The cottage was excellent and the owner very helpful but un- intrusive.
All of the furniture and fittings were quality, spotlessly clean and worked as intended.
The cottage is 50 yards from the river, with a footpath leading both. up and down stream.
My wife, I and our Grandson would certainly recommend this cottage

A wonderful cottage in an exceptional location. Well off the main roads this is a quiet spot in which to stay. Excellent facilities in a very well maintained cottage. A private garden. Close to the River ayr path. Good jumping off point for all things ayr. And if you're into Burns this is the right place to be.
Superb holiday cottage, high standard and hosts very welcoming.

This cottage holiday could suit everyone. A romantic break in the countryside for young or old. Beautifully equipped with lots of homely touches. Very clean and up to date - recycling encouraged, didn't seem to lack anything. Access to 40 miles of riverside walks - fishing can be arranged through the owner. The enclosed garden has seating area and lovely views. My teenagers loved the countryside and it's not far from the coastal town of ayr. There are good tourist attractions nearby, Castles, beaches, islands and the town itself has all the amenities you would want. A car is essential as the cottage is situated in a rural area a short drive from town. We all loved it so much and will return in the future. This was affordable luxury and a real treat. Once again can't thank the owner's enough for all the small touches that made this so special.

The Barn far exceeded our expectations. 5 star finish & fittings. Very clean, comfortable & peaceful. A lovely welcome from the owner & then left alone but there if we had needed them, which we didn't. The welcome tray was a lovely touch and a nice surprise. Location was excellent, very tranquil but not far from all required amenities. We only stayed a few days and have family living close by which was the reason for our visit but if we had been on holiday and doing the tourist thing then the Barn would be a delight to come home to at the end of the day. We have no problem recommending the Barn to friends and family & no doubt we will use it again in the future.
