Myself and my family stayed at Doonbank Cottage in September 2013 and loved every minute of it. There was plenty of room for our party of 4 adults with spacious, comfortable bedrooms and the large living room. We also loved the well stocked library. The best part was the secluded outside space though. We had several walks in the private... More

We have just spent a wonderful week in this beautiful cottage and have already booked to go for Xmas and new year 2013. Everything was perfect from the cottage itself to the amazing grounds its situated in. We went in the winter and it was lovely so I should imagine the summer nights having a BBQ would be amazing.

We have just returned from a week at this cottage, we have had a relaxing break in the spacious yet cosy place. The open fire in the evenings was lovely, the view in the garden of the river Doon is amazing. Our three Jack Russell's had a great time in the garden and walking along the river. I would recommend... More

We have been staying in holiday cottages in most parts of Scotland for over 12 years now, and can honestly say Doonbank Cottage is without doubt the finest we have found for both people and their pets. We have just returned from a truly memorable week. The weather was better than we could have hoped for, indeed it was a... More

My family plus our five boarder collies stayed here over the August Bank Holiday and had one of our best breaks yet. The house was clean, spacious and well set up with everything we needed and the grounds were absolutely fantastic for the dogs who I think had a better time than we did. Easy to get to and perfectly... More

We stayed at Doonbank Cottage back in June and we thoroughly enjoyed the peaceful setting the cottage provided. Set back from the estate you totally feel like you're in the country rather than a village. The gorgeous flowers were in full bloom during our stay and we had Rabbits grazing on the lawn morning and night ( much to our... More

The house is set in wonderful grounds and having good weather for the week meant we could use it to the full. Great walks along the river. Very relaxing.Easy access to Ayr as well just 10 mins drive away. Ample grounds for our dog Sweep to roam freely as well. Spotlessly clean. As I mentioned earlier we used the cottage... More

This has to be one of the most relaxing breaks we have had. Doonbank is a high quality accommodation, warm, comfortable and with so many personal bits & pieces it is not like a holiday let. The house looks even better than the photograph suggests. Unfortunately January is perhaps not the best time of year for a garden to look... More
