Lovely welcome. Beautiful accomodation with everything we needed and more. It was warm, comfortable and a home from home. Excellent base to explore the area of Loch Lomond and the Trussachs National Park. We hope to go back.

"Great place to stay"
In the world of B&Bs your host can make your stay wonderful or terrible and Susan does not disappoint. She is an honest, no-frills lady that does not bother with doilies and lace to provide a modern, clean, and well equipped apartment with a garden view. The neighborhood is quiet and peaceful, with the Hill House Museum located not far away. Our 3 day stay was very pleasant.
Thank you very much Andy for your kind review. It was lovely to meet you both and I am so pleased that you enjoyed your time at the Coach House and in Helensburgh. I hope that you have a great time over the next few months during your extended stay in the UK! Kind Regards, Susan.

"A touch of luxury in a fantastic location"
The luxurious self catering accommodation had been modernised with every attention to detail and top of the range facilities while still keeping the character of the property. We were greeted by the very friendly owners who showed us where everything was and informed us they had put the heating on as the evenings were starting to cool down. Even the fridge and cupboard had been stocked with basics so there was no need to rush out to the shop for anything. There was oodles of hot water for showers and baths, an extremely comfortable super king sized bed with the most comfortable duvet I have ever experienced. There was even a selection of dvd's, books and magazines to cater for every taste and all the local information you might need. Even guide books for local walks which we took out on our trips. I cannot talk highly enough about this property and with it being only 10 minutes from the beautiful Loch Lomond it felt like heaven on earth.
Thank you very much Chris for your lovely review. I am so pleased that you both enjoyed your stay at the Coach House and I hope that we can welcome you back on a future trip! Kind Regards, Susan.

"Look no further, paradise can be found in Helensburgh"
My wife and I recently stayed 3 nights at the coach house @ the glen in Helensburgh. This self-caterered barn-conversion is a little paradise on earth. Susan and Fergus did a wonderful job of converting a old hay-loft into a modern looking appartment. Everything is brand new. New kitchen with all appliences (and more). New bathroom with an incredible shower and bath. A pretty large livingroom with seperate dining table, comfy sofa and a good tv. WiFi is free, fast and has good signal strength, in and around the house. Finally, the large bedroom with kingsize bed is also very nice!
I will most certainly recommend this accomodation to everyone who wishes a luxurious place to stay!
Thank you very much for your lovely review Freek. It was a pleasure to welcome you both to stay at the Coach House and we are delighted that you enjoyed your visit.

"Can't recommend the Coach House enough"
My husband and I took our 18 month old to stay in the Coach House and had a fantastic time. It had a real sense of luxury and Susan couldn't have been more accommodating of our needs. The grounds are lovely and gave us lots to explore, and the swings etc. were great for entertaining our little one. We would highly recommend this rental.
Thank you so much for your lovely review Lisa. It was great meeting you all and I am delighted that you enjoyed your stay with us. I hope that we can welcome you back again in the future. Kind Regards, Susan.
