“Really enjoyable stay”
Reviewed 20 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015
person found this review helpful

We stayed at Kelpie Cottage for four days at the start of July and found it to be a great location from which to explore the island.

The cottage is still undergoing renovation as per the description but we didn't find anything that lessened our enjoyment.

In particular, the two bedrooms upstairs retain original features and were comfortable and very well presented.

The kitchen is modern and well stocked and the living room is very cosy.

In terms of location, everything in Tarbert is within a 10 minute walk (even with a two year old!).

Our daughter loved the playpark in the school across the road - it was trumped only by the beach at Luskentyre!

Can't wait to go back and see the fully finished cottage!
