what a lovely cottage. The views out the front were just stunning. But do not look for the old phone box as that got taken out a few days into our stay. On the first morning I could of just stayed looking out the back window watching the wildlife. Was lovely watching all the red squirrels playing. But the exciting thing for me was the rare visit from the pine Martin..
Loved the bedrooms and bathrooms great showers. Water being brown due to peat was slightly of putting.. The only things that spoilt it for me I thought the lounge furniture was very worn and dated. And the back gardens were all open to all 3 property's and as we had a dog that is nervous with other dogs we were unable to let him have a run in the garden.. Very safe for children and other dogs though.. Really did not spoil il our holiday and loved it all .. The view a couple of miles up the road is one of the best in the world. And I have been to some stunning places. For me it's a shame it's a 10 hour drive away. Went on some fantastic walks. The village is good very friendly and good for eating out.

“Fabulous cottage in gorgeous surroundings”
Reviewed July 29, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Teal cottage was spacious, yet cosy and comfortable, and wonderfully well equipped. Full-size fridge-freezer, dishwasher, washing machine, both bedrooms en-suite, separate utility room and shower room - couldn't have asked for any more to make our stay as relaxing as possible. Andrew was very helpful in providing fishing equipment for our son and useful info on where to fish - and yes, we did catch some! Stunning views from the cottage onto the loch and the surrounding are is beautiful. This place was the perfect antidote to the stress of the daily grind. Our dog Bobbi had great fun running along all the beaches everywhere we visited. We were all sorry to leave.

“Perfect cottage - comfortable and warm - great host”
Reviewed October 9, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

One of the best cottages we have been to. Easy to do, comfortable and warm, log fire.
Slept very well.
Andrew the owner is a kind and helpful host.
We have a dog and there are some places to walk near at hand, down onto the shore especially.

Big estuary that fills up and empties dramatically outside the window across the road.
Old red phone box just there too. This is a really lovely part of the world. Beautiful scenery, lovely places to visit... even made it to Gigha (must go to restaurant there) .
and loads of other trips ..Otter Ferry .. Tignabruich
Forgive the spelling... Just great !

“Beautiful!”
Reviewed October 6, 2014 for a stay in October 2014

My husband and I stayed at Teal Cottage with our two dogs for a last minute weekend getaway and we couldn't fault it - the cottage was so comfortable and immaculately furnished. The views are stunning and it's a perfect place to just get away from it all. We'd would definitely recommend it to anyone and can't wait to visit again.

“Lovely cottage, excellent location”

Just returned from a fantastic midweek break at Teal with my wife and our dog.

The cottage is almost brand new and set in a beautiful location overlooking Loch Riddon. When the tide goes out there is a beach right on your doorstep, perfect for having a walk and paddle with the dog. The owner Andrew was brilliant from first contact and very helpful informing us about the area.

2 miles up the mountain road is a spectacular lookout point offering an amazing view over the kyles of bute.

Ostell bay is about a 20 minute drive plus 15 minute walk to a stunning white beach with crystal clear water which we had to ourselves.

Some good restaurants also scattered around the area.

We'll definitely be going back at some point.

“A fantastic cottage and lovely area”
Reviewed May 12, 2014 for a stay in April 2014

We had an amazing stay in this well equiped cottage and were fortunate with the weather. Perfect way to see the Cowal Peninsular with plenty of activities during the day (burn climbing and golf were our favourites) and a lovely place to relax in the evening with stunning views over the loch watching the tide and birds come in. So excited to have seen the osprey from through the kitchen window - a real bonus, and the regular arrival of the red squirrels in the garden was brilliant.

The cottage was spotless and very comfortable making us really feel as if it was a home from home, and the owners couldn't have been more helpful with our booking from start to finish and gave us a warm welcome.
