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.
