Amazing cottage in an idyllic location, every bit as good as it looks in the photographs! Everything is beautifully finished to a high specification and the range of equipment provided meant we wanted for nothing during our two week stay. We were so pleased with the large, fully enclosed garden for our dog and we all enjoyed sitting out watching the wildlife. It was the perfect location for us to relax and unwind yet within easy reach of the coast and we visited some stunning places whilst there. In conclusion, an extremely comfortable, well-equipped, well maintained holiday home which really is a credit to the Lower Lochturrfin team. Thank you for a fantastic stay and we'll see you next year!

Perfect! We have stayed in numerous holiday cottages throughout Wales and Lower Lochturffin is the best by far. The location was extremely peaceful and beautiful. The massive cottage was exceptionally clean and tidy and had everything you could think of. Wonderfully comfortable beds. The nature reserve is a real bonus, as is the fishing lake. We wouldn't hesitate recommending Lower Lochturffin to anyone wanting a peaceful getaway. We hope to return soon.

Thank you for your lovely review, we are so glad you enjoyed this very special house and would love to welcome you back in the future.

Fly Fishing on Private Lakes (with occasional visits from otters!)

  • Why not try free fly fishing on the larger lake for rainbow trout? No other kind of fishing is permitted.The fishing season is from 1 April to 31 October. A fishing licence is required and fishing is limited to 2 anglers at any one time, although it is unlikely that anyone else will be fishing. You must supply your own fly fishing equipment. Dry fly and nymph. No reservoir lures. Catch and release preferred, but you are welcome to take home one rainbow trout each per day per rod.
  • 2014 saw the arrival of otters at Lower Lochturffin - great for nature lovers, but not necessarily great for fishing! By law we are prohibited from interfering with otters, and would anyway not do so, so if it is your intention to fish during your stay, please make Quality Cottages specifically aware of this at the time of your booking so we can do our best to ensure that the lake is stocked prior to your arrival.
