About the location


Ayr 15 miles; Glasgow 38 miles; Dumfries 43 miles.

The East Ayrshire town of Cumnock, sometimes called Old Cumnock, has many historical roots. With settlements here since the Bronze Age, the many memorials to its involvement with the Covenanters and also the claim that William Wallace resided nearby, there is much of historic interest in Cumnock. The Burgh of Cumnock was created by royal charter in 1509 by King James IV and the connection with the Dumfries family continues to this day with Dumfries House and Estate just outside the town. The house itself was built in the 1750s by John and Robert Adam and contains original furniture by Thomas Chippendale. Cumnock today has a wide range of shops and facilities and boasts its own Highland Games and Music Festival. With the coast at Ayr, many Robert Burns connections, and the world-renowned links courses of Troon and Turnberry within easy reach, Cumnock is a great base for exploring this beautiful and varied part of Scotland.

This was our first holiday with Sykes, and everything was excellent. The service, the cottage and the amenities were first class. Definitely on our list from now on.

Mrs Sarvent, Chesterfield, February 2014

The house was a home. It was not just somewhere to sleep at night. It felt comfortable and welcoming. Everything was good quality.

Mr Goble, Milton Keynes, October 2013

The property was exceptionally well kitted out with everything that you could possible need. A real home-from-home.

Mr Morton, Lytham St. Annes, September 2013

Thistle cottage was excellent, very well presented and clean with all the facilities you need on holiday plus extras! I would definitely give it a 5 star rating. Staying in such a lovely property helps create a great holiday. There was loads to do in the surrounding area and lots of information on local interests were available in the property.
