Had an amazing stay at Jane’s cottage! The bedroom was very comfortable, spotlessly clean plus there was a private sitting room for guests with great views. The location right on Loch Ard is pretty unbeatable! Jane was a great host, giving us tips about what to see in the area and serving a fabulous cooked breakfast! Belle the dog was super friendly too 🙂 thanks for a wonderful stay guys!

Jane was a fabulous host, the rooms were spotless and the full English breakfast delicious. She gave us some great recommendations for our days adventuring in the Trossachs. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

I spent one night at Jane & Simons beautiful B&B. It really did feel like a home from home. Beautiful peaceful location with a beach right across the road which was perfect for my dog Lola. Had a perfect nights sleep on probably one of the most comfortable beds ever! Breakfast was delicious. Lola and I will definitely be back. xx

Fabulous setting with views of the loch from the bedroom, spotlessly clean, and very comfortable bed with lovely linen and towels. Scrumptious breakfast (perfect after celebrating a friends wedding!) Jane has thought of everything-we will certainly be going back!

The location was absolutely stunning. Jane was really friendly, helpful and full of local knowledge. The breakfast was amazing too. Great value for money and we would highly recommend staying here if you wish to explore this part of the country. Thanks again Jane!
