Peace and quiet
Lovely cottage and our hosts Amanda and Peter were friendly and helpful ,nearly forgot Cassie the little dog .
We had a lovely stay in the cottage. Peaceful location with a home away from home feel.
I would highly recommend Bar N’a Criche cottage . It is an ideal retreat from the hustle and bustle of every day life, a very comfortable place to wind down and enjoy the beautiful coastline of Argyll
A glorious spot, so unspoilt and bubbling with wildlife. We hardly got in our car all week as we were so happy exploring the surrounding woods, rocks and coast. The house is a delight and owners lovely. A week wasn't long enough.
Took a break for a few days needing to get away to think and relax. We definitely picked the right place from the welcoming smile of Amanda as we drove up to a knight in shining armour dropping of a pint of milk because we forgot! , to the comfortable accommodation only beaten by the beautiful views. We will be back......
Everything you would want from a cottage in the country
Arriving late on a Friday night we were met with the most beautiful country cottage. Straight in to start the fire and with no phone signal to the outside world it was bliss. Woke up Saturday to stunning surroundings and the cottage has everything you need to be comfortable. It feels like a proper escape from the world and we would love to return one day.
Beautiful quiet location with stunning views
Wonderful homely cottage with everything you need, the kitchen is well stocked, and there is a good selection of dvds and books. The owners leave you to it, but are amazingly helpful if needed. We had a 15 year old and a 12 year old with us and they didn't miss the Internet at all. There was so much to do from exploring the woods, to playing in rockpools to swimming in the loch, where we were lucky enough to be joined by seals. I would highly recommend this cottage if you want some peace and quiet and family time together in an absolutely amazing location. A truly special place.
