“Home from home”
Reviewed 26 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Fantastic stay yet again . This "cottage" (large rooms with high ceilings and galleried hallway) has everything you would have at home. Brilliant location and beautiful views. 5 minute walk to the Main Street with all amenities. Perfect for couples or families.

“Ideal base for exploring Mull”
Reviewed 26 June 2016 for a stay in June 2016
1
person found this review helpful

My mother and I experienced a very pleasurable week at Oakfield Cottage in Tobermory.

Oakfield Cottage is pleasantly decorated and furnished with all the features expected in a ‘home from home’. When sitting in the living room you can enjoy the steady stream of small birds coming to the feeding stations along with the hedgehog arriving at dusk.

It is situated about a 5 minute stroll from the Main Street where all manner of tourist experiences await as well as a plethora of bars, restaurants and cafés. The Mishnish (on Main Street towards the ferry terminal) provides good bar food and drink (real ale chilled unfortunately!) with Italian and seafood eateries attached. We cannot vouch for the seafood outlet but the Italian is well worth a visit and reasonably priced. The bars customers include a cross section of the local community along with a broad spectrum of international tourists, all usually willing to chat about anything and everything.

Café Fish which is situated near the ferry terminal is well worth a visit but booking is advised. MacGochans also has good bar food and beer.

The Isle of Mull Cheese farm is worth a visit for flavoursome cheddar and Hebridean Blue where an honesty box is used during the week.

Most villages and tourist spots have a café where snacks and sometimes lunches can be found.

In Tobermory, the must visit places include the Aquarium where entertaining and informative sessions are held by the ‘Ranger’, Tobermory Distillery, the Mull Museum, Isle of Mull Ice Cream, the Hebridean Whale and Dolphin Trust and Aros Park. Keep checking the bay where a wide variety of pleasure yachts and larger vessels make regular visits.

On the road (almost all single track!), I recommend Iona - set off early to avoid the mainland coaches and leave plenty of time (2 hoursish), Staffa - depart from Ulva Ferry in the morning and go to The Boathouse on Ulva for lunch upon your return, and Mull Eagle Watch for stunning views of very large birds (excellent value for £8). There are also several castles, numerous beaches and pleasant and strenuous walks worth thinking about.

While driving around keep your eyes peeled for otters and other wildlife. Remember not to park in passing places!

“The nicest way to stay on the Isle of Mull”
Reviewed 20 June 2016 for a stay in June 2016

The Isle of Mull is beautiful and the only town on the island, Tobermory, is a delightful place to stay. It is undeniably picturesque, has interesting shops and good restaurants. So it is a very popular place and can be quite crowded on the loch-side. Oakfield Cottage provides a superior way of staying on Mull. The front garden provides a lovely view of all that is going on the water. We slept well in the comfortable bedrooms whose windows can be left open and yet still be perfectly peaceful. A comfortable lounge. A well equipped kitchen.
But, best of all, is that the owner is always on hand to help and advise.
Even before we had arrived we were making frequent enquiries and Mrs Maclean responded without delay. When we were in residence she was always immediately available if we needed to talk to her.

Liked least: This is really nit-picking, but the property could do with a repeater wifi router in the premises.

“Comfortable cottage”

Jean and Alasdair have provided a spacious, comfortable and well equipped cottage. You can start exploring the island on foot from the front door, and the main street is only 5 minutes away,down hill. Jean kindly gave us some very interesting information.

An absolute delight to be able to stay in oakfield. Such a warm lovely home. Everything you could possibly want and need. Only a ten min walk into town, a great selection of shops. A great bus service that can take you round the full island. Hope to return at some point in the future , thanks again for making my holiday so comfortable .
