    • “An exceptional house in a lovely area”
    • tripadvisor rating
    • “We are so glad that we chose Nant Hall and will always remember this unusual and ultra stylish home. It could have seemed a little intimidating, with its immaculate appearance, huge windows, high ceilings and space; however, it was furnished to provide comfort as well as style and both house and garden displayed many humorous touches , the whole place demonstrating a real labour of love on the part of the owner / designer, who proved to be a kind and helpful neighbour. Having stayed in many holiday rentals, I particularly appreciated the quality of the bed linen and towels and the fact that the kitchen was fully kitted out and the bathroom spacious with loads of storage. I also found that the lighting was excellent and catered for all moods and needs. Although the house appeared (on photos and in reality) to be very open, with its huge windows, every bit of every window could be covered (stylishly) by blinds or curtains for privacy, if need be. The mountains in the middle distance were beautiful and every change in the weather gave a different perspective. Taynuilt is an excellent jumping off point for visits to a wide range of places of interest and in itself is an interesting village with plenty to occupy the visitor. However, if the weather discourages you from going out, it is absolutely no hardship to light the woodburner and stay indoors, pretending that this lovely home is yours!”

    • “Stunning beautiful cottage, Absolutely loved it!!!”
    • tripadvisor rating
    • “My husband and I travel around quite a lot and have stayed in numerous cottages, lodges, etc, This one literally took our breath away when we arrived, The cottage is stunning as is the surrounding area, It was absolutely immaculate inside, not a speck of dust to be found anywhere. Although this property is for two people the amount of space inside is amazing, We loved the huge log fire which we only needed to use twice due to the fantastic weather we had, we also found the bed super comfortable. Everything supplied in the cottage is top quality, the bedding, the towels and all furnishings. Coming home to this cottage after a hard days walking was an absolute pleasure. I relaxed in a hot bath while my hubby had the huge walk in shower, We loved cooking our own meals in the kitchen which had everything you could possibly need and then settling down at the dining table with views to the hills and the beautiful sun sets. You can tell this is a much loved home and a lot of love and effort has went in to make it the stunning place it is. Lots of lovely wee touches to make it extra special. There is so much to do in the area, many munros to conquer as well as cycle tracks and more gentle walking, we didn't have enough time to fit in everything we wanted to do. Thank you for a fantastic holiday, Loved every minute”

    • “An excellent base, very comfortable and a nice place to return to. It was ideally located for exploring the area.”

    Mr Shaw, Sheffield, October 2015

    • “Both the hubby and I Loved Nant Hall, it was so homely and of course we got to enjoy the view in the various stages of light throughout the day ... wow! It's not often you get the chance to just relax into a place but it is a habit we have started in Cornwall earlier this year and I am so glad we did, because it made for all the difference here, the colours alone on the mountains from sunrise to sunset were enough to take my breath away. Would I recommend it ... absolutely.”

    Miss Henderson, Jarrow, October 2015

    • “It was brilliant, the best accommodation we have had in all our holidays. Highly recommended by us.”

    Mrs Davis, Worksop, August 2015

    • “The property was beautiful. The décor reflected the owner; slightly eccentric and very imaginative in it's design and furnishing. It was extremely comfortable and versatile, warm when needed. The owner was very helpful and welcoming, providing plenty of information about the area, including walks, excursions and eating out. We could not fault it in any way. The cottage is in a wonderful area for those who like the outdoors, but close enough to Oban for visiting the outlying islands as well.”

    Mr Armitage, Sheffield, June 2015

    • “It was an amazing property, not your usual cottage. It was very peaceful and relaxing in a beautiful location. The weather was not good while we where there but it had everything you needed, so we put the wood burner on and chilled out.”

    Mrs Stubbs, Birmingham, May 2015

    • “The cottage was absolutely stunning and spotlessly clean, it had everything you could possibly need for a perfect holiday. The owners were lovely friendly people who were very knowledgeable about the surrounding area, should you need any advice or help. Loved this cottage and would love to return again.”

    Mrs McGovern, Glasgow, April 2015

    • “The accommodation at Nant Hall was excellent, and a perfect place for exploring the area. The owners were extremely friendly and gave us great recommendations of what to see and do, and we managed to do a lot due to the fantastic weather. Taynuilt was only a short walk away, and had a great butchers and friendly shop and we had a lovely meal in the Taynuilt Hotel. We would definitely return to Nant Hall and explore even more.”

    Mrs Fanning, Keswick, April 2015

    • “"Wow what a cottage" ! Everything about this cottage is 5 star, the furnishings are lovely, the shower great, the bed very comfortable and the kitchen has everything you need and more. Made to feel welcome from the start of holiday.”

    Mrs Jessop, Hull, July 2014

    • “The holiday accommodation was far superior to anything we had previously experienced - this was clearly someone's home and not just a 'holiday let'. We loved the location with plenty of garden, balcony and patio space for enjoying the mountain scenery.”

    Mrs Jones, Clitheroe, June 2014

    • “We loved our stay at Nant Hall. The house was beautiful and the surroundings idyllic. We will definitely be recommending this property and would love to stay there again.”
