Make a holiday cottage in Ayr your home away from home

Ayr is just 37 miles southwest of Glasgow, and a popular seaside destination with long sandy beaches. This is a great holiday spot for an active group or family, or even a couple out to enjoy beautiful scenery, great walks and other outdoor activities. There’s no shortage of Things to do in Ayr, but the seaside resort is also a great place to simply rest up and relax in a comfortable Ayr holiday cottage. Racing fans will be pleased to hear that Ayr has a famous race course which holds the Scottish Grand National each year. The course holds many races throughout the year so there are plenty of opportunities to catch a meeting. There's a whole range of outdoor activities for all, whether holidaying with a thrill seeker or home body. HomeAway holiday cottages in Ayr are varied, with some properties near the water, some with gardens and others pet friendly. Facilities to make them a real home from home include BBQs, dishwashers, washer/dryers, cable TV and DVD players.

Things to do

-Golf: As the country where golf originated, there is no shortage of excellent courses. Belleisle Golf Course is a well-groomed course, suitable for all abilities. A round of 18 holes is open to non-members at a reasonable price and players will enjoy the scenery and wide open spaces. Other golf courses within easy distance of holiday homes in Ayr are at Seafield and Dalmilling.

-Historical attractions: The Burns Monument is a lovely place to visit on a sunny day in summer when the vivid and bright colours of the gardens can be appreciated. The view from the top of the tower is enchanting and just a short walk away is the Robert Burns museum which hosts many events such as art shows, as well as displays of Burns’ items and collections. Even non-poetry fans will enjoy the peaceful and tranquil environment.

-Family entertainment: Culzean Castle and County Park is a cultural and beautiful experience. The castle is a short drive from holiday homes in Ayr and well worth the visit. The best time of year to visit the castle is in the summer during one of the many events held there that include open-air concerts, jousting, battle re-enactments, theatre on the lawn, craft fairs, and much more.

-Festivals: The Burns and a’ That Festival takes place in and around Ayr each year in the spring. The festival grows bigger every year with an increasingly good musical line up, comedy sets and stalls. Although a traditional camping-style festival, day tickets are available for those who'd rather return to comfortable surroundings.

-Outdoor pursuits: The walking and cycling trails in and around Ayr offer spectacular views. With rolling hills, cliffs, caves, forests and flat seafronts to explore, there are walking trails for all abilities. Friendly and cosy bars and pubs along the way offer plenty of refreshment stops.

Weather in Ayr

The weather in the summer can reach highs of 22°C which is an ideal temperature for walking around the gardens or along the coast. In the winter the temperature can be as low as just 3°C. That temperature might seem off-putting when considering holiday homes in Ayr for December, but many places in Scotland look their best when Mother Nature has dressed for winter.

Travel to Ayr

Ayr is served by a railway station with mainline services from Glasgow and Glasgow Prestwick Airport is less than an hour’s drive away. Coaches (National Express) from all the major cities serve Glasgow and with the M8 going close to Ayr (again from Glasgow), road travel is easy. Holidaymakers can consider taking the scenic Galloway Tourist Route along the A713 from Gretna to Ayr.

Melanie has really thought of everything to make your stay as comfortable as possible. We loved everything about Chanel View, we felt really at home there. It was lovely to wake up to a sea view every day - there was even a pair of binoculars to look out to sea. We stayed in the double bedroom on the ground floor, and the bed was extremely comfortable, we both have back problems, so to have a comfy bed was a real bonus to us. There is plenty of hanging space in the really large double wardrobe, and shelves for folded clothes. The kitchen is fully equipped, with everything you could possible need to cook, or even bake..The utility room was ideal for keeping all the dog food, dog towels etc and for feeding the dogs. There is also a very large extra fridge in there with a freezer so plenty of food storage.The cottage is also spotlessly clean and in excellent condition throughout- there was nothing broken or in need of repair. The location of the cottage was great, a walk to the beach or Whiting bay - both in easy reach. I would highly recommend this cottage and hopefully we will be back again. Thank you Melanie for everything.

Eight of us, all ladies, returned to Westview for our second visit this year. The house is large, bright very well equipped and very welcoming. Rooms are a generous size and beds very comfortable. Lovely little touches provided by June too. Fresh flowers in all rooms, milk in the fridge and nibbles. The day of our arrival was very cold and when we entered the sitting room we were met by a glowing fire. Just lovely. The house has a lovely garden to sit out and is so central for all amenities. A few minutes walk to the beach and a straight walk into town (about 15 minutes) where there a lovely little coffee shops. We all just loved our weekend and have booked again for next year. Can't wait! Thank you June. x.

We spent many hours walking our dog Ruby miles along the beach both first thing in the morning and just as it was getting dark in the evening, heaven. The home itself was warm and welcoming and very homely. A supply of basic essentials were left in the fridge which we were very grateful for on our first evening and also the present Rosie had left for our new Grandaughter,, thanks again for that, it was extremely kind of you. The house had everything that we needed and we spent a very pleasant week there although because the weather was so obliging we were out in the fresh air more than we had anticipated but it was lovely to come home to a nice warm house and curl up in front of he TVs each evening. Troon itself has lots of individual shops rather than the high street stores which I found lovely and there are lots of very good cafe's and restaurants offering a wide variety of choice. We certainly hope to return again in the not too distant future and would definitely book this property again. Many thanks Rosie.
