"Spacious, well-equipped comfortable house in idyllic location, surrounded by glorious countryside ."
We were a party of 7 adults, including 3 visitors from Canada. The house, which is well-appointed and furnished, spacious and very comfortable, was more than we had hoped, and the location stunning, with walks from the door over hills and to secluded beaches. It was very peaceful and relaxing, with opportunities for walking, cycling, swimming, wildlife watching etc. but was not too far from excellent restaurants (one just up the road), art galleries, good craft shops etc. Jim and Pat, the owners, were friendly and welcoming and extremely helpful - their daughter,Mimi, was a bit disappointed that we had no children with us, but chatted away to us anyway! Penmore House would be paradise for children, with its outdoor play equipment, bikes, and indoor pool table, games, puzzles, large tv etc. We would happily return in future - still missing the utter silence, peace and beauty...

"A lovely place to stay"
Lovely beaches, great walks close to the house and a warm welcome awaited us at Penmore House.
Jim and Pat looked after us really well and nothing was too much trouble.
Our three kids (7, 4, 1) loved roaming around the property and the views from the hill at the back of the house were wonderful. Add in boat trips, empty beaches with white sands, Andy Murray winning Wimbledon and no mobile phone reception, and you had the perfect break. Thanks.
Many thanks for glowing review and for choosing Penmore for your holidays - re/ mobile phone reception, we are all on vodafone and find it works best on Mull and just fine at the house.

"PERFECT LOCATION AND ACCOMMODATION"
Travelled with father-in-law and spaniel, husband, daughter and her boyfriend. Something for everyone here. Bird-watcher; game-player; dog-walker (especially on Calgary beach early in the morning when we had it entirely to ourselves!), and family cooking (best kitchen ever - well stocked with all the equipment one could want; high level fridge and freezer, microwave etc. View to die for from the kitchen window!). We brought plenty of food and a meal plan (although that's probably because I like to be organised) - stop at the Tesco superstore in Oban and stock up before you cross the ferry, as food shops limited to the Co-op in Tobermory some 25 minutes by car and the well stocked village supermarket in Dervaig (10 mins in the car). We are not ones for eating out but there is a restaurant within walking distance.
Bikes were great - lots of little ups and downs locally but big hills also within easy reach if you like that sort of thing!
We took the boat trip with Turus Mara to Staffa to see Fingal's cave and the puffins. Fantastic trip. Saw seals and sea-eagles on the return journey.
Also enjoyed the short trip over to Ulva - like going back in time.
Tobermory is very pretty - we enjoyed a couple of hours there.
Jim is a superb host and even invited us to help shepherd the move of the sheep from one field to another.
many thanks for your review, we enjoyed having you stay

"Couldn't be better"
8 of us aged 6 to 51 are seasoned self caterers and like to think of ourselves as a tad picky. Penmore ticked every excellent box we could invent. The house and its setting really couldn't be… More
