What our guests say

Our family visited Scotland for the first time this September and we were recommended to stay at Noddsdale. As there were 5 of us we stayed in Bell Loft which had a lovely homey ambiance with the welcoming homemade shortbread and flowers. Loved sitting around the fireplace and relaxing.

Beautiful rooms, décor and grounds of the estate which we hiked up in the morning to see beautiful views of Largs. Great base for exploring the area.

"Amazing stay in Bell Loft"

We would highly recommend The Granary - it's certainly one of the best self-catering properties we've ever stayed in. Spacious, extremely comfortable, beautifully furnished and very well-equipped. The main living room is fantastic, and I must mention the bed, which was possibly the most comfy I've ever slept in! It's the sort of place you'd happily (as we did!!) spend rainy days just relaxing, reading and enjoying the peace and lovely views.

Location is great - you feel away from it all yet it's only a short drive into Largs.

"Really Lovely"

We really enjoyed our stay at Willow Cottage. The Cottage is a very high standard and has everything you could possibly need on holiday. We thoroughly enjoyed exploring the local area as there is lots to see and do. We also loved the local walks and enjoyed playing tennis on the courts. Many thanks to Jane and Chris for a great holiday, we hope to return for another visit!
