“Fabulous stay - beautiful location”
Reviewed 8 October 2014 for a stay in September 2014

My elderly parents and I visited South Ayrshire from Canada this past September. We did a fair bit of commuting back and forth from Troon to Ayr, to visit with an ill relative. We stayed at Curlew Cottage for a total of 3 weeks.

It was lovely to have such a great accommodation to come home to at the end of the day. The cottage itself has everything you need to make your stay comfortable, the garden is lovely for relaxing with a glass of wine, and the seaside in Troon is breathtaking - only 5 minutes away. Amenities were near enough to walk to - the bus into Ayr was just at the end of the crescent. The crescent itself was very quiet. We had a lovely stay and our hosts could not have been more accommodating. Highly recommend Curlew Cottage to others. I am hoping to return next year with my husband for a real vacation. Great for couples or families.

“Curlew Cottage was a home from home”
Reviewed 17 August 2014 for a stay in August 2014

Just returned from our holiday at Curlew Cottage.Our stay was very comfortable and the attention to detail was excellent! The extra touches of milk and bread on arrival and the great range of cleaning/kitchen supplies made life a lot easier on arrival and was very much appreciated.The cottage was in a lovely quiet location and yet easily accessible to the beach and Troon town.The weather also managed to be good to us most of our stay,so a good break was had by all.Thanks to Murray for making us so welcome and we hope to return to Curlew again in the future.

“Absolutely spot on and we will definitely use this as our first choice when visiting Troon in the future”

We booked this property as it was central to visiting family members around Ayrshire. I can't thank Murray enough for the fantastic service from initial enquiry through to the stay itself. The cottage has been updated throughout but has kept many of the original charming features. The kitchen facilities had absolutely everything we needed and having Wifi in the cottage was an added bonus.
For anyone who doesn't know Troon, the location is perfect. It is within walking distance of the train station and the town which has many restaurants, bars and shops.
Murray is in the process of improving the cottage further with some work on the front and back garden and we can't wait to see this upon our return.
Curlew Cottage is definitely our property of choice now when we visit family in Ayrshire.

“Lovely cottage in great location”
Reviewed 27 July 2014 for a stay in June 2014

This is a lovely newly renovated cottage in a great location. Nicely decorated and spotlessly clean. Nice garden that gets the sun all day. Really comfortable pillows and beds and very quiet spot.
