My first trip to Newton Cottage was in Dec 2013. My friends and I booked it for my birthday for the weekend.
We arrived around 6pm. The cottage was easily accessible by car from Glasgow. There is also a bus stop right outside the cottage which is very handy for anyone who fancies to relax on the journey on the way up.
The cottage sits in a beautiful position right on Loch Fyne. We arrived in darkness so couldnt appreciate the views until next morning. The Cottage was everything we could of hoped for, it was a great space for us 4 girls. An open plan living room and kitchen with a cosy log fire and cute country style kitchen which made me feel as if I had stepped right into a Christmas movie!!
Every room has its own personality and has been perfectly put together. We started our evening getting the log fire started up and having a few wines in the crackling heat. The kitchen is well equipped and we were able to stock our weekend supplies in the fridge and cupboards. The place has a real home from home feel and we felt settled within the hour.
The cottage is a short walk from the centre of Inveraray and is a pleasant walk in the evening if you are going to the local pub (I recommend the George Hotel!!) or during the day to visit the local attractions and shops.
The highlight of my stay would of been waking up to the breath taking view of Loch Fyne in the morning. Stunning....the quaint windows of the cottage make a perfect frame to view the Loch, the hills and scenery. The cottage is also situated right next to the Loch Fyne Hotel which I also recommend for lunch and to use the leisure facilities. We spent most of our saturday in the hot tub with prosecco.
Even with the pull of the cracking nightlife in The George Hotel with its live music still nothing could beat a night crowded round the Newton Cottage North's fire sipping wine and eating good food with my friends. I can honestly say it the best weekend I have ever had. I booked for the next October as soon as I returned!!
This will definitely be a place I will return year after year. It is a gem of place and one not to be missed.
