Cottage
The Snug is a cosy, detached holiday cottage just a moment's stroll from the beach, and ideally situated for exploring Dunoon, the Cowal Peninsula and the beautiful mountains, lochs and villages of Argyll & Bute. We continue to follow enhanced cleaning regimes to ensure you have a safe, as well as a comfortable, stay. The Snug is next door to Coach House Cottage, both are detached cottages tucked up a quiet lane in the small village of Innellan. The cottages are ideal for quiet, relaxed 'get away from it all' breaks. With the beach at the foot of the lane and miles of secluded forest walks on your doorstep, they're the perfect base to escape the crowds and enjoy nature.

The cottages are ideal for quiet, relaxed 'get away from it all' breaks. With the beach at the foot of the lane and miles of secluded forest walks on your doorstep, they're the perfect base to escape the crowds and enjoy nature. Originally an old hay barn, The Snug now boasts a bright, open-plan living space with newly fitted kitchen and sitting area on the upper floor from which there are lovely sea views from the juliet balcony. On the ground floor is the bedroom with king-sized bed, plenty of storage and a smart TV. The bathroom is also downstairs and has a bath and over-bath shower. The parking for The Snug is in a large well-lit layby at the foot of the lane (approximately 20 metres from the cottage). There is a small shed attached to the cottage just big enough to fit a couple of bikes. The village of Innellan lies just a few miles south of the popular tourist town of Dunoon - itself just over an hour from Glasgow. There is a shop, post office, restaurant and village pub all within walking distance of the cottage. The Snug sleeps two in the double bedroom and there is also a sofa bed in the living room. Children are always welcome and we are happy to provide a travel cot, stair gate and high chair. Up to two dogs are also very welcome, but please let us know when you enquire that you would like to bring your four-legged friend along with you, thanks! The cottage is fully double-glazed, has central heating and free Wi-fi. We hope you will find everything you need in the cottage for a cosy, comfortable, enjoyable stay! *10% discount for all single travellers, please ask for a quote when booking*More

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
If you have submitted a review for a holiday rental property, we may also ask that you provide us with proof of your stay to ensure that your review is attached to the correct rental property.
Holiday rental reviews collected via the VRBO website (formerly Homeaway) and syndicated to the Tripadvisor website are not currently subject to Tripadvisor’s standard moderation processes.

About the neighbourhood
The Snug is tucked up a quiet little lane in the small village of Innellan. Innellan itself is a quiet little village with a community owned shop, post office, restaurant/bar and a lively village hall. The cottages are tucked up a small lane which is next to the sea, and there are a miles of forest walks where you can hike for hours without seeing another person! TENNIS: We're lucky enough to have a friendly tennis club only a minute's walk from The Snug! If you would like to book a tennis court whilst you're here then please let me know and I’ll be happy to arrange it for you. The cost is £3pp (donation to the club) There's SO much to see and do in Cowal! If you'd like any information at all then just let me (Katie) know x
Getting around
There's a great bus service with a bus stop only a couple of minutes walk from the cottage, at the foot of Trinity Lane. The bus runs into the town of Dunoon and to lots of beautiful local villages, and there's even a dedicated stop at the breathtaking Botanic Gardens. If you're travelling by car then there are a huge number of possibilities for days out and sightseeing - just let me (Katie) know if you'd like any suggestions.
