“Amazing as always” Back to Tobermory and Oakfield again and it was amazing as always. Lovely warm welcome from Jean and alasdair, you don't feel like you are going to a holiday rental, it's like going to visit family :)
The Cottage is so well equipped, every time I think I could just do with something, Jean has already thought of it, from shoe polish to clothes pegs, the cottage has it all. We love the bird wildlife that is attracted to the garden, many a time we are late leaving for where we need to go as we have been watching the birds or we are trying to take pictures of the Sparrow hawk that occasionally visits the garden.
It really is the perfect place to explore Mull, just a stones throw from the main street, with stunning views, its is most definitely the grandest house in Tobermory.
We would highly recommend the Sealife Surveys boat trips, knowledgeable guides and really stunning views, and definitely do the walk to the lighthouse, but be prepared for it to be muddy! Staffa is also well worth a visit.
Jean and alasdair are always on hand with local information and are always happy to help...nothing is too much trouble.
We will be back soon, once you have visited Tobermory, you wont be able to stay away!!!
“Warm, cosy, home from home cottage” Hi Petrea,
Just thought I would drop you an email to say thank you and that we
all had a lovely time at the cottage from the 13th to the 19th of May.
We did not pick the best week for weather, but the cottage turned
what could have been a disaster camping trip into a luxury holiday! I
can not express how happy we were on the rough crossing on the ferry
to Mull, knowing we had a dry, warm place to go to!
The set up meant we could enjoy our day trips knowing we had a warm
and cosy cottage to come back to and rest. The cottage was very
spacious and comfortable, with beautiful views of the harbour. I was
not expecting an old cottage to have the modern facilities that it did
- including the WIFI!!
We managed to visit Iona, Ulva and Staffa (even spotting dolphines on
the way back from Staffa!) We visited Glen Gorn Castle and walked to
the standing stones, walked on calgary beach, visited Duart Castle,
Lighthouse, Tobermoray Distillary, several artist studios (including
the one round the corner - had a good chat with the artist), and had a
game of pool and cider in the Mishnish. The fish and chip van was
yummy and I would recommend to anyone that goes to Tobermorey to visit
Cafe Fish as the seafood dishes are tasty and the bread baked fresh
(specially lunch time as the starter portions are plenty big enough,
which keeps it under a tenner!
Anyway, wanted to email to say thank you for accomodating our last
minute booking, we really feel we had a bargin! We would all
recommend your cottage to our friends and family.
