Ash Lodge, near Dunoon. Pet friendly budget accommodation sleeps 2
Mr Iain Fleming
Great stay at Ash Lodge!
We really enjoyed our stay at Ash Lodge! Very clean, cosy and quick responses from the owners. It was great value for money. The surrounding area is absolutely beautiful! And we enjoyed a great dinner at the Whistleford pub just up the road. Highly recommended and thanks for our stay.
To be aware, it's not completely secluded, with similar lodges neighbouring but it's at the bottom so you don't look out onto anyone.
Fine lodge for relaxing
The lodge has everything you'd need, and is situated in a nice green environment. Like other reviews already suggested, it is part of a lodge 'park', and is quite close to the street. Because of that, it's not very quiet, but otherwise fine. When we arrived, the lodge wasn't cleaned, but that was rectified quickly after giving Chris a call. We can recommend the Whistlefield Inn, which has very friendly personnel. The Benmore Botanical Garden just around the corner is also really worth the visit.
Follow signs for the Erskine bridge after passing Glasgow Airport. Cross the bridge and follow the signs for Inveraray and Oban. After the Rest and Be Thankful turn left onto the A815 and follow signs for Dunoon.
Pass through the village of Strachur then approx 5 miles further on see signs for Whistlefield Inn on the left hand side. Drive up the road past the entrance to the Whistlefield Inn and the entrance to the lodges is on the right.
Ash lodge is on the lower level with parking close-by.
On the Dunoon side, turn right from the terminal and follow the road until you come to a T junction at Sandbank. Turn right and continue on this road (A815 signposted for Glasgow).
After passing the Cot House Service Station look out for the Whistlefield Inn on the right hand side(approx 6 miles). Slow right down here as the road to the Lodges comes up immediately on the right. Drive up the road past the entrance to the Whistlefield Inn and the
entrance to the lodges is on the right. Ash Lodge is on the lower level of lodges with parking close-by.
