  • "Cottage very clean and warm."

    Toilet flush requires attention, as noted by several people over the years. Kitchen cold tap water pressure over-enthusiastic. Cooker very outdated. Wallpaper in bathroom is peeling.. Location very peaceful. Overall, we had a decent stay but we were a little disappointed, as we expected better from your company. This was our first experience of Sykes and we had high hopes that weren’t realised.

  • "The coach house was a lovely little cottage,very clean with a comfortable bed within a close walk to town center,we absolutely loved it and would definitely go there again."

    If I had to find fault ,there seemed to be a issue with the front door trying to unlock/lock it the water pressure coming from the tap in bathroom was very low but these are minor issues and absolutely loved our stay ..Thank you

  • "Great location, we had a great holiday exploring Oban and surrounding islands."

    Our expectations were realistic about what to expect from the cottage because of the cost. Kitchen needs refurbished, utensils were lacking, no sharp knife for chopping, no potato peeler, pans very poor etc. Mattress was very hard and uncomfortable. Front door difficult to use.

  • "Lovely location."

    The cottage has everything you need. Bed was a bit too hard for us but that's personal preference. Hot water wasn't quite enough to run a hot bath, even after having the boiler on boost. The shower did work lovely so this made up for it. The cottage was a lovely cozy place to settle down with plenty to see around Oban and the immediate surroundings. We enjoyed our stay!

    Its got everything you need and is located on a quiet side road. The storage heating is very warm upstairs and in the kitchen but not so much in the lounge/dining section. Would I go again ? definitely. Thank you Alan n Wendy.

  • "Location and parking were good."

    Cottage very dated and tired. TV reception and Internet signal were poor. Handle of fryingpan very lose. Cups and plates don't match. Stairs dangerous due to no proper hand rail. (Health and Safety risks). The bathroom and kitchen need updating. (It is very basic with no investment being put back into the cottage).

The property

The Coach House is a homely, detached cottage, dating back to 1800, in the stunning town of Oban, Argyll and Bute.

With its characterful features and its great location, this is the perfect break for couples looking to explore the delights of Scotland with their four-legged friends.

Benefit from off-road parking to the side of the property, before stepping into the cottage, to be greeted by the well-appointed kitchen with all the equipment to set you up for your holiday.

The living/dining room is an inviting space, complete with beamed ceilings, a dining table, an electric fire, plush seating and a TV, the perfect spot to cosy up after a day of adventure or enjoy a meal as a two.

The garden is also designed for an alfresco affair, complete with bistro furniture to gather around as the sun sets.

The ground floor is complete with a stylish bathroom, housing both a bath and a shower.

When sleep calls, locate the double bedroom, spacious and complete with wooden units, before awakening to another day of exploration.

Why not start your morning with a visit to the Atlantis Leisure Centre to take advantage if it's many facilities and swimming pool.

Continue to the town for a bite to eat, offering a fine selection of pubs, restaurants, and shops, including Kebabish of Oban, Taste of Argyll Kitchen, and BAAB, all dotted across the marina.

The Oban Distillery, a cinema and the War & Peace Museum are also nearby, ideal for adding to your itinerary.

Head north to tour the magnificent exterior of Dunstaffnage Castle and Chapel, or board an Etive Boat Trip up to Loch Etive, offering beautiful views and the chance to try your hand at wildlife spotting.

The bustling town comes in a rather secluded location, with Fort William within driving distance, home to the West Highland Museum, a selection of eateries and amenities to take advantage of, and the opportunity to hike up Ben Nevis, the highest peak in Britain, whilst Loch Lomond & The Trossachs National Park is also within proximity, a recommended stop off for outdoor enthusiasts.

Spend quality time with your loved one at The Coach House.
