My fiancé and I stayed at Alloway cottage for a long weekend, from Friday to Monday, with our puppy. The location is superb and the cottage itself is surrounded by fields, you can sit for ages and just watch the animals outside the windows. The cottage's neighbours are 2 very friendly horses who were happy to come over for some attention. Even though the cottage is surrounded by fields it isn't too far from things and Ayr town centre was only a 5 minute or so drive. There was also lots of beaches and walkways nearby which were great for walking the dog.
The cottage itself was very cosy and homely. It had everything you would ever need to enjoy your stay. The kitchen is fully equipped so we were able to make all of our own meals and towels were provided too. We were also able to access the wifi which was great so we could keep friends and family updated on our stay.
We really enjoyed our stay at the cottage and especially for the price we paid. It is great value for money and we'd definitely recommend it to family and friends.
We went as a family 2 teenage kids 2 adults and 1 dog. There is something for everyone. The cottage has been tastefully decorated and exceptionally equipped. We would recommend this to anyone. Lovely stay. Thank you very much.
The cottage was really lovely and felt very homely. There was everything you could need and the owner was very friendly and quick to respond to questions.
The cottage is semi-detached in a lovely location and well equipped. However, we were very disappointed in the heating/hot water system. The heating only seemed to operate by pushing a button every 2 hours to keep it on. in our opinion, the cottage would benefit from an electric shower as there was a severe shortage of hot water when the four of us wanted a hot shower in succession, and i'd be very surprised if you could manage a full bath of hot water. Depending on the time of year, I would suggest bringing your own fire lighters and matches with you to start the fire in the long burner.
