Scottish Country Cottages

From a touch of luxury to characterful heritage, experience one of our truly inspiring holiday properties.


With one of the most admired views in Scotland over the Kyles of Bute, The Coach House offers an ideal family base.

"Surrounded by 150 acres of glorious wooded grounds, abundant in wildlife. . ."

Amidst a glorious landscape of unspoilt wooded glens, fragmented coastline, stunning sea lochs and breathtaking bays, the delightful cottages at Home Farm nestle in the peaceful wooded valley of the River Ruel. The steading and cottages, formerly the home farm to the estate, have been lovingly restored and are very comfortably furnished in contemporary Scottish style.
Their spacious courtyard setting affords each of them a sense of privacy and they all boast access to 150 acres of wooded grounds, abundant in bird and wildlife, with free trout and salmon fishing on the Ruel - the fishing hut provides an ideal picnic spot. One of the most admired views in Scotland, The Kyles of Bute, awaits discovery just 6 miles away, as do the tranquil village of Tighnabruaich’s lovely natural bays, sandy beach, shops, restaurants and 9 hole golf course. Colintraive (9 miles) offers a pub serving good food and there is a summer shop (limited opening hours) adjacent to Home Farm. Beach 5 miles. Shop 13 miles, pub and restaurant 7 miles.

    Absolutely amazing place. Everything has been thought of. This was our 3rd visit and we're already planning a 4th. This place is luxury. If I could score higher than 10 I would. It is worth every single one of its 5 stars.

    Beautiful property, in a lovely area, close to fabulous scenic drives & nice pubs & places to see. It had everything you needed for a first class self catering stay.

    This is the perfect, 'get away from it all' place. It is ideal for a family or 2 couples. We have 2 boys aged 8 and 4. The living area (and bedrooms) is so spacious, it is great! It would be brilliant to get a larger group together if you had others in your party staying on Home Farm. The well maintained walk in the grounds is a lovely bonus when your time window sans rain is limited! The Cow Shed (games room) is brilliant if you have older children or teenagers - take your own table tennis balls though! The location of Home Farm is ideally located to explore Argyll, nearby it it worth a trip to Dunoon (the swimming pool is good for kids and super cheap, plus there are 2 well stocked supermarkets meaning you don't have to bring a weeks shop with you), Portatravie (for the great food and views at the marina) and for a nice walk and a pint if the pub is open (check first!) at Otter Ferry. It is quick and simple to get over to Bute (but you won't find much there unless you like to walk, but it rained heavily so that might have been why we didn't rate it TBH). We'd highly recommend the walk up Puck's Glen, it is magical! If you don't mind a bit of a drive, Loch Fyne is really nice and Inverary is nice to stop for a coffee and a browse. Don't miss Loch Fyne Oyster Bar if you are over that way! The accommodation is outstanding, the best we've ever stayed in, we've stayed twice and will probably come back again. The boys loved collecting the wood from the woodshed, they loved the idea that mum or dad could use the axe to chop kindling, and if you explore a bit, there is a swing and a small climbing structure (in the campsite bit). The old walled garden and orangerie within the grounds is worth a look, it is hard to imagine that it once formed part of an old manor house, the boys even found a den there! I could go on and on.... but I think you can see, it is brilliant!

    Absolutely fabulous house! We've visited many areas at New Year over the past 6 years and this is the best yet! Will be difficult to better. Will definitely consider returning.
