“A Tranquil Retreat”
Reviewed 16 October 2016 for a stay in September 2016

Crosple Cottage, tucked away on an Argyll hillside, provides complete privacy without being remote. Very quiet too - even the sheep, occasionally gazing through the fence which surrounds the property, didn't disturb the peace when we were there.

On arrival we were warmly welcomed by Jenni, co-owner of the property. Later, on one of our walks, we met Rory, her husband, and had a friendly, entertaining and informative chat.

Though the Cottage accommodates only two persons it is not at all cramped and we very quickly settled in to our temporary holiday home. In particular we appreciated the cleanliness, warmth, very comfortable bed, power shower and hot water always on tap.

We packed a lot into our short stay and plan to return for a longer spell, and a rest.
Tasteful décor, homeliness and a warm welcome no doubt all contribute to the relaxed ambiance of Crosple Cottage, a very special place, in every way worthy of its 5 star status.

Liked best: The privacy.
Liked least: The coombed ceiling in the bedroom though this was never a problem even for my husband who is 5' 11" tall.

“Little piece of paradise”
Reviewed 26 September 2016 for a stay in August 2016

We had a fantastic week at Crosple Cottage. It is beautifully appointed, cosy, clean and complete with everything you need. The setting is gorgeous and we enjoyed having our meals watching the sheep and looking out over the loch. The owners have thoughtfully put together lots of information on the surrounding areas, including details of walks from the cottage which were lovely. It was good to meet Rory and Jennie, both were friendly, warm and the welcome(and delicious!) home made cake and a bottle of wine was a nice touch.

Being able to arrange a groceries delivery so that the cottage was stocked when we arrived was a real bonus, and anything else we needed was easy to get in Oban, which is a short drive, has a good butcher and fish and chips.

We didn't want to leave - staying at Crosple Cottage was like a perfect bubble and we hugely enjoyed this little piece of paradise. No doubt we will return - it felt like a real home from home.

“Outstanding”
Reviewed 29 June 2016 for a stay in June 2016

What a truly wonderful place.The setting is stunning.If you need peace and quiet you get plenty of that . It would be easy just to lounge around here for days.There is also lots to do round and about if you are feeling like being more active . The cottage is equipped with everything you'll need including those little extras such as bathrobes and toiletries Also fresh flowers,cake and wine to greet you.Don't bring CD's or DVD's,the Smart TV has lots to keep you entertained and there are well stocked book shelves too.
The friendly and helpful owners live nearby should you need them.
We spent a fabulous week here and would highly recommend.

Crosple cottage is the perfect get-away location. A beautifully finished cottage that blends charm with modern day convenience, set in simply stunning scenery. Almost hesitate to post this review, giving away our fantastic minimoon find to everyone else. We loved it.
