This beautifully appointed single storey cottage with its delightful sea and countryside views is over 100 years old and has lovely feature stone walls reflecting its history. As its name suggests, Gardener’s Cottage was the former residence of the gardener of Ardmillan Castle located just over a couple of miles from Girvan in Ayrhsire. 400 years ago the castle was described thus, “The Castle of Ardmillan looked like a palace with its deep cut ditch, its large courtyard, its capacities for siege-standing, its early pears and apples.”  Originally a fishing port, Girvan is now a small seaside resort and during the summer it is possible to sail around local landmarks on the lovely paddle steamer, the Waverley.

    This was one of the most well equipped cottages we have staid in. It was like home from home. The underfloor heating was a bonus as the weather turned a little cold. It was lovely to walk in and the cottage was lovely and warm and our two dogs loved it also. A lovely secure garden at the back for the dogs to play in. We will definitely book again.

    Fabulous cottage, we didn't want to leave. So cosy and comfortable and beautifully decorated. Great location for walks with the dog, the beach is just across the road and there is also a good walk up in the hills behind the cottage. The owner, Anne, is very friendly and she supplied us with freshly laid eggs which were delicious. I enjoyed meeting her dogs, cats and sheep. There are lots of books and the full Sky package was a great bonus on the one day when it rained. We are most definitely planning on returning.
