A spacious five-bedroom period property offering a comfortable location in an enviable village location close to the sandy beach, golf club and activity centre.

As the largest village on the Isle of Arran, Brodick offers a range of amenities for visitors, including independent stores, friendly pubs and restaurants serving local produce. Take a Segway tour through the Arran countryside; slide, swim and jump your way through a gorge walking adventure or take to the water on a sea kayaking experience. For a more relaxed day out, head to the sandy beach at Brodick or take the footpath to the quieter beach at Strabane. Lace up your walking boots for a hike through Kildonan Forest (13 miles) to reach the spectacular Eas Mor waterfall or wonder at the giant boulders and ‘Sleeping Giant' at the Fallen Rocks (7.5 miles).

Tucked away off Shore Road and enjoying a set-back location, your imposing holiday home is approached along the driveway leading through the lawned front garden. Step through the front door into the grand entrance hallway with sweeping staircase and space to leave coats and boots. With its large bay window, soothing tones and plump sofas, your living room is an inviting space to relax after a busy day, catch up on family news or simply sit and watch your favourite TV programme. Younger guests have their own playroom with areas for board games, puzzles and space to sprawl and watch TV. Gather the whole family around the elegant dining table for special dinners or leisurely suppers, comfortably seating up to 14 guests, so you can sit and socialise late into the evening. Your kitchen is a cook's dream equipped with electric range cooker, fridge/freezer, microwave and dishwasher. When it's time for bed, head up the wide staircase to the galleried landing where you will find four of the five bedrooms. Two super king-size bedrooms have comfy beds dressed in thick duvets with bright soft furnishings and ample storage space. A further king-size bedroom is warm and inviting with a tub chair to curl up in to relax with the latest novel. Younger guests can enjoy sleepovers in the family room with two sets of bunk beds dressed in colourful duvets. The first of two spacious bathrooms is situated on this floor with a shower over bath and WC. Heading back downstairs you will find a further light and airy king-size bedroom with en-suite shower room and WC and a second family bathroom with shower over bath and WC.

To the front of the property is a large lawn area ideal for sunbathing or al fresco picnics. Take your morning coffee at the picnic bench looking out to the countryside or enjoy a sunset supper on warmer evenings. To the rear of the property is an enclosed garden with artificial grass, perfect for ball games, and a separate play area for toddlers and young guests. There is driveway with parking for five cars.

Very spacious for a large group and very well equipped in the kitchen. The well stocked playroom was a welcome surprise. Good location for shops.

The house was great for us for 3 nights for a family break. The kids especially had everything they needed and could run around very safely!

Great house in a central location. Garden areas a little tired and rubble lying around. Derelict shed would be a great secure storage area for bikes etc.

Great house location and size/facilities.

Arandel is a very nice, spacious house. Very clean. We particularly liked the kitchen/diner with the big table - plenty of space to seat everyone comfortably. The location is ideal. It's only a minute's walk from one of the two supermarkets in Brodick, but because it is tucked behind another house, it is off the main street and very quiet. The BIG Read morepark which is just outside the house is great for kids to run around and play football. Plus, it's only 2 minutes away from the beach by foot. Everybody had a great time and I can't think of a single thing that I would change. We took a car over on the ferry, but everything is so close by that a car isn't really necessary. The bus stop is very close. Hide

Spacious, well maintained and well positioned. Clean and well equipped. This was a great house to be in with lots of young kids. Handy to have a Co-op, a park and a little beach at the end of the road and we made the most of the playcentre and the lovely swimming pool at the luxurious Auchrannie Resort a 2 minute drive/10 minute walk away.

Eight of us including two children stayed for a week. The property is a great size and could have easily taken another four. The location is excellent, close to the shops, the beach and within walking distance of the castle and gardens. We did feel that the property is starting to need a bit of TLC especially the boiler. That aside, we wouldn't hesRead moreitate to recommend it. For good family meals with entertainment thrown in, we recommend Fiddlers - just five minutes away. Hide

Arandel is a lovely property full of character but also has all the modern conveniences expected of a well equipped holiday home. It is spacious and has a good number of bathrooms for a house which can accommodate so many.

We thoroughly enjoyed the spacious rooms for all, the safe and private gardens, the imaginatively equipped playroom and the very sociable dining space. Top marks for a well equipped kitchen (had great fun with the ice-maker!) and also for the Arran monopoly game, the children enjoyed spotting the place names on days out.

Taking the boat to Holy Isle with another climb, the views are breathtaking, visited the new intriguing play structure and cafe in Brodick Castle gardens, cycling to Lochranza, swimming at Auchrannie pool and playing family football and rounders on Ormidale recreation field, so conveniently close. Three of us even had our picture published in the Arran Banner as we took advantage of a family silk-painting artist-led session at the Art exhibition in Lochranza village hall! Thank you for our wonderful holiday house. Just one little request could we have a small table in the kitchen area to provide extra workspace for our shared cooking prep? See you again soon. Hide

I booked this property for my wife's 50th. This was also my sister-in-law's birthday so we needed a place to accommodate 10 of us.
