    “Ideal base to explore Ayrshire and Galloway”

    This cottage is situated in lovely grounds of a castle which can be explored on foot, I would advise walking boots as the terrain can be a bit boggy near the river ...

    This cottage is situated in lovely grounds of a castle which can be explored on foot, I would advise walking boots as the terrain can be a bit boggy near the river. Cottage is adequate, but I wouldn't think four adults would be comfortable as there is only one small bathroom and the kitchen is tiny. There were no mugs that we could find, only four teacups; I do like a mug of tea! We resorted to buying some and also toothbrushes as there was no shaver socket in the bathroom and we anticipated our electric toothbrushes would run out of power. The location is tranquil and the staff that we saw around the grounds were friendly if not particularly engaging. I would recommend this cottage for couples and small families if they are happy to wait for the bathroom to become free.

The cottages are set on a 140 acre estate encompassing walks, a pond, a fountain, a river with salmon fishing rights and wonderful gardens.
