About Mrs Margaret Brock

My husband and I are both retired vets. We live in the Midlands but both come from Scotland. We love having the flat near family and friends and enjoy being so close to the sea. We have one son living in Glasgow and our second son with his wife and our two grandsons live in Cheshire.

Mrs Margaret Brock purchased this apartment in 2005

Why Mrs Margaret Brock chose Ayrshire & Arran

We think you'll find our flat very spacious and well equiped. It's in an ideal position only a few minutes walk into the town centre and all amenities. There are excellent restaurants with all tastes catered for.

What makes this apartment unique

We have wi fi in the flat and it is looked after by our manager Fiona who is available if you have any needs during your stay.

Great location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 3 nights the main purpose of our visit being to go to Ayr races (my last racecourse in Britain). The apartment was spacious, well equipped and very clean. Convenient location especially for the beach which was very handy for the many walks we went on with our Labrador. Weather was fabulous and we also made use of the outside garden which proved to be a sun trap. Good value for money, would definitely recommend.

Excellent!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here with my partner and son, fantastic base to catch up with family and friends in the area, the flat was so lovely they ended up visiting me!! Fantastic value the flat is huge and has very high quality furniture, they even provided a Christmas tree! One slight niggle the dressing room has a fold up camp bed that smelt really damp, you may want to look at. I visit Ayr once a month and this will be the first place I check for availability! Thank you for a lovely experience.
