Lovely, well equipped cottage in the centre of Mull. Ian and Jan are smashing hosts who couldn’t do enough for us. On arrival the Wi-fi wasn’t working, so immediately Ian was up a ladder sorting the problem. Within a couple of hours all was sorted (and kids were relieved!) the wildlife on the island is amazing, and Ian knows where to see it all! The Observatory was a regular haunt, in fact on some days it was difficult to get my wife out of there! No hesitation in recommending Clover to anyone. Perfect!

Great central location for access to all areas of Mull. Very warm welcome from the lovely owners. Amazing observatory and laboratory facilities... ideal for a rainy afternoon’s activities. Great walking routes from Salen, ten minutes away, and the hotel at Craignure highly recommended.

Clover cottage provided a great base for walking on Mull. The location is convenient for the ferry terminals and the setting, between the hills and a loch, is beautiful. The cottage accommodated our party of six adults comfortably. It was clean, bright and sufficiently well equipped for us to self cater some of the time. We also enjoyed great meals at the Hebridean Lodge and Cafe Fish in Tobermory (a 25 minute drive away). The owners are friendly and helpful. We'd have no hesitation in recommending Clover Cottage as a place to stay on Mull.
By SusanD stayed in June 2019
Lovely, well-equipped cottage, perfectly placed for travelling around the island. We wouldn't hesitate in recommending this place and its excellent facilities. Ian gave us lots of tips as to where may be best for wildlife spotting, and spectacular views - if only the weather had been as kind!! Oh, and we got married during our stay so it was extra special!!
By The Cloes stayed in March 2019
Warm, spacious, well equipped, very comfortable bed upstairs,. The location was excellent, half a mile away from our ferry landing at Fishnish. The shoreline was just across the road. Ian and Jan who are the owners, live next door. They were friendly very accommodating, couldn’t have asked for more. Clover Cottage is definitely a must for me, it is so well appointed. Even though it is by the roadside, you don’t hear any traffic noise. This is probably the best self catering place I’ve stopped at. Don’t think I’d look anywhere else now. Thanks again Jan and Ian. Hope Casper is doing ok.

Stayed here for a week first time on the Isle of Mull, what a beautiful island matched by the very comfortable well situated clean cottage ran by exceptional hosts Ian and Jan we will definitely be back and would recommend anyone coming to Mull to use these facilities.
By Susan and Tom stayed in November 2018
An excellent location to explore the island, with the added benefit of the additional facilities on site. We were met by Ian who showed us around and was extremely helpful.
By Chris Jeal stayed in September 2018
We returned to Clover Cottage because it is spacious (easily big enough for our three generations) and reasonably priced.There were excellent views from all the bedroom windows.Ian and Jan were so friendly and helpful even giving us produce from their garden.Ian allowed the twins to help him feed the owls which made their week.The location is superb and the proximity of the swimming pool was fortuitous as the weather was not brilliant.The craft room was an extra bonus and we would highly recommend the accommodation.
By Sue,Brian,Naomi,Michael and twins stayed in August 2018
lovely cottage which was very comfortable and well appointed . The location is excellent for visiting the rest of the island and the proximity to the shoreline was a real plus. The craft room, observatory, pond dipping and play house were excellent for children . Thoroughly enjoyed our week and would highly recommend.
By Anya and Andy stayed in August 2018
We had a fantastic week at Clover Cottage. Ian and Jan were very welcoming and gave us lots of helpful advice about how to make the most of our stay on Mull. The cottage was beautifully appointed, a lovely spacious open plan living area, with a well equipped kitchen. It is well situated by the road from Craignure to Tobermory, giving excellent access to all areas of the island - making it a great base to explore this beautiful island.
By Andrew Appleton stayed in July 2018
Delightful owners Jan & Ian made us very welcome and gave us lots of tips so we got the very best out of our week. Great cottage with everything we needed; an ideally located base from which to explore Mull or just chill out. Ballygown restaurant a must, booking essential. The puffins were very special as were Calgary and Laggan beaches. Lots more to come back to another time.
By Jools, Lily, Lisa, Jo and Clare stayed in July 2018
Thank you Jan & Ian for making us so welcome. Another lovely 2 weeks stay.. Lovely hosts lovely cottage lovely location. Abundance of wildlife. Have already booked for next year!! Thank you once again.
By maureen ken&claire stayed in May 2018
We enjoyed a super week at Clover Cottage. Accommodation was very comfortable, one of the best self catering we have stayed in. One of the very few pet free properties on Mull - glad we found it. Superb position, we all enjoyed the observatory and easy access to the shoreline. Daughter enjoyed the craft room.
By The Barber stayed in May 2018
Wonderful location, lovely accommodation that supplied everything that was needed to make the weeks holiday perfect. Ian and Jan were extremely helpful and pleasant hosts. My wife and myself would not hesitate to recommend Clover Cottage as a wonderful base to explore beautiful Mull.
