Enjoy a taste of the good life in this beautiful country house, with extensive grounds and spacious accommodation it’s perfect for a family get together.

This Georgian, listed, detached country house offers beautifully presented and spacious accommodation and benefits from a large indoor heated swimming pool, and is situated within the owners’ private estate with river and woodland walks direct from the door. Nestled in the heart of Burns’ Country, and close to the village of Alloway, the area is steeped in tradition and history. Fans of Burns will be able to visit many attractions including Burns Cottage, the Burns Memorial Museum and the Brig o’Doon – the bridge from the famous poem Tam o’Shanter.
Ayrshire is home to the Ayrshire Coastal Path, a 100-mile long coastal walk with one of the finest panoramic coastlines in the British Isles. Crowned with a superb backdrop of the ever-changing profile of the mountains of Arran across the Firth of Clyde, this coastline is teeming with wildlife, including red squirrels, deer, otters and seals. Inland, there are gardens and castles to visit and activities such as riding and racing. The many golf courses include the world famous Turnberry Course which is close at hand and also has a fantastic spa and outdoor centre. Culzean Castle (owned by the National Trust for Scotland) is spectacular and is Ayrshire’s most popular tourist attraction.
Day trips to Ireland can be taken from Cairnryan, and a short drive leads to Ayr, a traditional seaside town. Glasgow, Stirling and Edinburgh are perfect for a day out, as is Loch Lomond and The Trossachs National Park, with ferry links to the islands of Arran, Bute and Cumbrae all within easy reach. Shop, pub and restaurant 1½ miles.
