This luxury group accommodation with a swimming pool is set against the gorgeous natural backdrop of tree-lined wetlands of Loch Lomond, with grounds so extensive you can safely land a helicopter on them. High Wards House is simultaneously spacious and intimate, thanks to an airy open-plan kitchen/diner that opens onto an adjoining patio.

Indoor Heated swimming pool

At your luxury group accommodation in Loch Lomond, dangle your toes in the indoor heated swimming pool, or relax over a game as you take in floor-to-ceiling views of the magnificent nature reserve through the huge picture window in the living room. Just outside are the spectacular flora and fauna of the surrounding wetlands: get an eyeful of ospreys, pink-footed geese, and whooper swans with the provided telescopes and binoculars.

This is a review of High Wards I did anything else anyone wants to add?

We were a party of 20 with toddlers and teenagers. The house was beautiful. The pool and grounds kept the toddlers and younger children happily entertained. There were plenty of outdoor activities nearby for the teenagers to enjoy....and there was ample room for the adults to find a quiet room to read or relax. The kitchen was very well equipped and although we initially were surprised at the three dishwashers it really made clearing up after 20 people so much easier.

The only downside really was the wifi - I had planned to do some online courses with video streaming and the broadband speed precluded this. It also meant we were not able to stream films from our lap tops.

Emily was always helpful and unobtrusively at hand to answer any questions. We would definitely book again.

Fairoz Miller - 5th September 2016

17 of us have just returned from this beautiful holiday home. Emily the owner's attention to detail is faultless. The extras they provide go above and beyond what you would expect from a holiday rental. The facilities were fantastic and the finish to the house and grounds are outstanding. We would all return in a heartbeat..private beach, amazing picture windows, cooking/dining facilities, superb seating areas inside and out and stunning bedroom/bathrooms.

Carlamaria Jackson - 13th June 2016

Great house. Beautiful bedrooms and bathrooms. Loads of social space. Well located for walking: Conic hill and Ben Lomond. We had a family reunion and the proximity of the airport and Waitrose food deliveries made the organisation very straightforward. Highly recommended.

Tamsin Nicholds - 19th April 2016

We booked High Wards for a family holiday of 8 adults and 6 children. The property is in a superb location with terrific views and wonderful facilities for adults and children. The standard of the accomodation is 5 star. We enjoyed relaxing in great room in the evening and having pool competitions. The outside areas were excellent for the children riding their bikes and the house has its own collection of bikes and ride on toys. The tennis court and childrens play area were well used together with the wonderful indoor pool.
