    “The location was stunning and the apartment was comfort and clean.”

    The grounds of the Castle were beautifully maintained my only regret was that we were not staying longer. Recommended to friends already!

Culzean Castle Cottages

A collection of five spectacular National Trust for Scotland cottages, resting amidst the splendour of the Culzean Castle & Country Park, this group of historic holiday lets can be found resting on the Ayrshire coast of Scotland, on the outskirts of the charming town of Maybole. Designed by Robert Adam in the 1770s on one of Scotland’s most dramatic cliff top sites, affording panoramic views over the Firth of Clyde, these properties make a splendid choice for groups of friends or families seeking a scenic escape to Scotland. The grounds on which the properties are situated offer plenty of natural wonders well worth exploring at any time of the year, including around 600 acres of woodland and formal gardens, and three miles of varied coastline; it is a true haven for wildlife watchers. Each property offers its own unique and predominantly traditional interior with contemporary touches throughout, creating a wonderfully relaxing retreat. Spend time together exploring the Swan Pond, Adventure Playground and Deer Park, something the little ones are sure to delight at where you can adopt your very own deer, or enjoy a special moment with your partner amongst the romantic aura of the castle, with the Armoury, the Library and the famous Oval Staircase all worth seeing. The grounds also boast a farm shop and kitchen, catering to all of your culinary needs, while a wider selection of eateries can be found in the local town of Maybole, where you can take your pick from pubs, restaurants and tearooms, as well as a selection of shops for picking up any fresh ingredients. The town hosts an impressive 19th century town hall and an equally imposing castle, the perfect stop off for any history lover, while a more relaxing day can be found on the golden sands of the beach. Just a short stroll away from the properties, the beach is the perfect place to make precious memories with your loved ones or perhaps even try out a new watersport, for those feeling more adventurous. The cottages rest within easy reach of the popular coastal town of Ayr, home to a selection of shops where you can pick up the perfect souvenir or enjoy a day of retail therapy, as well as a pretty esplanade with a wonderful sandy beach, Ayr Racecourse, three golf courses and much more. The Robert Burns Birthplace Museum, also owned by the National Trust for Scotland, rests just outside the town, and is well worth visiting to learn about the life of Scotland’s national bard. Spend a day exploring the beauty of the Galloway Forest Park, or simply soak up the beauty of your surroundings from your wonderful holiday homes, the Culzean Castle Cottages.

About the property

Brewhouse Flat is a charming lower ground floor flat, resting within the spectacular National Trust for Scotland's Culzean Castle, near the quaint town of Maybole.

This former brewhouse lies in the west wing of the castle and was added to the grounds in 1780, supplying estate workers with their staple drink of beer, later changed to a wine cellar by the 3rd Marquess of Ailsa.

Take the twenty-three steps down into your home from home and discover two well presented bedrooms, presented as a double with zip/link function that can be transformed into a twin on request, and a separate twin, both offering eclectic décor, combining traditional and contemporary charm.

The bedrooms are served by the bright white bathroom, where you can freshen up before spending the rest of your evening in the living/dining room in front of the television on one of the inviting sofas.

Move through into the kitchen and delight at the range of appliances provided, with the dining table providing a lovely space to spend quality time with your loved ones over a home cooked meal.

Start your day by stepping outside and soaking up the morning sun from your very own private garden, or roam the grounds to discover 600 acres of woodlands and gardens, along with three miles of scenic coastline.

For the perfect escape to Scotland, choose Brewhouse Flat as your unique holiday base.

About the location


Ayr 5 miles.

Maybole, the ancient capital of Carrick, has a recorded history dating back to the 1100s. The high street is especially striking, with its imposing 19th Century town hall and impressive Maybole Castle, believed to date back to 1560. Once an area famous for shoe manufacturing, the village now affords a variety of shops and pubs, and a rather quirky parish church of prominent orange stone. The wonderful Ayrshire coastline is within easy reach, whilst the busy market town of Ayr, the capital of Burns Country, with its host of amenities, is just 5 miles away. Galloway Forest, a mere 10 miles away, provides excellent walking opportunities, and captivating Culzean Bay, with its grand castle and delightful gardens, is within a 12 mile drive. A wonderful, peaceful location, perfectly located for exploring the beautiful West coast of Scotland.

One storey basement flat - 23 steps down to the flat which we regret is not suitable for anyone with mobility issues.
