“Modern , spotless cottage in great location”

Booked Bracken Cottage last minute for a 3 night stay. Property was extremely well presented and the owners obviously take great pride in maintaining the cottage to a high standard. We were welcomed by the owner who took the time to show us around , explain how things worked and gave us some information on the local area - she was a very genuine lady.

The property is about 3 miles or 10 mins out of Oban and as such is an ideal base for exploring the West Highlands, close enough to access civilisation - supermarkets and restaurants but far enough away to enjoy some peace. The cottage is well fitted out with dish washer , washing machine, drier etc so no need to compromise on the home comforts.

The cottage is located just off an A road but there's very little traffic and despite being a lightish sleeper it didn't disturb me at all.
Would definitely recommend

“More than home from home”
Reviewed 1 June 2014 for a stay in May 2014

This beautiful cottage is just outside Oban. We found it excellent for two couples as it has two bedrooms both with a bathroom, at opposite ends of the cottage, so we each had a certain amount of privacy. Everything was clean and comfortable. The kitchen is well equipped. Oban is a gem, a trip across to Mull is recommended. Plenty of places to eat out nearby.

We have just returned from a lovely week staying at Bracken Cottage. We have never been to Oban before.

The cottage was perfect for us. It is beautifully presented and has everything we needed. Susana the host is charming, and went out of her way to make our holiday special.

Although it looks traditional from the outside, the cottage is only a few years old so benefits from modern standards, including being warm.

The cottage is surrounded by a fence to stop our dog from roaming too far and there is loads of wildlife to see.

We would thoroughly recommend Bracken Cottage.

My daughter and I stayed here in April of this year and found it to be excellent. Susanna was most helpful. The cottage was comfortable and warm.
There was plenty of wildlife to watch. Oban was only five minutes away.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
