“Fantastic cottage &”
Reviewed 12 March 2016 for a stay in March 2016

Would certainly recommend Teal Cottage. The cottage was immaculate & decorated to very high standard. It met all our requirements & exceeded our expectations. The location was very scenic. Would definitely return. Amazing value for money.

“Good base for exploring the Cowal peninsula.”
Reviewed 7 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

We stayed at Teal Cottage from Friday to Monday. It is usually a Saturday to Saturday rental but we contacted the owner Andrew who was very prompt in replying and very helpful in agreeing to the rental.
Teal Cottage sits alongside the owners other property, Shelduck Cottage, in their own ground. Only a single track road separates the property from Loch Riddon.
The cottage is very well finished and appointed with both bedrooms having en-suite bathrooms. There is also a shower/toilet off the utility room. The kitchen/dining, living room is open plan and sits at the front giving lovely views of the loch and hills. There is also a ramp giving access through the utility room.
Both Andrew and Sheila were very welcoming and friendly and were keen to check everything was ok.
While there are no shops or pubs in the close vicinity it is well placed to base yourself with Tighnabruich being just a short drive away.
When we arrived there were two red squirrels feeding in the back garden which returned every day. We also saw an Osprey flying down the loch and deer nearby, so it's great for those with an interest in wildlife.
Overall if you are happy staying somewhere slightly remoter, it is well worth trying.

“Very Impressed!”
Reviewed 14 September 2014 for a stay in May 2014

My husband and my aunt and uncle and our Beagle dog 'Boo' stayed at Teal Cottage May- June 2014 for a few nights.
This is a beautiful, well presented, clean, comfortable, cosy (very warm) cottage.
The views are really lovely. It has a relaxing feel about it.
It was well laid out, fab style to it and stocked everything we needed.
I was particularly impressed with the bedding! VERY very comfortable bed and the bedding was fantastic quality .....I had to replace all our pillows and duvet at home when I got back!!
The owners were friendly and easy to communicate with before and during our stay.
The area around is one of our favourites....there is so much to see & do. We recommend PUCKS GLEN (fantastic walk....enchanting) and a trip to Portevadie and watching the sun set on the edge of the loch eating oysters at the Oyster Catcher in Otter Ferry. Stunning!

We are definately considering staying again when we return to Scotland next September!

“Teal Cottage Getaway”
Reviewed 17 July 2014 for a stay in July 2014

My husband & I booked Teal Cottage for 4 nights in July at fairly short notice & we were delighted with our stay.

The cottage is lovely - comfortable & clean & in a gorgeous peaceful setting. We were treated to daily wildlife spectacles, including the red squirrels sneaking into the bird box in the back garden! Andrew & Sheila, the owners of Teal & the neighbouring Shelduck cottage, were warm & friendly & made us feel really at home.

My parents & grandparents stayed at Teal just after us & also had a wonderful time. We look forward to coming back soon!
