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.

    On arriving the impression was not good. The grass approaching the gate entrance was covered in dog poo. The so-called courtyard was hardly that! The two large planters outside the door were packed with mud/ earth and the outside windows were filthy with the paint work requiring attention. Straight across from the front door and a wall was a field for pigs, as you would expect a quagmire. The pigs escaped through a rather dodgy gate on the evening before we decided to abandon our much needed holiday after only being there for two and a half days. The cottage was well enough equipped but with no landline. Mobile reception was non existent. The cottage had a very fusty/ musty smell and there were stains on the sitting room carpet. The inside windows were filthy and covered with flies and cobwebs with the paintwork requiring much needed attention as milldue was all over the windows. A good clean may have sorted this. The shower room extractor fans were completely chocked up with filth. They clearly had not been cleaned for ages. The white plastic sealant was coming away from the wall and shower tray and black milldue again was all to evident. The sash and case did not work so airing the rooms is always going to be an issue. When renting a cottage, you do not expect to be looking into a yard with a trailer packed with what looked like household scrap and quite frankly the yard was very unkept. If we wanted a holiday in the middle of a working farm I would have asked for this. This didn’t even appear to be a working farm, just an absolute mess. By the way I have never writen a review before so it saddens me feel so aggrieved to write this. On the plus side. The dogs were lovely.

    The folders in the cottage are out of date, especially regarding the refuse uplift

    It's a beautiful remote area. Cottage was comfortable and well equipped. We enjoyed the daily company and visit of the spaniels, chickens and geese . One of the spaniels always came for a walk with our dog to the beach which has superb views. Nice to get away with no phone signal and just the occasional wifi. Good cottage for exploring and walking area.

    My wife and I have stayed at on the Ardlamont Estate before and enjoyed coming back, we stayed at a different property this time as more of the family were with us and we needed more space. There also appears to be some renovation work elsewhere on the estate going on but this didn't affect our stay in any way. Beavers Cottage was well appointed and had everything we needed for a pleasant and restful holiday. The decor and furniture is full of character with lot's of antique furniture and wall decorations which we enjoyed. The private beach area is just as we remembered it, and we'd definitely recommend a visit to the Spa at Portavadie as well as the fantastic walks around the area.

    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.
