No. 6 Douglas Row belongs to a 'street' of pretty sandstone cottages built for the estate workers of Brodick Castle in the 19th century. On first impression, it feels as though you are 'stepping back in time' with long front gardens originally provided for growing fruit and vegetables and backyards with outside facilities! The distinctive character of the holiday cottages is protected by Historic Scotland, however you will be pleased to know that No. 6 has been fully modernised and provides very comfortable self catering accommodation in a contemporary style. And the 'backyard' has been transformed into a courtyard garden that catches the late afternoon sun, ideal for a few drinks or a BBQ.
A short stroll leads to the golf course, where visitors are welcome, and the sandy beach of Brodick Bay. Also nearby, you will find the Auchrannie Spa Resort with its extensive range of leisure facilities, including a spa swimming pool, indoor sports hall, beauty and complementary therapies (book in advance), a hair salon and a choice of restaurants and bars. There will be a new children's play barn opening in July 2011 with soft-play, free wi-fi and a cafe.
Brodick Castle & Country Park is approx 2 miles away and offers a programme of guided walks in the summer months. The country park has a number of woodland trails, including The Duchess Bathing Pool and a sculpture trail in Merkland Wood created by a renowned local artist, Tim Pomeroy. There is also an adventure playground and nature centre with 'hands-on' activities for children. In the castle grounds, you will discover a romantic Bavarian summerhouse lined with pine cones and a formal walled garden.
Just before the castle gates you will find Cladach, the original location of Brodick village, now home to a range of island businesses. You can stock up on island produce with hot smoked salmon from Creelers, delicious flavoured cheddars, home-made crowdie and oaties from the Island Cheese Shop; award-winning beers from the Arran Brewery and luxury toiletries from Arran Aromatics. There is also a well-stocked outdoor gear shop and the Wineport, a popular bistro serving drinks and meals throughout the day. Cladach is also a starting point for climbers and walkers with a path leading to Goatfell, Arran's highest peak.
No. 6 is highly recommended for relaxing family holidays or for small gatherings, a long weekend or mid-week breaks outside of peak holiday periods. A car is useful for exploring the island but not essential. There is secure parking at Ardrossan harbour and a regular island bus service (6 minutes journey time from Brodick pier to the Primary school stop near the cottage). Local taxis also available.
Open plan living room with dining area. Kitchen. Bedroom with 2 bunks suitable for 2 children. Bathroom with bath & separate shower, WC, WHB.
Two double bedrooms.
Large front garden, separated by the lane servicing other cottages in the row. Rear enclosed courtyard garden with furniture.
Holiday Protection Scheme
Holiday Protection Scheme
Cottages & Castles Ltd. (acting as agents for property owners) provides a guarantee for tenants who have to cancel their holiday at a cottage.
If it is necessary to cancel your holiday, for any of the reasons A 1-5 below, you may do so at any time up until the close of business on the last working day before your tenancy commences and we will refund your balance. Your deposit is not refundable. If you have made a late booking and paid in full you will receive your payment minus the normal deposit sum (usually 30%).
There is no charge for this holiday protection – it is included in the cost of your holiday. Please note that the protection does not apply to holidays in our properties with codes beginning with P (usually castles, mansions and lodges).
Deposits may be transferred to a different date for a holiday at the same property within 12 months of the original holiday date, subject to availability, but not, however, for a different property. If the new booking is at a higher rate the tenant must pay the extra cost. No refund will be made if the new date is at a lower rate.
