Description

Dating from the 18th century, this charming cottage has stunning original arched windows, and was originally the cart shed for the stables.

Set in 4 acres of woodland and close to the quaint village of Failford, this detached 18th-century cottage has stunning original arched windows and is a short walk away from the River Ayr Way. It provides a tranquil base from which to explore the beauty of Ayrshire and south west Scotland. Ayrshire offers unspoilt scenery and a varying coastline with the Ayrshire Coastal Path (a long distance walking route winding 100 miles along one of the finest panoramic coastlines in the British Isles) being easily accessed. Inland, there are gardens and castles to visit, as well as riding, racing, golf and country parks. Day trips to Ireland can be taken from Stranraer, and both Glasgow and Edinburgh are easily reached for a day out. Shop, pub and restaurant 1½ miles.

Living room with wood-burning stove, tiled floor and kitchen area. Double bedroom with door to patio. Step to twin bedroom with feature stone wall and fully tiled en-suite shower room and toilet. Bathroom with shower over Jacuzzi bath and toilet.

    Excellent base for visiting friends and family. We were not expecting such a great welcome pack! Best welcome pack by far. The place was clean and most things we required were there. we did not expect the wildlife in the garden on the first morning. We thought the owners were slowly releasing the animals/birds for us to enjoy. First we heard the woodpecker and then the lovely birds on the bird feeder, then a squirrel and then the hens came round and then there were ducks. (they seem to love the feeders). I didn't realise how peaceful it was watching birds in the garden. It was lovely the daffodils were out in the garden. The kids enjoyed playing with their dogs. Our dog loved watching out of the windows. despite the 8 hour journey time I usually don't sleep well anywhere for the first few nights. But we all slept amazingly well. The cart shed has been thought out really well with solar powered and spring water. The kids tried out the jacuzzi bath a few times loved it!!! Alex was very helpful in suggesting places for dogs and kids to visit. Dumfries grounds, Culzean country park, Ayr beach. All great!!!

    The Cart Shed is of a very high standard, tastefully furnished and a very comfortable base for sightseeing and walking. Our hosts were welcoming and ensured that everything was to our satisfaction, giving guidance on local amenities. Directions were clear and we had no difficulties in locating our accommodation. We brought our dogs with us and were able to enjoy lots of walks. This is one of the most relaxing breaks that we have ever had.

    A wee gem of a cottage. Lovely welcome pack from the owners, cosy, clean and excellent value for money. Surrounding area is beautiful, loads of scenic walks and dog friendly pubs making it ideal for those taking their furbabys on holiday with them.

    We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Cart Shed. The owners made us very welcome and provided an excellent starter pack of food goodies. The Shed was clean, comfortable, well equipped and ideally located to visit the Ayrshire coast and the Galloway forest. And it is dog friendly ! We most certainly will return.
