About the property

One bedroom, beautiful traditional cottage

Cnocachanach Cottage is a recently refurbished traditional stone cottage situated in a designated area of outstanding natural beauty (Knapdale) on the west coast of Scotland. It's located within the beautiful Ardpatrick Estate, with numerous walks starting right at the front door. Since it sits on a single-track no through-road, there's almost no traffic around making it an incredibly peaceful location. The village of Tarbert (just North of Kintyre), where there are shops, good restaurants, art galleries and sailing facilities, is just 15km away. The award-winning Kilberry Inn is just 10 minutes drive away.

Finished to a high standard, Cnocachanach Cottage provides one double bedroom (with en-suite) and an open-plan kitchen and living area with a wood burning stove.

Traditional Cottage In A Beautiful Peaceful Location Close To The Sea
average rating of 4.5 based on 14 reviews

Lovely remote cottage in beautiful surroundings. Loved lighting the log burner in the evenings.

  • 4 of 5

We come up to Scotland most years but this was our first visit to this area. Very beautiful with islands and water around every corner. We walked across the estate to a deserted little bay where there were so many different shells to collect. We explored some delightful little coastal roads. We spent a day on Arran . Sunshine all day and a picnic on the beach. The Kintyre peninsula was less interesting.

Tarbert is a nice little town for both the necessary food shopping and the numerous gift shops.

The cottage was very good with lots of thoughtful little extras. A good supply on arrival of toilet paper, washing machine detergents, washing up liquid etc. When you are two people staying for only a week it is really annoying to have to buy all of these things and only use a very small amount. And thank you Annie for the pretty flowers.

We enjoyed lighting the log burner in the evenings when it was raining outside, although it was not cold, the cottage is very cosy.

We had some very good meals at The West Loch hotel.

My one criticism relates to the bed. Maybe the mattress is quite old? We did not find that it offered us good support. ( we are both small and slim!!) so did not sleep as well as we would have hoped.

Nevertheless, I would recommend this holiday home .

Characterful cottage with mod cons in a very peaceful/beautiful spot

  • 5 of 5

An ideal spot to get away from it all . Choose to just stay nearby the cottage or wander a little farther away. The peaceful/beautiful surroundings are very soothing and you can soon lose yourself in it all . The cottage is ideal for two and very comfortable. Wildlfe is there for you to find and hear. There is a great mixture of coast (including beaches) and country.

Bijou comfortable cottage in a beautiful location

  • 4 of 5

As above, the only additional comment is that a welcome pack (milk) would have been useful as the location is remote and the nearest shop 10 miles away.

Cnocachanach cottage is a lovely holiday home near the sea,with a cosy log-burning stove

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at Cnocachanach for Christmas . The cottage was warm and comfortable even in the weather we experienced gales sleet and hailstones. There are lovely walks from the cottage along the shore

We also visited Inveraray 18th century jail which is well worth a visit,and Kilmartin glen with its stone age burial mounds and standing stones. Even in December just before Christmas we found museums and cafes open

The cottage is well equipped and very comfortable in a peaceful location about 20mins from Tarbert were there are some shops . A delightful place to stay even in winter.

Beautiful cottage in a beautiful location

  • 4 of 5

I'm writing this review as we sadly return home from a wonderful weeks stay in this lovely cottage in a stunning location. We were wanting a week away from it all and we couldn't have chosen a more amazing place. The cottage is quaint, cosy and comfortable, with all that you could need. The cottage is surrounded by wildlife; deer (which we watched from the kitchen window most mornings/evenings), red squirrels, badgers, numerous birds and seals a plenty all along the coast. There is so much to see and do if you love to be outdoors. If not, the cottage is still a perfect getaway if you just want to relax in a beautiful location. Highly recommended.
