Alloway, South Ayrshire, Ayrshire, Scotland
Charming garden apartment in the historic conservation village of Alloway, just a stone's throw from the world famous Burns' Cottage, birthplace of Scotland's Bard and a short walk from the beaches of Ayr.

Reviewed 13 August 2017 for a stay in August 2017

We had a great relaxing stay. Property is comfortable and well-equipped, and Audrey very helpful. Oatcakes with the complimentary wine was a nice touch. Post-office/general store and "Poet's corner cafe" nearby for food. Everyone we met was pleasant and friendly. Plenty of good dog-walking nearby - Rozelle park a real gem. Alloway is within easy distance of the Ayrshire coast with good walking (coastal path and other walks) and sights. Ayr is a short(-ish) train ride from Glasgow.

Wonderful, well-equipped cottage that is located in a really picturesque spot in Alloway. Very close to Burn's Cottage and museum. Amenities nearby including public transport. Hostess was wonderful and extremely helpful.
Well worth a stay.
