"We just spent half a week in Pirnmill Cottage over half term and this [very] recently renovated cottage is spectacular in so many ways. For starters the rooms: the cottage has two large rooms. The upstairs room is extremely large yet very warm and cozy. It is perfectly appointed for up to 3 kids, where they have three very comfy beds, a sofa, puffs, games and a tv. The upstairs is connected by a spiral staircase from the living area and it is just absolutely perfect for kids looking for a super cool place to call their own. Our 6 year old was ecstatic! The master bedroom is also very spacious, extremely comfortable and clean/new bedding, and connected to the large master bathroom with a jumbo-sized claw footed bath tub and corner shower. With all the new fixtures and abundant toiletries, it just felt luxurious.
The kitchen is very well appointed, all brand new appliances and uniquely, many cleaning supplies available. The cooking equipment, again, all new and plentiful, including plenty of coffee pods for the coffee maker. The living area was also well thought out and we arrived to find fruit and welcome hamper on the dining table. As it was Halloween, our son was also delighted to find a carving pumpkin with a personalised note on it. All these special touches made the cottage a spectacular place to stay - we only wish we would’ve booked for much longer.
If the cottage was perfect, than the farm can only be described as idyllic. It is a working farm with award winning highland cows and several sheep. These animals are friendly and we opted to take a farm tour, which brought us very up close to a gorgeous bull called Curly. We were at first intimidated but soon we were happily brushing his long fur and hanging out with a few 7 month old “babies”. Again, all very personalised, with delightful touches like a special ATV and tractor ride for our son.
The surrounding areas include Inveraray jail and castle, salmon fisheries (were you can take fly fishing lessons), walks along Loch Awe and nearby Oban for amazing seafood, etc. Etc. The area merits at a minimum an entire week for exploration.
Overall five stars and a massive THANK YOU for Pirnmill cottage at the VisitCladich farm!!"
