Plenty of lounging space and dining kitchen would easily accommodate 6. Stairs not suitable for anyone with mobility issues. Outside parking easy and only 5 minutes walk into centre.

There is plenty room, definitely more than we thought there would be, especially when you see it from the outside. Abigail was very swift with her responses when we had questions and always more than happy to help. The walks in the surrounding area are absolutely fantastic, one of which is Puck's Glen that is right on the doorstep which is a beautiful gorge walk with a stunning waterfall. We live in Scotland ourselves (up in Morayshire) but this was an excellent little getaway, exactly what we were needing for my wife and I plus our dog loved it too! Thanks Abigail!

Parking is straight outside. A co op 3 minutes walk away. Town centre 5 minutes walk. It's so quiet. Bute is beautiful. Loads of beaches and woods. Definitely one of the best places we have ever been.
