Situated next to a working farm, this delightful property makes a fantastic holiday retreat for a couple or family seeking a tranquil getaway in a quiet part of the beautiful Isle of Arran.

Shirk your responsibilities for a while and whisk your family and friends away for a break they will never forget at this four-bedroom homestay on the wonderful Isle of Arran. Awash with wild charm, this beautiful part of the world is the perfect place to escape the rhythm of everyday life for a while, and this spacious family home is the ideal base from which to do it. From its children’s play area to the marshmallow sofas to the verdant country views and abundance of walks on its doorstep, there is something for everyone to enjoy.

 

A traditional farmhouse, this property is a welcoming family home at its core. Plonk yourself on the sofa in the lounge to stretch out relaxed mornings at home and switch on the TV to catch up on the news. If you would like to stay resolutely in your bubble, swap the remote for a gripping novel and bury yourself between the pages for a while before heading into the kitchen for scran. Spacious, well-equipped and uncluttered, you will find everything you could need in the kitchen and more, complete with a long, family-sized dining table with chairs. From hearty breakfasts with mountains of toast and tea to wholesome suppers with dollops of gravy-covered tatties and neeps, you can look forward to quality family time gathered around plates of steaming food. Cosy throughout the year, this property is also a welcome retreat on rainy days. Make use of the lounge for board games and books or pour into the games room for belly-aching contests of snooker and table tennis.

 

When the weather clears up, head outside for long walks in the countryside before coming home to run yourself a bubble-topped bath, deliciously soothing for tired muscles. When the sun eventually sinks beyond the horizon, you can tread the stairs to the first floor where four bedrooms await for deep and easy sleep, full of dreams of tomorrow’s adventures.

 

Benefitting from an enclosed garden as well as its rural location, your little ones will have a blast playing games of fetch and frisbee on the soft grass. When the kids tear off to clamber on the children’s climbing frame with attached slide for extra giggles, the grown-ups can indulge in a homemade lemonade outside. If you do fancy exploring further afield, the cottage has private parking available so you can come and go as you please.

 

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

Known as ‘Scotland in miniature’, the Isle of Arran has a spectacularly diverse landscape that ranges from dramatic coastline and rugged mountains to softer expanses of luscious greenery and tranquil countryside. The southern tip of the isle is best known for wildlife, scenic walks and rich history. The village of Blackwaterfoot 8.5 miles away, is an exciting place to visit with mysterious caves, or perhaps you could explore the ruins of Kildonan Castle 5 miles away. Change pace with a visit to the vibrant town of Brodick 16 miles away, trying your hand at a new sport or craft, browsing the pretty shops, or tucking into a delicious lunch at a local restaurant.

This is traditional farmhouse and it was amazing to stay in. A good walk down to the beach and the games room provided us plenty of amusement at night. Although this property is surrounded by a working farm it was quiet and peaceful and we really enjoyed having sheep and cattle in nearby fields. If your looking for peaceful seclusion then you'll fiRead morend it here Hide

Great garden for the kids. Lots of space inside too, especially welcome on rainy days. Very well equipped kitchen. Altogether the best house weve stayed in on Arran.

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.
