Located right next to beach and the coast trail. David and Dianne are quite helpful and go out of their way to make the trip/stay successful. David is without doubt an excellent cook. We had breakfast, dinner, take-out lunches -- all fine. Cottage pie dinner and dessert of cranachan yummy. Really nice room. Relaxing atmosphere.

Having just spent three nights over the New Year period in beautiful Sannox, my husband and I would wholeheartedly echo all the most positive comments made by previous visitors to Darven Cottage. The location is perfect; a stones throw from the beach with stunning views from the main bedroom and gorgeous lounge, over the ever changing light and moods in...

This was my second time to Darven Cottage, but the first for my husband. He was not disappointed! I had told him so much about it and the visit lived up to his expectations....except sadly the WA state flag was not flying due to storms the previous week. David was a great host with 3 course gourmet meals produced both...

I have just returned from a week at Darven Cottage. Welcoming, warm and wonderful Darven. What an idyllic location. Simply walk down the garden and you are on the shores on Sannox Bay. Stunning scenery and utterly restful. Our host was so helpful in suggesting the best places on the island to take our dogs, and where we would get...

We spent a very pleasant overnight stop here. The bedroom and bathroom were clean, nicely decorated and comfortable. We spent some time in the lovely sitting room, chatting with David and looking out of the picture windows at the wildlife and the sea. David was welcoming and knowledgeable. Breakfast was superb, and the dog was lovely

Just returned from a magical visit to Darven Cottage.Setting is second to none, right on Sannox beach! We had a really warm welcome and our room was lovely.

Popped over to Arran on the weekend. Had not long arrived from Australia to enjoy a few weeks of Scottish winter. I love Scottish winters. There's something about the driving wind and rain battering violently against the side of the house that I find strangely relaxing, especially staying in Darven Cottage! Unfortunately, the weather was quite mild and mellow, but...

I went to Edinburgh for school last year and getting to visit Arran was the highlight of that experience. Me and a few friends stayed at David´s place for a weekend and it was brilliant.
