The Experience

A remote and rugged setting with much comfort indoors. Stephanie and Adrian are a creative, well-travelled pair and their house is packed with warmth and interest, including local art for sale. Be welcomed by home cooking, sink into the views from the sun lounge, sleep soundly in luxurious, very quiet bedrooms. Breakfasts with a delicious twist will set you up for a wonderful day walking in the footsteps of the first Scots through this fascinating history-steeped landscape. Explore the beach, sea loch and woods, discover ‘Britain’s most beautiful short cut by sea’ and from there sail to the Corryvreckan. You won’t have to go out again in the evening, as the house is licensed and Stephanie and Adrian’s dinners are well worth arranging too.

Absolutely wonderful stay with Stephanie and Adrian in their beautiful home. We were made so welcome, our bedroom was extremely comfortable and cosy with lovely views of the surrounding countryside. Stephanie will cook an evening meal for you if you wish and it’s an absolute treat, she’s an excellent cook! Adrian is a great host and full of useful local knowledge and history. Our stay was an absolute 10/10, we’re already planning our next visit.

Alison, Haslemere

What a Wonderful stay we have had with Stephanie and Adrian at Winterton …. The best hosts, fabulous B and B in the most gorgeous location. Absolutely delicious food as well. Thank you. We have LOVED our time there. X x We have done a lot of driving and enjoyed every mile!

Nick, Exeter

Winterton is a gem of a place. We had the Barra room, which was lovely and comfortable - great bedding, towels and bathroom products (Highland Soap Co). The breakfasts and dinners were incredible, cooked with love and care by Stephanie and served in the guest lounge/conservatory with spectacular views over Kilmartin Glen. Adrian gives excellent suggestions for exploring the local area. We enjoyed beach walks and swimming off the tidal islands, visiting Duntrune Castle gardens and watching the yachts sailing up the Crinan Canal. Still lots more to explore on our next visit - we will be back!

Julie, London

Some places just get it right! I booked Winterton because it looked our sort of place then worried how it would tie in. WELL I AM GLAD I DID! Really can't fault it: Rooms comfortable, quality breakfasts, also the one dinner that we opted to have deliciously cooked by Stephanie. Lovely quiet situation above a gorgeous beach. Adrian couldn't have been more helpful getting a map out each morning and giving great suggestions of places to go. We had not realised what a unique and historical area this 'Cradle of Scotland' is. There is a lot to see. We thoroughly recommend Winterton

Cilla, Shipbourne

A 5 Star B&B with the coziest bed rooms, towels to sink into, rooms with a view, highland surroundings full of history and hosts with a golden heart. This is the perfect place for a honeymoon. There is nothing left to wish for. Thank you Stephanie and Adrian for this magical week in Winterton ‚Castle‘.

Martina, Bavaria

Much has been written about Scotland, its history, its natural beauty… However, being immersed in it in Winterton, made alive by Stephanie and Adrian, is a different experience all together. Their love is so contagious... falling in love is the only option. Their hospitality, most delicious food and lovely original architecture creates the framework that makes this all possible.

Nistal, Nova Scotia

My husband and I stayed here for a chunk of our honeymoon, and were blown away by Winterton. The location is breathtaking (whatever the weather), with a plethora of activities on the doorstep. We stayed in the ‘Jura’ room which was light, spacious and well decorated. The view from the bathroom (which has the most delectable bath) is glorious! Stephanie and Adrian are fabulous hosts and cooks! We would highly recommend having dinner at Winterton - their passion, thoughtfulness and attention to detail is unparalleled. We cannot wait to come back!

Hannah, Malmesbury

This is a very very special place. That very unusual combination of a fabulous location minutes from a stunning beach, combined with super stylish accommodation, really excellent food and the brilliant briefing sessions with hosts Adrian and Stephanie. Their advice and tips for great walks, boat trips and cafes for lovely lunches framed our whole week. It was a very memorable trip and we will certainly be back.

Alison, Dronfield Woodhouse

This is a treat of a place! It’s just special! The ambience , the expansive views , the food , the stylish decor, art, furnishings , ultra comfortable beds and bedrooms, swanky bathrooms. Everything is thoughtfully done. Stephanie is a great cook and we ate in all 3 nights and enjoyed really delicious dinners and breakfasts. Adrian is incredibly helpful with suggestions for wonderful walks and where to go. They are great hosts. Like I say the type of place to go to “treat yourselves”!!

