This means that the price shown for 2 or 3 nights will be as accurate as possible.

Reviewed 9 October 2016 for a stay in September 2016

We found the cottage much to our liking , well away from the town except for farm traffic but near enough Galston and Kilmarnock for shopping. Tv and mobile reception depended on weather as you are quite high up , but on clear days you have a great view down the Irvine valley to Irvine , the firth of Clyde and the Isle of Arran . We felt very much at home there

Reviewed 22 September 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Stayed at Rosebud Cottage with my wife for a few much-needed nights break after a busy time with work. The cottage was nice and peaceful (just what we wanted), spacious, well maintained. We went walks during day and just chilled out at night in front of the fire! There are great views from the garden across the countryside and while we brought some food and drink with us, there's local shops and a superstore just a couple of miles away. enjoyable trip and would recommend to others.

Management response:

Thanks for your review Chris, we're glad you enjoyed your stay and hope to welcome you back again! Jimmy.
