About Susan Miskelly

I am a stay-at-home mum with two young children, a dog and some ducks. My husband and I converted the hayloft of the old listed Coach House building within our grounds into self catering accommodation in 2013 and we love welcoming visitors to come and stay. Before life got busy with children (and animals) my husband and I travelled around the world, working while we travelled as qualified sailing instructors. On our return to the UK we worked in London for 12 years, eventually returning home to Scotland in 2013.

Susan Miskelly purchased this cottage in 2013

Guestbook comments from the owner

'We have wanted for nothing! The Coach House is a wonderful haven of luxury and we've had a fantastic few days' C and C, England (August, 2014)



'We had an amazing time, can't recommend you enough! Thanks for being so accommodating; loved all the little luxuries!' The L Family, Scotland (June, 2014)



'What a little gem of a place. Only sorry we couldn't stay longer. We will be back! I and J, Ireland (June, 2014)



'It was a perfect stay in a perfect house. The place is brand new, clean, with a lot of space and a lot of light. The neighborhood is lovely, very green and very quiet. Susan and her family are great hosts, they left food in the fridge for our first morning and were there if we needed anything during our stay.

We would recommend this place without hesitation to anyone.' E & J, France (May, 2014)



'Susan and the family couldn't have been better hosts. The Coach House is a wonderful property in the lovely seaside town of Helensburgh. I think we were the first guests to stay in the newly renovated Coach House and our visit couldn't have been better. We will be back to stay soon!' W & J, England (April 2014)

A wonderful holiday rental

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at the Coach House. The suite has been updated with all the modern amenities and the kitchen is very well stocked. It's easily among the nicest vacation rentals we've had. The gardens behind the house were absolutely amazing. The town is quite charming with beautiful houses and spectacular garden and everything you need is within walking distance. I highly recommend staying here for your visit to Helensburgh.

Great property,great hosts.

  • 5 of 5

The property is beautiful,decorated to a very high standard and is equipped with everything that you could need for your stay.

Susan and Fergus are very welcoming and are always on hand or contactable should you have any queries.

The location is great as a base for exploring the west coast or for a 10 minute stroll down to the waterfront or to the many nice bars and restaurants in Helensburgh.

A nice touch is the welcome pack of milk,bread butter and if you're lucky something lovely for breakfast,I'll say no more but get some bacon,sausage and beans to go with it!

I cannot recommend The Coachouse highly enough and will definitely return.
