    About this property

    Craobh Haven Cottages - Traditional Seaside Homes

    Situated right beside the sea, Islay Cottage combines the warmth and comfort of home with wonderful, unspoilt views of many West Coast islands from Jura to Mull. Traditionally built for local character and charm, the cottage has timber beams and an open fireplace built with local stone. Fitted and furnished to an award-winning standard throughout, the cottage is cleaned and cared for every week by the owners. The open-plan downstairs has a west-facing sitting area with comfy chairs, open fire, digital TV, DVD/video, CD player, telephone and free WiFi. The kitchen and dining area is to the rear, with open views to the woods behind. In the kitchen we provide high quality crockery, cutlery, and equipment, including a dishwasher, large fridge/freezer, microwave oven, washing machine and tumble drier. Upstairs has a west-facing master bedroom with 5ft king-sized bed, fitted wash basin, generous storage and sea views. The twin bedded room has views to the rear. Bath and hand towels, duvets with covers, sheets and pillowcases are all provided. All electricity, and coal for the open fire, is provided at no extra cost. Well behaved pets are welcome, subject to charges and certain conditions. The small, friendly village of Craobh Haven (pronounced 'croove', after the Gaelic for a small tree or shrub) lies about 20 miles south of Oban, just north of Ardfern. There are many things to do locally including boat trips, horse riding, bird and sealife spotting and spectacular walks.

      A wonderful adventure

      As a family if 4 (2 under 9!), it is always a challenge finding a holiday that will engage and suits us all - this one certainly did that. The cottage was extremely welcoming and clean and the beds - oh so comfortable! A fire was already set in the hearth when we arrived, just needing a match - this was a lovely touch. The view was amazing, so lovely to sip wine whilst watching the sun set in the harbour. Lots to do too, we took a boat trip with Duncan, (highly recommend), spent much time in Inveraray, (castle and jail a must), lots of walking and even managed to take a day trip to the Isle of Mull. We left with a thirst for more. Highly recommend.

        Sehr schöne,ruhige und saubere Unterkunft

        Saubere und gut ausgestattete Unterkunft, gemütliche Atmosphäre mit Kamin. Sehr ruhige und landschaftlich wunderschöne Lage mit Blick auf den kleinen Hafen und vorgelagerte Inseln. Ein gutes Restaurant mit kleinem Laden für die nötigsten Dinge direkt im Ort, ebenso eine Teestube. Für einen ruhigen erholsamen Urlaub sowie sportliche Aktivitäten sehr zu empfehlen.

        5/5 Excellent

          Sehr geschmackvoll mit viel Liebe eingerichtetes Cottage mit Blick aufs Meer und Kamin.

          In dem Cottage gab es alles was man braucht. Geschirr und Gläser waren ausreichend vorhanden.Die Möbel einschließlich Bett hatten eine gute Qualität und waren bequem. Durch den Kamin könnte man auch die kalten, verregneten Tage genießen. Wir haben uns rundherum wohl gefühlt. In der Nähe (2 min zu Fuß) gibt es einen netten Pup mit einer guten Speisekarte. Allerdings sind die Einkaufsmöglichkeiten begrenzt. Bis Oban sind es ca 20 Meilen, dort ist der nächste Supermarkt und auch alles andere was man braucht.
