Customer Reviews of Auchinellen House, nr Oban - Sleeps 13

1st comment: One of our favourite holiday houses. Real home for home. Try and go every year, great value for money. Jan 2012.

2nd comment: We had a fantastic time, the house and surrounding woodlands were fabulous, the children loved the fact that there was no boundaries for them, the house is very well equipped but would benefit from a larger cooker, i would recommend you take an iron with you, as their iron is not that good, we can’t wait to go back. Aug 2011.

3rd comment: Fantastic value for the weekend, great location with views over the loch. June 2011.

4th comment: The house was lovely, with plenty of space for a large party to spread out. Home from home with everything you could need, great heating, and puzzles galore next to the open fire for an old fashioned family evening in. Grounds excellent and never ending, caretaker always available when needed. Location away from it all, peace and tranquillity but still only 20mins from a small town and supermarket. Feb 2011.
