“Fantastic Accomodation - Excellent Value”
Reviewed 9 September 2017 for a stay in September 2017

This property is truly well worth the cost, it is in a good location for many of the attractions of South West Scotland, Ayrshire and the Isle of Arran. The location of the property is somewhat secluded down a track but it is such a tranquil location surrounded by fields and the River Ayr.
The owners Linda and Bob Forbes live on site but apart from the most friendliest of greetings you seldom see them but they are always available if required.
The Barn is extremely comfortable, it is in superb condition with all the modern appliances one would require, there is Wifi which is reliable and adequate for most peoples needs ( you are, after all , on holiday !) The family bathroom and en-suite are very spacious both having large walk in showers with a powerful water flow.
On arrival you will find Linda and Bob have provided a jar of homemade marmalade, a home made loaf, eggs, fruit and milk for you to have as they say " breakfast on them"
We would not hesitate to return and neither would our dog Molly who loved the place even though she was wary of the cows that are in some of the fields. So if you are looking for a holiday cottage in this area then The Barn should be your number one choice. There is also another property on the site, The Stables , which from what the occupants told us is just as well appointed as The Barn.

“Feels just like home.”
Reviewed 2 November 2016 for a stay in October 2016

The Barn at Daldorch is an idyllic place to stay when visiting Ayrshire. It is quite comfortable and the amenities are top-notch. The hosts could not be more gracious and friendly. The views around the Barn at Doldorch are gorgeous. The River Ayr runs nearby and the flowing water can be heard through the copse that forms the edge of the property. In the front are hedge-bordered fields with grazing livestock, fat pheasants, soaring eagles and several other wild birds for visitors to watch.

Liked best: The fresh-baked bread and homemade marmalade upon arrival
Liked least: The track back to the property was very bumpy, however, the owner was working on improvements while we were there.

“A great holiday cottage that has everything”
Reviewed 13 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

This was our 2nd visit here, & we were pleased to stay again. Everything in or around the cottage is of superb quality, all of which adds to your comfort. Seclusion is a big bonus here, but shops, restaurants & takeaway outlets are all within 10 minutes. Ayr with it's large shops other attractions is about 20 minutes away. Troon & Turnberry are easily reached from here, so for us golfers "The Barn" is a great base.
