Having just spent three nights over the New Year period in beautiful Sannox, my husband and I would wholeheartedly echo all the most positive comments made by previous visitors to Darven Cottage. The location is perfect; a stones throw from the beach with stunning views from the main bedroom and gorgeous lounge, over the ever changing light and moods in... More

This was my second time to Darven Cottage, but the first for my husband. He was not disappointed! I had told him so much about it and the visit lived up to his expectations....except sadly the WA state flag was not flying due to storms the previous week. David was a great host with 3 course gourmet meals produced both... More

I have just returned from a week at Darven Cottage. Welcoming, warm and wonderful Darven. What an idyllic location. Simply walk down the garden and you are on the shores on Sannox Bay. Stunning scenery and utterly restful. Our host was so helpful in suggesting the best places on the island to take our dogs, and where we would get... More

Having been before we have just spent another fantastic week at Darven and just as happy as the first time we visited. Fantastic hospitality from David once again; the perfect place to get away from it all and to relax. The accommodation is perfect and always immaculately clean and our dog was made very welcome and enjoyed the company of... More

We spent a very pleasant overnight stop here. The bedroom and bathroom were clean, nicely decorated and comfortable. We spent some time in the lovely sitting room, chatting with David and looking out of the picture windows at the wildlife and the sea. David was welcoming and knowledgeable. Breakfast was superb, and the dog was lovely

Just returned from a magical visit to Darven Cottage.Setting is second to none, right on Sannox beach! We had a really warm welcome and our room was lovely. We had our own bathroom with all quality toiletries. Breakfast was brilliant and no grease in sight. Fruit was ripe and sweet and toast was from quality bread. Will be back for... More

Popped over to Arran on the weekend. Had not long arrived from Australia to enjoy a few weeks of Scottish winter. I love Scottish winters. There's something about the driving wind and rain battering violently against the side of the house that I find strangely relaxing, especially staying in Darven Cottage! Unfortunately, the weather was quite mild and mellow, but... More

I went to Edinburgh for school last year and getting to visit Arran was the highlight of that experience. Me and a few friends stayed at David´s place for a weekend and it was brilliant. He was an incredibly gracious host, a staggeringly good cook, and excellent company. The accomodations were charming and warm, the dogs were a blast to... More

Lovely welcome from friendly hosts David and Carole in their cottage and garden which extends down to the beach. It was great to watch the ducks, hens, small birds and squirrels being busy from the family lounge where you eat and relax with the dogs and cats. The bedroom was comfortable, though small and was without TV or tea-making facilities... More

Firstly, many thanks for taking the trouble to review your recent stay, I have to say, however, I was taken aback when I read certain elements of your crit and the category ratings, which appear to be in stark contrast to virtually all our feedback on this site over the past few years. The markings and observations which particularly puzzled... More

We felt very comfortable at the Darven house. Besides the incredible breakfast - I am still longing for the black pudding- the bonus were the two lovely dogs which we could take for a pre-breakfast walk. The location was wonderful and we were hosted with the greatest hospitality. We surely intend to come back!
