We have just returned from a truly wonderful week’s holiday staying in “The Knowe”. Isobel, the owner, made the whole process from booking right through to our stay a pleasant and stress free experience.
The cottage is very well appointed and nicely maintained. It feels like a proper home not a minimalist holiday let. The accommodation is comfortable and stylish. Isobel shows a great eye for detail using quality bed linen, towels and soft furnishings mixed with lovely old furniture, artwork and flowers. These are all in keeping with the old property’s character.
The views from the house are amazing and the garden is large and well furnished with various seats and a table from which to eat or simply relax and admire the views. The setting is peaceful and private and within easy walking distance of the good local facilities. There is the added bonus of off street parking.
The Knowe makes an ideal base to explore this beautiful area. There are many splendid walks from Tighnabruaich and numerous interesting attractions nearby.
The weather was kind to us and we walked miles locally and then ventured further afield to Bute, including visiting Mount Stuart plus Scalpsie and Ettrick Bays. We toured the Cowal Peninsula and went to Portavadie and Otter Ferry. The whole area is well worth a visit. We were impressed by the warm welcome extended to us by everyone we met along with the stunning natural beauty, wildlife and tranquillity.
Many thanks Isobel. We hope to return.