By Victor Hill stayed in March 2018
Lovely stay at clover cottage, clean, cosy and well epuiped. Geoff was there to greet us when we arrived and made us feel very welcome. Having views of white tailed eagles from the cottage was an added bonus! We would definitely stay here again ????
By Jean & Terry Jarvis stayed in October 2017
A wonderful week, excellent weather which enabled us to explore the island by cycling from the property. Clover cottage is extremely comfortable, warm and well equipped. The observatory adds an unusual dimension and the local wildlife was exciting to see.
The property is very conveniently sited for the excellent Spar shop in Salem and the Glenforsa Hitel offered wonderful bar meals while enjoying stunning views. I highly recommend this Cottage.
By Sylvia Jones stayed in September 2017
Excellent stay with my parents, fantastic views, fantastic weather, fantastic hosts. Geoff is dedicated to wildlife and he is a credit to this beautiful isle of mull
By Peter foster stayed in July 2017
A wonderful stay. The cottage is fantastic with such good resources. It is such a welcoming space for everyone. We loved the observatory and Geoff's knowledge about wildlife and the area. This is one very speical cottage to stay in, in a beautiful place. I would highly recomend it.
By sonia mainstone-cotton stayed in July 2017
Quite simply one of the best s/c cottages we have ever stayed in. Clearly a great deal of thought, effort and passion has been put in to the whole establishment; from the accommodation, the craft room and the observation room overlooking Fishnish Bay. It is well located to explore the majority of Mull and despite being adjacent to the main A-road that links Craignure with Salen, it is generally quiet with no meaningful disturbance by passing traffic. As a family with two children under 10, it is an excellent location to stay and even if it is a rainy day, there is plenty to do on site given the craft room, which is well stocked with materials and suggestions for creations. It also houses several microscopes for the budding or more experienced naturalist.
All in all, a wonderful place to stay; and judging from others comments left in the visitors book at the cottage, folk return again and again.
By Richard Wilson stayed in July 2017
Very easy to find with the directions given in the arrival information e-mail. Geoff was there when we arrived to go through the cottage, the craft room and observatory. The owls in the sanctuary where an added bones thou Geoff did mention he was looking at relocating the snowy owl to another sanctuary where he can be with a mate. The location, thou close to the only 2 lane Road on the island was fantastic as we spent most of our time in the living room watching the goings on with the wildlife in and around the garden. Fishnish bay was a minutes walk and we were lucky enough to see Sea Eagles and Sea Otters there. The proximity to the road, although at times noisy did allow us to get out and about to see all of the Island with ease. Geoff and Gilmira were excellent hosts and always willing to offer advice of things to do and places to see. Hopefully we will return one day to Mull and if we do then we'll look to book the same cottage. Superb visit ????
By Paul Harris stayed in June 2017
Our 4th visit! Can't stay away!! Lovely cottage lovely location lovely hosts. A wild life haven .White tailed eagles a fantastic treat each year & never disappoint. Already booked for next year. Our lttle bit of paradise!!
By maureen ken claire & pauline stayed in May 2017
Excellent cottage and excellent hosts, Geoff always there and willing to share his knowledge of the wildlife and nature around Mull.
By peter thompson stayed in March 2017
This is our second stay here. We have stayed in both cottages now.
I visit with my Father and son (13). We like the location. We travel all over the island on our visits and find it perfectly placed.
The craft room and observatory are really good and we spend quite a bit of time there. My son loves seeing the owls too.
The cottages are very very clean which is always appreciated.
By Rebecca Julian-Dixon stayed in February 2017
My wife and I had a wonderful stay in Clover Cottage. The additional facilities of the observatory and laboratory were great, especially in the evenings when we would sit and watch the webcams to see what was going on out in the wild.
Geoff's local knowledge was invaluable and he pointed us in the direction of some top wildlife spots and places to go for walks.
Coming from a city, the noise from the road was very quiet by comparison.
Would thoroughly recommend booking Clover Cottage and plan to return one day.
By Duncan stayed in August 2016
The cottage is lovely, well equipped, quality fixtures and fittings, bright and warm. Geoff was really helpful and keen for his guests to have a good time. We didn't use the lab or the observatory as we were out and about all the time but they were very interesting and a real labour of love I think. The only negative is the location of the cottage next to the busy road. All three bedrooms are next to the roadside and the traffic noise woke us up early each morning and one night kept us awake until very late. No-one else has mentioned it so it's obviously not a problem for them but for us it was. I hadn't picked from the website that it was next to the road so it's probably my fault and I wouldn't have booked it if I had known. But, it is a lovely cottage so if that's not a problem for you then go for it.
By Eileen Young stayed in June 2016
Editor's Note: The description mentions the road, and the location page shows exactly where the cottage is too.
Our 5th stay in Clover cottage., which says it all. It is so clean. Geoff and Gulmera so kind and helpful, the accommodation is first class and so comfortable.
As regards the road noise, we never hear it at all, you get used to it.
We just love going to the cottage and will certainly be back. Thank you Geoff and Gulmira.
