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.
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"
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"
Willow Cottage (Noddsdale) had everything needed for a carefree holiday/break in North Ayrshire. The cottage was equipped to the highest standard and just a couple of miles from Largs in an extremely picturesque location - ideal for exploring the coast and popping across to the islands.
