“Thoroughly enjoyed our stay. No complaints whatsoever and we plan to return when next in the area. Cracking little air bnb. Very comfortable, bed was very comfortable and we slept very well. Everything exceptionally clean and cosy situated in a beautiful, quiet village area with incredibly helpful and pleasant host, close to train station and shops etc. What we loved especially was all the extra touches such as maps of the area, tourist type information, books for walking routes and everything you need in the property (as is in description) which we felt was some nice little extras compared to other air bnb’s we have visited. Great!”
Dunlop is only 1/2 hour drive to some of Ayrshires top golf courses. The train takes less than 30 mins to Glasgow city centre. The village has a pub, a community cafe(open for lunch on Thursdays, Fridays and 1st Saturday of the month). A newsagent, post office/ shop and an Artisan Bakery ( open Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday.) The nearest supermarket is 10 mins. drive away.
“David and Fiona's cottage is lovely, we stayed there for three nights. It is as beautiful as on the pictures. Dunlop is a fairly small and quiet village, but it's only half an hour by train to Glasgow. We also visited Loch Lomond which is slightly over one hour by car. David and Fiona are great hosts. We definitely recommend staying there.”
The Retreat is a sympathically converted field shelter perched on the side of the hill above our farm. It commands spectacular views of the Ayrshire countryside below it which you can enjoy from the comfort of your bed or that of the private hot tub outside. The property is ideally located to make the most of the many world famous golf courses in the area as well the numerous beaches and the dramatic coastline of the west coast of Scotland. * COVID 19 * Please see "Other Things to Note".
“The Retreat is a fantastic place to stay if you’re looking for a break away. Short drive away from Glasgow and very easy to find with Kirsty’s directions. The accommodation is stunning; inside and out. Inside is very comfortable, spotlessly clean with excellent amenities provided. Outside is gorgeous at night with the outside lights and of course the hot tub. The hot tub is modern and spacious. The fact that it is uncovered did not put us off at all. The view at night is brilliant and it’s so peaceful. Kirsty and Michael were extremely friendly and helpful and gave us a recommendation for dinner at The Highgrove; just a four minute drive away. We had a fantastic weekend away and we will definitely be back in the future.”
