    "lovely quiet location, stunning views of the countryside. very close to the places we wanted to visit. The owners were absolutely lovely. We would go back there in a heartbeat!!!!"

    "The owners were lovely but S23477 needs to be brought up todate. There are no window dressings in the kitchen, blinds broken in the living room and curtains did not fit in living room and just fitted in bedroom."

    "Spacious & comfortable, in an ideal location with stunning views & is really dog friendly.All the comfort's you need and the roses and homemade marmalade were very nice touches much appreciated."

    "We are just back from a wonderful week in S23477. It was heaven on earth. The comfort was second to none, albeit the décor was set in the 70s but the bungalow used to be a granny annex and has not been updated. Even so there was a comforting presence which reminded us of our parent's homes so we were relaxed immediately. The accommodation was absolutely spotless and the location was superb. The views from all the windows was over open countryside (30 miles distant, we were told). The owners were so warm and welcoming, there was a welcome gift of a jar of homemade strawberry jam and a jar of homemade marmalade on our arrival, they were absolutely delicious too. Our dog was so happy and contented. The grounds around S23477 are really lovely. Ruby, our dog, just roamed, sat and slept in the sunshine on the lovely grass all around. The local village, Tarbolton, was a mile away and we had to drive to get there as there are no footpaths (which is awkward when you are walking with a dog). Nevertheless, we drove out to Ayr, Troon, Saltcoats and Largs and walked for miles along the lovely sandy beaches and picked up supplies of any food we needed while we were out. We were very lucky with the weather too, temperatures reaching 24 degrees on most days. Everything was really superb and we will definitely make the 7 hour trip to stay at S23477 again."

    Glenda
    "An excellent cottage, handy for getting about or a lazy day in the garden, Harold and Deidre were first class hosts, would definately visit again."

    "Best cottage and peace to live. Lovely owners.I will recommend this .Mr Thomas and family."
    Zoe
    "Lovely holiday cottage with fantastic views and a great garden for the children to play in, would definitely stay here again."
    Margaret
    "We had a great time in S23477 and the owners couldn't have been more helpful, the views from the lounge were absolutely magnificent."
    Anne
    "We had the most wonderful holiday in Scotland, only enhanced by the welcome we received from Deidre and Harold. Their cottage is quant and quirky, with outstanding views. We arrvived from having attended The Open and we were FREEZING from the weather. Deidre and Harold had turned on the heating for us, pre empting the weather, and we were overjoyed for the warmth of our arrival. S23477 certainly was more than enough for our needs, but it could do with a little modernising! Freeview TV might be worth investing in, or an extension of Sky TV from the main cottage. There was also no WiFi, which sadly we've all become accustomed to in these modern times. That said, we would return tomorrow. We played some magnificent golf courses, we were super lucky with the weather and Deidre and Harold were brilliant hosts."

    "Beautiful location, lovely owners. thoroughly enjoyed our stay."
    Peter
    "Thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Our hosts were fantastic. S23477 was well equipped - even to the extent of having a washing machine! The views were amazing. Lots of wildlife visited, including a pair of partridges in the garden. I would highly recommend this as a place to stay in Ayrshire."

    "great hosts and an excellent holiday couldn't ask for more"
    robin
    "Had a wonderful stay. ON arrival was met with a very warm welcome and giving a friendly tour of the bungalow and shown where everything was. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The venue was absolutely perfect plenty of open space for our dog to enjoy with panoramic views. Close to Ayr and all facilities. Will definitely be going again."
    Anna
    "Cosy and warm, amazing views and lovely garden. Good location for access by car to lots of things to do. Based on other places we have stayed I would have expected kitchen to be better stocked, with perhaps a small amount of tea and coffee, and more than one kitchen knife. But overall we had a really good week here and will definitely return to the area."

    Katja
    "Lovely place to stay. S23477 was everything we were hoping for and the owners were lovely and most welcoming. Beds were very comfortable and S23477 cosy and warm. I've deducted a point from the full marks because of the settee which was a bit on the small side. Overall this was one of our best experiences of cottage holidays and we would love to come back soon. The dogs loved it too :)"
