“Best Hen Weekend ever!”
Reviewed April 21, 2016 for a stay in April 2016

I was at a Hen Weekend at this beautiful house. It is in amazing grounds and the house has everything you could want/need. All the bedrooms are en suite and the kitchen is exceptionally well equipped. There was even a cupboard full of wellies to use. The pool is just the icing on the cake too. It is tastefully decorated with lots of room for a large family. It is the perfect place for a large family holiday. Can't rate this house high enough.

“Beautiful house in a stunning location! This house has it all!”
Reviewed April 20, 2016 for a stay in April 2016

We recently stayed at High Wards House for a hen weekend and everyone can't stop talking about how AMAZING it was!

The house is absolutely beautiful! Emily (the owner) has really taken great care to think of all the amenities people would need for their stay and provided them such as plenty of big, fluffy towels (extra ones for the indoor pool as well!), Arran Aromatics hand soap, Bose bluetooth sound system and every kitchen utensil you could possibly need!

The bedrooms in the house are stunning - and MASSIVE! Each one has a beautiful en-suite and I was amazed at the size of them all. The beds are ridiculously comfortable - I kept saying it was like sleeping on a cloud!!

During our stay we hired a Photo Booth which was set up in the conservatory and there was plenty of space to fit all 21 hens into the photos. We also booked a BBQ chef which was great as it saved us having to cook so we could sit back and relax.

If you are planning a gathering then this house is PERFECT and really is as good as it seems! We will definitely be returning as soon as we can. Thank you for such a wonderful stay.

“Fantastic House with everything you need”
Reviewed April 5, 2016 for a stay in March 2016

Stayed for a week from 24th March with Family. The house is in a beautiful location with great facilities and everything you could possibly need. I would not hesitate in recommending to anyone. Kids loved riding their bikes around the grounds and playing in the garden and pool. Nothing was too much bother for Emily and she quickly dealt with any questions. One of our party was allergic to the feather bedding but this was rectified immediatley with an alternative. The pool table provided a great entertainment in the evening.

“Amazing Place”
Reviewed April 4, 2016 for a stay in March 2016

We booked High Wards for a family holiday and it certainly lived up to our expectations being even better than the photographs. The house and facilities are amazing we had no problem in selecting bedrooms as they were all very well appointed. High Wards is an ideal for a family holiday there was more than enough room for our party of 8 adults and 6 children of varying ages. The views from the house are fantastic and you can actually walk to the lochside best in wellies though. Also the location is excellent for trips out.
There were lots of toys, bikes and ride on tractors etc for the children to play on together with swings slide and playhouse. Unfortunately the trampoline needs some repairs. The children had a great time with loads of space both inside and outside. The pool was great for all ages and was always warm. The house was always warm maybe too warm at times. The great room was great for the adults and children to get together and had an excellent pool table and large tv. The kitchen diner was superb and was well appointed. Overall a fantastic property which is supported with excellent service by Emily the owner.

Firstly I want to thank Emily the owner for her amazing hospitality during our stay at High Wards. Not only was the booking process as easy as picking up the phone, but the level of detail involved in our stay was beyond my expectations. She was more than happy to help no matter how big or small the query, and offered an amazing array of home-cooked food, which I can't praise enough.

The lodge itself is by far and away the most luxurious and stunning house I have ever stayed in. The facilities were absolutely incredible, with the swimming pool being a hit with all of our guests. As well as this, the Main Hall, complete with pool table, log burning fire and the most breathtaking views over the Loch, really completed a great weekend.

None of the guests could fault any of the bedrooms, all of them being generous in size and well decorated.

Thanks again for making our trip such a memorable one!

We had 15 people staying for the weekend. The weather was mixed and we didn't venture far but there was no need to. This house has enough space be together or have space. The swimming pool was perfect as was the pool table. We didn't have to worry about the noise when playing trivial pursuits either. The rooms are of such a high standard that you feel like you are luxury boutique hotel.
Emily made or weekend easy by ensuring that we had everything we needed and kept in touch to ensure or needs had not changed
Thank you Emily and team for making our weekend perfect
