Formerly the staff quarters, Bell Loft has been sympathetically and totally refurbished to provide a luxury self catering holiday home. On the first floor of Noddsdale House, it has its own private door and staircase.
The two bedrooms can either be super-kings or single beds – big and comfy for a good night’s sleep, with at least 250 thread count 100% cotton bedlinen and beautifully hand embroidered pillowcases. Pillows and duvets are 100% British Wool from The Wool Room, traceable back to the farm they came from, allergy friendly and wonderfully comforting – warm in winter and cool in summer – bliss! The curtains are interlined as well, so keep you extra cosy in winter. Each bedroom has a bathroom across the passage. The master bedroom has the larger bathroom with a separate shower. The other has a shower over the bath. Flooring is allergy friendly and there are plenty of sumptuous towels.
The comfortable Living/Dining/Kitchen area come together to create a delightful space with an open fire. There is a flat screen freeview tv, with radio and cd player, dvd and internet access, chairs and sofa-bed, a reclaimed pine dining table (extends to seat up to 8, if combining with the Granary) a small library of books, games, cards, dvds and cds.
The kitchen is rather fun with a Belfast sink, a Zodiac Quartz worktop and every utensil a cook could need and some supplies to get you started.
Central heating throughout is electric. There is a shared laundry room under the Granary with a washing machine, tumble drier, and pulleys. There is also a washing line on the drying green to catch the Ayrshire breeze if you would prefer not to use the drier! There is room for storing bikes in the laundry if required. Recycling bins are also here. There are garden benches for relaxing/reading in different shared areas of the grounds.
We stayed Mon-Fri and had a great time. We had a very warm greeting from the hosts upon arrival which was a great start. Not only is the property beautiful (the inside is a clever fusion of period feel with modern gadgetry), but there was lots nearby to keep us entertained. We spent a lot of time on the tennis courts (rackets and balls all available in the porch to help yourself to), and there is a beautiful walk up the hillside with some beautiful views.
June 2021What a gem!
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.
August 2020Second Stay
Had another lovely week at Noddsdale. A unique house in glorious grounds which are beautifully maintained. An easy walk into Largs and spectacular views. The kitchen is better stocked than mine. Xx
August 2020Wonderful to be back!
