Beautiful setting, comfortable home

Straiton is a beautiful village with many great walks, from easy family strolls to demanding hill climbs with amazing views. You can hear a little stream from the cottage. Our dog loved it too

As a party of 4 adults me and my wife Amanda and my mum and dad Cath and Henry came here to celebrate my parents wedding anniversary my parents were greeted with a lovely message and a bottle of champagne on arrival The cottage was beautiful very peaceful and relaxing it has everything you need and there is a shop and a pub about 200 Mts away Ayr is not too far either if you want to do some shopping also the garden area and the outhouse is very nice with a bbq and outside decking area right next to the river which is an ideal fishing spot the cottage was immaculately clean inside and out and the wood burner was great at night when it got a wee touch cold five stars from me my wife Amanda and my mum and dad Cath and Henry . We spoke to the owner before we got there and she was very pleasant and helpful and assisted us were to go and so on we will definitely be visiting again in the near future thanks again Nancy from the cartwright family
