On a hillside overlooking the town of Ayr which is set amidst rolling farmland of owner’s working farm, with stunning views across to the Carrick Hills, Ayr town and the Isle of Arran, sits Acorn Cottage, a conversion, which has been beautifully decorated and furnished to offer comfortable and cosy accommodation on two levels. The double bedroom with en-suite bathroom is reached by a staircase from the downstairs lounge and kitchen and the shared garden offers fantastic views of the surrounding countryside.

Acorn Cottage is in a quiet location within the working farm of Kirklandholm, on a hillside only five miles from Ayr, where there is a wealth of good eating places, shops, hotels and bar. Nearby there is plenty to do, with several quality golf courses, including the world famous Royal Troon and Turnberry, beautiful parks at Bellisle and Rozelle, historic Culzean Castle, Crossraguel Abbey and Burns Cottage, many walks along Ayrshire’s 80 miles of unspoilt coastal scenery, and not forgetting a day at the races at Ayr racecourse.
