Wonderful and relaxing
Warm and friendly welcome when we arrive from Mel, Sally and all the animals :)
Everything and more for a wonderful, relaxing and peaceful holiday. The photo's do not the house or location justice.
Can't ask for more, even the weather was warm and sunny.
Totally fab holiday, looking forward to returning
Thank you for leaving The Lodge very clean and tidy after your stay, it was much appreciated. We really enjoyed your company and it was lovely to meet you all.
You were thoughtful guests, respected the farm environment with the free-ranging hens, ducks, geese and we would welcome you back at any time.

Best Holiday Cottage Ever!
We booked last minute and Mel and Sally were very accomodating. The Cottage was the best we've stayed in, in terms of equipment and facilites. Our 5 year old was obsessed with the farm animals and Mel was very kind in letting him join in the morning feeds while keeping him safe. Our boy now wants to be a farmer. The beds were comfy, we never ran out of hot water (4 adults and a child) and the wood burning stove was like a furnace! The wifi coped with all our ipads and phones.
The surrounding countryside is beautiful and peaceful. There's lots of roadside stalls with honesty boxes where you can buy preserves etc. You can buy duck and chicken eggs from the farm itself and their beef is extremely tasty too (They have a few heads of Dexter cattle).
For other things there is a well stocked local shop in Strontian which is a stroll away from the Cottage. There's also a lovely restaurant and craft shop too.
If you need to go to a supermarket he only downside is the price of the Ferry! but you can buy a book of 30 tickets for about £70 - which is well worth it (even though it doesn't seem so at the time).
The farm dogs, (Archie, Leonard and Maddie) were lovely too.
We plan to return as soon as we can.
Beautiful home at the westcoast of Scotland
We had a fantastic week at the farm lodge! The house was great and very nice decorated. The weather was good and the children loved all the animals at the farm. We explored the westcoast and the isle of Mull. Beautiful part of Scotland. My parents in law enjoyed every minute of it. Thank you very much for having us at the farm lodge. Maybe we will return some day when the kids are older.
Stayed here for four nights, Amazing place to stay. Luxurious accomodation in an idyllic setting. House has everything you need, except a washing machine. If staying for the week or with young children who possibly bed wet, a washing machine would be ideal. beds are so comfy, The lodge was spotlessly clean. Woodburning fire was fab at night lying curled up with my partner..
Scenery was amazing, as there is a fully equipped kitchen, cooking is not an issue. We ate out most nights and i can highly recommend the food at the Strontian hotel. Food was amazing, portions huge and the staff were very friendly. Village has all you need, hotel, pub, cafe shop. Hope to come back soon and have already passed details on to several friends.

Liz & John - many thanks for taking the trouble to write review following your visit.
You brought some good weather with you - come back at any time!
A washing machine and sauna facility for visitors, is planned to be installed when outbuilding renovation is completed later this year. If a family has an urgent need for washing, we have always been willing to help them with a family wash using our facilities at the farmhouse.
We are pleased you enjoyed the woodburning stove and cosy nights during your stay.
It will be good to see you again if you decide to stay at Drimnatorran Farm Lodge.
Kind regards, Sally & Melvyn
A great cottage!
We absolutely loved this newly refurbished cottage and its owners. Although the location is a bit remote and the ferry is very expensive (?7.3 per car per trip!), the scenery is beautiful around the area! The rooms are very spacious. The decoration is very tasteful and I just love every aspect of this cottage (except for no washing machine but Sally happily took our washing and even dried them for us!). Very nice and warm. We've already booked a week returning next April!
Sally did mention that they might install a washing machine, which I would look forward to when we return but wouldn't spoil our holiday!
Thank you for such a beautiful place!
Thank you for the positive comments, Toto. We are happy that you enjoyed your stay at Drimnatorran Lodge and look forward to you all returning next year.
*** Books of 30 ferry tickets can be bought for less than £60 on the ferry, which may be worth considering if using regularly during your return stay.***
Due to this being our first family visit to the highlands, i didnt know what id expect. It took us 7 hours to reach da farm and we felt in love with the owners and da house. Very clean and spacious even for our group of 8.
Da kids loved our stay der albeit main shopping had to be done in fort william.
Overall, highly recommended
Thanks for your comments.
We both enjoyed meeting your family and are pleased that you felt it was worth the trip to the Scottish Highlands.
Best wishes to you all,
Sally & Melvyn