By Penny and Andrew Helliwell stayed in June 2016
Our second stay at Corry Meadows. Wonderful place, fantastic facilities, great base for island exploration. Children aged 2, 4 and 9 love it. Highly recommended.
By Jen Royds stayed in April 2016
Enjoyed our stay, great location, Geoff and Gulmira were very good hosts providing information when requested but otherwise letting us enjoy our holiday. The Lab and Observatory were really good, we used them most days. Lovely week on Mull, our 3rd visit to the island and would recommend this cottage to all readers of this review. A couple of small points for Geoff/ Gulmira to consider: the downstairs fire alarm is too close to the cooker and always alarms when cooking. The upstairs bathroom would definitely benefit from the addition of a shower over bath. Otherwise a lovely cottage.
By David Canavan stayed in March 2016
Editor's Note: Thank you David, we will pass those comments on.
Fabulous cottage, great location, fantastic hosts. Booked for 2016 on our return home.
By Tom & Debbie stayed in September 2015
Geoff, Gulmira and Henry were great hosts. They were always available for help and advice. When we had a problem with the toilet Geoff sorted it out quickly. The observatory and lab/craft room were a great touch and Geoffs advice about wildlife was very welcome. We will certainly be back, in fact the children just want to move in!
By Fiona Turnbull stayed in August 2015
We were made very welcome. The cottage was spotlessly clean and the observatory was a real bonus. In the absence of otters across the road Geoff told us exactly where to find them and we were successful! We enjoyed a lovely week on a beautiful island.
By Susan Akhurst stayed in July 2015
The owners Geoff and Gulmira couldn't have been more welcoming and helpful. As well as an excellent cottage they have provided an "observatory" for viewing the wildlife and also a lab with microscopes and a craft area for children. This all takes it one step up from the usual holiday cottage.
By Lynn and Kevin Baxter stayed in June 2015
We had a great stay, the observatory was excellent. Geoff was very helpful with tips for wildlife spotting and info in general. A great island to visit. We will certainly be back again.
By Peter Jones stayed in June 2015
Our second time on Mull but our first stay at Clover Cottage. The property is great for someone with mobility problems and we were able to get the car close to the house too. We were comfortable and warm during a rather wet and cool week and we enjoyed the facilities for watching wildlife. A great place for families especially.
By Janet Wallace & Denise Tunstall stayed in May 2015
Our 4th time now in Clover Cottage, we just live staying there. The views are wonderful. Walking along the shore there is nothing better. The accommodation is excellent, very well equipped and as always spotlessly clean. Gulmira and Geoff are fantastic hosts, nothing is too much trouble for them and they may you feel very welcome.
Geoff is very knowledgeable about wild life which is right up Andrew's street and the craft room is superb. We will definitely be booking again, maybe in January, we love being there in all weathers and possibly for 2 weeks next June.
By Penny& Andrew Helliwell and Andy Ashworth stayed in April 2015
This was our third time in Clover cottage. We just love the accommodation, so comfortable, very well equipped with everything we needed. Geoff and Gulmira make us feel very welcome, nothing is too much trouble, they are lovely people. The observatory is a superb place to try to view birds etc through the binoculars or the telescope.
The craft room is great when the weather is too bad. We took our nephew in October when there was a storm so we went in and made him a mirror and decorated it with shells, brilliant room.
We are booked to go again in April and can't wait we just love the whole atmosphere of Clover cottage and Corry Meadows.
By Penny and Andrew Helliwell stayed in January 2015
We had a fantastic time on our short break at Clover Cottage. The cottage was excellent and the added bonuses of a pond, observatory and lab were brilliant. We had two grandparents, and our two children with us, there was something for everyone to do. The only fault was that we didn't stay long enough! We will definitely be back.
By Fiona Jupp stayed in October 2014
We loved every part of the stay, the accomodation was excellent and we were made to feel very welcome. There was so much to do at "base" and the surrounding area. The cottage was excellently equipped, there was nothing more we could have asked for. Kids, parents and grandparents all loved it!
By Clare Attrill stayed in August 2014
Excellent accomodation. Close to the water and local wildlife. Made to feel very welcome by the owners. The children enjoyed playing outside (pond dipping was a favourite). Even on a couple of rainy days we were fully occupied with the 'Art Room' and the 'Observatory'. A real home from home. Will definitely go back in the future.
By James & Rosemary Bradley stayed in August 2014
Clover cottage was an excellent accomadation, beautifully maintained and in an ideal location, Geoff was an excellent host with a wealth of information regarding the island. We can't than him enough and will definately be returning to Mull and especially clover cottage.
By Alan masters stayed in May 2014
This was our second visit to Clover Cottage. It is a lovely friendly place and maintained to the highest standards. The owners are on hand to help with information and everything you could possibly want is provided in the Cottage. Would highly recommend a visit.
By Dorothy Finlay stayed in April 2014
Just fantastic! Welcoming hosts, nothing was too much trouble. My son, a keen bird watcher spent many hours in the observatory . I sadly had to study whilst I was there but at least I was in a lovely home from home with lots of natural light, knowing that my familiy were having a great time.
Loved it .
