Property code: CA308

A beautifully renovated, adults-only romantic semi detached cottage for two in the village of Brodick on the Isle of Arran. The cottage has outstanding views out to the sea and the hills and is perfectly placed for exploring Arran’s wild coastline and its rugged mountainous interior. The cottage is set back from the road in beautiful mature gardens, making it a real escape from the world with plenty of privacy and space just to kick back and enjoy the views. It will suit those looking to simply relax as much as those looking for an active break, with excellent hill-walking, golfing and cycling on hand. The centre of Brodick is less than 1 mile away. There, you’ll find a choice of pubs, shops and restaurants, and a harbour with ferries to Ardrossan.

The cottage is all one level. The entrance is at the back, through patio doors that lead into the open-plan living space. This cosy, well-equipped room has been perfectly constructed to make the most of the space and has everything two people will need for an easy, relaxing break. There is a comfortable sofa, coffee table and TV with streaming services for evenings at home. The kitchen area is equipped with everything you’ll need to cook up a hearty breakfast or romantic dinner, eaten at the dining table for two. There is a twin bedroom with lovely sea views and an en-suite shower room.

Outside, the property has a private patio garden with furniture. It’s the ideal spot for outdoor breakfasts, evening drinks and afternoons enjoying the sun. There is ample parking.

With the village of Brodick so close, there is plenty to do and see within walking distance. Brodick Beach is wild and sandy, with wonderful views over to the snow-capped mountain peaks beyond. The quieter beach of Strabane, or Duke's Beach, is just the other side of the Rosa Burn. There are also numerous shorefront walks from the village and the harbour area is a wonderful place to spend a few hours exploring the excellent local pubs, cafes and shops.

Brodick Castle, a National Trust property surrounded by a country park, is 1.5 miles from the property. It is a grand baronial castle set in grounds with woodland trails where you can spot red squirrels and waterfalls and ponds.

Away from Brodick, there is more excellent walking, both along the coast and in the hills. The Arran Coastal Way offers some spectacular views and is a great way to explore the island and its many seaside villages.

For golfers, there are seven golf courses across the island, many of them with spectacular views. In the village of Lamlash, 4 miles away, there is an outdoor centre where you can arrange sea kayaking and canoeing. Wildlife spotting boat trips can also be arranged.
