Discover the area around Noddsdale Estate

Argyll

Crarae Gardens, Inverary Castle, Inverary Jail and Loch Fyne Oyster Bar would make for a great day out, either by ferry across to Dunoon, possibly taking in the Younger Botanical Gardens or driving by Loch Lomond.

Arran

Brodick Castle, the Distillery at Loch Ranza and stocking up on presents at Arran Aromatics are all worth a visit. Closer to Largs, is the Isle of Cumbrae which has the smallest Cathedral in the country and the Garrison, recently refurbished most beautifully, houses the local museum.

Glasgow

Museums, shops, concert halls, piping centre, restaurants and venues and is only an hour away by train. Stirling Castle and the Wallace Monument are a little further away, but you could take in the Falkirk Wheel en route!

Largs

Yacht Haven, Sailing Club, Kelburn Country Centre, North Ayrshire Leisure and St Columba’s Heritage Centre, which opened in 2009 and tells the story of Sir Thomas MacDougall Brisbane who left his home, Brisbane House, to go to Australia, became Governor of New South Wales in 1821 and gave his name to the city of Brisbane. The centre also tells the story of other famous people from Largs – Sam Torrance, Gallacher and Lyle and Daniella Nardini to name a few.

 
 
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"

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.

A welcome home away from home

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"
