After staying at Pipers Cottage earlier in the year, (one of the other Great North Cottages) we decided to try Sleepy Bear Cottage and we were not disappointed! During the day we took a short drive to Ganavan beach which has some excellent views. We bought some fresh seafood by the seafront to cook later that night. The kitchen was well equipped and we thoroughly enjoyed eating in with the log fire on. Everything about the stay was perfect.. the beds were externally comfortable, 2 showers, large garden and an outdoor hot tub was fantastic for relaxing in and staring at the stars.
Found the cottage by luck on tripadviser having exhausted the usual high profile websites! An excellent discovery! The cottage was spacious and very well appointed. The bed was comfortable and the hot tub a great addition to the garden. The wood burning stove, although not needed by us unfortunately, will make the living room very cosy in winter. A short drive from Oban which has some good restaurants makes this cottage an ideal booking for those wanting space and views together with convenience and access. Altogether an enjoyable stay.
I rented this beautiful cottage for my family of 4 adults and we all loved it. Very well equipped and a very peaceful location but only a short drive to Oban . The location of this cottage is great for exploring the area. Great restaurant bar 1 mile along the road called Barn bar. The hot tub was great at night after a day sight seeing. The only downside to the location was we had a dog with us also and to give the dog a decent walk i had to drive about a mile down the road to get a good safe walk for the dog. Also received my deposit the day after i left the cottage and the communication from Matthew the owner was excellent.
But overall i would recommend this cottage and would rent it again in the future.
Stayed at the cottage with my disabled mum in June. It's incredibly difficult finding suitable properties for her but this one was great. Cottage equipped to very high standard, lovely setting and close to Oban. Only minor suggestion would be to have some outside furniture. It was lovely weather when we were there and we'd have braved the midgies and eaten outside if we could have. Hot tub is magic - great way to relax at end of day. Would recommend this to anyone who is looking for a break away from it all in a lovely part of Scotland.
The cottage is approx 7mins drive away from Oban town which was perfect. The rooms were comfy and clean. The hot tub is definitely worth it! Looking forward to stay again!
100% recommend, great homely feel! Great location not to far from Oban! Owner Matthew very fast replies, and very helpful!
