Located on the extensive Fassfern Estate, this beautiful property is perfect for those who want to head off the beaten track and enjoy an outdoor, active getaway. A myriad of walks are available right from the front door, whether it's along tree-lined paths or up to the nearby hills to enjoy views over Loch Eil and the famous Ben Nevis. The village of Corpach lies 5.5 miles away and is well equipped with shops, restaurants and a pub, while just 9.5 miles away is Fort William, home to Ben Nevis, pubs that stock some of the finest Scotch whisky, and even a steam train that took Harry to Hogwarts!

Forming part of Fassfern House, this attractive cottage exudes charm throughout – the open-plan kitchen/dining room is a great central spot for everyone to gather around hearty dinners and enjoy long brunches while planning adventures for the day ahead. The cosy sitting room has a lovely open fire, making it a pleasant spot to enjoy some games or a film on a chillier evening and completing the offering downstairs is a neat cloakroom with a WC. Upstairs are two well-equipped bedrooms, one double and one twin, as well as a bathroom with bath and WC.

Outside, this cottage has its own private patio and garden area with garden furniture where a spot of al fresco dining can be enjoyed when the weather allows. Adjacent to this cottage is Fassfern House which can sleep up to ten guests and is accessed via an adjoining lockable door between the two properties, meaning both can be booked together to accommodate a larger group of guests.

We loved the beautiful surroundings of this cottage but were disappointed with its interior. Needs a makeover. Configuration of steps at top of steep staircase are dangerous especially for the elderly. We feel that we cannot stress this enough. Have to cross over these oddly arranged steps from landing to bathroom. No stand-in shower just a bath unRead moreder the slope of the ceiling and a hand held shower. Struggled. If you are prepared to put up with this then its a great base to get around from. Hide

Charming cottage, Good location for mountains and close to Fort William. Television noise from next door can be an issue.

This is the fourth time we have stayed at Fassfern Cottage and this time we brought my mother who loved the place.

Das Cottage ist sehr schn gelegen. Haus und Umgebung sind top gepflegt. Alles wichtige ist da, die Zimmer sind gemtlich eingerichtet.

Everything is important, the rooms are comfortably furnished. The upstairs bathroom is a bit narrow, but there is a second downstairs toilet. Wonderful is the fireplace with the free wood supply, which we have used much. Since the weather was very good, only deckchairs in the garden would have been missing ... The house is ideally located for exploring the walking areas around Fort William, but also close to the sea. Highly recommended and the price-performance ratio is extremely good. Hide

This is a great little cottage in a tranquil setting, perfect for getting away from it all. We particularly enjoyed having a range of walks right on our doorstop, but also being well placed for exploring the wider area, including Skye, Loch Ness and Ben Nevis. The weather wasn't always great, but having a DVD player and a log fire was great on thosRead moree wetter days and a perfect place to unwind after climbing Ben Nevis. Others have commented that the furnishings and decor are a little dated, but that to me, was part of the charm. I don't expect a rural cottage to look like a Finnieston loft apartment. That said, it could use a little TLC. The electric cooker really does need replacing. The grill is not really usable as the handle has broken. It's been fixed with some hard as nails, but that's ineffective when it gets hot, so it comes off in your hand. I would urge the owners to please replace this - it's what stopped me leaving a five star rating. We had everything else we needed, including a cafetiere, which I mention, as we lugged our own as it's not something we always get. Otherwise, this was great value for money and the housekeeper, Jenny, was very helpful both before our arrival and when we got there. Hide

Had another lovely stay at Fassfern cottage whilst busy in the area researching our move to the area. Lovely and cosy and the fire was great on a cold wet evening. On arrival discovered that there was no kettle but a quick phone call soon sorted that out so no problem.