Fiona, Reading

Where do I start...this is an exceptional place to stay with the warmest of welcomes from Adrian and Stephanie that match the warmth and gentle ambience of the accommodation. Inside Winterton is tasteful and elegant but also provides expansive views onto beautiful Kilmartin Glen. Breakfasts are gorgeous and we chose to sample Stephanie's evening meals too - her passion for providing delicious food is clear and we were just delighted by every morsel. The massages are also excellent and work out very well after a good walk and before dinner!

Jackie, Monmouth

I had a delightful stay at Winterton. Everything has clearly been very well thought out by Stephanie and Adrian who have created a very special place to stay in Argyll.

Karen, North Connel

A perfect stay in every way. Beautiful spacious bedrooms with comfortable beds and large ensuite bathrooms. Lots of windows and light. The location was stunning - one of the prettiest places we’ve ever visited. Stephanie and Adrian offer outstanding hospitality. Their attention to details is remarkable. Breakfasts were among the best we’ve had. If you will be in the area and they have availability, thank your lucky stars and book quickly! There is so much to do in the area, and Adrian can advise you on all of it.

Carole, Atlanta

Sublime. Superb in the extreme, both the degree of professionalism combined with friendliness, efficiency, an aesthetic we loved, the situation, passion for the remarkable location in terms of history and nature, attention to every detail, excellent cuisine of the highest standard. Everything. Tips for other travellers Any advice Adrian and Stephanie offer should be listened to - thanks to their advice, we took two of the most memorable walks of our lives.

Merry, Vanzac

We were made to feel very welcome and would rate this accommodation as one of the best Sawday’s we have been to. We really do hope to return in the future. Stephanie is a brilliant cook and Adrian a wealth of knowledge about the area. All in all ‘perfect hosts’

Heather, Clitheroe

Stephanie and Adrian are excellent hosts. The five course breakfast was the best we ever had. Also the dinners were very good. It is a good base to walk from in this beautiful and quiet area. Adrian knows very well where to go and the best spots to visit in this magnificent part of Scotland. We thank Stephanie & Adrian for the good times we had at Winterton B&B.

Maarten, Best, NL

Winterton was without question the best B and B we have ever stayed in. Wonderful hosts, superb breakfasts! And the most beautiful home in breathtaking scenery. We will certainly be back!!! Thank you to Stephanie and Adrian x x

Trish, London

Thanks to Sawdays for alerting us to Winterton where we stayed last weekend. And thanks to our lovely hosts who were such great company, allowing us to completely retreat but who made us feel so looked after at the same time. We will be back soon. Thanks again x

Andrew, London

Adrian and Stephanie were the perfect hosts, they seem to be the perfect team, Stephanie cooking and Adrian advising on the area and places to visit. Stephanie cooked breakfast which was as good as the view - breathtaking, and we were also fortunate enough to enjoy two evening meals which were outstanding. The quality of our room mattress, bedding, towels, shower facilities etc were all first class and tastefully presented. We highly recommend a visit to Winterton. Better value for money would be difficult to find. We would give them a 10 out of 10!! We will definitely be back

Stuart, Munich

We had the most lovely time. We stayed for three nights and our hosts, Adrian and Stephanie were an absolute delight. Their setting is an oasis of tranquility and calm. Stunning views abound. There is lots to explore and our hosts gave us lots of ideas and local insights. Our bedroom was beautiful and tastefully laid out. The living room is cosy and welcoming. They have local art on their walls which we thought a lovely touch. The food Adrian and Stephanie prepares is truly outstanding. The breakfast was top class, and they made a lovely evening meal on our first night. We will be back!

David, Brighton

We were embraced by Stephanie's and Adrians geniality! A true hidden secret and recommendation! Plus 5 stars for the whole area and it's history, the house and rooms, Stephanie's cookeries... Everything was fantastic down to the smallest detail. We spent the most wonderful time with them and wished we could have stayed longer! Don't miss it! ;)
