Top Traveller Review
Thank you so much for writing a very lovely review. It was so nice to welcome you all back to stay with us again.
It is great to hear that the kids love coming to stay in the cottage. We try and have plenty of toys and games to make 'happy holidays' for our little guests!
Delighted that the home-made cake was enjoyed on your outdoor picnics. The weather was terrific for your stay.
We hope to see you all again sometime soon.

We actually stayed in the cottage next to ' The Byre'. It caters for all of our needs, of a family of five with three children under the age of 5. The cottage has all the necessary mod cons. It is clean, tidy, very spacious and homely. The owners also throw in a few personal touches such as home baked cakes, which are delicious and were a treat for the many picnics that we had with the children, and also providing toys for the children to play inside and outside. This was our second visit to the cottage. We love this cottage and the children even more so that they now refer to the cottage as their 'holiday home'. It's a beautiful cottage in a great location. We are looking forward to our next stay.
Excellent standard and homely property
We enjoyed our stay in the Byre cottage very much. The facilities are excellent and the extra details of toys, books and home made cake were much appreciated . Location good for Glasgow and Clyde coast.
Another Fantastic Stay at The Byre
This has been our 4th stay at The Byre. We just keep coming back to this wonderful cottage. It is in the perfect, quiet location for all that Ayrshire has to offer but just a 10 minute drive to the beach and within walking distance to a lovely country pub and restaurant.
The property is always cleaned and maintained to the highest standard with all the equipment and facilities that you would want for a self catering holiday. The bedrooms are spacious with plenty of storage and the kitchen and living room have plenty of room for a family of 6.
We have found the owner to be very friendly and accommodating. She will text us to let us know as soon as the cottage is ready for us which is very helpful after a long transatlantic flight. Also the homemade cake and little treats that are left are a lovely touch.
We would highly recommend this accommodation, great value!!
