About the property

Cottage in Maidens, Ayr - Peaceful Location, Just Yards From The Beach.

The first thing you'll notice about Rosemary Cottage is the views over to the Isle of Arran and Ailsa Craig. This newly refurbished 3 bedroom cottage is just 1 mile from the world famous Turnberry Golf Course. But they don't just do golf, they also offer a Spa, trout fishing, falconry, clay target and rifle shooting. Maidens has a lovely long sandy beach as well as a small harbour. The nearby Wildings is a great family run restaurant. There is also a horse riding centre in Maidens. We've provided an information pack which tell you all about the surrounding area and what's good to see and do.

Cosy, spacious, bright cottage - stunning beach and restaurant only seconds away :) will be back!

  • 5 of 5

This was a fantastic cottage to stay in. We are just back from a 5 day stay with our two dogs and we all had a ball.

There was a vestibule for the dogs to dry off in after our daily walks along the gorgeous beach. There is also a park/ field accessible from the enclosed back garden which was great for the dogs.

The living room views were great, beds comfortable and the whole place clean.

Walking access to the amazing Wildings restaurant made our stay all the more worthwhile and memorable.

A great place to chill out and relax but also access to amenities nearby if want a day out.

I'd definitely recommend to friends and plan on returning.

Perfect Seaside Holiday Cottage

  • 5 of 5

Gorgeous cottage, well laid out and nicely furnished/decorated. Everything anyone could need for self-catering holiday is provided. Large rear garden very useful for us with our small dog, no need to put him on the lead every time he needed a wee! We were already familiar with the area so knew what to expect - stunning scenery, a friendly welcome and plenty of clean beach to enjoy. We hope to make regular return trips in future. Can definitely recommend this holiday cottage :)

Great place to stay for the whole family

  • 5 of 5

We booked the cottage as we were going to a wedding at Turnberry Golf resort. Communication was fantastic with the owner Gavin and any texts that we sent were answered promptly. Ann was our "go to" lady and was fantastic and really made us feel welcome. Our party included 2 couples, a grandparent, a toddler and a dog. The cottage was big enough that we were never on top of each other and what really stood out was that the cottage provided everything that we needed and felt like a home not just a holiday let. I cannot recommend this cottage enough, beautiful home in a stunning location. What more could you want?!!!!
