    We've had a great holiday in The Byre! It is equipped really well with everything you could possibly need, there's even a BBQ for those sunny days. The location is lovely with fantastic views of Ailsa Craig and easy access down to all of the nearby towns. Sheila who owns the farm is very welcoming and has some great tips on things to see and do. Our 3 year old loved helping her to feed the cows and would have done it everyday. We really wished we'd booked 2 weeks instead of 1!

    The perfect holiday for our 3 year-old son who absolutely loved visiting a work farm every day. The highlight for him was helping Farmer Sheila feed the new born calves. The location was perfect as a base for days out and there's plenty of brilliant things to do & places to visit nearby. Even though on a farm there was no noise at all at the cottage. Sheila & family couldn't do enough for us. Would highly recommend.

    I have given all of the above categories 10 out of 10. That is because our experience at The Byre was brilliant! A lot of that can be put down to the fact that the owners were amazing and made a really good holiday great. ( finding out about real farm life) I would really recommend a stay at The Byre!

    What an amazing cottage. Beautifully decorated and equipped to a very good standard. The views from any window are simply breathtaking. If you don't like animals or mud then this location may not be for you but we had a wonderful time.
