Ormidale House is a beautiful large historic house with 13 bedrooms, eight bathrooms, three sitting rooms and a billiard room as well as a large dining hall, kitchen and breakfast room. The space and luxurious finishings mean it is ideal for a large family gathering or several families on holiday together. With the three other properties on the estate - about 100 yards away - Ormidale can actually accommodate a party of up to 75 people.
Nestling in 20 acres of grounds, laid out by renowned Victorian landscaper Thomas Mawson at the same time as Robert Lorimer designed the 19th century extension to the main house - with a river, waterfalls, lochen and beautiful woods - it is the perfect venue for a party. There is so much entertainment provided in the house and gardens that you will have plenty to keep children (and adults!) amused - large trampoline, croquet lawn, bouncy castle, and, unusually in a Scottish self-catering house, a heated indoor swimming pool. A tennis court was added in 2010.
This large self-catering house is situated just above the Kyles of Bute, in the spectacular Argyll countryside. Immediate access into the forests and onto the mountains mean this is a fabulous base for walkers. Sailing, golf, fishing, shooting, and stalking of the highest quality are all available locally and there are golf clubs and fishing rods provided. The owners are also happy to arrange other activities such as clay-pigeon shooting, archery, paint-balling or off road driving - just let them know what you would like to do and they will try to organise it for your group.
The house has everything a large group on holiday could need - log fires, lots of entertainment (both indoors and outside), a fabulous estate to explore and numerous places to see and explore nearby. If you don't want to cook on your self-catering holiday then a cook can be arranged or the award-winning chefs at An Lochan, Tighnabruich, will come and cook a celebration meal or two. This is perfect for a luxury break in a country house for a large party.
