Customer Reviews of Teapot Cottage, Gairlochy - Sleeps 6
1st comment: Lovely location and a very well equipped cottage. The owner was helpful and friendly. The local wildlife (deer and hares) in the field beyond the garden was an added attraction. My little grand-daughter loved the paddling pool we found in the shed. June 2012.
2nd comment: Teapot cottage was just the best place to spend our holiday. The cottage itself is lovely and it’s location on the caledonian canal just great for watching the boats. Our welcome from the owner was lovely , homemade Victoria sandwich, fresh flowers and if the hens had laid we would have had fresh eggs oh and fresh milk. So kind and thoughtful of her. Cottage was spotless and had everything we needed, even down to games and hot water bottles (which we didn’t need). June 2012.
3rd comment: We had an excellent welcome from the owner, including tea, milk fresh eggs and a lovely homemade cake. Despite the weather, we had a fantastic week in Teapot cottage, which is just a short walk from the Caledonian Canal. It is furnhished to a high standard and very comfortable. April 2012.
4th comment: We had a wonderful holiday at Teapot Cottage in Feb. It was spacious, very well laid out and superbly equipped - an absolute pleasure to return to after a day’s walking in the rain! The owner was very welcoming and helpful and the little extras she had included made all the difference (cake and fresh flowers). I am quite certain we will be back. Feb 2012.
5th comment: This is a wonderful place to stay in the most perfect of spots just yards from the Caledonian Canal. The rear of the property backs onto open fields with views of the mountains and we were lucky enough to be able to sit out and enjoy them a couple of times although it was the end of September. The property is new, spacious and spotless and the owner is very friendly welcoming us with a lovely cake, milk, eggs and flowers. It is the perfect place to stay and we would definitely return. Sept 2011.
6th comment: The cottage was way above our expectation. The property has all the modern facilities and yet it is so close to nature. The landlady was very accommodating and welcoming. It was nice of her for the cake,flowers,egg and milk when we arrived. There are many places to explore around the property and enjoyed the nature walks. Excellent location for a perfect relaxing and peaceful holiday. Would definitely to friends and will visit it again. Oct 2011.
