Spacious, well equipped, excellent interior, stunning views and every bedroom like a hotel room!
We’ve just returned from a fabulous week on Argyll’s Secret Coast and I had to write this review. What a week we had! The tropical weather helped us to make great use of the stunning balcony. We sat and watched the wildlife just play in front of us - porpoises, herons, swans, oyster catchers, cormorant... on our drives out we saw deer frolicking in the woods! Sadly, we missed the seals but not to worry we’ll be back! The house was just perfect for our family, we had our own space and enjoyed every room in the property. The kitchen was great to cook in, with everything you could wish for. The bedrooms and bathrooms were just fantastic - each one with a TV! This was great when retiring to bed, after a hard day taking in the spectacular Argyll coast. The local pub “The Tiggy Hotel” was just a stones throw away and is just what you need - good beer and hearty food. The locals couldn’t be more friendly. Thank you Waterside, great memories made in a special place.
Beautiful property, well equipped.
As above, the property is exceptional. Well equipped, very roomy and well furnished.
Excellent and very spacious
First impressions count and this home has all you need for a peaceful and relaxing holiday. Superb position overlooking the Kyles of Bute and a great location for exploring Argyles secret coast.
Thanks Alan, we love the house, it's like being at sea on a ship!
Heaven on earth
This is a reluctant review as when word spreads about this property we may struggle to book again! The most well designed and thought out property with incredible views across to bute all to be enjoyed from the 18m balcony. Couple that with a walk out the back door to shops and restaurants in a really lovely and friendly village with fishing for kids off the nearby pontoon (25x mackrel in one session!) and probably the most scenic golf course just up the road, just fantastic. One blocked bath trap during the stay and penny on the case, plumber in at 9am and fixed therefore you can rely on this owner to do all they can to ensure you have best experience. House was spotlessly clean and bedrooms better than most high end boutique hotels.
The nearby £10 million port vadie leisure complex offers indoor and outdoor pools and spa, like bathwater outside enabling you to relax and enjoy amazing views of loch whatever the weather.
You can see from the very grand stone built victorian houses that the village was a place for the rich to holiday back in the day and it hasnt lost any of its grandure.
Like most we normally go further north into the highlands but due to elderly family on this trip decided to stay a bit further south and whilst the area doesnt have the big munros, it has its own special feel and character which really took us by surprise.
This is probably the best cottage we have stayed at in the last twenty years and beleive me when I say I am fussy!
Huge thankyou to penny for giving us a memory that we will never forget and for sharing her wonderful home with us and we would love to return.

Great Property, Fantastic View
The property is very modern and large, more so than in the photos. The kitchen was well fitted out with everything required and the lounge and sun-rooms particularly comfortable. Great idea to have the TV in the sun-room and none in the lounge with the alternative of using the games room as well. The four en-suite bedrooms are very comfortable with the two front rooms having the fantastic views to Bute. Even in the fairly wet weather it was a pleasure to sit and watch the tides change and views come and go, and when the sun did shine, there's no better view to be had. The property is in the centre of the small village of Tignhabruich which meant there was the opportunity to shop locally at the small store and several alternatives for eating out whilst plenty to do within walking distance. The bistro Botanica is particulalry fine for morning coffees and evening meals. Getting aroung the Bute and the Cowal Peninsula and over to he Mull of Kintyre is very easy using the brilliant CalMac ferries. Overall, we'd return in a moment.
