We felt very at home in Michael and Dow’s house!
Lovely , spacious accommodation in a beautiful setting!
The Gables was set in a wonderful location facing the Isle of Arran and in easy waking distance to the beach at Troon.the rooms were very spacious with flexibility for 12 of us ( family and friends for a 92nd birthday celebration) to sit comfortably. The garden at the rear was very well maintained and colourful and my 92 year old mother loved sitting in the large, bright conservatory. In fact we are all our meals there instead of using the more formal dining room. Much use was made of the large sitting room at the front, people enjoying the window seat arrangement. The kitchen was extremely well equipped with an Aga & conventional oven and lots of coffee capsules available for an easy to use coffee machine.. A second kitchen meant that we were not getting in the way of each other.
Little touches such as fresh flowers and a welcome box of goodies were greatly appreciated. The only slight downside was the lack of en suite facilities and the main bathroom would benefit from updating and a more efficient shower.
Otherwise the house was supremely comfortable, very inviting and easy to live in. Thank you Michael and Dow for being such helpful, welcoming hosts.
The Gables is located about a good 3 iron and a wedge away from Royal Troon itself and within a 10 minute drive of Western Gails and Dundonald Links.
The property itself is well maintained and has a homely feel about the place, we enjoyed Mike and Dows hospitality during a recent golfing holiday (Sept 2017) and all 12 of our party were impressed by both the spacious nature of the property and its location.
I would thoroughly recommend this property.
