“Short but lovely stay”
Reviewed July 5, 2014 for a stay in June 2014

person found this review helpful

We stayed here with my mum& dad for a family wedding for 3 nights last weekend.

The owner Bob is very accommodating and everything was as he said it would be.

The cottage is absolutely lovely. It's pristine in terms of the cleanliness & the quality of the furniture & decor. The kitchen is very well equipped with anything you could need. TV has Sky though I'm pleased to say we didn't watch a lot.

On arrival there was milk. A bottle of wine & a loaf of lovely bread from a local baker.

The house is bright & airy with a huge kitchen diner & an upstairs sitting room. The sitting room has amazing views & a balcony to sit & enjoy them on.

The cottage has a good sized garden & downstairs there is a large patio area which looks out across the view too. We were lucky to have fabulous weather but the patio is partially covered & I would have been happy sitting out there in the rain.

We took our dog with us & he & I spent long happy hours there in the sun.

The only thing to watch is it's quite an uphill walk from the village & my mum struggled a bit. So just be mindful if you are travelling with someone elderly or with mobility issues.

We loved it & just wished we had been there longer. We are already planning to go back with friends.

“Great position, great house”
Reviewed May 1, 2014 for a stay in April 2014

people found this review helpful

Can only really repeat others reviews.
This is a beautifully designed, well equipped and comfortable house, in a lovely elevated position, overlooking the village and the loch. Everything you might need is provided for self catering, but the Crafty Kitchen is a nice place to eat, if eating out - (take a bottle of wine). We were visiting relatives so didn't travel beyond the village.
Also good that pets are welcome - (but the house is very clean and there is no evidence of pets ever having stayed there).
Looking forward to staying again at Stronefield the next time we visit .

“Best view in Ardfern”
Reviewed November 1, 2013 for a stay in October 2013
1
person found this review helpful

Our 3rd time at Stronefield tells you all you need to know about our opinion of this place. Have been coming to Ardfern for 20 years by boat and car and love the place dearly. Once the boat was sold we needed a place on dry land. Having stayed in several local places, this is by far the best with views to die for from kitchen, upstairs lounge and bedroom. The outside belies the clever design of the place. Everything is modern and well equipped and Bob, the owner, is very relaxed and helpful. Good local amenities inc shop and pub and great walks. Weather was foul this week but hardly matters when you have a glass of malt, a log fire and a highland window to look out of. Roll on next year!

“Idyllic location, beautiful home and overall amazing holiday!”
Reviewed August 18, 2013 for a stay in June 2013

Despite having holidays on Scotland's west coast for a number of years, this is the first time we have been to Ardfern. Stronefield cottage is situated in the heart of this idyllic yachting village with fantastic views out to the water. The house itself was great, it has every amenity you could need, and goes above and beyond what the pictures show. A real highlight has to be the living room upstairs with a balcony and woodburning stove, perfect for relaxing in the evenings. In terms of the local area there is a pub/restaurant with great seafood dishes, the opportunity to go fishing and also enjoy one of the many walking routes. We will certainly look to go back, and highly recommend this place for anyone who wants a relaxing break.

“Beautiful house beautifully located”
Reviewed April 7, 2013 for a stay in April 2013

This is a lovely house - the design, the location, the way it's fitted out and equipped, the feel of it. There are some very nice touches as well - for example, they provide different weight duvets in each bedroom. The living area is upstairs with a balcony which means it has a great view over the village and the loch. Outstanding.

“Mackerel, sea trout and lobsters - already fixed dates to come back next year!”
Reviewed November 19, 2012 for a stay in September 2012

We – two Danish families - spent a week in Stronefield Cottage in September. We went on beautiful hikes, saw golden eagles, seals and basking whales. We smoked the fish we caught and cooked lobsters we bought fresh from the local supplier in the village. And we visited the lovely local restaurants, bars and shops. All in all, this was probably the best holiday we have ever had together. The countryside is spectacular (for comparison Denmark is flat like a fluffy omelet), the view from the balcony to the sea loch and the mountains is fantastic (with or without a whisky in hand). The house is smart, roomy and very well equipped. In the evenings we lit the wood burning stove and made plans. Very helpful and efficient owner. We have already fixed the dates to come back next year!

“A beautiful, well equiped house in a stunning position, can't wait to return !”
Reviewed May 13, 2012 for a stay in May 2012

We have just spent a fantastic week at Stronefield Cottage. The "cottage" is a stunning, very well equiped house which has everything you need. The welcome pack of essentials was a great start. The wood burning stove was cosy on the couple of nights we watched the sun going down from the living room. The house is very roomy and takes 8 people very easily, plus a full size cot and high chair for little ones. I would suggest adding a couple of larger bath sheets to the large supply of bath/hand towels. The village shop has everything you need and there is also a lovely tea room with excellent meals and cakes. The local pub also offers excellent hospitality. Everyone is friendly and we had a wonderful trip out to sea on the Sea Lepod to see the Corryvrechan and both sea and golden eagles..Amazing! there is so much to do in the area. All highly recommended, we will certainly return!
