Description

Please note: This property is only suitable for adults.

Beautifully renovated in 2015 with fabulous attention to detail throughout, St Minver is a delightful cottage for two just outside the centre of Brodick which benefits from  glorious views both out to sea and up towards the hills.

Set back from the road within beautiful mature gardens, St Minver is just a short walk both to the beach and access to the mountains. The cottage offers a very high standard of accommodation and is in the ideal location for hill walkers, golfers and cyclists alike. It also provides an extremely idyllic setting for those seeking a romantic break.

When it comes to dining, the kitchen caters for the visitor's every need and has its own private outside dining area with views up towards the glen. From here, visitors to St Minver can look forward to the prospect of enjoying some spectacular sunsets over the hills. However, after a long day on the mountains, on the golf course or even, perhaps, relaxing on the beach, one may instead choose to sample some of the many excellent local restaurants in Brodick, all of which can be reached along the shorefront on foot.

The cottage itself offers easy access to many of the attractions that the Isle of Arran has to offer. These include its historical sites, fabulous beaches, its low and high level walks, as well as the Isle of Arran distillery in the north. Brodick Castle and Gardens is also a very pleasant ten minute walk along the coast. For the golf enthusiast, there are seven welcoming golf clubs with courses set in beautiful coastal locations. In addition, the outdoor activity centre in the village of Lamlash offers pursuits such as sea kayaking and canoeing and regular boat trips are also available from the marina. Wildlife enthusiasts will not be disappointed either, with seals, otters and deer regularly sighted around Arran.

For those looking for a more relaxing holiday and some pampering, there is a new spa just a very short walk from St Minver, complete with swimming pool, sauna and steam room. In addition, Brodick offers a wide range of gift shops, galleries, restaurants and specialist food shops, as well as numerous tearooms, restaurants and coffee shops. There is also a supermarket within easy walking distance of the cottage.

Less than ten minutes walk from the ferry and on the regular bus route that runs around the island, St Minver is easily accessible for those who are travelling without a car.

