Fantastic property in a beautiful area

  • 5 of 5

Amazing cottage with everything you could possibly need. One of the nicest we have ever stayed in. When they say fully equipped they really mean it! Unlike some places they have not sacrificed quality for profit, comfortable seating, well stocked kitchen, lovely beds and good quality sheets and towels. Beautiful summer house.

The only down side we could find was the low water pressure in the shower but this is totally outside Owners control.

I would unreservedly recommend this property to anyone who needs a relaxing stay in the countryside.

Whilst you are in Straiton call in at the local community shop and take a small drive to Kirkmichael Arms for a lovely meal.

Stunning cottage.

  • 5 of 5

This has to be one of the best holiday homes we have ever stayed in. The cottage & gardens across the road were stunning. It has to be in one of the best locations in Scotland. The town of Ayr, Girvan & Burns home in Alloway are only a short drive away. It is so quiet & tranquil, all you hear is the local wildlife. Brilliant 3 day stay. Would come back again & again.

Straight back to Straiton

  • 5 of 5

Such a beautiful cottage in a beautiful place !!!! .... with glorious weather the massive garden just across the road was absolutely brilliant for our dog Winston. The cottage itself is so spacious and has everything needed. We explored Straiton and the surrounding areas, and with a pub just round the corner to finish the day off we felt like we never wanted to leave ;0)).

Really lovely place to stay

  • 5 of 5

Only had 3 nights here. Everything was just right. A busy road yet it never intruded in our time in the cottage. Well equipped cottage and a very comfortable bed. Villages around were delightful but the towns were disappointing - Ayr, Girvan & Kilmarnock all rather drab and ugly. Road from house to Galloway Forest closed but accessible as far as sign to ‘osprey viewing area’. An exhilarating ride although most of the forest has been felled.

Of course there are many wonderful walks to take from the cottage door.
