We stayed in the Achaleven byre for 4 nights and have to say it was perfect.The host is very friendly and welcoming and everything yo could possibly need is provided including delicious breakfast cereals.It is situated just a short drive from Oban.We loved our stay and the peaceful surrondings and would not hesitate to recommend this accommodation to friends.

The Byre is really peaceful (apart from the Cockerel!), very clean & well maintained. It is very cosy and well equipped. We were able to have visitors for lunch one day and there was plenty of room for us all. (6 adults and 3 small children!) Beata is very friendly, she makes you feel welcome & relaxed from the moment you arrive with her thoughtful hospitality. We are looking forward to returning to the Byre, the next time we are back In Connel.

Good:
Nice location.
Host very friendly and helpful
Easy access to Oban, only 10 min drive
Ample parking
Lovely garden -we had our breakfast outside almost every day
Well equipped kitchen, cereals,seeds etc

Not so great:
Bedroom quite small with not much daylight getting in
No bath in the bathroom, only shower.
As the cottage is next door to a farm expect to be woken up at dawn by roosters

Overall, a nice place to stay and explore beautiful area of Scotland

We took 2 of our children to Achaleven Byre in May and had a fantastic time. The accommodation was clean and tidy and had everything we could possibly need. Just like being at home. The facilities in and around Oban are amazing and we had one of the best holidays ever. Would highly recommend the accommodation and the area to anyone. Will definitely be back for another visit. The children cannot wait until next year.

This was our 5th visit to Achaleven Byre - as usual everything was clean and tidy and Beata was her usual accommodating self. We hired bikes and were able to store them in the shed. Liked the cockerels from the next door farm. We would thoroughly recommend the self-catering byre. Roll on our next visit. It is a very convenient location for walkers and cyclists as well as being close to Oban.

This cottage is just a great wee place for a getaway from the stressful everyday life.

When we arrived we were warmly welcomed by the owner and when we opened the door we discovered a bright, well decorated good size cottage with a large double door into a private garden.

The place was sparkling clean and all appliances, bathroom, towels, mattress and furniture were of great quality and very new.

We sat in the garden for hours to enjoy a glass of wine watching the rabbits come close and the goats walk on a rock that was just a few meters away. It was just a very idyllic scenery and very calm.

There was great attention to detail and we even found our towels folded up on the bed with a welcome chocolate on top...like in a Marriott Hotel.

As well there was not only tea and coffee but as well a large selection of cereals and a fresh jar of milk in the fridge.

The owner was very nice and she offered support for anything we would have wanted.

If you are looking for a quiet, nice, well decorated place close to the Lochs and Oban this place is not to be missed.

5 stars throughout as we enjoyed our stay very much!

Thanks, T&C

Had the absolute pleasure of staying here for 5 days on our first trip to Scotland. The accommodations were superb; clean, quiet, comfortable, roomy but cozy. The view is fantastic and the garden lovely. A short drive will take you into beautiful Oban. Really hated to leave but looking forward to going back.
