Up to 11 guests are welcome to stay at the five-bedroom home that nestles in beautiful gardens and enjoys access to a tennis court, private beach and fishing along the River Auchalick.

Enter the charming country home to find a bright, enticing interior, with both period characteristics and contemporary features.

From the minute you see the house in the distance you know you are in for a great holiday . The house wraps its self around you and makes you feel as if you don't want to leave from the minute you arrive . The standard of equipment throughout the property is second to none . The outdoor space is wonderful for all age groups and four legged friends Read morewho can run around freely . The surrounding area is more than worth exploring if you can drag yourself away from the beauty on your doorstep . Hide

We loved the property. Secluded (just cows and sheep for company), lovely views, great indoor and outdoor space. The tennis court was well used as was the pool room. The weather was mixed but we managed to get to the lovely Ostel Bay on one of the sunny days. Take plenty of supplies with you as you're a long way from the nearest supermarket !

The house is very homely and enough room for a large family to hang out comfortably. Tennis court is in good condition and great games room too.

A beautiful, comfortable house in a stunning location. This was the nicest UK house we have stayed in, with a fantastic selection of games and activities. The tennis court was excellent and the Pool table and table tennis would have been great if we hadn't been so busy enjoying the countryside and coast. Great wildlife.

The perfect 'get away from it all' holiday. Loved the tennis courts and the games room which has mini table tennis, pool table and darts. This kept the teenagers happy while the conservatory was perfect for our senior citizens. I would definitely consider going back to Acharossan House.

Beautiful large house in a superb setting. Loads of things to keep the family occupied: tennis court, table tennis, large well maintained grounds and gardens. Plenty of space to chill out and rest or get more active.
