The Noddsdale Estate

The House

Noddsdale House is a category B listed, arts and crafts style country house, home to two luxury guest wings, Bell Loft and the Granary. 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 three charming, upmarket self catering holiday homes, two set in our beautiful B Listed Country House and the third a semi-detached cottage in the grounds of the estate, with its own enclosed garden.

Bell Loft and Granary are full of character and wonderful antique furniture with beautiful pictures while Willow Cottage has a much more contemporary feel. All 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

After a tumultuous few months working in the NHS and our long planned for holiday cancelled, we found Willow cottage online and contacted Jane, the owner. The cottage is in a lovely setting with a gorgeous garden to enjoy the sun when it shines! Willow cottage is in a great location for exploring lots of nearby sights. The owners, Jane and Chris have thought of everything in terms of making this a home from home and the cleanliness and condition of the cottage were excellent. There were some lovely touches like flowers, milk and homemade shortbread when we arrived. Chris and Jane responded readily to any issues we had and went over and above to resolve them. The weather wasn’t always kind to us but they were! I would have no hesitation in recommending this place.

Just wonderful

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"

Having been frequent guests in the Granary at Noddsdale over many years, we chose the Bell Loft this year. As we fully expected, it was presented to the same extremely high standards that we have come to expect at Noddsdale and we were not disappointed. The entire apartment is a delight, beautifully maintained, spotlessly clean, fully equipped and a delight to stay in. We are already planning our return to Noddsdale.
