“Brilliant.”

Reviewed 30 Apr 2015

60th birthday celebration, great location and house, area spectacular as always. Weather was a bit iffy but For November on the West Coast we were lucky.

Good to hear the weather didn't spoil your celebration. The wood burning stove and the central heating would ensure you were cosy and comfortable in the farmhouse.

“The perfect farmhouse”

Reviewed 5 Jul 2014

Our group of 6, my family of four (with kids 10 and 8), and my two parents (75 y.o.), had a memorable and amazing stay at The Seabank Farmhouse! We only stayed for three nights, and wished we could have stayed longer. The accommodations were cozy, clean, spacious and just beautiful! Sandy, the owner, was such a sweet lady, and she welcomed us with her delicious home baked scones and fresh cut hydrangeas. When the wi-fi needed to be reset, she took care of it immediately. The property is huge - we saw deer in the backyard, and we walked to the end of the road to do some fishing. The farmhouse is situated in Benderloch, and is just a short drive to Oban. It is a nice and remote place with gorgeous views of the water, and everything you need to just stay put is available. We hope to come back very soon. It was one of our favorite places to stay on our trip to Scotland!

“Really nice”

Reviewed 26 Feb 2014

The house is really nice, you have everything you need and the surroundings are just beautiful. We weren't lucky with the weather (this is Scotland!) but we had time to go for a walk to a beach nearby, and I would really recommend that. The house is really clean and the beds are very comfortable. We loved spending time by the fireplace!!

Thanks for your lovely comments. Tralee Beach is nearby and it is a popular walk with my guests. Everyone loves the cosy wood burning stove in the winter evenings. Hope to see you again at the Farmhouse. Regards Sandy
