    Fern Cottage is a lovely cosy and very well appointed property with plenty of room for a family and a pooch. Be aware however that during the winter months, many places might be closed (particularly The Ardentinny bar and restaurant, which is very close to Fern Cottage but closed from the end of November until spring the following year) Also be aware that cruises of Loch Lomond and other attractions may be operating reduced service or closed altogether. There are however some great ‘must see’ places to visit - Puck’s Glen is a stunning and ‘fairytale’ place and the Benmore Botanical Gardens can be walked around free of charge during the winter months. Likewise the Argyll Forest has numerous walks which are dog heaven (as is the Loch side) As the cottage is quite remote, make sure you bring everything you need or you will have to use the supermarkets - Morrisons and Co-Op in Dunoon which is a 50 minute return journey from Ardentinny. If you are planning to visit Glasgow whilst there, use the Dunoon to Gourock ferry to reduce your journey time and distance. We had an excellent week away and a thoroughly enjoyable holiday. Thank you very much Nick, Gillian and Millie Bardsley (and Bruce The Cocker Spaniel)

    Fantastic cottage immaculately presented. Really comfortable not at all like a holiday cottage much more like a home. Very little amenities nearby hence the score. However we knew that in advance and went well prepared. For us you holiday here for the views and the walks and the peacefulness of the location. If that is what you are looking for it is perfect. An added bonus for us was the fact it was decorated for Christmas with two gorgeous Christmas trees. The owner also phoned on day 1 to check everything was ok which was much appreciated. The only downside to the cottage was the garden is not enclosed so not really suitable for our dog.

    Lovely, warm, comfortable and well equipped cottage with walks from the door Only negative was the fence height separating the gardens from the next door cottage is very low and can easily be jumped by dogs, but even knowing that we would still book again.

    My husband and I have just returned from a weeks stay with our two dogs at the gorgeous Fern Cottage. The cottage is beautifully furnished (loved the Harris Tweed) and is super cosy and comfortable. Wonderful artwork adorns every wall - you find something new to look at every day! Location wise it's just stunning - even with the terrible rain we had all week! We saw porpoise, seals and Eider Ducks from the cottage windows, and red squirrels just up the road, by the woodland. An absolute must is to get up early and see the sunrise - it's the most spectacular I've ever seen! The cottage itself is very well equipped with lots to keep guests of all ages entertained, such as games, flat screen TV, DVD's, art materials etc. and Alexa, which was great fun and new to us! My husband was delighted to find a guitar to play - a real bonus for him as he usually gets withdrawal symptoms on holiday when he can't take his own! I love cooking, and the kitchen had pretty much everything we needed too - lots of pans & utensils etc. plus a washing machine, tumble dryer and dishwasher. The shower is delightful - rainfall style with jets and mood lighting! The heated towel rail was lovely too. We ate at the Ardentinny Bistro one evening and the food was superb - you must try the mussels! Dog friendly too. We really loved Fern Cottage, but if I were to find any fault at all, it would be the lack of secure fencing in the front and back gardens. They are NOT fully enclosed and one of our dogs escaped within minutes of our arrival. Thank goodness the road isn't overly busy! It's a shame that the dogs had to be on a lead in both gardens at all times. We would book Fern Cottage again, but a secure garden is a must for us, to give peace of mind where our dogs are concerned. To summarise, Fern Cottage is absolutely gorgeous. Warm, welcoming, comfortable and fun, set in one of the prettiest places in Scotland. (And I want Harris Tweed furnishings and that shower in my house!)

    Absolutely fabulous location for a quiet getaway; regular bus service to the local villages and Dunoon. Beautiful cottage and setting, right on the loch side with several lovely walks in the surrounding areas; owner Alistair was really helpful. Everything that we needed in the cottage was there.....American style fridge/freezer with ice maker, log burner in both sitting areas, Sun room to read or relax, walk in shower, two bedrooms with comfortable beds, enclosed garden, dog friendly with the added bonus of Alexa; what more could you ask for...we both had an amazing time!???

    It all depends what you want from your visit to this lovely cottage. It has a good kitchen with all the home comforts.The lounge is more than comfortable and cosy enough when you get the log burner going. The bathroom is well equipped with a lovely walk in shower. Whilst the bathroom is not huge its more than adequate for 4 persons to share. The bedrooms are indeed a little on the small side, but nice and comfortable. The views from the cottage, are quite stunning. Alastair actually provided some binoculars, so we kept an eye on the activities on the Loch. Wildlife in the area, we saw Red Squirrels, Deer, and Otters. We had a great holiday. My wife Angie, was amazed at the peacefulness.

    One of the most amazing cottages I have ever stayed at! Not only is the cottage itself amazing (and has everything you could possibly need) but the view outside is honestly amazing. Will definitely be returning in the future!

    Excellent cottage. Comfortable. Plenty of space. Lots of entertainment, TV, Playstation, Music etc. Nice size garden for our dog, unfortunately the weather was really cold so we couldn't enjoy the garden to sit out in. The kitchen was adequately equipped for a week on holiday. All very well appointed. The cottage is right opposite the loch with beautiful scenery to enjoy. Walks from the door - you could only enjoy it. Good pub serving excellent food within a short walk. There wasn't a shop in walking distance but that wasn't a problem for us. The area is really beautiful with many places to go and see. I would say, take coat hangers, there are none. I understand the difficulty of having wardrobes and there were hooks on the bedroom doors but a coat hanger would help. Saying this, there is plenty of drawers in the bedrooms and this would not distract from this cottage. It is a shame that you can't park outside but the small car park is just yards away. You can pull up outside to unload etc. We knew that you could not park outside and it wasn't an issue but it would be nice if you could park and see your car. Overall an excellent cottage and location, well worth a visit.
