We went as a family of 7, 3 of which were children and all of us thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Quivive Cottage. The house was very warm and welcoming. A lot of thought has gone into making it a very pleasant experience, it was very well equipped. There was a good selection of entertainment. The log fire and the beautiful scenery surrounding the cottage was the highlight of our stay in the house. Would definitely Re visit!
Lovely house in a fabulous location, close enough to all amenities but perfectly out the way to feel remote and peaceful. Lovely rooms and well equipped. We only struggled slightly between 8 of us with the smallish kitchen bin but no other complaints. Great collection of games & books & outdoor space is really nice.
Two minutes drive from centre of Brodick, this spacious, well appointed and tastefully furnished home is in the ideal location to base your stay on Arran. The beds are wonderfully comfortable and the kitchen is very well equipped. Two large sofas provide ample seating for relaxation or viewing the 60 inch HD TV. Being in such a central position on the island means that restaurants, bars and shops and the many beaches and attractions for children are all within easy distance of the property. We had a wonderful time - enjoying living in Quivive just as much as going out visiting all our favourite places every day. We're returning for a second stay at this great property later this year.
A family of 6 adults and 2 toddlers for a week in this spacious and very well equipped house was fabulous. Well located just outside Brodick and breathtaking views from the house. House was in very good condition and everything you need. Highly recommend.
We stayed here with friends and I hadn’t even made it through the door into the cottage before deciding this was going to be perfect. You’ve got a wonderful view of Goatfell in one direction and Brodick bay laid out below you.
The cottage has everything a group could want - comfortable beds, clean smart bathrooms, a cosy lounge, a very well equipped kitchen and a conservatory with comfortable chairs to sit and enjoy those stunning views.
Admittedly we got a week of good weather but Arran has a lot to offer whatever the conditions. My partner and I love walking and there’s everything from strong hiking on Corbett’s, to shorter more relaxed walking in beautiful glens, around lochs and along cliff tops and beaches.
Our friends are passionate about wildlife and as previous visitors to Arran were able to show us good places to see otters, seals, deer, and a variety of birds.
There are a number of places to eat out and get a good meal but most nights it was easier to eat in and make use of the excellent facilities at the cottage.
We had an amazing week and it was always a joy to return to Quivive at the end of the day for a well earned drink and the opportunity to sit in front of the log burner reviewing the day’s adventures.
Both Quivive and Arran are highly recommended.
