  • "Really big place , but needs some money spending on it, only one mid size fridge ..."

    Really big place , but needs some money spending on it, only one mid size fridge freezer for 10 people, not great kitchen utensils , not much kitchen work space , beds could be more comfortable, no dryer , couldnt lock the front door from outside, ,allt jobs looked like done on the cheap or not finished, a general deep clean wouldn’t go a miss

  • "Everything was great with the house, just wee minor things like the utensils in the kitchen could be doing with being upgraded as knives and cheese grater were very blunt."

    No potato masher. A few cobwebs about but other than that everything was perfect. Scenery is beautiful, peaceful. I thought with it being a working farm we would be woke early but this was not the case. The dogs are very friendly and loved being around us all the time. Great holiday x

  • "The holiday was amazing great views with lovely walks all around."

    The only thing I would say is bring food with you. There are lots of cafes and a few restaurants but no large supermarkets to buy food at.

  • "Homestone Farm is a lovely, big house in a lovely spot."

    The owners are really friendly too. We would love to go back in the summer.

  • "The house was huge, there was plenty of space for us all."

    There was an ample supply of logs for the fire, and the sitting room was really cosy when the fire was lit. Nice to wake up to the gentle sound of the cows in the barn. The owners and their two delightful collies were friendly and were particularly kind in letting my teenage daughter help groom and have a little (led) ride on Dusty, it was the highlight of her holiday as it is not something she would usually get the opportunity to do. The house was well situated with lovely walks for the dogs on the doorstep and the beach walks are only a short drive away. There is lots to do and loads of wildlife to see, plenty of buzzards and deer. We were over the moon to see two Golden Eagles, and the seals in the sea at Southend were close enough to almost touch!

  • "Welcoming and warm atmosphere, local walks, friendly dogs and unlimited firewood!"

    We could not have asked for any more for our New Year stay. This was our second time at Homestone and it exceeded the great experience we had the first time round. What a great place to stay for a large group of friends or family!

  • "This holiday cottage provides the 'get away from it all' and relaxation that anyone could wish for."

    As a family we needed a home away from home and this ticked all boxes.

  • "A group of 11 Glaswegians and one dog spent an amazing week here over New Year and all our dreams came true - a fantastic experience!"

    The house itself is beautiful, always kept warm by the log fire and portable heaters, with 2 friendly farm dogs - 1 that will literally follow you anywhere! We were left to our own devices, but the owners were always on hand if we needed anything. I would recommend visiting the Springbank Whiskey Distillery for a tour in nearby Campbeltown (although the super-strength rum should come with a health warning!), as well as a trip by car (or bike as one of us did) to the outstandingly beautiful Mull of Kintyre. Cannot think of a single negative thing to say about our trip, would recommend to anyone and would love to back in the future.

  • "A lovely big house, and perfect for a large family with young children present."

    The views and location are excellent and the position makes it safe enough for the young ones to run by themselves for a while.

  • "Loved the fact that it was in the countryside, as we are all from Glasgow we are not really every in the countryside."

    Love that there are 2 friendly dogs outside the house all day and night.

About the location

CAMPBELTOWN

Tarbert 38 miles; Lochgilphead 50 miles.

Campbeltown is the Kintyre Peninsula's main town and is set in a deep bay, sheltered by Davaar Island, which can be reached by foot at low tide by a mile-long causeway, and the beautiful surrounding hills. In its heyday, the town boasted a vast fishing fleet and, allegedly, 34 whisky distilleries! Today, there are two single malts to be sampled in the town, from Glen Scotia and Springbank. Worth a visit are the Campbeltown Heritage Centre, housed in an old church, the Tartan Kirk, a very striking building which provides an interesting insight into its past history, and the 'Wee Picture House', the country's oldest working cinema and an Art Deco treasure! The town also offers a swimming pool and fitness suite. A few miles to the south is The Mull of Kintyre, made famous by Sir Paul McCartney's song, from where you can see the hills of County Antrim, Northern Ireland, only 12 miles away.
