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

Great location, open fire and stunning views. Friendly and uncomplicated hosts - overall a successful work stay.

March 2022

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 is very well equipped and comfortable. It’s in a super location, close to the town of Largs yet very peaceful. There’s excellent walking straight from the front door. We had a most relaxing week there and the lovely weather was a huge bonus. Jane made us feel very welcome. We will definitely be back.
