Absolutely fantastic. Rooms are all generously proportioned and very tastefully furnished. Kitchen especially well equiped with large range cooker and American style fridge freezer. We had a food order delivered - there was enough fridge and cupboard space to store food for 6 people for 8 days! Plenty of bathrooms - 2 upstairs and 1 downstairs. Laundry room excellent for storing muddy boots and drying wet clothes. We were also really impressed with the ease of access to Stirling/Edinburgh/Glsgow and the great range of things to do locally with the kids for FREE - great walks and cycle paths in the nearby National Parks and we made full use of the pool and health club at nearby Drymen which is included in the price.

Wonderful accommodation, excellent facilities, great for families or couples ,my partner & I booked the Bothy but due to the roof being repaired Mabeth upgraded us to Apple House & all I can say is the pictures don't do this cottage justice. The cottage has views across fields, a large garden with table & chairs to sit & enjoy the calmness of the area. Plenty of parking. The village of Drymen is a short drive away with plenty of places to eat, convenience stores, butcher & post office. Will definitely return & I will be recommending it to my friends.

De ce séjour d\'une semaine avec nos 3 enfants, chacun en garde d\'excellents souvenirs. Cette maison est très agréable à vivre et particulièrement bien équipée. Sa situation est également un atout, elle est au calme, la vue est superbe sur la campagne. Proche de Loch Lomond, on se rend facilement à Stirling ou Glasgow... L\'accès à la piscine est appréciée après une journée de balade.

Nous recommandons vivement !

We have stayed at Apple House for 3 years, and I think it gets better and better.Everything about is perfect.There is everything you could possible want in the cottage and more.It is very clean on arrival and there are lovely touches like a bottle of wine,sweets and this year a punnet of local strawberries.It is very quiet and super views.Close to shops and Restaurants.

Beautiful cottage with stunning views, nice area, stunning bedrooms with the most comfy beds and bedding! enjoyed our stay. dishwasher did not work, but to be fair we didn't realise this until the last day so I am sure if we had realised earlier something would have been done about it. Didn't find the gas bill too bad, £28 for the week and we had it on regularly. All in all would go back if we were up that way again.

The facilities at Apple House were exceptionally good, and the attitude towards saving the planet were in place but not obtrusive. The welcome we received for a 2 night stay could not be bettered, and we all wished we had longer time available. We would recommend this house and its owners to everyone planning to spend time in the area.The facilities were modern and everything one could wish for to make a holiday accommodation more like home.

un très joli logement, très agréable, cosy et parfaitement équipé jusque dans les moindres détails. De plus, il est très bien situé pour visiter les incontournables de l'Ecosse. Une des meilleures locations que nous ayons trouvées depuis plus de 20 ans que nous voyageons en Ecosse. Il est également très agréable de profiter du spa et de la salle de fitness du village voisin gratuitement.
