“Comfortable cottage in great location”
Reviewed 14 June 2017 for a stay in May 2017
person found this review helpful

Very comfortable, clean and well equipped cottage, with lovely little garden to sit in. Short 5 min drive down steep hill into Tobermory, we always found plenty of free parking there. Loved our stay on Isle of Mull, saw so much beautiful scenery and did lots of walking. Plenty of great tea rooms & cafes too! We ate at the Hebridean Lodge (5 mins walk from cottage) one evening and would definitely recommend it, but book first! We also enjoyed a great day out with "Discover Mull Wildlife Tour" - saw so many amazing birds and other animals.
Only one small niggle - the wifi didn't work properly in the cottage.

“Great holiday cottage”
Reviewed 27 March 2017 for a stay in March 2017
person found this review helpful

This is one of the best holiday houses we have stayed in. Clean, comfortable and a real home from home. We visited for a blustery few days in March, so the warm haven of the cottage was very welcome. Cottage is very well appointed, and great to relax in. It is located just before you reach Tobermory when coming from the ferry, and has a lovely craft shop, fish shop and restaurant across the lane. As we were there before the tourist season got underway, the restaurant didn't appear to be open. Hylda, the owner, is on site in Baliscate House, if there were any problems or queries (we had none - it was perfect). A short walk downhill to Tobermory sorted out Day 1 for us - which was fortunate as we decided on the Distillery tour while we were there. A word of warning - the hill back to Baliscate is steep! Tobermory itself is delightful with the distinctive buildings made famous in Balamory and several craft and specialist shops to browse in, as well as the harbour and several pubs and restaurants. Ploughman's Cottage is a perfect base from which to go exploring the island. Beds were comfortable, two ensuite bathrooms makes life easy and the kitchen and lounge are spacious and comfortable. Free wifi connection is a good point, although island connectivity is hit and miss!

“Lovely comfortable Cottage”
Reviewed 27 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015
people found this review helpful

My wife and I have just returned from a week staying in Ploughman's Cottage, which has to be one of the best holiday cottages we have stayed at. The cottage is very clean, tidy, well equipped, decorated and furnished. The cottage is one of several at Balliscate House which is set back from the main road out of Tobermory, but only about 10 minutes walk and 2 minutes drive down to the Harbour. The location is very quiet but there is a fabulous Restaurant just round the corner, The Hebridean Lodge 2 minutes walk away. The friendly owner of the properties Hylda lives opposite and so is on hand to sort out any problems ( we had no problems)and provide local advice.
This Cottage would be ideal for 2 couples sharing or a small family with 2 children, as there are 2 Bathrooms upstairs and a downstairs toilet/washroom.

Thank you Andrew, we're so glad to hear that you had an enjoyable stay at Ploughmans cottage - as you say, it is in an ideal location, just outside of town with the amazing Hebridean Lodge just around the corner.
