4 bedroom accommodation in near Kames
A brilliant getaway destination
We loved staying at Woodend - all 8 adults of us - and it never felt crowded. We had everything we needed kitchen-wise, even things we didn't think of like coffee pots and cake mixers. Brendan was a friendly, helpful and charming host, but never intrusive. The pigs, piglets (10 of them!) were gorgeous - a great eco way to get rid of our food scraps ... and the sausages Brendan gifted us were delicious (gulp!), along with the most generous of welcome packs (if we'd missed the shop we wouldn't have starved for a day with his milk, eggs, butter, cheese and fruit). Geese and ducks and chickens rule the roost and chickens scratch around the yard. It must be the most laid back place in the world. We saw seals a-plenty and red squirrels and deer, though the sea otters and eagles eluded us. The outlook to Arran is stunning and it's fun to take the ferry to Tarbert. We spent a blissful day at the Portaverdie spa (£12), with its heated outdoor infinity pool and jacuzzis. Log fires in the evening, toasting marshmallows. We highly recommend this accommodation! Thank You!
