“I came away feeling completely refreshed!”
Reviewed September 26, 2013 for a stay in September 2013

Stunning location - Dramatic hills, the peaceful loch and a view that changes dramatically throughout the day as the weather changes. Much time was spent walking and fishing!

Amazing house - Kitchen/living area is a fantastic space for socialising as a group or just chilling out. And the speaker system runs throughout the house!

A wonderful place to relax, my week at Fearnach Bay House was very comfortable and very happy!

“Exceptional House and Area for a Holiday”
Reviewed July 8, 2013 for a stay in June 2013
1
person found this review helpful

Yes it may be expensive, but it's worth it. Take 4-7 people for a truly memorable holiday, perhaps for an anniversary.

This large house has a super view of Loch Melfort. It's brand new. It's fitted with constant under-floor heating pumped in from outside. It is decorated in gentle colours which blend in with the surroundings. Rory is a fine painter of the local land- and seascape. Pictures by him and others enhance the spacious lounge/dining room. All design and workmanship is first-rate. Sky TV, Radio and CD/DVD player are available and the sound can be piped to any room.

A fully-equipped, top specification kitchen will support your cooking or Jennie's own home cooking is excellent. Spacious bedrooms (with under-floor heating) are well furnished and have superb views.

Comprehensive, up-to-date guides are provided to restaurants, walks etc. In bad weather there are plenty of books, CDs, DVDs and indoor games. Outdoors there is a rowing boat and fishing rods. There are lots of walking and cycling routes and plenty of wildlife in the unspoilt countryside accessible from the house.

The main problem is tearing yourself away at the end. You may feel that you need to come back soon!

“Oh bring me back to Melfort.....”
Reviewed March 12, 2013 for a stay in March 2013

Unbelieveable stay. The grounds are stunning. The attention to detail is constantly surprising. The peace abounds. Glorious surroundings and luxurious facilities.
Blue Jays, woodpeckers, red squirrels and buzzards keeping us company. I can't wait to go back. I've left my heart in Melfort! Thank you Rory and Jenny and we wish you every success!

“Could have stayed all year:)”

people found this review helpful

This is the second visit we have made to this beautiful house. We last stayed in oct 12....and have rebooked for Xmas this year. That I would say says it all!
The house like the couple who own it are fantastic. Nothing is ever a problem and they are on hand if you have any questions.
The house is excellent for young children, there is a beach for collecting shells/playing etc...at the bottom of the drive, lots of super walks and the wildlife is fascinating. Having travellled all over the world and stayed in some amazing hotels, I could honestly say Fearnach bay house and it's surroundings is my favourite place to holiday with our family. We were sad to leave.

We absolutely loved our time at the house, so much so we have booked to return next year.
It is spotlessly clean with everything you need to have a wonderful stay.
The owners are very welcoming and extremely approachable.
The views like the house are stunning.
10/10!
The best holiday rental we have ever stayed in.

“Two weeks in a fabulous house overlooking Loch Melfort”
Reviewed September 8, 2012 for a stay in August 2012

Fearnach Bay House had absolutely no downsides, it was immaculately clean and organised when we arrived, and became what felt like our second home. It is spacious with a lovely large dining room/sitting room, which has spectacular views of Loch Melfort and the boats moored there. The owners, Rory and Jenny, have decorated it beautifully and it was wonderful to have a reliable dishwasher, washing machine, washing line and everything else one needs to make a Scottish holiday easy. Each time we returned from various boat trips, walks, swims, sightseeing etc the house felt warm and cosy, and as we opened the door it really did feel as if we were returning 'home'. We would highly recommend the house, and hope one day we will return for another holiday there.

“Stunning house in beautiful location”
Reviewed August 16, 2012 for a stay in August 2012

I stayed here with my husband, daughter and two young granddaughters. This is the house of my dreams! It was absolutely perfect in every way and spotlessly clean (and I am very fussy!) The view is stunning and the location perfect.

The owners came to stay hello at the start and end of the holiday, and were available to speak with at any time if there were problems.

Even the weather was great. It was raining all week at home, and we had dry weather!

Oh, and we all agreed, the beds were the most comfortable we had ever slept in.
