Eight of us and one dog had a brilliant holiday in Drumalban. It's position, views, layout and interior with artwork, books and games all helped to make the week we spent there perfect.
The grown-ups relaxed, the children explored and the dog was happy.
Ardfern is a great village with a well stocked shop an easy walk down along the track, a cafe and pub. We were lucky to be there the weekend of the Pirate Parade and producers market.
On our more active days we visited Kilmartin Glen, explored the peninsular down to Danna Island and went pony trekking.
We were made to feel very welcome and would love to return soon.
We stayed at Drumalban in July 2017 for a week and had a really fabulous time. The cottage is spacious and clean and very child friendly. Stocked with plenty of games/toys and books for when the weather is not the best. In addition the use of amazon prime was a real treat! The kitchen and utility room were fully stocked with every utensil possible and all bedrooms were light and airy with black out blinds on most windows which was a real help with little ones who like an early rise! I would definitely recommend this cottage for families wanting a relaxing break away with the most stunning views I have ever seen!
This is our third stay at Drumalban and we love it. It is very well equipped and spacious and suits our family of 8 adults and 2 babies very well.
I'm getting married close to Ardfern in June and as it's a part of the world I truly love, decided to go for a long weekend with a group of friends a month before the wedding. We were incredibly fortunate to have beautiful weather for the entire stay which made the breathtaking view from the house and garden even more fabulous.
The accommodation is spotless and full of wonderful collections of books, records and fascinating artefacts. While we spent most of our days sitting out taking in the scenery, the house was fantastic to come into in the evening and enjoy the fire while sitting with a drink.
Diane was great to communicate with, she couldn't have been more helpful, and dropped in to make sure everything was ok with her lovely dog, which we all agreed was the one thing we were missing from the weekend.
Having enquired about a caterer for one of the evenings Diane gave us a couple of personal recommendations. We chose Janine who was really lovely and cooked the most wonderful food, which really showcased how delicious vegan food can be - we were a group with a wide variety of eating habits including some pretty carnivorous people and everyone loved the meal.
Drumalban is a wonderful secret which I'm almost loath to write a review of lest the message spread too far. Such a lovely time, hoping to come back for my 30th later in the year. Thanks again!
