Enjoyable relaxing break
Woodland Villa is large,clean & with all the modern amenities, loads of parking space and most of all its very peaceful and the owners who live in the next cottage are a lovely couple. Bedrooms have loads of wardrobe space extra blankets if needed and there are enough bathrooms to accommodate a large family. Good Wi-Fi and whopping 55 inch smart TV for those nights that you may stay in It?s about a 15 minute walk into Oban with its several bars and restaurants, also a large Tesco for any supplies you may need. Its uphill back if you?ve got the stamina, however, if not a cab from the town centre will set you back ?4. Oban is also a good touring base, Inveraray, Fort William and Glencoe are just an hour?s drive away and the ferries sail from Oban to most of the Inner Hebrides, we enjoyed our stay, despite the rain. Would definitely recommend.

Peaceful location
This property is a great base for exploring the wonderful west coast and nearby islands, standing at the top of the hill, McCaigs Tower a short walk away. The house is spacious and was spotlessly clean, light and airy. The only things that let this property down are the kitchen utensils, only one decent saucepan, the others either didn't have lids or were very worn. Not enough mugs and plates that looked old and crazed. One of the dining chairs was very worn and a cushion in the lounge had a large tear in it. Spending a few pounds on some decent kitchen equipment and mending/replacing some of the furniture would make this property outstanding. All this said, we thoroughly enjoyed our holiday at the Woodland Villa and wouldn't hesitate in recommending it.

A lovely home within walking distance of Oban and surrounded by stunning countryside. We will definitely be going back.


This property was just perfect - it was exactly what we were looking for, and in a great location. The log fire in the living room added to the experience. The showers were also amazing, as were the warm beds. Thanks!

Cracking House to rent in Oban
Stayed here over Xmas with friends there were 6 of us in total. Great kitchen well fitted out so we were able to cook Xmas dinner easily , nice dining area, big lounge and conservatory. There are 3 generous bedrooms 1 ensuite with a separate bathroom upstairs and a shower room downstairs....pleasingly the house is very warm throughout. It is about a 10 minute walk downhill into Oban town centre....and there is the distillery , bars and restaurants there ....I can recommend Norries Chip Shop....fantastic ! I would suggest getting a cab back late at night as it is dark and uphill....but only about ?4 to ?5 in a cab.
