Stay in the bustling coastal village of Brodick and discover the best of the Isle of Arran's attractions. Cosy and compact semi detached cottage perfectly set out to host two guests for a week or long weekend.

This picture-perfect semi detached cottage is in a joyful location, less than 500 metres from the sandy beachfront. Wander half a mile into the centre of Brodick for a host of things to do, including a luxury spa and a golf club. The village boasts plenty of quality restaurants, waterfront pubs and bars and charming tea rooms, as well as convenience stores for stocking up and cooking at home. Visit the 19th-century Brodick Castle and its beautiful gardens just 1.5 miles away or head up the road for a local heritage museum. Those looking for more of an adventure, hike Goatfell, 4.5 miles away, or travel 8 miles across the island to see the Machrie Standing Stones.

Enter the property via the patio to the rear and head straight into the open-plan living space. This homely lounge has been decorated to a high standard, and every inch of the space is utilised well. The compact kitchen is fully equipped with fridge/freezer, electric oven, gas hob, microwave and washing machine. Find a starter pack of local treats in the cupboards and dine at the handy breakfast bar for two. Come the evening, sink into the comfy sofa and choose from plenty of options on the TV. The Smart TV has a built-in DVD player along with streaming services to peruse. Just off the lounge is a cosy twin bedroom with far-reaching sea views through the large window, a treat to wake up to each day. The property's bathroom is an en-suite and fitted with a WC and shower cubicle.

To the front of the cottage, you'll find a spacious mature garden, full of pleasing flora and a great spot to sit and enjoy a good book. A gravelled driveway just before this offers space to park one or two cars. To the rear, accessible via French doors in the lounge, a sun trap enclosed patio has an outdoor dining set, ideal for entertaining friends and dining alfresco.

The cottage is small but big enough for two people. The decoration is bright and modern but also homely. Very comfy beds and the view from the bedroom is stunning, as is the view from the rear patio . Everything you need for a great stay. Great hosts, Anne and John were there if we needed help with anything and just lovely people.

If you're looking for five star accommodation for two, then look no further than St. Minver, but book quickly, accommodation as good as this is snapped up fast. Furnishings & equipment were of the highest standard. Our 2nd visit to St. Minver, even better than the last. Ann & John are excellent hosts.

The sea view from the large bedroom window is mesmerizing & you find yourself ship spotting whenever you pass it. The furnishings & all equipment, (even the cutlery), are just right. Although St.Minver is an annex of Anne & John's main property, there was never a time where we felt that it was intrusive during our stay. In fact they are perfect host's & will offer any help with information regarding the surrounding area, local cafe's, & restaurant's if you want it. We had some great meals in Crofters in Brodick, (make sure you book) & they do a great steak night. You will not regret staying at St Minver. Hide
