I don´t want to come back- I want to stay the rest of my life...
We ( two familys including 5 children and one grandmother) had the chance to spend a week at Banlicken. It was perfect-Thank you very much!
Wonderful remote farmhouse
Loved this house. We were 2 grannys' with 9 children, aged between 16 and 18 months and 2 dogs.
Weather wasn't very good but the children didn't care as they had plenty of room to play both inside and out.
The play barn was great and the children put on a talent show. (We laughed but the judges took it very seriously)
The house and the cottage were well equipped and comfortable. We all loved the kitchen as we could all gather round the table.
Initially we were taken aback by the instructions for the water source but once the children knew where it was and what to do it wasn't so much of a chore. Although it wasn't great walking up the hill when it had been raining and the midges were out.
The midges were no problem in the house but loved to nibble at bodies playing in the garden.
The road up to the house should be treated with great care but you shouldn't let it put you off.
Peaceful,picturesque, near perfect.
The house and bothy were comfortable, beautifully furnished , with the arrangement of the accommodation ideally suited for extended family. The big kitchen diner was a great space to congregate, and was very well equipped. Loads of crockery and big pans. We really enjoyed the views over the water to Kintyre. The farm track to the property had had some work done to it, and was easily passable with a heavily loaded family hatchback. Finally, both owner and housekeeper could not have been more helpful and friendly throughout our entire dealings.
A gem of a place, isolated and a long farm track with views making it all worth while
Although remote as described, this house offered seclusion,a sense of peace and views which were quite outstanding. It offered our children and grandchildren a sense of freedom. The road has been described fully and can be a bit tricky for those not used to farm tracks. It was well maintained though and was passible by our 2 saloon cars, though there is a ford which was full flow after a stormy night. Would be impossible if two cars met! The house was one of the best stocked holiday homes I’ve been to, regarding kitchen equipment, games, dvds and videos. Reading material really interesting too. Play barn was used but we were reasonably lucky with weather so out and about a lot. After a long spell of drought water flow to tank really a trickle but luckily the rain came just at right time and with quick clean of input pipe and clearing of airlock no issues over the course of week. Full instruction were given and we were well warned that this is one of the quirks of this isolated farm house... it’s a gem of a place and we left with every intention of returning. Thank you for allowing us to share the experience of living in your home. Many lovely memories made.
Fantastic rural setting for a big family get together
We ranged from 4 to 70 years old and very much enjoyed our stay at Banlicken. The beautiful big farmhouse kitchen is the perfect place for a large group to gather round the table and the kitchen is very well equipped. We stayed during a cold spell in February but the heating was efficient enough plus the fire in the cosy living room to keep us warm. The kids had a great time all sleeping in the annex together. It is certainly remote and the track up to the house not for the faint hearted (or low slung car!) but we found it all part of the adventure! There is only one bathroom in the main house but not a major issue for relaxed holiday mornings. Book your ferry early!!
Very, comfortable and remote house for 3 families
We are three families (6 adults, 6 kids now aged 8-14) who take holidays together every other year - previously Crete, Brittany (twice) and Wales. We had a great week on Banlicken and Arran generally. Banlicken is very quiet, with lovely views across to Kintyre. The house is very comfortable. We appreciated the well-appointed kitchen (we like preparing big meals) and table we could all sit around. The bedrooms are very nice with comfortable beds. Some lovely pictures and ornaments give Banlicken a nice homely feel. The kids spent a lot of time playing table-tennis. Another loo in the main house would have been the icing on the cake!
The track is memorable and not for the faint-hearted. It fords a small river and was at the limit of our low-slung skoda - so mostly the passengers had to walk.
One of the reviews here says there isn't a restaurant nearby, but since that was written the Cafe Thyme has opened a couple of miles down the road - good food, big portions, children's playground, rabbits. Worth a visit. There are lots of nice walks for youngish children, including a particularly nice one around Lochranza (buy lunch at the Sandwich Shack). Bring your own frying pan for making bacon rolls on the beach - an adventuresome and steep walk down from the house.
Im Nordwesten von Arran auf einem Heidehügel über das Meer bis nach Kintyre blickend. Zwischen den Küstendörfern Pirnmill & Machrie mit einem Restaurant, Teestube, Golfplatz, Tennisplatz, Strände, Höhlen und Steinkreisen aus der Bronzezeit. North ist verzaubernd. Lochranya mit seinem urigen Schloss, Whiskybrennerei und malerischem Hafen, von wo Sie Seehunde & Otter aus beobachten können. Wild grast an der Küste, sowie auf dem berühmten Golfplatz. Die Waverly, der letzte Raddampfer der Clyde besucht regelmäßig de Kai. Von hier aus können Sie mit der Cloanaig Fähre Inselhopping hinüber nach Kintyre, Gigha, Islay und Jura unternehmen. Für begeisterte Wanderer und Kletterer gibt es wunderschön sanfte Küstenwege, um einen Blick auf die Schweins-, Minkwale, Delfine, Riesenhaie, Otter und Vögel zu werfen; für die energiegeladeneren Bergwanderer führen dramatische Routen mit atemberaubender Aussicht, Vögeln und wildem Tierleben durch Täler, vorbei an Wasserfällen, bergauf und zu Seen.
