“Perfect home from home cottage in lovely little village”
Reviewed 5 November 2015 for a stay in October 2015

We stayed at North Lodge for 5 nights and LOVED every minute of it. Cottage was a home from home and much more than just a self catering accommodation. It had everything we could possibly need for our stay. Lovingly restored with many old artifacts, and a wonderful cosy log fire for the evenings. It's small and compact and perfect for a couple looking for a break away from the beaten track in a lovely little village with great walks and the Loch Awe on the doorstep. Crinan, Kilmartin, Cairbaan, Lochgilphead, Dunaad and Carnasserie Castle all within 5-20 minutes of a car drive. Beautiful forestry walks in Knapdale and the Beaver Trial all close enough to get to easily by a short car journey. We stocked up on coal and firelighters in Glasgow on the way but no need as the shop in Kilmartin had these. Breathtaking scenery and what a lovely cottage to come home to after a long day out sightseeing. Would definitely book it again.

“Cosy wee cottage”
Reviewed 21 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015
person found this review helpful

I stayed at North Lodge for three nights - a key advantage as most self-catering accept only 7 night bookings. Located in the tiny hamlet of Ford, the cottage is well-placed for exploring the rich archaeological sites around Kilmartin Glen and the beautiful nature reserves of Knapdale, Taynish and Moine Mhor.

The useable space within the cottage consists of only the ground floor as the upper two rooms are devoted to storage and a children's bedroom. Therefore the accommodation is only suitable for a maximum of 2 people or an individual. Despite the small size and low levels of natural light (due to dense surrounding tree cover) the cottage is very comfortable and well appointed with a decent kitchen, wood burning stove and TV/DVD/Wi Fi. A babbling stream flows past the garden with a seating area, and the cottage has a private and tranquil aspect. Thoroughly recommend this spot as a quiet getaway.
