big group. Being picky it could have done with another sharp knife and a wooden spoon to keep the new pans nice.
It was a great place to stay and we'd do the same again. Didn't know if our hosts had received our message about when we expected to arrive but all was well so I was glad we hadn't worried too much about it. Thank you to the kind owners.

“Fantastic location, warm and comfortable!”
Reviewed 21 February 2015 for a stay in February 2015

Wonderful cottage. Had everything we required and the cottage was very snug. Parking for 3 cars and a lovely garden top it all off. This cottage will easily sleep 7.
Will be using the cottage again. Just be aware you can't check in until 4/4.30pm.
Jamie.

My husband and I spent 5 nights here in May/ June 2014. A friend joined us for a few days. Other friends popped in for dinner. It felt like a home away from home - sleeps 5, well equipped. We hired a car. There is plenty to see and do in the area.

The cottage has good sized living room and bedrooms and was a very good base for us, within easy reach of Glasgow by train, but in a pleasant setting by the Clyde estuary. Kitchen is well equipped.

“Excellent Weekend”
Reviewed 1 October 2013 for a stay in September 2013

Just returned home after a brilliant weekend in Helensburgh visiting family.
The Cottage is just perfect in every way. It is very cosy and lovely and warm.
Just a short walk from the seafront, but still very quiet and peaceful.
Our two small grandchildren loved playing in the delightful garden.
We hope to return again.

Thank you so much Angela and Family.
