The Noddsdale Estate

The House

Noddsdale House is a category B listed, arts and crafts style country house. One, the Bell Loft, is available for guests, the other, The Granary is currently lived in by a member of the family. Bell Loft was originally the maids wing of the house while the Granary (previously known as the East wing) formed part of the farm buildings, before it was converted some time in the 1920s.

The house sits on the picturesque and peaceful Noddsdale estate, just 2 miles from the centre of Largs, on Scotland’s west coast.

The Grounds

Noddsdale Estate extends to 200 acres. The farmland is let to the local farmer who keeps sheep and in the Springtime the land really comes alive with all the lambs gambolling in the fields.

There are several woodland areas including two relatively newly planted ones which are growing slowly. Behind the house you can walk up a winding track that leads up the hill where you can enjoy the wonderful views of the Firth of Clyde and the islands of Cumbrae, Bute and Arran, over to the Kintyre Peninsula and even to the Paps of Jura on a really clear day. On the way up the track you might notice an old quarry; this was where the material for the Hydro Dam was sourced.

The Holiday Homes

Noddsdale offers two charming, upmarket self catering holiday homes, one set in our beautiful B Listed Country House and the other a semi-detached cottage in the grounds of the estate, with its own enclosed garden.

Bell Loft is full of character and wonderful antique furniture with beautiful pictures while Willow Cottage has a much more contemporary feel. Both are equipped to a very high standard. Each is a comfy, cosy place to recharge the batteries and relax. Opportunities abound to explore Ayrshire, Argyll and the islands of Arran, Bute and Cumbrae in the Firth of Clyde, or to play golf on some of the local courses.

 
 
What our guests say

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Willow Cottage. This was our first holiday with our five month-old baby, and we hugely appreciated the various appliances in the house (v. modern washing machine, tumble dryer, etc) and the extra effort Jane went to (setting up a cot for us) that helped keep things as easy and relaxing as possible. It was great to explore the various local walks and to make the most from the close proximity to Largs (fantastic 'carry oots' from Tinto tapas bar and Fish Works on the sea front). Have no doubt we'll be back.

A lovely cottage in a delightful location.

Lovely flat in beautiful grounds looking down to the sea and Scottish islands. The flat has everything you could need and Jane, the host, made us very welcome. We had a lovely time. This is a great base for visiting Great Cumbrae, the Isle of Bute and the South West of the Loch Lomond & The Trossachs National Park

Lovely location with access to the Highlands & Islands

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
