Customer Reviews of Springburn Cottage, Strachur - Sleeps 4-5
1st comment: It was one of the best holidays we have ever had. Val was lovely, so good to us and the cottage was immaculate. Weather was terrible but all the more reason to stay in the cosy cottage with candles and a glowing fire, magic! Jan 2012.
2nd comment: Springburn Cottage is an absolute delight. We only saw it during rather inclement weather but it would, I am sure, be a wonderful spot in the summer. Val is an excellent host and is very attentive to everyone’s needs. The cottage has all the fixtures and fittings to make your holiday comfortable and yet it still maintains its old world charm and cosiness. Stachur is a very good base for exploring the Cowal peninsular and Bute yet it is only 1.5 hours over to Oban and the west coast. Some past visitors to Springburn Cottage have even made it onto Mull for a day. Excellent restaurants and inns abound around the shores of Loch Fyne. What could you want more. Oct 2011.
3rd comment: It was a really lovely place. Proper hot water and heating, plus an open fire meant that the wet weather didn’t matter so much. Very friendly reception from Val the owner. Little things like having tea and coffee (and hot chocolate!), sugar, and condiments were a pleasant surprise. We really enjoyed being there. Oct 2011.
4th comment: We had a lovely welcome gift when we arrived at this charming cottage. The owner was very friendly and the cottage itself was like a family home. July 2011.
5th comment: This is a lovely cottage, beautifully decorated and in a lovely position on loch Fyne and we had a very relaxing and completely enjoyable holiday. The owner is very welcoming (Choc and Wine waiting for us and juice and grapes for the return journey - very thoughtful) and knowledgeable about the area. The Loch is across the road from the property with some stunning views. Slight downside, but only slight as we would stay here again, there was no shower and entirely my fault but I hadn’t spotted that the second bedroom wasn’t a twin not ideal for children but there was a sofa bed. April 2011.
