Description

This period country house dating back to the 1600’s is perfectly situated for holidays on the east coast of the Firth of Clyde in South Ayrshire.  Originally gifted by Robert the Bruce, it later became the Dower House to the Kilkerran Estate and has recently enjoyed a striking renovation to suit large house parties and family get together's.  This luxury holiday home enjoys three principle reception rooms, all with attractive period features and excellent views over the surrounding gardens, as well as a modern well stocked kitchen, games room and small children’s play area.  The accommodation is spread over two floors with all nine bedrooms enjoying ensuite bathrooms.  The ground floor bedroom has a seating area within the shower for those less steady on their feet. 

This well-appointed property sitting in mature grounds is surrounded by attractive gardens consisting of a network of lawns (including one for croquet), interspersed with garden beds, herbaceous borders, shrubs and mature woodland  An extensive decking area with BBQ and outdoor furniture provides a perfect entertainment area for house guests. 

**This property is currently only being let on the lower occupancy in 2020**

Only 5 of the 9 bedrooms will be made available to families looking to book a holiday from August 2020 through to December.  

From Christmas 2020, all nine bedrooms will become available, along with an indoor hot tub and lounger area and deck in the renovated Stables area.

Prices are quoted on the higher occupancy initially and the rate will be adjusted according to your group size and time of year you wish to book.
