  • "The property was beautifully clean and the garden back and front was secure Parking for two vehicles The kitchen had everything you needed , pots n pans."

    Tin foil , washing up liquid etc which is very useful Beds were comfortable nice bedding sets/ towels The only thing that would be useful would be a garden umbrella for the sun ( we had amazing weather ) Would definitely recommend and would come back if we visit the area in the future

    Thanks Linda for your lovely feedback, totally agree about the sun umbrella as we had brilliant weather when you were here. Purchased one ☀️ Susan Property Owner

    It was very good of the owner to leave us a bottle of wine and packets of biscuits. The kitchen was really well equipped which makes a nice change from some properties which have the bare minimum. Overall we couldn’t fault the property and would definitely stay there again.

  • "Property really good on the whole."

    Bedroom sizeable and bed comfortable, bathroom great (nice to have choice of bath or shower). Kitchen a good size and well supplied. Spean Bridge was a great location with both easy and more demanding walks nearby. Property was spotlessly clean and everything had been thought of and provided. For the future, maybe a small DVD player for wet days (we knew there wouldn’t be one so plugged our own in which was fine.) Our only slightly negative thought was that lounge/ diner would be cramped and impractical if there were 6 people using it. Upstairs space would be fine for 6. Owners were helpful, friendly and accommodating. Lovely welcome gift, thank you.

    I would just like to say that when I have more than four guests I move out the dining table so guests can sit comfortably at the table, when there are only up to four guests I push the table backwards but it can easily be moved. The property does not have a DVD player. We are glad you enjoyed your stay in our property and hope to see you again. Property Owner

    Well equipped kitchen with virtually everything needed to cater for large hungry family. Washing machine was a bonus as meant outdoor activity clothes were washed. We were lucky as weather was fantastic so could dry washing on the clothes line. Although airer provided drying would have been difficult. Dish washer would have been nice but not essential. Nice extra touches including foil, cling film, Tupperware boxes, salt, pepper and cooking oil provided by owners helped make things easier as these are the things you only need a little of but either need to take it with you or buy and waste. We travelled by train to our holiday and used public transport as well as car while there. The cottage off road parking for 2 cars to rear which is helpful as front of property is on busy main road. Despite this traffic noise was not an issue. Local Bridge cafe does take out pizzas and fish suppers. Until 7pm. Local Spar was well stocked and not too expensive. The local restaurants were booked up so would recommend booking well in advance if you want to eat out in the village. Property is well placed for exploring area and I would consider booking again if planning trip to Spean bridge area again.

    For instance if you wanted to make a picnic there were plastic boxes, cling film and tin foil already to be used. I normally pack a box with all the bits that normally are not there in a holiday home otherwise I’m in a supermarket for bits a couple of times during a week. This time everything was there, so thanks that made life much easier. The cottage was cosy and warm to return on an evening in a week with not a lot of good weather. There is plenty of room for an adult group or a family and enough places to sit. That’s a bug bear of mine you can have a house that sleeps six but only four or five at dining table or in lounge sometimes which is no good when we have adult children and grandkids in tow. This house is great, very clean and modern. The location in Spean bridge means you can bob around a good bit touring different places but have a good base to return to each night. All in excellent, thank you.
