“Welcoming family home on the shores of the loch”
Reviewed 15 January 2017 for a stay in January 2017

We stayed for a week in January to celebrate my 60th birthday with four adult children with spouses and partners and one grandchild. The house is spacious with a generous living room with space for several simultaneous activities.

The house has stunning views out over the loch, which is literally 50 feet from the front door. One daughter and son in law swam on new years day.

The narrow road down the peninsular is ideal for a four mile run and there is a walk with wide west coast views at the end as well as a nice short circular walk half way down and some interesting paths behind the house.

The local hotel is friendly and its bar as cosy and welcoming as you could find anywhere in the world. It is less than half an hour drive to Oban which has ferries to Mull and elsewhere.

It was a lovely staying in the winter (the weather was kind - sunny and cold apart from a couple of says of drizzle) but I would return to see it in the summer.

Highly recommended
Maggie

We are glad that you had a good time and that the house was a suitable base for all your activities. Swimming in the loch at New Year was brave and, no doubt, very refreshing! We hope to see you again in the summer when the water is slightly warmer.

“A fantastic Xmas holiday”
Reviewed 31 December 2016 for a stay in December 2016

We stayed here for a week over Christmas and had a fantastic time. The house had every thing you could need an more. Beds were comfy and clean. The local shop which is minutes away sold every thing u could need, but Tesco delivered our food for the week, which was fantastic.
The owners were very approachable and helpful.
We had two children who loved our trip too. The weather was good for us, so some fishing in the loch and lots of walks with the dogs. Would definitely be recommending it and would like to see melford in the summer.

“Lovely house in beautiful location”
Reviewed 1 August 2016 for a stay in July 2016

We had a lovely week in a fantastic house. We had fun kayaking on the loch, whiskey tasting, cycling and walking. The highlight was taking Duncan's Farsain Cruise boat out to see seals, porpoises and sea eagles. Missing it already.

“Great location - well equipped property”
Reviewed 8 July 2015 for a stay in June 2015

Ideal for family get togethers, plenty of room and easy to settle into. Well equipped kitchen and a lovely dining room. Beds comfortable and with 3 bathrooms there is space for all.
Outings in all directions - island visits, bikes routes and such a nice garden to play in and enjoy. When the weather is settled it is beautiful to sit out and enjoy the wonderful views.
The sands at Ganavan are very nice for young people and the trip to Luing with bikes is well worth a visit. Also Kerrera using the ferry south of Oban - peaceful walking to the Kitchen Garden cafe and Gylen castle.

“Excellent accommodation in great location.”
Reviewed 3 September 2014 for a stay in August 2014

Character house in a great location on the shore of Loch Melfort. Inside the house was well appointed and comfortable with a great family atmosphere.
Views across the loch were terrific and the house was an ideal base for touring the area.
