Lethamhill is an amazing house, up a long private drive and with stunning view of the Clyde esturary and the twinkling lights of Greenock after dusk.
Jane was the best host ever - amazing breakfasts in the beautiful dining room along with the other guests on a shared table, which we loved.
There were so many little touches, like the delicious homemade fudge and shortbread in our rooms every day (in fact we have come home with the recipes of both kindly supplied by Jane - we've made the shortbread twice so far and delicious!).
The house was architect designed and is only just around the corner from Charles Rennie Mackintosh's famous Hill House. It's a lovely area with wide roads and avenues of trees - all running up a hill from the little seaside town. We even spotted the famous Waverley paddle steamer chugging out of the port.
Helen has a huge lounge for guests too, overlooking the lovely garden and provides free sherry in there to help yourself to.
Our room was very grand, spotlessly clean and full of dark antique furniture and lovely drapes and wallpaper. The bathroom, in contrast was lovely and ultra modern - beautiful bath, powerful shower and lovely white towels and perfect cotton sheets and down pillows.
We had a lovely stay and were made to feel very welcome. Very much hoping to return, as this is a good spot for visiting all around the region. We went into Glasgow to the new Riverside Museum and into the city as well as visiting Greenock (family history research) and driving up to Ardlui in Loch Lomond one night for dinner. An excellent location. I notice there was a good train service into Glasgow and the station is only a short walk from the house - we would try this next time.
