Charming stable block apartments, close to Victorian manor house
Set in 15-acres beautiful grounds with lawned areas
Set close to Largs on the Firth of Clyde, these charming holiday apartments have been carefully converted from the stable block of a delightful Victorian manor house, which is located some 200 yards away along a tree-lined drive. Offering every modern comfort and convenience, enjoy the relaxing ambience of the scenic setting. You can relax amid 15 acres of landscaped grounds, or in the lawned areas, which are surrounded by woodland. There are wonderful views of the hills and islands of the Firth of Clyde, and plenty of outdoor activities to enjoy. There are two golf courses, trout farm fishing, sailing, nature trails and pony trekking, as well as cruises aboard the famous ’Waverley’ paddle steamer. In Largs (2 miles) you will find the Kelburn Country Centre and Vikingar - an exciting all-weather leisure centre, with a swimming pool, 500-seat theatre and children’s soft play area. There is also a choice of small shops, a supermarket, post office, pubs and a station. Although an attractive seaside resort now, Largs like much of this area has enjoyed an interesting history - in 1263 it was where the Norse fleet were defeated. From Largs take a ferry to Great Cumbrae Island and visit the aquarium, near Keppel Pier, and the ’Cathedral of the Isles’ on the sandy bay at Millport. The Cumbraes are not the only isles within easy reach. Go from Wemyss Bay across the waters to Bute, or drive south to Ardrossen and arrive in the exceptionally mild island of Arran. Arran is home to a wealth of places to visit, including the NTS owned Goatfell (2,866 ft) with its magnificent views from the Clyde coast to the Hebrides and Northern Ireland. Golf enthusiasts will enjoy making the trip here, as Arran has 6 courses in which to shoot a round. Manor Park is well-placed for anyone looking to plan a diverse holiday itinerary. Whether you take to the sea or prefer to head inland, there is much to fill the days. Within an hour’s drive you can reach Loch Lomond, Burns country and Glasgow, with Edinburgh just a little further. Pub 2.5 miles.

Customer Reviews of Strathisla Stable Apartment, nr Largs, sleeps 5/6
1st comment: Fantastic location - apartments located in the grounds of an old Victorian Manor House. The grounds are beautiful with peacocks, rabbits and even a deer spotted! Also within very close reach of Largs & surrounding area. The decor & furniture is a little ’retro’ but it is one of the cleanest holiday apartments I have ever stayed in. This was our second visit here (previous visit was 8 years ago), and it did not disappoint. Would love to stay here again in the future! July 2011.
2nd comment: This was an excellent flat seeing the deer from the kitchen window was the icing on the cake and a very nice walk down to the shore in the evening to finsh off your day. Aug 2010.
3rd comment: As described, comfortable and homely, suitable for children and dog. April 2010.
4th comment: Although the furnishings in the property were old fashioned it went well with the feel of the property and was very clean and nice to stay in with beautiful Scottish surroundings and the sea at the bottom of the road. A holiday is what you make of it but there was so much beauty around it was easy to make it a lovely break. Aug 2008.
