Customer Comments

Selected comment(s) from customers who have enjoyed staying at this property:
  1. A lovely farmhouse with fenced garden and stream running alongside, set in a well kept estate which has ponies, goat, chickens etc, and a woodland which has a tree swing, a great hit with the children. Loch Ederline is situated at the entrance to the Estate and tickets can be bought from the Ederline Estate House at the other side of the loch for fishing tickets and boat hire. The Loch proved to be great for pike fly fishing. Surrounding area has lots to offer, Carnaserrie Castle, Crinan Canal is beautiful, Oban, Inverary and the Castle. Lochgilphead, 12 miles away has a large well stocked co-p store and the high street has some nice shops. Oct 2012.
  2. Lovely homely cottage in fantastic location for exploring the area. Phil and Olly very friendly and helpful. Loved our time here and would visit again. Aug 2012.
  3. Second visit to The Farmhouse. Ideal for the lads annual fishing trip as the fittings and amenities etc are comfortable and lived-in rather than too Laura Ashley or IKEA. Phil - the caretaker - is a top geezer, very helpful and friendly. Had a great trip, thanks again. June 2012.
  4. The Farm is a good location for an outdoor holiday, and served us well. Dec 2011.
  5. the farmhouse though out in the country near facilities. No signal for mobiles but house phone with honesty box which was an added bonu. We had a lovely holiday although the weather was terrible but plenty of room for 5 adults 1 baby and dog. Sept 2011.
  6. We had a great holiday. Beautiful, peaceful area with lovely scenery. Seeing an otter, red squirrel and ospreys added to our enjoyment as did the rope swing in the wood. July 2011.
  7. Lovely area, watching the ospreys was great. Phil the caretaker was very helpful. May 2011.
  8. The property suited us down to the ground - we felt that the dogs were welcome in the house downstairs because it wasn’t too beautifully furnished. The wide mix of bedrooms was just right and the enclosed nature of the estate meant that the kids could roam unsupervised. It was useful having three toilets. April 2011.
  9. Good sized rooms, beautiful surroundings in a quiet and tranquil location and great value for money. Oct 2010.
  10. Good central location. Sept 2010.
  11. We consider ’ Farmhouse’ property excellent value for money, Phil Hemings, the estate manager is only too willing to help with any problems and have a friendly chat. June 2010.
  12. Clean, comfortable and homely without being too smart and formal. Ideal if you are taking dogs (or children)! Although the house can sleep up to 8 I don’t think the living room is really big enough for that many unless there are small children in the party. The garden is a good size and the area around the house is wonderful for exploring and looking for wildlife. Very quiet and peaceful. May 2010.
  13. Excellent views, lovely area, good for walking, all in all a very nice holiday. May 2010.
  14. Clean and tidy house, and well equipped kitchen. Friendly and helpful support and advice from the wonderful caretaker, Phil. April 2010.
  15. We loved the setting. April 2010.
  16. It was far bigger then the brochure photos gave the impression. We all felt very relaxed as soon as we arrived and the location was just excellent. Just the sound of sheep in the morning. A little isolated but the shear beauty of the location made up for this. Sept 2009.
  17. Great place to just relax, surrounded by trees with lots of wild life to look out for. The house was in a nice quiet area with lovely scenery, but you do need to like driving up twisty roads. Lots of nice walking near-by. Aug 2009.
  18. Location coupled with its availability for a weekend let. July 2009.
  19. Everything works - something that is not always the case in letting holiday accommodation. July 2009.
  20. Excellent accommodation, excellent area for touring, an all-round excellent holiday. May 2009.
