With jaw-dropping views across the water towards Holy Isle, this homely farmhouse is the perfect bolthole for activity holidays in North Ayrshire.

This lovely, whitewashed farmhouse is in an idyllic setting right by the sea, just south of Lamlash, with stunning views from the house and garden. The sand-and-shingle seashore is easily accessible from the enclosed garden, and sleeping seven guests across four bedrooms, it is ideal for families seeking a peaceful break by the coast. This delightful property is a true home-from-home with its mix of relaxed, traditional styling and modern comforts. From the cosy lounge to the fresh, simple décor of the bedrooms, it is perfect for an idyllic family break.

Stepping up to the smart porch, you enter the house to discover the traditional lounge/dining room, with an open fire creating a lovely cosy feel, perfect for snuggling up in front of the TV in the evenings. The adjacent kitchen is smart and well-equipped, with smooth wooden worktops and a warming Rayburn to keep everyone warm on chillier evenings. Next to the kitchen is a small sunroom – a pleasant room in which to sit and relax with a book or just enjoy the view of the lush garden outside. The first of four bedrooms is also on the ground floor – a small double room with the family bathroom next door with bath over shower, hand basin and WC.

Heading upstairs to the light and airy first floor, you will find three lovely, fresh bedrooms, all of them offering beautiful views. The master double room benefits from a smart en-suite shower room. The next room has a large king-size zip-and-link bed, and the third room is a pretty single. A second bathroom with shower, hand basin and WC is also on this floor. Wandering outside, stroll around the enclosed garden or sit down with a drink at the garden table to soak up the views while the children enjoy playing on the lawn. The house is set in 7 acres of woodland and lawns to explore, along with a handful of other converted farm properties, and there is plenty of private parking. A footpath leads down to a choice of two protected bays perfect for paddling and rock pooling.

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

The location of the cottage is amazing. Down the back is practically a small private beach which is perfect for children, they can go a play by the water. The view of Holy Isle is fantastic, especially on a sunny day. One can walk to a small Whiting Bay sand beach in about 15 minutes which is secluded and not very busy ever. One has easy access to Read morethe south of the Island, Lagg distillery is 25 minutes away, Blackwaterfoot about 35. Brodick is about 20 minutes away where one can hike up Goatfell. 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.
