    Although the cottage/house was much larger than we needed it proved a brilliant choice as it was perfectly positioned for getting around the region. The spotless house had everything we needed and more and was probably the most comfortable we have stayed in. As I said it was larger than we really needed but all the facilities were perfect for a large family with the kids well catered for. Thank you Sykes Cottage and house owner Sarah who contacted us to check on our well-being during our stay.

The property

Ideally placed for exploring the Scottish coast and the magnificence of the Clyde Muirshiel Regional Park, 24 Burns Drive is wonderfully suited for a getaway with friends or family with the county of Inverclyde providing your scenic surroundings.

Step inside this property into the hallway leading up the staircase and make your way into the kitchen/diner on the first floor, flicking on the kettle for a warming beverage, before settling down around the breakfast table to plan for the rest of your fun-filled stay.

For more formal occasions, the dining area makes a delightful spot to sit together and enjoy a home-cooked meal, or bring a board game from home for an evening of family fun and entertainment.

If you're seeking a quiet escape for yourself, spend some time in the sun trap conservatory; a lovely area to catch up on your reading or simply soak in the pleasant surroundings.

The four bedrooms offer each guest with a delightfully snug spot to catch up with rest in between adventures, and there is ample to choose from, starting with two first-floor doubles.

Make your way up the next staircase to find two more double bedrooms, one with access to the family bathroom (which also opens into the hallway) decorated in royal hues of blue and gold, and the other with its own en-suite shower room, altogether comfortably accommodating a large family.

Also on the second floor rests the sitting room, with far-reaching views of the waterfront; a pleasant backdrop to any social occasion, as well as making a great viewing platform for stargazing at a clear night's sky.

Spend some time in your private garden, enjoying the fresh coastal breeze, before venturing into Wemyss Bay and exploring the beauty of its beach, being sure to roam Northcliff Manor for an extremely scenic experience.

With good links to the bustling city of Glasgow via train, and ferry routes to both Rothesay and the Isle of Bute, there's so much to be seen in the local area.

Make your way into the Regional Park to discover wildlife and walking routes for all abilities including the Semple Trail and the Locherwood Loop, or simply soak in your surroundings from one of the beautiful beaches of the area, making everlasting memories with your loved ones.

24 Burns Drive is a fantastic property from which to explore this exciting area of Scotland.

About the location


Skelmorlie 1.5 miles; Inverkip 1.5 miles; Largs 6 miles; Greenock 7 miles; Port Glasgow 11 miles; City of Glasgow 30 miles

A quiet, picturesque coastal village, in the county of Inverclyde in Scotland, situated on the fringes of the beautiful Clyde Muirshiel Regional Park which boasts wonderful nature trails and stunning waterfalls. Wemyss bay is a delightfully quaint village in a wonderful location. The area has been a popular tourist destination since the nineteenth century due to its rail connections to the City of Glasgow, as well as the ferry routes to Rothesay and the Isle of Bute which still run today. In terms of amenities, you will find a small selection of shops, including award winning butcher McAskies with its attached bistro and deli. For a wider range of shops and restaurants, head to the seaside town of Largs just six miles south of Wemyss Bay and enjoy a sundae at the world famous Nardini’s Ice Cream Parlour. The town of Greenock is just seven miles north, offering the Oak Mall Shopping Centre, a stunning waterfront and various amusement arcades. Slightly further afield is the town of Port Glasgow and then beyond to the magnificent City of Glasgow with astounding architecture, Cathedral, theatres and elite shopping and dining.
