Charming stable block apartments, close to Victorian manor house

Set in 15-acres beautiful grounds with lawned areas

Set close to Largs on the Firth of Clyde, these charming holiday apartments have been carefully converted from the stable block of a delightful Victorian manor house, which is located some 200 yards away along a tree-lined drive. Offering every contemporary comfort and convenience, enjoy the relaxing ambience of the scenic setting. You can relax amid 15 acres of landscaped grounds, or in the lawned areas, which are surrounded by woodland. There are wonderful views of the hills and islands of the Firth of Clyde, and plenty of outdoor activities to enjoy. There are two golf courses, trout farm fishing, sailing, nature trails and pony trekking, as well as cruises aboard the famous ’Waverley’ paddle steamer. In Largs, 2 miles, you will find the Kelburn Country Centre and Vikingar - an exciting all-weather leisure centre, with a swimming pool, 500-seat theatre and children’s soft play area. There is also a choice of small shops, a supermarket, post office, pubs and a station. Although an attractive seaside resort now, Largs like much of this area has enjoyed an interesting history - in 1263 it was where the Norse fleet were defeated. From Largs take a ferry to Great Cumbrae Island and visit the aquarium, near Keppel Pier, and the ’Cathedral of the Isles’ on the sandy bay at Millport. The Cumbraes are not the only isles within easy reach. Go from Wemyss Bay across the waters to Bute, or drive south to Ardrossen and arrive in the exceptionally mild island of Arran. Arran is home to a wealth of places to visit, including the National Trust for Scotland owned Goatfell, 2,866 ft, with its magnificent views from the Clyde coast to the Hebrides and Northern Ireland. Golf enthusiasts will enjoy making the trip here, as Arran has 6 courses in which to shoot a round. Manor Park is well-placed for anyone looking to plan a diverse holiday itinerary. Whether you take to the sea or prefer to head inland, there is much to fill the days. Within an hour’s drive you can reach Loch Lomond, Burns country and Glasgow, with Edinburgh just a little further. Pub 2½ miles.

The location of this property is just perfect. We walked to Largs as well as visited several times in the car as it has all the amenities needed including a good size Morrisons, a Wetherspoons for a quick and easy dinner with the kids, Nardini's for amazing ice creams as well as some cute little shops to browse. If you wander along the prom there's the outdoor gym area right at the far end and it's a nice little saunter down there and back. Or take the ferry over to Cumbrae and explore the island. Just a couple of miles in the other direction is Wemyss Bay where we got a ferry over to the Isle of Bute and visited some gorgeous unspoilt bays or you can get the train from there right into the middle of Glasgow for a day out. The accommodation itself is very dated, the carpets and soft furnishings look like they have been there since the 1980s and could really do with replacing - just to being it up to date a bit. And having stayed in lots of holiday cottages before, it was disappointing not to have a pint of milk in the fridge for a brew after our 7 hour journey and perhaps some soap in the bathroom? Those added touches are minimal but make a huge difference. That said, the bed linen and towels were clean as was the property itself. We only really ate breakfast in but the cooking facilities were adequate and the fridge a good size for all our picnic food. The setting of the property is stunning and it is just a shame that it has been allowed to get so run down. As you approach the accommodation the drive way is so full of potholes you risk losing your car down there and we counted three abandoned cars (with flat tyres and moss growing on the roof tops) along with a derelict boat. I'm not sure why you would want to spoil such a stunning location by creating a mini scrapyard in the approach? All in all, don't expect luxury but it's clean and with adequate room for a family of five (two adults and three kids - two teens and a younger one) and not forgetting it's a great location to base yourself. Final point - no WiFi and poor mobile reception which, while fine with me frustrated the kids and it would make for an easier life if there was WiFi available.

We have just had a marvellous week in the 6 person apartment. It is basic but the location and serenity makes up for this. It is so close to so many good places to visit and we were blessed with good weather except for one wet day when we went to the Waterside Greenock Cinema instead. Never been to this coast of Scotland before. Magical.
