“Stunning property & great amenities - will definitely be returning”
Reviewed November 2, 2018 for a stay in March 2018

We booked Ormidale Barn along with the Garden Cottage for a hen weekend
Both properties were beautiful, the hosts welcomed us as soon as we arrived despite not knowing our arrival time. The Barn is huge and each room quirky and different. Both properties were very clean and cosy.
Amenities were fab we used the hot tub and swimming pool on multiple occasions.
We would definitely rebook these properties - they are also in a very tranquil and beautiful setting.
Very reliable and friendly owner

“Great weekend away”
Reviewed September 10, 2018 for a stay in September 2018

14 of us just returned from a fab weekend away at the Old Barn! The amenities were great- the sauna, hot tub, and pool were well used throughout the weekend. We were particularly impressed that there was a spacious living room with enough comfy sofas for all of us to lounge on and a fab dining room we could all eat in. We went on a lovely walk exploring the beautiful area of Colintraive, and had great fun using the board games provided. We cannot thank John, Pam, and Norman enough for being such fantastic hosts and we look forward to booking in again for next year!

“Fantastic weekend”
Reviewed September 8, 2018 for a stay in August 2018

Fantastic weekend

I stayed at the old barn along with another 13 of my feiends for a weekend. We all had such a great weekend and would highly recommend the ‘Old Barn’. The location itself it beautiful and the barn is well equipped for large groups.
We made use of the sauna, swimming pool and hot tub. The bedrooms were clean and the beds were super comfy. A nice touch is the fact that everyone has a bath robe so it’s super easy just to put on your robe and head out to the hot tub.
The estate managers Pam and Norman were very welcoming and helpful too.
There are plenty of activities to do nearby and beautiful walking trails. Overall we had a great stay and can’t thank John enough for our stay at the Old Barn. We will definitely all be back and would highly recommend.

“Great house and facilities perfect for all ages!”
Reviewed July 30, 2018 for a stay in July 2018

We received a lovely warm welcome and the place looked great - clean, tidy, fresh towels etc The kitchen was well stocked with enough essentials and bottled water was kindly brought on the first day as family weren't so used to peat filtering.
We were a big group aged between 3 to 50+ and there was more than enough to keep everyone happy - the pool is lovely (cold but worth it!) hot tub a great addition on the cooler nights and the sunken trampoline was a huge hit! The estate gardens/forest are perfect tromping ground for all ages! Super time had by all!

Thank you so much Lu-lu for the nice review. I am so glad you enjoyed the grounds, and appreciated the house, and that my on-site staff impressed you. The combination of refreshing pool at 27 degrees and warmer hot tub at 40 degrees is enjoyed by most parties. Our gorgeous water is 100% safe and delicious, but prone to colouring from the peat, so we keep a little bottled water supply for folk who prefer that. A sin not to drink it in whisky, though!!! Our average score on tripadviser is 4.7, so whenever we get a 4 bubble review we are immediately worried about our ratings droppings, but the reality is that some people use bubbles like stars, and we are priced as a four star property and aiming to hit those standards. You were a lovely group who had a great time and that's the most important thing. Hope to see you again.

“Great 3 Days away”
Reviewed July 16, 2018 for a stay in July 2018

Myself and 12 others had planned a trip away to somewhere in the countryside. After thorough research of the best place to stay, we had come across this place. We had been intrigued by many of the feautures the house had, and many of the party were very keen to get the house booked. I had spoken to John, he had sorted everything out and been very kind during the booking. Everything had been booked and the day had came to travel to Ormidale. The trip there was a trip to remember. However once we had arrived we were over the moon at how nice the space was. Once the whole party had arrived we were all ecstatic. Pam had looked after us as soon as we had gotten there and made sure we were comfy and settled. The 3 days were splendid and we had enjoyed the surroundings of Ormidale. We will be back next year!

A beautiful place to stay on the Argyll coast,set in beautiful grounds my husband , myself and the dog stayed in a lovely garden cottage, .
We had use of swimming pool, hot tub. Access to the hills behind the house which we walked up with the dog fabulous views over Loch Riddon.
Rob and Debbie were very helpful with information and local knowledge and can organise activities, like fishing, shooting, quad biking etc.
Short drive over the hill to The Oysercatcher for great food,we had a fabulous lunch sitting in the sun, cracked it with the weather.. The Tighnabruaich Hotel close by was also lovely food.. There is so many accommodation options at Ormidale, the beautiful historic main house, the Mill house, The Old Barn..

11 family members had a great stay over Christmas. The location is amazing. Lots to do, hot tub, games room, swimming pool, and bikes available. The old barn is huge. Easily accommodated all of us. Huge kitchen, that's well stocked. We catered ourselves, but could have used the caterers there. The grounds and scenery were amazing. Fantastic walks with the dogs. Glencoe, and skiing only 2 hour journey away!
Debbie and Rob the estate managers were fantastic. They cater for your every need. They made our stay a very enjoyable time. Would highly recommend Ormidale for a lovely break.
