  • An unusual 1970's log cabin in the heart of Ayrshire
  • A large deck outside for evenings under the stars
  • Surrounded by 6,500 acres of moorland, a Site of Special Scientific Interest
Property code: CA352

The house sits in the ruggedly gorgeous area of moorland where many species of bird reside — take a scenic walk along the River Ayr way to discover these wonderful animals in their natural habitat. For more cosmopolitan pursuits, head to Cumnock, a historic town nestled around the meeting place of the Glaisnock and Lugar Waters. Or, if there are keen golfers in your party, several magnificent golf courses, including Turnberry and Troon lay within 40 miles, perfect for a day trip.

 

Arrive at the property through miles of unobserved countryside. Tucked away amid the fields, it appears as a gorgeous, grass-roofed mirage. Inside, cabin-like rooms offer cosy, sociable space — a living room with an open fire and a plethora of sofas, a kitchen, drawing room, and dining room, so you can gather together and enjoy telling tales of your day. On the same level, the bedrooms offer a variety of hideaways for every guest, including one family bedroom in each wing of the house, with a double, bunk bed and single bed — ideal for growing families. Each bedroom is clad with wood with delightful rustic details, so you'll really feel like you're out in the sticks.

 

Outside, there's ample space to enjoy the great outdoors at your feet. With a massive decked area wrapping the property, with picnic furniture for al fresco dining, and a private garden, you'll be able to bring the party into the fresh air.

 

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

Please note there is a refundable £250 security deposit for this property payable closer to the start of your holiday.

As this is such a fantastic rural area of Scotland, it's ideal for those looking to step back from the modern world and get back to nature. Pull on your walking boots and head out on one of the many nearby trails which pass your front door. They include the River Ayr Way, where it's quite possible you'll spot an array of wildlife including black grouse, hen harriers and short-eared owls. Keep your camera handy! The town of Mauchline (7 miles) and the village of Muirkirk (10 miles) both have a variety of shops for picking up supplies, while the former has a traditional pub and restaurant as well. For a relaxing day on the coast, head 16 miles west where you'll find the many fabulous sandy beaches of Ayrshire. Keen golfers are spoilt for choice in this area, with the championship courses of Troon and Prestwick both within 20 miles of the cabin. Guests of all ages will love exploring the woods, beaches and parkland at the National Trust for Scotland's magnificent Culzean Castle, which is a 25-mile drive away. Perched on the cliffs, it's a super day out for all the family with 40 buildings and secret follies to be discovered along the way.
