This posting is so over due but it is no reflection on Cardon House but my own inefficiency.
It was a little challenging to find but oh so worth all the fussing.
We were a crowd of 6 adults and 1 toddler and there was plenty room for everyone. The rooms were beautifully furnished and comfortable, the bonus for us was in the largest room the "walk in cupboard/dressing room" had two single beds which meant our daughter had her own bed but was in the same room. We were using the house as a base but I didn't venture out cause it was just so tranquil and gorgeous I was happy to sit in the garden while the others went out and about.
Caroline was an absolute gem, she made us feel welcomed like we were part of the family.
We were 9 member team and Cardon House was the best place for us to spend our holiday. Excellent facilities were provided and we enjoyed the stay very much. Also the location of Cardon House is in such a place, where we can travel to all main attractions / shops easily. Caroline is very nice person and helped us to find some nice places near by. For Cardon House our rating would be 10/10.
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 !
