Barfad Holiday Cottages Tarbert Argyll
Three cottages, lovingly converted from an old stone barn, now make an ideal base for a quiet or busy holiday. The cottages are set in 100 acres of farm and woodland with 1.75 miles of its own coastline on the shores of beautiful Loch Fyne, a sea loch with beaches and grand scenery. The peace and quiet will make you forget any stresses and strains of ordinary life.
Just 2 minutes drive or 15 minutes walk through our beautiful woodlands, is the bustling fishing village of Tarbert. With shops and restaurants around the harbour and all manner of craft afloat, it makes a picturesque scene to enjoy. There are quite a few craft and souvenir shops that you can browse, some with facilities for afternoon tea.
There are also a number of restaurants, pubs and cafe's providing a wide variety of cuisine. Fish and chips and Indian food are also available to take away.
On the small hill above the village is the substantial ruin of Tarbert Castle with lovely views across the bay to Barfad Farmlands, and also across Loch Fyne and Cowal.
During the summer, the "Waverley", the world's last oceangoing paddle steamer visits the pier at Tarbert. Just along the road a ferry runs to Portavadie on the other side of Loch Fyne. There are other ferries within easy driving in the general area which can take you to the islands for a day trip.
We have outlined many things to see and do in our local area page. However, many will find the peace and quiet of Barfad enough with walks in the woods, discovering the varied wildlife including deer, buzzards butterflies and many unusual plants.
