Ladyburn House is a secluded country house set in 4½ acres of mature formal and informal private gardens. The gardens feature a croquet lawn, large barbecue area and extensive decking giving way to a glen where you can often spot deer and a pair of buzzards. The Lady Burn (for which the house is named) runs along the garden border, with two resident herons and otters.
Ladyburn House was gifted by Robert the Bruce, king of Scots, and became the Dower House to the Kilkerran Estate. The property is lovingly furnished with modern comforts yet retains its character features, such as the ornate cornicing in the living and dining room. The living rooms and dining room feature cosy wood burners, while the well-equipped kitchen hosts a wine cooler, range cooker, washing machine and tumble dryer.
All nine bedrooms have their own en-suite with a rainfall shower, with the master bedroom boasting an en-suite with a shower and frees tanding bath. All bedrooms have been furnished with guests comfort in mind, with USB bedside plug sockets. Two bedrooms feature four-poster kingsize beds, one kingsize bedroom, three double rooms and three super kingsize or twin rooms, one of which is on the ground floor.
The national Cycle Route 7 is within 1 mile of the house, making it perfect for keen cyclists. There are many beautiful rolling hills and coastal routes to enjoy with spectacular scenery. The house has an outbuilding which can be utilised to store bikes in when not in use. Ladyburn House is set within the heart of the Ayrshire golf country.
