Good things first. Great,large cottage, with many great features. Brilliant hot tub, outdoor seating. Full sky package.
The not so good. Be careful on entrance path. I was lucky not to damage underside of car scraping on rocks coming up through worn down and loose gravel. Also there is a road running alongside cottage. This is used regularly by heavy goods lorries going to nearby quarry. Not so good in morning if you are a light sleeper. They make a lot of noise.
The decking area is large with great seating area but the bannister going around it needs upgrading. You need to be careful leaning against out as there is quite a bit of movement. Could be dangerous for kids.
All the outside window frames need a good clean. Lots of cobwebs and dead flies.
Inside house there were lots of dead flies on ceilings and walls. We were plagued with them on first night so bought lots of sprays. This helped a lot.
Finally you have to use testing strips in hot tub and then put in the correct amount of chemicals. I have never had to do this before.
We had a great time, but cottage needs better maintenance and cleaning
We thought the cottage was more rural. It is next to a road and on an incline, trucks were going passed a few times a day. I'm saying this because it would not be suitable for young children. We could not let our dog run about as the other side of the cottage was a big drop down onto a stream. We thought there was a trampoline as it was advertised, we found it later not usable down towards the stream. Also the hot tub has to be maintained by you, checking chemical balance. The cottage is lovely and Girvan is nice.
My friend booked this for 6 of us for 2 nights ! It was absolutely amazing with everything you could hope for in a holiday home as well as a hot tub!

Thank you so much all at hazelbank cottage
Keep doing what your doing..
The house itself was excellent perfectly accomidating the amount of guests we had. On arrival we met the hosts sister who ran us through all the details about the house, which we thoroughly appreciated. There were gifts left for us on arrival which a very friendly gesture. The beds were excellent and the house had everything a person would need. A place in a great area were you can really get away from the busy life and chill out. Cannot speak highly enough of Dawn and how she has treated us. Would recommend this place to anyone thinking to get a break away from it all. Amazing, would go back if possible lol.
