This is a lovely cottage with everything you need for a relaxing stay. The cottage is only a few minutes walk from town with lots of great restaurants to visit. There is a convenience store a short walk away where you can get milk, bread etc. The most enjoyable part of our stay was being able to watch and listen to the birds in the garden whilst eating breakfast - bliss :)
We Stayed at Garden Cottage from 21 December 2017 until 04 January 2018 for the Christmas and New Year Holidays.
As we are originally from Helensburgh (now living in Dubai), we wanted to stay somewhere which was home from home. Garden Cottage certainly provided us with that feeling. We arrived around 9pm at night and Angela was waiting for us and had ensured the house was warm and cosy for our arrival. She had also left a lovely Christmas Card and Chocolate Orange to welcome us to the Cottage. A lovely personal touch.
The Cottage is around 5 mins walk from Helensburgh town centre, where there are plenty of Restaurants, Bars and Shops. We stayed at the Cottage with our two boys (5 and 14), and they enjoyed playing in the large garden when the snow fell during our stay! The house is cosy and warm, and very well equipped. There is also off street parking.
We will certainly return to Garden Cottage again and have already recommend this to our friends and family who will certainly make use of the Cottage I am sure.
Garden Cottage is in a great location only 5 minutes walk from Helensburgh town centre, and even closer to the seafront. There is off street parking for three cars, and a safe enclosed garden on three sides of the house.
The house is cosy and warm, and extremely well equipped - there was nothing we needed that wasn’t provided.
There are some very good restaurants in Helensburgh - we’d recommend the Riverhill, where we had a lovely Jamaican curry.
Hill House (Charles Rennie Macintosh house) is just up the road and we’ll worth a visit, and Loch Lomond and Lomond Shores (Sea Life Centre) only 9 miles away.
There are regular trains into Glasgow, and the rail journey north travels through some stunning scenery.
Wow! What a perfect location and cottage. Personal little touches for our late night arrival; so thoughtful which made it special. The cottage exceeded our expectations and the location is excellent. Thank you for making our stay brilliant. Local restaurants are great value for money. Lots of walks and scenery excellent. Will definitely be back soon A*
Travelled with son daughter in law and 6 month grandson visiting friends and relatives in Helensburgh and Glasgow. Cottage perfect, spotless, everything we needed, lovely private garden. Close to station, shops and restaurants, takeaways, seafront. Highly recommend. Only suggestion is that maybe put in some sort of information booklet, couldn't work out how to use the stove in the lounge or turn off the extractor in the bathroom, where to leave keys when leaving (no-one answered next door so had to leave them in porch) and maybe a recycling food caddie and compostable bags in kitchen? Small things though and didn't detract from our visit at all.
