About the location

New Cumnock

Ayr 20 miles; Dumfries 40 miles; Kilmarnock 20 miles.

The village of New Cumnock is steeped in history dating back to the 13th century. The famous Scottish poet Robert Burns frequently visited the nearby beautiful river valley of Glen Afton, and made the River Afton famous in the song 'Flow gently sweet Afton among thy green braes'. A memorial cairn has been created partway along the Glen by local Burns enthusiasts, and it has an attractive picnic area. Ideally situated for exploring the stunning scenery of Ayrshire and the Isle of Arran, the area boasts the stunning links courses of Royal Troon and Turnberry, both well worth a visit, as is the historic seaside resort of Ayr, which offers excellent shops, bars, restaurants and sandy beaches. Wonder at the spectacular 18th century Culzean Castle, in its picturesque cliff-top setting, or enjoy the 600 acre country park complete with deer park and swan pond. Visit Drumlanrig Castle to take in the fine art, antiques, impressive gardens and tearoom, or take a trip to Dumfries House to view the collection of Chippendale furniture or explore the grounds of the estate - you may even encounter the resident ‘smelly’ ghost! A lovely part of Scotland, with something to suit all tastes.

Lovely cosy cottage with all the comforts of home.

Mrs Layne, Conder, September 2013

The owners were very friendly and really made a huge effort to make me feel welcome and explain where everything was. I do highly recommend Mote Cottage and the excellent and friendly owners made my holiday that extra special. They certainly know how to treat holiday makers with respect and privacy. Mote Cottage is outstanding, everything I needed, like a 'home from home.' Between the owners and Sykes, everything was perfect and easy. A huge thank you to everyone involved in making my holiday an amazing one!

Mr Quinnell, King's Lynn, April 2013

The cottage was excellent and well worth the price. Loved the log burner as we had frosty mornings, it made the holiday more special. Loved feeding all the little birds in the garden. Helpful & friendly owners, I would recommend it to friends and family for a relaxing stay and value for money.

Mrs Haseldine, Leicester, October 2012

A beautiful cottage. It was equipped beyond our expectations and really helped us to enjoy our stay. Gardens and surrounding land just a pleasure to experience for the week and I'm grateful to the owners for their hospitality.
