We stayed at Cardon House for a couple of nights for New Year. There was ample space for our party of 14, and all bedrooms were en-suite. All rooms were large and comfy. The woodburning stove was an added bonus, especially at this time of the year, with a plentiful supply of wood. The dining area was large, enough room for everyone to sit at one table which we also used for party/board games. Outside space great for those with young kids to run about and let off steam in sight of the front door.
There was no Wi-Fi available at this house due to the remote location but this did not impact on our stay. The mobile signal was mostly good, even 4G in some areas. There was no TV in the living room, however one was available in every bedroom. We found that there wasn't enough hot water for showers in the morning, however once the fire was on this was resolved. The cooker took a bit of getting used to but managed to cook a full meal for a full house.
The booking process was easy, reasonably priced, and we always got prompt replies from Caroline. We would highly recommend Cardon House and will definitely consider returning in the future!
Eautiful house and beautifully decorated for Christmas thank you for a lovely stay ample room in the bedrooms and it was very cosy with the wood burning stove. Beds were very comfortable and the downstairs bathroom handy for the less able in our party- would recommend a stay here
Four of us stayed here to celebrate a 40th birthday in September and I can't recommend it highly enough. The standard of the furnishings and space available in the property is fantastic. There is everything you need here to make a stay or holiday special, we will certainly be returning to experience more of the beautiful Scottish Highlands.
Thank you Caroline for the use of your property that made our experience very enjoyable.
We were two families with kids aged 4 - 14 with us. We drove from Edinburgh, stopping at Glenn Coe on the way, a must. We stayed at Carden House, just outside the city of Inverness, amidst lush green, quiet and sheep flecked meadows. It was beautiful. Our house was very spacious and our hosts were very friendly and helpful. We recommend Carden house for families and people who dont mind being without wifi for a few days. Internet signal was very patchy due to the remoteness of the house, but we did not mind it one bit. Grocery shops could be conveniently reached via car. We visited in August, weather was very pleasant, only challenge was the one way narrow dirt roads to and from highways to the house, making driving after dark a bit tricky.
...especially when the home is big enough to actually be a castle. We sadly spent only four days in this wonderful house. Carson House is amazing. Beautiful bedrooms, beautiful living areas and an amazing kitchen. The surroundings are equally amazing, and we will certainly return here to stay for a longer time. The kids loved it, we loved it. Thank you very much Caroline. You'll be seeing us again for sure !
We were a group of 8 adults and 5 kids all under 7. The house was more than big enough, giving the kids space to play and make noise. The bedrooms all had en suites and the house was warm throughout. Kids also loved the outdoor space to run about, we even managed a barbecue on the Saturday. Inverness is easily accessible in a 10 mins drive. We all had a great time and would recommend this to any group.
