  • “We booked to attend a wedding and then explore the area.”

    The property was good value by the description but exceeded expectations- larger and more comfortable than expected, and with fabulous views. ...

    The property was good value by the description but exceeded expectations- larger and more comfortable than expected, and with fabulous views. The hosts were fantastic and made great recommendations, and there is more than enough to do in the area- Dumfries house as a start. Even with poor weather we had a great time- the property is very homely and easy to chill in especially with great log burner. With X2 Tesco near by, self catering is easy and the kitchen is functional and Local butchers at Garson are friendly and sell great produce. Lucky to have one great sunset, and we would absolutely stay again- really enjoyed the property and chats with Jason.

The property

Positioned near the quiet village of Mauchline, set amidst rolling countryside and beautiful Ayrshire scenery is Darnhay Milk House, newly-renovated by the owner in December 2018.

This converted barn offers a well-presented interior with a high vaulted ceiling and uplifting décor, ideal for a family of four or a group of friends.

The bright and airy spaces, combined with modern fittings add to the comfort of your stay. Snuggle up by the wood burner on a cold night and unwind in front of the TV with your loved ones, or play a game at the coffee table over drinks after dinner.

Velux windows overhead allow the natural light to stream through and the dimmed lights create a soothing ambience of an evening. Cook up a delicious meal in the well-appointed kitchen and gather together around the dining table after an adventurous day exploring the local area.

When the night draws in, you have two lovely bedrooms to choose from; the super king-size double offers zip/link beds and an en-suite, whilst the twin is ideal for kids and is served by the family bathroom.

Outside you have a private patio, perfect for balmy evenings watching the sun setting beyond a patchwork of fields and enjoying long-distance views over to the Isle of Arran.

Just over two miles away are the nearest amenities in the village of Mauchline, with shops, pubs, cafes, art gallery and the Burns House Museum.

The award winning SORN INN is also 3 miles away.

Ayrshire is one the best golf destinations in the world with nearly 50 courses to choose from including 5 of the UK's top 100 courses and 3 open championship venues close by. The seaside resort of Ayr boasts plenty more shops along with sandy beaches.

Prince Charles' philanthropic Dumfries House and estate, with its unrivalled collection of priceless Chippendale furniture, is just 8 miles away.

A little further away is the jewel in the crown Culzean Castles, a favourite day-trip destination of many Darnhay guests.

Cross by car ferry from Ardrossan Harbour to Brodick on the Isle of Arran and discover Brodick Castle, hiking on Goat Fell, and the Arran whiskey distillery along with scenery-filled walks along the Arran Coastal Way.

You also have access to the cities of Glasgow (45 mins by car) and beautiful Edinburgh (under 2 hours by car) with its Old and New Towns. A well-deserved break in Scotland.

About the location


Ayr 12 miles.

The lovely village of Mauchline quietly nestles amidst glorious hills and farmland and is ideally situated for exploring the magnificent scenery of Ayrshire and the Isle of Arran. The village is well-known as the home of Robert Burns, who lived and farmed in the area with his wife Jean Armour for many years. The house they shared is now a museum and forms part of the Burns Trail. The Royal Troon and Turnberry links courses are both nearby, whilst the historic seaside resort of Ayr is just 12 miles away, offering excellent shopping, bars, restaurants and sandy beaches. Visit Dumfries House at nearby Cumnock with its unrivalled collection of Chippendale furniture, or take a trip to Culzean Castle with its picturesque cliff-top setting and enjoy the 600 acre country park complete with deer park, swan pond, adventure playground and delightful beaches. A truly charming part of Scotland with something for all tastes.
