    Even with high winds and horizontal rain there was enough for a couple to do although I think children of any age may be stretched in finding the right thing to engage their imagination. Bird and animal life was on the door step and we spent much time sitting in leather seatees watching activities in the garden.

    What a great cottage, fantastic location, super clean and very well equipped. The welcome pack was a lovely surprise and a great welcome. The cottage is homely and super cosy, especially with the log fire! Cannot recommend this cottage highly enough!

    Owner introduced himself and was on hand for any queries. Plenty firewood for log burner. Nice welcome pack. Lovely views from large windows. We thought that a handrail in the shower over the bath would have been a good idea.

    The Cart Shed is a modern yet characterful place to stay to explore Ayrshire and beyond - but you'll hardly want to tear yourself away! It's a stunning converted stable block which is homely, spotlessly clean and has everything you need. We were greeted by a wonderful and unexpected welcome pack including fizz in the fridge, butter, bread, milk, orange juice, bacon, Scottish biscuits and eggs from the owners' hens. The living area has a log burner, comfy sofas and a large TV and there are TVs in both bedrooms too. And the jacuzzi bath is a lovely addition to the main bathroom to make your stay even more relaxing. The grounds and garden were kept beautifully and we loved watching a wonderful collection of garden birds visiting the feeders. These included great spotted woodpeckers, nuthatches and blue tits. This property is a fabulous find and deserves five stars all the way!

    Lovely cottage, clean and well kept. A little overlooked, no full length mirror and no wardrobes, just a couple of small hanging rails. A bit over priced but a light packing family would love it.

    Excellent base for visiting friends and family. We were not expecting such a great welcome pack! Best welcome pack by far. The place was clean and most things we required were there. we did not expect the wildlife in the garden on the first morning. We thought the owners were slowly releasing the animals/birds for us to enjoy. First we heard the woodpecker and then the lovely birds on the bird feeder, then a squirrel and then the hens came round and then there were ducks. (they seem to love the feeders). I didn't realise how peaceful it was watching birds in the garden. It was lovely the daffodils were out in the garden. The kids enjoyed playing with their dogs. Our dog loved watching out of the windows. despite the 8 hour journey time I usually don't sleep well anywhere for the first few nights. But we all slept amazingly well. The cart shed has been thought out really well with solar powered and spring water. The kids tried out the jacuzzi bath a few times loved it!!! Alex was very helpful in suggesting places for dogs and kids to visit. Dumfries grounds, Culzean country park, Ayr beach. All great!!!
