“Beautiful Escape ”
Reviewed 20 May 2018 for a stay in May 2018

Wonderful stay at Benmore Byre. The cottage itself is exceptional! All the charm of a building with history combined with modern convenience - particularly appreciative of the heated floor in the bathroom and the excellent showers! The views are indescribable and I don’t think I’ve ever breathed fresher air or slept more soundly! Hosts were also great, true scottish hospitality! If you need an escape to recharge your batteries and sooth your soul, look no further! We enjoyed beautiful sunny weather, saw lambs bounding in the surrounding fields, wandered around the botanic gardens near by and loved every minute. Easy to find and only an hour and a half from Glasgow (ferry and driving route almost equidistant). Dunoon is only 10 mins by car too, great if you fancy a night out snuck in amidst your retreat to nature. Highly recommended.

“Great weekend”
Reviewed 23 May 2017 for a stay in May 2017

We had a great weekend in the cottage! Located around 10 minutes from the centre of Dunoon it was a quiet area, but handy enough if we needed to jump out for anything. Cottage was exactly how we expected and was perfect for what we were looking for. Will recommend!

“Excellent agin”
Reviewed 10 January 2017 for a stay in November 2016

Having stopped in both properties the Byre is bigger but is finished to the same excellent standard with a great attention to detail.
Six of us had both the Byre and Stables for a five day "Waking" break it was ideal.
We saw a red deer hind and a calf from the Kitchen window and numerous red squirrels.
Well done Kayren, keep up standard up. We have already booked in for next November

“Perfect accommodation with great views from the Kitchen/diner”
Reviewed 10 September 2016 for a stay in June 2015

This place is stunning and we would highly recommend to anyone who really wants to escape the rat race. Surrounded by forest, hills, streams and lochs, you really do feel Scotland. When we first travelled here we planned lots of days out, but actually we now realise we have all we need on our door steps. Dunoon is just a short car journey away and there're lots of walks nearby to choose from, including the gorgeous Pucks Glen. Benmore Botanic Gardens are literally a 2 minute walk away and in fact you can even see the famous avenue of Redwoods from the Kitchen area. The property is great with all you need and your hosts are lovely and although this is a working farm, you rarely hear a peep out of anyone or anything apart from the occasional swallow chirping by.
