Description

Set in a truly spectacular position overlooking the beautiful shores of Loch Fyne, Castleton House is full of period charm with rich oak panelling, magnificent painted ceilings, gilded cornices and impressive fire places. With beautifully proportioned rooms, this welcoming Scottish mansion house offers substantial living space making it a wonderful holiday destination for large families, groups of friends or special occasions.

Castleton House is comfortably furnished giving a relaxed, homely atmosphere which will allow you to quickly wind down to a gentle pace of life. The grand drawing room with its magnificent ceiling, large sofas and open fire is sure to create the backdrop to many happy evenings and the morning room is ideal for those wishing to play games or watch television. Light floods in from the fully glazed wall to the large open plan kitchen/breakfast room and the dining room has been cleverly set up for flexible dining with 3 tables allowing all 16 guests to gather for memorable dinners.

The impressive heavy oak front door opens into a circular turret with a sweeping staircase up to a thrilling galleried landing. Through the main hall a second staircase, lit by a stain-glassed cupola, leads to the spacious bedrooms, several of which enjoy fabulous views across the loch.

The house is surrounded by glorious mature gardens with paths leading to ponds and through ancient woodland up to beautiful viewpoints. A short stroll will take you down to a private bay where hours of family fun can be spent enjoying the shoreline and at low tide it is possible to cross the causeway to the estate’s 23 acre private island Eilean Mor where untouched natural beauty thrives.

Loch Fyne and the surrounding area of Argyll is an ideal holiday location, renowned for its beautiful rugged coastline, tremendous hills, mountains and loch scenery as well as its historic sites, friendly people and lots of exciting activities to make your visit a memorable one.

    Castleton House reviews
    We had a very enjoyable holiday in the spacious property. Particularly good was the log fire, sauna and plunge pool. However there is an air of pleasant faded elegance to the house which presumably is being slowly refurbished. Unfortunately we had some problems with the carriage house which appeared not to be in use much as it was cold and the heating went off after 3 days. The fact that its heating was connected to the plunge pool was not explained and resulted in the plunge pool reaching Mediterranean temperatures before we realised the connection. The literature in the house was rather out of date while the 2 slice toaster in the kitchen was rather inadequate for 11 eating breakfast together.
    Dr Holt - September 2016
    Lovely house and the grounds and enjoyed the area with lots of history and good walks - especially the walk above Crinan with views out over the whole of the Inner Hebrides. Liked the pub at Kilmartin and the Stonefied Castle hotel for dinner. Could do with some attention to detail e.g. on maintaining the snooker cues. The bed in the master bedroom was rather small.
    Mr Watt - August 2016
    We chose this property because it had a children's play area but it turned out to be a dangerous health risk, inside the house we had to clean the dining room on arrival the open fires turned out to be labelled do not use apart from one which hadn't been cleaned either. When I came out of the sauna 2 boards fell off and hit me on the head the same happened to one of our party when he came out of the snooker room overall it was a major disappointment. I hope someone pays attention to this review although I doubt it
    Owners Response: "Response from Cottages & Castles: Thank you for your review and without them improvements cannot be made. We do always reply and / or pass on to the owner for a reponse which we have done on this occasion. Response from owner: The problem with back to back bookings is that I am reliant on the local cleaners who are pressed to get the house pristine between one group leaving and the next group arriving. Clearly there were some problems with the fire place and dining room so I will mention this to them. The only open fire that works well is in the lounge. All the other chimneys have been capped to keep birds and bats out of the house and keep it draft free. We could not anticipates boards falling - we apologise for this and the problems have now been rectified. We were unable to edit the list in which Play Area was mentioned and have now asked C&C to remove it since it should never have been there. Thank you for alerting us to these various issues.'"
    Mr Brown - August 2016
    we all loved this big house. very comfortable and beautiful. perhaps the kitchen could do with a little update but that is not a problem. sauna and plunge pool very popular with most of us. grounds very special. we stayed for christmas week 2015 and bought all our meat and fish from lochgilphead fergusons butchers and the fish seller where exellant. lots of interesting walks in the area, we would love to go back. many thanks to the owners !!
    Mrs Savage - December 2015
    What a wonderful house with such stunning views. Kitchen and dining room big enough for all to share meals - warming log fire in the comfortable lounge (all logs provided too). We had a really great family holiday - lots of room for everyone, our three year old couldn't believe the space he had to explore. All ages loved the gardens and the walks to the loch and surrounding area. We enjoyed watching the seals swimming - three of our younger generation joined them on Christmas day (not for long!). Would definitely like to book the house again in the future.
    Mrs Smithson - December 2014
    A lovely traditional large house with some spectacular views from every window. The majority of the house is decorated in a tasteful style that compliments the era of the house. The Drawing Room is stunning with its beautifully painted ceiling and is inviting with its fire place.
