The all weather tennis court in the garden at Noddsdale is available most of the time – bring your own racquets and balls if possible. Hire bicycles and pedal 11 miles around the Isle of Cumbrae, or go over the top if feeling energetic!

Other Activities

Try your hand at Off Road Driving. Or Indoor Dry Ski at Snow Factor, Braehead near Glasgow airport. RSPB Lochwinnoch Nature Reserve is only 20 minutes away from Noddsdale House by car.

Water Activities

Cumbrae Voyages Adventure run RIBs to see local wildlife at sea and the National Watersports Centre on Cumbrae run various courses for sailors and windsurfers. The Clyde is also a popular Diving spot. Swim indoors at the Vikingar, Largs or outdoors at the heated salt water filled pool in Gourock (May to September!)

 
 
What our guests say

This was our second stay at Noddsdale, but our first stay in the Bell Loft. Like the Granary, the Bell Loft is spacious and very well-equipped for our family of three. Highlights are 2 bathrooms in the Bell Loft, but a superb view of Great Cumbrae from the Granary. Mrs Evans is delightful to deal with: always very friendly and thoughtful.

Second Stay

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.

Lovely flat in beautiful grounds looking down to the sea and Scottish islands. The flat has everything you could need and Jane, the host, made us very welcome. We had a lovely time. This is a great base for visiting Great Cumbrae, the Isle of Bute and the South West of the Loch Lomond & The Trossachs National Park
