Get away from it all in this sleek and stylish lodge with open-plan living, a hot tub and panoramic sea views. Located in the heart of Ayrshire, this well-furnished property makes a fantastic base for couples or solo travellers to enjoy enchanting countryside trails, with numerous rural tracks and trails available from your doorstep.

This thoughtfully decorated lodge has been beautifully furnished to offer a fabulous bolthole, perfect for loosening up at the end of a memorable day. The property has been stylishly configured, with the sofa pointing towards stunning vistas, French doors opening onto the decking, and an open-plan layout to keep the conversation flowing with your guest.

A few steps lead to the decking area and through French doors into the accommodation. Pour a glass of bubbles in the open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner and park yourselves on the large, comfortable sofa to admire your rural views. You can share a romantic meal for two around the quaint dining table, and the bespoke kitchen is fully furnished with everything you may need during your stay, including a fridge/freezer, a gas hob and an oven. Tired eyes will be thankful for the pillowy double bed, where you can also admire the panoramic views whilst snuggled under the duvet. In the morning, enjoy a leisurely start to the day by having a cup of tea in bed and then freshening up in the shower room, ready for an active afternoon.

Outside, the decked area provides a sanctuary of calming views and nothing but the sound of birdsong to accompany you. Here, you will find the private wood-fired hot tub and a charming seating area with a BBQ. This is an ideal spot for admiring the unspoiled views of Ailsa Craig and the Isle of Arran or for spotting constellations when it drops dark. There is parking for two cars.

There is a lot of spectacular scenery in this area of Scotland, either on foot or by bike. From the property, mosey around the 220-acre grounds of the Blair Estate (1.5 miles), where you'll be met with ample walks, ancient woodland and manicured flowerbeds. Alternatively, travel back through time and walk the same halls as King William I by peaking inside Blair Castle. With over 900 years of rich heritage to explore, the castle boasts one of Scotland's oldest continually inhabited mansions, with many incredible rooms to tour. Further afield, Kelburn Castle (13.5 miles) and Culzean Castle and Country Park (33 miles) are open to visitors daily and provide hours of amazement.

There are several world-class championship courses for golfers, including Royal Troon and Prestwick Golf Club, which both sit within 16 miles of the accommodation. Slower afternoons come easy at the seaside town of Largs (11 miles), which has a charming Victorian promenade and a choice of ice cream parlours and unique souvenir shops. To the south of the town, stroll down to Largs Yacht Haven, the largest marina in Scotland, to enjoy watching the boats bob in and out of the harbour.

The lively city of Glasgow is 25 miles away, or a 25-minute train journey from the nearest station of Dalry (2 miles). Find Glasgow's music scene on a city walking tour, uncover treasures at its art galleries and museums, follow the mural trail around the city centre or venture into its cathedral to admire its imposing medieval interiors.

We were warmly welcomed by the host, and helped out throughout the week with a positive attitude everytime. Gorgeous little cabin, very cosy and perfect for a quiet time away. The hot tub is just amazing, as you can sit there with a drink in hand on the hill with the lovely views in front of you.
