    This lovely holiday property forms the lower part of a converted school and offers a very good standard of accommodation for guests, with extra long beds for a comfortable nights sleep. Located in rural Ayrshire the property sits adjacent to the owner’s home and provides a superb location for the outdoor enthusiast. Dumfries House is just 10 miles away, this 18th-century stately home is set in 2000 acres, with the architecture of Robert Adam with the furniture of Thomas Chippendale. The New Cumnock Swimming Pool, 3½ miles away, is unique in Scotland, being the only heated, open-air, freshwater swimming pool. It was opened in 2017 by Prince Charles who gave his patronage to ensure that it wasn’t demolished. The Galloway Forest Park is only a 15-minute drive away and is Britain’s largest forest park with 300 square miles of wild beauty waiting to be explored. The park boasts tranquil valleys, rugged rock faces, forest, moorland, lochs and ancient woodland and a huge diversity of wildlife including red and roe deer, wild goats and many birds of prey. The park has also been awarded the status of one of only four Dark Sky Parks in the western world and when the sun sets enthusiasts come to wonder at the universe revealed above. Dalmellington is home to the Scottish Dark Observatory and is only a short drive from the property.
    The seaside towns of Ayr, Prestwick and Troon are all close by with beautiful sandy beaches and stunning views towards the Isle of Arran. Day trips can be taken to Arran and Cumbrae and are well worth the effort. Ayrshire is home to the Ayrshire Coastal Path, a 100-mile long coastal walk with one of the finest panoramic coastlines in the British Isles. Crowned with a superb backdrop of the ever-changing profile of the mountains of Arran across the Firth of Clyde, this coastline is steeped in history and teeming with wildlife, including red squirrels, deer, otters and seals and is a haven for bird watchers. Inland there are gardens and castles to visit, riding, racing and a choice of golf courses, with the world famous Turnberry close to hand. Culzean Castle (owned by the National Trust for Scotland) is spectacular and is Ayrshire’s most popular tourist attraction. Ayrshire is also known as ’Burns’ Country’, and is steeped in tradition and history. Visit Burns Cottage, The Burns Memorial Museum and the Brig o’ Doon, the bridge from the famous poem Tam o’ Shanter. Day trips to Ireland can be taken from Cairnryan. Glasgow and Edinburgh are easily reached for a day out. Beach 21 miles. Shop 3 miles, pub and restaurant 4 miles.

    Beautiful comfortable cottage. Ideal location to be able to explore the area. Beautiful views across the fields and simply stunning sunset views. Owners were on hand and attentive. Lovely welcome gift upon arrival and home made jams and freshly laid eggs. Would definately visit again when looking to visit Scotland again.

    This is a holiday apartment that is as luxurious as staying in a boutique hotel! Particularly the bedrooms and bathrooms. Good comfortable furnishings, and the owners, who are on site, alongside theirB &B were very welcoming and friendly. We had never stayed in Ayrshire before, and this was a good base, with a great drive out towards the coast. Lovely roads along the coast, and great houses and gardens to visit.
