The drive into Ormidale House takes in some breath taking country side. Once you're at the estate itself you find a real jewel in the crown of the Scottish countryside. Amazing facilities and beautiful grounds. Would suggest to anyone!
Fifteen of our family stayed at Ormidale House between 20-23 April this year. there are four properties within this estate to rent. We rented the Mill House which has been beautifully converted.. The Mill House sleeps far more than the 15 that we were, we had more than enough personal space for ourselves and some extra freedom too. The Mill House has been thoughtfully renovated with luxury in mind, the main room is lovely and has everything that a large party needs. The bedrooms ( i have seen that other people have said that they are a bit small), we loved their quirkiness, if you want hotel rooms...then stay at a hotel? this is a beautifully converted Mill House, simple as that.
Our family aged between 10-90 years old stayed and we all loved it here, it had a little something special and oldie worldly for all of us, there was of course the pool for the kids, beautiful small walks for the oldies, just enough time for a small sherry, but for the more adventurous of us we had a discovery of a climb/walk behind the Mill through aged forestry that was amazing, the kids were fascinated by the 4ft tall ants nests that we found and the natural beauty, freshness of the wild trees. The children aged 10-15 years made a bridge from stones and discarded bits of wood across the beautiful water fall that travelled pass the Mill....no X Box needed everyone....just a little imagination.
The house is positioned so very well for access to Loch Fyne and a few adventures to other beautiful places. we went for our father in laws 90th Birthday and we all had a lovely, relaxing time....For those that were lucky our favorites was the Owls at night...we loved to hear them in the quiet of the night.
This secluded historic house was perfect for our wedding . The grounds are beautiful, the house itself just wonderful.Our guests were accommodated in the main house and loved their bedrooms which were large and very comfortable. Our family stayed in the mill house ,which is modern and open plan on the ground floor with cosy and comfortable bedrooms upstairs .
There was plenty of room for every one .
The owner was hugely helpful and a pleasure to deal with .Thank you John for answering all of our questions and being so obliging .Our caterers were Marc and David from Allonuscatering.They and their team were top class .Their food was fabulous and they could not have been more helpful.
All in all an unforgettable stay in a truly magical setting.
We had a wonderful week at Ormidale last summer - 28 of us including three octogenarians. The house is magnificent - the dining room and music rooms are fabulous - the billiard room was in near constant use and the bedrooms were grand. There was no shortage of things to do with beautiful scenery, beaches nearby, a hot tub and an indoor pool - I hope we'll come back one day - many thanks
A wonderful place to holiday with kids. There was so much to do on site! Games in the house, a jumping castle and a trampoline, walking through the woods - within the estate! - Plus soft play in the leisure centre in the town nearby (Dunoon?), and archery for the bigger kids. There was plenty to do, and I would have loved to explore the nearby beaches. Beautiful scenery too. Really enjoyed.
