Customer Comments

Selected comment(s) from customers who have enjoyed staying at this property:
  1. This cottage is lovely and spacious. There is limited outside space but sufficient to sit out with a drink and a book. June 2012.
  2. Very comfortable and well equipped property. Good parking. Some traffic noise at times. Excellent location. Short walk to the beach. Only one and a quarter hour drive to Loch Lomond. The Whitelee Wind Farm is closer and worth a visit. Recommend The Carrick Lodge Hotel in Ayr and Elliotts in Prestwick for excellent food. We had a thoroughly enjoyable holiday. April 2012.
  3. Ideal location for beach and town. Lovely restaurant within walking distance. In the heart of historic Burns country and a stone’s throw from Burn’s birth place. Very comfortable cottage equipped very well and with the added bonus of a log fire. Perfect. April 2012.
  4. Lovely cottage, excellently placed with plenty of good restaurants in the area. We had an great holiday and would recommend Nursery Cottage to anyone. July 2011.
  5. It was so good we are already booked for next year. April 2011.
  6. This is the third visit to this cottage. Standards remain as high as the first time. Sept 2010.
  7. Very welcoming owner; very spacious property with great facilities which is in an excellent location. July 2010.
  8. Spacious, well set out. July 2010.
  9. Plenty of room. On the downside quite a shady property. Needed lights on most of the time. July 2010.
  10. The property is perfect for us in location,size,and decor but mainly because we visit our family a short distance away. April 2010.
  11. Good size for two couples with separate bathrooms plenty of space. It could do with refurbishment in some areas but an ideal property. We loved the log fire, I would go again. Out of all the cottages we have stayed at I would put this second as we do love Croscoig Cottage in Aboyne Aberdeen. March 2010.
  12. Great location, walking distance to many places of interest and good pub nearby. Lovely style of furnishing, easy on the eye. Also good to have an open fire for cold days and cosy evenings in. Like it so much we have been twice now and hope to return. The owners are very welcoming and helpful. Oct 2009.
  13. It was spacious and very well equipped, the garden faced south(ish) and got lots of sun. Aug 2009.
  14. We were more than satisfied with everything and would certainly go back to Nursery Cottage it was everything we required. Aug 2009.
  15. First class property in a top location, easy walking to beach and tourist attractions. The house was beautifully furnished and fresh flowers were on the table, first class equipment and very comfortable indeed. In all exceeded our expectations. April 2009.
  16. Cottage is in an ideal location in beautifully kept conservation village - did not want to leave! Scottish cottages are far superior to English cottages!! Sept 2007.
  17. This cottage is a gem. So spacious, well maintained and comfortable. We will be booking again in the future. Aug 2007.
