A very pleasant surprise

  • 5 of 5

We were unsure of what to expect as photos can flatter places, but Blaven was everything it promised and more.

Even with 11 adults over three generations, there was space and comfort and privacy for everyone.

All the bedrooms and beds were comfortable and the main en suite was stunning.

The kitchen was exceptionally well equipped and the Nespresso machine was much appreciated. We loved the convenience of the two utility rooms.

I had thought such a big house might be cold but it was cosy from the minute we arrived.

The log fire was a bonus.

Great birthday holiday! Would definitely recommend Blaven.

Fantastic base to explore Oban and the surrounding area

  • 4 of 5

The property is perfect for a large family! Big enough to have space to do your own thing but small enough to feel like home! Amazing views and great facilities. We had a family group ranging from a 2 years old to 74 year old and all found it easy and accommodating to everyones needs! We would come back again.

Excellent Family Home

  • 5 of 5

Three families from Italy, USA and UK shared this house for 1 week. We loved it! Great location (walking distance to town), large and spacious, nice playground for kids, and nice furnishings. Highly recommend for families, couples, etc. Master bedroom was large with large bath (shower and big tub). 1 bedroom in back connects to playroom with private bath which was very useful for 1 family to share (parents in bedroom and then used fold out beds for kids! We were able to close this area off for a private suite for a family. 2 large living rooms downstairs with TV and lot seating area. Large eat-in-kitchen. Laundry. Excellent house and highly recommend.

Review of Blaven

  • 5 of 5

The house is wonderful, well kitted out, good rooms for a big party. A great kitchen/dining room. Plenty of things for children to do, excellent climbing frame.

A pity the beds were only made up for 11, as we had booked for 12!

We had a great all age family weekend, thank you.

Fantastic stay in Oban

  • 5 of 5

The house is lovely with fantastic views across the water. There are some really sweet touches like the hamper, fresh flowers and Arran Aromatics shower gels which makes for a super welcome. The kitchen is well equipped with lots of space to cook family meals, and the beds deserve special mention as they are so comfortable with high quality bedding. The housekeeper should also be commended as the house is spotless. The walk down to town is really quick and its fun to have a race to see who gets to the top on the way back. We bought fresh langoustines and crab claws from the fish shop right at the ferry terminal (they even cracked the claws for us), and enjoyed them sitting at the picnic tables in the garden with the added bonus of sunshine while watching the ferries come in and out. I have only given the house a good condition as the BBQ is still missing (review from guests in May), and the kids play room needs attention with the lack of anything to use the Playstation and broken table tennis net. However, very small issues and certainly would not stop us recommending the house or returning to stay. A really gorgeous place to stay with many happy memories.

Perfect Oban Retreat for Large Family/Group

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I rented Blaven for a special trip for us and our five grown children. We all agreed it was a perfect retreat to explore the highland region. The house is beautiful, spacious and well appointed. I particularly loved the view from the master bedroom! We enjoyed walking into Oban for activities and dinner. It was only a 10-15 minute walk down to the town center but the walkways are very steep. Even for an active family, the trip back up to Pulpit Hill felt long and strenuous after multiple trips in a day. The house has wifi, but it was only accessible in the sitting room. The owners have two extenders, which would probably have made the signal strong and accessible throughout the house, but the password for the extenders was not provided. On the positive side, this gave a good excuse to be disconnected from the "real world". We enjoyed Oban's restaurants but also cooked at home two nights.
