  • "Lovely, modern house with good facilities including a games room."

    Would have no reservations recommending this house to friends or family. Convenience store right next door which doubles up as a cafe/chip shop, which is always a good thing. Really can't fault it.

  • "My husband and I had a lovely relaxing stay, the property is just beautiful."

    It is most definitely a home from home experience very dog friendly. Plenty of sunshine trapped outdoor space. Would highly recommend and will be booking again.

  • "The house is a credit to the owners."

    It is spotless and the layout is ideal. Decor is lovely. The sunroom in an afternoon to read is a treat and the games room an added bonus. The enclosed garden was loved by the dog to play ball. Wanted for nothing! Ideal location to explore surrounding attractions: Culzean Castle, Burns Country and Balgary Gardens. The shop next door sells everything but you’re not far from the Asda at Girvan. Long walks on a spotless beach ideal for walking the dog. Well enjoyed and relaxing stay!

  • "99% perfect."

    Tastefully decorated in the most beautiful location. Everything and more you need from a holiday home. The coast road drive is stunning. Culzean on your doorstep a bonus. Originally from South Ayrshire we used it as a base to rediscover and a few nostalgia trips out. 1% knocked off as “ this is hopefully seen as constructive criticism”. The lounge needs a couple of table lamps as a softer alternative.

  • "Lovely spacious house in the perfect spot in Maidens, shop just 20 yards away from the front door where you can top up with supplies and eateries nearby."

    We highly recommend Wildings Hotel for some great food and for smaller equally nice lunches Ropes Bistro. The house itself was presented beautifully and really the pictures don't do it justice. We had a small issue during the week when we lost the hot water but Alan the joint owner came out promptly and resoved the issue quickly for us. Only minor moan (and it is minor) is that the parking outside the lottery can be a bit of a lottery as it is a small circular parking area which serves the shop mainly, but to be fair the owners do stress that it is first come , first served re parking right outside the house, it's busiest during the weekends Great stay and beautiful village, look forward to coning again

    It was in a very quiet village with beautiful views over to Arran. There’s lots of places to visit a short drive from Maidens, Culzean Castle, Dunure and Rabbie Burns museum, cottage and monument, we had an amazing meal in the Brig o Doon hotel Alloway, highly recommended. Enjoyed a very relaxing 6 nights in Meadowbank and would definitely recommend it.

  • "This cottage was fantastic and good value for money."

    Well equipped and comfy bed. Great location as only across the road to the beach. Handy shop next door too ! Sadly on our first day there was a power cut but we couldn’t find a torch in the property so had to sit in the dark until the electric was back on. The only other thing was because it rained a lot we had lots of wet clothing but there wasn’t a dryer or washing line to dry them on. However everything else was fabulous and we really didn’t want to go home. Probably the best cottage we have ever stayed in and would highly recommend it to others. The chocolates and wine and welcome note was a real treat Thankyou so very much. We will definitely be back. Regards Angie Kirtley and Linton Woodman.

About the location


Maybole 7 miles; Girvan 7.5 miles.

This fishing village sits at the south end of Maidenhead Bay on the Ayrshire coast and looks out to sea with views of Arran and Ailsa Craig and the distant Mull of Kintyre. It was here that Robert the Bruce is acknowledged to have come ashore when he sailed from Rathlin Island in Northern Ireland after his encounter with the spider in the early 14th century. The ancient Earls of Carrick had their seat at Turnberry Castle which today is a ruin. Today Maidens is a popular spot for visitors with its traditional harbour, extensive beach, a couple of restaurants and its close proximity to Turnberry and the spectacular Culzean Castle.

This property accepts a minimum stay of x3 nights.
