“Excellent little cottage ...”
Reviewed 27 June 2017 for a stay in June 2017

Robert and David are brilliant hosts. Nothing is a problem to them.
Beautiful cottage in large well kept garden.
Lovely walks around and about and not far away from beaches.
Hot tub and new outside shower were brilliant.
Definitely be back for another relaxing stay.

“Lovely relaxing weekend away in Ayrshire”
Reviewed 24 April 2017 for a stay in April 2017

We came through from Edinburgh for a relaxing weekend away and to see the sites of Ayrshire. David and Robert (and wee Jasper) made us feel very welcome and provided some great tips of things to do in the area. They also provided a couple of National Trust cards which we used to get into Burns' Birthplace and Culzean Castle which was great! The place was very clean and we especially loved having a glass of bubbly in the hot tub! We definitely want to come through again at some point and would recommend this to my friends and family.

“The perfect rural country getaway”
Reviewed 24 April 2017 for a stay in April 2017

I booked the cottage as a surprise weekend away for my girlfriends birthday and I have to say it is one of the nicest trips away we have ever had. Before we arrived Robert was so helpful in making sure our stay would get off to the perfect start with recommendations on places to visit and even arranged to have a bottle of champagne ready in the fridge for us when we got there!

The cottage is cosy and well equiped with everything you would need for a short trip. The crowning glory I have to say though is the hot tub in the garden - sitting out in the middle of nowhere with a glass of bubbly and the stars above you is the perfect way to spend an evening. The kitchen is also well equiped with everything you need to make your meals and the new sofa was really comfy to rest on after a long day exploring. Although we didn't spend much time in during the day if the weather was against you there is a large flatscreen TV, DVDs and games too. There are also amenities like a washing machine etc. if you are staying for longer.

Robert and David (and Jasper the dog!) were such pleasant and gracious hosts. Although they are just next door you feel like you have the place to yourself but they are always on hand if you need anything and we really enjoyed meeting them and were made to feel right at home.

We explored Rabbie Burns cottage/museum, Culzean Castle, Ayr and Troon. I wish we had been there for longer to visit more of the surrounding area! Again Robert and David can advise on how to make the most of your stay, however long you are there for. The immediate vicinity is also perfect for short or long walks along the country roads. You would never think that the place was only 30 mins or so from Glasgow - that just means that there is no excuse not to visit the cottage with how easily accessible it is! There are plenty of places within a short drive for a nice meal or shops so it really is the best of both worlds.

I wouldn't hesitate to book coming back to stay again and we were already discussing in the car on the way back when our next visit would be!

“A peaceful break”
Reviewed 23 April 2017 for a stay in April 2017

We visited over Easter weekend, Robert showed us around and was very pleasent, we were so impressed when we got into the cottage how spotless it was and they even left us a lovely message. The hot tub was a bonus and they gave us as much privacy as possible, We went with my 8 year old son who loved it also, he really loved jasper the dog he kept talking about him lol! We hope to return soon & will recommend this cottage to others. Thanks again for all your help xx
