What our guests say

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!

"Fantastic stay at Willow Cottage"

Everything from the booking went seamlessly. The cottage was beautifully presented - tasteful and new. Super comfortable!

I would certainly stay here again!

Willow Cottage and surrounding area was a welcome break away from home, especially after lockdown began to be lifted.

Jane and Chris are excellent hosts and catered for all our needs. The home is set up so as to not want for anything away from home, the house and setting had everything we needed, except good weather which is never a guarantee. A nice touch too was the home-baking on arrival, Jane even catered for the nut allergy in the family. They could not be any more attentive.

The house is set in lovely greenery and was great to have the Tennis Court and walks on tap in the surrounding area, with amazing views towards Cumbrae and Bute. A short walk or drive into Largs is so easy too. And its wonderful to come back to the house after a day exploring to the peace and quiet.

As a family of 5 adults, we had a terrific time.

Thank you.
