Converted in the 1920s, from farm buildings, the Granary (formerly known as the East Wing), was the traditional guest wing for Noddsdale House. It has been a holiday destination for many happy customers for over 30 years and is most attractive and unusual with a pitched wooden ceiling in the sitting room.
The self contained apartment has its own front door up 10 outside steps and is on the first floor of Noddsdale House above the old Laundry and Music Room.
The hall is spacious and welcoming. (Room for a single luxury folding bed if required). The kitchen and dining area are off the hall and seats 4 people comfortably. It is very well appointed.
The bedroom sleeps 2 in either a superking or 2 single beds and all bedlinen is 100% cotton with a high thread count, making it really comfortable. Duvets and pillows are 100% British Wool from The Wool Room, traceable back to the farm from whence the wool came. Totally natural and allergy friendly making for a wonderful sleeping experience – warm in winter and cool in the summer – bliss! The bathroom is next door and has a bath with shower over, basin and wc. There are plenty of towels.
The sitting room has a double sofa bed as well as an additional sofa and comfy chairs. There is a flat screen freeview TV, Video, DVD, internet access, CD Player and radio and games, cards and a small library of books as well as dvds and cds.
Heating is by electricity and is included in the price. 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 for those who prefer to catch the Ayrshire breeze. There is room for bike storage in the laundry too. There are garden benches around the shared grounds for admiring the view, reading or just taking time out.
The apartment is relatively large, light and furnished to a high quality. There is ample space to store clothes and food. The kitchen is exceptionally well equipped, and it is clear that a lot of thought has gone into what guests might actually need. The views from the living room are lovely. The hosts are very friendly and helpful. There are good walks nearby and it is an excellent base for exploring the region especially as as the Isles of Arran and Bute are near.An outstanding property
What a wonderful stay we had at Noddsdale Estate! Every aspect of our experience could not be bettered - from the friendliness and welcome of our hosts to the accommodation and its location. Even the weather worked in our favour, affording us a cosy day in by a log fire because of rough weather after we had enjoyed days of hill walking in sunshine. The fire was already laid for us in readiness! Thank you.
May 2021Lovely location for the loosening of the lockdown leash
We would highly recommend The Granary - it's certainly one of the best self-catering properties we've ever stayed in. Spacious, extremely comfortable, beautifully furnished and very well-equipped. The main living room is fantastic, and I must mention the bed, which was possibly the most comfy I've ever slept in! It's the sort of place you'd happily (as we did!!) spend rainy days just relaxing, reading and enjoying the peace and lovely views.
Location is great - you feel away from it all yet it's only a short drive into Largs.Really Lovely
