Property code: 77585

Lovingly refurbished by the owners, this 200-year-old farmhouse is now a stunning family home that's perfect for memorable holidays on the idyllic Isle of Arran.

This beautifully-presented former farmhouse is a fantastic family retreat on the stunning Isle of Arran. Dating back 200 years, the owners have carefully modernised its interior to create spacious and stylish three-bedroom accommodation with plenty of original charm retained. Spend your days exploring the island with family and four-legged friends, taking in countryside, coastline and peaks before returning to a cosy evening in beside the roaring wood burner or an al fresco meal in the large lawn garden.

A beautiful blend of old and new, this period home boasts wooden flooring, an original fireplace, tongue and groove panelling and fresh contemporary decor to suit all tastes. Whip up delicious family meals in the fantastic kitchen/diner, which contains shaker-style units, oak worktops and plenty of storage and equipment for making yourselves at home. While light meals and snacks can be enjoyed at the small table in the kitchen, evening meals are best shared in the dining room, where you will also find a sofa, TV and wood burner for creating a cosy atmosphere at mealtimes. Afterwards, retreat to the welcoming lounge, with its wooden flooring, oriental rug and wood burner-effect gas fire. Curl up with a good book or make the most of the TV/DVD available. Upstairs, three beautifully appointed bedrooms have been decorated in calming muted tones reminiscent of a boutique hotel.

Stepping outside, a sunny patio area with table, chairs and a parasol is the perfect spot for al fresco dining at the end of a busy day. This area leads onto a large lawn that’s perfect for energetic children and dogs and backs onto rolling fields. There is off-road parking for two cars.

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

One of a handful of properties on the Glen Rosa track, this cottage enjoys a spectacular setting with views of the sea, countryside and Goatfell. Stroll into the centre of Brodick (2.5 miles) to stock up on supplies at the supermarket, enjoy a tasty meal out at one of its pubs or cafes, or explore its historic castle, which is surrounded by beautiful gardens. Keen walkers should most definitely take on the mighty Goatfell (6 miles), Arran’s tallest peak, to be rewarded by breath-taking views from the top. Or, if you would rather stay at sea level, follow the Arran Coastal Way to neighbouring Lamlash (5.5 miles) in the south or Corrie (6.5 miles) to the north. From Lamlash, regular boats leave for Holy Isle, a 3-kilometre stretch of land with a sacred spiritual heritage that stretches back to the 6th century. Other nearby attractions include the Isle of Arran Distillery (13.5 miles), Machrie Moor Standing Stones (11.5 miles) and Arran Outdoor Centre (6.5 miles).

A wonderful cottage in a wonderful spot. Felt like a real home from home. American style fridge freezer, books/DVDs/cards/games, great WiFi/ Flasks/head torch etc. Very thoughtful touches. Great to come back to after a day out or indeed to spend a relaxing day inside. Colin was a great help, very speedy response to queries.

Thus is a fabulous cottage in a wonderful location. You can walk from the house into Brodick and also up the beautiful Glenrosa valley into the mountains. The house is lovely to stay in, with character and comfort. I would definitely recommend this cottage and would love to return.

Lovely cottage for a family break. Clean, comfortable and in a great location. The children enjoyed the garden and seeing the horses in the back field (keeping a respectful distance). There is a wonderful selection of children's books to keep them entertained on a rainy day.

Lovely cottage in our favourite glen but as previously stated sofas and armchair need a deep clean as theyre very grubby. My main comment is please BEWARE of the horses in the back field. I received a nasty bite on the breast from the biggest one, resulting in severe bruising (5 diameter black bruise) and swelling. It was agony and very frighteningRead more. Should be a warning sign?!! Beautiful gardens for children but please, please be careful with them getting close to the horses. Hide

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.
