Customer Comments

Selected comment(s) from customers who have enjoyed staying at this property:
  1. A fantastic, relaxing week. The property exceeded our expectations and the owners Mary and John were very welcoming and helpful. March 2012.
  2. The hosts are extremely friendly and our children enjoyed helping out on the farm. The play room is a bonus for anyone with children, especially on rainy afternoons. We would recommend visiting Ayr beach, go via the coastal road for stunning views. Excellent parks at Ayr beach and Girvan, hours of fun to be had. Ruins and beach at Dunure also worth a visit and the pub in the harbour there serves good food. Also recommend Culzean Castle - house, grounds and Port Carrick fantastic. The children enjoyed trying to find the lego men hidden in each room, it kept them entertained whilst adults looked around. Aug 2011.
  3. The cottage was a lovely retreat and as a family we enjoyed it. The next time we won’t need to take so much stuff we know what is there now, washing machine to DVD’s. It is a home from home. The garden with its abundance of flowers and bird song was a lovely place to sit in the sunshine. There was farm fresh eggs to buy and they were delicious and I am forever converted. The owners were very friendly and made us feel very welcome. Fresh milk and chocolate brownies were waiting for us when we arrived. It is a working farm and daily life continues around you, but the farmer was more than willing to answer any questions we had. The children, though small still talk about the cows and chickens and pig and horses they saw. The cottage is an ideal base from, which to visit many wonderful places in Ayrshire. We loved the beach and its only 10minutes in the car. July 2011.
  4. Totally fabulous cottage where the kids could run around and play with the farm animals. Owners were just brilliant so warm and friendly, my kids said it was the best holiday ever. July 2011.
  5. You don’t need to take a single thing to this property. From DVDs and a huge range of books to thermos flasks and tinfoil, it’s all provided! Wonderful free range eggs from the chickens, a characterful pig, Shetland pony and a beautiful horse are all on hand to keep young and old happy. Guarantee you’ll want to return. April 2011.
  6. It was fantastic - play room amazing for kids, lots of space, clean, big garden, excellent! Aug 2010.
  7. Spacious, clean, quiet surroundings, everything you need for self catering supplied. Aug 2010.
  8. Plenty of room and comfortable cottage. June 2010.
  9. Very comfortable and well equipped, owners very helpful and friendly if you need anything. Outside hose available for washing muddy dogs! June 2010.
  10. Absolutely brilliant cottage. Wonderful location, fantastic hosts who made us fell very welcome. Very clean working farm with owners who care about the animals and visitors alike. Would recommend staying here to anyone. March 2010.
  11. The cottage was very well presented, with excellent facilities. A very friendly welcome awaited us and our stay was so great. Very relaxing and peaceful. Oct 2009.
  12. Lovely cottage, couldn’t find fault with any of it. Sept 2009.
  13. Beautifully furnished. Sept 2009.
  14. The cottage is set right on a working farm that has a variety of animals which our young children really enjoyed. The owners were right on hand, welcoming, very pleasant and helpful. The house has a games room which was also fantastic for the children and away from there, there is a lovely sitting room to relax in of an evening. We enjoyed our week thoroughly due to the beautiful surroundings and friendly nature of the owners. June 2009.
  15. The cottage was very comfortable, like a home away from home. Our hosts were very friendly and helpful. We enjoyed a quiet and relaxing holiday and will return. April 2009.
  16. The house is very comfortable with great attention to detail especially if you have children. The separate games room was a real benefit and the huge variety of books for adults was brilliant. Being on a working dairy farm was a great experience especially as the owners let us participate in bringing the cows in to be milked and we would definitely go back. April 2009.
  17. "The Cottage" far exceeded our expectations. Sept 2008.
  18. 10 out of 10 for a perfect family holiday. Aug 2008.
  19. Beautiful, spacious accommodation. July 2008.
  20. The property was in a superb location on a working farm, so our three year old daughter loved the animals.The cottage its self was beautiful. Aug 2008.
