Wonderful accomodation. Friendly hosts. Lots to do nearby. Ten minute ferry to Lismore island for (very nearly) zero traffic cycling with visually impaired person. Lots of super walks of all degrees of difficulty nearby. Fairy Bridge off the clansman trail from Elleric is amazing. Plenty of nice places to eat out. Wildlife galore. Perfect escape from the city.

We stayed here for a week with our 3 year old son and it was wonderful holiday. The setting is beautiful in lovely gardens which you are free to explore and well located for the many attractions of the area including Stalker Castle. The treehouse itself is perfectly designed for very comfortable living but with a rustic woodland feel to it. I loved the cosy atmosphere and appreciated the copious hot water and powerful shower. The spring water makes the best cup of tea ever! I would thoroughly recommend a holiday here.

I was surprised that it looked better inside than the photographs do credit. I loved the ravine and burn outside the windows. I saw and heard a pair of cuckoos and watched wonderful birds down on the shore a short walk away. I love the area and the views, the blue of the loch against the darkness of Castle Stalker is majestic. I highly recommend it for a welcome and real break.

We searched online for log cabins in the area, found the Tree House, fell in love immediately. Our expectations were high, but they were definitely exceeded here.

What about the comfort, the equipment and the quality of the property, the facilities and the grounds? We loved it all! The design is wonderful and the wood is used to brilliant result.

Perfect. Thank you"

An ideal base for a couple in an area great for outdoor pursuits. There is space for kids on the mezzanine floor upstairs. The property is very peaceful and relaxing, a beautifully built design which uses ecological methods and is furnished to a high standard. The deck looks out onto mature trees and has a private and peaceful feel to it. The owners were friendly and helpful and the place is run with environmentally sound principles (recycling, etc).
