The first thing you'll notice about Rosemary Cottage is the views over to the Isle of Arran and Ailsa Craig. This newly refurbished 3 bedroom cottage is just 1 mile from the world famous Turnberry Golf Course. But they don't just do golf, they also offer a Spa, trout fishing, falconry, clay target and rifle shooting. Maidens has a lovely long sandy beach as well as a small harbour. The nearby Wildings is a great family run restaurant. There is also a horse riding centre in Maidens. We've provided an information pack which tell you all about the surrounding area and what's good to see and do.

Amazing cottage
Recently stayed at Rosemary Cottage and can not wait to return. Great location, 30 minutes to Ayr, 5 minutes to Turnbury and about an hour to Glasgow. The cottage was lovely and exceeded our expectations. Would recommend

Ideally Situated & Apppointed.
Rosemary Cottage is absolutely excellent. It has a wonderful view of Scotland's Ayrshire Coast, is situated in Maidens near Trump Turnberry and many other excellent local attractions to visit. The Cottage has been modernised throughout, with central heating, 3 bedrooms comprising 2 doubles of which 1 is en suited/shower hand basin & wc and a single. There is an excellent guest bathroom with full bath, over bath shower, handbasin & wc. There is a well appointed full kitchen open plan to a large lounge with seaview, wood burner, large flat screen TV with satellite programmes, music player and importantly excellent Wi Fi. Two minutes walk away is a grocers/café which is the smallest I have seen with the biggest stock I have ever seen and the best customer service I have ever had. They do all the Newspapers and the best empire biscuits I have ever tasted. The location of Maidens is easy to find just off the M77/A77. When driving be aware of the Average Speed Cameras which are openly identified. I was at the RICOH Women's British Open Golf at Trump Turnberry, the weather was atrocious (Scottish Summer) and it was great to look forward to returning to the comfort of Rosemary Cottage at the end of each day.

Beautiful cottage, breathtaking view!
This was one of the best holiday homes we've stayed in. The views were spectacular and the house was just lovely. Greeted with wine and chocolates the service was brilliant.

chillaxing - Peaceful friendly tranquillity
An extremely comfortable and well positioned cottage with good parking, situated near the shop, post office and bus stop - to Girvan with a restaurant 2 minutes’ walk away. Very pleasant garden with picnic/barbecue facilities and some amusements for children. The surrounding area is so scenic the lovely sandy beach is a short walk across the road with excellent views of the Ayrshire coast and Paddy’s Mile stone with Turnberry a few miles up the road ideal for golfers. There was plenty of living space for all of us with lounge area/kitchen, three good size bedrooms and two bathrooms there were 6 adults and 1 child with us on the trip and plenty of room for us all. The cottage has everything you need and the kitchen is better equipped than any other self-catering unit we've ever stayed in we cooked on the first night and ordered Chinese from Mabole on the second night. (We were on holiday) I would highly recommend this for a family holiday or to lease with friends we went for a very quiet relaxed break we knew the area before going not for anyone looking for night life.
