Property code: CA013

This neat cottage with views over open fields sleeps up to five, making it a great choice for families or groups wanting to explore the rugged Isle of Arran.

Located just 9 miles from the ferry terminal at Brodick, the house is perfectly placed for those who want to roam the island. It's set in a small residential cul-de-sac with some beautiful forest and moorland walks on the doorstep. It's 3 miles from the coast and 5 miles from Machrie Moor Standing Stones, one of the island's top attractions. Shiskine Golf & Tennis Club, a popular 12-hole links golf course, is also 3 miles from the house and has a well-regarded clubhouse on-site too. Head to King's Cave car park, 3 miles away, for a nice circular walk to see the historic caves, or start at Blackwaterfoot, 3 miles, and walk along to Drumadoon Point for a coastal stroll.

The single-storey house has a user-friendly layout, with a modern interior that feels like a home-from-home. The kitchen has an electric oven, microwave, and a dishwasher to make those clean-ups less hassle. The island breakfast bar with stools is great for chatting to the chef or enjoying a lazy morning coffee with the papers, and the living/dining next door has a table for six when everyone wants to sit down together. Gather everyone after dinner for a cosy movie night, with ample room for everyone on the two comfortable sofas and an electric fire for those chilly evenings, or delve into the collection of board games to get the competitive spirit going. Those who enjoy a good soak will love the bathroom with an oversized tub, and the welcoming bedrooms each have an individual style. With a double that has an en-suite shower room with a WC, a twin and a single, there should be a configuration that suits most parties.

Outside, the enclosed garden wraps right around the house, perfect for dogs to explore safely, with seating on two sides and a gravel driveway with room for two cars.

 

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

Immaculately clean and comfortable, the cottage is very well placed for everywhere on the island and us a great launchpad from which to explore Arran. It is a shame there is nowhere secluded to sit out and perhaps some updating of the bathrooms should be considered but it certainly suited all our needs. Thank you.

Cottage was spotless and had all that we needed inc speedy Wi-fi ! Just 5 mins away from local village with excellent hotel food and great little golf course. Ideal spot for touring the island but nice and peaceful location. A wee gift of local chutneys waiting for us which was lovely. A great break.
