Description

Oakbank nestles peacefully in a glorious glen close to the scenic shores of Loch Awe with the impressive Ben Cruachan as a backdrop. This charming traditional Scottish cottage has been lovingly restored and extended to provide quality self-catering accommodation. Set in the friendly hamlet of Kilchrenan by the little road that winds its way through the glen, Oakbank is surrounded by a large, delightful cottage garden that leads down through an open woodland garden to a burn (young children must be supervised).

The cottage is comfortably furnished using an appealing mix of both antique and modern pieces creating a cosy relaxed atmosphere. The spacious, beamed dining kitchen is kept warm by a wood burner and takes full advantage of the glorious views with a full length window and door that opens directly onto a terrace creating a lovely spot for alfresco dining. The multi fuel stove and generous sofas in the sitting room create the perfect setting for relaxed evenings after a busy day out and about and the traditional upright piano is sure to delight the musically minded.

The three bedrooms are well positioned up 6 steps in the extension at the rear of the house and look out over the garden to the mountains beyond. In the early mornings you may well spot deer down from the hills quietly grazing around the cottage, or experience the dawn chorus from the dozens of birds that thrive here.

    Oakbank reviews
    Picturesque location lovely & quiet good to watch the wildlife enjoyable places to visit.
    Mrs Miller - June 2018
    Stayed here before loved it .This time was even better we knew our way about cottage ,still as homely as ever weather was cold but sunny , pub was open and friendly total relax for four days apart from intense eighty minutes during Scotland's victory over England in six nations.Will be back again for sure
    Mr Carter - February 2018
    Oakbank is a lovely 3 bedroom cottage in a remote place. The cottage has everything you could wish for, the kitchen is lovely with floor to ceiling windows facing onto the garden. There are 2 garden seats out the back where whilst enjoying a coffee in the sunshine you can hear the stream that runs along the bottom of the garden, and watch the birds feeding from the feeders which was so relaxing. Apart from a halve a dozen other little cottages dotted about and a wonderful little pub which is a 5 minute walk from the cottage where I can highly recommend the food, there is nothing else. There is no mobile phone signal at all either inside or outside of the cottage, however there is internet in the sitting room only. The road up to the cottage to and from the main road is not for the faint hearted it’s single track with passing places,but the view as you drive the road is lovely. If your looking for a lovely area to just unwind, enjoy the views and relax then Oakbank is for you.
    Miss Wilson - September 2017
    On arrival the cottage exceeded our expectations. Efficient handover, and a generous welcome pack. Exceptionally well equipped. The beds, sofas and chairs are comfortable. Shower has great water pressure. Everything is sturdy, not cheap. The view through the kitchen/diner is amazing. Do buy bird feed from the local butcher, it will transform your holiday! If you want to eat out the pub has good fare, and there are two 4-5 star hotels within a couple of miles standing on the shores of a Loch. Up the road is Oban, a bustling town that has improved over the years, with many individual shops and restaurants. World class sea food available at several places. In Taynuilt there is a good butcher, post office and a general store. Nearby is Inveraw Smokery with top quality smoked fish and rarely seen foodie products. For excursions o'er the watter, ferries to Mull, Tiree, Coll and Outer Hebridies leaves from Oban. Fares are cheap compared to the English Channel and IOW services. Also possible to drive to Mallaig and take the ferry to Skye where my wife's favourite shop is in Armadale, Ragamuffin. A short way south is Inverrary with its castle, historic jail and small town. A little further is the Loch Fine Oyster Bar the original and best, still in family hands and not part of the eponymous chain. Fish dishes you do not see in the South e.g. Bradan Rost, baked smoked salmon. All in all a fabulous holiday at Oakbank
    Mr Breton - September 2017
    We were welcomed by the local housekeeper who showed us around the house explaining everything form where the extra fuel for the fires was to when the rubbish bins would be emptied. We were left a very generous welcome food box which included a loaf of fresh bread ,cheese .chocolate an a bottle of red wine. The house was spotless warm and welcoming. One bonus was the bird life at the outside feeder. we had everything from sparrows to a wood pecker and a red squirrel Great entertainment.
    Mrs Paisley - June 2017
    The cottage was perfectly situated - missed identifying the cottage while driving in the first time - having a Board will be welcome. However Jo the caretaker was there on arrival and showed us around - the facilities. Wonderful experience, well furnished and the kitchen was also spacious and well equipped. Unfortunately could not utilise the sitting out and barbecue facilities as it was winter, but surely a cottage worth coming back
    Mr Seshan - December 2016
    What a wonderful cottage! Love the mix of old and new furniture. Everything spotless and clean. Grounds and views amazing. Loved sitting by the window in the dining area watching the birds feed and the sun go down with a lovely glass of wine. Couldn't fault a thing! Thank you so much for your hospitality!!
    Mr And Mrs Howard - May 2016
    Oakbank was a great base to explore Loch Awe, Oban and Kilmartin / Lochgilpead. The cottage is well equipped and has a very spacious kitchen and a comfortable sitting room. Outside there is cycle parking in the greenhouse and you are left bird seed to feed the voracious appetites of the songbirds at Kilchrennan. We were surprised both by the generous welcome pack of food and a tour of the cottage by Jo who also kept an eye out for us during the week. Everyone we met was friendly and helpful which added to our experience including Ian at the local village stores who was a great help. In terms of places to visit then Loch Awe is fascinating and we would recommend hiring a boat and exploring the many crannogs and islands with early Christian sites. We also enjoyed days out cycling on the islands of Lismore and Kerrera as well as the fascinating Kimartin Glen and the Crinnan canal All in all a very enjoyable break we would recommend to others.
    Mrs Attwell - August 2014
