Good location for exploring the area. The Drive down to the big house was useful for dog walk and a nice to have a secure garden. Traffic noise sometimes a nuisance but it was stated in the details so we expected it. Hot tub was a nice feature.

Delightful cottage, warm and cosy. Garden very safe for pets but close to quite a busy road once the gate is open.

The cottage was ideal for touring South Ayrshire and only a 15 min drive from Dumfries House which is a must visit. The road is a busy shortcut across country but a high wall and fencing keeps the garden secure for pets. A pity that the landowner of the estate does not encourage visitors with appropriate signage but loads to visit all around

We loved our stay at Cob cottage. Such a lovely location and the cottage was perfect. Very dog friendly with a lovely big garden to run around in. Owners obviously really think about what maybe needed during the stay which made it even better :) Having the hot tub ready to jump into after a long journey up was very much appreciated! We would love tRead moreo come and stay again. We were sad to leave. Hide

Good location for visiting places of interest and walking sections of the river Ayr pathway. Dean Castle, Kilmarnock, worth visiting for significant collection of musical instruments and armour. Dumfries House and grounds should not be missed. Plenty of interest for fans of Scotlands great poet, Robert Burns.

Had a lovely weekend at the property but there was no internet access as listed. The hot tub was broken although we were allowed to use another on the estate. I had elderly parents with me and they found the property cold at this time of year. Even after heating the rooms cooled down quickly. Road can be busy and noisy. We still enjoyed our me stayRead more. Hide
