The Cart Shed
Fabulous stay in the Card Shed. Very welcoming - lovely little Halloween treats left for the children. Also very accessible for my mum with two bedrooms being on the ground floor and only 3 small steps into the cottage. Homely, warm, clean and family friendly. Thanks!
A lovely cottage in a nice area
I would highly recommend the Cart Shed at Old Rome for holiday stay.
From the beginning we felt at home. Besides that is very spacious it is also very clean.
When we were exploring the area, we knew we would have a good night rest every day.
If there will be a next time for this area we don't know, but if there is, we would absolutely stay at this cottage.
A cottage like no other!
The Cart Shed at Old Rome is a holiday cottage that I would highly recommend! It is furnished to the highest standard and then some. The owners have really gone to a lot of effort to make it homely, spacious and comfortable with many added touches that make all the difference in the world!
Our family enjoyed our stay there so very much and we would highly recommend this cottage and it's wonderful location so close to miles of unspoiled beaches, a short drive from the Highlands, Glasgow and Edinburgh.
The Cart Shed was a cottage we were excited to return to every evening after exploring Ayrshire and beyond.
Thank you to the team at Old Rome - we will hopefully be back again one day!
