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.

Stylish & comfortable holiday home

5 of 5
Second visit as enjoyable as the first. Weather even better. Still plenty to enjoy from a great base. Good local facilities . Property stylish and in immaculate order and with pleasant enclosed garden (tho could use a bigger shade canopy as the rear patio is a sun trap!) Definitely recommended.

Fantastic home away from home!

5 of 5
Dawn was so lovely when I met her to get the keys. The whole house was decorated for Christmas which added a lovely touch. There was so many extra we had no idea would be there, like some prosecco and celebrations, and some milk in the fridge for us. There were dvds, games for the kids, you name it! We had the most wonderful stay, and can’t thank Dawn enough for our time there. We will most certainly be back!
