Enjoy a romantic getaway or family holiday to this stylish cottage. Relax and unwind in the spacious private hot tub and enjoy spectacular sea and loch views over the surrounding countryside. 

Located on a large family-run farm, this luxurious property is nestled in an elevated position allowing for magnificent sea views towards Isle of Arran, Ailsa Craig and over the Busbie Muir Reservoir. Surrounded by rolling green hills and with the splendid Ayrshire coastline nearby, this is a paradise for walkers, bikers and hikers with numerous coastal trails and country tracks to explore right from the door.

Minimalist and elegant, this stylish single-storey byre makes the most of its lovely surroundings with patio doors allowing light to flood into the open-plan living space. The neutral tones and warm wooden details contrast beautifully with splashes of dark grey and chrome, creating a contemporary yet cosy home-from-home, perfect for couples and families alike.

Step inside to store all your outdoor clothing in the hall before heading through to the large, open-plan living space. With underfloor heating throughout, toes will be toasty as you prepare a delicious meal in the kitchen to be enjoyed altogether at the dining table. On warm evenings, open the patio doors and let the fresh air breeze in, and if its chilly, snuggle up on the sumptuous leather sofas for family film nights. Wake refreshed in stylish bedrooms, both boasting TVs, perfect for those lazy mornings - and with two bathrooms there is no need to queue for the shower. Take your morning coffee to the garden and watch the sun rise over the surrounding countryside.

Outside, the fully enclosed garden has a picnic table and a charcoal BBQ, perfect for al fresco dining and evenings stargazing. Kids will love the play area within the grounds, and you will love the wonderful private hot tub, located within a double-glazed summer house with magnificent countryside views towards the Isle of Arran, Ailsa Craig and Busbie Loch - the perfect place to end a busy day.
