A spacious five-bedroom period property offering a comfortable location in an enviable village location close to the sandy beach, golf club and activity centre.

This beautiful historic house, sleeping 12 guests and a dog across five bedrooms, is located in a peaceful and tranquil location yet is still close to shops and pubs in the centre of Brodick as well as the beach (4 miles). The property seamlessly blends traditional and contemporary decor, giving it a real sense of grandeur and style. Less than 200 metres from a bistro and plenty more restaurants within half a mile, there’s no need to eat at home, but with a fantastic kitchen diner and cosy seating areas this home is perfect for large families that want to spend time with home comforts in a relaxing setting.

Step into the property and you’re greeted with light and airy rooms with calming neutral colours, large windows and plenty of lighting. Beautiful woods feature around the house, creating a traditional country feel and a cosy, welcoming atmosphere for the whole family to enjoy.

The kitchen/diner is a wonderful space for a sociable meal thanks to the huge table that looks out onto the garden and wooden cupboards, with the electric range making meals a doddle. A large family bathroom provides a bath with shower over and WC. Snuggle up on the sofa in front of the fire in the lounge while the kids amuse themselves in the playroom just next door; head to bed in the peaceful king-size bedroom with an en-suite shower room and a door to outside.

Up a stunning sweeping staircase, two super king-size bedrooms and one king-size room add a boutique feel to your stay; sink into a chair with a book before bed among pops of colour that add a little indulgence. The children will love having sleepovers in the family room with two sets of bunk beds – after their bath, of course! There’s a shower over the bath for quick rinses too in the upstairs bathroom.

The house benefits from plenty of garden space; the enclosed lawn at the front of the house is perfect for children and pups to play while you sit on the garden furniture with a drink. The back garden has been designed with toddlers in mind and is set on artificial grass with its own play area, so there’s something for all ages. There’s plenty of parking with space for up to five cars so the whole family can get together without a fuss, and you can get all your essentials for your holiday at the shop less than 200 metres away.

 

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

Please note there is a refundable £250 security deposit for this property payable closer to the start of your holiday.

Brodick is a thriving village and the main landing place on the Isle of Arran. This makes it ideal for families and groups of friends who want to get away from busy life while still staying within easy reach of amenities, all within attractive surroundings. There are plenty of shops and restaurants on the village's main road, but there's also an 18-hole golf course less than 150 metres away and the Fisherman's Walk coastal path that offers views of the rugged landscape. Brodick Castle (2.5 miles) houses a glorious collection of furniture, some of which dates back to the 17th century, and the garden that the Duchess of Montrose created in 1923 has been restored to offer beautiful views of the island. Find out about the history of the island at the Arran Heritage Museum which is just over half a mile away.

There are some superb beaches on the Isle of Arran; Whiting Bay (8.5 miles) has a mile-long stretch of sand with a shallow bay that's ideal for beachcombing and paddling, and you can walk 2 miles along the coast to Kingscross. Closer to home, Lamlash Bay (4 miles) is a natural harbour and you can sit in the nearby pub with al fresco drink and watch the boats bob to and fro.

Very spacious for a large group and very well equipped in the kitchen. The well stocked playroom was a welcome surprise. Good location for shops.

The house was great for us for 3 nights for a family break. The kids especially had everything they needed and could run around very safely!

Great house in a central location. Garden areas a little tired and rubble lying around. Derelict shed would be a great secure storage area for bikes etc.

Arandel is a very nice, spacious house. Very clean. We particularly liked the kitchen/diner with the big table - plenty of space to seat everyone comfortably. The location is ideal. It's only a minute's walk from one of the two supermarkets in Brodick, but because it is tucked behind another house, it is off the main street and very quiet. The BIG Read morepark which is just outside the house is great for kids to run around and play football. Plus, it's only 2 minutes away from the beach by foot. Everybody had a great time and I can't think of a single thing that I would change. We took a car over on the ferry, but everything is so close by that a car isn't really necessary. The bus stop is very close. Hide

Spacious, well maintained and well positioned. Clean and well equipped. This was a great house to be in with lots of young kids.

Eight of us including two children stayed for a week. The property is a great size and could have easily taken another four.

We thoroughly enjoyed the spacious rooms for all, the safe and private gardens, the imaginatively equipped playroom and the very sociable dining space.

Three of us even had our picture published in the Arran Banner as we took advantage of a family silk-painting artist-led session at the Art exhibition in Lochranza village hall!

From the isolated and peaceful Shetland Islands in the north to the thriving border towns and cities in the south, across wild mountains and serene lochs, and encompassing over 700 islands, Scotland’s rich and dramatic landscape simply must be seen to be appreciated. Scotland is home to the ten highest mountains in the UK – including Ben Nevis, the UK’s highest peak – and is bordered by three seas, offering epic scenery unlike any other you may have seen.

Whether you choose to explore the Highlands, lowlands or islands, lovers of the great outdoors will be thrilled by the stunning Scottish landscapes where some of the rarest UK wildlife can be glimpsed, including golden eagles, dolphins and whales. Take a road trip on the North Coast 500, Scotland’s version of Route 66, to experience the sheer beauty of the land’s wilderness or, as Scotland is the home of golf, either tee off at one of the 550 courses across parkland, heathland and links courses.

Scotland is also a land of unique culture where the people are renowned for their incredible warmth and hospitality. Experience the peaceful Isle of Lewis where Scots Gaelic is widely spoken, or immerse yourself in the cosmopolitan cities of Glasgow, Edinburgh and Aberdeen which are vibrant with thriving arts scenes, delicious restaurants and bustling nightlife. And no trip to Scotland is complete without exploring the castles and distilleries: learn about clan rivalries or bloody battles amongst 13th-century battlements or try a taste of Scotland itself during a tour of one of the 120 whisky distilleries. Pure Scottish culture in a glass.

With so many beautiful places to visit and things to experience, a break to Scotland should not be missed. Our fantastic Scottish holiday cottages will ensure a truly memorable getaway. Whether it’s a dog-friendly countryside cottage for two, or a vast and resplendent castle for the entire clan on a tranquil island, we have a holiday in Scotland to suit everyone.
