I'll let our guests describe us as we believe they are our best references.
It was lovely to read a special message from children who stayed at the House who were given free rein in the veg garden! "Thank you for the strawberries they were absolutely delicious."
"A great place to be at peace and feel relaxed. We’ve had a very happy time and appreciate the warm welcome we’ve had. Hope to be back soon."
"Thank you for sharing your beautiful home with us."
"Karen & Scott thank you so much for your kindness."
"Your hospitality put everyone at ease and for all of us this helped make it a great and memorable week."
"Thanks for a lovely stay."
"Many thanks Karen for making our visit so enjoyable."
"Thank you for welcoming us so kindly. What great memories we will have."
We just fell in love with this house! House of Craigie is the most wonderful, historic house and pocket sized country estate.
After extensive renovation during which we added an indoor swimming pool it is always a delight to welcome guests and see them fall in love with the house and gardens too.
The House is a perfect self catering holiday house for large groups whether for a special family occasion or a friends get-together.
Breathtaking views to the sea, Ailsa Craig and Arran. Rural yet we're close to all the facilities and amenities in Ayrshire when we can tear ourselves away, particularly good for a walk on the beach at Troon and fish and chips! Staying here between the coast and Glasgow is ideal and a night at the theatre or a concert in town is perfectly do-able via the A77/M77. The other great thing about the location, (one of us is from further north where the midges are a plague) is that here the ubiquitous, Highland midge is a very rare visitor so we can enjoy the sunsets sitting out in the garden unbuzzed! An ideal Scottish country hideaway!
Thank you very much for the wonderful stay at House of Craigie, a good time was had by all.
You have a beautiful home, it was a great time- only downside was the weather, but when can you rely on Scottish weather?
Rarely do our family all have time for a break together so our time at Craigie was special and made memorable by the beautiful house, wonderful views and Karen and Scott the welcoming owners who made sure we didn't miss any local highlights, Culzean Castle and its grounds are special indeed! Young and old enjoyed the spacious sitting rooms in the house, the "oldies" relaxed in the plush drawing room while the rest watched TV or played table tennis in the games room. The girls so enjoyed having "spa" time in the lovely indoor pool. The property was spotlessly clean with beautiful furnishings. It was a real privilege to enjoy this comfortable family home. Highly recommended - hopefully we will have a return holiday in the near future.
Our stay was made quite uncomfortable after being on the receiving end of the male owners aggression on the second day of our visit. The couple who own the property live in one of the cottages next door and keep a very close eye on your visit and will make it very clear if they are not happy with noise levels etc. Even locking a door providing quick access to the cottages because the noise was disturbing the owners office work. He was also very angry at the noise of the children in the courtyard and made it clear how annoyed he was having to lock his tool sheds because of them, which I would assume should be secure anyway. Alarm bells should have round when on arriving we were told of the bad behaviour of other guests including the children of a QC visiting recently and the reps from Rolex.
The perfect house. Absolutely stunning property with really tastefully decorated & comfortable period rooms inside plus lots of modern equipment, games rooms & pool etc. Also the hosts are incredibly friendly and easy going. The attached cottages are of the same level as the house too, if not higher.
We had a great weekend at The House of Craigie, which is very easy to get to - only a 35 minute drive from Glasgow airport. The friendly owners greeted us on arrival, and gave us a tour of the lovely house and grounds and some tips as to the best walks and shooting in the area. The property was perfectly clean and well-maintained, with brilliant facilities for a large group - the indoor pool and table tennis table were our favourites. The kitchen was well stocked and it was great to have an AGA.
We'd highly recommend staying in this house for a weekend or longer, and we're looking forward to coming back soon!
I would have to say it has been without a doubt the best big group accommodation I have found for our family over the years.
It was a pleasure dealing with Karen and Scott and nothing was too much trouble.
The house itself was fabulous for a large group with plenty space to spread out and very homely and cosy.
Addition of pool and games room were really excellent for our big family group.
We stayed at the House of Craigie for my sister's hen night. It was fantastic, just exactly what we were looking for! It was cosy, clean, impressive and inviting and we would have loved to stay for longer! The facilities were great; comfy beds, open fires, table tennis, pool, books and games in abundance and of course the swimming pool!
Karen was incredibly welcoming and may us feel very relaxed. I would highly recommend the House of Craigie - we couldn't stop talking about it when we got home!!
