Amidst a stunning secluded location with a 1½ mile private beach, this really is the perfect place for a relaxing holiday or family celebrations and is just 4 miles from the nearest villages. Nestling in 460 acres of unspoilt natural woodland, Ardlamont Estate is ideal for large parties and weddings. It is located in an area of stunning natural beauty with hills, glens, rugged coastlines, white beaches, clear waters and ancient forests. Argyll’s Secret Coast is packed with places to visit and things to do; sailors, walkers, cyclists and artists are all drawn to this area for its beauty. Abundant wildlife can be spotted such as deer, buzzards, otters, golden eagles, red squirrels and if you’re very lucky, basking sharks. The whole area is steeped in Highland history and dotted with ruins, castles and ancient sites. The town of Dunoon is within easy reach and has a good selection of shops, pubs and restaurants. Take a steamer cruise and explore the hills and lochs of the Cowal Peninsula. Loch Lomond National Park is just a short drive away and is ideal for walkers and cyclists of all abilities, and boasts a magnificent diversity of scenery with dramatic peaks, waterfalls and hidden caves. Portavadie with its plush marina and restaurant is approximately 5 minutes’ drive away, or you can catch the ferry over to Tarbert to explore the Kintyre Peninsula with ferries to the islands of Islay, Jura and Arran. The historic Ardlamont House is a classical example of a Scottish country house, dating back to at least 1646 when it became the ancestral home of the Lamonts, one of Scotland’s oldest clans. Sumptuous public rooms with blazing open fires, and elegant four-postered bedrooms makes this ideal to enjoy the fabulous surroundings. Beaters Cottage is stone-built with many original features. Beach 500 yards. Shop, pub and restaurant 2 miles.

    We had the most incredible and soul-enriching break. We were welcomed and would highly recommend The Beaters Cottage to anyone seeking a breakaway holiday surrounded by a serene and insanely stunning environment. The cottage is fully equipped and feels utterly warming especially with the playful springer spaniels. Barra is such a lovely dog!

    Excellent holiday. Beaters Cottage is a super base and the owners are fantastic. Would highly recommend to anyone who enjoys beautiful walks and beaches. Very relaxing and thoroughly enjoyed feeding the pigs and piglets. Farm dogs are a joy and joined us for many walks in the private beach. Many thanks again to Bren and Nikki.

    The location was a bit more remote than we expected but this did not detract from the experience. Plenty to keep everyone interested.

    Perfect get away. Peace and quiet away from it all. The owners went above and beyond to accommodate us and provide a setting for us to make memories and new experiences. For a family ranging from 5 to 88 years old it was perfect. Helped by the glorious sunshine we are having. The village shops about 4 miles away catered for our needs.

    In quite a remote area so be carful if using a Satnav there's a few little roads and its easy to take the wrong one. The cottage is comfortable but there is a lot of clutter. No mobile phone/internet reception but we liked that. The road to the private beach can be very muddy if its been raining. Lots of farm and wildlife about.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the owner; Firstly, there is Wi-Fi in the Beaters. We cannot comment on unavailability of mobile phone coverage as it is not within our control. Guests are advised to ignore sat-nav guidance on reaching Kames Post Office. We, like everywhere else in Scotland, have been at the mercy of exceptional rain fall recently , therefore muddy conditions almost everywhere in rural locations. What is described as clutter by these particular guests, is generally perceived by others as quirky and homely and well equipped.
