Immerse yourselves in tranquil Ayrshire when you stay at this traditional cottage in scenic countryside 5 miles outside Ayr. Sleeping four guests and also welcoming two canine companions, the two-bedroom, single-storey cottage is in a prime position for anyone who enjoys walking, cycling or wildlife watching. Situated beside the entrance to Martnaham Nature Reserve and 5.5 miles from the coast, there is a myriad of picturesque footpaths and trails to follow in the area. Return from your adventures to soak in the steaming hot tub at the end of the day.

Wander inside this Scottish retreat to make yourselves at home in its bright, welcoming rooms. With a fresh, airy appeal, the attractive abode marries elements of the past, including sash windows, with more modern touches.

Head through to the kitchen/diner to make yourselves a cup of tea to enjoy with a slice of Dundee cake or shortbread from a bakery in Ayr. Prepare homemade meals to eat at the table in here too, opening the French doors onto the garden on summer days. While away your evenings in front of a roaring wood burner and a good film on TV.

Venture off to one of the two inviting bedrooms to enjoy a good night’s sleep after all your adventures. There is a double bedroom and a twin here, together with a family bathroom and a shower room. The bathroom has a spa bath.

Delightful cottage, warm and cosy. Garden very safe for pets but close to quite a busy road once the gate is open.

The cottage was ideal for touring South Ayrshire and only a 15 min drive from Dumfries House which is a must visit. The road is a busy shortcut across country but a high wall and fencing keeps the garden secure for pets. A pity that the landowner of the estate does not encourage visitors with appropriate signage but loads to visit all around

A beautiful cottage in an equally beautiful location. The large, enclosed garden was perfect for our children and dogs to run around in. The hot tub was a added luxary! Loved staying here and we'll definitely be back.

We loved our stay at Cob cottage. Such a lovely location and the cottage was perfect. Very dog friendly with a lovely big garden to run around in. Owners obviously really think about what maybe needed during the stay which made it even better :) Having the hot tub ready to jump into after a long journey up was very much appreciated! We would love tRead moreo come and stay again. We were sad to leave. Hide

Good location for visiting places of interest and walking sections of the river Ayr pathway. Dean Castle, Kilmarnock, worth visiting for significant collection of musical instruments and armour. Dumfries House and grounds should not be missed. Plenty of interest for fans of Scotlands great poet, Robert Burns.

Had a lovely weekend at the property but there was no internet access as listed. The hot tub was broken although we were allowed to use another on the estate. I had elderly parents with me and they found the property cold at this time of year. Even after heating the rooms cooled down quickly. Road can be busy and noisy. We still enjoyed our me stayRead more. Hide
