This is an amazing house. Great for all the family and the dog loved the huge enclosed garden. We have stayed in lots of cottages for over 20 years and this is the first review I have ever written. a fantastic find and we will definitely be booking it again. Dawn from Durham (06 April 2015)

Secluded great location. Cottage was clean and tidy. Great for dogs. Andy from Rochdale (27 March 2015)
There are a lot of plus points for this property. Contemporary design, layout, location, and every probable piece of equipment you'd need is there, from maps to a sewing kit. The enclosed large garden is a big plus for dog owners, especially as there are sheep virtually on the doorstep. We had glorious sun for most of the weeks stay and the large south (ish) facing glass windows allowed the house to heat up to a very comfortable level for the time of year. (yes the heating system and or log fire worked perfectly too). the house is exactly as described, but there is one reason we wouldn't stay there again which i'll end with. Nearby knapdale forest has a multitude of tracks to walk on or mountain bike, plus the beaver trail is nearby too. wildlife everywhere you look. Not sure if a disabled or infirm person would manage too well in the property, though there are only about ten steps in total in the split level house, a few from the lower floor to main living area, and then a few more to the kitchen or smaller bedroom at the back. The showers are powerful and plenty of hot water,. the main bed is on the firm side but that's a preference thing, there was nothing wrong with it. We had no need to use the smaller bedroom. We arrived on the back of some wet weather on the west coast of scotland (does it do anything else?) but we never had a days rain all the time we were there which leads to my last point. The water supply is 'private'. i'm not sure if it's a well, or what? but we immediately noticed the supply to the house was discoloured a brown peaty colour on arrival. A call to the keyholder provided the explanation it had been raining heavily and this was the cause. The water I was assured was safe to drink and was treated by a system under the house. By running the taps it 'may' runner clearer. It hardly did all week. Very off putting running a bath that looked like a cup of tea without the milk in it, never mind drinking it. Cue trip to the shop and extra expense to buy bottled water. Maybe we were unlucky? only one other family had made mention of it in the guestbook from around 2 years ago. I've still rated this house highly as it was very nice otherwise. David from Newcastle Upon Tyne (20 March 2015)
We loved this house and it's location, the garden was great for our dog, we hope to return in the future. Wendy (26 September 2014)
This cottage is absolutely fabulous - a real home from home as it's so well appointed. the setting is extremely quiet, at the top of a no through road, so hardly any traffic. the area it's in is fabulous for anyone who likes tranquility, wildlife spotting and great views. we totally fell in love with it and will definitely visit again. Claire from Swansea (29 August 2014)
Fantastic house in a beautiful location. Feels remote but lots of walks from the door and a huge garden. Lots to do in the area and a good variety of wild life. The house is stocked with everything you could possibly need! Cathy (08 August 2014)
We wanted somewhere quiet we could walk and cycle from. Jamila (18 July 2014)
We would be happy to return David from Wells (02 May 2014)
Excellent property and location. Quiet and relaxing holiday with superb walks to suit everyone on the doorstep. Unspoilt area but be prepared that no shops close by and ensure that you take sufficient for at least the first few days of your holiday. Mr T from Wetherby (20 July 2011)
A fantastic home from home! A lovely cottage which far exceeded our expectations as was even nicer than the pictures! Lots of nice walks in the area and beautiful scenery. The view from the living room each evening was breathtaking. Miss S from Crewe (08 June 2011)
The cottage is a home from home. The value for money is great, this is the best Hoseasons cottage we have been to, for standard of accommodation. The views are fabulous.It is the type of cottage, where you don't want to leave. The peace and tranquillity, makes you completely relax. You just know that going home to Achabeg after a day out, will be a stress-free evening, with a glass of something nice in your hand and only the birds and sheep to listen to.Many Thanks to the owners for allowing us experiance this.

Highly recommended to special doggies with well behaved, hard working owners in need of a place to recharge their batteries and explore some of the beautiful, and diverse qualities Mid Argyll area has to offer. A bright, spacious, modern house with big grassy garden. Don't really want to spread the word about this place cos we want to book it again, it's a gem. Mrs C from Kendal (08 May 2011)
The location is daily remote but a town within 20 miles. The cottage was set in a wonderful place. Mr J from Weymouth (11 April 2011)
Yes I will recommend Mr A from Dundee (27 March 2011)
Highly recommend Achabeg if you want to explore Argyle - best holiday home yet of many that we have stayed at - very well equipped with stunning views west to the Paps of Jura, there are many country walks in the very near vicinity including one from Achabeg itself up a tree clad forest track to a lochan providing stunning views over to Tayvillich. Would definitely like to return to Achabeg. Mr S from Aberdeen (07 November 2010)
Beautiful location. Mrs S from Alloa (19 October 2010)
