    A nice well equipped place, with a good welcome package. Only faults are a slowish wi-fi, and poorish description of location of turn off from A7 for access.

    Wonderful cottage, beautifully presented. Spotlessly clean and extremely comfortable, every effort had been made to make our stay five star. Big thank you to the owner Sheila who told us a lot about her beautiful farm and let our kids to feed her calves.

    I stayed at the Byre in October 2018 with my 11 year old daughter. The cottage was gorgeous, with a beautiful view of Aisla Isle and Arran on a clear day. Sheila was extremely welcoming and helpful! Ballantrae has everything we needed - a pub where we had a lovely meal, a well stocked store, garden centre and of course, the stunning coast!

    Recently stopped at the Byre and must say what a fantastic property. To clarify these are detached properties essentially, the interconnecting door is outside. The property is set in an ideal location overlooking ballantrae about a mile away and although is on farm land we were not disturbed by any going on from the farm. The owner Sheila was on hand to answer any queries and made life easier for us by supplying a high chair and travel cot. we were even given a tour of the farm which made our holiday as our little boy adores animals. The property itself is spotlessly clean and has been finished to a high standard with all the essentials you would expect and more. I would have no hesitations about booking again and fully expect to return in the near future

    Fantastic..will be back.



    out of 10

    Had been a little concerned to read previous reviews saying cottage looked ‘tired’ and that surroundings were ‘barren’. How pleasant therefore to arrive and find that neither were representative of what we found. Cottage far from tired, but clean, spacious homely and cosy, with beautiful interior decor. As for barren – yes, there were weeds in the field beyond the outside seating area – but it was just that – a field on a working farm. The views of Ailsa Craig and scenery on approaching and leaving the cottage are stunning. Would highly recommend a stay at The Byre where you are guaranteed a warm welcome by the family.



    out of 10

    Wow what a fantastic family holiday we had at this beautiful farm, the accommodation was lovely and modern and the location spectacular, our children loved feeding the calves on the farm and was made to feel very welcome, we went on quite a few day trips and spent time on different beautiful beaches, but we would have still found lots to see and do nearby if we had stayed local, our only disappointment was that we didn’t book for longer. we would definitely recommend to other families.
