AnCala is set in a gorgeous location with a like for like house next door and only the loch as anyone else nearby. The views are truly stunning and the seclusion is what made it for us. The BBQ came in handy and found the house equipped well, for the majority of things. Some more bowls and side plates (2 plates for 6 people wasn't enough) would be ideal.
I have been to a few to a holiday rentals and normally the personal touches are what makes the difference between a great and an average stay. This was much the latter for me. For it being so secluded it would be nice if there was some fresh milk, even just a small pint, for when you arrive to have a tea or coffee. The decor could definitely be improved and storage space for 6 people is really inadequate.
I would suggest this as a booking for 4 adults at most. The kitchen table is not designed for 6 people to sit around it and there are no chairs for the 5th and 6th adult unless you sit at the dining table all night.
All in all I did enjoy my stay but it I would have been really annoyed if there was 1 more of us in the party of 4 adults and 1 child. It is a great space and could be so much better with just a couple of extra touches.
Had a great time at An Cala. Well equipped with everything you would need. Clean throughout with lovely clean decor. a great place to get away from it all and enjoy nature. We had some lovely walks and the kids enjoyed climbing the rocks and exploring the surrounding woodland.
would highly recommend for anyone who enjoys the outdoors.
Definitely be back.
Stayed at An Cala for three nights with my partner and our spaniel. The location is fabulous, really peaceful and lovely views over Loch Ascog. The bungalow is well stocked with all of the essentials we needed. My only suggestion for improvement is a few repairs and decor touch ups. The blind in the master bedroom is broken and some areas of the walls are grubby and could do with attention. This would enhance the overall impression of the property. Thanks for a great stay!
We visited an cala bungalow for a three night stay,everything from when we arrived was perfect,fantastic location on map,bungalow was modern, and very clean,rooms are a good size with en suite in main bedroom,everything set in place from cutlery, plates
kettle,iron and iron board,glasses and cups,no need to pack any little extras,perfect location, off the beaton track and lovely backdrop,bungalow footsteps away from loch ascog and also great location for a trip to portavadie marina where you can have a first class meal,Use toms taxi service if you want a beer or wine with meal,taxi will pick you up at whatever time you want and come back and get you,either that it's a 30 min walk,not recommended for the ladies if you want to get dressed up as road into bungalow is off road underfoot,also have to mention the barn,great little cafe with great food,would also recommend hiring cycles from potavadie marina and take in some of the breathtaking scenery that surrounds you,would recommend to all,if you want an escape, then this is for you.
will definitely be returning,fantastic accommodation in a fantastic part of the country ☺
Stayed here for a long weekend in September with my wife and boxer dog charlie . Lodge was modern,clean ,spacious and the string is perfect . No noise and at night the stars are amazing .Watch the midges. The scenery if you drive to this lodge is amazing .You are ten minutes drive from Portvadie which has nice country walk and a very nice restaurant .This is a great place to rest and explore , you sill smile everyday you are here. I am looking forward to booking again .
We stayed in An Cala for 3 nights and it was absolutely fabulous. The location beside the loch was amazing and the house was lovely.
Would definitely go back.
An amazing find , An Cala sits besides a beautiful loch surrounded by pine trees and quiet.
The lodge is clean, well appointed and has everything you would need. Decoration is simple, but considered and allows you to take in the view and the peace of loch, the birds and the odd fisherman's boat.
This is a place for thinking, for resting, for swimming, but for above all peace.
We had no problems finding the lodge, the communication with agents was quick and professional.
