Customer Reviews of The Cottage, Girvan, sleeps 6
1st comment: A fantastic, relaxing week. The property exceeded our expectations and the owners Mary and John were very welcoming and helpful. March 2012.
2nd comment: The hosts are extremely friendly and our children enjoyed helping out on the farm. The play room is a bonus for anyone with children, especially on rainy afternoons. We would recommend visiting Ayr beach, go via the coastal road for stunning views. Excellent parks at Ayr beach and Girvan, hours of fun to be had. Ruins and beach at Dunure also worth a visit and the pub in the harbour there serves good food. Also recommend Culzean Castle - house, grounds and Port Carrick fantastic. The children enjoyed trying to find the lego men hidden in each room, it kept them entertained whilst adults looked around. Aug 2011.
3rd comment: The cottage was a lovely retreat and as a family we enjoyed it. The next time we won’t need to take so much stuff we know what is there now, washing machine to DVD’s. It is a home from home. The garden with its abundance of flowers and bird song was a lovely place to sit in the sunshine. There was farm fresh eggs to buy and they were delicious and I am forever converted. The owners were very friendly and made us feel very welcome. Fresh milk and chocolate brownies were waiting for us when we arrived. It is a working farm and daily life continues around you, but the farmer was more than willing to answer any questions we had. The children, though small still talk about the cows and chickens and pig and horses they saw. The cottage is an ideal base from, which to visit many wonderful places in Ayrshire. We loved the beach and its only 10minutes in the car. July 2011.
