It was year year we stayed at Darven cottage. Two adults and two springers. The owner could not have made us feel more at home. All the benefits of self catering (free use of the house) but with your beds made! Great location. Clean rooms etc. Outstanding value.

I booked to go back to Arran as a birthday treat for my wife as we have stayed before. We were met as old friends rather than guests by David our host. The room was immaculate and the bathroom fantastic with shower and relaxing bath. The double room has lovely views to wake up to. Having booked for a meal...

Very restful stay, the beach outside is fantastic for walking, the coastal trail ideal for running. David and Claire, the owners, and their canine companions made us feel really at home and cooked delicious breakfast, black pudding a real highlight! When we visited in October, in the nippy evenings, the woodburning stove was lovely. Thanks!

Stayed 2 nights in September. A wonderful taste of an idyllic Scottish island lifestyle: eggs from the cottage chickens for breakfast, red squirrel on the bird feeder, and a friendly welcome home from the 2 labradors. Great setting on the shore, close to the pub and the walk into Glen Sannox. David, the owner, couldn't have been more helpful and...

David is a very accomplished and passionate chef and the extra touches were much appreciated. Initially we...

We arranged to stay with David and Claire about a month before the August bank-holiday weekend and even from the friendly banter we enjoyed with David via email, we knew that we were going to love Darven Cottage. Darven Cottage has all the great things you hope to find in a B&B (fresh smelling linens, sparkling bathrooms, great breakfasts of...

My family and I spent two wonderful nights at Darven Cottage. We received the warmest reception from David who treated us not like clients but family. When we looked out the window of his living room we saw, that he had a California state flag flying in our honor. We were very touched by this extra special gesture . My...

A fabulous welcome from people who actually enjoy running a B&B. Darven's location is superb - immediate access to the beach and the coastal footpath - and the cottage itself is set in a lovely garden. Rooms are fine, clean, etc., but what sets this place part is the human touch (including the fabulous cooking). We especially needed a dog-friendly...