    St Minver reviews
    Thoughtfully planned, comfortable accomodation, great views, outside eating area, handy for town and surprise welcome pack provided by very hospitable hosts.
    Mr Kent - May 2017
    Everything you could possibly need in this cottage, plus a perfect location on Arran, to walk to attractions and Brodick, plus beautiful walks from the doorstep. Have never experienced such a warm welcome as we got from the owners, who were very helpful throughout our stay.
    Mrs Smith - May 2017
    We spent a lovely relaxing week at this well equipped cottage. It had everything one needed in all areas. The bedroom was beautiful with a stunning out look. There was toiletries which added a nice little touch in shower room. Should we return to Arran John and Anne would be our first choice as they are perfect hosts. Ps the welcome pack was most appreciated Jim&irene 15 /4 / 2017 to 22/4/2017
    Mr Mcnaught - April 2017
    We spent a week at St Minver Cottage and enjoyed it very much indeed. The owners, John and Anne, are friendly and welcoming. Their welcome pack is probably the best we have had anywhere with Arran cheese, chutney and oatcakes, milk and eggs in the fridge - and even a bottle of white wine! The Cottage is certainly small but we found it warm and comfortable, attractively decorated and extremely well equipped with crockery, cutlery, cleaning materials etc. We had generally good weather for our week so we were really sitting in St Minver only in the evenings when we watched some of the selection of DVDs also thoughtfully provided by John and Anne. We ate outside on the patio, very comfortable table and chairs, when the family and friends looked in on us. The Cottage has lovely views - Brodick Bay to the front and the mountains to the back. We would return to St Minver and will recommend it to friends. Robert & Hazel, Troon
    Mr Macdonald - April 2017
    Enjoyed every minute at St Minver. Spotless with everything you needed. Hosts full of ideas, with knowledge of walks and the whole of Arran. Will not hesitate to return. Shops, pubs, and pier all within walking distance, bus service also great, whole tour around the island for £5.70. Would recommend it without hesitation.
    Mrs Pullen - April 2017
    This is such a lovely place to stay. The accommodation is part of Anne and John's bungalow, but completely separate with own entrance and own outdoor space. It is so cosy, comfortable, spotlessly clean, and finished to a very high standard. We had everything we could possibly need, including lots of information about the island and also a lovely welcome pack from the owners. Anne and John were really friendly, providing any extra info we needed and making sure we felt at home. The cottage has fantastic views over the golf course and to the sea from the bedroom window. For those with cars, there is a space on the drive. The island is stunning. We saw lots of wildlife, went on many long walks with amazing views, and ate lots of lovely food. We particularly liked the GlenIlse bistro in Lamlash and spent valentine's there - the food is superb. The cheese shop is within walking distance and is well worth a visit, as is the distillery in Lochranza (also has a nice cafe). For the avid mountain biker there are many trails on the island, and for those who like luxury, I would recommend a day at the Auchrannie spa - fabulous! We utterly enjoyed our week-long holiday on this beautiful and friendly island and will be back in the future.
    Miss Edwards - February 2017
    We would highly recommend this lovely accommodation with sea views. Exceptionally well decorated and beautifully clean and comfortable. Just what we needed for a short stay on the Isle of Arran. The owners are friendly and welcoming and left us lots of goodies to enjoy. Particularly good for us as the owners were willing to allow us to book a short break instead of a full week. We can't wait to go back and stay again.
    Mrs Major - October 2016
    This is one of the most perfect places we have stayed. John and Anne were very welcoming and helpful. The welcoming pack was lovely. Well planned accommodation, beautifully presented. Everything you could possibly want, lovely patio with fabulous views both front and rear.
    Mrs Wallwork - October 2016
    The accommodation was spotlessly clean and very nicely decorated. The gardens were lovely with plenty of birds feeding with some red squirrels passing through. The view across the golf course and out to sea was lovely. it was just a short walk to the seashore path. It was only 25 minutes walk to Brodick Castle along the beach or 15 minutes to the shops in the other direction. The owners were very friendly and helpful. We hope to return again next year. It was a perfect ten days holiday all round.
    Mrs Turner - September 2016
    Lovely accommodation with all that you require for a self catering holiday on the isle of Arran. Anne and John were ideal hosts Very friendly, always available if needed and a pleasure to talk to. The welcome pack was a nice surprise and very thoughtful. The accommodation is ideal for two people, easy to maintain and only a few minutes drive from the ferry. Lovely views from both the front and back of the property and your own private outdoor sitting areas to enjoy both. All in a beautifully maintained garden. We loved Arran, having visited 30 years ago it was nice to see it as we remembered. We walked from the door into Glen Rosa which is spectacular, seeing a stag on the hillside was a bonus, and also enjoyed our days with the seals at Kildonan and Blackwaterfoot. We saw otters on the way into Corrie and also saw one walking around the rocks at Kildonan. The Arran Heritage Museum just along the road, with a nice little cafe, was very interesting too. Lots more on the list which we didn't manage so will have to return, for two weeks next time. At St Minver? Definitely!
    Mrs Amor - September 2016
    Having not long returned from our stay at St Minver we would just like to thank our hosts John and Ann very much for a very well maintained, beautifully presented annexe for our holiday on Arran. We would both also like to thank them for our very individual welcome as well as the individual welcome package, it just made the start to our stay even more enjoyable. The information and tips supplied by John and Ann were second to none and they are a fantastic couple and we feel very privileged to have met them and stayed at there lovely home. Once again a 5*+ accommodation.
    Mr Reay - August 2016
    We had a lovely time at St Minver. The owners were so nice. Left a lovely welcome pack and was much appreciated. The place was spotless and lovely wee details. DVDs to watch books re Arran walks and binoculars in most rooms. The view was lovely and their garden was gorgeous. We will definately go back.
    Mrs Cuthbert - July 2016
    Lovely holiday accommodation furnished to a very high standard.
    Mrs Goodwin - July 2016
    Ann & John couldn't have treated us better if we'd have been family
    Mr Commins - July 2016
    Can't fault this property-one of the best we have ever stayed in, John and Ann were lovely hosts and have thought of everything in terms of the contents and decor of the property.
    Mr Turnbull - June 2016
    St Minver has everything. Much thought has been put into the house. Comfy bed. Very quiet location. You will want for nothing. Great views too. Your own little sun trap patio area at the back. Car unnecessary.
    Mr Darnes - June 2016
    Very clean, well appointed with good furnishings. Plenty of 'light' reading and guidebooks. Easy to manage. 'Bathroom' would have been a tight squeeze for a large person.
    Mrs Thorp - May 2016
    Anne and John went out of there way to ensure we had an enjoyable holiday. We would book again.
    Mr Halliday - May 2016
    A great house; stunning views at front of house of the garden, golf course & Brodick Bay; beautiful views of hills from back patio doors & lovely quiet peaceful patio area to sit in & enjoy sun after a busy day walking & cycling. The apartment is beautifully appointed & Anne & John have worked hard to ensure nothing had been forgotten to ensure our every comfort. This was our first holiday in Arran (wish we had discovered it years ago) but it will not be our last. Anne & John were most helpful in informing us of places to visit, as was a lady in the tourist information. It was too stormy for the seals the day we visited Kildonan but we watched them on several visits to Lamlash Bay. We climbed Goat Fell on a very windy day;didn't stay long at top but views were wonderful. Walked to Corrie nan Lochan,as recommended by John & Anne. If you continue up slope on left to a cairn you get a different view of Goat Fell & then look back down hillside to lochan & views of Mull of Kintyre.Stunning! All in all a great holiday thanks to welcome & hospitality of John & Anne; the amazing scenery around the island & the friendliness of all the people we met.
    Mrs Deighan - April 2016
    This little holiday let was so nice and included everything that we needed the garden was lovely as where the owners who were very helpful and even provided us with transport to a local hotel when we were going out for a meal to celebrate my birthday. We will definitely be back and would highly recommend this let to family and friends.
    Mrs Walls - April 2016
    Perfect location for our needs .....house was spick and span nothing out of place. On a bus route Within walking distance of Brodick
    Mr Grendowicz - April 2016
    Lovely self contained flat with great views over Brodick. Anne and John were nice and very friendly.Would return again to this cottage
    Mr Quinn - March 2016
    It was clear that the owners had catered for our every need, couldn't fault it. Perfect setting ideal for all amenities and beautifully renovated cottage.
    Mr Wood - August 2015
    Looking for somewhere to stay on Arran, there wasn't much self-catering accommodation for just a couple. St Minver was just right for my wife and I - quiet, comfortable accommodation. Lovely view of the sea across the golf course from the bedroom. John and Anne were very welcoming and helpful. Definitely highly recommended.
    Mr Pink - August 2015
    friendly and helpful owners, rooms clean and homely,good situation
    Mr Hancock - August 2015
    What a gem. Perfect location with perfect hosts. Tastefully decorated & extra touches made a small property feel luxurious. Peaceful location but central for so much & a beautiful sea view out the bedroom window. Brodick Brasserie & Fiddlers were particularly good for food & within easy walking distance.
    Ms Turnbull - July 2015
