What our guests say

A perfect place to stay with every possible amenity and the best equipped kitchen possible. Wonderful holiday accommodation.

June 2021

The Granary.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Willow Cottage. This was our first holiday with our five month-old baby, and we hugely appreciated the various appliances in the house (v. modern washing machine, tumble dryer, etc) and the extra effort Jane went to (setting up a cot for us) that helped keep things as easy and relaxing as possible. It was great to explore the various local walks and to make the most from the close proximity to Largs (fantastic 'carry oots' from Tinto tapas bar and Fish Works on the sea front). Have no doubt we'll be back.

A lovely cottage in a delightful location.

After a tumultuous few months working in the NHS and our long planned for holiday cancelled, we found Willow cottage online and contacted Jane, the owner. The cottage is in a lovely setting with a gorgeous garden to enjoy the sun when it shines! Willow cottage is in a great location for exploring lots of nearby sights. The owners, Jane and Chris have thought of everything in terms of making this a home from home and the cleanliness and condition of the cottage were excellent. There were some lovely touches like flowers, milk and homemade shortbread when we arrived. Chris and Jane responded readily to any issues we had and went over and above to resolve them. The weather wasn’t always kind to us but they were! I would have no hesitation in recommending this place.
