The property

A cosy 18th century croft cottage in a secluded location, Lilybank Cottage is just a short drive from the nearby village of Kilfinan.

With an open log fire and sea views, this stylishly furnished cottage is perfect for a romantic getaway in the countryside or for families looking for a convenient base to explore the local area.

As well as comfortable and well-appointed double and twin bedrooms, the cottage also has the added benefit of a bright and airy first floor attic space with twin beds, which is ideal for older children and is accessed by a spiral staircase.

A spacious conservatory and wooden-lined sitting room both provide relaxing spaces for the family to enjoy after a busy day out, whether you want to watch some Freeview TV or just enjoy the beautiful views.

Outside there is plenty of parking on the driveway, and the well-kept private garden has a decking terrace and comfortable garden furniture, plus a view over the river which comes alive in the spring when it is covered in bright yellow daffodils.

The wildlife will be on your doorstep, with deer often seen close to the cottage, and you will love the various walks through the stunning countryside, including a path which follows the river at the side of the cottage.

The cottage is also well located to explore the rugged coastline and scenery of the Cowal Peninsula with many outdoor activities a stone’s throw away, such as sailing, fishing and golfing.

This delightful cottage is an ideal location for you to unwind and enjoy the country life in Argyll.

    We were asked to contact the owner/caretaker 24 hours beforehand to make arrangements for key collection; unfortunately we were unable to make contact. Contacted Sykes cottages as soon as possible on Sunday morning only to be told the cottage was not available. Oh dear, not a good time to be told. The rest of our party, two other couples were on their way north on the M6 when I had to contact them and ask them to stop until we had some further information. We were initially given two alternatives, neither of which were acceptable either through location or price. Sykes Cottages were doing their best to resolve the situation, but at this point we thought we would have no holiday. Eventually, after several hours of telephone conversations, Sykes Cottages said there had been some communication issues and we could proceed to our holiday cottage after all. As we had now been delayed from travelling for several hours we had to take a different route which entailed extra costs with a ferry crossing in order to reach the cottage before dark, where the cottage was left open for us due to the late hour. We do not know who was at fault with the communication but it led to a very stressful start to our holiday. All eventually resolved, the cottage was lovely and we had a good holiday.
